Davis had a game

21 posts in this topic

Solid day! Some great open field tackles, including that one on Johnson where he form tackled him right at the knees and sent Johnson face down. Same drive (early Q4) he broke up the 3rd down fade to force a FG. I think he's starting to come around and be the corner we traded for.

He did have an awesome game but he should've caught that pick. I believe our dbs are allergic to big plays

the one in the end-zone, absolutley has to make that play, that would have negated the field goal.

Yeah he is starting to show why we made the trade. What I really like is he doesn't give up many yards after the catch, for the most part he makes the tackle the instant the ball is caught, and really good in run support. He definetly makes a difference when he's in the game. Love the shoe top tackles, that flips the ball carrier, much like Bob Sanders used to do. Feeling better about the trade, with each game he plays. Wish he could have held onto the ball in the endzone, but it will come.

Ahh Bobby Sanders. If he could stay healthy he would've been one of the greatest. Dude always made a play when you needed one

Honestly the DBs did in general. They started off very slow in the first half with Britt having his way with them but I watched Vaughn get burned on the exact same play three times and thought just jump the route and sure enough that's exactly what he did on the pick six on the exact same play. Butler got an INT late in the game that helped seal up the win. However Davis was all over the field making plays along with Bethea and Lefeged. I think this was the best Bethea has locked in the 3-4 so maybe he is finally catching on to the 3-4. I think we finally got a chance to see what the Colts thought they were getting in Davis. He could do a little better in coverage but frankly in the NFL today good coverage is more of a product of good pass rush than your DBs and that's something we have to improve.

davis was well worth a 2nd round pick and the only reason the dolphins traded him to us was because they thought we would have a top 5 pick.

Davis looked really good yesterday for the entire game. Vaughn was getting abused in the first half but then had an excellent second half. Butler looked solid as well. It was actually a very good game for the dbs and the defense in general.

I've actually liked Vontae the whole season and liked the trade for him. I think it is really starting to come together for him. Once Pagano is back and can get more time with him, I think he has the potential to be one of the best CBs in the league.

The only bad play I saw from Davis was the pass to Kenny Britt who one handed it.

Great throw & catch, there was nothing Vontae could have done.

From what I have seen with the DBs, they watch the receiver and not the QB. That is why they look lost, like when Cassius and Butler made their INTs, they were watching the QB and his eyes rather than the receiver.

He also had all 3 of our tackles for a loss and only recorded sack.

Davis also had a great play where he poked the ball away from the reciever made ABSOLUTELY not contact and was called for pass interference. Stupid refs - can we get the replacement refs back ;)

Other than Revis , all these good CB's get burned a bit here and there. The WR's are just too big , fast and athletic to not catch some passes.

No idea what the mocks look like right now, but we're currently in line for the 25th pick. I doubt Rhodes will be available that late.

Mocks are kinda crazy at this point, but I agree...but it would be nice.

Arians said today that he lost the ball in the lights... a few more home games and he should get used to them

      Hey Andrew I saw your ranking in the top 100 players of last year.... We together are about to take the 9 off the front of that number. And make us both top 10 next year. PEOPLE BETTER RECOGNIZE!!!!! 
    • Something no one is talking about
      Again tell me where his tape is?
    • Something no one is talking about
      I'll give you the same quote I gave the other guy:     “We’ve been interested in Patrick since early in free agency and we’re glad it finally came together,” said Colts general manager Ryan Grigson, per Colts.com::   We have some strong ties on our coaching staff with him so that familiarity is always a plus. He is a versatile, experienced and steady corner that gives us immediate help opposite Vontae [Davis]. He was a fit on a number of levels in regards to overall skill, but also adds some strong intangibles. We’re happy with this addition to our team.     Notice the IMMEDIATE help opposite Vontae part.  You don't use that type of language if you view him as something other than a starter.  If they didn't view him as the guy then they would start talking about competition like they always do.
    • Something no one is talking about
      You've barely even seen Smith play and you concocted that how?     I like Smith, but he spent all of training camp being burnt so how you think he already projects better to the outside than Robinson I'm waiting on that answer.  They are both the same exact height.  Actually I think Robinson may be taller.   Again my argument is not whether I think he is an inside or an outside guy.  My argument is they absolutely did not bring him here with the main intention of getting a nickel corner out of the deal.    You don't get rid of Toler and replace him with a guy you think is purely limited to being a nickel corner.   It's very obvious from their words they intend for him to play outside and they believe he can play outside.  I didn't gather one shred of evidence from Grigson or Pagano that says "We Brought Pat Here To Play Nickel Corner For Us".  No they bought him here to replace Toler.
    • Something no one is talking about
      And by the way what tape are you watching because there ain't much tape on Patrick Robinson on the net to be honest. It's restricted to old highlight films from the Saints. That's about it.

      When I first saw this thread, I thought I was late to the party, but then I saw that this thread has been going since 2012.   I'm still late to the party, but story of my life.  I joined in 2015, but have been a Colts fan since I was a kid.   My first Colts memory is getting a hat signed by Quentin Coryatt at training camp, and that same year almost going to the SB.   My favorite Colts memory is beating the Pats to get to the SB in 2006.   Favorite Colts:   1. Peyton Manning 2. Marvin Harrison 3. Reggie Wayne 4. Dallas Clark 5. Brandon Stokely   Needless to say, Peyton (#1) and everyone he threw the ball to (#2-5) won me many, many fantasy football games, and are my guys for eternity.   You might assume from my top 5 Colts that I am a "new-age" "fairweather" fan who only likes offense and points.  You are wrong.  I am grateful for the offensive Renaissance in Indy, but Defense is my passion.  My secret top 5 Colts: Bob Sanders, Dwight Freeney, Robert Mathis, Cato June, Gary Brackett.   I want Henry Anderson to help lead a Defensive Renaissance in Indy.  Luck and TY are great, and I hope the OLine is outstanding, but the D is the Key.

      Hey guys,   I have been posting for probably a year or so now.  I reside in Brazil, IN, which is about 20 minutes East of Terre Haute on I-70.  I'm 28 years old and have been a Colts fan since Harbaugh days, but really started following and rooting hard for them after they drafted Manning in 98.  I love our team and my family and I make sure we are ready to rock for every game.  We always have viewing parties at my father-in-laws or my house and are known to holler and scream at the TV!  Hope all is well with all of you, and GO COLTS!
