  1. While its possible, it is more likely that we move Haeg/Mewhort/Good over in that situation. Depth charts wont have players listed in multiple positions when you have 90 man rosters and have to fit them all on it somehow.
  2. He has the skills to be a decent starter in the league, so long as he has the right offensive gameplan around him. Unfortunately for him, the style of offense he flourishes under isnt what most teams are looking for anymore. Hes not a great pocket passer, which means teams dont even want to use him as a backup because they dont want to have to redo their entire playbook should the starter go down. Do his protests maybe contribute to it? Im sure they do to an extent. But at the same time, we dont see anyone pushing and shoving to sign RG3, a player with a similar skillset to Kaep. I think it mostly comes down to schemes. NFL coaches are shying away from designed qb runs/read options. Even highly successful qbs like Cam Newton and Russell Wilson are being coached to stop running as much and become better pocket passers. Those players have proven that they can make strides towards doing that. I dont think coaches/GMs are convinced Kaep (or RG3 for that matter) can make those strides.
  3. That is correct, at least for the cowboys and cardinals. They have a few more but also have another game to plan for (not that they gameplan much for preseason games).
  4. Wasnt you saying it, but the part of the story you pasted into the topic.
  5. As Adobe said, It is based off of time before preseason games begin for each team. That is why camp started on the 29th for us, as well as the Seahawks, Chargers and Lions. We are the 4 teams that play the Sunday games for week 1 preseason. Teams that play the Saturday games (Titans, Jets, Raiders, Rams) started camp a day before us, with the exceptions being the Cowboys and Cardinals, as they play the HOF game and started earlier than any other teams. Teams that play Friday are 2 days ahead of us, Thursday teams are 3 days ahead and the 2 teams that play Wednesday are 4 days ahead of us. Basically we all get the same # of practices this way. If they didnt have this rule, we could have more practices than most other teams, giving us an unfair advantage.
  6. My guess is that our starters are Sheard and Simon on the outside (with Ayers/Basham mixing in for passing downs). Spence and Bostic seem to be leading the pack on the inside, but I wouldn't be surprised to see Morrison, Edwin and Walker all see time as well.
  7. Well the chances of me having kids are relatively low, but if I do have children and they want to play, then I would let them. No question. I realize that there is a risk of injury. I played for years, and 10 years after walking away from the sport due to injury, I still walk with a bit of a limp. That being said, I have been the worst case scenario in my family for 3 generations. My grandfather and his 5 brothers played, my dad and his 4 brothers played, me and my 2 brothers played, and 9 of my cousins did as well. Sure there is a chance at injury (I know all too well), but the memories I have from playing, and the friends I made far outweigh the pain. If my theoretical child wants to take that risk, then I would let him. Better that than hockey, which not only has similar injury risks, but has the added "fun" of 6am practices that I would have to take them to .
  8. I was on the Lamp bandwagon simply because I never believed a player like hooker would ever fall into our lap!
  9. To be fair, Gillisee did get 5.7 YPC on 100 carries (leading the NFL in YPC), and this on a team with no discernible passing game, against teams routinely stacking the box against him/McCoy. If that isnt talented, I dont know what is. Yes the offense goes through Brady, but that system seems to get the best out of every player they bring in. If they can get MORE out of Gillisee than he has already shown, he will be a beast. If he can average even 5ypc (which is considerably lower than his 5.7 average last yr) with the amount of carries Blount got last year (299), he would be just short of 1500 rush yds. With Brady taking the pressure off of him, the sky is the limit. But the rest of them are, like you said, products of the system. I would even go so far as to include White as one of the system players, as I dont see him as an all around good player that could succeed on any team. Hes a good west coast 3rd down RB. He's never going to be a workhorse back. Hes another interchangeable tool in the Patriots toolbox, much like Shane Vereen before him. The Pats do a tremendous job of getting a bunch of different players who do one thing really well, and then they rotate players in to fit the gameplan they need for that specific week/quarter/drive. They play to a players strengths and never really ask them to do something out of their comfort zones. Its very frustrating as a Colts fan to watch this, as we seem to constantly try to fit square pegs in round holes when it comes to our players.
  10. Hence why it may be tough for him to instruct bigger guys, as the OP stated.
  11. I wouldnt count out Turbin as our 3rd down guy. His pass blocking skills are far better than Fergusons, and I do not expect a rookie RB (who is reportedly a bad pass blocker) to be a better blocker either. With Allen gone, I can see us keeping our RB in to block even more in passing situations, as Luck seems to trust Doyle quite a bit as his dump off guy and we probably wont stick him (or Swoope) with blocking assignments. If this is the case, then Turbin could be the most used RB on 3rd downs (although not exclusively).
  12. Why dont we call up Vince Young while we are at it??
  13. On this forum, that is literally impossible. It could be the greatest piece of art ever created and wed still be divided.
  14. Given the talent they have at RB already, I have no problem with them signing Blount for another 1 yr deal. Its not like they are going to keep 5 rbs on the roster. One of Burkhead, Lewis, Gillisie or White will hit the market, costing them almost as much talent as they get back by signing Blount. Blount has flamed out with multiple teams and only seems to be successful with the Pats. Add in the fact that he has a terrible attitude and is a locker room cancer, it makes perfect sense why no one wants to touch him.
