Oh Freeney had his best game this year if you ask me. Freeney knocked Fitzpatrick to the ground twice and was directly responsible for the interception by zbikowski "With Ryan Fitzpatrick cocked to throw he was hit by Dwight Freeney which turned him around and took all of the power from the pass and caused it to die a good 5 yards short of Johnson’s route — right into the waiting arms of Tom Zbikowski, who set off on a return." He also recorded four hurries. and he had the highest pass rushing grade sunday according to Pro Football Focus

I figured it'd be a matter of time before he showed out. I think he'll continue to play well. I think he wants to be back in Indy again next year

If he puts a string of games together and winds up with a few sacks in the process then I could see him being signed beyond this year which in turn would eliminate the need to go pass rusher early but thats all thinking ahead, if he is healthy I could see that happening but I wonder how healthy he is, I seriously doubt anything close to 100 percent

Everything he's said indicates he wants to stay. And he was on Cowherd this morning praising his teammates and coaches and talking about how great it is to be a part of this team. I do think he wants to stay. But I think the money he gets offered will mean him leaving after this year.

Yeah Agreed. But hopefully he sees it how Reggie did, forget the Money... it's about the Team. I don't think we offered Reggie that much & even if we did... he's outplayed his Contract this Season hands down. But it's gonna be Freeney's choice if he accepts the Money or Not. I hope he does. I at least want him, Mathis & Wayne to retire as Colts since I can't get Peyton, Saturday, & Clark to do it

If Andrew is the brain of the team Reggie is heart of the team. On top of his receiving, his blocking has been very good too. On one of the pick 6's against the Pats when he was targeted he was also the last man to try and make the tackle. Some WRs would just stop and give up. Not Reggie.

I'm hoping Freeney is finally getting healthy. We need the Freeney of old to get into the playoffs.

Back on topic the run D has been getting better each game, or so it seems to the naked eye. Well up front anyway, I still have concerns about Zbikowski.

Wasn't zbikowski baiting the QB? He was limping around a little and then jumped it like he wasn't even hurt...?

    • Cam Newton walks out of post SB interview
      Personally I think what Cam did was hilarious and it's no different than his celebrations and his temper tantrum in the end zone when the ref didn't throw a flag on a clean hit.   And I don't think Cam will "learn from it" or grow because of it.  I think just the opposite in fact, I think this will have ruined him as a QB, he still has a lot of physical tools so he wills tick around for a while but he's going to become another Jake Cutler, Tony Romo type QB.     One thing I've learned in the military and years of coaching and playing is that you either know how to handle diversity or you don't.  And I'm talking about the true definition of diversity.. meaning a range of things, most people think diversity is just when something bad happens but that's not true, diversity applies to large swings, so when something bad happens as well as when something great happens.  And Cam has shown all year that he cannot handle diversity he could not handle it when things were going great and he could not handle it when things went poorly..  Now his teammates know that when the things have gone poorly and the chips are down that Cam will not stick his nose in there and try to make something happen.  Worse yet, deep down inside, Cam knows that now, as well.  Everybody talks about swagger, mojo, etc well Cam lost in that game and I don't think he will ever recover.

