Rahem Brocks Great Tweet Vs Hank Basket


Recommended Posts

Raheem Brock was a defensive end for the Colts during that Super Bowl. In fact, it was his last game as a Colt. Brock was also watching last night's shootout between the Packers and Saints,

and when Driver recovered Kasay's onside kick,

Brock tweeted this:

Dear hank baskett: if u were watching the game tonight.....that's how u catch an onside kick!!! I'm just sayn... ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

Yep, Raheem went there.

I used to like Brock...a lot. But no more. And I am so sick of Hank getting blamed for that play.

Not to start a whole new debate, but he WAS the ONLY person on ST that even tried for the darned ball in the first place and he had the ball at the bottom of the scrum. The whistle sounds and it is called Colts ball so he lets up because he is being crushed. That is when they grab it away from him. I have always thought that was one of the most unfair plays I have ever seen, especially since have of the Saints bench and coaching staff were on the field at that time, too.

Sorry, just don't get me started. Hank has taken a lot of crap that he didn't deserve for that and Raheem just needs to can it. Maybe if Raheem had stepped up, we might have still had a chance, eh?

kinda unfair for baskett since nobody were prepared for the onside kick in SB. He was there alone and unaware of the situation. After these yrs I think we'd not blame him that much.

that is what we get for bringing a horrible reality show husbund onto our team. p.s. receivers

should always be prepared to catch the ball. i am with brock on this a bit of a low blow however.

Maybe u never heard what Basket admitted to after he left us and was resigned by eagles,

He actualy said he secured the ball, heard all the colt players saying its Colts ball, so he just let go and tried to get up.

He said he never realized to wait for the whistle & refs to take the pile apart

and for sure he has seen enough plays to know to wait for ref to take pile of players off anmd see who is left with ball in the scrum and whistle it dead & signal

NOT A SUPRISING< McNab u remember while an Eagle didnt know a game could end in a tie, What did the Eagles teach there players

That is a nice cheap shot there Brock. Maybe had the defense played some defense after the onside kick it would not have hurt us. ;)

Brock just comes off as a giant *.

I was going to say maybe after Freeney or Mathis gets a sack this year Hank can tweet back "Hey Brock if you were watching that's how you sack the QB...just saying."

I dont really think thats fair. Last I saw, it wasn't Basket that let Brees throw 1200 completions that day or whatever it was.

Do agree our D wasnt up to par, feel much of that was lack of Freeney in second half when ankle got worse from ist half action so brees had all day to throw , in first half they couldnt move the ball, and our secondary is never able to cover if QB has plenty of time, cant always cover at all even if QB doesnt have much time when to much cushion given

That made me laugh, but it's a low blow. I'm sure Baskett isn't happy about how it all turned out. Bad idea by Brock to bring it up again

That was a facepalm moment for the fanbase. Then he had to take it further and ask what would happen if it happened in a playoff game or the Super Bowl.

Worse yet, last year in GQ magazine, he tried to blame his ignorance on the refs.

Why didn't he just get up with the ball?

That's the question...

It's the Super Bowl you hold on to that ball till you hand it to an offical...

Also for the record I don't blame the coaches for not telling him that. They shouldn't have too, somethings should be common sense if you make it to the NFL and that's one of them.

I agree with what Brock said but Brock seems to be a negative jerk. For lack of better words.

Brock also over looks the fact that he was the one who came in for Freeney and once Freeney went out we stopped getting a pass rush and that was when Brees started picking us apart. He had just as much to do with the loss as Basket did in a lot of ways.

Yep, very true. There were many mistakes during this game. He's an easy target, and a coward hiding behind his little tweetie machine. Hank's mistake didn't lead to n 'immediate' TD like Manning's interception.

He's a second rater himself, as he proved when Dwight went down.

Very well said. It is far easier to blame a nobody journeyman than to blame the face of our franchise. Frankly, I wish Al Qaeda would blow up twitter.

So he's an *???

Worse yet, last year in GQ magazine, he tried to blame his ignorance on the refs.

So his * behavior led him to blame the refs??

Raheem's just jealous that he's never had anything even COMPARING to Kendra :) (how's THAT for a 3rd post of my daily 3 :) )

Kendra the girl who was sleeping with Hugh Hefner and considered one of his three wives basically??

Ok so in conclusion via my scientific research on this thread we can conclude Hank Basket is an * who blames others for his mistake, & is sleeping with a woman who slept with the equivalent of Benjamin Button, (the young Benjamin which would technically be the elder looking Benjamin). Sounds like a fabulous guy.

Who cares if Raheem is low blowing him, (Ewwww that didn't sound good). But seriously, Hank suxxxored, that uber newb roflechopter uber pwnage.

Hank Baskett was playing football in the NFL. There isn't an excuse for not being prepared on a kickoff. What makes it even worse is he said he recovered the ball and then let go before the whistle. Just plain stupid.

I agree with Peyton Girl in regards to that play. Hank has gotten an unfair wrap in my opinion due to Colts fans' disappointment over how that Super Bowl ended up. We needed a scape goat and you know hardly any of us wanted to blame Peyton or Reggie for the pick 6 so there you go...its Hank Baskett.

The pick six had almost nothing to do with it. Even had they scored (not a gimme by any means since they were just inside the 40 at the time) there is no evidence at all that the Saints would not simply march right down and kick a field goal because the defense never stopped the Saints from scoring once after the midpoint of the 2nd quarter.

wth I hope this is misinformation and he did not do this for real. It's the Superbowl

and there should be nothing less than a dead body pulled from the scrum for ball

possession!!!

