    Some pony fans are saying that Freeney is a product of the system and wouldn't necessarily be effective in other defensive schemes.

    Sounds to me like they are trying to justify a silly notion that Freeney would accept a lesser deal to stay in Indy.

    I would say that Freeney and KVB together would have Mr. Manning talking about his offensive line play a lot more after palying the Tians. They could be a quarterback's nightmare. I say bring him on and join his former teammate on defense. I like it!!

    Remember the Schwartz effect.


    No matter how much talent their is on D Schwartz will find a way to de-nut them and have them playing like little scared girly men.

    I hope this year he's able to admit that he's wrong and let us tear loose after Manning. We need to pressure him. We're not going to get anywhere otherwise.

    Do these guys have the same cap figures as the rest of the NFL? Where are they finding all this money? Sounds like the Colts are going to have a Yard Sale of their players after the 2006 season.

    Last year a fluke?

    Mathis has had two straight double digit sack seasons so i doubt that it was. My guess is that they assume freeney will be gone next year so they wanted to sew this guy up for the long term. They didn't draft any DEs so they will have to fill the void next year.

    fact is, they gave $30 mil to a guy who is nothing more than a situational pass rusher. he isnt even a starter.
