    Are Colts Trying to Sign Chargers' LT, Marcus McNeill?

         There's a rumor floating around that the Indianapolis Colts are attempting to upgrade their OL by signing Chargers' LT, Marcus McNeill. McNeill is a restricted free agent...and his signing would require the Chargers to either match the offer, or accept Indy's 1st and 3rd round picks in the upcoming drafft.

         If true, this would be a sly move by Bill Polian. Indy's picks are at the bottom of each round. It's doubtful that they could get a ready for prime time player with their 31st pick...and signing McNeill away from San Diego would be a blow against Indy's most feared competitor in the AFC: http://www.stampedeblue.com/2010/4/4/1404265/xx1090-radio-in-san-diego-colts

    I was saying for weeks that the Pats should pursue McNeill.  He's a BEAST.

    I hope the Chargers keep him away from the Colts, whose line is a weakness.

    I've heard it here, but dont think SD will let him go. They were talkin' $35 million deal. The Chargers have 1st & 3rd roudn tenders on BigMc, Merriman, WR's Floyd & Jackson. So the Chargers will match it unless its a outlandish number. The Colts might offer somethin' but SD  wont let him walk, no way. Sometimes BigMc has a tendency to get burnt off the edge, by really quick ends. Guys like Freeney & Vanden Bosch.  The numbers on the tender for Merriman & Jackson for this year are 3.27M & 3.28M respectively.  AJ is in the power position, not these 4 restricted FAs. What team will give up a 1 & 3 for any of these 4guys? I just dont see McNeill with horseface. Indy might try to drive the number up though.

    Turns out McNeill might not even be the best tackle on his own team:

    This gadget was cited by Mike Reiss as showing that Stephen Neil was one of the best guards in the league.

    It also shows Vollmer and Mankins as among the best at their positions

    Jared Gaither might not be a bad acquisition, though (and much cheaper - could be had for a 2nd round, apparently)

    Let's hope so.  The colts and Manning need serious serious help on their line.  None of their last 3 big draft picks on the Oline have worked out.  They also cut their long time starting right tackle recently.

         Apparently, the rumor about the Colts' interest in the Chargers' Marcus McNeill has been debunked: http://profootballtalk.nbcsports.com/2010/04/09/colts-have-had-no-contact-with-marcus-mcneill/

    Quite the site!  Bookmarked.

     

    Tom Brady is down to #10 in this listing.

     

    Kevin Faulk is above average.  Maroney is below average.

     

    Wes Welker is red hot at #3 in the NFL.  Randy Moss is at least much better than average.  Julian Edelman is average in the NFL, which for a rookie is saying something.  Welker and Edelman were above-average return guys.

     

    Rookie Vollmer is #5 in the NFL for his screen and run blocking.  Kaczur and Light are both average.  Steve Neil and Logan Mankins are stud dudes.  Dan Koppen is average.

     

    Chris Baker is above average.  Ben Watson is below average.  Guess who walked?

     

    Vince Wilfork is #6.  Pryor is almost average, which is great for a late round rookie.

     

    Ty Warren is hot.  Jarvis Green was below average last year.  Goodbye, Jarvis, hello, draft.

     

    Tully Banta-Cain is #6 among 28 OLBs.  He’s balanced against both rushing the quarterback and diagnosing running plays.  I wouldn’t have expected this, given all the poor publicity about our OLBs.  No other OLB is listed for the Patriots.  I guess they were all injured or subbing in-out.

     

    Guyton and Mayo were average.  Oddly enough, Guyton beat out Mayo.  Somebody draft an ILB.

     

    Leigh Bodden is nicely above average.  Shawn Springs is average.

     

    Brandon Meriweather is hot, #6 in the NFL.  James Sanders is average.

     

    Ghost is #3 in the NFL, thank you.  Chris Hanson is second from the bottom out of 44 punters.  Isn’t that Hanson’s backside sailing over the crossbar?

    I don't like Maryweather.  He makes some nice picks but can't tackle and was bad for team chemistry last year.

    If there is a football rumor, even if started by TP's grandmother, you can bet it will be reported and embellished on the PFT site.
