So looking closer at Blank and McLaughlin.

 

Blank converted 81.8% of FGs last year at Georgia

 

McL converted 78% of his kicks with  3 different teams last year.

 

If Im not mistaken arent the hash marks spread out further in college making FGs a little tougher?

No way.  That dude had me send him 10k to free him from a Nigerian Prison back in the early 2000's and his father, the King of The ofogono tribe, never repaide tenfold ...  I don't trust him any longe

https://www.nfl.com/news/player-cuts-tracker-nfl-teams-finalize-53-man-rosters-for-2020-season   Figured they’ll start rolling in soon

Hence why I said it would be a surprise cut...  I didn't say I think they will, I said that I think the surprise cut, if any, would be Jacoby.   That said, if the Colts FO is making choices

I do think it played a factor.  Colts have said they look at things like that.  How much of a factor?  Don’t know.  My guess is that it was more of a factor in him being signed in the first place than making the final roster.

More than likely

Not for a kicker. It's a nice to have, but you keep the best at kicking.

That’s why I said I think it was factor in him being signed in the first place not so much making the final roster and clearly it’s not nearly as important as kicking skill.  Still when you have a close battle like this things like that do come into play.  Again not saying he made the roster because of that but I don’t think it was ignored either.

I think we did, with all the information we were supplied with. Blank seemed to outperform Chase if even by a small margin.

He made all of his XPs too, which is a big improvement over last year lol

We all know how much they loved AV as a leader on the team. So if everything was even yes him being a captain might of been the deciding factor.

Everything even, absolutely. 

Let's not compare Hot Rod to AV just yet. He's a rook, and needs to sing songs, and fetch food for the vets :-)

https://jugssports.com/blog/six-key-differences-between-college-and-nfl-football-that-we-tend-to-forget-about/#:~:text=In the NFL%2C each hash,9” from the closest sideline.&text=In college%2C the hash marks,hash marks 40 feet apart.

 

In the NFL, each hash mark is 70’ 9” from the closest sideline. That makes the two rows of hash marks 18’ 6” apart.

In college, the hash marks are closer to the sidelines. The hash marks are 60 feet from the nearest sideline, making the two rows of hash marks 40 feet apart.

 

College hash marks are 21'6" wider making certain FG much harder than NFL.

College hash marks are at the spot of NFL HM from the 40s to 70s

I never compared them. Just noting how much they talked about AV leadership.

I don't think this was to big a shocker, they had a good battle. Could of went either way.

 

I was definitely hoping Blank would pull ot out.

From what I read, McLoughlin was winning the competition.  Maybe not by a lot, but had an edge.   That’s why I’m surprised.

 

But I trust this front office and coaching staff to make the right call.   I may be surprised, but I’m not saying the Colts are wrong.

Important to remember that was reporters saying chase was winning the competition.  Doesn’t mean that’s how Ballard saw it.

That was the word early, I think that last scrimmage is what put Blank over the top. He outperformed Chase that day.

 

It could of went either way, like you I trust in there decision, they clearly had mor e info than we did.

Yep

1972

Flash forward to 1972. In that year, the NFL moved hash marks to their present-day location: 70 feet, 9 inches (about 23.5 yards) from the sidelines, exactly in line with the goal posts. The league wanted to boost offenses by widening the short side of the field, where defenses used the sideline as an extra defender.

One reason I rarely rely on Sports Reporters

I will say most said it’s close and if I had to say...  in other words they weren’t really sure.  Not like they were saying it’s chases job hands down not even close.

I am surprised that the Pitts cut came so late

Not sure they are doing them in any order per se. I'm sure there's some chess being played while teams watch other teams cuts. WR and DB were the areas I thought the Colts would wait the longest, and have the toughest decisions.

    • Haha.   I know what it means.    I worded it poorly.    What I meant was,   what was it he said that was disingenuous. 
    • I thought this guy suggesting the Colts keep Malik Hooker was the downfall of this video. Not even the dumbest GM in the NFL would trade their first round pick for Carson Wentz and that absurd contract he has tied to him. How could you label this as a perfect off-season?   What is Carson Wentz's salary cap hit Wentz is costing the Eagles $18.656 million against the cap for 2020. His dead money was set at $77.877 million.  His cap number jumps up to $34.673 million in 2021. It comes down to $31.274 million in 2022, and hits a peak of $36.273 million in 2023. In 2024, the final year of the contract, the cap hit of $32 million will match his average annual salary. Wentz is actually making only $1.383 million in base salary this season. That number hits a high of $22 million when he turns 30, appropriately in 2022. When the Eagles' structured Wentz's deal, in relation to the extensions for other highly drafted quarterbacks, it ended up being team-friendly. The Eagles had to work it up that way given Wentz's history of injury. In the end, however, he didn't sacrifice too much overall given the exponential explosion at the top of the QB market since. When can the Eagles get out of Carson Wentz's contract? The Eagles, if they don't think about trading Wentz before June 1 in 2021 — the only scenario in which they see any kind of cap relief for the move — are likely locked into Wentz for one more season. Given their cap situation, releasing Wentz is financially impossible. That move would cost the Eagles $59 mllion in dead money with a cap hit of $24.5 million. Trading him to someone would cause them to eat $33.8 million in dead money but at least get a mild cap relief of about $853,000. The trick there will be finding a partner willing to take on his adjusted lesser contract, which would be essentially for four years at $98.4 million
    • I'm not even commenting on this meaningless thread.
    • Wow, 5 pages of rants and arguments.  This is an off season comedy. 
    • It's crazy, now he's at the Buccaneers I am appreciating TB more. Still hate the Patriots though.
