Kevin Bowen said Nelson was barefoot at practice yesterday. Wonder if he hurt his toe worse. Then hambright was signed to the 53.

Colts re-sign OG Dakoda Shepley to the practice squad among roster moves

 

I liked what I saw from Shepley  in preseason. Canadian player.

He can play tackle, guard and center

 

...The Colts have been busy at offensive guard recently, having elevated Arlington Hambright to the active roster and also signed veteran Ike Boettger to their taxi-man squad.

Shepley should provide additional interior offensive line depth, replacing Hambright’s spot on the team’s practice squad going forward...

Yeah I doubt he is playing.  Looks like colts might be being very smart smart with concussions in seeing how they handled Ogletree.  

As I remember, the Colts have been sitting players out (with concussions) for at least one game, for a few years now.

Could see Tony Brown and/or Jaylon Jones 

Brown will play slot if Kenny doesn’t play.

He may but he plays outside and Kenny plays inside.  Brown will probably get Kenny’s reps.  Brents May be the backup and play mostly special teams.

Just talking about bodies. We will need the extra body.

They may.  They do have Jones too.  I am not ruling it out.  If Moore, Kelly, and Richardson are all out that will really limit the healthy scratches.  Still if Brents plays I think it will mostly be on special teams baring injuries.

Yeah, the secondary hasn't played too well yet - not a lot to lose there.  I suppose they did well enough in the Texan game before Prevent Defense time started in the 3rd quarter.  I don't think we're losing too much if Tony Brown goes in for Moore.  I'm much more worried about the IOL - that's where I expect our OL to win big against the Ravens.

This could get ugly Sunday. Two backup lineman possible and no Kenny Moore.

 

 

 

...On the positive side, with Kelly, Nelson and Moore entrenched on the depth chart, it gives us the chance to see what these backup players can do.

Kelly, and Moore may be on the way out after this season? And if Nelson continues to miss time, and/or, if his production continues to drop, his days might be numbered as well? Another game to see what Minshew brings to the table as backup qb

Moore has played well,  you can’t judge one player based on a whole groups performance.

I would be a little worried if Richardson had to deal with a backup center. But with Minshew playing I think he will be able to handle protections ok with a backup center.

AR didn't practice today. Looks like we will get Mustache on Sunday unless something big changes now.

Damn, I had no idea Moore was even injured??

Something else to watch is Leonard. He has been huge in spying Lamar when we have played ravens.  Maybe we use speed more as a spy.

Need Kenny healthy against rams to cover that rookie slot WR they have.

Leonard is starting to get the rust off of him and he has played to clean games with no injuries. He is now due to have a game where he creates more havoc and get a Turnover.

I am not even worried about injuries this year. Just going to enjoy the ride this year and see where it leads. Next year the pressure will start.

 

If the weather is bad Sunday that might level the playing field. Ravens have a bunch of injuries too.

I'm worried. I want to and think they can win this game. I'm not forfeiting the season like most on here are.

If all those DNPs end up not playing, both teams will have quite a few starters out. Baltimore maybe even more than us?

I just looked at the Ravens depth chart, that team certainly should not strike fear into the hearts of any Colts coaches or players.

Everyone here is assuming they are so much better than us...

Player for player, I see no big difference, of them ahead of us.

Definitely the Colts can win. The Ravens are beatable. I'm not very impressed with their roster. But will the Colts  beat themselves?...is the better question.

Agree. I just get a kick from the posters on here that are willing to give up on season after season because the Colts don't have the perfect roster. Most likely , most have never played competitive sports.

i hope the colts play aggressive the whole game. if the coaches go conservative late in the game it will be hard to win

I am not one of them. This year is about AR progressing but having said that I hate losing. I will never have the mentality where losing doesn't matter. Some in here do, they do the same thing every year as in wanting a high draft pick and say losing doesn't matter after a few games. One can't have that mindset every single year - it gets you nowhere, if that was the case, they are ok if the Colts stink every year I guess. I also think we are far from the worse team in the league, we are better than the Texans, Pats, Jets without Rodgers, Broncos, Raiders, Panthers, Giants, Bears, Rams, and Cards. That is 10 teams right there I named that we are better than. So we won't be picking in the top 10 anyway.

every gm should have his roster built to have a chance to win it all each season. i dont believe in a rebuilding year, that is what the off season is for.

Colts might avoid the worst of the tropical system Sunday. The system looks like to be the worse Saturday and the tropical storm warning is over Sunday morning. Still might be raining though.

The field will will still be wet and wind may impact kicking game even if rain has stopped.

