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

    • I had us 9-7 just based on guessing/hoping/predicting Luck would be healthy and play great. I was right but a lucky guess, I guess  . I thought that would get us a 6th seed. We won 10 games which got us in.
    • For the first time in a while, I am impressed with the Colts development of players. If this current trend continues, a lot of opinions will change. 
    • I had us going 10-6 and winning the AFC South. I knew with Luck back we'd be at minimum .500, and I thought by adding Nelson, Ebron, and Cain, our O would be pretty decent, and enough to take the South. We were 10-6, but didn't win the South.  I wasn't counting on our D being as good, so I guess they overachieved. Honestly I'm still not sold on our D. This year will be a much bigger test.
    • There appears to be a possibility that the Pacers acquire 31-year-old Eric Gordon, the shooting guard for the Rockets.   Houston wants Jimmy Butler but they don't have cap space to sign him. The 76ers would have to sign Jimmy and trade him to Houston. But Houston cant send the 76ers matching salaries because Philadelphia already has to sign Tobias Harris, JJ Reddick and soon Embid and Ben Simmons..   So the 76ers and Houston have to find a third team who could acquire some salary. In the theory of this trade: That team would be the Pacers who would take the final year of Eric Gordon's contract at $15 mil   Obviously, Gordon is an IU grad and Indianapolis native. He comes off the Houston bench behind Chris Paul and James Harden. 16.2 per game last year and 16.7 for his 11-year career..   Forgetting how crazy Houston's locker room would be with Paul, Harden and Butler, is there a downside to acquiring Gordon, who would start until Oladipo returns? We might have to give up next year's No.1 pick.
    • Here is a serious question, does anyone want to win the NL Central? I mean seriously  . We are winning it but just give games away like the Brewers and Cards do as well.
