Brains & Speed with enough punching power overcomes braun & stupidity of the ear bitter

They said the same thing about George Foreman Punching aweness , man i saw him destroy Frazier so fast at Nassau Coliseum, when he lost to Ali I was amazed and happy, Ali just adapted to beat his style

amazing thing is, he joked around to much in early rounds when lost first fight to Frazier, yet Frazier ended up in hospital for longer than ali if remember right

Ali Also lost what probably would have been peak years of speed & punch according to historians when he was exiled from the sport

A very well written post Barry, especially the 2 lines that I bolded in Colts Horseshoe Blue. Yes absolutely, speed, intellect, & knowing when to strike your opponent/wear them down psychologically is far more important than braun & sheer power. Also, Ali's strong beliefs in the Nation Of Islam falsely got him labeled a rebel/trouble maker, which in turn, cut his professional boxing career short. A tragedy IMHO.

That, draft dodger accusation Vs conscientious objector is also parts of what I refer to in bold above as the exile years where he was hitting peak stride in combo & speed that we never got to see, then the wars with frazier esp but others too after that missing period slowly took something of of wjhat he had left away

another analogy Peytons arm strength this year and his balls fluttering as many a wwriter said early on especially , YET the balls still get there in tight spots and plenty catchable as his mind dissects the D

Re Holiday

But what Holliday also has is what scouts call "long speed." As in he isn't just fast for 40 yards, or 50, or even 60. No, Holliday is as fast as the field is long.

one of the fastest 40-yard dashes in combine history — electronically timed at 4.29 seconds — which is tied with several players as the third fastest since electronic timing was first used in 1999.

Holliday was tough enough to have been a running back at LSU.

Yes Barry, Peyton Manning looks fantastic! The ball gets in the hands of the open TE or WR & #18 can still slice up opposing secondary's with the best QB's out there today. Yup, Ali being labeled a draft dodger did contribute to many people viewing his as a controversial figure early in his boxing career. So infuriating & so tragic at the same time IMO. Ali's daughter Ali Laila is a pretty good female boxer I hear too. A chip off the old block. haha

    • Yes. Things were pretty thin towards the end for sure.
    • He's had a whopping 9 carries? I'm not saying he has recovered from MCL and ACL tears in his knee about half way through 2014. He obviously wasn't healthy w/Jets last year. If he gets back close to a 100% he's immediately the 2nd best back on our roster.    He's almost 2yrs removed from the injury  if he's going to bounce back this is the year. I like the signing lets get an up close look before teams cut to 53. I think it says more about our current back ups more than anything else. 
    • Yep. And yes its preseason, but mark my words. Judon is going to be a very good EDGE rusher for Baltimore. I wanted him so bad. Had him in almost all my mock drafts in the 5th-6th range. Lets hope Grigson was right for taking Haeg, Morrison, etc. I don't remember what round they all went, but I know Judon was available when at least 1 of those 2 were picked. But yeah. I think Judon will end up being a double digit sack EDGE rusher by his 2nd or 3rd season.
    • The way you rate the O-Line, it appears other teams are salivating to pad up their sack totals.  Rightfully so, we simply are a * poor team lately, we are not very good.  Luck needs to invest on some of his money to get protective gear so he won't be like a punching bag machine...Another bad year, so what's new year right?
    • Anybody think Kap is doing this to get released?  Its the most logical answer, or he's simply a nit-wit. ok, he's a nit-wit.

    • Hello Colts Nation   I am a long time reader of this forum but never really participated in comments but hope to join in this season.   Been a Colts fan since the 'move' when i lived in Carmel.  Actually liked the Colts before that when i was younger but it was the uniform that appealed to me.    I am wondering how do I start a topic in a forum?  Do I have to have so many replies before approved?  I tried to find the rules topic on this but no luck.   Thanks   Edit: I finally found the section on the rules to posting.  :-)
