Am I in the minority here or does Hurney pull the IR trigger way faster than Gettleman did?

 

Yes, yes he does.

Hard to say without knowing the details of the injury. I wouldn't be surprised if it wasn't a joint decision with the coaching staff. Everyone knew he was a pretty raw prospect and he'd only played 9 snaps all season. Just give the guy a full redshirt season and try to use the roster spot on a guy who can contribute now.

Speaking of which... why is Colin Jones on the roster? Coleman gets hurt and we sign a safety out of free agency plus IR a 3rd round rookie DE so that we can elevate a PS safety to the active roster. It's obvious we don't want him seeing the field if at all possible, so why is he here?

He definitely does, but I don't know if that is a good thing or a bad thing. We did kind of need the roster spot for a safety and with Cox on the active roster and healthy there wasn't much opportunity for Hall to play.

Colin Jones is the single greatest special teams player of all time, didn’t you know?

Some of the painful truths of our roster coming to light.  Our DEs are not spring chickens.  We need to get replacements and soon so that hurts for Hall to lose those reps this year.  Safety has been stopgapped for awhile, an investment needs to be made there soon as well.

Special teams what?

1. 95% of kickoffs result in a touchback.

2. He's never blocked a FG.

3. [I dont have stats to back this up] But there can't be many teams with a worse punt return unit than ours.

4. That just leaves punt coverage. Does he really shine enough during those 4 plays per game (minus fair-catches) to take up a roster spot?

Everyone says "special teams", but Im still not entirely sure what he does well.