    • The site created their own way of trying to compare the value of a any player, regardless of position.  Over time, they call it the "weighted average value" or "wAV".  I don't know how well it works out, but at least they tried!   If you want to read through their exhaustive methodology, here's the link for it. https://www.sports-reference.com/blog/approximate-value-methodology/  
    • How many players from the Baltimore Colts are in the Ring of Honor?
    • To continue kicking the dead horse of sacks/pressures...   I decided to compile some numbers from PFR, to investigate whether the Colts sack/pressure ratio on defense in 2023 is an outlier, and unsustainable. The Colts were 5th in total sacks, but 24th in pressures. I think that's an anomaly, so let me share the numbers that support my case.   In 2023, the Colts defense had 51 sacks on 127 pressures, converting 40% of their pressures into sacks. (From this point forward, I'll use the term "sack rate" in reference to this ratio.) This is the second highest sack rate in 2023, and the fourth highest sack rate of any team in the last five years (42% twice, 45% once). It's my opinion that this high sack rate is an unsustainable outlier.   From 2019 to 2023, the league-wide sack rate was 27% (6,362 sacks, on 23,204 pressures). In 2019, 28% (1,276 sacks, 4,585 pressures). 2020, 24% (1,135 sacks, 4,739 pressures). (Lowest sack rate and number of sacks) 2021, 25% (1,244 sacks, 5,056 pressures). (Highest total pressures) 2022, 30% (1,297 sacks, 4,325 pressures). (Lowest total pressures) 2023, 31% (1,410 sacks, 4,449 pressures). (Highest sack rate and number of sacks) It's only a five year sample, so I wouldn't say for sure that there's a trend in either direction. It's interesting that the two highest sack total and sack rate years were 2022 and 2023, so maybe there's a trend forming; but I think understanding how many QBs have been injured lately would help to explain the recent increase. In 2019, the lowest sack rate was 20% (Bears), and the highest was 34% (Panthers). 2020, the lowest was 14% (Raiders; this is also the lowest sack rate for all five years), highest was 36% (Rams). 2021, the lowest was 17% (Falcons), highest was 39% (Bears). 2022, the lowest was 21% (Jaguars), highest was 45% (Saints; this is also the highest sack rate for all five years). 2023, the lowest was 22% (Lions), and the highest was 42% (Ravens; Colts were second, at 40%).  And for comparison: The Colts sack rate for the last five years: 31.6% (209 sacks, 661 pressures) 2019, 31% (3 points above league average) 2020, 27% (3 points above league average) 2021, 28% (3 points above league average) 2022, 33% (3 points above league average) 2023, 40% (9 points above league average) So that’s a lot of info. It’s not comprehensive, it’s actually a really small sample. I’m also not analyzing the quality of the defenses, because pass rush is just one element of a successful defense.   The questions I set out to answer were 1) Whether the Colts 40% pressure to sack rate is an outlier, and I think it’s obvious that it is an outlier. Out of 160 results (32 teams x five seasons), it’s the fourth highest sack rate of any team defense since 2019, and it’s 13 points higher than the average sack rate during those five years. Compared to the Colts own performance, the 2023 sack rate is 7 points higher than 2022 (Bradley’s first year), and it’s more than 8 points higher than their five year average. So I think it’s clearly an outlier result.   And 2) Whether that sack rate is sustainable, I think this is less conclusive, but the sample indicates that it’s not sustainable. From 2019 to 2022, the Colts have a history of outperforming the league average sack rate, by 3 points each year. But in 2023, that tripled to 9 points above league average. And it’s by far the highest sack rate the Colts posted in the five year sample. So I think calling it unsustainable is accurate. (It's more likely that the Colts will be closer to 3 points above league average in 2024; with a similar number of total pressures, that would cost the defense about 10 total sacks.)   Just to further support the idea that it’s not sustainable, I looked at the Ravens sack rate over the last five years, simply because they led the league in sack rate in 2023. They went 42%, 38%, 22%, 22%, 26%, and over the five years, they averaged a 29% sack rate. So they've been well above the league average the last two seasons, but below league average the previous three seasons, and only 2 points higher than league average overall.    That’s a lot, so what’s my point? To be clear, I'm not saying that having a high sack rate is a bad thing, or that pressures are more important than sacks.    What I'm saying is a team converting 40% of their pressures into sacks is a statistical outlier, and it would be a mistake for the Colts to rely on converting pressures to sacks at such a high rate moving forward. That's not reliable output, based on recent history and trends. Even converting 30% of pressures to sacks is above typical league average, but at least that seems reasonable for the Colts' defense.   So if the Colts want to reach that 50+ sack threshold again in 2024, 127 total pressures (7.5/game) won't get it done. We need to count on having a sack rate closer to 30% than 40%, and that means we need to be closer to pressuring the QB 170 times total (10/game) next season. 
    • Good. I want to see this offense and Richardson shut up the naysayers.
