John Tait would definitely be a good one.

Considering our DT situation, I wouldn't mind having Keith Traylor back to add to the rotation. Heck, I wouldn't even mind having Terdell Sands back at this point.

That OL that was claimed off waivers by Indy

Not that many really over the years...The players we keep and the players we let go have a lot in common....most of them haven't been very good.

Tait is certainly better than what we have now but he was paid far more than he was worth. So letting him go wasn't a bad decision assuming you have a smart GM that had a back up plan...Unfortunately that isn't/wasn't the case.

Donnie Edwards and Joe Horn are the only ones that really stands out that we let go and obviously should have kept. Keith Traylor probably should be on the list...The guy doesn't stay long with any team, probably cause of his weight and they expect him to regress, yet he keeps playing well everywhere he goes.

That OL that is Indy

Ryan Lillja?

I don't think we ever had the entire Indy OL.

And he is certainly no world beater...They cut him at the end of last year only to bring him back...He was out there and free to be signed by anyone that wanted him just a few months ago.

And keep in mind the Colts OL isn't very good. Manning's vast knowledge of his offense and his opponentís defense along with his ability to make adjustments at the line and keep them out of bad plays is what keeps the Colts QB off his back.

Despite having a 4,000 yard passing offense that stretches defenses they still don't run the ball very well. That will give you a good indication about how good that line really is. James only averaged 4.2 yards and was horrible in short yardage situations behind that line despite having that passing game to open things up.

I would trade I-65 for a couple used duffle bags and jock straps.

I thought the news that Lillja was released turned out to be a false report.
But that is neither here nor there (whatever the hell that means).
I was just asking if runnercyclist was referring to him, and joking about his wording.

T-Rich

Joe Horn

Funny, those were my top two as well. Donnie Edwards would sure be an upgrade over Bell too. And although overpriced, we'd be in much better shape if Tait was still on the roster.

Traylor is amazing. I saw him playing for Miami, and he was just an animal inside. Having Jason Taylor on the outside helps, but he would be a huge upgrade over anyone we have inside. At least he plays consistant.

Key Fox would be upgrade over Bell.
Someone just needs to beat some sense into Gunt.

His pride is hurting this team.

That would be a great one at this point. I also agree with the Donnie Edwards viewpoint.

Yea its too bad we had to let him go. A former #1 pick that we developed that was coming into his prime as he left. YOu hate to see guys like that leave. I do understand why he left. Football is a business and he was just trying to get te most $$$ he could.

At this point, I am happy with our LBers so would not care either way in regards to Edwards. Now when we let him get away, it was a huge mistake. But now, eh.

Lilja was actually my first thought. Totally agree with T-Rich, that was another mistake like Donnie. Tait is not nor was not worth his price, I have no problem with him gone.

I would love for us to have a Traylor or even Terd so we could go 3-4 and take advantage of the depth we have at LB. That is our best, deepest position on the team, a 3-4 would allow us to put teh best football players on the field at once.

Never thought I'd say this, but my top right now would be Todd Collins. I have no idea how Huard stayed in this league for 10 years not being able to throw farther than 10 yards downfield.
