  1. Think it had more to do with Geathers and Hooker back practicing, but he was out the door anyway.
  2. Wouldn't mind signing Brandon Coleman at this point
  3. I fully expect Darrel Daniels to make the team over Swoope at TE.
  4. I thought he suffered a serious injury with the Patriots
  5. Reece Fountain been out with a knee issue as well. Hopefully he can practice soon
  6. Skai Moore is going to be a future playmaker.
  7. highly unlikely, teams will just find a backup TE of his caliber on the final cuts waiver wire before they give up compensation for Erik Swoope.
  8. All of the young guys on defense and they're are a lot of them. Tyquan Lewis, Kemoko Turay, Tarell Basham, Grover Stewart, Skai Moore, Darius Leonard, Zaire Franklin, Matthew Adams, Quincy Wilson, Nate Hairston, Kenny Moore, TJ Green
  9. The DC definitely said it, I don't think Pagano publicly said but if the DC says it, im pretty sure the HC agreed. https://www.indystar.com/story/sports/nfl/colts/2018/05/01/colts-quincy-wilson-comes-clean-rocky-rookie-season/568987002/
  10. Last year they listed Tevin Mitchell and Daryl Morris ahead of Quincy Wilson on the 1st depth chart. I don't even think they made the team last year.
  11. time to let Djoun Smith just take over from here, because a practice squad guy off the street can come in and do what Toler has been doing.
  12. The passing game struggled, but don’t point to the offensive line this time. In previous seasons, yes, the Colts’ line has been subpar, but they did a nice job holding up against a fierce Bills defense that blitzed QB Andrew Luck on 30 of his 53 dropbacks, but only managed to pressure him 11 times. – The real struggle for the Colts came against Buffalo’s coverage that blanketed their receivers for much of the afternoon and put a lot of pressure on Luck to be pinpoint accurate—which he certainly was not. The Colts scheme also relied heavily on isolation routes, hoping for their wide receivers to simply beat their man in coverage, rather than scheming up plays that make it difficult to play man coverage. WR T.Y. Hilton still came away with a nice +2.0 grade, but newcomer Andre Johnson posted ac2.1 grade after catching four of his 10 targets for only 24 yards. – Defensively, the Colts managed only one positive grade in their front-seven, and it went to rookie DE Henry Anderson (+0.3). The third-rounder led the team with seven tackles and five stops, while posting a +1.0 grade against the run while playing 49 of 59 snaps. Top Performers: RT Jack Mewhort +2.6 LT Anthony Castonzo +2.1 WR T.Y. Hilton +2.1 RG Todd Herremans +1.8 CB Vontae Davis +1.4 Buffalo Bills – The defensive backs stole the show, playing tight coverage for much of the game and looking like a great fit for new head coach Rex Ryan’s defense. Bills DBs deflected eight total passes on the day, led by CB Stephon Gilmore’s four. – At QB, Tyrod Taylor had a nice debut for Buffalo, finishing at +0.4, including one of the week’s best throws, a 51-yard strike that hit WR Percy Harvin in stride for a touchdown. Beyond that, there weren’t a lot of challenging throws, but he found the open man to finish with an accuracy percentage of 83.3 percent (ranked seventh in the league this week). The one blip was his fumbled shotgun snap, which he quickly recovered, though putting the ball on the ground is always dangerous. – As has generally been the case with recent Rex Ryan defenses, they get after the quarterback (aforementioned 30 blitzes on 52 dropbacks), though not many got home to actually achieve pressure. The blitzes did bring the illusion of pressure, which is often just as good, but with pass rushers like Jerry Hughes and Mario Williams posting identical -2.1 pass rush grades, more is still expected from the Bills’ defensive front. - PFF
  13. And in what way do they look like criminals? They look like football players to me
  14. Lance Louis is worse than I thought after re watching the game, Holmes was fine for the most part but Louis couldn't pull, trap block, pass protect, he just can't. And on Khaled Holmes holding penalty, why is Pep asking his center to block a 3 technique? The center loses that battle by default, it's almost impossible for a center to block someone lined up outside the OG. I get when the guard pulls the center peels back but that's when the DT is lined up in a 1-2 tech not a 3 tech, he'll never make that block
