51 posts in this topic

Dear Lord, Tim Jennings is playing awesome ball this year. Perfect example.

I want Asomugha, darnit.

As much as I would like nnamdi to be a colt, he needs to be a FA first,which I sure as heck would want to happen

The discussion is based on an article published recently, suggesting the Nmamdi is probably on his way out in Philly... http://m.nfl.com/news/0ap1000000094857/

I know; I started this thread, I just wanted to find out what everyone thought if he was cut, but I didn't want to get everybodys hopes up in case he wasn't released or he didn't sign with us

Alright, first of all can someone tell me what this page said.....didn't load for me.

Secondly, Asomugha has not sucked in Philly. This idea is based off of last year in which he was forced to play in an cushiony zone coverage. This year they went to a man coverage scheme and he's been the very definition of a shutdown corner. I have watched 3 or 4 Philly games this year, and he is simply not being thrown at. The guy is the best press corner in all of football and it is evidenced by the fact that he plays press coverage on 95% of his downs. He might not get a lot of picks, but press corners don't get picks, they just shut down the WR they are up against. I don't know what the article is suggesting, but I would personally pay 8 million a year of my own money for him to rock the horseshoe.

Basically the article said that asomugha might need to take a pay cut in order to remain of the eagles roster, I started this thread to see what everybody felt about picking nnamdi up if he was released.

Half of us here tend to forget that going into a new system changes the player, IE Tim Jennings.

Nnamdi plays best in man to man, which is what we run now.

I would LOVE to see what he could do.

Tim Jennings was mediocre and couldn`t stay healthy, Period.

Next years hypothetical pickups? bla bla bla bla bla bla

If Reid is fired, the GM will realize that that defense might change to man coverage and not release Asomugha. Just wanted to point that out.

I'd take him though if he's available but then I wonder who we would put at nickel with a starting lineup of Davis, Asomugha, and Butler. Butler doesn't seem like a strong tackler and Asomugha isn't either, I wouldn't want either of them playing the slot or a tight end in the nickel. Plus our corners seem to be relied on in run support and tackling receivers on underneath routes.

    •   Not only wouldn't they win a Super Bowl,  they wouldn't make the playoffs.   They'd likely struggle to win 8 games.   There's no short-cut for experience.     Not even great talent....  
    • Me too! I think speed, quickness and good hands ought to work. I wonder if he can block in pass pro?
    • What about a rookies/sophomores team combo? That might be a much better chance at winning the Super Bowl.   QB - Carson Wentz, Dak Prescott RB - Ezekiel Elliott, Jordan Howard RB/FB - Leonard Fournette TE - Hunter Henry, OJ Howard, Evan Engram WR - Michael Thomas, Corey Davis, Tyreke Hill, Christian MaCaffrey OT - Jack Conklin, Ronnie Staley, Laremy Tunsil, Taylor Decker OG - Cody Whitehair, Forrest Lamp C - Ryan Kelly, Nick Martin   DE - Myles Garrett DT - Joey Bosa DT - DeForest Buckner DE - Soloman Thomas   OLB - Noah Spence, Yannick Ngakoue ILB - Haason Reddick, Reuben Foster OLB - Deion Jones, Darron Lee   CB - Jalen Ramsey, Vernon Hargraves Jr, Artie Burns SS - Keanu Neal, Karl Joseph, Jabrill Peppers FS - Jamal Adams, Malik Hooker   K - Rigoberto Sanchez P - Austin Rekhow
    • I wouldn't call protecting your kid as coddling with over 300,000 brain injuries in the US every year. I guess those 300,000 unlikely injuries didn't happen?
    •   Haven't seen the video, nor am I any good at determining injuries from them (Dr. Chao is quite good at it though...)   I never heard, then or up until and including now, concerning vasculature or neuro issues.  That indicated to me back then, and still does today, that TB could regain his starting QB job   But a QB competition could serve them both well.at some point in time .  But lets be real.  TB is still not recovered... when he does he will not be 'as good as new'.  But agree he could be quite nice anyway. And... he will have to earn (beat out Sam) his QB job back.  It won't be handed to him on a platter, trust me.

    •   Sorry to keep harping on the Irish thing, but did you know the horseshoe has seven points on it?  (The Colts horseshoe, anyway.  Actual shoes for horses depend on the farrier).   Seven is considered a lucky number...  Lucky.  Luck.  I'm telling you, you picked the right team to root for.   7    
    •   Don't hold Boston against the Irish.  It's not our fault.    We love our green, which makes Indiana a tearmann.   I love it that you chose to root for an underdog instead of the Pats.  I don't think it's coincidence that you became a fan around the time Luck got drafted to the Colts.  That's providence.     Horseshoe?  Luck?  Four-leaf clover?  Come on.  Hoosier Hospitality has roots in Irish fun-lovery.  If you're lucky enough to be Irish, you're lucky enough!  May the luck of the Irish be with you!
