Pre-Season Week 1 53 Projection

Recommended Posts

Based off what I saw against the Bills last night.  

 

Offense (24)

QB: Luck, Brissett 
RB: Mack, Hines, Wilkins, Williams
WR: Hilton, Funchess, Campbell, Cain, Fountain, Rogers 
TE; Doyle, Ebron, Alie-Cox 
OL: Castonzo, Nelson, Kelly, Glowinski, Smith, Haeg, Boehm, Andrews, Barton

Defense (26)
DE: Sheard, Muhammed, Turay, Phillips 

DT: Autry, Hunt, Lewis, Stewart, Ward
OLB: Leonard, Banogu,  Adams, 

MLB: Walker, Okereke, Speed 
CB: Desir, Moore, Wilson, Ya-Sin, Tell, Milton 
S: Hooker, Geathers, Willis, Farley, Odum

 

Special Teams (3)
K: Vinatieri 

P: Sanchez 

LS: Rhodes 

 

Practice Squad (10)

RB D'Onta Foreman  

TE Hale Hentges 

T Antonio Garcia 

DE Gerri Green 

LB Skai Moore 

WR Penny Hart 

RB Aca'Cedric Ware 

WR Krishawn Hogan 

K Cole Hedlund 

DT Sterling Shippy 

 

Reserve/Suspended 

QB Chad Kelly 

 

Notes: 

- I liked what I saw from Chad Kelly, but I don't know if they would keep 3 QBs on the active roster.  He's suspended the first two games of the season so they will have to make that decision by Week 3.  I do think he deserves a spot on the Practice Squad.  

- I need to see some actual game play from Foreman before I put him on the 53. 

- Nate Hairston has an uphill battle to make this team.  I think they would favor Tell for his athleticism and Milton for his special teams ability.   

- Carroll Phillips played really well yesterday.  I can see him making the team if he keeps up his level of play.  

- Fountain impressed me yesterday and so far has earned a spot on the 53.  I think Rogers stays for now but if Cain and Fountain are producing, Rogers could be cut if they want to only keep 5 WRs.  

- The backup offensive lineman did not impress me.  Maybe Ballard will get a waiver-wire pickup to improve the reserve O-Line.  

- I thought Speed played a good game and I think he can contribute on defense this year

I must be losing it, since I forgot Houston.  Milton does not make the 53 then with Houston there.

You forgot Houston lol and for some odd reason I feel like they only carry 5 WR not 6 I think it’s going to be between fountain and Cain who have both been having good camps. I think they carry one less OL because of some of those guys flexibility to play multiple positions if needed and one more TE, I foresee Hentges making the final 53.

    • I agree with most of your post, not bashing JB at all, like you I have all the respect in the world for him.  He was put into a hard position, stepping in when Luck called it quits, but after watching him on game day, and reviewing the tapes of the games other forum members have posted in here, it seems obvious he has not improved much, if not at all.
    • Yeah, you’re right in your original post that there were people questioning whether or not he’d make the roster though. Especially with Fountain ballin out in TC. Man, that injury was even more unfortunate looking back. I really hope he can carve a role out for himself here.
    • I get your point, I am sure Ballard agree's. JB even by my eye ball test doesn't suck. We are just used to Peyton and Luck. Ballard may draft a QB and to be honest I would be happy if he did but not in round 1. He may get a gem in round 2 or 3 or so.
    • I don't think either of us can say exactly how Ballard does, or does not, look at things. We know some basics though. We know both he and FR are stats guys, and Ballard has grown the analytics team since coming to Indy. We know one of Ballards core responsibilities is build a team that not only wins, but also one that fills seats and generates revenue. We also know he loves leadership and the "right guys".   I think we both agree that Ballard is a very smart guy. He knows everything about JB. He knows his flaws from college, he knows every stat that has been laid out by all of us here, plus probably a bunch more. He knows exactly what last year's team and players did, and the difference in their performance to date this year.   I agree that the FO didn't get to evaluate JB under perfect/ideal situations, but frankly that never happens. He's not going to give pure grace for injuries, and disregard that JB still has a big problem with missing wide open guys regardless of who they are. He sees it all, and a lot more. And I'm sure he knows sometimes you have to make a call without ideal input/evaluation.    I do think that Ballard will do what ever he does, and we'll likely never know all the past, current, and future variables he may weigh. I just know where I'd put my money.
    • I truly believe the front office and Reich do want him to succeed. They would love a guy with is character and leadership to pilot this franchise for the next 10+ years. Sadly, I think he has reached his ceiling and  I think the Colts org privately know it as well.
