Hopefully Grigson isn't crazy enough to trade him to some other team for some dude that ain't worth a darn!

Kerr is a big beast. I'll take him over RJF or Pendleton from what I've seen so far.

No way he lasts on the Practice Squad. I think we either keep him on active roster or he is gone.  It is hard to fine nose guards.

Raji went down you think GB might have some interest in him. He was on the roster before tonight in my opinion McKinney is gone probably to GB maybe we could work something out they are deep on D

Is this guy sticking out to anyone else on here? I'm falling in love with this guys motor and his ability to split the line and create havoc. He's the one guy I'm rooting for to make the practice squad this year. I think he could end up being a fine rotational player if he continued to grow. Thoughts?

Hate to tell ya this if he doesn't make the 53 he will be gone he isn't even gonna clear waivers

I like Kerr and I hope he makes the team but every pre-season there is a guy who owns other teams back ups and every year the forum acts like the guy is a superstar the Colts can't cut. This is when I offer my yearly advice of while playing well at any time is a good thing who you do it against does matter. This is why I said I I wish they had played Kerr against other teams ones a little just to see. Beating other teams back ups is nice but those guys aren't going to playing in two weeks, starters are a different level clearly and just because you are good against back ups doesn't mean you will be good against starters. Don't believe me how's last years pre-season super star Ceaser Rayford doing? Don't get me wrong I like what I have seen from Kerr a great deal and I think he's made it very hard for the Colts to release him but I think if he was as good as some here think he is he would be starting not playing against back ups. With that said I think he's earned his spot here and I think he makes the team.

I am not sure, Can he play DE or can Hughes play DE if not we would be keeping 3 nose guards that is kind of overkill, I really like Kerr to but I would not be shocked to see him lost trying to get to the PS, I hope not but Chapman isn't going anywhere and we traded up for Hughes.

 

Tough choices on D this year. That being said I kept him on my projected 53.

anyone who watched second half tell me how other players played henoc muamba purifoy anyone else do anything good?

only guy that jumped out at me was Kerr. Muamba had a sack,  Purifoy returned another punt that helps his chances. It seemed like we had the ball a lot in the second half.

 

Yeah looking at time of possession Saints had it 20mins in the first half only 12 in the second so the 2 and 3's didn't get a lot of action.

 

Boom and Tipton ran well. Eric Thomas did not play well. He came in with some hype hasn't lived up to it could be playing with Harnish but he had an important one late that seemed to just go thru his hands.

I've mostly seen Kerr on the field at DE with McKinney at NT, and he subbed for Art Jones at DE when he got injured in the first half.  Both he and Hughes appear to fit the versatility that they want.  McKinney has exceeded expectations as well, but I don't see us keeping him, and therefore 7 DL, in a year where we are looking to keep 6 WR and sorting out depth at LB and safety.

Yall acting like Kerr wasn't good when he was in with the first team.

I thought he looked just as good as anyone else on the field with the ones. He didn't stand out in a bad way so that is very good. I like the kid, plenty if room to grow. He can only continue to get better if he outs in the work.

I want this fat boy on the team. I like his energy, dance moves and overall fatness. Heck...I say stick this big boy on the OLine as well and let's see if he can open up some holes for the run game. At least look at him down by the goal line. Give him the ball even. Lol Couldn't hurt as nothing else seems to be working.

He's a lot like Chapman in terms of showing some speed for being a big man. Never gives up on plays and isn't afraid to chase the ball carrier down. That's the kind of traits I am looking for.

he's faster than chapman IMO (as far as pursuit speed)

He did play some snaps with the first team last night and then played almost the entire second half

Gotta admit, Harnish has looked better than previous games. At least he threw a nice td pass.

Kerr's sack dance was the highlight of the game for me.  I love to watch a guy who is playing hard and having fun doing it.  I would like to see the Colts pop for a bigger jersey for him, though. The one he was wearing last night looked like it was about stretched to its limits.  I'd hate to see a man that size have a "wardrobe malfunction".

I agree that there is no way he stays on the P.S. this kid is just plain good. If he doesn't make the 53 man squad after last night against the saints then someone needs to go get their eyes checked out. He just has a motor that won't stop. And I have to agree with some of you that Mckinney is looking like the odd man out.

Kerr had a good game last nite and I feel he deserves a spot on the final roster.  If he gets put on the PS, chances are he will be snatched up pretty quick.  I didn't realize he was such a big guy until his dance move last nite  LOL.  He's a beast !!!

He can play DE and NT.  The big fella has some wheels on him, it's surprising how fast he moves.

Muamba was around the ball on every play

I was looking for him to come in for Sheppard earlier his over pursuit created the lane that gave up the one long run vs the 1's I thought He got trapped in the mess.

 

Kind of mad at myself didn't hit record gotta wait on the replay from ESPN its hard to see things when you are into it emotionally sometimes

He earned himself a job last night. Even if he doesn't make our final roster, there should be at least a handful of teams putting in a waiver claim on him. He looked better than anyone who was put in front of him yesterday.

