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

    • With AD, LeBron and keeping Kuzma it is a good start. I have to see what they put around that. Kuzma is a good player. Ingram has health problems and without Ball the Lakers have no outside nonsense with daddy Ball. He was an outside soap opera distraction. Lakers still need shooting and a PG, so we will see.  
    • - Again, you're still in the minute few (and LA fans) that believe those players were equal to AD. I commend Demps for not bending to LA/Lebrons nonsense. NO literally got 1 mid-level starter, and 2 average bench players for a top-5 player. Sorry, but you're lying to yourself if you think NO benefited any from this trade. However, yes, you were right about the trade.    - What good is Kuzma when he's watching Zion eat up his minutes? There is at least some flexibility with the #4 pick that could be traded for another veteran. They could use an upgrade at SG.   - With the way LA is being built, I'd be surprised if they even make it past the Conference Finals, let alone make it to the Finals. 
    • Even though I am excited about the young WRs and even though I didn't like Grigs...I am going to have to defend him here a bit.   With Grigs there is 5 seasons of data points...Ballard only has two (because we haven't yet see how this one plays out from the WR standpoint)...so there are going to be more of these on-year WR "misses." I don't expect Ballard will continue to sign these stopgap WR types...but like Grigs...he was definitely not immune to paying money to crappy WRs.   So I don't think it's totally fair to discredit Grigs for having a "problem" with one-year WR busts...and then toss out the two that Ballard has had in his first seasons. It's been an issue for a long time.   Also...if we judge Ballard on the whole picture...we should Grigs as well. Grigs re-signed Reggie...when many thought they should move on. He signed Avery...the last good one-year WR deal (until this year hopefully). He drafted Hilton. He drafted Moncrief...who people were just as high on as they are Campbell or Cain. He brought in Chester Rogers. He made some pretty great moves...and some pretty bad ones as well.   And while we can be confident about Ballard...when it comes to WR...it's still  wait and see.     
    • Dickerson all-time is a top 5 RB ever. I have:   Jim Brown Emmitt Smith Walter Payton Barry Sanders Eric is #5.  I would take Tony Dorsett over Faulk. 1995 turned me off from Faulk. We would've won the SB had he played in 95 and he quit - BOOO. 
    • I am not a huge LeBron fan but LA is in great shape with AD and plenty of cap space. We will know more once Free Agency is over. I told you LA would get AD, I knew I would be right on that one. I thought Kuzma would be a part of it though. LA even kept Kuzma lol. When Magic offered the deal Kuzma was a part of it but Demps was dumb and didn't do the trade. Kuzma is by far better than any 4th pick they will get. There are only 3 sure picks = Zion, Ja, and RJ.
