Since peyton came into the leagure IND. has drafted an offenseive player in the firat round I believe 70% of the time. They contsanly surround him with talent to make him better. Give him Spiller OT in 1st. Shipley in 3rd. let him have play makers and see what happens. I guartantee if they give him spiller and a OT in the 1st he will throw 27+TD'S for the season. Esp. with Davis and Crabtree. Will ore time in the pocket and Gore getting the tough yards and a home run threat(Spiller)...thoughts?
Man it doesn't matter who we bring in to help alex smith he still wont throw for 20+ touchdowns! He is a 16-to 18 touchdowns quaterback. We can not change his spots not matter what we try to do to make him what he obviously is not! A pro-bowl quaterback!
He threw 18 touchdowns in 10.5 games. I am fairly confident he would throw at least 3 TDs in the span of 5 games. Just for fun, 18/10.5 = 1.71, 1.71 x 16 = 27.36
If he keeps up what he was doing last year, that's 27 TDs in 16 full games. If we upgrade the O-Line, he could only get better. Imagine if we drafted Bryant and Spiller
(I don't like Spiller as a draft pick, but just saying)
