How many sacks did Kelly give up as a starter in college? Most all offensive linemen end up on the ground from time to time. I don't see it as a problem. His talent level has drawn attention not only from the Colts but the whole NFL and anyone who has knowledge of centers in the NFL.
I agree. We have heavily invested in turning around the OL...picks and coaching changes you really couldn't have asked Grigs to do much more. I agree the pass rush won't be much to speak of. Of course controlling the ball longer on offense and giving them more of rest should help a lot for those older guys like Mathis and Cole but its going to have to be a team effort there....not going to see a broncos style defense here for sure.
I have bigger questions about our lbs and secondary then anything. Outside of Davis I don't think we really know what we have there. DQ and Adams are a year older and perhaps another step slower...eventually father time catches up to you...will this be the year. The rest of the secondary and LB core I think are BIG QUESTION MARKS. Some prospects...hopefully we roll winners on them. I think we've done a good job investing in the DL/OL in the last couple drafts/offseasons to at least make them respectable. Luck just needs to speed up his mental part of his game while cut down on his errant throws. Hopefully more faith in those around him will help him take less chances and give him more confidence in making accurate throws. I think he can do it because he did a lot better his second season after so many mistakes his rookie year. Just get back to that and maybe with the new offense working to make things easier on him should help.
I think to take that next step we will have to continue to invest heavily on defense (pass rush especially) and obviously we will need a rb that can carry the load for us down the road. Hopefully next years draft being deep at RB will help with that and hopefully next seasons free agency and draft will have some help for our pass rush too.
Now that Luck is signed, and I have said this before, I hope they now turn their attention to trading for Moe Wilkerson. We could trade next years no. 2 and maybe Jones as well if necessary. The Jets need the cap space and we have it for Mo. . He's also 26 and entering his prime years. He could be a cornerstone player on our defense for many years to come. The deadline to sign the franchise tag is July 15th. As far as I know he hasn't signed yet. Maybe Ryan can make the big trade. We get Mo they get the cap space for Fitzpatrick.
I disagree, I've gone back and watched as much as I can find on him. Just because he gets beaten once in a while on something does not make it a weakness, iMO. I think a weakness is when someone consistently can't handle something.
To the bolded, I don't understand what you are trying to say.
I would say it is feeling great except for getting out of bed in the morning. HA! I have been swimming almost every day for hours. I have lost 2 pant sizes. Might have to change my position to Strong Safety
Thank you for asking. I appreciate it!!
