How....How....HOW did we miss Darren Sproles??? We let our arch enemy, who stole our chances at a super bowl win two years ago, take this guy! This is the guy that tore us apart in the play offs couple of times and is a big reason the chargers have beat us in the playoffs in the past. A winners rule of thumb is always “If you can’t beat them join them!”. We can’t beat him, so why didn’t we sign him!!!!!!
They got a steal on him too, only $3.5 million a year for 4 years!! For his skill that’s a steal. He fits in perfect with the Colt! PERFECT! Like Reggie Bush (who everyone wanted to join the colts), he can run the ball well, catch the ball, and line up as a receiver when needed (that is a handy skill in our no huddle offense when we don’t substitute. Helps Peyton develop mismatches), and is a heck of a running back. He is not quite as good of a blocker as Addai, but we could have made due no problem. Unlike Reggie Bush who just signed a 10mil, 2 year deal with the Dolphins, Sproles is a bit cheaper.
Why!!! Why!!!! Why??????????????
1) Salary cap maybe?? Well how can we justify paying Kelvin Hayden 8 million. Cut him and get Sproles for a couple million and pick up another decent CB that isn’t overpaid.
2) I can understand passing up on most of the free agents out there…
Albert Haynes worth?? -- No Way! Lazy mo fo
Ocho Cinco - eeehhh…Colts avoid drama queens who are distracted by all their side shows.
Plexxico Burress – Going to be more than we can afford.
Most of the others are the same, not worth the price tag or more than we can afford. Sproles wasn’t though! Come on Polian/Irsay, and you wonder why Manning isn’t jumping to sign a contract. He realizes that if he cuts them a break and accepts a little less money, Irsay/Polians will screw up the roster choice so much that he might as well just get every last penny out of them since they are just going to keep or screw around any saving he would give them. Cheap Undrafted Free Agents are not going to fix all our problems!!!
