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.

We're probably the most active forum during cut days.

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.

    • Had Funchess been practing? I thought he had to practice for two weeks before being able to come back?
    • Oh you were right on that one.  I still won, but I missed out on having highest score of the week by .32 points.  Our league pays out for highest weekly scores. 
    • I think there's a danger with any position of getting enamoured with the 40 time, I'd put 3 cone over it certainly. However, as always never go by just one metric, and never put metrics over film.    For all that was written about him being a below average athlete, if you compare  him to some of the 'good' SS's in the league he matches up pretty well:   Willis 4.55s (40)/7.15s (3 Cone) Collins 4.53s (40)/7.53s (3 Cone) Chancellor 4.69s (40)/7.36s (3 Cone) Jones  4.51s (40)/7.43s (3 Cone)  Adams  4.56s (40)/6.96s (3 Cone)    etc etc... 
    • CeeDee Lamb would be the dream pick imo. Reminds me a lot of Hopkins/Thomas, good size, great route runner and hands. Means he could take on a high volume of targets in the short/intermediate range, something I think Frank Reich badly needs (that's why he was high on signing Funchess). Put him on the boundary opposite Hilton and Campbell in the slot and we have serious options. Not as high on Ruggs when we already have Hilton.   I like Mack as a lead back, but not 25 carries a game. I would prefer a legit RB2 to take some of that load off him, preferably a RB to compliments his game, so a heavier, more physical, north/south RB. This draft has options in the mid round.
    • Here's where I think Kelly 'fans' are distressed. To your point we don't know Kelly...fair.  So what do we know.  We know he can run, dude's fast.  We know he has a strong arm, like that.  We know he'll throw downfield and into tight windows, good!  We know he will stand in the pocket, check. We know he has the stuff to go into Alabama with an Ole Miss team and beat em, that no small thing. We also know he has off-field issues maybe he's grown up, don't know but we hear good things from Frank.  So to someone like me, I like what I see and like what I hear...Rally confused.   Here's what we know about Hoyer, he has none of those physical attributes but he's good in the QB room.  Ok, well, I'm good in QB room but you wouldn't want me under center.  There's an obvious hesitation here on the part of Frank and/or Chris to make Kelly a part of the permanent roster, they will likely cut him again and hope he clears waivers over Hoyer, that to me is absolutely stunning.  Either, Kelly is an off the field nightmare we shouldn't be investing in OR he should be at worst QB2. Hoyer is simply not good, we can get his level of performance literally anywhere, he's the prototypical failed backup and those are readily available on the cheap. I wouldn't understand keeping him over a contract when he weakens the team relative to someone like Kelly on game day.  So to a previous posters comment, why is Kelly here?  If he is such an integrity issue it's not our job to make a man out of him while he occupies a spot.  If he's is good enough physically, which he is, and he's on this roster, which he is, he should stay up and get some first team reps, as all back ups should and see how matures.  It starting to feel like some ego at play here.  All in all, our leadership was ill-prepared to deal with Brissett going down and choked this week in prep.  It's my hope we dump Hoyer who is useless and keep Kelly at QB2, I don't think that will happen.  My 2+ cents.
