Daniel Jeremiah on Penny Hart

Will Penny Hart make the final 53? I doubt it. He'll be a practice squad candidate at best.

Outside of Austin Blythe, I don't recall many other instances of this happening.

Also Shipley and Francois.  Someone else mentioned Hughes.  There's more that have shown up on teams around the league, but I think all those guys are/were starters on other teams.  I recall the heated discussions about Shipley being a significant upgrade over that UDFA guy Grigson had starting at Center (I think a guy out of Fla or Fla St.) plus another terrible guy he had also brought in as the initial starter.  There was a great deal of internal chatter about him playing favorites with players who did not earn it on the field as well as serious strife with Pagano (which turned out unquestionably true) and I recall many people were so pro-Grigson that they attacked anyone who questioned his judgement and called the reports of problems with Grigson/Pagano nonsense.  Of course in hindsight it doesn't seem difficult to believe the chatter.  I quoted an insider I know who was there daily at the time and it appears everything he shared was true.  But some people just refused to think he didn't walk on water as a GM.  Fanboys aside, many of those linemen were egregiously poor and contributed to Luck's injuries.  It seemed pretty obvious to the majority of fans and media alike that he was doing a terrible job protecting Luck.  It wasn't like all those players were world beaters, but in some cases, they were WAY better than Grigson's favorites.  Shipley might have been a 7 of 10, but he was much better than the 3 of 10 he put in his place leaving Shipley on the bench for no apparent reason even though his performances were some of the highest rated in the league in the games he started and his replacement near the bottom.  I hope Pagano can regain his success as a coordinator in Chicago which seems to be more in his lane than being head coach.  But Grigson didn't do him many favors with the poor picks and FA choices he made.

    • It wouldn’t shock me if our receiving core was TY, Funchess, Campbell, Cain and Fountain though. Especially if someone steps up on punt returns.
    • Fountain couldn’t  even make the roster last season when we had no receivers though. Instead of saying working back into the lineup I could of said bringing him into the lineup slowly. I noticed today that a lot of players on other teams were announced as being on Pup today. Doesn’t look like Cain will be. He looks really good on videos he posts on Instagram.  This team is so high on him and think he is going to be a star. It would be shocking if they let him go before they see what he can do when fully healthy. Fountain would really have to show star potential.
    • This is where I think a lot of Colt fans could be disappointed - when was Cain ever IN the lineup?  He was obviously set up for more instant success than Fountain b/c of Clemson coaching and better competition (vis-a-vis that of N. Iowa).  However, Fountain has likely developed way more than Cain since he’s been in Indy.  And look up their workout numbers - Fountain is an incredible athlete.
    • All I read from that is that on two separate occasions he was frustrated. The first just after having a friend murdered, very understandable. the other after having a really poor game while hurt players scream at refs all the time so I don't hold that against him and he could have handled the media better but he wasn't even really that bad then.
    • The 2006 Bears finished 13-3 (best in the NFC), tied for 2nd in the NFL in points scored, were 3rd in points allowed, had a great two-headed rushing attack, and arguably the best defense/special teams in the league.  Oh, and they DESTROYED the Brees-led Saints 39-14 in the NFCCG...   How were the Bears a "weak" opponent?   Just because of Rex Grossman?  When the Ravens won a Super Bowl with Trent Dilfer, was that a "weak" team?  Were the Broncos "weak" when they won with a sub-par Manning?
