I wish we had of released a different player, but someone with knowledge of the Colts playbook is nice.

I just have to giggle with glee whenever Rick makes moves because they seem to pan out. With Casserly, my giggles were the type a person in a looney bin would make cause he drove me crazy.

I do hate to see Z go. He didn't show much in preseason, but you just had to pull for the guy. Maybe he can go somewhere were he actually has a chance to play. Sage is an extremely solid #2 and I didn't see Z beating him out anytime soon.

If we get into a problem, we can probably re-sign Zabransky or Quinton Porter.

Let me just say that I am the founding member of the Anybody But Van Pelt club just in case he rears his ugly head again.

But our in-game emergency QB is probably Owen Daniels.

Default Re: Rick Smith at it again!

Quote:
Position: WR
Class: Sr
School: Auburn
Conference: Southeastern
Ht., Wt.: 6-2.5, 201
40 Time: 4.38
Selected by: Miami Dolphins
Round 7, pick 25 (233 overall)
Grading System

BIO: Two-year starter who totaled 26/494/4 as a senior after junior numbers of 24/513/4.

POSITIVES: Explosive receiver with an unpolished game. Quickly releases off the line, sharp running routes and gets separation from opponents. Comes back to the ball using his frame to protect the pass and adjusts to the errant throw. Possesses a burst of speed, playing faster than his 40 time and beating opponents in a foot race.

NEGATIVES: Constantly lets the pass get inside him and body catches. Lacks a sense of timing and anticipation. Rarely catches the ball cleanly and drops too many passes.

ANALYSIS: A solid athlete who can stretch the field, Aromashodu projects as a third receiver for a vertical offense. Needs to fine-tune his game and work harder to reach the level of expectation NFL scouts have for him.

PROJECTION: Late Seventh Round

seems each week he picks a former player of the team they are about to play off waivers

Texans fans your not going to believe this but he was graded out talent wise according to NFL Draft Scout as a 2nd-3rd pick but to probably slide to 2nd day based on work ethic & intangilbles. Aromashodu has Jerome Mathis speed 4.35. I would not be surprised to see him switch roles since Jerome knows the Texans scheme already & split return duties while Jerome focuses on his route running with the 2nd team offense. might also be an indication that Andres injury is more severe than thought & could be out 3-4 weeks (specualtion on my part). regardless a move made by Rick Smith that addresses need @ a critical time. I tell you what while other GM's are standing still he is doing circles around the entire league- don't look now Indy theres a new sheriff in town

He's another with a track history as well as basketball and football. He's also a kick returner.............a speedster that runs a 40 of 4.4.

I wouldn't look too much into this pickup. I think it is only due to Davis being actived for this game. They needed to fill a practice squad spot and they replaced that need with another WR. Having prior insight to how the Colts offense runs is just an added benefit.

Is Killings being moved back to the PS?

I think that depends on what happens with TJ. If his ankle or foot is healthy then he would be activated and Killings would go back to the PS.

1) This signing actually kind of excites me. I'd like to see us develop him a little more and hopefully he can produce for us.

2) I really have no feelings for Zabransky, no offense to him or anybody who likes him a lot. I thought he had a 'must win' attitude but never saw him giving the texans anything on the field. I wanted us to develop him and try and trade him to some team for a draft pick.

3) This WR was drafted in the 7th round of the 2006 draft? I don't see that he has an intimate knowledge of the colts playbook that will help us out too much.

Von Hutchins was a DB for the colts, he can probably help us out more than this new wr.

Go Rick Smith, yayuuhh!

Z-man played with gusto, but not very well IMO. Porter seemed much more polished and would likely be the guy we sign if there ever arises a need. Sure hope that need stays away.

I agree. In all likelihood, he'll probably just be another guy on the roster.

Killings wasn't on the practice squad. He was an outright release and then resigned when Travis was hurting. Dreessen was released at that time.

Andre Davis is on the active roster, not on the practice squad either. He'll be active this week if Andre can't go, but it has nothing to do with the ps.

Default Re: Rick Smith at it again!

I'm curious as to why Mr. Smith wouldn't go back and get one of the guys that have been through camp to fill that spot. Did someone pick up Bethel or David Anderson? If it were as simple as just filling a roster spot for the practice squad then I think he would have grabbed one of them. I thought Bethel Johnson looked pretty good in camp. At least good enough to be on a practice squad. I guess he's inelligible. Obviously Keenan wouldn't fit there. As I"m typing this I think I'm answering my own question.


go Ricky go!
