Freeney at it Again

Recommended Posts

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

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 he had possession more than long enough that call was nonsense.
    •   If you think GMs don't have records, then I don't know what to tell you....   And the last paragraph is so you it's scary...    not only do I not have any idea what you're talking about, it appears you don't either...   Look everyone is entitled to their own opinion, but that doesn't make it right.  2 plus 2 equals 4.    It doesn't equal whatever you think it does.    You can cling to your own beliefs all you want.   They're yours.   But that doesn't make them right.   I was hoping you could explain your original post.    But the explanation was just just as bizarre.    So we will just have to agree to disagree.    
    • not love for him   just insane to say this dude is better because he is "taller"   but then again you are a colts fan.  being tall is all that matters to you guys.  
    • We are just trying to fill starting spots for the final two games then the roster likely gets overhauled again.
    •   @BPindy @Lucky Colts Fan @IndyD4U @Bluefire4 @Btown_Colt @Coltman51 @chad72   Here are the remaining trophies   King of the Hill (longest win streak): Team Trueblood, for 5 wins in a row 2008 Detroit Lions (Longest losing streak): Axel F, for 5 losses in a row Red Cross Award (Most injuries): Team Hulce, with 9 injuries.
