I think Guy or Geathers should get the start, Matthews has provided pass rush from the interior at times but has not done good holding his ground and collapsing the pocket and setting the edge, Thats a fairly big blow that Moala is out for the year

It is unfortunate that Moala is out because he seems to be a good fit as a DE in a 3-4. I recall Nevis making some plays too. But Ricardo Mathews is a guy with an intense motor, so I could see him making a few plays.
When Bob Sanders executes a push up, he does not push himself up. He pushes the world down.
When Bob Sanders was 12, a cobra bit him in the leg. After 4 days of excruciating pain, the cobra died.
Tom Brady can throw a football pretty far. Bob Sanders can throw Tom Brady even farther.

Huge loss. He was actually really effective in the new 3/4 as a DE. Mathews will have to step up.

I absolutely see the Colts re-signing Moala and bringing him back next year.

Not only has he demonstrated he can play effectively within the system, his value has now dropped due to the injury, so his price shouldn't be unreasonable. He's good, and we can afford him. Bring Fili back! :thmup:

unfortunate for him...he finally got to play in a system he was probably more suited for in the first place

we were really coming along to build a solid d-line with redding and moala and solid depth all around. We will definitely lose a step in the run game without him but hopefully not too big of a step

after freeman moala has been the best defensive player on the team. moala has been great at setting the edge and stopping the run, were really gonna miss his athleticism on the defensive line.

This is a huge loss or us he had been playing great in the 3/4 and had become a very good run stopper for us.
Thank You Peyton! I look forward to the day you come home and we get to do this good bye thing right!

That stinks. Moala was really starting to become a solid DE too.

Hopefully he can come back strong next season along with Nevis.

I am intrigued to see that Geathers guy and what his long arms can bring to the table. :)


Me too! I keep hoping to see that he is progressing. With the size and ability that enormous body has, if he can get his head right, he could be amazing! He's quietly been there helping out, maybe he starts to emerge soon. I am like you though, I am interested to see him do well.

I would say Redding and/or Mathis. What would be your choice?

Htown abd superbowl Im right there with you on Richardson. The guy is truly relentless, alwsys plays hard and is so disruptive. Great at using his hands too.

Those 2 are definitely before Moala.

I'd also say Bethea. Even though this isn't his best year, he's still performing well.

When I look at our IR List, all I can do is ask myself "What If these players weren't on IR"

Just imagine Luck throwing to Collie & Whalen too. Imagine having Big Mckinney, Nevis & Chapman out there disrupting things

*Sigh* It's a shame how we have no idea what our team looks like completely Healthy. And with Collie probably being Released in the Off-Season, guess we've heard the last of "Luck to Collie" smh :(

    When I look at the news all I see is sadness, sickness, and complete and utter stupidity. I think I might sign up for the first flight to Mars.
