Colts cuts: 53 man roster (Official Thread)

Recommended Posts

We can all agree that his quarterbacks have been horrible.

 

That's true. But I think we should all be able to agree that he's been horrible. Parting with him after just two years is cringe-worthy, but he's a holdover from Tannenbaum's regime, so...

I wouldn't.  The Cardinals have a terrible OLine.  They signed Snyder to a big free agent contract and was a bust.  No thanks.

 

He went back to the 49ers last year, and got caught in a numbers game on a good O-Line.

 

I think he could help us, in a big way. Plus he can play tackle if needed.

Stephen Hill got his fame when he did that one catch in college. I remember that play, was watching that game on TV. They played it on ESPN endlessly

And then of course the Jets just took him expecting him to be good when even in college he was average

Rarely ever a good idea to take a WR from a team that runs the option like Navy, Army, GT, etc etc

Megatron was just that once in a lifetime guy

It is not always a bad idea just to rush him into action

It has been well reported how RJF has had a poor training camp.

He did very little last year, and nothing this preseason.

So I would disagree he is a good player. However, since we have no other players to replace him (and cutting him would result in major "dead cap money" I expect RJF stays one more year.

 

You correctly stated our primary disagreement.

 

I think he's slightly overpaid, but I think his contributions will be critical for us this season. If he isn't on point, we can cut him prior to 2015.

Stephen Holder @HolderStephen  ·  6m

Things still really, really fluid for Colts. Players still getting phone calls to come in. They're taking it down to the wire

There is always going to be one surprise cut.

But the first cut is the deepest.

Okay, I'm feeling better about my Buckeyes now...

Off topic, Virginia's QB Johns is making plays, carving up UCLA. This game has been fun to watch.

22 million for a guy who is no better than Zach Kerr is way over paid.

I feel like a couple years ago, final cuts were due by late Sunday, or something... I don't think the day and time is always the same.

 

 

I could be crazy and or dreaming but I seem to remember that the Colt's list was not released to the public for at least a couple of hours past the deadline.

Why is it that Stephen Holder is the only Colts insider getting information?

The rest of them are covering college basketball.

Only time will tell with Ricky. We can rehash this discussion after a few games (that count) and see how RJF has faired.

Well he did come from a college that basically all they did was an option offense, Him being raw and needing a few years to grow into a being a NFL caliber receiver should be no surprise

Glad to see Rogers made it as well as Griff and Moncrief. We will carry a bevy of talent at receiver to start the season.

    • The Steelers are playing with their 2nd stringer also...
    • There is also two other WRs at the bottom of the screen coming open on that same play. Smh. Options everywhere
    • I hope you’ll be proven right.  I fear you won’t.   I will say that teams like JAX and TEN had more invested in their high first-round picks Bortles and Mariota than the Colts do in JB, who we traded for in a moment of immediate need.   That said, it just seems more common in the league to wait too long based on a belief that a player’s full potential is high and just around the corner.
    • they are in the playoff hunt, but not many people think they will win a super bowl.  most of the top teams have really good QBs
    • What I'm getting at, though, is that regardless of his circumstances, it's possible to evaluate a QB on the basis of his performance, abilities, traits, and perceived potential to improve. That's my viewpoint.   Of course, the rougher the circumstances and the greater the number of variables, the more complicated the evaluation becomes. But while the receivers haven't been great, we can still look at JB and see what he does well and what he doesn't do well, we can reach reasonable conclusions about why he excels or struggles in certain areas, and we can project whether he can reasonably improve and become a player worthy of an investment of time and money, and worthy of building around. Sure, it's somewhat complicated, but it's not all that difficult, IMO.   What the Colts do at QB in the offseason will depend, to a large degree, on their evaluation of JB. I am confident that they will not say 'well, JB had a rough set of circumstances, let's wait and see what he does next year.' If they strongly feel that he's good enough to build around, that will affect how seriously they pursue other options at the position. But if they aren't sold on him, I don't think they'll just say 'let's give him another year, let's give him another year.'
