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.

    • I've been touting 2020 as "the year" for a while now.  I might be a year too early, but in watching the league this year one thing has struck me:  there aren't any truly "elite" teams out there.  Yes some are better than others, but IMHO the difference between the top and the bottom isn't as great as it used to be.  The Colts are clearly among the average teams, so I think with another shrewd draft (and that Skins round 2 pick sure looks good!) and a couple of impact FA's, I think this team can contend next year.  And Mr. Brady isn't going to be around much longer either.
    • Just to bring this back to last Sunday. Reich should of given hoyer all the snaps in practice.  Because if Jacoby could of went he would of  been fine with no reps. Then we would of had two QB prepared.
    • Agree 100% on Willis from a box perspective. He'll be very good if that's where they focus him. On Okereke, he gets swallowed up easily vs the run. I just don't see that improving a lot with his build. He came from one of the best strength programs in D1, so I just think he's topped out in that space as well. I think that's why they're trying him out in the SAM space.   I think Rock will be fine. Most of his errors are "rookie" type errors you can expect being tossed into the deep end. Physically he's fine. I think the mental part will catch up.
    • That is exactly why the Colts are what they are and teams like the Patriots are a dynasty.  That emotional attachment did not serve Irsay well during the Pagano & Griggson era...did it?   He lost a franchise quarterback as a net result of all of this misplaced attachment because stayed too long with Griggson and Pagano who could not keep Luck out of harm’s way.   Vinny is a legend who has great exploits on his resume.  We get it.  However, I’d argue that most of his greatness was earned wearing another team’s uniform...the Patriots.  He kicked them to 3 Super Bowl titles compared to one in Indy.  He made his name and reputation with the Patriots.  Sure he has played for the Colts longer but his formulative and most accomplished years were spent in New England. And still Belichick had no problem letting him walk in 2005 when he perceived it to be in the best interest of the Patriots.  If Vinatieri was stinking it up like this with the Pats this year he would surely be gone by now...and wisely so.  But Ballard, Reich and Irsay are led by the heart strings (as you imply) and as a result the team suffers on the field.  It’s a bad message sent to the rest of the team.  Certain players can under perform and be rewarded solely on the basis of who they are and what they have achieved in the past.  While others are held accountable for poor play.  It’s a double standard that eats away at that  locker room “culture” that Ballard supposedly values so much.  Well...we are no longer living in the past and the present day Adam Vinatieri is a liability on the field to this football team.  A liability that teams like the Colts choose to live with to their detriment.  That’s not admirable...it is downright foolish in my opinion.
    • Yeah, I’ve been very pleasantly surprised by Willis. Seems to make solid plays most weeks, looked good against Miami. Good closing speed, good instincts.    Also, I know it usually takes longer for CB’s to adjust and it’s way too early to know what we have in him, but I’m in wait and see mode with Rock. Not that I don’t think he can become a capable starter, which I guess is all we can ask for, just won’t be surprised if he doesn’t hit those sky high expectations some had for him. Happy Tell has looked good though, in the small sample size we’ve seen.
