Colts cuts: 53 man roster (Official Thread)

Recommended Posts

Austin could be the first guy to go

Austin is gonna be the first to go. No reason for 3 C's. Just our 2 top C's are banged up unfortunately. But if they ever get healthy we don't need 3 C's

One angle, sort of critical, is that we don't have any of Grigson's 6th rounders on the roster right now. Maybe Andrew Jackson hits the PS. So we have to determine how valuable a 6th rounder is to our team.

 

Still, I'm fine with the move. I think Burley is better than Purifoy, based on preseason, but Purifoy was okay also, and can return punts. Fair move.

 

I think of all things, I trust Pagano's input on the DB's and his evaluations along with position coaches.  That's always been his wheelhouse.

Poor Champ Bailey..

Dude is quite rich, still healthy enough to play football and young enough to enjoy the rest of his life after a stellar career.  He's among the last people I would feel sorry for.  Father time is undefeated, but for him, he got out with his health and his money and his amazing career intact! Someone may actually still pick him up but even if they don't, he's leaving on a high note of life.

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

According to Jeff Saturday, as a pass rush, Michael Sam was not to be feared or even concerned with.  Slow first step, no power or speed move to worry about.  He said the only thing he had going for him was that he'd make you keep your fundamentals going the entire play because he has a high motor and relentless effort.  He said there's just no need for his skill set.  It was also said he could not play ANY special teams and was vying for the 9th D lineman spot with the first 8 locked down and battled it out with a guy who could play every position on the DLine and on special teams.  Face it, the guy was a specialist in College Football and it isn't translating to the NFL.  He might still make a team somewhere desperate for any pass rushers, but it doesn't sound like anything we'd have reason to consider.

Right now? No

Won't count on the roster until week 5 against the Ravens

By then Da'Rick Rogers will be gone anyway so we're good

 

I see what you did there.   ;)

Guess I don't grasp the meaning of this...

On topic I would love to take a short for Britton.

 

Sorry. I find your profile pic unsettling... Hadn't noticed it before today.

 

Completely off topic, and irrelevant.

it's about time. chalk up another horrible tread for grigson, a starting lb for nothing. will this or the richardson trade be worse over time? i really think richardson would be cut also if he didn't have a guaranteed contract. that's why cleveland got rid of him.

I didn't know Grigson was in the tyre business with all this talk of horrible treads... Maybe the tyre kicking business :P

    • Sure it matters.  Intent always matters in any action.  Its the major difference between Murder 1 and Manslaughter, for example.
    • Like always, injuries will help shape the final roster.....   Unfortunately.....
    • One thing is for certain this year (on paper so far) we are going to either lose a talent on WR, RB or TE depending on what direction they lean on. If we keep only 5 wr’s thinking that Hines is interchangeable, we lose out on either Fountain, Pascal, Johnson or Rogers. If we think keep 6 WR’s, we sacrifice that by going 3 rb’s and give up on Ware, Williams or Wilkins. And at TE, you risk a cut to either Cox, Travis or Hetges.    Now some of these guys could make it to the PS but not all of them. Highly unlikely we would run with 2 TE’s but if they view DF in a split type WR/TE role, anything is possible. Could either Williams or Wilkins make it to our PS, idk. Every time Wilkins runs the ball, he gets 5 yards it seems, you would have to think another teams seriously takes a look at that option and we all know how much praise CB has poured out on Williams RB abilities. As for the WR’s no way around it, we are going to lose a talent from this pool. Johnson, Pascal, Ishmail, Fountain, Hogan or Rogers, all of these have a talent ability to make several teams rosters and be an upgrade to several teams. DF better ball out at a 13 million product for us risking losing one of these young talents or some fans will never like DF regardless of what he does if he is just average and then off the team after this season. He would essentially become the teams flogging project if he isn’t a star imho. 
    • Watery eyes, runny nose, difficulty breathing... I must be allergic to reading stories like this...   Faith in humanity restored!  
    • It depends on how many out of the current group they feel they can safely keep on the practice squad. I think 4 is kind of crazy, but when you look at keeping a plethora of tight ends and maybe an extra runningback on active roster, you start factoring Ebron and Hines in as receivers more than tight end and runningback, as we will likely see those two split out more than in a traditional role. That's the beauty of versatility.
