    I don't have a problem treading Edge. Personally I like him, maybe not as good as Faulk or Dickerson or Bently that we have had.

    Rhodes is an okay back. I still think we need a speed burner. Remember Edge just doesn't run the ball, he blocks A LOT and can catch and run. I would love to have Carnell "Cadilac" Williams, but he won't last that long, 19th pick in the first round. The other problem is that what ever back we draft will want "edge" money. Do we pay for an untested back? Whick is what we would have to do if we trade Edge.

    I would like to see us change our Offensive scheme. Maybe less passing, more running and more ball control. That is the way that the Patriots won. Not having the defense play 2/3 of the game will make them better when rested. (Remember these are big guys and they need more than a 2 minutes breather.) They were just worn out by the end of the game. Though our running game sucked against the Pats.

    I know this is going against everything the Colts have done for the last few years. The problem is that our Offense isn't suited for that. We don't run full backs as lead blockers, we use TE's. I don't think our TE's are the size of a FB.

    Franchise Edge, then trade him. Use the 2 picks for Defense. Polian has this way of drafting quality defense in the later rounds. Use our first pick for a Running Back, and Second round picks for a corner and a WR if we can't keep Reggie Wayne.

    Yes Miami does not have a 2nd round pick. I think Edge would be worth more than that now that I think about. If AJ was worth a 2nd round pick, the edge would be worth like a 1st and a 4th.

    From what I remember he's a solid blocker too.
    Not really, and he isnt a good catcher either.

    Marshall Faulk in his prime was worth only 2nd and 5th rounders. Why? Contract fears. Same thing with Edge. Though any team trading for him would come to an agreement first, the Colts wouldn't exactly be able to hold any team hostage given the huge amount of talented veteran running backs who will be availible this off-season.

    Yeah I didnt really think about that. I jsut thought about the talent levels between Feely and James.

    Funny that the Colts use him to return kickoffs then.

    Even funnier that my heart stops every time he's back there........and not in the Dante Hall kind of way.........

    Exactly. I was very critical of his decision making on returning kicks this year. I have many requests for next year but I'd be content with an least one good to great CB that can play a whole season and doesn't have to play 29 yards off the WR and one big nasty run blocking mofo on the oline that can be physical...

    If we did let him go which I would hope we would trade him rather than letting him walk.For who?Someone earlier in the season said trade him to Miami for Zach Thomas or someone on their D.
    That same person said we should trade him to the rams for S. Jackson and something more.....but that was also shot down.
