Freeney at it Again

10 posts in this topic

Freeney against the Lions:

"For the second week in a row, Dwight Freeney reminded us all of just how good he can be on his day. Proving that sacks aren’t everything, the pass rusher finished the game with six total pressures, equalling last week for his most pressure filled performance of the season. His hit and five hurries, all from the right side, on 34 snaps as a pass rusher gave him a Pass Rushing Productivity (PRP) Rating of 13.2. He made just the one tackle from his 22 plays against the run but it was at least for a defensive stop. It was as a pass rusher than he excelled though, making life miserable for Jeff Backus all game long. On 3rd-and-10 with 8:51 left in the game he beat the left tackle to the outside right from the snap, chasing quarterback Matt Stafford out of the pocket and forcing the incompletion." - Pro Football Focus

I am disappointed with his sack numbers this year, but as the article pointed out sacks are not all that should be considered.

but wait Freeney hasn't done anything. He is a pass rusher with only a very few sacks. He's not doing his job, we should cut him. . . . (sarcasm off)

Nice find. It's amazing that even though our players may not have the greatest stats, yet they are doing things that win us games. . . .That could be said about alot of our players. . . .yes even our qb!

I wish Colts would keep Freeney next year. He is a little slower than Mathis in getting used to the new defense but he is coming along. Let's not forget he was slowed down by that injury suffered in Chicago. I get the sense that he's been getting back in game shape after injury for the last couple of games.

I thought there were a couple of ridiculous holds on Freeney. Why is it they hate to call holds against Freeney ?

its amazing what a healthy ankle can do. you can tell his ankle is fine now because his pressures and hits drastically went up over the past 3-4 weeks minus the Patriots game because Brady was getting rid of the ball in 2 seconds, you can do that without an offensive line

The only issue I have is he is a liability against the run, ya wanna run the ball? Oh look Freeney is on the field lets run at him, Also I know pressures are great but sack numbers just arent there in 10 games and thats what he is being paid 14 million dollar for. I might bring him back but only for pass rush situations as a rotational guy

i love the way freeney will go all out chasing a qb clear across the field, you see a lot of defensive linemen lollygag at a certain point....

only fans look at sack numbers...Dwight isnt god against the run...but like gavin says/....I'm okay with other teams running at him...

he still influences what they do..

I hope he accepts the fact that he's a situational player and comes back next season for a 'hometown' discount.

He is a Colts icon....and if we make the playoffs..I want him back to go for it again

I would love to welcome Freeney back.

But unfortunately I just don't think the numbers will be there for him to come back for a very low cost.

He will want to go somewhere more comfortable for his playing style

    • Well I wouldn't say that hit to jar the ball last night was a whiff... They have the main culprits that throw their bodies around and hope they make a tackle like Butler and Melvin sometimes but the talent is slowly fixing that problem as they get better players through free agency and the draft.
    •   And that's fine. I wasn't attacking you for being excited about a player. I'm excited about him too. Just didn't want people to get ahead of themselves about him after 1 week of camp.    Im glad to see him do well in game time and hope it continues. But no I haven't seen enough yet. He had 5 carries today. If he can do the same over several weeks in regular season action, then I'll have seen enough and hop off the fence I'm currently sitting on.   Can we have an end to this pointless argument now? He had 5 good carries, you made your point.
    •   Maybe, but my bet is Bug Howard. Huge guy, showed good hands and physicality. Moncrief is quite injury prone, they need an X / possession type guy more than such a small speedster.
    • The Colts are getting better on defense. Oh, maybe not getting good at that "tackle" thingy just yet, but they have absolutely perfected the "whiff" move. It was pure poetry in motion last night. There was magic in the air, and the Colts spent most of the night grabbing the magic. They just weren't grabbing anything that resembled a ball carrier. 
    • I'll give you Mingo with the forced fumble this game. Simon was just in the right place at the right time with the INT in game 1, I disagree there. I don't remember how Sheard did in the first game, but he was pretty bad last night against the Cowboys. So you are half right IMO, and that's if Sheard had a big first game, and I can't remember because I didn't see that one cause of where I live.
