    Default Croyle and the rest of this season?


    0 Not allowed!
    This is a harsh opinion, but I'm throwing it out there.

    So when do we start Croyle? The last game of the season? Unless they draft offensive linemen and acquire some talent off the market(which they won't) the O will be just as terrible next year as it is this year. So do it now. Yes, it will be tough. It will also show what he's made of in toughness and mentality.

    They knew they had issues going back to last year and even the pre-season. Did they bring in any starting free agents? Nope. Did they draft any potential starting O-line players? Nope.

    Herm and Peterson keep telling us that the team needs to be younger but keep bringing in old talent. ie Law, Surtain, Turley, etc. Instead they invested a boat load of money into an ineffective RB in Larry Johnson who didn't even have the decency to honor his contract. That guy is another T.O. and Moss and infects the locker room like a virus. They should have kept Bennett and sent his sorry a$$ packing when he pulled that. Call Vermeil what you want, but he brought in good decent players you liked and they performed for him. He didn't like LJ and I guess we're starting to see why.

    Personally, the rest of this season is a wash. Yeah, we might win the West, but it sure isn't anything to brag about like past years. That will be it, because we can't even come close to competing in the playoffs. Start Croyle, maybe rotate some developing O line players and let's give the "QB of the future" some experience and serious playing time.

    Huard will not win us a Superbowl, the O line will not win us a Superbowl and a strong defense alone will not win us a Superbowl. I want a Bowl appearance and I really could care less about winning the AFC West. I think we sell ourselves short and are settling for less if all we really care about is the AFC West. We as fans need to demand more.

    I'm so disappointed this year. I knew we would struggle, but not to this extent. There are so many problems that this team needs to address. All the way from ageing corners, ageing QB and a failure of an effective O line. They need to really, really shake something up now! You also never hear if Huard has even taken a leadership role in this team.

    Vermeil brought in Surtain.

    Pollard and Page are not busts, HERM got lucky with young talent (and so did WE!), but apparently Law is the product of an outdated defensive scheme.

    Herm didn't get Law, CP did.

    Herm is a waste. They should have promoted Al Saunders. Being that Herm and Peterson are best buddies, I don't suspect there will be any changes in the near future.

    I know that Herm, like myself, is concened about the idea of getting croyle hurt by sticking him behind this O-line unit.

    I also think that Huard has done well with the hand that he has been dealt.

    But, at some point, if the offense doesn't find a way to improve, he will have to succumb to the outcry of the fans, and play Brodie Croyle.

    Maybe Croyle can create wine from this water. But I will hope for his healthy finish to the season, when it does come to that, over all else.

    Only team insiders can fromulate a real opinion on rather or not he is ready to become the starter of this team. And appearently, they have thus far decided that he isn't ready yet. I hope he is closer than what I think, because otherwise we could stunt his growth as a quarterback, by rushing him in too quickly.

    I hope any QB survives the season behind this pathetic O-line. I think Croyle can at least escape danger better than Huard can. Plus, he can throw on the run better than Huard.

    Doesn't matter though. If we don't bring in Croyle this week, we won't see him for 2 more weeks. There is no way Herm will let Croyle's first start be in Indy.

    FYP!

    Casey Printers was almost able to do it.

    That was the best our O looked in the last two years.

    Another big mistake by HERM!

    Really? hmm...the guy has been a head coach in this league for less than a decade and hasn't been with one team long enough to build his program. No body knows what Herm could do with a long tenure at one team.

    I'd rather have Herm, a young defensive minded coach who's potential hasn't been realized than to go thru another coaching change for some guy like Bill Cower, who was with the Steelers for 2 decades and took them to only 2 Super Bowls and only one SB win.

    By the way...that SB win was AFTER they took a QB in the first round.

    But, impatient fans who don't appreciate going to the playoffs since '06, a rebuilt, young, potential laden defense call for Damon Huard to start at the beginning of the season and call for the coach's head.

    By the way, no one knows what kind of head coach Saunders is going to be either. That would've taken patience too.

    But, what are you gonna do?

    That still shocks me. Could only have been his fumbling problem though.
