Colts work out Matt Elam

Recommended Posts

Don’t think Geathers is hurt. He had a post last night on IG talking about being ready and proving the haters wrong. It’s probably just the colts looking at guys in case of a injury down the road.

safety is one of the thinnest positions on the team now.  i noticed geathers has never started 16 games in a season

Not sure I agree with that. We have Geathers and Hooker, farley is coming back, we added Kindred from the browns that has starting experience, Odum played well minus the titans game, and we draft Khari Willis.

It’s not that thin. I think we have some quality depth.  Odum and Mcfarly can hold their own. Plus don’t forget we went and got Kindred who has been a good starter in the league. Then we also just got Willis in the draft. From all accounts Willis could start if we needed him.

And I think Quincy Wilson could play S if needed (Ballard said this multiple times around draft time that Q. Wilson is so valuable because he can play any position in the secondary).  And another draft pick, Tell III was a S in college -- the plan for him is to move him to outside CB, but imagine (if he makes the team, which I think he will) he can play S in a pinch.

Yes he could. That is what the colts love about him is his versatility. Even Kenny Moore played some safety in the KC game when we had hooker and Mitchell hurt. We have a lot of DB that can play both positions.

Geathers is very good when healthy.  Remember what our secondary looked like in 06 when we won the SB. It was sanders and a bunch of no name young guys.

Moore played A LOT of FS at Valdosta State.

Marlin Jackson was a 1st round pick. Kelvin Hayden was a second round pick. A. Bethea was a no-name late round pick but is still playing great.

They were still super young with hardly no nfl experience.

With the versatility of our corners we very well may keep extra ones and less safeties.

Why don't we work out Tre Boston, at least he was a pro bowler at one time..

I don’t know if “very good” is how I’d describe Geathers. He’s shown flashes but I don’t think I’ve seen even a game since his rookie season where I thought he played very good. He’s solid. Can tackle in space but his coverage skills are underwhelming. Solid player. Maybe this year he’ll make that leap though. We’ll see

Seriously? You can’t name any of the other DBs on that team?

Of course I can lol. My point was they were rookies or very young. Our secondary was very inexperienced.

Matt Elam...wth? This dude was a massive bust and has been out of the league since 2016.

 

He was also arrested with a few dozen Oxys. 

 

Tell me again about how Ballard only goes after a certain “quality” of player.

    • Brissett's already better than he was in 2017.  2017 Brissett doesn't deliver in the red zone the way this year's version does.   He's learning.  It'll take awhile before he's got his game fully under control but he is learning.
    • We are indeed young.  That said, the team has looked competitive so far.  It's a long shot, but if we avoid making major mistakes, we could be contenders this year.  I'm certainly not going to concede anything without a fight, that's for darn sure.
    • Gee, it couldn't be more clear. We have as good a run blocking line as there is.  Your coach says we are going to Run the Damn Ball. Simple.   Think Seahawks and you will get it.   NOTHING is happening in just a few weeks. We are young.
    • As a colts fan from up north, Im not really familiar with the colts media, can y'all recommend some good reporters to follow on twitter for team news ?
    • I agree I'd like to get Campbell more involved, it's going to come down to Brissett establishing a comfort level with him.  Right now that's the big thing holding the team back, is that Brissett is still getting comfortable with the team's receiving corps.    One of the reasons TY is getting so many balls thrown his way is because TY is one of the holdovers from Brissett's run in 17 and there's some residual comfort factor there.   I think that'll work itself out given time. Brissett's just gonna get comfortable with some of his younger options.   That said, if we're in the playoff hunt at the deadline I do think Ballard is going to make a move for a veteran target.  We don't have a lot of physicality in our receiver corps, especially without Funchess.  With a non-elite QB I see that as a need that will have to be addressed.
