McPissed at the McCargo McScrewjob

Yeah, pretty much in the span of just 24 hours, most of us went from Hell Yeah! to WTF? As shake n bake posted last night, John McCargo NOT a Colt. He failed his physical because he had a herniated disc. Trade voided. He is now back with Buffalo. Nobody has a clue when this injury occurred. We don't know if Buffalo tried to pull a fast one on Indy, and nothing against Brian and other Bills fans, but I wouldn't be surprised if they did try to swindle Indy out of a draft pick. In any case, trades between Buffalo and Indy will not happen again for a long while. It is hard to trust a team again when they trade you damaged goods.

So, what now?

The herniated disc will likely land McCargo on IR. So, any hope of Buffalo cutting him and Indy picking him up is about nil. The only NT the Colts have on the roster now is Daniel Muir. They may re-sign LaJuan Ramsey, or look for someone else (former Kent State DT Colin Ferrel?).

In any case, the DT situation has been as close to a nightmare this season as it can get. Pitcock, Ed, McCargo... just one big friggin' mess. Can't fault Bill Polian for trying. He has done everything humanly possible to make the NT position strong. Unfortunately, the people he got just were not good enough mentally or physically. Now the Colts have to suck it up and move on. They played well last week without a player like McCargo. Maybe it can continue.
