  1. As a 4th rd pick, I'm was on board with the Colts drafting him at that point with the idea they might be able to develop his talent to match his cannon arm. Obviously he is not progressing as they expected. Curious if he clears waivers and if so if Colts sign him to practice squad. Hundley is a bad backup QB and Ehlinger has the intangibles but probably never more than NFL backup.
  2. A Not sure that I expect them to due to how badly we have played, but this is the week. 2 starting OL are out, rookie QB on the road who only had 1 good game in his career, & our defense getting crushed by media and fans.
  3. The week before Bills limited Texans to 109 total yards (8 yards in the 1st half) and only 6 first downs....if Colts defense doesn't dominate this week, we have some major issues.
  4. He has struggled this year, but we are hurting at CB. He is a former starting CB with the speed and length we typically covet. Wouldn't be surprised to see Ballard put in a claim.
  5. CB - JC Jackson - I'm sure Pats will try to keep him as his emergence allowed them to trade Gilmore TE - I would rather go with high upside guys that are not utilized like David Njoku or OJ Howard.
  6. That was my other thought as well. Regardless so many other reasons the colts lost. Just an extremely frustrating collapse.
  7. It was down but he wasn't touched...so unless they ruled he gave himself up, he was not down.
  8. Watch the replay...Lamar was not touched when he hit the ground...when he tried to lounge forward to get more yards, his elbow and knees were not on the ground when Leonard punched it out..... take a look at the pic I posted in the tweet.
  9. Lamar fumble should have been reviewed. His knee hit ground but he was not touched. Lunged forward and Leonard knocked the ball out. https://twitter.com/mjgiuliani7/status/1447766530872205313?s=21
  10. That was my guess...either him or Stallworth. Woods was released during initial cutdowns and made it to the practice squad
  11. That is my guess as well...we have 6 DTs on the roster...thinking Woods or Stallworth. Woods was cut earlier this year and on the practice squad.
  12. OJ Howard still really isn't involved in TB passing game. Wonder if he is available in a trade for Marlon Mack and/or mid rd pick.
  13. Elite athlete for his size and ran 4.75 40 at over 300lbs at the combine. Played in a 3-4 at Nebraska and was somewhat misused. Bucs have a terrific DL. Hoping we can develop him https://twitter.com/mathbomb/status/1243511423608782848?s=21
  14. I live outside Philly. Probably 90% of my friends are Eagles fans...they are salivating over getting a top 10 pick...right now I believe it is at #2. You would have to think Irsay would step in if necessary to ensure this doesn't happend...Under no circumstances should the Colts convey at top 10 pick. Eagles fans created the following Carson Wentz snap tracker: https://carsonsnaptracker.com
  15. Thread is way off track again. Mods please fix this.
  16. Anybody paying attention to the success Malik McDowell DT is having with the Browns? Super talent with a ton of issues so Seahawks released him...playing great with the Browns. If Colts think has turned it around, give him a shot. Perhaps start him on the practice squad. If he fails, you cut him without costing you anything. Low risk/potential high reward move. https://www.clevelandbrowns.com/news/browns-counting-on-malik-mcdowell-to-build-on-promising-1st-nfl-start
  17. I posted similar comments to your point #3 in another post. Stop the old school football of trying to overpower your opponent especially when the OL is struggling. Run out of 3 Wr set, spread the field and give your rb some space to pick a hole. Drives me nuts "For years the Colts have insisted on using the power package on the goal line. Every offensive player inside the tight ends. Run the ball up the middle into a clump of waiting defenders. These plays might look/feel great when our line is dominating like in the playoff game in Houston in 2019, but our line is clearly not dominating anyone right now, and probably won't be for some time now. Spread the field so the defense is forced to do the same. "
  18. After the injury happened, I remember being surprised that they didn't start treatment on the sideline and especially after the game. As far as I could tell he did the normal post game press conference without a boot, ice etc.... thought that was unusual.
  19. Along with many others, the three biggest concerns I have are: 1. Red Zone Playcalling - I don't mind being aggressive and going for it on 4th down etc... my issue is consistently trying old school football and trying to pound the ball right up the middle. I much prefer taking shots at the endzone on earlier downs and if you are going to run it - spread the other team out with like 3 wrs to open up space and then run it. Drives me insane. 2. Backup OT - Obvious 2 weeks in a row, teams are attacking Davenport. Rams kept moving Donald to left end on critical plays and we didn't adjust and provide help etc... 3. Pass Rush from DEs - same problem as last year. You win with consistent pressure from the front four. Hopefully Paye develops as season goes on.
  20. Interested to see if Tell and Chachere clear waivers are added to the practice squad. If so, I’m guessing it would be for cb chesley and vet S sean Davis
  21. Exactly so folks shouldn't be upset Chachere is not the practice squad yet
  22. Believe Chachere and Tell would need to clear waivers in order to be added to the colts practice squad or back to the active roster after players go on IR
  23. Watching as well. Players only being able to placed on IR after 4pm today answers the question of why Chachere and Tell were cut vs players being put on IR. Wonder if Chachere & Tell clear waivers, they get added back to active roster once TY, Sam, others get put on IR?
  24. I’m trying to figure out why the Colts didnt place certain players on IR after setting the initial 53 vs releasing Tell & Chachere. Perhaps I didn’t quite understand the timing of things or sequence of events
