Ravens fans in the comments didn’t like him leaving so that encouraging.

Swing tackle candidate, it seems like. We could always use guys like those, like we had in Joe Reitz and Joe Haeg. :)

Eh, I understand we've asked him to change his first name to Won't.

I tend to trust the Ravens talent evaluation staff, so I'm assuming Holdin is probably better than either Clark or Green.

So where does Holden stack up to comparisons on Prince Tega Wanogho from the Eagles @EastStreet? Those of you who like the oline players @Coffeedrinker and @krunk maybe? Who has thoughts comparing these two? TIA

 

wow, already 7 teams for this Holden guy and he already was in our system a few years back for some period of time. Likely just a body then and no better than what back ups we currently have. Crud!

Nice to have Costanzo practicing again. Big for our O-Line, and chances of beating the Raiders Sunday if he plays.

 

On a side note: I wonder if Holden plays Holdem? haha 

Only in Texas.

 

On the Holden note: does he have to quarantine for 2 weeks before entering the building?

I'm not sure. I'm guessing no if he has no symptoms of the Virus. However, if he does, it might mean it's a sign that Constanzo will 100% play Sunday. Just a theory.

Holden was taken off the covid list I think by the ravens before this happened.  He might have to go through six days of testing first. Unless he has already been doing that.

Yeah, I'm pretty sure he'll play Sunday. If not, then you can bet Constanzo will 100% play. Ballard isn't going to leave Green in as the starter with no backup.

I was right the ravens took him off the covid list yesterday. So that means he has had consecutive negative tests. So maybe he will be activated for Sunday.

So....    If I follow you......

 

You trust a guy who is on an NFL practice squad here in week 14 over two players who have spent years in NFL 53-man rosters?!?

 

Oh-Kayyyyyyy!!         :peek:

No, not trust the player.  I trust the Ravens.  But that was just off the cuff since I know nothing about Holdin.  I assumed that he was a recent Ravens draft pick and hadn't bounced around the league.

Not to mention a guy the Colts let go of when they had one of those two guys.  I think this what we call wishful thinking.

He’s not.  He actually spent some time with the Colts in 2018 which is why I assume they brought him back.  In theory he should at least know a little of the Colts system compared to someone else.  Again the best thing here for the Colts is AC to get healthy and Green and Holdin to never start.

After a very quick look at his history, yea, pretty much an emergency body. His PFF is very limited, but very meh. 

I don't think there's much of a comparison with PTW to be honest. PTW was one of the better OTs in the SEC, and on a team known for good OLs (IIRC, he was 1st or 2nd team). Holden is from Vandy, and without much fanfare. The frequent hops say a lot.

I don't know. I think Jeff Saturday was cut by the Ravens and turned into a halfway decent center for us. There have been a few cases of teams making mistakes on players in the past. We can always hope he can help.

I thought Green played fairly well in the first half.

 

Although the pass rush definitely got after Rivers in the second half

    • It's a pipe dream. It's not happening.
    • There’s a very easy pick for the Jaguars to make but let’s see if they make it lol.
    • Crap, sorry.   with the 129th pick, the Seahawks select:   Anthony Schwartz, WR, Auburn   If that doesn’t make Russell Wilson happy, then 7@€# him!   @crazycolt1and the Jags are aim the clock.
    • Watson started this recent public trade thing by stating that the organization has flawed hiring practices.  And I think he never debunked the idea that the current owner was a lot like his father, simply because he is his son.   Its not really about the next season or even the team's won loss record over the next three years.  Its bigger than that.  I think it would be smarter to not accommodate whiners, and in a legal manner, not set the precedent of accommodating someone who conducts detrimental actions that undermines the new coach and the authority structure of the organization.   If you accommodate Watson, you set the precedent that all whiners need to be accommodated or else you end up singling some out for disparate treatment.  This shows what a cancer players like Watson are to an entire organization.    And, I would think a player like that has limited trade value, despite the rumors.  I would  simply move on from him....forget he even exists...would be the less time consuming and smarter move.  If he wants to sit out, fine, but I'm drafting this spring with the idea that he's going to try to put me at a disadvantage and wait until after FA and the draft before he tells me he wont play next year.   There is some root of the problem that has yet to be revealed.   If its about making bad personnel decisions, resulting in a losing record, I get that....but the HC, OBrien who was responsible for those moves was fired months ago.  Seems like Watson and Watt are still holding some kind of grudge over something, or simply launching their marketing brand by grandstanding.   If I were the GM, I'd just ignore Watson until he apologized for those statements instead of honoring his wishes, and then if the team struggles, show to the whole world what people like that can do to a team, blame the teams failure's over a whiner sitting out the season too arrogant and stubborn to apologize for something he should not have said in the first place.
