Doyle is Out (9/20)


Recommended Posts

Doyle is an availability issue. Hip, then other issues and now the ankle. I think Jack is closing down and I don't think Mo is the answer. When they went to Trey in the offseason, I think the coaches made their decision to give Jack a back up role. I think Jack felt it and is now just trying to coast to the end of the season.

Paying Doyle was a mistake.

He had a hip issue which happens, and a lacerated kidney in which he was in a hospital for. Last year he played all 16. He doesnt have an avaliablilty issue, especially as a TE who is almost every play and takes shots across the middle

I’ve  never been impressed with your thoughts on this board.  This post does not in any way alter that perception. In fact it confirms my sentiment. In other words,

 

Dear God...

Hes Ballards boy.  I thought it was a joke when they were so eager to extend him


It’s not that they gave him an extension...he’s a fine vet to have around...who catches well and blocks well. But he’s also 30 now and is one year removed from hip surgery...so he would be better used as a TE1b to a young TE1a.

 

But Ballard hasn’t drafted one and the coaching staff hasn’t developed one. And then this offseason...Ebron left and Ballard was only able to get a lotto ticket signing of a (likely broken) Trey Burton to address the position. 

I hope that doesn’t happen this upcoming offseason. If TE is truly meant to be a staple of the passing game...then the Colts are going to need sign/trade for a good one and then draft one to develop.


Even better would be an in-season trade.

Wonder why, maybe because on the road, does the club save money by not elevating I wonder (Would think so though that is kinda penny pinching).

With the new CBA, teams may elevate two practice squad players to the active roster each week, but that can only happen with each individual player two times. For a third (or greater) time, the player has to go to the 53-man roster.

 

Teams then return to the 53-man roster limit when players revert to the PS at 1 p.m. business day following game.

 

I think the Colts are trying to be careful with their allotment of 2 elevations per PS member. Only use them when absolutely necessary. You are correct that PS players who get elevated to the active roster get paid league min for that week.

  • Superman changed the title to Doyle is Out (9/20)

https://www.stampedeblue.com/2020/9/24/21454904/colts-injury-report-tight-end-jack-doyle-manages-to-practice

 

Tight end Jack Doyle (knee) managed to practice today, albeit it in a limited capacity, for the first time in over a week. This is great news for the Colts as Doyle is a big part of what the team does in Frank Reich’s tight end centric offense. It’s good to see Doyle trending in the right direction but he will likely still be a long shot to play Sunday against the Jets.

Shouldn’t there be 6-7 inactive? 

Ya-Sin (non-football illness) and linebacker Matthew Adams (ankle) had already been ruled out of today's game on Friday by head coach Frank Reich; Adams was then placed on injured reserve on Saturday.

    • Supplement with draft picks. Ballard has had a few rookies playing significant snaps every year...so we could assume the same this year. Plus...you have some  younger players who could take a step forward next season.  Also...there’s player for player swaps that can be explored.   I think you could easily replace everyone on that list except Houston and Rhodes. And I would keep MAC as a cheap TE2.   A big FA contract will put a strain on the cap...which is why a rookie QB would be huge. But I also think this is their chance to spend on a premium non-QB position or two.   But another way to burn cap space is to re-sign a bunch of outgoing vets...essentially paying more money for the same team components (in many cases). If that was a list of FAs...I would probably be interested in a few of them at most. But that’s just me...and I am sure other teams will be interested in each of them on some level...so this seems like a great chance to shift some cap space to quality (instead of quantity) and accrue some comp draft capital...even if it’s mid-late Day 3 picks.
    • Ok.   Appreciate the response.   I thought you were going to say they were typo’s, but apparently not.   Alright, we see it differently.  Nothing wrong with that.  It’s what makes the world go around.    Thanks again....
    • Some team will gamble on Hooker. He will only be 25 and he’s a former lottery pick with huge talent. A $7M AAV would put him just inside the top 15...just ahead of guys like Ricardo Allen, Vonn Bell and Tre Boston. I think a team would look to lock in a second year team option of sorts...but maybe not. Either way...he should have suitors and will have an opportunity to at least get a good one-year deal to rebuild value. Edit: Obviously this is assuming Hooker has recovered and can pass a physical. If not, then he probably gets half that and possibly might not even be signed until during the season.    Rhodes was a top 10 player last season...at a premium position. He produced a ton of value on his cheap pillow contract...and now he gets to cash in. With a very good track record (even at his age), he is going to command a nice 2-3 year deal to finish out his career. A $12M AAV would pay him just outside that top 10 range for CBs...and this deal is similar to the one that Haden signed with PIT after having a late-career resurgence.  Knowing Ballard...I am sure he would structure it in a way that they could get out after one year if Rhodes fell apart. But given the current state of the CBs...they almost have to re-sign him.
    • Rivers would be a better comp in terms of mobility and arm strength, but Rivers had next level read/anticipation back then, had bad talent around him at NCS, and averaged 3000+ for 4 years.   Not at all the same. Eli and Rivers might be OK comps to each other, but comparing Jones to either is a no go.
