Recommended Posts

WOW!!!!!

@HolderStephen: A source told me the Seahawks think Burley is a candidate to play nickel corner. That's high praise

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

 

Purifoy has a higher ceiling and I think is better on STs -- I was thinking it'd be very tough to select the last CB for this squad between Purifoy and Burley, so I am glad we at least got something for one of them.  I bet Price goes back to P.S.

 

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.

Maybe we sign Duke and then if Landry gets hurt we have the Broncos starting safeties from last year as our starters with Duke and Adams.

I would definitely look at picking up Ihenacho. Could be a good starter if (when) a safety gets hurt. Don't really think Colt Anderson would do it for more than special teams.

And we were right. Rayford didn't do anything for the Cowboys, and we got a pick out of it.

 

EDIT: That pick for Rayford comes in the 2015 draft also.

 

 

In fact Rayford just got cut

Depends on who we sign. I won't be surprised if a couple vets are signed.

 

I just did some quick and probably sloppy math, and it looks like our 53 man roster plus IR is going to keep us with just over $17m in cap space for 2014. Of course, any pending moves will change this figure, but because we kept some UDFAs and cut a few higher paid vets (Sheppard, Saunders, McKinney, etc.), we're pretty much neutral to where we were with the top 51 number.

I wont be surprised if we bring in Joe McKnight-Jets for Return duties, He probably gets cut. Marcus Thigpen-Dolphins is another, Justin Forsett-Ravens...Leon Washington-Titans...But I don't think that happens though.

He's on the Chiefs not the Jets

Exactly. We could re-sign him if we wanted, and still have the 7th rounder we gave up for him. No way was that a bad trade, despite The Great Outcry of August 2013.

He's be much better than Anderson unless he's expecting to start somewhere.

First impressions:  We keep Austin because Holmes and Harrison are not ready for Week 1.  Delano Howell's injury is serious enough that the Colts think no one will claim him; worst case scenario, he is done with football. The Colts believe Reitz and Nixon will be healed soon.  We are very thin at safety.

Many people on this forum believe Purifoy can play a bit of safety, also Ed Reynolds and Craig Loston are safeties that I think we should strongly consider.

I think Loston got waived over a failed drug test

I think Adams is the starter. Anderson and Brown will be reserves, and special teams aces. We have two great gunners again.

I love Grigson as the GM :heart:

Why? Because his time to shine is coming shortly with all these cuts and opportunities for trades

I thought he was pretty good, but really no room here with Gordy and Butler.  Also with them keeping Purifoy

Rams released Michael Sam. 

 

No, I don't want him. He's not a good fit for our defense. But I think he'll get claimed by someone.

Didn't his CFB team run a 3-4 defense?

Every single snap I looked at Purifoy in that Bengals game I really felt like he would be really good as safety and I still feel that way.  He has all the size, instincts, cover skills and willingness for contact that the position would require.

He doesn't fit our system unless we brought him in just for blitz packages. I love his heart and first step, but he's not what we need right now. I wish him the absolute best though, he proved that he does belong in this league and that he can play.

I don't think so. Even if they did, he wasn't a LB. He's a 4-3 end, and not particularly quick or fluid in his movement, so no reason to project him to 3-4 OLB.

There are dozens of veteran quarterbacks who have played in the NFL, and wish they were where Luck is now by their 10th year.

I'm sure there are, but that doesn't mean that what Gavin said isn't true

I don't know if you remember, but Jerry Hughes was horrible for us.

Some guys just take a little longer to grow.. I thought he was just beginning to come around when he cut him. I proved to be right

He's a little wiry, but I agree with everything else.

Sam actually had a good preseason so saying he's not good is a tad bit invalid

Poor Champ Bailey..

 

Colts pick him up and make him a safety :36dancing:

I mean, he had a pretty good preseason. Granted so did Caesar Rayford and he's not very good. I think he's just too much "baggage" whether it's right or wrong. He was the SEC defensive player of the year, I mean he's not totally useless/bad.

I'm cool with the draft pick we got for Burley so him getting traded away isn't bad either, but I think we could have kept him if we moved Purifoy over to safety perhaps.  Could be wrong

Not bad at all. Just too much media attention (what you called "baggage")

Media destroyed the man's career partly

Bears gonna sign him though cause their GM was targeting him after the draft

Meaning wasn't good enough to make the 53. Hey, I'm sure he can still keep working and improve. I'm just sick and tired of hearing about this dude. Who cares if he's gay, either you can play or you can't. Can't watch anything without race, religion and sexual preference being talked about non stop.

    • I am one that has no problem with people using stats to help measure a player. I got my degree in Business from IUPUI and had to take rough math classes and a statistic class that was off the chart. Stats are important, I get that. All I have ever said is there are more to rating a player than stats. Leadership is gigantic, at least to me it is, that is not a stat and can't be measured. JB is a great leader. The only 2 stats some seem to keep bringing up in here to say JB struggles or is below average are YPA and total yards passing per game. Every time someone tries to come back and say well he has 15 TD's in 8 games and only 4 INT's it gets ignored by those same people. Those 2 stats are crucial to stat people. If we had a QB that threw a lot of INT's we would stink period. Also another crucial stat is red zone efficiency, JB is great in the red zone.    To me this is just a waste of a post and my last one on it because with some they ignore other facts other than YPA and total yards passing. How can anyone have a reasonable debate with someone when they ignore things like a QB's leadership, that the WR core is average at best, etc.. Even when Hilton has played this season he has been banged up for the most part.   One last thing, it would be one thing if we were losing to bring up JB's yards passing but we are winning. JB isn't costing us any games as of now. If it was costing us games I would buy into some of these posts but it's not. I was listening to the Dan Dakich show earlier and he was saying how some Colts fans do not think JB is any good. He just laughed and said it is because they want a QB that throws for 5000 yards and is flashy. I rarely agree with him but he has a good point here. Some just need to accept JB isn't Andrew Luck and we now have a run 1st offense. I have accepted it because we are winning and as a fan have to accept it because that is the hand we are dealt. The only alternative is, not to watch anymore.
    • Good tidbits. To add - We were gifted a in-the-grasp on a TD throw by Watkins. A healthy Fuller scares me. 
    • The Week 7 meeting: Colts 30 TX 23 Brissett was 26 of 39 for 326 yards passing nd 4 TDs He is 4-0 vs, TX. Hooker & Kenny Moore did not play. TX had 10 penalties for 54 yards. TX were 2 for 5 in the Red Zone. The Colts did not get one first down running the ball. Watson was 23 of 43 for 308 yards. Hopkins caught nine passes. Will Fuller left the game with an injury. What impact if any will the hammering of the Texans have on their game?  The Texans have the Patriots next.
    • We should run all over Carolina, so that's positive. Allen is so inconsistent. He's putting up plenty of yards, but he's been an INT machine at times. If he has a clean game, could be trouble. I was very surprised they beat TN, and stayed close to GB in GB.
    • To some degree it makes sense.  Cain hasn't lived up to the hype (maybe he's not fully healthy) and Campbell is still pretty raw.  I think Campbell started showing very positive strides in the last game he played prior to getting injured.     Early in the season the only true, consistent deep threat we had was TY.  I think if TY is fully healthy, Funchess is fully healthy, and Campbell/Pascal are fully healthy down this last stretch, we'll see more wrinkles (including deep routes) in our offense.
