Chopping wood

Recommended Posts

I was walking around a tourist shop in Pacific Beach, San Diego and came across an interesting poster. “A man must be stronger than the wood he’s chopping.”  Darn it hit me right between the eyes!

It must be some size of tree for us to have been chopping it for this many years and the thing still hasn't fallen!

    • Agreed. I hope he finds what he needs in Europe. And thank you for sharing sources. 
    • Most of us forget about this hiring, the ex Green Beret brought in to measure and analyze e very player the Colts attempt to sign.  His analysis  involves character as well as many other things to help us determine if the plAyer has the right stuff for an NFL career.  I only bring it up wondering how much influence he may have already had with some of our trades and signings.  Like Brissett maybe.  I know he wasn't involved in the previous draft.  Here's a link.  https://www.stampedeblue.com/2017/5/10/15611404/chris-ballard-explains-what-brian-decker-rex-hogan-bring-to-colts-front-office
    • How can you say they’re playing fine when our coverage is so bad. Maybe they’re giving up one or two big plays a game but that’s how you lose football games. Lol 
    • With the Colts not playing this week, it allows a chance to look at where we are as a team and, if you are to look at our season so far based on pre-season expectations, it makes for quite good reading, in my opinion.   So I decided to make a list, based on pre season expectations, listing who has been a pleasant surprise so far, and who has been a disappointment:   Pleasant Surprises   Jacoby Brissett - Goes without saying, he has been a very solid stand in for Andrew.  Has made errors but I don't think anyone could expect a 2nd year player to move systems and play as well as he has.  Not worth thinking about how the team would have played with Tolzein under center. Cornerbacks - Did anyone expect Desir and Melvin to be as strong as they have been?  Melvin asking to go up against Brown last week says a lot about his character too. Nate Hairston - I love this guy.  Potentially my number one pick for this category and a long term asset for this defense. Al Woods - Hankins was the big money addition, and has done well, but Woods has been excellent value. John Simon - I cant decide if I love him or Hairston more!   Mathias Farley - Hard hitting, strong in the tackle.  Very solid player. Rigoberto Sanchez - When Locke was cut, did anyone else have a sinking feeling in their stomach?  Sanchez has played so well I don't even think anyone has missed Pat (for his punting anyway), which is a massive compliment to the kid.  Kudos Tom McMahon for unearthing this talent.   Disappointments   Vontae Davis - A real disappointment for me.  All the talk from training camp was that he was back to the old Vontae, then picks up an injury and comes back and plays poorly.  Donte Moncrief - It was interesting hear the WR coach talk about him last week, admitting that he has been "hot and cold" and its so frustrating to see the raw ability not convert to the field regularly enough.  I still think there is something there but would not be surprised if Ballard lets him go. Jack Doyle - It was interesting listening to the "Chopping Wood" podcast where they mentioned that Doyle cost us two games.  He did have that one game where he was phenomenal but he had high expectations from last year and being made TE1 for 2017.  I am not worried about him long term, but has to be listed here. Le-Raven Clark - Say no more.   Other Notes:   Marlon Mack - I don't think I can put him in as a pleasant surprise as there were expectations on him and, although he has been explosive in some instances, still a lot to work on in protection and inside running. Offensive Line - I did think hard about putting them in disappointments (not just Clark) but I don't think anyone came in thinking they would be an elite unit and, with the amount of injuries and shuffling, I actually think they have faired as I would have expected.  A long way to go but Castonzo has been strong I think (and unfairly targeted) and Kelly is a stud so there are strong building blocks and I trust Ballard will address this after focussing so hard on the defense this year. Honourable Mentions - Mingo, Gore, Hunt, Sheard.   Looking at the above, although the record is poor (and you are what your record says you are), to look at what we have done in recruitment and the increasing trajectory of play, a change of coaching (which seems inevitable) could mean we come back strong in 2018, with the potential for strong draft acquisitions.   Feel free to add your own for either category but thought I would share my perspective....  
    • Guys....   Not be a Debbie downer here, but let’s not fall into this trap again. We’ve been down this road many times with players who probably aren’t in the league anymore.   While I agree about Hairston, let’s pump the breaks on Desir. He’s had a couple nice moments, but future starter is jumping the gun for him. Let’s wait and see what the rest of the season is like for Desir. There was a time last year when the OL was “fixed”. I’m all in on Hairston who has been exceptional every week but one step at a time.
