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.

    • We've got some decent value at the 5 and dime store.   Great bargains Rhodes Moore   Good bargains TJ Carrie Wilson
    • They are talking about next year's picks, which one (either 1st or 2nd) is conditionally going to Philly. Doubt they can contractually use either in a trade for this year (unless it's with Philly). Perhaps there's contract language that says we can deal our 2nd, but if we do, Philly would automatically get our 1st.
    • What is his role?     So does everybody on the team who doesn't want to be traded because of whatever Easterby did not seeing things as well as Watson and 5 players who were let go by the team?  Why are the 5 seeing it correctly and the 150 not?      
    • Instead of trying to split the atom on how stats are measured, let's keep it simple and just apply basic logic.    Should we not expect a 31 year old to lose speed? Should we not expect a tiny guy who's losing his speed, to struggle getting the same separation he relied on all these years? Even if you disagree with the majority of fans (who think he's slowed), wouldn't the trained eyes of the coaches know better? And if TY still had it (and Rivers was at fault), wouldn't TY get a better/longer deal than 1 year / 8M? Should we believe TY's stats are simply wrong, while most of the other pass catchers are grading better at separation while getting the same balls, by the same QB? Are stats out to get TY, or is Philip just bad throwing to TY and good to everyone else? And nobody saying Rivers is great. But simply other pass catchers are grading better with Rivers, than TY. TY relied on his speed all these years (along with route running). He's losing that speed, and now has to rely on route running (for tough yards) and mismatches (seam and bad DBs) for the majority of his highlights. There's no mystery here. It's just getting harder for him. I really hope he can squeeze one more 1000 yard season out for the Colts.   
    • You are having a different conversation than I am.   I'm talking about the narrow issue of Watson possibly being traded, and citing the reasons he supposedly stated for wanting to be traded.  I show you articles because you insinuate that I am wrong about those reasons.    What the culture is or is not in the HOU organization is not relevant, because no articles have cited culture as being the reason.    Its also not relevant to Watson, because it seems to me that if these adverse conditions were long standing since the time AJ and Foster were in the locker room, then those conditions must not have have been a big deal to Watson in September when he chose to extended his playing time with such a bad organization run by such awful political owners.  That must not be the reason he wants a trade.