    • Ranking the reasons for Denver's Super Bowl 50 upset
      http://espn.go.com/nfl/story/_/id/14734128/ranking-reasons-super-bowl-50-upset-denver-broncos-nfl   A very detailed article by the great Bill Barnwell. Here are the excerpts   101. The Panthers' defense It's tough to swallow when you lose the Super Bowl by 14 points, but the Carolina defense has a lot to be proud of after delivering an exceptional effort Sunday night. While the offense misfired, made ugly mistakes, and left the defense in poor positions, Sean McDermott's unit did everything it could to keep the Panthers in the game. The Panthers didn't collapse until late in the fourth quarter, when a Cam Newton fumble gave the Broncos the ball on the 4-yard line and set Denver up for a game-sealing touchdown. 81. Cam Newton This is the same Newton who clearly played through injuries behind a porous offensive line last year for a Panthers team that was falling rapidly out of playoff contention, the one who rushed back from a car accident to suit up for a 5-8-1 team. The one who screwed up his Florida career so badly that he had to transfer to a junior college before working his way back into becoming the first overall pick. Does anybody really think that a veteran team with Thomas Davis -- who suited up with an arm that looked like a football yesterday -- would get behind a quarterback and treat him like an unquestioned leader if he was a fraud? The idea that Newton is soft or unable to overcome adversity is unsupported by his entire career up to that one play. 60. Peyton Manning You know what, though? If anybody ever deserves to have a playoff game in which he is carried to a victory by his teammates, as Football Outsiders noted, it's Peyton Manning. Peyton had shockingly little support from his teammates in the playoffs early in his career (http://www.footballperspective.com/guest-post-brady-vs-manning-and-playoff-support/) , when the labels which would become unfairly associated with his playoff performance began to take shape. He's still the greatest quarterback in NFL history, and now he has a second ring to cement his legacy as such. 41. Ron Rivera The famously aggressive Rivera also passed up an opportunity to go for two after Carolina's only touchdown, when Talib went offsides on a PAT attempt. The penalty would have given Carolina the chance of converting from the 1-yard line, where they would have had the league's second-best short-yardage rushing attack against the second-worst short-yardage rushing defense. The odds are heavily weighted in favor of converting from a yard out there, to the extent that going for two would have been the obvious move. The Panthers then subsequently ran the clock bizarrely during the end of the first half, with their two-minute drill petering out around midfield. Rivera's one of the league's best in-game tacticians, but that wasn't on display Sunday. 6. Wade Phillips Last time out, the name of the game was coverage. Phillips blitzed less frequently and sent fewer men after the quarterback on pass plays than he had in any game since the 2007 season. This time, Phillips decided to blitz Newton and see what happened. Denver pushed players into the box and sent five or more men on 51 percent of Carolina's pass plays, pressuring Newton on 44.9 percent of his attempts. ESPN Stats & Information notes that Newton was blitzed 25 times, the second-highest total in Super Bowl history, and pressured on 21 of his dropbacks, which is tied for the second-highest figure with a man who had a much happier Sunday, John Elway. 3. Fumble luck Even more important was just how meaningful those fumbles were. The three most valuable fumbles in the game, by far, all went to Denver. That includes the two Miller stripsacks, which resulted in a fumble recovery touchdown and a four-yard drive which produced Denver's other touchdown, as well as the Trevathan recovery of the fumble at the end of T.J. Ward's interception return, which came inside the Denver 10-yard line and would have given the Panthers a first-and-goal situation. The other four recoveries were split evenly and all within 12 yards of midfield. Recovering those three key fumbles was, after accounting for game situation and field position, worth somewhere in the range of 13-14 points for the Broncos. 2. DeMarcus Ware 1. Von Miller After it all, though, the two most impactful players on the field were the same two guys who dominated the AFC Championship Game. I didn't think that Ware and Miller could come up with something to match their career day against the Patriots two weeks ago, but truthfully, they weren't far off. Ware and Miller combined for six of Denver's 13 knockdowns of Newton. This Broncos pass rush has taken things to a new level when Denver needed them most. Their two most productive pass-rushing days in terms of knockdowns have come during the AFC Championship Game (officially 17 knockdowns) and the Super Bowl (13) after never topping 12 knockdowns in a game during the regular season. Miller, in particular, should be in right tackle Mike Remmers' nightmares for weeks. The Carolina right tackle was overmatched by his occasional assignment, and while the Panthers did move him around a bit as part of an unbalanced line, Remmers was obliterated in pass protection. Again per Stats and Info, when Miller came after Newton from the right side of the line, his 16 rush attempts produced four sacks, two fumbles, and just 3.7 yards per play. Ware finished with four knockdowns as part of a 12-hit, three-game postseason. That's as many as Jerry Hughes had all season, and more than the likes of Brian Orakpo, even over a full season.
