The debate is over.
The Colts made the right calls on cuts.
They've just announced five practice squad signings, and they are all the most controversial of the cuts:
QB Tom Brandstater
DE John Chick
KR Brandon James
WR Blair White
S Mike Newton
So, if any of these players were actually so good that the Colts had made a mistake by cutting them, they would have been signed by another team. Every franchise in the NFL had a crack at them, and no one wanted them for their active roster.
Now that the 'drama' is over, we can get on to the business of taking down the Texans next week.
