The polians always come up short by getting cheap players. They never get veteran leaders to push them over the top. This happend in Buffalo & now here in the colts. Good enough but just short. Manning over the chargers bum, ryan leaf, was an easy pick. He came from a great father. Edge was a high first rounder. Chances are good any first round back will be pretty good. He is good at evaluating un-drafted talent but recently slipped quite a bit. McClendon, Brown, Hughes, Vincent Burns, Daymeion Hughes, ugoh, Quinn Pitcock, pollak, Marcus Howard, Terrance Taylor, Gilbert Gardner, Kendyll Pope, Brandon Burlsworth, etc. All high picks that went nowhere. Wasted high round picks. Then trading good talent, june, peterson, tim jennings, Jake Scott didn't help either. this year they spent money, but cheap money. (Thou good i'll say this time around) Spend some dough to put them over top, Get a team leader. Get a HUGE nose tackle. Trade for a top notch EXPERIENCED left tackle. A rookie will take time to develop. Time we don't have. Manning is older. We have 4 years left. Get a proven corner. Beef up a huge O line and become a power running team so Manning won't have to carry the team on his back and can throw less. I don't have the answers but it seams like power running - top defensive teams win. Trent Dilfer, Brad johnson won super bowls, We should have at least 2+ more rings. We need tougher, stonger players, GYM RATS that don't get hurt. Trade draft picks for proven VET's for urgency reasons. We have to move now not later. Develop people after Peyton is gone.
