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

Um, you did see the 3rd quarter, right?

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.

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.

Wouldnt it be nice to get a big CB to compliment Davis in the draft *cough* Xavier Rhodes!!!! *cough

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

    • Honestly,   I don't think the owners saw this coming.....   Hard for me to say one way or the other if the players did.....      Dunno.....  
    • Colts should be 2-2 after Sunday. 28-17 Colts. If they lose, Pagano should be fired on the spot and Grigson should join him.      
    • Great character guy, no question, full of Colts traits. I wish it would translate to his production on the field. I might be mistaken but with all the decade long complaints on how the Colts defense is soft by default... don't you think that our team would need at least a few guys who are not so nice in private but are cruel beasts on the field?
    • "So, who's the guy?...This is his problem too. You understand that right?...He's not the one who's pregnant. He'd be crapping his pants if he were. He'd find the money if he thought he was gonna swell up like a watermelon...Let's go see him."   "Why didn't you use a condom [Cam]? Or for humanity's sake get a vasectomy? Give us half the money. [Strikes Cam between his legs hard with a hockey stick]. You know, I liked your boyfriend. He's very special. Very charismatic."   "You know, you have a real anger problem. No, no, I don't. I have an caboose hole problem. When people are caboose holes to my granddaughter, I get angry."   "Hi sweetheart, you know there's a world out there that doesn't need to be filled with hate & narrow mindedness. [Pow, right in the kisser. A little girl punches Grandma Elle right in the eye].    I just saw a 2015 drama called "Grandma" about a young 18 yr old woman named Sage [Julia Garner] & her 70 something grandmother named Elle Reid [Lily Tomlin] who needs a huge favor. Sage desperately needs $630 as soon as possible. What for you ask? A car payment? A student loan payment? A gambling debt? Well, let's just say a medical procedure is required. Before I go any further, I must say this. This 1 hour & 19 minute feature film directed by Paul Weitz deals with the issue of terminating a pregnancy as a central theme in this flick.   Relax, I am not here to make any moral declarations about the right to an abortion in this country or speak for or against a woman's decision to bring a child into this world or not. All my audience needs to know is that this storyline revolves around a scared young woman & how her grandmother & mother help Sage raise the funds for the procedure, remind her that she's not going thru this ordeal alone, & come together during this crisis as a family making their bond of love stronger than ever.    Now, don't get it twisted. This movie isn't some cheesy Hallmark channel cinematic exercise in foolish sentimentality okay. As a matter of fact, the reason I like the picture is because the main characters are so messed up & dysfunctional overall. Where do I begin? Well, for starters, Elle is a PH.D. poetry professor living in California who just broke up with her girlfriend Olivia [Judy Greer] who is half her age & has crimson red hair. She actually loves Olivia but she's breaking up with her because Elle is fearful that she is developing deep feelings for her. The reason this new relationship petrifies her so much is because Elle just lost Violent, her romantic partner from cancer over a yr ago & she didn't ever expect to feel that way ever again so Elle is down on her luck & a little depressed right now.    Sage, her only grandchild with curly blond hair, knows on her front door & begs her for a hefty sum of cash in order to get an abortion at a nearby clinic at the end of business that very day. 1 major problem though: Grandma cut up all her credit cards & turned them into a decorative wind chime outside her front door. Wonderful just wonderful. What's there next move? They drive over to her boyfriend's place for a contribution for the procedure. Cam acts like a colossal jerk acting the the child might not be his & then grandma goes into protective bear mode, hits the fool in the family jewels, & takes $50 bucks & some pot from this guy. LOL! My kinda of grandma. Sweet!    Eventually, they go to a coffee shop & later a tattoo parlor where a black woman with a nose ring named Deathy [Laverne Cox] gives Elle an O ink job on her right shoulder & $60 dollars to help Sage out. Next, grandma tries to sell some 1st edition books from her home library at a local cafe. However, she ticks off the owner by telling her that she's a gorilla because she's so darn cheap & treats her employees like indentured servants. Yep, grandma's a real charmer who knows how to make friends & influence people that's for sure. LOL!    Grandma is running out of options now. She decides to drop by Karl's [Sam Elliot] place for $500 dollars. Did I mention that Karl was an old flame of Elle's who never got over the fact that she rejected her marriage proposal to her over 3 decades ago & that she abandoned him on his boat in the middle of the night? Details; details. Sam Elliot has 1 of the coolest deep voices ever heard on the silver screen BTW. He agrees to fork over the dough for 1 last passionate kiss from Elle. But, once he hears from Sage want the $500 is really for, he rejects the offer due to religious reasons.    Only 1 thing left to do: Visit the dragon lady Sage's mother Judy [Marcia Gay Harden] at work. Judy is stern & very demanding & she's not thrilled about the news that her baby is knocked up by the 'rodent' as she calls him. We see that Judy wears the pants in this family & that even King Kong & Godzilla would cower in her presence & run away whimpering like a wounded puppy. After some yelling, Judy gives her daughter the remaining funds for the procedure. Once at the clinic, a ProLife parent & her daughter harass Sage about committing murder. Grandma turns around imploring the little girl to be more understanding & boom the little menace hit Elle in the face. It's hilarious because for once in grandma's life she tried to be kind to a stranger & then she gets knocked on the pavement pretty good. I roared with laughter. The brief scene is an absolute riot because we don't expect that to happen at all.    The cool thing about this picture is that Judy shows up at the clinic to support her daughter & that this whole incident brings Sage, Grandma, & Judy much closer as a bullheaded family prompting Elle to tell Olivia she loved her & to reconnect as a same sex couple. I guess I just like Grandma Elle because she's very protective of her family especially Sage & if you hurt her in any way, she's gonna bleep you up & come down on you like a ton of bricks. There's actually a tenderness to this film just beneath the surface that is readily apparent in it's candid honesty & steadfast loyalty particularly at the clinic & just outside of it after the procedure is over. It just feels true, genuine, & authentic. Plus, Lily Tomlin's character is an ally we all wish we had in our corner 24/7.    Let's roll with a B+ here because at the end of the day when the crap hits the fan in this crazy world we all want a grandma who is always there for us no matter what.

    • Welcome here Nils!   I can tell you, most of football fans in Hungary are Patriots fans...unfortunately. 
    • Hi, Nils here....   I know a lot of Europeans support the Patriots, but all I can say is no way man, no way!   I'm not entirely sure when I started to follow and cheer for the Colts, but I has no shame in admitting that it was when Manning begun to really shine. It was probably back in 1999 because I seem to remember that play-off game against the Titans.   I also remember the I loved how the Colts would play a beautiful offensive game whereas other teams were boring with their defensive strengths. Aaaahh, those were the days!   I was introduced to American Football during my American Politics/presidential election study in Washington D.C. in the fall of 1996 (Clinton vs Dole). Didn't really get attached to any team back then, so you can say that Redskins just left me totally uninspired.   It is a great and welcoming forum here - and that is just how I remembered America too.
