BPerriman cut by Lions! I know Colts are already good at wr, but is it worth a look after TYs injury?

Not a chance. The Lions have one of the worst receiving groups in the NFL and he couldn't stay on their roster. He looked awful Friday night against us.

you beat me to it.  I've heard of this done a long time ago.  I always thought it was risky.

 

Waivers are batched at the end of the day, then processed the following day. Every team works off a comprehensive list, so when you release a guy doesn't really matter. It's all about whether a team wants your guy enough to let go of one their own players.

A bit shocked he was one of the earliest cuts

Just because it came out now doesn’t mean he was one of the first cuts it just means we found out early.  Irsay said difficult decisions were being made today so I think the Colts are doing all their cuts today.  From there they have to notify people and I doubt the first thing any of them do is go I just got cut better call the media and let them know!  The media just reports stuff as they find out from sources and the sources are probably not always on the first to notify list either.

A revolving door couldn't be much worse than Tevi was.  I hope that's not the bar we're setting.

At this point guys getting cut are not guys who have performed well.   Anyone we claim is likely NOT to be someone who has great pre-season tape or even good. 
 

But they might hopefully have traits that we like.  We might have a good eval on them from college or a previous NFL team.   Something that says we might be able to get something out of the player that a previous team didn’t. 
 

Just saying….

Is it possible that he asked to be released....thinking he might get to start on a team that is not at the top of the waiver wire heap?

This could be a interesting  player to take a look at. Our ends made him look bad though Friday.

 

 

I think there would definitely be interest there. But I'm pretty sure he was injury waived, not sure the severity though. Interesting none the less.

The majority of the time that is true, but certain teams have a lot of depth at specific positions and can't keep everyone.  They are hoping to sneak some guys on the practice squad. 

 

We hit a home run when Pats waived Kenny Moore.

So who will be the UDFA who makes the 53?

My guess is Jackson

 

Vaughns has outside chance, increased a little with TY injury.

 

 

If any.

You just know there’s going to be at least 1 maybe 2 shocking cuts. Guys who we thought were no doubt going to make the squad.

My money is on Quenton Nelson. Also my money is in Blockbuster stocks

If Vaughns makes the roster as a TY replacement, that would be cool, I like his game. However, TY has to start on the 53 and then get placed on IR before Vaughns could be signed to the active roster. So technically, Vaughns would not make the initial 53 because of a paperwork shuffle.

I really like Vaughns too.  But I'm guessing Harris has more value to the Colts.  He's more of a TY type of player, and he knows the system.  

 

I hope they can find a way to keep them both on the PS.

Wentz too.  He threw for the least amount of yards out of all the qbs this preseason.  Although he had the fewest ints too.

My surprise move is a Marlon Mack trade. The Ravens could offer a decent draft pick or perhaps a player that would intrigue Ballard PLUS it gives Mack (whom the FO LOVES) an opportunity to start.

A chance to start is the one reason I see Mack gone

Not as crazy as it may sound.  IMO, the main reason they signed Mack was they were helping him out by showing the rest of the NFL that he could still play.  And in the meantime, give us extra insurance behind Taylor.  I don't think he was ever going to be on the 2022 roster.

I have always thought he was a candidate for a trade even with his 2 mil guaranteed. The Ravens are now an interesting possibility.  We will see.

This is just an idea not a jab at you but can we start another thread for other NFL moves or speculation of how those moves might impact the Colts?  The Colts cuts alone will be hard enough to track in this thread until the team releases the list.

    • If we win out (11 – 6), we still need help: Titans lose 3 games (we win division) or three of the following happen (we are a wild-card): 1. Bills lose 2 games or NE loses 1 other game. 2. Ravens lose 4 games or Bengals lose 3 games. 3. Raiders lose another game 4. Chargers lose 2 games 5. Broncos lose 2 games.      
    • I'm still trying to figure out the story about AB and the girlfriend in the story!
    • but the fact they still ran it 30 times shows they maintained balance throughout the game, which is all we've been asking frank to do.  they didn't go almost a quarter and a half without a rushing attempt.  they kept the bucs defense honest and prevented their pass rush from just pinning their ears back and going after the QB.   and the 30 rushing attempts did more to wear down the Bucs Defense than if they'd gone all out pass
    • that's a really cherry picked, "but what if..." lol.  quite a reach to try to keep defending your position.   I mean...agree to disgree I guess but anyone who's watched even a decent amount of football should know that going all out pass, no rushing at all, makes the team more susceptible to sacks and turnovers.  
    • Our defense hasn’t been great this year but football is symbiotic. The offense, defense, and special teams all have to compliment each other.  Last game the offense & special teams kept turning the ball over.  Sure the defense has to get some stops after those turnovers but the other 2 phases also have to stop turning it over.  I also remember our D stopping Brady 3 & out when we were down 4 to keep us in the game.  Then muffed punt.  Then they still went right back out and held the Bucs to 3 on a short field when a TD would’ve probably ended the game.  They gave our offense another chance to get their shot together. And they finally did by giving the ball to our MVP.     And remember the offense’s job is to score points not just to get yards (yes all the yards from those however many straight 2nd half passes were irrelevant because we never scored on those drives).  Only turnovers and a punt.  Seems like people are quick to make excuses and give passes to our HC, QB, and offense and lump all the blame on the defense.  We can all agree that with the injuries to our secondary, our offense is our better unit this year.  I expect more out of them.  From what I’ve seen, our O’s lack of execution & play calling have cost us more games than our defense this year.  Our margin for error is too thin for our best unit (Offense) to not carry the team most games.  That’s why all 3 phases have to be complimentary.     Our identity is a team with a dominant rushing attack, clutch QB play, and an opportunistic defense that creates turnovers.  We stick to that formula and we’re a playoff team that no one wants to face.  We stray from it and we’re a mediocre team that finds more ways to lose against our tougher competition than to win.
