So..... Coby Fleener, Dwayne Allen, & DJ

 

Okay, 3 TE's isn't bad

 

4 safeties healthy out of 5 is great. Hope Howell has a speedy recovery. Probably banged up from the fight he gave to make the final 53. Rest is well deserved for him haha

 

Kelvin Sheppard starting should be interesting how him & Freeman play together

 

And no Hughes means more PT for TNT (Josh Chapman)

Who said anything about Howell being injured? He wasn't on the injury report.

that doesn't mean he's hurt you can only dress 46 on game days so sometimes you have healthy scratches.

 

 

Inactive doesnt mean injured. We can only have 46 active. He's fine.

 

 

That doesn't mean hurt, you can only dress 46 players, 7 have to be on the inactives list

 

Oh, well HTown you should've put that in the OP. I figured inactive means injured

Lol my bad, I just assumed everybody knew that already

 

Man, look the NFL has way too many rules to be keeping up with. You spend all pre-season eyeing your players seeing who comes on the 53 then you can only dress 46? That's stupid. Howell worked his butt off to make the roster now he has to sit on the sideline in street clothes or his jersey or whatever they sit in and watch from the sideline. That's messed up imo

I agree, the 46 man active roster makes no sense. You could potentially have a guy who's banged up during the game having to play when you have a perfectly healthy inactive player on your bench.

I asked the guys from Colts Authority if they had a reason, they discussed it on their podcast and agree it makes no sense.

I'd like to get the question to the NFLPA or the competition committee. This is a player safety issue.

So you mean to tell me that half of the people who try to argue about everything, with everyone, as if they know everything; they do not know the 46 dress rule?

 

I Would Have Never Guessed We Have People Here Like That.  :neener:

    • Positions that are clear (real and perceived) QB1, X-WR, RB1, APB, RT, RG, C, LG, 3T, NT, CB1 (Rhodes), NB (Moore), WILL, TE1 and TE2.   The rest, have some element of fog (real or perceived) IMO.   Offense QB2 - If Eason is clearly #2, not sure whey we waste a draft pick on another QB. I didn't get it then, and not now lol. Z - Hilton his aging. Pretty clear the plan when drafting Campbell was that he would gradually work outside. Slot - PC is the obvious guy if healthy, but if he is healthy, and they start moving him outside, we still have questions.  LT - Fisher is clear if he returns to form. If not, a lot of fog. TE3 - Granson is a wildcard but assuming they want to use him as a move-slot-TE like they tried to use Burton. Not really a true TE   Defense L and RDE - time share here. There are several rotations I can see here, and likely won't be set early. MIKE - Oke is the clear leader, but there will be a lot of eyes on his run D. A time share here would not shock me. SAM - we don't use it a lot, so who knows. I could even see Oke playing SAM and Franklin handling MIKE on those SAM downs. LB Depth - who knows. Will we ever see Speed emerge? CB2 and CB Detph - RYS vs Carrie vs Tell vs Rogers. Nothing would surprise me. FS - Blackmon needs to take a big step forward in deep coverage. If not, I could see a rotation here. SS - Willis is very solid, but I could see him getting pushed by Shawn Davis.  
    • I think the QB position is a little unique in terms of depth expectation and planning.  And it depends on your expectations of the team.  See below in my response to CR91 for more.   Not sure I understand. How was letting Walker go an "answer".      Couple points here...  Hoyer's loss vs Miami was 99% on Reich. After Hoyer played pretty well vs Pitt (coming in cold) in which he had 3 TDs / 1 INT and completed 65% of passes, Reich chose to 1) not practice Hoyer with the 1s leading up to the Miami game, and 2) chose to throw it all over the school yard (around 40 attempts) vs a team that was horrible vs the run. Just super bad game plan and prep. I agree that a pricey vet QB, or spending much on a backup QB in general is pretty much a waste. That is, unless you are a true SB contender going into the year (and can afford it). I've always felt if your starting QB goes down for the year, might as well accept things and embrace a higher draft pick come next draft. It's extremely rare to go deep with a backup. Even Foles wasn't seen as a high end backup. He was just off a cheap one year deal, and was contemplating retirement. He came back to Philly for a moderate deal, which most thought was even too much. That was purely luck. Just my opinion, but I like riding out Eason and trying to develop him along the way. And trade him (if he's not in contention for starting job) later if you can get picks, or keep him if he's decent and cheap. I, like you, like what the Pats do most years.
    • I don’t think a decision can be made until the preseason when we all see if Eason can play.  There are guys out there like Barkley, who can get you through a game or two in a pinch.  From what I read the Bears will probably keep Foles simply because his contract makes it easy for them   But my point was that it’s interesting that most of of aren’t really concerned about the backup QB even though it’s the position that we have least experience.  
    • Not saying we're going to be horrible vs the run, just saying we have a lot of new pieces. I'm honestly not sure Paye will even be in on early run downs at this point. Could be Lewis and AQM, or Lewis and Rochell. We all know Buckner is a monster, but beyond that, just not sure. Grover is good, but not great. I'd love to see him continue to develop. He's only in on early downs most sets though.   But yes, if we fail in that area, our D could be scary bad. I'm just hoping Blackmon learns to cover deep, RYS is healthy and returns to 2H 2019 form, Rhodes has a few more years left, and Kenny stays healthy. I expect Willis will be his solid self. I expect a shaky start to the season though.
