Not really. They have Mcnown to backup Wentz. Sudfield will be back by the end of Sept.

they like Sudfield.

Kessler was behind him and McCown IIRC and maybe another guy.

They talked McCown out of retirement, he only came out to be the backup if imagine, so they are pretty good there, especially once Sudfeld is healthy, which shouldn't be much longer, a month I think.

McCown was brought out of retirement because Kessler had to leave game 2 with a concussion

Ummmmm   the final score was Colts 13 Bengals 6.... wouldn’t that mean the Colts won and thus are not winless in the preseason(not that it matters) Or am I seeing things?

McCown was brought back more because Sudfield went down. Sudfield was #2 on depth chart for the first preseason game, and McCown coming back sealed Kessler's fate. Kessler was more in competition with Thorson prior to McCown returning.

Why does this Taylor H Kid not have to clear waivers but Kessler does? Can someone explain that to me?

tyler heinicke is a vested veteran with 4 years in the league.  Kesler only has 3

McCown was not brought in until after the Kessler injury

  I watched the 1st 2 Eagles games and saw NS, CK, and CT but not JM

 

    I believe the plan was to play CK or CT as the #2 after the Sudfeld injury

Does Walker have any eligible PS time remaining?

 

God I hope we’ve seen the last of this prospect who has zero upside.

Green IMO has no chance at all. He'll make it to the PS if the Colts want him. 

 

Funny how Green was the one draft pick that no one seemed to think was worthy of taking in round 6. A few on this board like him but most didn't and the "pundits" also didn't like the pick. No big deal that we probably blew a 6th round pick ... just saying.

Now watch him hit our PS and light it up once he gets his switch flipped. Could end up flaming out but it’s a risk CB felt he wanted to try.

I think we'll bring 4TE-s, and Hentges will clear the waivers so he can go to PS. We'll see soon.

Hentges will not clear wavers and I almost bet that Travis is being shopped tonight and if need be, he is the cut not Hentges.

I've been hoping that we might keep Hentges and get a good backup O-lineman for Travis, rather than just lose him in the cuts.

I doubt we can keep them all.

I think Hentges will be the 4th. TE,  I think Travis is going to be traded.   We'll see.

Agreed and the drop-off at OT from the 1's to the 2's is a cliff right now.

Yeah, count me in as a Hentges supporter over Travis. I think when it comes to your 4th TE you should go with the better all around option and that's definitely Hentges.

 

Remember how many times in the beginning of last season (before Doyle went down) it seemed like they were reluctant to put Ebron in? There were quite a few games where we really didn't even see much of him until the 2nd half, specifically because of his blocking woes.

Looking like our OL depth is gonna be Haeg, Andrews, Eldrenkamp, and Barton. Maybe we pick somebody else up on waivers though.

Honetsly, considering just how bad the state of OL talent/depth is around the league, I'm acutally fine with Haeg/Andrews/Eldrenkamp as backups. Barton's meh, but he is a rookie, so hopefully he improves.

I think you do have to remember your not going to be playing five backups on the oline in the regular season. If one guy gets injured we can probably be ok.  Rick. Venturi today he might think of putting Braden Smith or at LT if AC gets hurt and putting Haeg at RT.

Barton was so bad.

Ok

  Smith stays at RT and Haeg plays LT

I was only surprised about Boehm until I read that the coaches have liked Andrews/Eldrenkam more and that Boehm was essentially fighting for his spot from early on.

I liked what I saw from Boehm last year too but maybe Strausser/Mudd like Eldrenkamp as a better fit.

Maybe he's a more promising project.
