donald brown and robert hudges placed on IR

Recommended Posts

Yikes! I think he did a decent job this season coming off the bench in spot duty. Lets hope Vick Ballard can hold up the rest of the season.

And he's replaced by Deji Karim and Mwelde Moore. Arggghhhh! Talk about signing two players who don't equal 1 of Donald Brown. I also see that we've signed Dave Megetts son Davin Megett to the practice squad and released Alvester Alexander for the 100th time. It appears Megett was originally signed as an UFA this season by the Texans. I wonder are we trying to squeeze information out of him about their offense and their calls.

I hate all this bad running back news!

Losing Brown hurts. Moore used to be good in blitz pickup and was a good receiver. Karim was ok in preseason and had some moments vs Jacksonville. This is about as good as the Colts could do but Brown was a big play threat and played his best football at times this year.

They have to be stop gap at best. I hope Carter is okay, he and Ballard are going to be the main guys on Sunday.

just depth most likely. moore could be the 3rd down back though.

He was totally unimpressive both as a blocker and runner on his first stint. The hope is that he should know the plays well enough to not get Luck killed.

I see they signed Davin Meggett to the PS. He may have the most potential out of the new guys. Darn, I had a lot of hope for Hughes.

i doubt he sees much playing time. i think ballard has impressed enough to not need a rotation at RB.

I have to think that we are one of the most injuried, if not THE most injured team in the NFL. It seems every two weeks we are putting another key player on IR.

My guess is yes. Brown was not a Grigson guy. Neither was Carter. Vick Ballard is. I'd be surprised to see either Brown or Carter back next year. Ballard has shown enough that he can be a lead back in the NFL. If Grigson can improve the line, Ballard might even be a top tier back.

DB is better than I initially gave him credit for. I think he get's his last season with the Colts, although I wouldn't be upset or surprised if he's let go. I do have to say if this is so long, then I salute him for providing us with the one of the most memorable Peyton moments..ever!

All true but getting rid of Carter and Brown sounds extreme, Why remove two players who have at least year left on there deal when neither are the problem only to have 2 unecessary holes to fill. I think both will be back next year and guys like Moore and Karim will be cut again, Both were brought in for depth

I disagree on Mewelde Moore. He had one bad game with the Colts this year with a fumble and a drop. He was called for holding twice on plays that McGlynn and Justice whiffed on blocks.....that Luck would have been killed spot on.

He is a veteran and has always been considered a reliable 3rd down back and pass blocker. He can also handle kickoffs when needed. Ballard, Carter, Karim, and Moore are fine. Not sure where the anti-Moore stuff is coming from.....why we EVER signed Alexander to the PS to begin with was a waste of time.

Like Donald Brown or not, he will be missed. Here is to hoping Ballard and Carter can hold up, and hold onto the ball!! GO Colts and good luck to DB in his recovery :colts: :colts: :colts: ...as well as Hughes. :coltslogo: :coltslogo: :coltslogo:

I don't know, he missed a lot of time.

No way does Brown get cut in the offseason. He is our fastest back, he can juke guys out of their shoes, and his blocking is top notch. Re-signing him the following offseason is a different story, but he will be on the roster next year.

    • I get what you're driving at BLS. I just remember the nightmare known as Curtis Painter in 2011. Translation: Quality backups aren't that easy to find & there's no such thing as an elite 2nd stringer field general. They don't really exist meaning all backup QBs have flaws.    In layman's terms, when the face of your franchise goes down; you're basically screwed that calendar yr anyway because veterans off the street are injury prone with age & recovery issues & anybody worthy of your attention is locked down financially on other team rosters for the short term future. 
    • You can say that again WM. It's like some people think Jacoby will be great just because he was in the same room Brady was studying film a few times.    Look, I respect the hades out of Brady & his SB consistency. I also was amazed at how quickly Jacoby used wrist band numbers to execute our offense in short order. It just bothers me when players & coordinators under BB's coaching tree get all these job interview opportunities  & then when they leave Foxboro their clout fades too.    If anybody breaks this trend of leaving the Boston net & succeeding, Josh McDaniels will be the one to shatter this stigma IMO. [Yes, I think Josh will flourish in his 2nd HC gig too once that preferred vacancy becomes available. This happens a lot with your 2nd shot at the helm running a NFL program.]
    •   The owner of the company says 30 of 32 NFL teams use his service.       I'm sorry he didn't bring out the paper work to show it to you.     But typically,  unless there is reason to believe he's lying,  the man,  in this case,  Cris Collinsworth, gets the benefit of the doubt.   As opposed to you,   who doesn't like the service,  and just denies,  denies,  and denies.....   Oh,  and as for Chip Kelly......     Rich Dudes have lots of ways of making money.    They typically don't chose to make it by buying part of a company that, in the past,  they have openly said negative things about.      Goes to credibility.      They can invest their money elsewhere.   Kelly bought in because he likes what he sees.  
    •   None of those people talk in the 3rd person seriously.   If any of those three talk in the third perosn,   they are mocking themselves and others who do.   And having worked with on-air people who have huge talents,  I think I can say confidently that none of these three guys has an ego the way the current occupent of the White House does.     Not even close.     That man is in a league of his own.   Apologies for the political talk.    
    •     So far,  I confess I don't think of RG3 when I watch Brissett.      I think he's much more of a pocket passer than RG3 ever was.    I saw RG3 as an athlete who could play QB.      I see Brissett as a QB who has some athleticism.   Brissett is taller,  bigger,  heavier.     Not nearly the athlete but much more a physical presense.   6'4" 235 vs. 6'2" and 220.     I think Brissett is going through the normal young QB growth that most every young QB goes through.     I'd expect over time he makes fewer and fewer mistakes.       As for what we'd get for Brissett in a trade....    I don't know if you spend any time in the chat room during a game,  but this past Monday,  I spent some time there,  and when Brissett was good (1st half)  the Colts fans there had us gettng at least a 1st round draft pick for him,  and possibly even more!     I think a Day 2 pick is not far off,   he was taken in the 3rd round and demonstrated a good level of competence in a short amount of time.      I suppose it's possible he'd get only a 4,    but I don't see Brissett getting traded for a 5.     I think Ballard would much rather keep him than trade him for that.
