Interesting that we have announced cutting Quarles, and then no one else for a while now....... wonder what we are waiting to see from other teams, if anything.....

 

If by "we" you mean the Colts, they did not make the announcement.  He tweeted it out himself.

Red Bryant, defensive end got cut by the Bills, real good against the run and great player for Seattle for a number of years. I know he hasn't played in a 3-4 but it wouldn't hurt to sign him for cheap. 31 years old still should have a couple good years left. he could give us some depth with Jones being out for the season

John Crockett was released by the Packers. I know the last thing we need is another running back, but several people were high on him coming out of college.

I really liked him, of course he has his ups and downs, was hoping Grigs would sign him as a UDFA

As was Jared Abbrederis. Another name I saw a lot of around here. Looks like they're hoping he makes it to their practice squad. Remember everyone, every team has to make these cuts and the other fan bases are going through very similar situations so be sure to take a breath and relax a little, haha.

Yes his name was floated around a lot as well. I also couldn't agree with the later part of your post enough.

No reason at all to believe that is true.

What did he to prove to us while he was here? What did he really show us? He played his position at a very avg level majority of the time. He had 3 years to show his worth and that he's getting better. He didn't do that, so he's gone. You're only gonna get so long. And this year he was getting outplayed and outshined by other players at his position on the roster so he didn't make the cut. Best of luck to him elsewhere though.

I think we should look at Red Bryant. We need a pure run stuffer. The question is if he can still play like he did with Seattle a couple years ago. Then I really hope we pick up Louis Nix. He had an injury, but I still don't get why Houston gave up on a guy with his talent. He was considered a top 10-20 pick for a while. And its not like he's played and sucked. It wouldn't hurt to pick him up. Especially where he went to ND. As for Gerrod Holliman. If somebody could teach that kid how to tackle he could be a superstar. This may sound crazy but he had the best ball skills in this years draft class among safeties.

That he was one of the very few guys on the roster that could play in a 2 gap defense. And I think him being cut, along with hughes, and considering the guys still on the roster...I don't think they're going to be doing much, if any, 2 gapping going forward.

    • Just bragging rights for the win......   Nope not Luck, player is currently on 90 man roster and was a fairly high draft pick.   I'm leaning Hot Rod making it again actually, Piniero career long is only 53 so leg strength isnt great which is Hot Rod's knock right now, also his career fg % (55% over 39 yards  compared to over 70% for Blankenship) and pat % lower as well.....not saying Eddy cant unseat him but odds dont favor it at this time. Now someone else being brought in if both struggle in preseason is another thing
    • Good point. Q IMO may be the overall best O.Lineman in the league so he deserves huge money but to your point paying the whole O.Line huge money isn't ideal.
    • I personally feel like that's a different aspect of it. These teams did well with very good or great O-line play but they didn't always spend 40% of their resources to achieve it.   For me part of the trick is getting a line that is greater than the sum of its parts, a couple of excellent players in there mixed in with cheaper complimentary parts. You can then get a unit to overachieve the resources it took to build it, its one of the few areas of the team where it is consistently done.   If other teams get their unit to play at a similar level to ours while spending less resources on it it gives them a massive advantage over the remainder of the team.
    • Could also be because you have said they are overrated multiple times
    • Cubs win 5-1. Take 2 of 3 from the Tigers. Hendricks was awesome today. 19-20 now on the season, back in 3rd place and only 3.5 games back of 1st place St. Louis in the NL Central. Luckily there are no teams running away with the division early. Cards are just 23-17 and Brewers 20-20 just a half game ahead of us. We start a 4 game set vs Washington tomorrow, hopefully we can get back to .500 once Monday's game is concluded.   Fly the Flag @HOZER
