With all the talk about the colts signing a big name NT, has everyone forgotten about Ridgeway? He played pretty decent given the amount of snaps he played in his rookie year. I would like to think giving more playing time this year in year 2 he could make a nice leap. He has potential.

He was good at the end of the season. Constantly getting pressure. He's not a NT tho.

He's not a NT, but he has the potential to be a stud DE in our 3-4 scheme. I think he can be an all around, really good player.

I believe I heard a report that Ballard hacked the line during the pick and chose him for the colts from the Kansas city war room. :sarcasm:

He isn't a NT though he is more like what McGill is a pass rushing DT

Not sure if it's actually this cut and dry, but according to the below he played a ton more snaps at NT than DE. 

http://www.pro-football-reference.com/players/R/RidgHa00/fantasy/2016 

 

I thought he had a good year, and I do forget about him.  I still think the Colts need an above average at least NT if they are ever going to be truly successful in a 3-4.  You need someone to keep your LBers clean, and the Colts haven't had that since the switch.  Not sure they will this year either, with the draft thin, and Poe who might not be that kind of player any more with his back.  

 

I wonder if Wilfork would come play a season with the Colts... I mean, he almost owes us, having been a Patriot and a Texan...

Outside of C Kelly, He was probably my favorite Rookie player to watch. I wanted him to get more snaps period. Either from DT Perry or another DE. He will be counted on to play a very important role moving forward.

Ridgeway, Anderson, Jones (NT), Parry (NT), Langford, McGill and now Hunt make for a decent rotation.  The DL is definitely less of a need than LB or secondary.

My hope is that Ridgeway continues to progress and that Anderson bounces back to 2015 form and of course continues to progress......

Well.  We could spend it and be set at NT.  Or we could save the 10 million a yr for a rainy day and watch everyone keep running the ball down our throats.

 

I have no idea why everyone is worried about how much we are spending.  We have a need and we have the money for the need... would Irsay like to spend as little as possible?  Sure.  But there is no sense being stubborn

Because it's not a guarantee that it works. Pittsburg demolished KC twice with their running game last year with Poe at the NT spot. Not to mention he does have back issues as a big guy. We could spend 10 million then have another Arthur Jones.

Because we already have Arthur Jones and it isn't working so you need to take a chance.  He wont be another AJ unless he gets hurt.   I am sire it will be in the contrqct

Your link has him playing at DT not NT.

 

I believe the Colts system calls the defensive end on their left (the offense's right) the DT and the defensive end on their right (offense's left) the DE.

 

I'm not sure why they do this.

I don't think NT is the position he should be in. Swapping between DT and DE is where he fits best, opposite of Anderson. He could developed into something good for us. A solid NT would boost his production even more. 

To me, Ridgeway has potential to develop into a 'rich man's' Zac Kerr.

My guess would be that the DT plays on the "Strong Side" and the DE plays on the "Weak Side"....hence the better edge setter and run defender would be the DT and the better pass rusher would be the DE.

I don't expect Jones to be here much longer. Unless he's willing to take a massage pay cut.

He's going to have to stop getting paid so much for those massages. The team needs comfort for a cheap price! Bad play is one thing, but you can't charge for comfort!

Good rotational player on the line. Interested to see his development.

 

He is not a NT though.

I really think Hassan is our 3-tech of the future. He demands a double team if you run his way and also can push a pocket decently well. He's more of a 2 down player at this point IMO but if we keep Kendal Langford we sub him in on passing downs.

If he cuts out the massages with a "happy ending" it might be doable? :monkeydance:

There isn't a defensive player from last year that was impressive. He needs to step it up or be gone.

I didn't say fire everyone. Colts are doing their due diligence by replacing lack luster linebackers from last year. they need to do the same with all 11 defensive positions. If they can by improve on ANY of the current defensive players on the roster they need to do so. Ridgeway was NOT impressive last year. If the Colts can improve his position thru free agency or draft they need to do so. He was part of a defense that ranked last or next to therefore needs to be upgraded. Therefore if he can't step it up next year then ABSOLUTELY he needs to be gone.

    • Yeah, I read and watch shows about sports all the time and I don't recall anybody besides the dude on Mike and Mike saying anything like that, and even he ended up backtracking.   And besides, if anyone really was saying that Luck won't be here next year, they are wrong. Luck will be here next year, even if he doesn't want to be. But he will be, so its a dumb and pointless discussion.
    • Defense is more important to me. Defense/effort is something you can hang your hat on. Its something that you can be consistent with and even if your having a bad shooting game you can clamp down and make it difficult on the other team. I just feel like defense is something that if you are good at it and you make it a priority that it can get you through stretches and keep you in the game until your scoring gets back on track. When you just try to outscore the other team...typically you run against just a better team...we don't have the best players in the league...its clear. Against a Cleveland or OKC, Houston, GS, and the elite talented teams...we aren't going to outscore them..we aren't going to out skill them....so to offset the difference we need to muck it up...be physical and out tough out work them. So defense is more important.
    •   No, and luckily I just got promoted to a different location, so hopefully I don't run into her again.     She's still nothing compared to Crazy Tuna Lady...     Years ago, when I actually was in the food industry, this lady ordered a tuna sandwich, and then had a conversation with herself in the store about the sandwich.  Then accused my staff of trying to poison her with "radioactive" mayo packets, and then tried to run over our employees with her car in the parking lot multiple times over the next 2-week period.   I actually had to call the police and tell them about the menace that was terrorizing my employees.  About 65 years old, gray hair, loud screechy voice, crazy look in her eye, looks and sounds just like a witch, driving a white 2-door hatchback filled with so much garbage that it comes tumbling out every time she opens her door, but the garbage is valuable to her, so she picks it all up and throws it back into her car...  
    •   I think the key thing is that most folks in the media do not show the only real relevant angle which was from the other side line.  NFL Primetime did on Monday with the MC and Hasselback thinking no movement and Saturday felt there was movement without control.     The things that were essentially undisputed were that he lost possession, he regained control of the ball, went to the ground and got a knee in bounds.  One needs three elements to be given credit for possession of loose ball while he is going to the ground, 1) control, 2) knee down, 3) and maintain control of ball through the ground.  As the first two exists only the 3rd one is to be reviewed.   Here is a video of the play and the angle one wants is at 0:22-0:24 of the video. As a side note this is also what Riveron talked about in his official review but i could not find the video, it bury in the NFL videos.     Anyways, movement is okay if made/controlled by the player, but if ball moves in a way the player can not control it is movement which demonstrates that he does not have control of the ball and thus does not fulfill part 3 and no possession.   When one looks at that portion of the view with AJS rolling over, you see the ball does move and come away from his chest, if that movement you feel he did, then control - possession, but if one feels that movement was caused by him being jarred by hitting the ground, then you have the evidence needed to show lack of control of the ball.  If you can not decide between the two, the call on the field must stand.    It comes down to a judgement call.         
    • They are not journalists (with integrity).  Their job is to get ratings.  What better way than to speculate without being accountable if it doesn’t happen?  What gets people watching/talking more than spreading FUD, notably concerning a Franchise/Elite player?   My question, how do they move Luck and his huge salary, and manage the salary cap hit from doing it?  Work out how it can be done before I believe you and these guys. Imagine every scenario to do it, then decide if Irsay would buy into it.     Look at Lucks contract, his guaranteed money, the cap hit from it... and how much it costs to move him.  Create the scenario(s) where Luck is no longer a Colt and we will let Superman critique it.    ...Go...
