[QUOTE]In Response to Re: Report: Colts' Mathis wants new contract, Mathis skips OTAs over money : Jeez - are we back to this? I gave my opinion but for you without memory, here you go.RESPONSE: Yet another lie. You previously dodged the question.
I like Brackett. I think you are very wrong to say his is one of the best in the league, but he does what the Colts need him to do.RESPONSE: So...I take it that you are saying that Brackett is overrated, and that the Colts grossly overpaid when resigning him?
The resigning according to Polian is that he is a leader, a great community guy, he does what is needed on the field, and there was no one to back him up.RESPONSE: Do you agree or disagree with Polian?
Polian historically has not paid linebackers and have let a few good ones go.RESPONSE: This is true.
They were all better than Brackett, but the colts had people they could put in their place.RESPONSE: Robert Thorton and Caito June were better than Brackett?
Brackett has also shown to be durable. RESPONSE: True.
Profootballfocus ranks him at the same level as your Guyton - 35th of all inside linebackers.RESPONSE: Do you agree with this alleged rating? Are you implying that Gary Guyton is as good a player? Do you really believe that there are 34 other ILBs better than Brackett?
As for the D, I have hope.RESPONSE: Hope?? Are you implying That Indy's defense succks...and all you can do is hope for the best?
As I do every year, I hope that the interior of the D is stouter than they have been. I expect the pass rush to be good and the secondary to do their job, RESPONSE: So...are you saying that Indy's defense is very good against the pass, but weak against the run?
but it will be up to the offense (as always) to put points on the board forcing the opposing defense to pass. We will not get chances like we had last year in Miami to win games while allowing over 200 yards rushing.RESPONSE: As I have consistently pointed out to you, the regular season is not where Peyton and your Ponies have their problems. The 200 yard game that you referred to above was a regular season Indy come-back win in Miami, early in the 2009 season.
The Colts' problems throughout this decade have incurred during the play-offs, when Peyton, to be kind, simply doesn't perform up to his regular season standards.
