    Seeing as there is no 2011 thread, I thought I would start one..


    From what I saw, this is their White UDFA signings:

    (LB) Chris Colasanti
    (TE) Mike McNeill
    (C/G) Jake Kirkpatrick
    (QB) Mike Hartline


    --In other news, Clint Session left and is on Jacksonville now; They also let go of (TEs) Tom Santi and Gijon Robinson.

    With Charlie Johnson leaving for the Vikings, I believe there is a decent chance of an all-white Colts offensive line starting, unless Ijalana gets to start right away, which he might as he was a second round pick , to go with the Pats, and maybe the Packers as all white starting lines, though the Packers have their rookie sumo who will be starting at some point.

    What are they doing picking up stiffs like Jamaal Anderson and Tommie Harris?

    The Colts recently signed former Oakland / Carolina DE, Tyler Brayton. This move may be the Colts’ solution to drafting (yet another) 1[SUP]st[/SUP] round black bum in the form of TCU DE Jerry Hughes (31[SUP]st[/SUP] overall in 2010). Despite receiving 7-million in guaranteed money, Hughes was god-awful in limited action last season. With his remarkable season stat-line of six tackles and zero sacks, it’s no wonder white athletes can’t possibly compete at the NFL level. Also, in accordance with the characteristic grace exhibited by most pampered black millionaires, Hughes was arrested during the lockout for “public intoxication.â€￾

    Another coddled little black boy pens his name in the mile-long rolodex of NFL Afro-Busts.

    Yet another in an endless parade of black first round busts. Donald Brown was a first round pick in 2009; last year's first round pick, DE Jerry Hughes, wasn't even active for the opener against Houston:

    Colts coach Jim Caldwell confirmed Wednesday that Donald Brown is without a role on offense due to "a production issue." It's about as strong an acknowledgement that a first-round pick was a bust as you'll get from a head coach. NFL.com's Week 1 gamebook shows that Brown was active for the Colts' opener, but he didn't receive a touch or play a single offensive snap. He'll be passed by undrafted rookie Darren Evans in short order.

    And on the epidemic of black injured players front, Pat Angerer will move over to MLB (hopefully permanently) and be about the only Colts defender able to tackle Peyton Hillis on Sunday.

    Colts coach Jim Caldwell has ruled out MLB Gary Brackett (shoulder) and LB Ernie Sims (knee) for Week 2. The Colts haven't revealed the nature of Brackett's injury, but it's another unneeded blow to an Indianapolis run defense that has no prayer. Look for Pat Angerer to move from the strong side to middle linebacker, where he'll start against the Browns. WLB Kavell Conner is expected to play Sunday, but is battling a bum left foot. Philip Wheeler figures to start at Sam. Peyton Hillis will be the best matchup-play running back in the NFL this week.

    Colts sign yet another white man to its defense, Nate Triplett, bringing their total to three. And, they sign Caleb Campbell to the practice squad.

    Colts signed LB A.J. Edds off the Patriots' practice squad.

    Edds was drafted to play inside in the Dolphins' 3-4 defense, but projects as a strong-side backer in a 4-3 scheme like Indianapolis'. A fourth-round pick in 2010, Edds will try to earn playing time by working on special teams.

    i guess Pat Angerer must have shown them the way! all the best to AJ

    EDIT: Brackett went on the IR; so it's a gain for us, roster breakdown-wise.

    Classic..

    And, huge reach -- Ben Ijalana -- tears his ACL.. http://www.cbssports.com/nfl/players/playerpage/1683958/ben-ijalana


    As for the Colts' d-line, I don't understand what they've "set-up".. they put lighter guys at DE in Mathis/Freeney, and, other than their drafting of sumo-loser, Fili Moala (who missed the Tampa game due to injury), they have guys like Eric Foster/Drake Nevis at DT. They aren't bigger than the White man, and their interior would need bigger men to compensate for their small DEs that mostly rush the passer.. 6-4 310 would be good size for one of their DTs, and White men can be very strong and active linemen at that size.

    Coming out of LSU in this past Draft, I felt that Drake Nevis was grossly-overrated, and that could be proven true shortly.

