    The Official 2010 Colts Preseason Thread

    We should all be pumped. Summer is reaching its midpoint and football is not too far away with Training Camps opening up. Let's get some buzz going on in here.

    Questions.

    1)-Besides Hughes, which rookie are you expecting to make the biggest impact?

    2)-What type of impact will Anthony Gonzalez make this season...if ever as a Colt?

    3)-Pick one guy who you think could come out of nowhere (or relative obscurity) and be a decent backup/starter/etc.

    I'm pretty happy with the Practice Squad. It holds a couple of guys I though should have made the 53, like Tom Brandstater, Blair White and John Chick, as well as bringing in Xavier Fulton, who as a prospect I was quite keen on a couple of years ago.

    Only 4 WRs on active roster. I think Tamme will be used as a WR5.

    Erwin Baldwin

    Erwin Baldwin has played better than King and Favorite this pre-season, IMO. His relentless motor in pursuit of RBs from the back or pass rushing from the edge has led me to believe we carry 5 DEs since Jerry Hughes is still learning.

    DEs - Freeney, Mathis, Chick, Hughes, Baldwin

    DTs - Mookie, Muir, Moala, Foster, one of Mitch King/Marlon Favorite/Ricardo Mathews


    Brandon James has not stood out in the return dept., the fact that we are stacked at WR goes against him while the fact that we are thin at CB favors Ray Fisher, IMO. Plus, Brandon James has struggled holding on to balls in traffic and he is what 5'6", 5'7"? He is not a natural wideout, and it shows. Plus, I get flashbacks of the Colts cutting Courtney Roby for a fumble during a return. Good that he turned things around while playing for the Saints but he did not do well for the Colts, that is the bottom line. So, that muffed punt against Packers starters is a big checkmark against Brandon James, those will be the kind of players he will be going against. Plus, I really doubt Brandon James would catch those TD passes against starting CBs in the league that he did yesterday. Too much of a limited role for him.

    Blair White played ST as a hands/coverage guy too and given that we had WRs go down 2 times in the last 3 years (Harrison in 2007 & Gonzo in 2009), I'd rather have a 5th WR that can at least move the chains with reliable hands than agonize over dropped balls from Aaron Moorehead and Hank Baskett that stalled drives, like we did in 2007 & 2009.

    Well, from what I've heard, Jamie Thomas has looked good at camp, especially in run-blocking.

    But I do agree that we have virtually no depth at OT.

    I would say that if we take less than 10 O-Linemen then it will be Thomas and not Linkenbach who will be put on the Practice Squad. If Ugoh is the starter at Left Guard and the team cut Linkenbach then it leaves absolutely no cover at Tackle, with two injury prone players at both Tackle spots.

    I could see Kavell Conner making the team as a replacement for one of those Linemen (I really haven't been impressed by Glenn in training camp or preseason). Personally, if it was purely for Special Teams, I wouldn't bring in a new Linebacker to replace the Linemen. I'd bring in Giguere instead. He's probably been the team's best Gunner during Preseason.

    You are hurting Special Teams coverage unit by carrying too many slow, 300+ lbs players.

    I think we carry more then 6 LBs.

    I think 2 of Tuihalamaka, Conner and Glenn will make it.
    I think last night Brandon James made a bit of a case for himself but it came down to him or Fisher. I liked Favorite but the problem was that there were 3 spots for him, King and Matthews. Matthews brings greater versatility and I think King has been better than Favorite.

    We carried, for the most part, 9 Offensive Linemen last year and that was with the Starter position locked down at one Guard position. This year we don't have a sure fire starter at either Guard position. We have two injury prone starting Tackles and their principle backup, if we cut Linkenbach, will be the probable starter at Left Guard.
