Early Guess As To The 2011 Week One Depth Chart

So, the first depth chart of the 2011 was released today and, yeah, it's pretty stupid. Like many of you, I don't take this first list too seriously. If I did, I probably would lose my mind. There's absolutely no logical reason for Mike Pollak to be starting again, and Eric Foster as the back-up nose tackle is like having Pat McAfee as the back-up strong safety.

So, instead of complaining about a depth chart that is clearly either A) Not meant to be taken seriously, or B) Drafted by total morons, I submit my first, best 'guess' as to what the Week One 53-man roster will be.

QB: Peyton Manning, Dan Orlovsky (Yes, I dare to dream of a Colts team sans Curtis Painter)

RB: Joseph Addai, Donald Brown, Delone Carter, Javarris James, Devin Moore

WR: Reggie Wayne, Pierre Garcon, Austin Collie, Anthony Gonzalez, Blair White

TE: Dallas Clark, Jacob Tamme, Brody Eldridge, Justin Snow

LT: Anthony Castonzo, Jeff Linkenbach

LG: Jacques McClendon, Joe Reitz

OC: Jeff Saturday, Jake Kirkpatrick

RG: Ben Ijalana, Kyle DeVan

RT: Ryan Diem

Defense after jump...

RE: Dwight Freeney, Jerry Hughes

NT: Antonio Johnson, Ricardo Mathews, Veteran Free Agent (insert Pat Williams here, please)

UT: Fili Moala, Drake Nevis, Tommie Harris

LE: Robert Mathis, Jamaal Anderson

WILL: Kavell Conner, Ernie Sims

MIKE: Gary Brackett, Cody Glenn

SAM: Pat Angerer, Tyjuan Hagler (I think he will be re-signed, but that's just me guessing)

CB: Jerraud Powers, Kevin Thomas, Chris Rucker

CB: Justin Tryon, Jacob Lacey, Brandon King

FS: Antoine Bethea, Veteran Free Agent (insert Darren Sharper, or the like, here)

SS: Melvin Bullitt, Joe Lefeged

P: Pat McAfee

K: Adam Vinatieri

Kick return is Devin Moore. Punt returns are Blair White.