    Surfing around the World Wide Web it appears the Indianapolis media as well as a growing number of DWF's are ready to move on from Radio as head coach. It would appear they're either realizing what most of us have or are just vocalising it finally, Caldwell is an inept bum that was only hired by honorary Black Panther Tony Dungy because he is a "brutha."

    Today seems to be "sign a white linebacker" day in the NFL, as Colts sign Scott Lutrus. In the last day we have Mohamed going to Broncos, Lutrus, Blackburn to Giants and Jacobs to Browns. Unfortunately Fujita on Cleveland and Vobora on Seattle went on IR.

    I read earlier (untrusted source) that Caldwell has been unofficially fired and will be replaced for next season.

    So, in this instance, don't you think that the "Rooney Rule" shouldn't apply? After all, the entire reason for it becomes irrelevant when you currently have a minority coach. I have to believe the NFL would be guilty of violating EEO laws if they tried to enforce this stupid rule in such a situation. (Not that it isn't already a crime of racial discrimination.)

    Peyton Manning was more the head coach than the blank-faced Caldwell.

    Report: 0-16 season will spend end for Colts' Caldwell

    December 14 - SportsDirect Inc.

    A winless season will spend the end of the road for Indianapolis Colts coach Jim Caldwell.
    NFL.com, citing sources close to the situation, reported that Caldwell will "unequivocally" be fired if the Colts finish the season 0-16.

    Indianapolis is 0-13 with games remaining against Tennessee, Houston and Jacksonville.
    The Colts have unraveled this season without four-time NFL MVP Peyton Manning, who has missed the entire season following multiple neck surgeries.

    Kerry Collins, signed just before the season, went on season-ending injured reserve after suffering a concussion.

    Caldwell is in his third season as coach of the Colts. He reached the Super Bowl after the 2009 season but lost to the New Orleans Saints. Last year, the Colts lost at home to the New York Jets in the wild card round.

    Semi-sentient head coach Jim Caldwell was fired today. That makes three black head coaches fired this off-season, but it shouldn't cause too much of a stir given that in Oakland a black GM was hired, who will probably hire a black head coach to replace Hue Jackson. Also, Romeo Crennell was retained in KC (a move which will keep that team mediocre at best in coming seasons). Hopefully Indy will now hire their first White head coach since before Tony Dungy (Jim Moron Sr.).

    Would also be nice to see Spagnuolo become the defensive coordinator. He was victimized in St. Louis by an unbelievable amount of injuries, especially to WRs, and the crappy mostly sumo o-line that team has insisted on having since Mike Martz left, but the Rams' defense was among the Whitest in the league over the past 25 years, ranking with the Falcons about a decade ago, the Bills a few years ago, the Browns last year, and the Titans very briefly about six years ago -- all with five White starters and occasionally a "daring" White majority on the field at the same time.

    The Colts interviewed ex-Rams coach Steve Spagnuolo for their defensive coordinator position on Monday. The timing is odd considering Spags interviewed with now-fired coach Jim Caldwell, among others, in Indy. If the Colts are serious about landing Spagnuolo, they join the Eagles and Saints in vying for his services, with the Falcons now out of the mix.

    Some potential good news for Austin Collie. As Don mentioned in the Peyton Manning thread, Reggie Wayne resigned for 3 years. However, also tonight hands of stone Pierre Garcon signed a baffling 5 year deal with the Blackskins for 42.5 mil with 20.5 guaranteed. Ughh, does Washington ever make a good signing? LOL. Now they can have "flashy" dropped passes from their "flashy" afrolete QB. Washington is a mess and a prime example of an awful, fully negro NFL squad.

    As for Collie, I love Garcon leaving and Wayne resigning. Garcon is young and was long term threat to Collie's development. Wayne is on the downside of his career but still probably commands the top corner from opposing defenses. Now Collie can thrive as a starter with Andrew Luck (hopefully) and not have to deal with the pressure of being the #1 receiver and the "go to guy". Barring a big free agent signing or a highly drafted WR, I like Collie's prospects for next season.
