No big surprises

Nope, just some formalities coming to fruition.

 

Hopefully this doesn't mean anything about Kelly's availability though.

 

It makes sense regardless though woth Castonzo already ruled out.

 

Makes sense to carry extra depth either way.

Hunt was also elevated for the Packers and Titans games, so this is his third time. I wonder what they plan to do with him after tomorrow.

 

I guess I also wonder why they elevated Hunt as a Center instead of Pinter. Pinter played C last week, right?

He can still be placed back on PS, just cant be elevated without being released first. Which in theory I dont think affects him to much as I highly doubt he was protected on the PS so essentially any team would have been able to snatch him up if they wanted to, up to this point.

Ya with AC out we only had 7 active ol, and with the rules you can have an extra player if that guy is an ol (8)

Could be that Pinter might be looking at backup Tackle or Guard snaps?

 

As Pt said Pinter is already on 53 man roster, Im sure you know that and just meant having him be backup Center/ or starter if Kelly misses.

 

Either way Hunt gives us protection if Kelly get injured again(it he plays) or Pinter needs to play some guard or tackle.

Hmm, covid-addled brain fart. I forgot he was on the 53.

No need to sign him at this point. Say he stinks it up this Sunday

You’d just cut him it’s not like they are stuck with him if he stinks.  By not signing him other teams could sign him though so they only reason they wouldn’t sign him is they they don’t want to use the roster spot because they think Rigo is coming back sooner than later.

They need a body and the center they elevated has at least been in the system.  With Green iffy and AC out the only healthy back up lineman they have on the active roster is Pinter.

Of course you could just cut him but my point is this may have nothing to do with Sanchez. No need to rush and sign a guy who was available this late. Even if he was to be poached elsewhere, they could just get another competent punter. This isn’t a QB or OL we are talking about

Look at the Titans punter in the first Colts game.  Finding a competent punter isn’t as easy as you make it seem.  No it’s not a QB or OL but you also don’t want to have to find one each week either.  Between the fact Rigo hasn’t been put on IR to keep him out a minimum of three weeks and that they didn’t sign Allen to the active roster those are signs they expect Rigo back sooner than later.

Kelly was a full participant in practice this week and is not on the injury report.  I'd be shocked if he doesn't play.

What if they play Hunt at C, Pinter at LG, and Big Q at left tackle. Or is that just crazy?

 

Considering Kelly is active and has been a full-participant at practice, I think it's a little crazy.  

 

Wouldn't be shocked, but quite surprised if Q moves to LT.

Well Kelly is expected to play so I don’t think they need to go with Hunt at center but based on last week I see why you asked that.  I believe Frank said yesterday Clarke will start at left tackle.  I think Hunt being brought up is more about the fact Pinter might be the only healthy reserve lineman tomorrow if Green can’t go than anything else.

Yes, punter is a position of importance.  Before the Colts-Titans 2 last week one of the reporters on ESPN (I think Matt Hasselbeck) said during predictions that he was taking the Titans and thought the game changer would be the punter, noting how much better they are in the field position battle when their healthy punter is on the field compared to the guy who messed up a few punts in our win during the first week.

 

However, if Ryan Allen was that effective a P, he likely wouldn't be on the waiver wire late in the season.  I tend to agree that Rigo will probably be back soon as it sounds like he had successful surgery removing a tumor which was not spreading to other parts of the body.  I have not seen where the tumor was or anything else aside from that.... however, I could see this game as a 'live tryout' for Allen, if he stinks cut him, if he does great and it doesn't look good on Rigo returning soon then sign him to the active roster.

He'll play....   but if he re-aggravates the injury and is sidelined again,  then another player will obviously be needed.

The fact they are elevating and not signing Allen to the main roster means right now they at least think Rigo could be back in a couple of weeks.

doesnt he just have a tumor not full blown cancer that spread ?  by catching it early he might be able to avoid chemo , but im not sure i am not a doctor.

    • https://www.si.com/nfl/2021/01/16/nfl-scouting-combine-2021-drastically-altered-covid-19   The NFL Combine won't be like were used to, due to the Covid-19 pandemic, which limit the possibilities for teams to evaluate the players and their talent.   In the 4 years Ballard has been in Indianapolis, he have really nailed some of his draft picks and the scouting staff he has gathered in that period, have really been praised and mentioned time and time again, for their talent evaluation skills and success rate in the draft picks.   I know, every team have a huge setup and that the pandemic has limited the possibility for gathering as much information on every player in 2020 compared to other years, so it might be status Q. But the colts have been one of the better drafting teams the last couple of years, and with players like Big Q, Leonard, Taylor, Blackmon and Pittmann, Ballard and his team has really nailed some picks.   So, due to the major impact it will have for the entire league, that their won't be any scouting combine like were used to, does the Colts then have a slightly advantage over other teams, due to the setup Ballard and Ed Dodds have built?   I am especially thinking about an edge over teams with new GM´s, HC's and so on.
    • 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

    • Wow, 5 pages of rants and arguments.  This is an off season comedy.
