Fili Moala out for year (merge)

61 posts in this topic

Relying on the depth on D-line and LBs has worked out better than I thought so far. Maybe more hungry guys getting a chance might not be a bad thing. But Fili was getting into his element in this D as a DE.

darn, I actually liked the way he had been performing as of late.

Well, it's now up to Drake Nevis to fill those shoes.

This is another Big Loss for the Colts. Moala has been playing very well.

In our Thursday night game, Mike Mayock commented he thought this was Moala's best season in the NFL and that he had worked very hard to become a 3-4 DL after all his years as a 4-3. Props to Fili for coming so far. Sorry for the injury.

Need to find a way to overcome.

Next. Man. UP!!

Yeah, I believe Mayock when he says that.

Since we dont play a 1-gap 3-4, pass rush is not something expected too much out of our 3-4 DE. That is why I feel, with Frathis out there, Rico Mathews (who was another hit-and-miss 1-gap DL in our former 4-3 like Moala) can be a good run stopper. I am intrigued to see that Geathers guy and what his long arms can bring to the table. :)

Dang that sucks bigtime.

At least we'll see what Vontae can do against Megatron! Here's hoping.....probably too much.

This sucks...Moala was really starting to perform well under this new defensive scheme.

I still say if 3-4 DE Sheldon Richardson is available in the 1st round next year we should get him. Having a good DL will do wonders in making this 3-4 defense great.

Fili Moala - DL - Colts

Colts DT Fili Moala suffered a torn right ACL in Indianapolis' Week 12 win over the Bills, and is done for the season.

Moala went down late Sunday. It's a big blow for the Colts' shaky run defense, though they have a pair of potential replacements in Martin Tevaseu and Josh Chapman. Moala had been battling knee issues all season, and missed three of the Colts' first 11 games. Making $615,000 in the final year of his rookie deal, Moala will be up against it to be ready for camp next summer.

Richardson is the guy I been eyeing all year. this guy is a man amongst boys on the Dline even in the SEC.

See now, I didn't know that. Must have missed it. Thanks for telling me.

So, I guess it's now up to Riccardo Matthews.

Big loss. Liked Moala' presence on our D line this year. Nevis is already out. Our d line depth is getting thinner and thinner.

Im guessing we will be seeing Matthews in on passing downs, and Chapman in on running downs. Chapman is a NT, but he is size wise a 3-4 end. Too bad Nevis went on IR, unless im mistaken, wasn't it a hand injury?

So we got Geathers, Guy and Mathews. I am sure they will bring another guy from outside because there is no D lineman on PS.

What sucks is that he could (and probably will) miss the beginning of training camp.

Even if he has a speedy recovery, he'll only be back in the middle of July, which means he'd miss OTA's and workouts on top of being out of shape for the start of training camp.

This is a really bad break for him.

Didn't AP tear his ACL around the end of last season, and made it back in time for this season to start? Pretty sure he hasn't missed a beat...

This sucks. I was really impressed by how Moala turned things around...I really hope we re-sign him in the offseason.

I'm glad to see the Colts fans outside of the bozos at Stampedeblue realize that this is a big loss for us.

Next man up, and a speedy recovery for the Moala bear!

He is a free agent at the end of the season.I don't see the Colts re-signing him.

Nevis is on IR as well. He went on IR the same time as Powers.

Why wouldn't we? He's a returning starter, was playing well for us, and won't cost much to re-sign.

He tore it a few weeks later from now, but he missed all of training camp and preseason. His first game was Week 1.

I said that Moala is/would probably going to miss the majority of training camp. He's not AP, where he could miss and know he'll get his starting spot back. Plus Moala's a free agent.

Plus, AP recovered the fastest way possible and made it back only in week 1. As stated in one of my earlier posts, if Moala recovers like AP, he'll be back by the end of training camp.

For Fili, it definitely is a shame. For us, it hurts this year. For the future, if anything, it lets us bring him back cheaper.

I think the fact he wont be ready for a long while will have a lot to do with it. People want to point to Adrian Peterson when talking about ACL injuries, I assure you there a million players who never play the same again to every one that recovers that fast.

On the bright side, we can re-sign him for cheap this offseason.....

I'm not quite as impressed with his game this year, but he has been more effective than years past.

