No because Dulin has been a stud on special teams.

I haven't seen Dulin do anything other than be a backup.  His value is in being able to return punts.  Haven't seen any spectacular plays on special teams.

I'd promote Chad Williams well before Johnson, much higher upside former early round draft pick who was a college stud and was actually the 1 wr for Grambling as Chester Rogers was his 2.

If he was better than the guys on the roster he’d be on the roster.  He’s not an unknown to the Colts they have had him for a while.  He underwhelmed in the pre-season against other teams backups and third stringers.  I wouldn’t expect him to be suddenly good vs other teams starters.

He’s made a couple of nice tackles in coverage.  It’s nice to have but with the Colts injury issues at WR it’s not something you couldn’t give up if you thought you had another starter level WR on the PS.  I don’t think they do.

I don't think any changes are coming this year (besides Funchess coming back) but Colts definitely need to draft a WR early on next year.

Hilton, Campbell and Pascal are probably the only returning WRs next season depending on how Funchess fairs.

 

Colts need to seriously look after drafting another WR early in 2020 draft which is loaded with WRs. 
 

The TE situation could be tricky as well. Both Doyle and Ebron are FAs and I doubt both are retained.

He was the one that had the heads up play to pin them on the 1 yard line that ended up in a safety.

That’s one play. Every player on the team has made one really solid play during their time here. I mean, Vinny has made a 54 yard FG but missed extra points routinely now, does that mean he is a pro bowl kicker now? Lewis has a sack yet he has been scratched most of the year now, does the one great play suggest he should be starting? Kelly was balling in preseason and was the only QB hitting guys over the top deep and had the feet to run yet he is on the practice squad still.  Dullin is speed and very very raw, he was a surprise for me to see come up first but hey....

Doyle 1-2 years ebron let go.

They should have kept Hentges.

Agreed on the WR statement.

 

Also I love me some Doyle, but he'll be 30 and he's not exactly a speedster or physical specimen.

 

2020 will definitely be a year where we'll have to address the offensive weapons on this team. I wouldn't bother with Ebron, we caught lighting with him last year, but he's too hot and cold in general.

With Ty out, do you think Marcus Johnson should be brought up from the practice squad?

With Jacoby out Chad Kelly needs to be brought up from the PS. No room on the active for Johnson to come up.

I was a huge fan of what Hentges brought to the table. I think in the proper system and useable, he will flourish.

He has been a really good gunner since he was called up.

I disagree that Pascal, Hilton, and Campbell will be the only WR's back. I'm pretty sure Fountain will make the roster. 

If DF comes back and plays well I could see them bringing him back. Him with those other three will be a good group if they can stay healthy lol. Fountain is just like Cain a big unknown.

    • Not trying to be argumentative but you simplifying this issue is not the reality of it all. Not only are there 53 players plus 10 practice squad players (90 in training camp) there are how many others around a NFL team? Doctors, trainers, coaches, assistant coaches, coordinators and whoever else. Just the sheer space need to keep social distance is impossible.  All of these people have families away from a locker room so it's not like they are going to be quarantined.  How about the mental aspect of the players? Can the players put all of this out of their thought process when their mindset has to be 100% about the game itself?  We are always reminded about distractions in the locker room and how it can have a negative effect.  IMO this goes much deeper than what can and can't be controlled.   
    • Its funny you say that.... I feel the same......   Strange times......
    • I would tend to agree   There is significant $$ moving around so I believe there will be a season of some sort.... maybe shortened.....   I think the NFL union may hold the players back from competing until there is a resolution or some protection.   We are seeing a crazy jump in new cases in Texas. (My daughter just tested positive   she is ok now)    If we are in mid August and the new cases in Covid starts to drop AND the death rates are dropping we may see a season.....   If not..... we may see a start in Oct......   Who knows....    
    • There is a big difference. After they all get initially tested the chances of it spreading among players is low. With the amount of times they will be tested and the fact none are going to even get in the facility with even a slight cough until they are tested the chances of it spreading is pretty small. Yes initially there will be some. I don’t even believe there are all these asystematic  cases. I think there are a lot of false positives. Which is why the nfl has a different protocol for them.
