Now watch him get claimed off our practice squad by the Texans before Sunday. That would be a cruel joke! :Cry:

If he's just been added today, would he even be eligible to play Sunday? If so, I would expect him to be added to the 53 man roster NLT tomorrow.

I'm not sure. I'm just joking around. Personally, if I were the Colts, I'd add him to the 53 instead of having Blankenship do Punt duties as well.

If Allen is eligible, it would be a good idea as Rigo also helped lighten Blankenship's load on kickoffs and you wouldn't want to go into a game with just 1 kicker/punter in case that guy got hurt. 

 

You may have been joking about the Texans claiming Allen but seeings how we're about to play them twice in the next few weeks, I could imagine them trying to hit us in a perceived area of weakness, if only for this weekend's game.

He probably already cleared covid protocols before signing him. They must not expect Sanchez to miss three games because this allows them to use a covid call up to the 53 without putting Sanchez on IR. This way no one on the 53 has to be cut.

If they want to hit this team in a weak area, maybe they will try and steal Clark at LT. I mean, I’d offer him up to see lol. I can’t imagine Clark being capable of landing a job on any other NFL roster at this point, he is proven to be that bad.

Allen is on the PS and can be signed to the active roster of another team (provided he's not a protected player). Clark is on the active roster and since we're past the trade deadline, he's not going anywhere unless cut.

 

Your post seemed a bit tongue-in-cheek, but felt I still needed to point out that that can't happen.

Very much tongue in cheek. I am aware of the restrictions to trade him now at this point.

In that case, given how good their defense is, we just don't punt, lol :)

Was he the dude that shanked that punt in the first game against the Titans?

No

The guy who shanked the punt (and had another blocked for a touchdown) was Trevor Daniel. Allen was their punter before him, taking over when regular punter Brett Kern was hurt. Allen played 1 game for Tennessee, a Week 9 victory against Chicago in which he averaged 50.5 yards per punt on 8 punts with a long of 65 yards but the Titans inexplicably replaced him with Daniel for their Thursday night matchup against us, and we all saw the corresponding results.

 

Kern is back as their punter now.

So they don’t expect Sanchez to miss much time. They will call him up for just one game and he will go back to the PS. Can they still protect a player on the PS.

Basically the math would mean they think he will miss two games. Otherwise he would have been put on the IR for 3 games, and Allen can only be called up for 2 games from PS without being added to active roster

    • When Frank has had a good quarterback, he wins and makes the playoffs.   The two years he didn’t make the playoffs were the two Luck years where things went to heck at the last minute.   And one of those two years we looked like a playoff team until JB got hurt.  From there, things went downhill.   This year, we never lost two games in a row.  When we lost a game, we won the next week.  A very good sign of a well coached team.   We had one bad loss, week one in a season where Covid wiped out the entire off-season and all pre-season games.   Ballard speaks glowingly of Frank.   He knows how hard it is to find a good coach.   I’m not sure why you think we’re not a well coach team, but for some strange reason you do. 
    • So you don’t really agree with most?
    • Whether I've heard of them or not is irrelevant. What's relevant is that our coaches can lead our team to a SB win. You can bash me because of my lack of knowledge all you want. The real question is, do you trust Ballard to hire coaches over 31 other teams? Do you trust Frank Reich's word that these guys are good? You are being positive and trustworthy just for the sake of it too. I don't trust anyone for us until they prove they can do their job at the highest level, in the NFL and on the Indianapolis Colts.
    • Joe Tiller coached future HOFer Drew Brees at Purdue.  He's the father of "basketball on grass."  One of the most brilliant offensive coaches of his generation with an outstanding coaching tree.    I say this with no disrespect, but the fact that you haven't heard of someone is pretty meaningless.    Your responses regarding the listing of several coaching legends, together with your reactions toward the several up-and-coming NFL coaches that have been named in this thread, has established you're pretty much only familiar with a few household names that virtually every casual NFL fan is familiar with.   If that was the criterion by which all coaching decisions and hires were made, no coach would ever move up the ranks and have the chance to become successful.    Sirianni was pretty much a nobody before the Colts hired him.  He's still only 39 years old.  Now he's the HC of the Eagles.  Eberflus had never coordinated a defense before he got to Indy.  I'm guessing you had no idea who Gannon was until he was hired away.    In sum, there's no reason to be overly negative about things just for the sake of being overly negative.  It may be more rewarding to expand your horizons and learn more about the game and how many great coaches permeate every level of it.  Some coaches that you perceive as "bad" because of their tenure with a certain team go on to do great things in a different environment.  Same can be said for coaches that you've never heard of (which is seemingly a pretty big list).  That's the nature of the business. 
    • I've never heard of any of these guys besides Levy and Kush, so I have no idea if they are even good or not.
