    Hacksaw on XX 1090 broke the story and I didnt beleive him due to the fact he talks out his a** at times, until I seen this.

    5. Colts sign Marcus McNeill to offer sheet.

    Colts president Bill Polian thinks his team's offensive line was outplayed during Super Bowl 44. Since then, Polian has been trying to round up larger offensive linemen.

    As left tackles go, they don't get much bigger than Marcus McNeill of the Chargers. Listed at 6-7 and 337 pounds, the five-year veteran carries the highest possible restricted free agency tender, requiring a first-round and third-round pick as compensation.

    But the Colts draft in nearly the lowest position in the first round, 31st out of 32 teams. So it's a relatively small price to pay for a proven tackle who would help keep Peyton Manning in one piece during the final third or so of his career.

    That means that the Chargers can match the offer and wrap up Big Mac for a number of years. :abq2::abq1:

    This is why we need a swing tackle to play left and right tackle. I had said that if McNeill goes down, we are fuc't. Rivers can also kiss his good knee ligaments adios.

    Remember Leander Jordan anyone ?

    We do not have a back up left tackle and not many fans seem to give a rats *** here or on other boards. Oh well.

    You have been warned. :icon_twisted:

    People actually believe Hacksaw? That is the same guy that said the Chargers were looking at Willie Parker and Brian Westbrook.

    The guy is a complete joke, and just makes up stories to get attention

    The same thing can be said about 31 other teams. We have more immediate needs early in the draft than a guy who can be a good backup at LT

    the obvious question is this

    Are the Colts seriously considering acquiring Marcus McNeil or is this one of those cases where the reporter just notes moves that should be made?

    If its the former, then we have a problem
    If its the latter, go back to sleep

    Really ?

    Not one team has a back up left tackle who is worthy ?

    I would like to see us draft a RT who can start and play LT if needed.

    Otherwise, we are just wasting another year.

    Trenches wins championships.

    I would love to see us do the same thing, but AJ was very clear that he was very happy with our current line, so I doubt any pick he makes will be anything more than a late round backup.

    I do believe RT is and has been a huge need, which is why we should have drafted Oher last year. AJ has an issue with drafting for future needs rather than for immediate (a position that needs to be filled this or next year, not 2-3 years down the road) needs in the 1st round or 2. OLB was a future need, OT was an immediate need. Even RB, NT, and SS were more immediate needs than OLB

    Now if we are in a position where we don't have immediate needs, filling future needs would be great. But the last couple years, we have had immediate needs that have not been filled. We knew NT and RB would be needs that needed to be filled, and neither were addressed

    This should never be a problem is my point.

    If Rivers goes down, I am confident that Volek can step in and move the chains and on down the line of players but not at LEFT TACKLE. I get the same sick feeling wondering what would happen if Jamal went down and we saw our run defense go completely to ****.

    The Ski-bros did a good job. Mooch did well as a back up to Hardwick but the dude is not a starter. I think I remember one penalty on Mooch last year. Not bad.

    We need another 6'7" Marcus McNeill clone at RT who can play LT. Dombroski can play RT in a pinch if McNeill goes down and now we are set. Except for replacing Hardwick. Then we are set.

    If Trumpy had his way the team would have 26 offensive linemen, 26 defensive linemen, and the QB.

    Only because the QB is Rivers.

    After Rivers retires he'd sign another lineman.

    I'd be surprised if the Colts went after McNeil. Polian has a similar philosophy to AJ. Do you think AJ would give up a 1st and 3rd to sign someone?

    I'd be surprised if Polian signed him even if it didn't require a 1st and 3rd.

    It is just another one of Hacksaws madeup stories to get people spun up and calling his show. He is a complete joke that knows less about the Chargers than most of the people on this board