 

 

If you read the pre draft scouting reports on him , there is no reason that he was not somewhere drafted in rounds 5-7. I would also say that according to scouting reports , if you can go by them , it would be no huge shock that he ended up being a very good NFL player. Also ran a 5.1 40 and had 28 reps , and has long arms. I thought that one play in the second half where he ran down the RB behind the LOC was very impressive. IMO , it doesn't matter if this was vs the first team or the 3rd team.

i like both Kerr and McKinney alot. Kerr has made plays with pressure on the QB and 3rd down defense and 

 

McKinney has been clogging holes and taking on double teams rather well. I hope they both make the 53. I dont

 

understand why people say Kerr outplayed McKinney,they both have impressed me.

boy do i know that feeling living in VA and working all the time thank god for preseason live online thing. Personally i hope they both

 

make the roster but i always have my more favorite players on the roster. Brandon McKinney just happens to be one.

 

I also really like Kelvin Sheppard but that's a sentiment many dont share. I guess with Brandon i just like the

 

comeback from the ACL and hope he gets a spot but i understand we're crowded (with talent) at the D-Line and NT in particular.

I expected him to get drafted. He was the one UDFA that we got that I definitely thought should have been picked. He looks like a catch, for sure.

    • They were never going to pick Lamar in 2018   Karl Joseph is a bench player and Fitzpatrick is much better than him anyways   Not sure what this post is getting after
    • They are likely kicking the can down the road, and the negative consequence is higher cap numbers for those players in future seasons, and greater cap penalties to move on from those players in future seasons. The thing is there's no much else they can do. they're set to be nearly $70m over the cap in 2021, and other than these restructures, they would not be able to get under the cap by the start of the new league year. They would have to cut or trade all of their highly paid players.
    • I feel the hype about Carl Lawson is from a combination of people who haven't really watched him play, and who overrate "pressures" by assuming that all pressures are equally disruptive.    Lawson is a tough, physical, high effort guy, he tackles well, plays the run reasonably well, he has decent size, and he would fit nicely as a DE for us. He's not a dynamic pass rusher, and I don't think he ever would be a dynamic pass rusher.   He has some quickness and speed, good speed to power, but he's not the kind of explosive pass rusher that blows up the other team's blocking schemes. He has below average bend and closing speed, and he takes a lot of steps, which explains his tragically poor three cone. He also has below average length, and gets neutralized by good blockers. This is all obvious on his tape, it was obvious on his college tape, and it's why he went in the 4th round.   TomDiggs mentioned Lawson's knockdowns/hits and hurries. PFF recorded six edge rushers with at least QB 15 hits; despite the fact that Lawson had 24 hits, he only had five sacks, which is the least sacks among those six players. In fact, there were ten edges with fewer than 15 QB hits, but with at least ten sacks. PFF has 24 edges with at least 30 pressures; Lawson had 34 hurries, but was tied for fifth fewest sacks among those 24 players. In fact, there were five edges with fewer hurries than Lawson, but at least ten sacks.   My point is that QB hits and pressures only show a player that manages to get near the QB at some point during the play. Without context, they don't necessarily show a player that makes a definite impact on the play. That's why I value PFF's pass rush productivity (PRP) stat, because sacks are weighted more heavily than hits and pressures. And that makes sense because a sack ends the play. A QB can be pressured, even hit, and still make a positive play. Recognizing a sack as nearly always a negative play for the offense, PRP shows the difference between a guy who gets near the QB, and a pass rusher who makes plays for the defense. Sometimes the overlap is not as great as you might think.   Lawson's PRP was 8.5, tied for #18, well separated from guys like Bosa (10.6) and Watt (9.7). In general, a player with a bunch of total pressures, but low sack numbers, like Lawson, is a guy who gets a bunch of pass rush snaps but doesn't have the length, bend and closing speed to get home often enough. This is why guys like Trey Hendrickson and Leonard Floyd can have a third fewer total pressures, but twice as many sacks as Lawson (Hendrickson also had 80 fewer pass rush snaps). And Lawson gets a ton of pass rush snaps because he plays for a bad team with no other good edge rushers, so as long as he's healthy he'll have a lot of pressures, but he'll probably never be a big sack guy.   He's Trey Flowers. Better 40, same agility, not as long, mid level edge rusher who is well rounded and a good guy to have on your team, but not a dominant pass rusher. I can't see offering him $14m/year to not sack the QB. Any projection that has him as a big time sack guy is unrealistic, IMO.
    • It's nice to see Pittman, Smith and Okereke get some love.
    • Did I misread your post?   Did you not say you were in favor of moving Nelson to LT?   That if we’re going to pay him top dollar, it would be better to do it with him as our LT instead of at LG?    That wasn’t you?    I’m sorry, I thought that’s what I responded to....
