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.

    • Well....   Fitzpatrick appears to be the starter,  so, yes,  Miami would seem to be tanking....   And Keenan is no longer the starter in Denver.    Joe Flacco is with Keenan staying as the back-up.   Could Miami have some interest?     Sure.   But what would they offer?    My guess is not as much as some might think.....  
    • I think the odds are low. Seems like most of the teams in a QB need will either draft one or tank for Tua/Herbert/Fromm(Miami). There is an outside shot, but I wouldn't call it likely by any stretch of the imagination. 
    • You'd argue with mud puddle.   On the black out policy.... the NFL suspended the black out policy in 2015. Even when it was in place, you only had to sell out 85%   And... if you don't understand the correlation between attendance, ticket demand, and overall revenue, then you have other issues you may need to get checked out.   Season ticket renewals declined in the 16, 17, and 18 seasons (along with attendance). That was bad no matter how you spin it. Pump all the sunshine you want, but it was bad. The Colts even upped their food and beverage credits to sell tickets. They didn't pick up till we went on the second half winning streak last year.   Here's an article on the turnaround, but talks about the declines in previous years.   https://www.indystar.com/story/sports/nfl/colts/2019/01/17/indianapolis-colts-season-ticket-sales-expected-to-increase-in-2019/2591196002/
    • In terms of grading, I'll use NFL.com's draft ratings. Funchess was a 5.64 during the 2016 draft (6.0 is assumed a "Starter"). Rogers wasn't even rated or included in most big boards at all (top 300 or 400).    Rogers was an undrafted free agent, so saying someone ranks under Rogers is a bit of a head scratcher. There are 16 WRs rated higher than Funchess's 5.64 in this year's draft. Boykin is one of them. One advantage to taking one of those 16, or even one a bit lower, is that you're not paying them 10M or more per year for the next XX years. Isabella for instance is rated a little below 5.64, but is RW and PFF's top rated WR. I'd have zero problem whatsoever taking him at 59. And I'd have zero problem with several of the WRs at 34. Chances are that a 6.0 WR will be available at 26 is pretty much a given, and at 34, pretty likely as well.   You can disagree with the ratings, but there will be plenty of solid WRs throughout the 2nd, and possibly into the 3rd. Short on T1 talent, but plenty of good T2 guys.
    • Attendance and ticket sales are two different things. When is the last time the Colts were blacked out?
