I think we should have one of the Mods make like a FA Thread and let everyone put who they want us to sign in there. That way I don't have to keep clicking on all these threads to give my opinion on each person lol

Looks like Tarzan, but plays closer to Jane.     That's somewhat of an exaggeration,  but from what I've read he'd rather hit you hared than tackle you.   And if takes the wrong angle -- and he often does -- then he doesn't get the Big Hit, or the tackle.

 

Put another way....   he's constantly getting signed by a new team, plays for them a year or two, and then he's off to a new team again....

 

What does that tell you.....?

 

(Once teams find out what he is,  they're perfectly happy to let him go elsewhere....)

Yeah I'd pass on that. I never followed him close since he hit the nfl. I knew coming out he was a freak of nature. But I guess he didn't apply his brain to his skill

He was great this year with NY.

And he has been with two teams, as the Redskins let him go because he was injured too much. You make it seem like he has been with 12 teams.

He reminds me of Bob a little.  He also has a bit of a checkered injury history from what I understand.

You are correct, Nobdy....  Landry has only been with two teams.   Not sure who I was mistaking him for?    Brain cramp.

Are you sure about the 'great' part with NY??

I haven't seen his stats, but according to Jets fans he was great.

Edit- 4 forced fumbles, 99 tackles, 2 INTs, one for a TD, 8 passes defensed.

Kam Chancellor had 100 tackles, 1 FF, 0 INTs, 4 PD.

Dashing Goldson (probowler) had 69 tackles, 1 FF, 3 INTs, 11 PD.

It'll be interesting then to see just how much of an effort the NYJ make to re-sign him.   You would think he'd be a priority...

 

We'll find out soon enough....    thanks for the 411...

As someone stated before, I am making the point he isn't near as tough as he looks.  He is a speciman, but I have seen several instances of him being stiff armed or trucked to the ground.  He goes for the big hit, no wrap up tackling and it shows

Sad part is, that sums up about 95% of defensive players in the NFL now days.

Very true, everyone is so focused on knocking someone out there are tons of missed tackles in games.  I know the offensive players are good, defensive guys would not fail so often if they wrapped the guy up.

He has good stats.

 

He wouldn't be a long term solution but I would give him a chance to play SS in an aggressive defense like ours.

 

Is he better than Zibby or Lefeged, i think so.

 

Give him a one year contract and see what he does.

Questionable work ethic and dedication outside of the gym, poor instincts, major liability in coverage, def not a beast.  Remember Roy Williams of the Cowboys?  No, not that one... the other one who played for the Cowboys?  Yeah, the safety...

 

There's a reason why us Skins fans loved playing against that guy.  LaRon is a lot like him.

 

That dude would come up and hit you so hard my your grand kids feel it!

 

Well, yeah... but only after allowing a big first down.  Even then he was still more likely to whiff on the tackle or fail to wrap up.

That was Sean Taylor who took out Brian Moorman.  It's no difficult feat to blow up a punter but Taylor could legitimately blow anybody up and was 100 times the player Landry is while only scratching the surface of his full potential.  I promise you LaRon wouldn't have made that play in the same situation.  He was never that athletic when he was bigger and he never was that instinctive or that good at taking angles.

 

I have distinct memories of Landry losing a darn footrace to Jason Witten.  He didn't get bodied out for the ball or anything... he got flat out burned by a 260 pound tight end not known for being especially fast.  Even as a rookie, Taylor proved capable of physically dominating Terrell Owens and beating out Randy Moss for jump balls.  Those guys were in their prime in 2004 and nobody else could do that.  Taylor had a reputation for being a relatively soft-spoken, sweet guy off the field despite having some problems early on in his career.  He loved the game, loved his family, and worked hard at his craft.  Landry has always seemed ego-driven by comparison and his priorities were always extremely questionable, especially when it came to rehabbing his achilles tendon (refused surgery and decided to bulk up to 245 pounds in the gym).

 

Night and day difference... :(

Sean Taylor! Think that's who I was thinking about, lol. Mainly know all about Colts players don't follow or care to follow many others once they hit the nfl. Then they are all the ENEMY! Lol

 Probably not a lot of effort as they are in terrible shape for cap space in 2013

I'd prefer Tyron Branch (OAK) instead of Landry. But that's just me

As long as its not zibs. I just want to have an aggressive hard hitting I dare you to run the ball d. I thought it looked improved last year but I have been so jealous watching the Tampa, ravens and steelers d these last few years. Even jags and titans had a pretty good d for awhile

I highly doubt Zib will be the Starter next year

    • Woman has to know her place....
    • As far as I know, Eminem is the only rapper to list his favorite rappers in a song.   His top rappers are:   1.  Reggie  (His uncle) 2.  Jay-Z 3. Tupac 4.  Biggie 5.  Andre 3000 6.  Jada 7.  Kurupt 8.  Nas 9.  Eminem   Being last does not offend him, he made the list.   Either way, the spirit of God lives in us.
    • Very sad... He was a part of so many amazing tunes.   
    • I don't like anything about Frank Sinatra, tbh.    His music was before my time, but I enjoy a lot of other music and film from that era. I'm from the Midwest and it's hard for me to relate to those songs. They all seem to have a New York/Vegas feel to them (and not in a good, Sonic Youth way). A lot of it seems... insincere, for lack of a better word. I kind of compare it to today's teen bop bubble gum type music where the personality and public persona and "coolness" factor of the artist are as important as the actual music. However, like I said, I wasn't alive at the time to know whether that is the case or not.   Maybe I just don't get it (like many people don't get rap or jazz) but what Sinatra did doesn't sound like singing to me. He didn't seem to have any vocal range. He didn't play instruments (that I know of) or dance. It's really bewildering to me that he is such a cultural icon.    His persona is grating, to me. I never like performers whose image is rich/smooth/connected. Just not my cup of tea.    It also seems to me that Sinatra wasn't that great of a guy, either. I know that there is a culture gap between his generation and mine, so I won't judge him too harshly about what his social views were w/ regard to race and gender equality, but his coziness with organized crime figures ( ie murderers) is troubling.   All of this is just my opinion, of course. I'm not a Frank Sinatra expert, by any means. He just appears, to me, as the antithesis of everything that I enjoy about art.   He's on my short list (along with Gene Simmons, Andy Warhol, L. Ron Hubbard, Ronald Reagan) of sainted cultural icons who didn't actually contribute anything of value to their respective fields. Again, jmo... your definition of value might differ from mine. 
    • Not to mean this in an argumentative way but the changes in the Colts winning ways was started by Harbaugh. We were one play from reaching the super bowl against the Steelers. Take away the illegal TD that Stewart caught and that game may have had a different turn out.

    •   Sorry to keep harping on the Irish thing, but did you know the horseshoe has seven points on it?  (The Colts horseshoe, anyway.  Actual shoes for horses depend on the farrier).   Seven is considered a lucky number...  Lucky.  Luck.  I'm telling you, you picked the right team to root for.   7    
    •   Don't hold Boston against the Irish.  It's not our fault.    We love our green, which makes Indiana a tearmann.   I love it that you chose to root for an underdog instead of the Pats.  I don't think it's coincidence that you became a fan around the time Luck got drafted to the Colts.  That's providence.     Horseshoe?  Luck?  Four-leaf clover?  Come on.  Hoosier Hospitality has roots in Irish fun-lovery.  If you're lucky enough to be Irish, you're lucky enough!  May the luck of the Irish be with you!
