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.

Or the RBs they were playing with

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

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....

    • Two of the three involve former COLTS....   1.   Anyone here remember PJ Walker?    The little (sub 6') QB who would show up at camp,  be our 4th string guy,  eventually get cut and go elsewhere...   Canada, or XFL or wherever.       Well...   not only was PJ Walker in the NFL this year (Carolina)  he actually played in four games.    Wait!   There's more!    He actually started one game, and, yes,  he actually won!       Here's PJ's profile page.   You can see as you scroll down.   Good for the kid.   Who doesn't like a feel good story?       https://www.panthers.com/team/players-roster/p-j-walker/logs/   2.   It would appear that the career of AQ Shipley has ended.   The former Colts center, who moved on to the Rams where he started and played well for them for a few years may be over.        Late in the season,  he suffered what sounds like a badly pinched nerve in his neck.   HC Sean McVey made it sound like he was done.   Gotta like a guy who wasn't blessed with much        talent, but made the most out of what talent he had.    Hope he enjoys a long, healthy retirement.       https://profootballtalk.nbcsports.com/2020/11/25/a-q-shipley-may-have-suffered-career-ending-injury/   3.   Frank Ragnow, the Center for the Detroit Lions is now competing for a title I'm sure he didn't want to prove he's worth.   Toughest Son a Gun in Football.   In Week 14,  Ragnow suffered       a fractured throat!    In more than 50 years of following football, I have never heard of such a thing.   But wait!   It gets better!   Ragnow didn't come out of the game.   He played through it.        The only change was having the guard call the line blocking changes.   Ragnow couldn't speak.    He missed the next two games and didn't talk that entire time, and then played the last              game of the season.    During his time off when he didn't speak,  doctors told him he needed to protect his vocal chords to make sure he could talk for the rest of his life.     The next time            fans begrudge the players,  remember Frank Ragnow.        https://www.nfl.com/news/frank-ragnow-on-throat-injury-time-missed-focus-was-on-preserving-voice-for-the-      
    • Fair point.   No quibble.       
    • I could easily be wrong about this,  but I think you're high on Nelson, Leonard and Smith.    Maybe not by a lot,  but by enough that the Colts will have more money left than you think.   ***I think Q can pick the length of his deal.   I'm guessing he'll have the following options.  4/60 (15) or 5/80 (16) or 6/102. (17) ***I think Leonard is looking at roughly   4/56 (14)  5/75. (15) ***I think Smith is looking at                    4/50 (12.5)  5/65 (13)   The keys to all three deals are....   the signing bonus and the amount guaranteed at signing --- these two are often confused, but they are not the same.     
    • I'm not saying you don't need speed and/or power. I'm just pointing out college players rely on it too often because it works in college, but then find out without technique their not as efficient.
    • OK......      I'm not speaking to Basham at all.    Have seen zero film on him.   I was only trying to say that DL's using speed and/or power in the NFL have worked since the league began.    PLayers who don't with at least one of them typically don't last long in the NFL.    The ones who can win with both have long, successful careers.   More to the point, our whole defense is built on speed.   Especially on the defensive front.   Look at our DE's.   Houston uses both speed and power.    Autry uses both as he plays DE and DT.   Turay is a speed guy.   Banogu is a speed guy.   Lewis, is a bit like Autry in that he plays both DE and DT.    He's trying to use both to win.    We're trying to find DL who win with their first step.  Get even on step 2,  and pass the OL on step 3.       Do the D-Lineman need to develop better hand moves -- absolutely.   100 percent.   That's why Ballard says young DL often need 2-3 years to figure things out.    He just noted Jerry Hughes who didn't blossom until Year 4 with Buffalo.   We gave up on him too soon.    Sorry,  don't mean to belabor the point,  I wanted to read your response before I posted what I needed to say....   Thanks...