The TURNING POINT of the game was that play right there! One less possession for Brees and

one more possession for Manning with impeccable field position, leads to a more probable

victory for thr Colts.

Anyone who wants to defend this play and defend Hank.....I'm your Huckleberry.

    • It's been a few years now. Let's re-grade.   Rock Ya-Sin grade C+ - I don't think Rock is a bad player. Unfortunately, Rock hasn't learned in the past two years that the NFL game is called much differently then college. A lot of the grabs he got away with don't fly here and that gets him beat rather that's a PI call or a long completion. Rock has shown good coverage when he turns his head and he's a solid tackler, but he still has a lot to work on.   Ben Banogu Grade D - Banogu had flashes his rookie year with obviously his biggest play being his strip sack on Flacco, but was a heathly scratch for basically his entire 2nd year which tells me coaches didn't like his work ethic and/or how he practiced which is concerning to me because he was already a project player to start and now goes through the same hurdles of Tyquan Lewis.    Parris Campbell - Grade incomplete - I don't know what to make of Campbell. The kid is a playmaker, however he has had unfortunate injuries to start his career. I still think him and Pittman can be our future at the WR position, but Campbell has a big year 3 ahead of him to prove he can stay healthy and produce.   Bobby Okereke Grade B minus - Bobby imo gets the most hype from our coaches and some of it is warranted, but Bobby doesn't exactly scream difference-maker to me like the colts do. He's a solid LBer with average/good coverage ability, but his play recognition and ability to shed blocks leaves a lot to desire. He's a good rotational/situational LBer, but I dont see a 3 down LBer.   Khari Willis Grade A - Willis imo is best player in this draft class. Willis has produced since his rookie and continued into this year as well. He's a hard hitting box safety who has continuous disrupted plays. I can see Willis and Blackmon making a great combination for years to come.   Marvell Tell - Grade incomplete - Tell had a nice start to his rookie year, but he opted out last year so it's a wait and see approach to understand what we have.   E.J Speed - Grade B - Speed has mostly played STs, but him along with Franklin and Adams have given us a really good Special Team unit.   Gerri Green, Jackson Barton, Javon Patterson Either no longer on the team or practice squad player.    
    • @chad72 one other thing I'd strongly recommend considering, is having a lottery for the Colts (instead of first come first serve). I can't remember how we did it, but I know we gave everyone a chance. We did have several fans from other teams participating, and we made exceptions for them (since no one else had strong feelings about the teams they wanted). So for us, NFLFan would have the option for MN, some of the Charger fans could pick LAC, etc..       
    • I'd love to see EJ emerge. He's definitely got the measurables. I just have tempered my expectations knowing he's a small school dice roll. Thought we'd see him get some time last year, but instead still saw small bits of the other depth guys.   there's some decent FAs that IMO would be an upgrade, and wouldn't cost a bunch. If we could pick up a guy from a cap squeezed team like Jaylon Brown for like 8Mish a year, I think he'd be perfect for our scheme and a 3 down guy. An aging vet like Perryman or KJ Wright might work out too on a modest short term deal. Perryman might be just a 2 down guy, but his coverage was not bad at all last year.  We're in a 4-2-5 set 60+% of the time already. We've never used the SAM a lot even with both Walker and Oke. In 2019, it was Walker at MIKE on 1st and 2nd (and short yardage), Oke at MIKE on 3rd (and obvious passing downs), and then Oke sometimes at SAM vs teams that ran the edge a lot or obvious run downs. Last year Oke started eating into Walker's 2nd down snaps, and we simply played lite more.    Purely my opinion, but you don't want to see Adams or Franklin taking MIKE snaps unless it's an emergency. And definitely not Glasgow. And keep in mind that EJ is still pretty thin. Oke is undersized already at MIKE. EJ is taller than Oke, but 10lbs lighter. Perhaps EJ put on some good weight, but IMO, his lack of power/strength is likely a factor keeping him off the field. He's probably more suited for WILL than MIKE to be honest. If he can pack 15-20lbs of good weight on, and keep his twitch, he could make for a very nice MIKE. It'll be interesting to see if he's made progress in the offesason. Walker was the QB of the D in 2019, and it was him in 2019 and 2020 that filled in at WILL when Leonard was out. That was a little surprising to me as Oke was "billed" as faster and rangier... Peculiar...   Anyway, his asking price is not what concerns me. He's not going to command a lot in this market, and he's not ranked in the top 200 FAs (PFF) either. What my gut tells me is he'd rather play in 3-4 where IMO he'd be much more productive, and would fit his skill sets better. Better fit for him, and probably more lucrative long term. He also can't be happy with Oke eating into his snaps, especially when Oke isn't playing well. Anyway, I really don't want to see Oke playing early downs. He got tore up early downs at MIKE when Leonard was out. If he's our 3 down guy, I can see teams running right at him.
    • Watt is not a good scheme fit. Period. Especially not at that price point and having played his entire career in basically the same scheme. I don't care what anyone says but Houston would be a really logical signing. You don't need him to be Superman with Buckner doing 3 tech.  If worse comes to worst with this cap squeeze, you could get Houston on a one year rental for a discount. He's already cleared almost $100M over his career and he was solid in 2020. There is no way I chase Watt in FA for a premium coming out of a 3-4 scheme. Green Bay is a much better fit for him. 
    • Jabril Cox would be a nice upgrade from Walker and Oke.  Especially since we play the 4-2-5 60% of the time.  He can cover and blitz, two things that Oke and Walker can't do.
