On Sunday, convinced of my own brilliance, I made the following statement:
"If Ryan Grigson doesn't make a trade by Tuesday, I will never tweet again."
The possibility of Grigson NOT making a deal never entered my - surprisingly - limited brain. So here we are. Grigs let me down and now I'm a man without a tweet. It could be worse. I could be Blaine Gabbert.
Now, I'm not addicted to twitter or anything - pay no attention to my 52,000 tweets per month - so not tweeting is actually not that hard. Unless something incredibly stupid happens.
For example, what if the Colts decided to fill their roster spot with a tight end who had TWICE been suspended by the NFL for failing a drug test?
After the jump, we'll take a look at what my tweets may have looked like if such a ridiculous thing had actually happened.no comments
I sometimes play a card game called Blackout. Every turn, you declare how many tricks you’re hoping to win that round; each round, the number of cards in your hand increases by one. The point of the game is to evaluate your hand, estimate which cards you expect to win with, and which you expect to throw away. You gain points for guessing correctly.
Every team, midseason, has been dealt a hand. Our job: to figure out how where they stand, especially from Indy’s point of view. Hence …
… The AFC Midseason Blackout Shindig.
Well, the trade deadline passed, and that final roster spot remained empty. This evening, the team remedied that problem, welcoming tight end Weslye Saunders back to the active roster. They also signed tackle Xavier Nixon to the practice squad once again and released cornerback Daxton Swanson from Injured Reserve.
From the Colts’ press release:
Saunders, 6-5, 261 pounds, has played in 27 career games (10 starts), catching six passes for 44 yards and a touchdown. He was originally signed by the Colts as a free agent on October 16, 2012 and appeared in 11 games (four starts) last year, recording two catches for 15 yards. Saunders was waived by the Colts on July 25, 2013.no comments no comments
Who’s Playing Receiver?
The last time Reggie Wayne missed a game due to injury,
- Jim Mora was in his final season as the Colts head coach, his fate likely sealed after the infamous “Playoffs?!” rant.
- Andrew Luck was 12 years old, had just moved to Houston, TX, and quite possibly was still playing defensive end.
- Reggie Miller, Jalen Rose, and Austin Croshere were all Indiana Pacers.
- The guy writing this was still attending IUPUI in beautiful downtown Indianapolis.
- People still used flip phones, dial up, Hotmail, and occasionally something called AOL.no comments no comments
