Pardon me this morning if I don't immediately write about this Brett Favre silliness. I kind of had a plan for today's coverage, and I'm not going to stop it just because Colts owner Jim Irsay is goofing off on Twitter.
Speaking of goofing off, I re-evaluated the Colt roster this weekend and I now have my third guess as to what the 53-man roster will be. Just FYI: Rosters must get cutdown to 80 in one week.
Below are my estimated 53. If you agree, disagree, or partly agree or disagree with a few tweaks, comment away.
QB: Peyton Manning,
LT: Anthony Castonzo
RG: Ryan Diem, Kyle DeVan
RT: Ben Ijalana
Defense after jump...
FS: Antoine Bethea, Free Agent**
P: Pat McAfee
Kick returns are Free Agent WR. Punt returns are Joe Lefeged.
As you can see, I still have Kelvin Hayden listed because I think he will re-sign with Indy. Tommie Harris is gone. I've watched Ollie Ogbu close, and he offers more now than Harris. Heck, Tyler Brayton offers more than Harris, and unlike Harris, Brayton can play three spots on the d-line. I was almost inclined to cut Jamaal Anderson, but I still think he can make the roster over Eric Foster. Anderson is a better DE than Foster, and Foster is simply not needed anymore as a pass rushing DT because of Drake Nevis.
I think Blair White gets IRed, or starts 2011 on PUP.
