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.

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.

    • Colts will rely on the draft instead of being big free-agent spenders
      There's a BIG difference between activating someone for practice and that person being ready to play in a game. Because of the way the Bills handled McGahee, we can't know when he would have actually been ready to suit up; they chose to keep him on the roster so that he could continue to rehab, but I would suggest that he wasn't ready to play, probably wasn't close, and wouldn't have been able to play even if they weren't being extra cautious with him. That's complete speculation on my part, but I don't think his 10+ months from injury to activation was the same as Gurley's 10+ months.   I still think even 10 months is ambitious for Smith. It could happen, I just wouldn't count on it. I think 8 months is way ridiculous.
    • Your draft flyer
      Parker Ehinger, OG, Cincinnati. IMO he is a top 100 player that just isn't getting the rave at the moment. I wouldn't doubt it if you hear his name in the upcoming weeks leading into the draft.
    • Team chemistry
      yah this is exactly the reason i was not thrilled about Irsay bringing back Pags and Grigs together because clearly they have had there differences in the past and dont always see eye to eye, and this could be a lingering issue. It does seem like Irsay has implemented some new standards and im sure there are some rules that have been established between the two of them that we didnt hear about. Im hoping with these new contracts is kind of like a clean slate for both parties and they develop some cohesiveness and bring home a couple superbowls because not many teams have the luxury of being set at QB.

      Let's look at Todd Gurley.  He was hurt Nov 15, 2014 and made the field Sept. 27, 2015.  316 days, no reported setbacks.  If Jaylon makes it back about the same recovery time frame from his injury, he will hit the field November 20, 2016.  319 days.  Week 11 in 2016 schedule.  McGahee was activated week 10 in 2003.  They just didn't suit him up and risk bringing him along too quick.  They kept him active in practice, no games.  My point is if one claims someones injury was a lot worse, they need to back it with supporting evidence.  My research tends to refute that claim.   But we don't know if Smith can rehab quicker, slower, or the same as Gurley.  It is unknown.  And Gurley had a clean ACL only injury, which some people would says was less serious than Jaylon Smith's injury.  It's a risk for certain.
