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

    • Joe Philbin..
      I'm just going to take the wait and see approach. I have no confidence at all in the Colts brass at this point when it comes to the O Line. I'm not sold on Philbin either

      Move Okine to OLB, it seems like he's been training to switch positions this year.

      I'd like to see an upgrade (from your list) at eithe TE or WR. And also LB.  maybe RB and CB too. I like Doyle but a better impact type #2 TE would make me feel better.  Our receivers are young and smallish. i don't mean #1 quality, but an upgrade at depth.  Maybe the practice squad will accomplish this. But I think I'm most excited about the potential improvement at OL.
    • Antonio Morrison signed
      Burfict was also a guy in college people said did his own thing and didn't play assignment football. Ran through the wrong gaps and all that jazz.  Things can change.
    • TJ Green/Blythe
      How many times do people have to get told that Green will mostly be playing Dime and Nickel linebacker this year?  If Geathers can do that role I'm quite sure Green can as well.  Between that and special teams Green will get plenty of playing time this year.  He'll do everything and probably a little more than what Geathers did last year which wasn't real complicated.  I'm confident he'll be fine in that role.     I could see if they were throwing him to the wolves as the starting Safety next to Geathers and saying "Good Luck Buddy!"  They are giving him a role he can perform well with to get experience while learning behind Adams and Geathers until next season. Plus he'll get plenty of work on special teams as well.  However I do think an injury here or there is likely to happen this year so he may get thrown in the fire quicker than planned.
