Bloody Saturday


You've probably all heard that Curt Painter made the Colts roster, being the third QB on the Colts roster for the first time in a long time...Dungy didn't think a third was needed in the past 5-7 seasons with Manning's stability, but the perspective seems to have changed- maybe it's because of Manning's injury during pre-season last year, who knows. Regardless, Painter became pretty wealthy this weekened.

But, as Painter got the good news on Saturday afternoon, a bunch of his fellow Boilers lost their roster spots...some surprising, some not.

Surprises:
Stu Schweigert
Bernard Pollard

Predictable:
John Standeford
Kory Sheets
Eugene Bright
Ryan Baker
Charles Davis
Anthony Heygood

I'm always sad to see these guys dreams of playing professional football come to an end...many will still get paid to play football, either in Canada or on practice rosters...But I think many will go on to represent Purdue well in other fields...at least that is always my hope.

Sheets made the practice squad for SF, so we'll see. I know he had a fantastic pre-season, so it was a shock to many when he didn't make it.

The problem was who he's behind...kinda like Pollard, I guess.

Pollard should find a gig quickly- Colts? Please?

Schweigert shouldn't have been any more of a surprise than Standeford. He couldn't win a starting job with last year's Lions, one of the worst defenses in modern NFL history, and he wasn't going to move ahead of Louis Delmas.

To be fair, though, I'm not sure he really got a fair shot in Detroit. Barry was totally incompetent and Marinelli seemed to have a blind eye toward that. Schwartz seems to be looking for two things right now: old guys who can talk about success and young guys. Schweigert isn't really either. But hell, after four years in Oakland and one in Detroit, it would be nice to see him play for an NFL team.
