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.

    • Plus the playmaking defense.    For Stafford id think its between us a SF. But this is up to the lions FO. 
    • I mean... everybody says that and right now maybe we are the best option for him, but would that be the same in 2 years time? Who knows...    About the pick compensation - yes, I would really hope Ballard doesn't go into a bidding war with other teams. Have a firm price set and don't go over it. 1st and 3d is about the max I would be willing to give for 33 year old Stafford. 
    • Stafford has been very public about his number one goal:   Winning.   (His words, not mine).   He’s not going to want to leave because we want to pay him $25m instead of $30+ million.   The Colts give Stafford the best chance of winning.   Period.  Leaving the Colts for a money grab would be the worst look possible for him.  I don’t see that as a worry.  Honestly.    My bigger concern is the cost in draft picks to acquire him.  There may be a bidding war, which could prove very expensive.   At some point, I could see Ballard dropping out.   We will likely know in the next 6 weeks. 
    • He is 33 and has 2 years left on reasonable contract. After that you will have to give him a contract in the realm of what other top QBs are getting now and he will be getting older... So you will either have to pay big or lose him and this is while all our young pieces are moving out of their rookie contracts... So we will start losing some of them. So IMO IF we get Stafford this will be the golden window to try to go all in...  Use Stafford's best remaining years at the best contract you will have him at, to try to surround him with best talent we can get while our young player are still cheap. Later he will be older/worse on worse contract and our young studs we either be paid much more (less money to get reinforcement elsewhere) or will be gone.    So... Go all in NOW. This doesn't mean you concede the later years, but IMO the best chance we have are the next 2 years if we get Stafford. This is legitimate Superbowl contender if we can get one of the top receivers, a very good pass-rusher and some solid CBs.
