Fair enough.

 

But I think you are hoping against hope.  I see him out there on the field and immediately start saying Hail Mary's for the QB's health.

Friendly Reminder from TigerTown  

   Before we condemn CG because of his injury history remember that he was in Buffalo 

 

Methinks you are now officially grasping at straws to hold onto a poorly conceived point.

I don't mind him being on the roster and getting a chance to compete for a starting spot. What I mind is us going into the season thinking that he will suddenly switch it on and relying on him to be a competent starting tackle for us without even trying to address the position. We cannot afford to do that. Either get a more proven commodity through trade of FA or a higher end prospect(Connor Williams if he falls to the second) and let them compete. If by some miracle Clark prevails, I'm good with that. I care that we have a good tackle to protect Luck, I don't care if it's Clark or Haeg or whoever we acquire this off-season, as long as they get the job done.

He was a known project and Grigson took the risk.  Ballard has nothing to do with it and needs to worry about getting the best player in the lineup.  Clark has shown he is not good at RT.  He will get a shot at OG and RT in camp but if he is cut, it is because he is bad.

Last word on Mewhort was that he was still contemplating retirement.  His knees are going to get any better.

I think if Mewhort was  retiring he would have  announced it  officially by now!

Maybe, maybe not.  Joe Thomas is also reportedly still trying to decide.  Plus, it's not uncommon for veterans dealing with injuries to wait and see what their market is before deciding to retire.

If we could land Williams or Guice at the top of the 2nd I'd be completely out of my mind.  Williams could play RT or G... man the dreams.

    • I agree. Dak is a symptom of a much bigger problem in the NFL and football in general. Mediocre QB's get overpaid and subsequently hamper their team's ability to build a winning team in the long-term. But if we go deeper into high school's and colleges, we see that the game is now full of pass-heavy offenses. The problem, is that the QB's in these schools aren't well-developed and play in simplified systems that inflate their stats but don't prepare them to be able to play effectively at the pro level. Some NFL teams clearly don't understand this and invest large sums of capital into these QB's that should never get paid the amount of money they are getting.    The only silver lining could be that the salary cap will continue to increase each year but I'd be interested to see if that is keeping up with the pace of QB salary rate increases as well.
    • I think we will see 2-3 more jet sweeps per game...... Campbell will see some big runs.... I hope   We also need to use the new, bigger RB to soften up the defense a bit, and maybe be used to grind out the clock in the 4th qtr.   I also think that some of the 3rd and short distance downs will now get a run vs a pass.   All these things collectively, should help implement a more balanced offense... and tip it over to a run first team    
    • If we can swing a deal that works I'm down with the acquisition certainly. If Autry gets hurt that takes a decent amount of steam from the pass rush. Would be very cool to have Autry and Mccoy.
    • In the games the Colts won last year (not including the playoff game), Andrew threw 31, 23, 31, 29, 29, 37, 41, 27, 47 and 35 times which comes out to an average of 33 passes a game so you're pretty much right on with your assessment.
    • I’m no expert by any means on Oline technique, so I invite anyone to tell me if I’m on the right tracks with my concern.   So with the Mudd technique, if the T ‘misses’ (in other words, the Dlineman slips the block) wouldn’t they be able to get to the QB quicker?   Normally, the T is backpedaling, keeping the attacker in front of him.  The D may try to slip or bullrush but the T can keep moving backwards to move his man to the side or past the QB.  If the Mudd T is moving forward and the D slips him, can he recover?
