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?

Andrews taking the backup C didn’t help EB


Yup. I actually liked our pass blocking last night as well. Andrews and Eldrenkamp held up pretty well. The run blocking, not so great, but hopefully that's partly because preseason play calling.

Ok

  Smith stays at RT and Haeg plays LT

I’m not about to say Haeg is a good tackle, but from my view he’s played his best, filling in at LT for AC.  Plus, he played LT for NDSU. Smith played Guard (2nd best in college, only to Nelson) for Auburn.  Leave him at RT and let him grow, instead of shifting him around.  I still don’t see Clark as ACs backup....

I kinda think our RB's have done the best they can with the blocking they've gotten in PS. Most times they've been met in the backfield and guys like Ware/Williams have had to really fight for yards.

It was more of a statement about What Venturi said than anything else

Hah yeah, what can we do though. The whole league is struggling to find solid OL. I figure that has to do with how good these DL/LBers are getting, but yeah.

I'm curious and I hope you good people can help me understand better about Kelly.

 

Do we have to start with him on the 53 man and then he goes on the suspended list, which creates a spot for two weeks?

 

Or can we cut/waive him and he simply serves out his suspension at home and then we re-sign him?

He has to be with the team so he will make the 53 and then after the 4 pm Deadline he will be moved to the Reserve list for the suspension

It's my understanding he has to be on an active roster in order to serve his suspension.

Thank you!

 

So between that suspension, Sheard's injury and the Wilkens/Williams injuries they have to play some serious roster jenga in the next two days.....

 

Tough spot to be in even before acknowledging the depth of the roster in a few places that will make cuts difficult!

As @Chloe6124 said he won’t count against the 53 once his suspension starts that solves part of the problem

I understand that, however, that means they have to have somebody prepared to wait for that deadline to pass to sign them - while other teams may want the same guy. Just saying those are tough waters to row through! :)

No. They will have to cut someone when he comes back. That could be the backup QB that comes in those 2 games or someone else. He doesn’t have to make the 53. He goes on the suspension list when the roster is cut down to 53.

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

The point is, Sudfeld has been the planned #2 since the beginning of the preseason. Had Sudfeld not went down, JM would not have been brought in. It took 2 back ups going down for that to happen. CK was not competing with Sudfeld for the #2 position before Sudfeld went down. He was a distant 3rd at most competing with Thorson. Thorson was actually ahead of CK all spring.

 

Here's the preseason week 1 depth chart.

Here's a snippet from the depth chart comments

THOUGHTS

• Kessler is ahead of Thorson as the No. 3 quarterback. Thorson was taking all the third string reps in the spring but the rookie’s struggles have caused the coaching staff to split third team reps between Thorson and Kessler. As I’ve previously said, I don’t really see Thorson playing at all this year. Even if the team keeps Thorson on the roster, I see the Eagles re-signing Kessler to be Sudfeld’s backup if something happened to Wentz.

Simple question.... would CK have been brought in if Sudfeld never went down?

 

They basically say he'd be "re-signed" if something happened to Wenzt to back up Sudfeld.

 

Also, the original comment and reply was

Quote

 

You - What is worrisome is that the Eagles are QB needy

they like Sudfield.

 

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

 

 

You're twisting and turning, so let's go back to the original exchange above.... In simple terms, #1 they do like Sudfeld as Wentz's back up (always have this year), and #2 CK was behind every QB not named Thorson, and he was actually behind even Thorson leading up to preseason. So not really QB needy once they brought back CM. CK became very expendable.

It is Josh McCown they signed

    Maybe this is not the definition on  East Street but in TigerTown any team that needs to bring a 40 year old QB out of retirement because of multiple QB injuries is QB needy

     Now since this is a Colts Cut thread in a Colts take another further discussion of the Eagles and/or 30 other teams to the NFL general thread

    (You talking about LeRaven?)

Yes.  He's got some kind of Voo Doo hex on them I guess because he was getting his tail whipped the whole preseason. Waiting on him to take it to the next level and it's not coming.

East Street is about 8 blocks east of Lucas Oil Stadium. Less than mile. :-)

Yes Coach D is in Miami

That makes sense for the trade. Old coach says look what I did for him last year and what the colts scheme/coaches have changed him to this year. Trade for him and I can gain that positive back for you. We come out ahead of we’ve gained a 4-5th rd pick in the exchange.

Hentges will make it to the PS...no worries.

