  1. When he was first reinjured the beginning of camp we were told that if they had a game that day he would have been able to play. That was not true. What they should have said is that he is injured and presently we do not know when he will return. Take Campbell for example. He has a hamstring injury. We do not know when he will be ready. that is how it should be handled.
  2. Let me be more clear. First I have attended several Broadway plays and you are incorrect. If the production knows well in advance that a certain actor will not be performing then they cannot continue to advertise that the actor will appear. If the actor becomes ill at the last moment then yes that is certainly a risk that you take but you do not take the risk of false advertisement. Same with athletics. I a player could be injured in warm-ups and not play so that is a risk that one takes. Any last minute event could occur which changes things. We all accept that. However if a team knows that a player cannot play or will not play then to tell the fans that said player is OK and will certainly play is inappropriate.
  3. The NFL is an entertainment business. They make all of their money off of "the fans". If I am going to a broadway play or a concert I have every right to be told who will be performing so I can decide how to use my time. Fans certainly have a right to know who is going to play and who is not going to play.
  4. Turray played very well last night. Do not know what you all are seeing. He almost had two sacks.
  5. I don't think that someone is quitting football over a calf strain.
  6. Need to follow a little bit longer. Ever hear of a coach by the name of Ted Marchibroda. He also coached the Baltimore Colts from 1975-79. Then, the soft-spoken Marchibroda took a once-proud franchise that had hit bottom (2-12) the year before and, in one season, won a division title. Then a second. And a third. A little Colt history. (but you have to be old to know these things.
  7. Anyone who attended the Colts - Seahawk game and watched Luck and Wilson would clearly see that Luck is the better QB. It was obvious.
  8. No I did not I counted nine on the roster at one time. Who were the ten. That would give us a list to start with.
  9. Because we added Houston. If Lewis is DE then you have to cut Al-Quadin Muhammad. We are not going to keep 10 D-Linemen
  10. Here are the DT's Hunt, Audrey, Lewis, Stewart, Ward. If you add McCoy you have to cut one of the above. Steward is the only true NT. So that leave Ward or Hunt. Do you want two 31-32 year old DTs? Are you willing to give up on Ward by cutting him?
  11. No you do not cut young players for old players.

  13. A lot of the draft is about hype. We tend to know the players that get on the Hype Train. Looking at production and stats Banogu is just as good if not better than Burns. These are the production numbers for Burns vs. Banogu 2017 Tackles Solo Ast Loss Sacks Banagu 55 32 23 16.5 8.5 Burns 48 26 22 13.5 4.5 2018 Banagu 57 43 14 18 8.5 Burns 52 31 21 15.5 10 In addition Banagu is 6'4" 250 while Burns is 6"5" 235. If you look at the combine numbers Burns ran a 4.53 and Banagu a 4.6. However the 3 Cone drill was 7.0 for both. Banagu was superior in the athletic tests as it relates to the broad and vertical jumps. Burns refused to bench press which in my opinion tells you something about concerns that he can hold up against the run.
  14. We are going to pick David sills. In 3rd or 4th at wr.
