Good luck Hayworth Hicks...

16 posts in this topic

Will there be a Mike Tepper sighting? :) He knows the plays...can play guard and tackle...McGlynn can play center if Shipley gets dinged........URRGH!

Should replace OL with OL IMO.....I did not look, but I believe he is the only OL on there.

With Satele hurting and Link coming off of a concussion, some moves need to be made. Sowell held his own last week with Justice down....I wonder why Hicks might not have been moved up already.

Very interesting, and thanks for sharing.

So is it possible that they will be moving someone from the active roster to the PS to activate Justin Anderson, or Josh Chapman? The FO might not have activated Hicks to the AR because Anderson is ready to start. Any thoughts?

He was a good prospect. I wish they had played him ahead of Olson. He would have blocked at a higher level.

You are right....Grigs kept him for a reason....with injuries, it would have been nice to give him a shot!!

chapman must be activated by the 13th or he goes on ir

Chapman is on Injury IR. Activating him will likely take place on the active roster, not the PS. This doesn't help us with that.

A player cant be moved from the active roster to ps. The player on roster would have to be cut and clear waivers. Then they could be signed to the ps.

I thought you liked Hicks. Why would it be dumb for the Jets to take him from our PS?

To let him sit on our PS while we are hanging onto someone like a Tony Hills on the active roster after he stunk up the joint more then once while he was in games, good move by the Jets in the long run, Hicks is not well known or even likely make any Pro Bowls ever but he would likely been better then any Guard we have been marching out there with in terms of run blocking (and in Seth Olsens case I feel comfortable saying Hicks would have been a better pass blocker to) (yes for those Front office and Coaches know best crowd I know the coaches know a heck of alot more then I do). Congrats to Hicks, He could even see time or start (not likely) if Brandon Moore is a no go this week

I think Grigson has done one :censored: of a job, actually. From the draft, to making quality trades, to signing free agents as we need them, he's been stellar so far.

    •   So, you think I made some good choices? 2006CBE asked who I wanted for Harvey -- Rizzo and Bryant were not available. I think Contreras is the best. I know you guys like Schwarber but something about his weight bothers me. If Zobrist was under 28, I might have wanted him. If you still had Fowler, that is a guy I might want.   Given what you have, Contreras would be best for us. It won't haopen though. 
    • Right now, maybe half of the top 15 (or so) interior defensive lineman are 6'1 or less and about 300 lbs or less and arm lenght of around 32 inches (Donald, Atkins, Casey, Daniels, Jarrett/Kyle Williams). Only Donald was a day one 1 pick or drafted in the first two rounds. Casey went in the 3rd round. No one else was picked in the top 100. I don't think there is an other position were so many top players share similar trait and most of them were picked late in the draft.   Are teams that afraid of having a small team that they automatically give worse grade for smaller defensive lineman? If Aaron Donald, for example, had Geno Atkins besides him instead of Michael Brockers, would that line be as effective as one would expect just from the player talent level upgrade from Brockers to Atkins or even worse? I mean, Brockers is a good player but Atkins is on another level. And individually these players are great but would they work as well together on the same line? Not sure if it's as much about the size itself as these players can use it to their advantage in quickness and leverage but maybe two dlineman with short arms would create some issues?   Just wondering why so many of them have fallen late in the draft. I understand that some teams want bigger, physical players (like BB, Parcells etc) but what about those teams that had already gotten steals later in the draft with small interior lineman would jump at the chance to select a player who had great tape and showed similar traits as their best defensive player. Like Grady Jarrett in 2015. Both the Bengals and Titans drafted a dlinemen in the 4th, Jarrett went with first pick in the 5th round Bengals pick was actually two picks before Jarrett was taken.   Though the Bengals did take Billings last year and he might be next to Atkins but he was another 4th round pick. And Titans did draft Mike Martin to be their nose tackle a year after taking Casey but he didn't pan out. And I maybe haven't looked at closely enough at bust/success rate for smaller defensive lineman so these guys could be sort of outliers and teams just missed on these guys for other reasons.    
    • Also for retrospect on this list: Dan Marino--Mark Clayton & Jim Kelly--Andre Reed were snubbed.  Can you think of others that should be on here in place of someone else?
    • http://newarena.com/nfl/ranked-the-top-24-qb-wr-duos-of-all-time/7/?amxt=fbdesktop2   11. Peyton Manning/Reggie Wayne: Indianapolis Colts   In the post Marvin Harrison era, Wayne took the torch as being Manning’s go-to target. During his 14-year career with the Colts, Wayne had eight seasons with at least 1,000 yards receiving. He also managed to haul in 82 touchdowns during this time period. Manning’s resume has been chronicled ad nauseam. He is the all-time leader in passing yards (71,940), and is consistently mentioned as one of the best to ever throw a football in the history of the sport.   2. Peyton Manning/Marvin Harrison: Indianapolis Colts   The respective skill-sets of Manning and Harrison worked perfectly with one another. Manning’s unbelievable timing on throws was predicated greatly by Harrison’s ability to separate in coverage. One of the best technical receivers in league history, Harrison’s route-running capabilities led him to become an 8-time Pro Bowler and a 3-time First-team All-Pro. He also led the league in receiving yards twice with Manning under center. 114 of Manning’s 539 touchdowns throws went to Harrison. This statistic is simply mind-boggling — and further validates a top-three standing.   ( Jerry Rice also got mentioned 2 times.  #3 with Steve Young, and #1 with Joe Montana.)

    •   Sorry to keep harping on the Irish thing, but did you know the horseshoe has seven points on it?  (The Colts horseshoe, anyway.  Actual shoes for horses depend on the farrier).   Seven is considered a lucky number...  Lucky.  Luck.  I'm telling you, you picked the right team to root for.   7    
    •   Don't hold Boston against the Irish.  It's not our fault.    We love our green, which makes Indiana a tearmann.   I love it that you chose to root for an underdog instead of the Pats.  I don't think it's coincidence that you became a fan around the time Luck got drafted to the Colts.  That's providence.     Horseshoe?  Luck?  Four-leaf clover?  Come on.  Hoosier Hospitality has roots in Irish fun-lovery.  If you're lucky enough to be Irish, you're lucky enough!  May the luck of the Irish be with you!
