Walk On

Walk On (1/6)



  1. Yeah Dorsett did not fight for that ball at all. He should have at least tried to get a hand on it if he couldnt catch it.
  2. Dorsett just isnt that good. He wasnt even good in college. In his 4 years at Miami he averaged 30 catches for 533 yards and 4 TDs. Hardly the type of productivity I would have forked over a first round pick on. Especially when the colts had/ have so many glaring needs in so many areas. Classic example of a guy whos stock went through the roof after he ran a blazing 40 time. Much like Stehpen Hill or Darius Heyward Bey, except those guys at least had size to match their speed. I cant express the dissapointment I had when we drafted him, and that dissapointment hasnt subsided in the slightest watching him play every week. Aside from the bomb touchdown he caught in London (which he was left wide open in a blown coverage) I can't recall him doing anything memorable at all in his time here.
  3. I loved Garcon when he was here. He would be a fine addition to this team. At the right price of course. He is grossly overpaid in Washington. Big strong targets ala Kelvin Benjamen, Mike Evans, Alshon Jeffrey etc. have become staples in NFL offenses these days, just curious as to why the Colts never seem to have any of these types of players on their radar either through the draft or free agency.
  4. How about having Eric Walden running 20 yards downfield trying to cover tight ends? In what world should this ever happen? We should celebrate not getting blown out too bad? By NFL standards 21 points is a pretty big beatdown. After a decade plus of excellece how can you guys have such low standards?
  5. Moncreif a potential top 10 WR? Cmon man lay off the blue kool aid. Our receiving corps really could use a big strong target who can go up there and get the ball. We have too many wide receivers cut who apprear to be from the same cloth. Even Moncreif who isnt as undersized as Dorsett and TY, is far from an imposing physical presence. Our WR corps are speedy, but they are soft and have difficulty catching the ball in traffic. They arent particularly effective at getting clean releases in press coverage either. Wish we would have made a run at Brandon Marshal when he was available in free agency last offseason, he was just what this team needed (aside from being an obvious head case). He certainly would have been a better signing than Trent Cole.
  6. Grigson can't leave town fast enough. Pagano has been pretty bad too, but its hard to fault him when he's dealing with a complete lack of talent on both sides of the ball. Our 3-4 scheme is obselete when we have below average LBs across the board. Our secondary is a total wash outside of Vontae whos playing on one leg. Would love to have a shutdown corner like Xavier Rhodes on the team, too bad Grigson thought Bjeorn Werner was the better pick (lol). An MVP caliber ballhawk safety like Landon Collins would be nice too wouldn't it? Oh yeah Grigson went with Phillip Dorsett instead (lol). What a season he's having. But then to turn around the next year and waste a second rounder on a science experiment like Green, who probably would have been available in the 4th or 5th round was the ultimate slap in the face. No need to even bring up the Trent Richardson trade. Who is to be held accountable for this mess?
  7. We are in dire need if an edge pass rusher with Mathis being sidelined. Mathis' production on the feild simply cannot be replaced any way you look at it, particularly with the absence of both Hughes and Conner leaving via free agency the past two seasons. Jonathan Newsome is a situational pass rusher at best and Werner is still very much raw talent and work in progress. Walden is good at stopping the run but doesn't bring much in terms bringing QB pressure. Mathis' injury is very much exposing the Colts' lack of depth at the position which is surprising given how strong they used to be in that area just a few years back. I too agree Bjoern Werner is better suited for a 4-3 scheme. He will certainly be under emmense pressure to perform this year and justify Grigson's decision to spend a first round pick on him.
  8. More because of his lack of size and the fact that he went to FIU and not Tennessee or Florida. Hilton is a very dynamic playmaker,and the Colts should absolutely be trying to get the ball in his hands in open space in any way possible, whether it be bubble screens, quick outs, or running him on reverses. Pep Hamilton needs to be more creativewith his playcalling than lining him up at fullback
  9. Let's not forget Quinn had the luxory of having Chris Long on the oppisite end. Robert Mathis was double teamed regularly in the second half of the season. That's not to say Quinn is more or less deserving though, the season he had was really something special. As for the question at hand all guys mentioned are deserving and make a strong case. I really would have no issue with any of the 5 or 6 guys mentioned getting the nod.
  10. Lol @ how pathetic NFL officiating is. You would think such attrocities would never occur much less repeat themselves. Then I remember a Redskins game this year where RG3 and company are driving down the field in the final minutes to tie the game and after an apparent 1st down the chains are moved and Griffin takes a shot down the field for an incomplete pass no big deal. Except the refs then on 2nd down change their mind about two plays prior being a first down (saying it was inches short) and actually move back the sticks 10 yards and declare Skins 2nd and 10 is now 4th and inches.
  11. Hilton has no explosion in and out of his cuts? Really? His lateral quickness and short burst accelleration in and out of his breaks is most definitely his most endearing quality. Even moreso than his straight line speed, this is where he gets his seperation from and why he is so successful in finding space on intermediate patterns and underneath routes.
  12. The hit was legal, it should be more of an issue about the NFL needing to make adjusted rule changes to prevent player injury than an issue of whether Welker was in the wrong in trying to hit Talib coming across the middle. Personally I think defenders should be warranted the same courtesy as offensive players - Talib is just as defenseless trying to cover a crossing route with his eyes locked on the ball/QB as what a wideout would be coming over the middle in traffic. And Talib's injury probably had no impact on the final result of game but to say it wasn't instrumental to the Pats' secondary getting exploited the way they did is a bit silly. The guy is a top tier defensive back (anyone who says otherwise is delusional) and after his injury it was very obvious that the Pats had no one else who could match up physically with Demeryius Thomas. Just as importantly, the Pats had to move Dennard over to cover him, which in turn created other exploitable and favorable matchups elsewhere on the field for the Broncos.
  13. Like him or hate him this guy backs it up. He is playing at a ridiculously high level right now. He just had one of the best seasons a db has ever had in league history. If you look at opponents' passer ratings when targeting him it is mind boggling. I like his fire.
  14. Sure a lot of his decisions didn't pan out this year in the draft or FA but after what he did in 2012 its hard to knock the guy. I for one was a little bit dissapointed we drafted Werner over Alec Ogletree - who made an immediate impact on the Rams' front seven - or ahead of Werner's FSU teammate Xavier Rhodes, who was drafted two picks after Werner and had a pretty stellar rookie campaign with the Vikings this season. The jury is still out on Werner though. The kid is pretty raw but he has tremendous upside so who knows what type of player he will develop into. Look at how well another supposed bust, Jerry Hughes performed for the Bills this year in his fourth NFL season.
