Playoffs are out this year; and even if they somehow backed in it would just be another first round loss and would affect their draft position. So, why not see which players on the current roster are worth keeping for next year? Or, could some of them be better playing a different position? Give Martin a few games at LT, since Long is no longer an asset. Try Smith at Safety. Start Matthews for a bit at WR and see what he can do. Yes, this is basically writing off this season, but knowing exactly which holes need to be filled (and in what order of need) seems to be a good step toward building for the future. If, for example, Smith does well at Safety, or Martin is a good LT, then waiting until next training camp to find this out means that you'll fill one hole but create another. Presuming that Long is not on the team next year, wouldn't it be better to know BEFORE the draft that Martin can be the new LT, so now you can look for a RT? Indy sacrificed an entire season to get their new QB (sorry, but there's no way that the Colts were that bad minus Peyton). Just because you're focusing on talent evaluation doesn't mean that you don't try to win.
But, if you still feel that this team can be successful this year and make the post-season, then ignore this thread.