You can say the same about Jerraud Powers too. :)

What is it with the Polian draft picks from 2009? Moala, Powers, Collie - rounds 2 through 4 all on IR

2010 - Ijalana, Nevis - rounds 2 and 3 on IR, who is next, Delone Carter???

I don't know if these guys were injury prone in college, but Polian sure did have a knack.

Either that or it's the strength and conditioning coaches. I just don't get how we're consistently so beat up.

I'd get them away from 56th St. and get them literally chopping wood like the lumberjacks and carrying them. Maybe that will help, LOL :).

Fili has been adapting very well to this D. His play has been at least Good and makes him someone to bring back.

Mathews is just not very good and it will show quickly. A pretty big loss for the D.

I felt like moala has really been solid this year opposite Redding. I was looking forward to those two with Chapman.

I hope he comes back next year

    • Right now, maybe half of the top 15 (or so) interior defensive lineman are 6'1 or less and about 300 lbs or less and arm lenght of around 32 inches (Donald, Atkins, Casey, Daniels, Jarrett/Kyle Williams). Only Donald was a day one 1 pick or drafted in the first two rounds. Casey went in the 3rd round. No one else was picked in the top 100. I don't think there is an other position were so many top players share similar trait and most of them were picked late in the draft.   Are teams that afraid of having a small team that they automatically give worse grade for smaller defensive lineman? If Aaron Donald, for example, had Geno Atkins besides him instead of Michael Brockers, would that line be as effective as one would expect just from the player talent level upgrade from Brockers to Atkins or even worse? I mean, Brockers is a good player but Atkins is on another level. And individually these players are great but would they work as well together on the same line? Not sure if it's as much about the size itself as these players can use it to their advantage in quickness and leverage but maybe two dlineman with short arms would create some issues?   Just wondering why so many of them have fallen late in the draft. I understand that some teams want bigger, physical players (like BB, Parcells etc) but what about those teams that had already gotten steals later in the draft with small interior lineman would jump at the chance to select a player who had great tape and showed similar traits as their best defensive player. Like Grady Jarrett in 2015. Both the Bengals and Titans drafted a dlinemen in the 4th, Jarrett went with first pick in the 5th round Bengals pick was actually two picks before Jarrett was taken.   Though the Bengals did take Billings last year and he might be next to Atkins but he was another 4th round pick. And Titans did draft Mike Martin to be their nose tackle a year after taking Casey but he didn't pan out. And I maybe haven't looked at closely enough at bust/success rate for smaller defensive lineman so these guys could be sort of outliers and teams just missed on these guys for other reasons.    
    • Also for retrospect on this list: Dan Marino--Mark Clayton & Jim Kelly--Andre Reed were snubbed.  Can you think of others that should be on here in place of someone else?
    • http://newarena.com/nfl/ranked-the-top-24-qb-wr-duos-of-all-time/7/?amxt=fbdesktop2   11. Peyton Manning/Reggie Wayne: Indianapolis Colts   In the post Marvin Harrison era, Wayne took the torch as being Manning’s go-to target. During his 14-year career with the Colts, Wayne had eight seasons with at least 1,000 yards receiving. He also managed to haul in 82 touchdowns during this time period. Manning’s resume has been chronicled ad nauseam. He is the all-time leader in passing yards (71,940), and is consistently mentioned as one of the best to ever throw a football in the history of the sport.   2. Peyton Manning/Marvin Harrison: Indianapolis Colts   The respective skill-sets of Manning and Harrison worked perfectly with one another. Manning’s unbelievable timing on throws was predicated greatly by Harrison’s ability to separate in coverage. One of the best technical receivers in league history, Harrison’s route-running capabilities led him to become an 8-time Pro Bowler and a 3-time First-team All-Pro. He also led the league in receiving yards twice with Manning under center. 114 of Manning’s 539 touchdowns throws went to Harrison. This statistic is simply mind-boggling — and further validates a top-three standing.   ( Jerry Rice also got mentioned 2 times.  #3 with Steve Young, and #1 with Joe Montana.)
    • A passing league now. You could say the same of probably 10 other WRs in the league right now. Marv did it in a very different league.    Not taking away from it, he's a Pro Bowl player.
    • This is why you need a well rounded team.  No matter how good 1,2, or 5 players play, it takes an entire team to win games.  Every aspect of the team thrives or wither off the success AND failures of other aspects.

    •   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!
