    Default Colts re-sign D. Rhodes

    By Mike Chappell @ Indystar
    http://www.indystar.com/article/2010....com|default|s

    In need of help at running back, the Indianapolis Colts have turned to an old friend.

    Dominic Rhodes, who’s been with the team on two separate occasions, has been re-signed. He most recently played with the UFL’s Florida Tuskers.

    Rhodes’ addition might be an indication the Colts’ top three running backs may not be available or be limited for Thursday night’s critical game in Nashville against the Tennessee Titans.

    Starter Joseph Addai has missed the past six games with nerve damage in one of his shoulders. Backups Donald Brown and Mike Hart suffered ankle injuries in last Sunday’s loss to Dallas.

    Rhodes has rushed for 3,114 yards and 26 touchdowns in nine NFL seasons. He last played for the Colts in 2008 when he rushed for 538 yards and six touchdowns.

    Rhodes, who joined the Colts as an undrafted rookie in 2001, was instrumental in the team’s Super Bowl XLI victory over the Chicago Bears. He rushed 21 times for 113 yards and one touchdown in the 29-17 victory.

    This really makes one wonder how badly Edgerrin has deteriorated.

    At least Dom's been playing and should be ready to go on Thursday.

    I question that myself Edge is 32 years old and he didn't have nearly as much wear and tear while playing here. Then again when his girlfriend died of cancer nearly a couple years ago I also think that altered things since he's the lone parent now.

    Am I the only one who's been slightly impressed with Javarris James?

    I know his YPC sucks, but I really can't recall too many runs that weren't near the goal line.

    I have too.

    Maybe impressed isn't the exact word I would use but he is doing much better than I thought he would.

    It's nice to see Dom back, but I'm still going to assume he'll be cut here in a few weeks unless Addai or Hart is headed to IR.
    Stop quoting people I have on ignore!

    Not sure why we brought in Rhodes when we could have saved money and sent Bill and Chris Polian out there to run behind our o-line.

    Well if they got hurt I don't think many fans would be nearly as upset

    I'm hoping the only running the Polians do is running out of town after the season.... and keep running...
    Nuntius was right. I was wrong. Frank Vogel has retained his job.

    Damn straight, and now Bob Sanders has finally been placed on IR. This team needs a major, MAJOR, overhaul of their decision makers.

    Screw Haislip, Jonathan Bender ought to be REALLY good at blocking field goals. 7'0" with a good vertical to boot.
    The poster "pacertom" since this forum began (and before!). I changed my name here to "Slick Pinkham" in honor of the imaginary player That Bobby "Slick" Leonard picked late in the 1971 ABA draft (true story!)

    Really? The Colts have been one of the best teams in history this decade.

    That would impress me if the team was QB'd by some journeymen QB's during that time.

    It would impress me if the team was making deep playoff runs and/or overachieving in the playoffs.

    But year after year of having the same problems that limit the team in the playoffs, let alone leave the team thin when it comes to backups has worn on me. I don't like wasting the Manning years.

    These Colts won't be judged solely on their regular season record of the decade. They'll be judged and compared on their playoff and SB record. And when taken into context with that regular season record it's disappointing.

    Polian's arrogance has worn on me.

    I believe Polian suffers from 'smartest man in the room syndrome' which hinders him from doing the obvious because he doesn't want to appear to appease fans and pundits. ...he has to be 'the smartest man in the room'... so that requires him to not do the obvious and instead do something different.
