Hassan Ridgeway

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.

Yes, he progressed as the season went on. Colts have a good D lineman in him.

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've been curious about that as well.

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.

    • I understand that but just answer this, who's better MJ or LeBron? I honestly could not stand Michael Jordan which some just ignore when I Post. I hated him more than I do LeBron but I don't get  caught up in the moment either and just say someone's the best ever when they don't have the resume to back it up.  I also think Magic was better than LeBron, lets say LeBron wins it all and wins Finals MVP this season: -Magic 5-4 in Championships -LeBron has him 4-3 in League MVP's -LeBron would have him 4-3 in Finals MVP's -Magic 5-4 in Finals, LeBron 4-4 in Finals -LeBron much more Points in his career -Magic much more Assists in his career -Neither have won Defensive Player of the Year.   To me this is much more of a debate and almost dead even, both are pretty even Rebounders as well. Magic still would be the greater winner though and nobody is going to tell me the Boston teams that Magic beat aren't as great as the Warrior teams are now - that is close but Boston was loaded back then as well.  
    • I'm really not trying to get into this discussion because I understand both sides but the people who try to make it look like it is not a discussion really get to me.   People talk about the rings but I don't think one of LeBron's teams were as good as MJs and the Warriors this year and last year were better than any team Jordan played.   And also about the playoff point stat. LeBron did play 33 more games but still has fewer attempts than MJ did. Just shows you how much Jordan shot the basketball. LeBron will be top ten in assists when he retires.
    • Why is that? Just asking. You do know the Jazz were favored by Vegas going into the 1998 Finals and Jazz had HCA but the Bulls still beat them. Also lets say LeBron wins this year. That would give him 4 Championships. If LeBron wins and wins Finals MVP it would be: Jordan 6-4 in Championships Jordan 5-4 in League MVP's/this wont change Jordan 6 Finals MVP's, LeBron would have 4 Jordan 6-0 in Finals, LeBron would be 4-4 Jordan has 10 Scoring Titles, LeBron has 1 Jordan has won Defensive Player of the Year once, LeBron has never won that. Jordan still has more Career Points and hasn't even played as long as LeBron has. -Not trying to start anything but you don't have a leg to stand on saying that. Jordan beats him in nearly everything imaginable that is most important. LeBron now has more Playoff Points but he has played 33 more games to do so. I cant debate with anyone because I list facts that back up my stuff while others just get on here and say LeBron is the best just because.
    • The ball should be placed where the body part that rules a player down hits. Not where the ball was when that happened. If you are going to spot the ball on a sideline grab where the recievers toes are though the ball is out if bounds, then the same spot rule should apply anywhere else on the field
    • The other thing that I like about cats is their fascination with Christmas trees & ornaments that hangs from it's real or fake branches. Cats tend to like batting ornaments playfully around. You know low hanging stuff or items that catch sunlight just right.    Many years ago, Gypsy my calico cat long since gone now started batting a boot yarn ornament with her paw & she got her claw stuck. As a matter of fact, the tree started to topple in her direction, I stopped it just in time from landing on her. I said "Gypsy are you okay?" She looked at me as if to say. "Thanks for the save SW1. My life almost flashed between my eyes & it wasn't pretty at all."    A few Christmas's later, Gypsy started playfully batting around the same ornament & I replied "Now be careful Gypsy. You remember what happened last time right?" She meowed back at me as if to say "Darn it, you're no fun at all. Off to my favorite spot to snooze for a few hours then."    Yeah, we had an understanding. We gave each other space & we know when to check in & say hey what's up? Cats are cool that way. They know when to leave you alone & when to make sure your okay.
