Marv gets a 7-year deal

When you lead by 30 points in the first quarter you know the team is going to pass and you can cheat. It's not that bad yet usually but they obviously win games with their offense and they're trying to keep it intact. I agree with GLG, with draft picks and another year together this defense is improving. Hell, they could be working on their 2nd super bowl in a row next year.

you dont always have to add a player to improve a D. that defense is quite young with guys like Frreney, Doss, Morris isnt that old. Adding a CB in the draft could give them a solid D next year.


yes, youre exactly right, all the colts d questions will be answered at the 28th pick of next years draft. :-t

Lots of quality corners (Webster, Miller) that can possibly be had at that slot. At the very worst you can get an impact LB like Blackstock or Greenway.

I'm sorry, but I would not break up one of the most prolific QB/WR combos in NFL history just to get draft picks on defense. You always take chances drafting anyone; with Marv on the payroll you know what you're getting. If the high pick busts, they just made both sides of the ball worse.

I think this was a key move for the Colts. Yes, their defense sucks and yes, they could end up like KC next year (but I highly doubt it). All they have to do is actually go out and find some players that want to work for a championship and don't need the big bucks to be coaxed into it. KC didn't do that last year, and now they are paying the price. Changing coaches doesn't solve anything. Getting players who have sound fundamentals and work hard towards the end goal can solve it.

To me, the Colts would have been way worse off getting rid of Marvin and Edge (if they can tag him). Those guys demand way too much respect from defenses to break them up.

If they keep that offense intact for next year and improve to be a middle of the road defense, they may really have something there.

Exactly. If I ain't broke, don't fix it.

The Colts offense will always keep them in games. No reason to lessen the squad. I would be flat out pissed if the Vikings didn't sign back Moss in order to free up cap room to sign a defensive player. Just like you will never see the Ravens get rid of Ed Reed for a WR.

Also, draft picks are WAY underrated. Ray Lewis was drafted with the 26th pick in 1996.

Be glad the Colts found a way to sign both James and Marv if they want to.

It was a good move to sign him, but couldn't they have done it for less money? I mean, by the time this contract is over he'll be making $10 million when he's 100 years old.

Won't matter, he'll never see the money from the last 3-4 years of that contract.
