Colts Vs. N.Y. Giants Preseason Game Night Thread

Gonna be a tough decision between Purifoy and Burley if we keep 5 corners.

Purifoy will likely get the nod because of what he brings to special teams.

Whalen might be on outside looking in

 

Griff? He played great tonight. He won't start, but he will be kept for sure.

I would think that might be Rogers Whalen was in with the starters not Rogers.

I didn't say he would be cut just losing return duties

I think both will be kept but Whalen losing return duties to Purifoy

I think we keep 6 Davis Toler Butler Gordy Burley and Purifoy. 4 safety's that is going to be where the big decision is made Colt Anderson has been playing well. Landry Howell then you have Adams Anderson and Brown.

 

Big decisions to be made.

Don't know. DaRick might be coming for that spot before it's all said and done. He has been more impressive thus far.

Agreed but if it comes down to LP and MB Purifoy has the edge due to his return skills

That is because Griff plays the slot and Rogers doesn't

I disagree. Griff is more reliable. Rogers has issues with routes, but he's great when he has to use his straight-line speed. And honestly, Luck has more chemistry with Griff at this point. But that could change.

 

Anyway, they both performed well tonight.

We can't keep them all I would not be surprised if we keep only 5 WR's we are going to have to trade or cut some good players this year.

 

I am very impressed with the team today. We looked good and that was with 2 starters gone on the O Line.

And our two best receivers from last year

I am with you and go ahead and throw Rogers brings nothing to any of the special team units. If we keep 6 then it is a mute point

I wouldn't want to go into the season with only 5 WRs

I don't see it as being a difficult decision. Special teams isn't an aspect coaches take lightly. 

That's true but if they have who they need in special teams, who would make the roster on cornerback ability. I'd be more comfortable with Burley playing (due to injury) at corner than Purifoy.

Purifoy because of versatility

I can see that. But if the coaches have what they need at special teams I think Burley gets the nod because he covers better.

I totally forgot 87 and TY weren't in there. This team has me pretty excited. The D looked good. That play Werner made was the kind of play a 1st round pick makes.

I foresee LP as one of the primary returners

Griff is more reliable but isn't a big play threat. DaRick is on any given play. Just depends on which way the coaching staff wants to augment the receiving corps. Luck has plenty of reliable types in Wayne, T.Y. and possibly Nicks. DaRick adds size and explosiveness to the mix that Griff can't match.

    • I do remember his VCU days in basketball, and he'd absolutely destroy anyone in the paint.    I still go back to that catch during the Raiders game in 2018. That was around our turning point where we just took off and didn't look back. 
    • @John Waylon  great statement 
    • This is why this thing is so out of hand.    A helmet isn’t going to stop the spread. A face shield will lower the chances of spread, but it doesn’t eliminate it.    You don’t have to spend a “considerable amount of time around someone” to catch the virus. You can literally contract it passing someone on a sidewalk if they have recently spouted the virus into the air.    And football players spend the whole game, literally the whole game, running around making contact with others. Breathing heavy. Yelling. Spitting. Slobbering. It’s a wonderful breeding ground for the virus to spread.    Beyond that there are already plenty of high-risk groups who have a chance to suffer from complications of the virus. Maybe they have an elderly family member who lives in-home. Maybe a diabetic or asthmatic child. Maybe they are diabetic.    The kind of narrow and uninformed rhetoric above is exactly why this thing has, and continues to burn through the planet, especially here in the US. 
    • Darius has stated many times that he prefers to play around 220. He was weighed in at 230 for the combine.  But was nursing an injury, and was not able to work out for a lot of that time, and gained some weight.
    • Yeah he is listed at 230. I was thinking more like 235.
