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.

    • I think the FO and coaching staff has developed some sophisticated (?) theories about what combinations of talents, skills, personalities - and probably a host of other properties - that are needed to come together in a competitive football team. We will never know what those theories are, and they may not be valid theories. Time will tell.   Whatever those theories are, they've got to be better than just using gut feelings or guessing (see Oakland Raiders, for example). Gruden wasn't "into" analytics. So if a particular player isn't brought in, there's probably a good reason why. We'll never know that, either.
    • Don't know how I feel about being happy that our opponent's players are potentially out. Seems weak.
    • I think you have nailed what is going to happen   DT on 3rd down is perfect for the guy...... We need DE for downs 1 and 2 not named Turray   He was run over on run plays....... He is a perfect dedicated PASS rusher though and he could get 8-10 sacks in that role
    • I think we’d brought in Ajayi if we were going too by now. I think that notion has long sailed away though
    • Anyone think this guy could make the roster as Moore’s backup instead of Hairston. He has has a pretty good camp. I have not paid attention how he does in games. It seems in camp he has been very physical.
