    I was hoping that safety/special teamer, Colt Anderson, would re-sign with the white-friendly Eagles, but their signing of white safety/special teamer, Chris Maragos, appears to have made him expendable. He was signed by the Colts yesterday. From NBC...

    Indy signed Corey Lynch (who seems to sign with a new squad every season) late last season and is currently penciled in as the starter at SS. Behind Lynch is nobody Delano Howell and former Patriot bonehead, Sergio Brown, who was God-awful in New England. Thus, Anderson could easily make the squad.

    Lynch has had a fascinating career. We all remember his most famous moment at Appalachian State, when he blocked a field goal to beat (then powerhouse) Michigan in one of the greatest upsets in NCAA football history…

    Speaking of Lynch, a few years back, I remember a story about how he saved a woman’s life. Here is the amazing story...

    How many NFL Negroes would do something like this? Perhaps Leonard Little? Let's hope Lynch becomes the entrenched starter for many years to come. Pending the results of the draft, the Colts are likely to feature 4-5 white starters in 2014: QB Luck, WR Ryan Whalen, TE Coby Fleener, LT Castanzo, and SS Lynch. Whalen may not be a starter.

    I'd say the Colts could have 5 or 6 starters, at least for the first 4 games.


    Werner will have to play really well in this time to warrant more snaps when Mathis returns. The other OLB is Erik Walden who sucks, but I doubt the Colts would have Werner and Mathis starting as both are pass rushing specialists.

    The probable starters week 1 should be QB Luck, OT Castonzo, OG Mewhort, TE Fleener, OLB Werner and SS Lynch. WR Griff Whalen is buried behind Reggie Wayne, TY Hilton, Hakeem Nicks and possibly LaVon Brazill, Da'Rick Rogers and draft pick Donte Moncrief. I hope Griff can overcome the odds once again this year and beat out some of these overrated negroes.

    2014 Position Battles/Outlook

    The Colts have a few interesting pieces to pay attention to this season starting with Andrew Luck and TE Coby Fleener, who should both solidify themselves as upper-echelon players at their positions. Here are some preseason battles to watch for:

    LG - Joe Reitz vs. Donald Thomas ... Reitz should start over the journeyman Thomas who is recovering from injury.

    C - Thomas Austin vs. Khaled Holmes ... The colts would be better off bringing in a free agent, but if not, I'll be pulling for Austin.

    RG - Jack Mewhort vs. Hugh Thornton ... The rookie Mewhort should be an upgrade over Thornton who was underwhelming in a starting role last season.

    4th WR - Griff Whalen vs. Donte Moncrief vs. DaRick Rogers - Whalen played a big role down the stretch last season, but will have his work cut out for him to even make the team this year with Wayne returning, and Nicks coming over in free agency. I don't really see Whalen making much of an impact, assuming he makes the team.

    OLB - Bjoern Werner vs. Andy Studebaker vs. Erik Walden ... Werner will start the first four games in place of the suspended Mathis. If he performs well, he should slide to the other OLB spot upon Mathis' return. Walden has been below average to laughable as a starter, yet always manages to be in the lineup. Studebaker is a guy who I think could start if given the opportunity; look for him to be in the mix while Mathis is out.

    S - Corey Lynch vs. Delano Howell ... Lynch should easily take the starting FS spot. It was beyond ridiculous that San Diego didn't resign him last season to be the starter after performing so well in 2012. Hopefully Lynch can parlay this opportunity into a long term deal.


    The Colts could still use some help in the interior o-line, at fullback, and with Trent Richardson slated to start, the run game is sure to be a disaster at best.

    That's a great story, about how Corey Lynch saved that woman's life. That's the kind of man I'd want on my team.

    Hopefully he gets a fair chance to start.

    He was cut for a guy who runs a 4.7 for crying out loud.

    He's been starting returner all year and now they cut him? True wtf moment.

    But he's black - so he has upside.

    It's just more factual evidence that the caste system is real.

    From what I read it was the earlier signing of over-the-hill Joshua Cribbs who made Whalen expendable. Tipton was signed as RB depth. This is still shameful because Whalen has way more speed and explosiveness than Cribbs plus is a pretty good slot receiver too.

    Maybe the Colts just think they can resign him whenever they want since it's unlikely any other NFL team will pick him up?
