Lucky for you next game is in 2021,,,,,,playoffs here we come.

Im done with 2020

I stand corrected.  He did get signed out of retirement to start at LT for us.   And did decent.  Credit to Ballard.  Savvy move.   As long as we can run the ball, we have a chance

Okay, I’m confused by this thread.

But Webb can’t so something had to be done but man this reeks of desperation.

AC is out for the year, if not for good. We needed to try someone else. Yeah, definitely a desperate situation

He's currently on the practice squad.   While the Colts are left in a rough spot with AC being out, I think this is more of a smart depth move.

I’m fairly certain we are desperate. We have four amazing OL starters and some of the worst OL backups in the league

I think all five of our starters are good.  glow had graded out really high this year.  With that said I know they desperate without AC I was just saying it.

Apologies, I should have clarified; all five of our starters ARE amazing; I said FOUR because I was not including AC since he is out now. Trust me, I like Glo-Worm quite a lot

I was wondering if that was what you meant.  I know some take Glow for granted so I guessed and guessed wrong.

Isn't the title of the thread kinda misleading?


Veldheer wasn't brought in to start.  He was signed to the practice squad...

 

I'm assuming he'll dress and be available Sunday, but "signed out of retirement to START at tackle for us"...

I guess Green Bay is also desperate?  Their Pro-Bowl LT Bakhtiari also just had a season-ending injury.  packers-lt-david-bakhtiari-suffers-season-ending-knee-injury

 

Arguably the best LT in the game.  He's the highest paid.  david-bakhtiari-packers-agree-to-four-year-105-5m-extension

 

Good thing we sniped Veldheer before GB could!  haha

You can say that again.  He played for them in the playoffs last year.  I'm sure he would have been their first choice.

Well he’s only on the Colts practice squad the Packers could sign him off that.

He's on the PS because that's the logical process, as we've seen it play out with street fa after street fa this year.  Sign to PS, elevate just before game to regular roster....not sure why, but there's some advantage to that way of doing it

Right I am not arguing that he shouldn’t be I am just saying because he’s only on the practice squad the Packers could sign him if they want too based on people saying it’s good thing the Colts got him before the Packers tackle got hurt.

    • Contreras gets his payback!!! And I find it odd that Woodruff got so upset when he was thrown at(not hit) as he is the one who has plunked Contreras the most the past several times they’ve played the Pirates. Anyway...  
    • Bold prediction: CW announces retirement at next to last home pre season game.
    • I don't understand your point. Basically every owner agrees to basically every significant roster move. Are you arguing that no GM or head coach has ever been fired? Or that Irsay would fire himself instead of Ballard and/or Reich?
    • I thought this was an interesting watch:     There are really only a handful of Superstar Free Agent signings that you can point to and say "that's why they won a SB":  Tom Brady to Tampa.  Reggie White to Green Bay.  Deion Sanders to Dallas/SF.  Brees to New Orleans.  Peyton to Denver.  And every one of those guys is in the conversation of being the best to play their position... like ever.  But the key is that the teams they went to had already been built through the draft, which is what Ballard is doing.  If you build it, they will come.  (We can kind of already see this with Rivers choosing the Colts last year and Wentz preferring the Colts this year)   I don't think anyone that was a free agent this year is in the conversation of being the GOAT at their respective position, so it really didn't make sense to break the bank for any of the "superstar" free agents this year.  I know @DEFENSE doesn't like Ballards "dollar general method", but it's pretty smart considering the big splash free agent signings rarely correlate to SBs, because those elite HoF-type Superstar Free Agents only come around once in a blue moon.   And Ballard has spent quite a bit the last two offseasons on arguably the two most important positions:  QB to make the offense run, and 3T to make the defense run.  He just didn't spent it on superstar free agents, he traded for proven guys still in their prime.  Ballard is being aggressive with trades and big contracts, but he isn't being stupid wasting big money on a FA when there isn't a guy worth that kind of money.