 

No worries? I don’t think so. If he hits the market, he will most definitely have several suitors. What part of his game didn’t have success this preseason? He was the star pretty much of the preseason rookies. I’m not sure anyone really flashed and was as steady the entire preseason as was Hentges, maybe Speed equaled his steady production. I can see a cut/trade of Travis or even hardball tactics by cutting a fringe Ol guy maybe or RB even, keep all 5 TE’s (extreme) and forcing a trade from some TE starved team after the season starts. Hentges though is here on the 53, trust that.

and since HH is not a vested veteran he wouldn’t really get to choose

As we head into the 4pm deadline today I wonder if there will still be a trade made today? 

 

Player for draft pick or even player for player swap?

 

Candidates in my mind:

 

Carroll Phillips - has value as an edge rusher in both a 4-3 and a 3-4

 

Ross Travis - has value as a pass catcher in a league that covets mismatch TE's

 

Krishawn Hogan - has value as a big bodied, move the chains, red zone type receiver

 

Wish list:

Oline

Defensive tackle

Either a RB/WR that can return both punts and kickoffs

I like our defensive tackles. Hunt, Autry, Stewert, Ward, and Lewis.

I keep beating the drum for another DT is so they put Lewis back at his natural DE position, especially in light of Sheards knee injury.

 

I do like what we have as well, would love another 300 pounder to throw in for short yardage and goal line defense....

    • IMO the point where you had to have that conversation was last year. And it's now too... and it will be the point until long-term QB is addressed. Just... the moment you don't have a long-term QB is the moment you should start looking for one and not stop until you do have one. Now that doesn't mean that there shouldn't be some room for executive decisions and that's why I have not criticized Ballard for not taking a QB high last year.  Agreed. Again... I give some leeway to Ballard about his QB decisions, he likes whoever he likes and I would rather him draft any other position player that he likes, rather than a QB he doesn't like. But, with every passing FA/trade/draft window, the QB question will continue to become bigger and bigger. If we don't get our long-term QB this off-season it will be 3 years and drafts since Luck's retirement that he will be have the chance to address it. This is not ideal. We are threading water in the meantime. At some point unwillingness to take a shot over a long period of time becomes indecision and inability rather than patience. 
    • Agreed....   at some point.    Where there will be wide disagreement is...   when the point is?    We have a prominent poster who complained back in late November-early December that Ballard had yet to address fixing the long-term QB situation.   And he was exasperated over that.   I noted that Luck had only been retired for roughly 15 months and Ballard has had exactly one free agent window and one draft. That’s it.   I’m re-telling this story not to give that poster a hard time, but simply to say to others here, just be patient.  Hasn’t Ballard earned a high level of trust here?   I think so.   I trust that when Ballard finds a QB he likes, he’ll pull the trigger. 
    • Yeah it is expensive and I'm generally against trading up in the draft, and I'm much more a fan of trading down, but as I've said before there is one exception for that rule. It's the QB. Like with many things QBs tilt the conversation on its head. Just the value if you hit is SO BIG, that you have to do it if you get the chance(and you love the QB sitting there of course). There is practically no bad trade value if you trade up for a QB and he hits.    Also, about the hit rates of QBs. my opinion is that it's not just about the QB and his talent/drive/determination/work ethic. The environment, teammates, coaching, etc. play a big role in whether they succeed or fail. There are very few Andrew Lucks who will succeed no matter what garbage you throw at them(and he was thrown into one of the biggest piles of garbage in the league when it comes to GM-coach combo + the talent around him). For most QBs, even highly drafted, their talent needs to be guided and nurtured in the right direction. And in this line of thoughts - I think some of those QBs could have been successful in another environment and/or with a bit more luck(Darnold/Wentz), while others were probably doomed from the start because of their own failings(Rosen, Trubisky). And here is where I think we actually have somewhat of an advantage. I like our GM and our FO. I like our coach generally(even if I have some playcalling beefs with him). I like our roster and the foundations of our OLine. I think this situation gives better than average chance to a young QB to succeed. It's still no guarantee, but again... at some point you will have to make a move of some sort. We cannot keep rethreading the Rivers' of the world.  At some point Ballard will have to trust his evaluation of a QB he loves and just do what it takes to get him. 
    • Sorry, but no, our window is not closing.   Almost all of Ballard's top players are still on their rookie contracts.   This team is EARLY in it's window.    There is still great opportunity for the Colts.   Your viewpoint is a fan's viewpoint.    It is not the view of how an NFL front office person thinks.   There is still time.   Patience can be your friend.
