Colts continue to work out players

Recommended Posts

This doesn't mean anything. Wilkins and Ware are injured, and someone that's not Mack or Hines needs to play the majority of snaps on Thursday.

It’s just in case we have a rash of injuries they have a backup plan and a list of players they can call.

But why?
 

 

I’m curious as well. All the young talent at WR plus vets like Hilton and Funchess.

It’s just kicking the tires in case a injury happens. Nothing more.

This is why ballard is great. He leaves no stone unturned and plans in case a rash of injuries happen.

Hmm, that's interesting. The WR depth is good and I'd rather play the young guys. Maybe a camp body?

Well if Funchess goes down and you need another big body???  Just guessing

It's just that Marshall has not looked good at all the past couple years. Hopefully injuries won't decimate us that badly.

It doesn’t hurt to workout players and have a list ready in case of injuries. I doubt they sign him to anything and bring him into camp.

This management is going to see if anyone will make this team better, if that means bringing in a vet and trying them out to see if they can help make the Colts better then they will.

I understand bringing guys in. I usually never comment on these kinds of threads because I'm almost always unsurprised by whoever we worked out.

Was just caught off guard by the mention of Brandon Marshall because I thought he was pretty much done. But by all means, if he impresses Ballard/Reich and we end up bringing him on due to injuries, so be it.

I would say that a lot of our cuts and practice squad players will

be picked up by other teams this year, so Ballard will have to be

very diligent on finding quality players when the season begins.

That actually makes a lot of sense. Fountain was a player who interviewed/drew interest from a lot of teams. Pascal, Rogers, even guys like Ishmael or Hart, could be plucked by other teams if we tried to put them on the PS too.

All four of these guys are worthy of a roster spot on some team's 53

man roster, not to mention maybe a few other quality players the 

Colts will cut before the first coin is tossed.

Yep, If someone goes down and none of these players who will be cut soon will be available, Ballard will have to find/sign someone else. Hence, he should leave no stone unturned.

Marshall is simply due diligence. IMO, he'll fall into a plan D or more scenario. I think a lot of things would have to happen for us to grab him. Cain would have to take a step back, another X (likely Funch) would have to be injured, our PS would have to be decimated by other teams cherry picking, etc.. 

 

I'm glad we're turning over every stone, but I doubt there's anything to see here.

Perhaps. But you still have Ebron and Cain. Last year we rolled out with even less depth at WR. It was Hilton, Grant, Pascall, and Rodgers before injuries. They were comfortable rolling with that at the start of the season. Seems weird to all of a sudden work out a veteran WR when there’s more receiver talent this year than last.

    • If Hoyer is on the field, it's pretty much already over. I don't think Hoyer can teach Brisset anything we would want him to learn.   Did they try to get a 7th? I didn't see that.
    • Archie Manning had a terrible W/L % too    You can’t win games with inferior pieces around you
    • I'll trust CB and FR over the Kelly fan club.   They couldn't even get a 7th for him
    • By showing me the stats you would actually be proving me right.  Because despite Peyton’s great stats we still didn’t win.  So like I said great stats don’t guarantee Super Bowls.  And the reason I call Peyton’s playoff performances underwhelming is because of the statistical marvel he showed us he was capable of being.  Just couldn’t get over the hump or out the gate more often than not in the playoffs.    Now it wasn’t all his fault but let’s not make excuses either. How many home field playoff openers did we lose under Peyton?  Here is our point totals in playoff losses under Peyton starting with his 2nd season:  16 points, 17 points, 0 points, 14 points, 3 points, 18 points, 24 points, 17 points, & 16 points.   So the greatest statistical QB of all time (according to me anyway) could only reach 20 points once in these games that ended our season & it wasn’t on him?     Not fully but he deserves a large large portion of the blame because could roll out the bed and score 20 points 90% of the time.  But I’m not trying to bash Peyton.  I’m just saying stats aren’t everything. We’ve tried the Peyton approach. Get the Super QB & build around him.  We had good statistical success but probably didn’t reach our potential.   I’d like to try the Patriots approach now.  Build a great team and let the QB grow with the team.  We don’t need it to be all about the QB (yet).  I’m sure those games are coming though.  We’ll see if JB has the chops to be clutch in crucial moments. If not, we’ll get somebody in here who does. But even then I hope it’s not all about them either but still more team focused.     And I hope CK clears waivers and makes it onto the practice squad.  He needs to stay here and learn & master our system.  Then come back next year and secure the no. 2 spot or even challenge JB for his job.  He doesn’t need to go try to learn some new system & be behind all of the guys already there & maybe struggle if given a rushed opportunity. Then he may not get another chance.
