We could have had a top 5 CB tandem

63 posts in this topic

i understand, but it doesnt take a rocket scientist to change the scheme to what your best defensive player does best.

And yet, the Eagles are in last place and Andy Reid is about to get fired... And he's already fired his defensive coordinator. Conventional logic doesn't apply to the Eagles over the past two seasons. Not saying Nnamdi is still as great as he used to be, but he's not been used right in Philadelphia.

I haven't seen some of their games, but the one's I have seen, he has been burnt repeatably. He most definitely is not the same player he was in Oakland. Maybe it's scheme related, but for the money he would cost and his age now, I wouldn't want no part of him here.

I don't know what he's going to cost. He's not even a free agent at this point. If they release him (which is very likely, considering his contract and the changes that are probably on the way there, although his contract is structured in a way that might allow them to move some of his money around), it will be a different story.

Either way, even at his age, he's still a good corner. And he's really not THAT old; he'll be 32 to start next season. That's how old Charles Woodson was when he won DPOY.

On a reasonable contract, I'd take him.

We could have a top pass rush if jerry hughes wasn't awful. Actually awful doesn't come close to how bad he is.It is what it is. I fully expect Fleener to become a dynamic receiving threat in time. He and Allen will become a great tandem.

Hughes is more effective than Freeney right now. Jerry gets a lot of flack from Colts fans, and I actually think he's basically a rookie.

OMG!!! LET IT GO PEOPLE!!!!!! JANORIS IS NOT BALLING! SIT AND WATCH A RAMS GAME! MOST OF HIS PICKS COME FROM A GOOD PASS RUSH!!! LET IT GO! He's on the Rams. Oh well. Maybe we would've took him if he wasn't such a Criminal off the field.

Just because you smoke dope doesn't make you a criminal. Or a bad person.

Yep, but he never got any playing time. He's better than the stat geeks think. He's probably our best special teamer too.

Luck is overthrowing Coby a huge amount of time. Has no time to scan the field. He's constantly running for his life back there. Increase luck's protection and the passes to the TE will increase more.

Do you think Arians is going somewhere? I for one wouldnt mind a new OC since I dont feel we are balanced enough and are calling too many deep passing plays resulting in INTs.

I agree with you about the playcalling and I have been vocal about wanting another O Coodinator. But there are a few obvious (or maybe not so obvious) things to consider in my opinion

1.Arians is 60 years old who has never been a Head Coach before at the NFL level (He was the Temple Owls head coach from 1983-1988) He has always been a position coach at the NFL level (Multiple positions all related to the offense) and an O Coordinator in Pitt and with the Browns. Also how long does he want to stick around

2.Playcalling style and now since he is the interim Head Coach you factor his game management skills, (clock management-deal breaker right there alone in my opinion, 3rd down management, personell management). Also, does he use the talent he has around him to the best of there abilities. Is he a players coach or a hard *** or can he balance it out)

Also before you get to any of those questions ya have to figure out how many years is on his current deal, I have no idea, I personally think he will be here another year or two but as OC, I wish it was just as a QB only though

If we had Jenkins, we wouldn't have traded for Davis. Just sayin'...

That's is right, because of Powers.

Unfortunately for Jenkins he was in possession. Alas that makes him a criminal. But if he would have just not possessed it and kept it home and smoked there, he would not have this issue. Lol not a crime to be high. But that's OT.

So because you think Hughes is more "effective" than Freeney that some how does not make him suck? Ya, how about no. He sucks at everything and that includes special teams. He gets flack because he is indeed very very bad.

everything eh? wow that is quite a feat, I didnt know you could suck at everything you do. I mean seriously think of everything he must do in a day or a week or even a year, Thats a whole lot of suck I suppose I mean your right

1.4 sacks in 6 starts

2.31 tackles in 6 starts

Who new someone could suck so bad there first year in a new defense starting 6 games or maybe what sucks is your obvious unwarranted contempt for a player who has the 2nd most sacks on the team this year in limited starts

I will let ya in on what really sucks: paying a Pro Bowl 4-3 RE 14 million dollars who unfortunatelly is a 1 trick magician(yep I said magician and not pony), Hey its a great trick without a doubt and its worked for years but still like any great magician if 1 trick has been figured out then its best to develop new tricks, Besides Hughes role is not Freeneys primary role, Hughes role and skill set is more of what Mathis does and thats rush the passer AND drop back in coverage

please NO,.....

Nnamdi isn't that Bad. It's the system he's in. I think he'd strap in our system. A lot of man to man instead of zone like he's doing in Philly. Watch the Eagles this Thursday and see how much zone they run

We have Vontae Davis. He had a great game today.

