Colts cuts: 53 man roster (Official Thread)

Recommended Posts

Why trade Burley. I think that comes back to bite us honestly. He was better than purifoy.

 

I'd rather have Burley, but so would the Seahawks. And that's probably the reason we traded him. Not a bad return for a UDFA.

Thing to keep in mind to, is we all thought this same thing about Reyford last year too.

Be my guest.

A phone isn't too conducive to typing that much. But thank you for the invitation.

Perhaps more to the point, I'd rather have Purifoy plus a pick, than Burley.

Good trade for Burley. He has a better chance developing into a solid corner playing with the Legion Of Boom. At least Colts got a future draft pick for an undrafted free agent.

I bet when they get the clearance on Holmes and Harrison injuries Austin will be cut for a different lineman.

I didn't realize the Broncos also got rid of Duke Ihenacho as well.  

#Broncos waive SS Duke Ihenacho; rookie LB Shaq Barrett. Ihenacho a 17-game starter last yr. Beat out by T.J. Ward/Quinton Carter this year.

    • Seems odd in general that it took so long.  Outside of the guy in SD, we rarely hear why someone holds out this long on a mundane contract with so little to quibble over. 
    • One thing I’ll say about Bob though, his small size & Wolverine (comic book character) mentality made him a terror against the run.  With him already being short, when he went submarine on a RB, they really risked their careers if their feet were planted when the Colonel was coming for them.  He turned so many guys into tip toe bandits or sent them helicoptering into the air.  No wonder our run defense was so stout.  Usually only took 1 “meeting” with Bob in the hole, to put fear in the RB’s head the rest of the game...  You had to know where he was at all times or kiss your knees goodbye.
    • I have to disagree with the last sentence. I think Sean Taylor (The former Hurricane & Redskin safety) was and would have statistically been better than all 3 had he not been murdered.  That dude was what you’d get if you created a cyborg safety. Big. Fast. Physical. And immaculate receiver level ball skills...  I still love the other 3, especially the Colonel, but Taylor was on another level.  A combination of all 3.
    • This is a big compliment for KM.    
    • No, if he wants to go be a gm somewhere who are we to hold him back from that.
