This is the year some team should do "the Ditka Trade." Give it all away. Bundle all your picks -- for a running back. For Reggie Bush.

...Bush would do more than replace James, whom the Colts lost in free agency. Bush is the kind of dynamic presence that would refresh the entire team. The Colts face the mental challenge of bouncing back from the deflation of 2005, when they started 13-0 and looked like the best team in the NFL but ended up with yet another playoff disappointment. How hard will it be for the Colts to slog through the regular season with essentially the same roster, feeling like no matter how many games they win, they will have not accomplished anything?

Getting Bush would be like pressing the reset button. Everything changes. The most dangerous offensive player in the draft joins the most effective offense in the NFL. How hard would opposing defenses be gripping if they had to worry about Peyton Manning and Marvin Harrison and Reggie Wayne and Reggie Bush all on the same play? How wide open would Dallas Clark be? I can already see Brandon Stokley streaking uncovered across the middle.

No way we trade down to the 30th pick, even if they offered their whole draft this year & next year.

Hmmm... play vs VY AND RB twice a year?

No thanks...

They let Edge go because of financial pressure. RB at #1 would kill their cap.

Besides lets not go giving the most potent offense in the league another weapon especially when we play them twice a year.

Hey, all that matters is that they trade down, because, like, well, it's trading down.

It reads better this way.

Getting Bush would be like pressing the reset button. Everything changes. The most dangerous offensive player in the draft joins the most effective offense in the NFL. How hard would opposing defenses be griping if they had to worry about David Carr and Andre Johnson and Eric Moulds and Reggie Bush all on the same play? How wide open would Jerome Mathis be? I can already see Domanick Davis streaking uncovered across the middle. http://www.rocketpillow.com/bs/img/bfelix.gif

Problem is, a lot of Texan fans can't read.

It seems that some Texans fans can't quote properly, either.

Colts should pull a Ditka and trade it all for Reggie

I don't know if I want to trade down all the way until 30. I don't think it's worth giving away our #1 for the 30, 62, and all the rest of their picks. Maybe if they throw in a player.

No way do the Texans trade with the Colts especially giving them Reggie Bush.

Trading down from #1 to #30 would be beyond terrible, unless they want to put Freeney on the table and that won't happen.

The problem for the Colts is they have the 30th pick. All their picks together might not be enough to entice Houston to give up the top spot. The Colts might have to throw in a player or two, or perhaps a couple of 2007 picks. They should do it. This is what the team needs. This is how the Colts get to the Super Bowl. Do the Ditka Trade. This is an outrageous deal people will remember the good way.



Again unless that "player or two" involves Freeney, it won't happen. I guess this is just an idea he'd like to see happen, he doesn't care if it shafts the Texans so long as Indy gets Bush whom it "needs" more than Houston. The Texans are an afterthought to this maroon.

Actually, Robert Mathis would be cheaper & just as effective. How about their entire draft this year, their 1st & 2nd round picks next year, Robert Mathis, & Bob Sanders? Yeah, I think I'd consider it, if they made that offer. :)

Geezzz, did they hire Ditka as GM or something? I doubt even he would do that deal.
