    Colts are pretty much a RB factory so signing him just makes sense.

    We're bringing purple back.

    lol I was thinking the same thing. Haven't they been one of the worst rushing teams the last couple years?

    But is that because they have been predominantly a passing having Manning at QB? That may overshadow the work and effort put in by the RBs when the offensive is slewed that way. Plus with Manning calling a lot of his own plays at the LOS then that can impact as well.
    Time spent annoying a Packer fan is never time wasted...

    Injuries have played a big part the last couple of years. Keep in mind this guy has been with Indy since 1992. The jury is still out on Brown. But the 3 "starting" RBs since then: Addai, Edge, Faulk. I don't know how many probowls those three have made, but Faulk is 1st ballot HOFer. He may have been the most complete back, ever. Moreover, Peyton wouldn't stand for having an RB in there who could not pass block. Huey would have had a big hand in coaching them up.
