Tell me what yall think?????

Trade Edgerrin James for Miami 1st pick which is the 2nd overall pick in the draft.

I love Derrick Johnson and I badly want him so either take him with the second pick

or trade down for two lower 1st round draft picks like the cowboys and pick up possibly Antrelle Rolle with there first rounder which I believe its the 8th pick and maybe Travis Johnson will fall to them with there second 1 rounder pick.

then definitely without a doubt trade the colts late first round for Patrick Surtain who I think is a solid corner.

Then take there second round pick and draft a OG, RB


What does everybody think about that?????

Ok really think about it. Edgerrin is a top 3 runningback out of the most successful college football program MIAMi HURRICANES.


Edgerrin James is definitely worth two later first round picks especially for teams that live on running the ball like pretty much more than have the teams that dont have a good quarterback!!!!
I would rate the runningbacks like this:

1Ladanian Tomlinson
2Jamal Lewis
3Edgerrin James
4Priest Holmes (only because hes old)
5Shaun Alexander
6Clinton Portis
7Corry Dillon
8Dominic Davis

As amazing as Derrick Johnson is, there is no way that the Colts trade Edge. People see Peyton's stats and think that this team can get away with an average RB. This is completely false. Edge makes this offense work because he is such a threat running the ball. This makes teams respect play action, which then opens up the whole offense. He is also a major threat catching the ball out of the backfield. The only way that this trade would have happened would be if Alexander got away from Seattle and the Colts could bring him in to replace Edge.

I like the idea of bringing in Surtain, but they can't due to his ridiculously high salary. If they could rework his contract, it would be a great deal though. I think the Colts should do all they can to move up in the draft to land Antrel or at least Pac-Man. The problem that they have is that they cannot land a premier prospect because they are always picking with very low 1st rounders. They need one big-time playmaker in the secondary and an impact LB and they are set. Its just tough because they don't have too much money and they don't have high enough picks to really make some moves in the draft. This year's and next years 1st to move up to land Antrel if he slips past the Browns at 3 and the Titans at 6.

The Cowboys have the 11th pick by the way, Cardinals are at 8. Travis Johnson won't get past the Bengals at 17, but Channing Crowder or Odell Thurman would be great LBs for the Colts to nab if they had the Cowboys 2nd pick.

That is an asinine statement. DJ has not shown that kind of ability to get to the QB, let alone shed blocks. If you said Ray Lewis, I might agree with you.

Will there ever be another LB with 20 sacks? Maybe. Will it be DJ? 99.9% sure the answer is no.

Dominic Davis over Ahman Green, Fred Taylor, Duece McCallister, and Curtis Martin???

Thats pretty bold anderson...I disagree, but lets see what he does if the Texans can land Alex Barron and he can run behind a pretty good OL. On that list, only LD doesn't have a great OL, which is a testiment to how amazing Ladanian really is.

Ok first of all We are getting rid of Edgerrin James because we cant afford to pay a running that much when we need all that help on defense. Dwightfreeney the best DE in the game has to be signed next year so we got to think about now and the future.

TOP RATED Defensive Ends

1Dwight Freeney
2Julies Peppers
3Richard Seymor
4John Abraham


So Why downgrade from Edgerrin James to Shawn Alexander and pay about the same amount of money the Edge wants. STUPID; So if we have to take Miami 1 rounder and draft Cedric Benson and sign him to a long rookie contract and then save your money for defense.

you just franchised Edge and Peyton is willing to take a pay cut to keep him around. Franchising him buys the Colts time to work out a long-term contract ala Walter Jones. When he's healthy, he's the 2nd best RB in the game (LD) so it would be stupid to get rid of him. If Miami signed him anyway, then their two 1st rounders would then be worth it. They could do serious damage in the draft with two 1st rounders in the next 2 drafts. Benson doesn't fit the system as well as Ronnie Brown would because Brown has better catching ability out of the backfield. I just don't think they aren't just going to choose Freeney over Edge, though I have to admit, replacing Freeney would be harder than Edge. Perfect world, they work a long-term deal with both by Peyton reworking his contract for the betterment of the team. Regardless, trade up and draft Antrel if the don't get Miami's first round pick...