But listen to this ......

In the draft last April we chose Coby Fleener. I still think to this day that was a huge miss. We should have taken Janoris Jenkins. We had him right there. We still would have gotten Dwayne Allen in the 3rd round. Coby has disappointed. He's inconsistent. He's injury prone. Janoris has been a ball hawk this season. He's scored a touchdown in each of the last 3 games.

We should have drafted him. Him and Vontae Davis would easily give us a top 5 to 10 CB tandem.

Correct me if I'm wrong, but if I recall this draft well, we were seriously interested in Jenkins, but Rams just "stole" him. But I may mix him up with an other player.

When we actually use Fleener in the endzone on a high fade and let him jump up and get a pass, this thread will be moot.

Nnamdi isn't being used how he should be. He plays man to man, not zone... That's why he's getting beat so much. Tim Jennings played zone with us and was terrible. Now he plays man and look what he's done.

It's all a product of the scheme.

And you know why he does not start? Because....HE SUCKS! Not some big mystery here. He can't pass Freeney or Mathis both guys who are playing out of position when the 3-4 better suits what he does yet he can not crack the starting lineup unless one of them get hurt.

    • Kelly, Clark, Green Projected As Top 2016 NFL Rookies
      I think they forgot Antonio Morrison. Together with Green will be on the Special Team. Antonio is instinctive and has a huge motor and plays with hit and run attitude. A good fit to the new "attack" scheme.
    • The reasons Osweiller chose Houston
      If you think Kubiak would have put in Manning if Brock was putting up 30+ points with no turnovers, I have some mountain property on the Florida coast I would like to sell you...  You go with the hot hand, even at the expense of a legend.  Ask Joe Montana about Steve Young.   You are right, none of us knows.  That's why we're on here giving our opinions... I didn't say money was the only reason, but the main reason.
    • Same ol TRich
      Yeah then he went to Cleveland and they broke him
    • Add 2 players to the Colts- 1 on offense and 1 on defense
      We're talking about adding players to the current Colts roster right?  Not building a team from scratch.  If we're building a team from scratch, Watt, Miller, Mack, Gronk, and Tyron Smith all day.  But let me point out something, I've noticed nobody has seriously said we should add Aaron Rodgers or Cam Newton or Tom Brady to the Colts roster.  Why? Because QB is not a position of need for this team.  We've got Luck at QB, so adding a QB doesn't really make sense, no matter how much better they are than Luck.  That's my argument against Watt, Gronk, Miller, and Tyron Smith.  We already have Anderson/Langford (not elite, but good) Dwayne Allen (not elite, but good), Mathis (less elite than before, but still good) and Castanzo (close to elite).  So, IMO, DE, OLB, TE, and T are not positions where we can improve the team the most.   (Side note, Martin played T in college, so he is not a "pure guard" but plays it so well, and at such a young age)   RG and CB2 are the biggest weaknesses on this team IMO.  Which means those two positions have the most room for improvement.  I think Martin is more of an improvement over Thornton than Tyron is over Castanzo or Gronk is over Allen.  I think Peters is more of an improvement over Robinson/Butler than Watt is over Langford/Anderson or Miller/Mack is over Mathis/Cole.   What did the last 3 SB winners have in common? A very good CB duo that helped the front seven be more effective.  Sherman and Browner, Revis and Browner, Talib and Harris.  Browner had a bad year in New Orleans, but helped win 2 SBs as a good CB2.   My opinion is horrible?

      Hello my Name is Robin. And i'm from Denmark. even though i've been member on this forum for a long time, and the old one as well. I would like to Introduce myself. I became a Colts fan in 2007, when I watched my first NFL game. My brother introduced me to NFL, the superbowl between Colts & Bears, And as we all know the Bears scored first, so I had to rude for the "underdogs".. and from that day on I was hooked. I've watched every game since, even the primetime games, that starts 2:30 in Denmark, it's a long day working with no sleep but damn its worth it. Can't wait for my next big Colts adventure, when I get to see them playing in London 
    • Member Introductions! (Say Hi!)
      I have been a fan since 1984 when I became an early teen and really started to understand the game. Colts moved to Indianapolis in 1984 and eventhough we stunk for a while, things obviously got better. We traded for Dickerson in 1987 and won the Division, then we had Harbaugh's magical season in 1995, the Peyton ERA where winning 12 games was a piece of cake + winning a SB in 2006, now the Andrew ERA where we have already had 3 11 win seasons and a deep Playoff run.
