UNREAL! - OMG @3:15!!!.....he'll be the first receiver on Madden 14, with 100% jumping ability. Without alot of info on this guy, I'm impressed with what i see, but not completly sold, until i see him in a colts uniform, on field, jumping over the goal posts, after scoring a touchdown.


 


His stat line is as follows:


 


HEIGHT: 6'6"


WEIGHT: 225 - 230LBS


40 Low: 4.50   40 Time: 4.56  40 High: 4.73


 


We ask for one, Grigson delivers....can't ask for much more than that. Grigson is managing the budget quite well :thmup: !!!

We've got a thread on him. You should post there.

 

Nobody....I realize that, friend, which is how i end up posting information, after failing to find the updates, prior to my posting. It's :facepalm: , but, like the other attention clowns :nutz:  on this forum, i do it for the responses :panic:. Please allow me to have my fantasy of being an ESPN or Indy Colts, low-budget news anchor. ** Note to self, check colts news before making unnecessary postings** :hmm:

With this guy's physical attributes and athletic ability, it is hard to believe that somebody hasn't taken a chance on him yet. Really makes me wonder what his major shortcomings are. I have a hard time believing that just because he played at a small school that he somehow slipped through the cracks.

I was actually thinking the same thing.  Why was he in the CFL in the first place?  Not that I'm not excited about his potential, far from it. I'm very excited to see what he can do, but just in the back of my mind I'm wondering why we don't already know about him.

Worse still. Not the CFL, he's from the Arena Football League, from what I understand.

A guy like this with some tutalge under one of the best in the game Reggie Wayne for a couple years has to leave you feeling a little excited just in itself. Not to mention with Grigs ability to find hidden talent in unexpected areas give you a little more. Excited to seee what this guy brings. Could bring some major matchup problems!

I will give you the Grigs finding hidden talent thing. But the Reggie tutelage idea is hogwash. Can you name one receiver that has played next to 87 that went from obscurity (read: not NFL draft worthy) to starter? And I mean no disrespect to Reggie, who is amazing in my book.

That said, I hope the kid works out. I love it when my team uncovers diamonds in the rough. I think the Colts could benefit from someone of his proportions, as long as he can show he has the skills too.

He played 1 yr. in the CFL and last yr. he played in the AFL. This is what is kind of disturbing about him and don't really give me a good feeling. The AFL is a step down in my opinion from the CFL.

True but I think alot of it is whether the player really wants to learn and get better and do they have the ability? Thats unknown rightn now with this kid but what Im saying is that if he really does have some potential and if wants to play in this leauge and play everyday then Reggie is a guy who he could learn from by the example he sets and the things he does and how he does them. But it gonna be up to him wheather he wants to learn and get better becuase Reggie can't do it for him. But Reggie can certianly set the example.

This kid has amazing ability!!! If he can develop as a route runner and fix some mechanics he could be a solid target. A 6'6 reciver with a 40+ vert leap and and the ability to catch like he seems to have can be big advantage. If this guy gets some polishing and works hard he seems like he could be special. But its gonna be up to him and if he wants it. The ability certianly seems there.

Uhmm... He was drafted. I asked for examples of guys brought from not-NFL-caliber to starter by Wayne's direct instruction.

And while Im sure Wayne led by example, what evidence do you have that suggests Garcon was directly taught anything by 87?

Well if you wanna get technical

He was a 6th rounder who was never expected to do anything. And ends up being the top FA wr signed last offseason. All of our guys have always openly said they work together during the offseason. So where is your evidence that suggests he wasnt taught by 87

I'm responding to the idea that fans seem to believe their favorite players aren't just good at their position, but also somehow masters at teaching their position. It is rarely the case.

Before Manning was released, there was a theory being floated on these boards that Luck would do best to learn under Manning for a year or two, that PM would tutor him. But 18 never taught any of his backups, other than maybe by example.

Historically, the best coaches aren't often the guys who were the best players. More often they are the guys who had to work their tail off to even make the squad. Most of the truly great players never had to think that hard about their game. It just came naturally to them.

I think it is sufficient to respect and admire the game Reggie plays without assuming he is somehow a coach on the field too. Seems like an awfully big assumption to make.

Likewise, I would wonder how Garçon would respond to the implication that he has only accomplished what he has because he played in the vicinity of Reggie Wayne. He was somewhat like Hilton and Brazill in that he had a pretty stellar highlight reel coming out of college, but playing for Mt Union dropped him out of contention for early round contention.

I really hope this Kelley kid works out. Like I've said before, Grigson really seems to have a great eye for talent, but he's missed a few times with the roster tweaks he's made in the past year.

Kelley is tall and strong, and looks like a tough kid. But there is precious little to tell us how ready he is to run precise routes, or how good his hands are, or how crafty he can be on the field. If those skills arent there, really doubt Wayne can magically teach them to him.

Great video....I like this pick up...folks speculating special teams on the other thread...pish posh you dont bring cats in like this for Kick/Punt Coverage...you bring him in to be a difference maker...he's raw but he'll have good folks working with him.

Don't get too excited, he probably won't make the team .. There is a reason he was in the afl.. He better be a good special teams player or he won't make the team

    • I’d rather not win the super bowl with rivers then win the Super Bowl with brady. I hate brady lol
    • That is so short sighted.   The way to get to the playoffs in the NFL is with high powered NFL passing offenses (been the case since the Peyton days). However, once you get there, you are playing very good defenses as well. Plus, I don't need to explain the rope-a-dope the Colts pulled from 32nd ranking rushing D to win the SB. Not to mention the 31st/32nd ranked defense in the Patriots going to the SB in 2011. I don't need to remind you the Saints, who were 25th or 26th overall D in the NFL beating the Colts in SB 44.   Bottom line - regardless of where you finished and how you finished in the regular season, good coaching helps you turn things around and your regular season ranks is not what wins you championships, your adjustments and ability to maximize strengths and minimize weaknesses gets magnified come playoff time.    If you look at metrics, we did have once in a decade D like the 2000 Ravens with the 2013 Seahawks and the 2015 Broncos that played under even more QB friendly rules than the 2000 Ravens. So, yes, building such Ds is definitely possible with the high rate of draft picks working out like the 2013 Seahawks or high hit rate in free agency like the 2015 Broncos. You are not going to stop the best of offenses to under 20 points most of the time but if you can limit their possessions and keep them in that sweet spot of under 25, you have a puncher's chance of scoring just enough to win, for which you need a good defense for those timely stops. 
    • I think you're mistaken on several fronts.   First, in general, my point was that either our offense has to be better, or our defense has to be better. We can't have a B level offense AND defense and really expect to contend. So if we keep Rivers, the defense has to be better, especially against good QBs.    Second, if you only focus on the scores in the SB, then yeah, you might conclude that defense is overrated, but that's silly because there are a lot of games to be won to get to the SB in the first place. You gave the 2017 Eagles as an example, and they gave up 33 points in the SB, but only 10 points in the divisional game (only scored 15), and 7 points in the conference championship. They went 13-3 and were a contender to begin with partly due to their top five defense.    The 2018 Patriots were a better defense than they got credit for (they were 10th in net yards/pass attempt, 7th in points allowed, and 5th in turnovers), and it was their defense that set the tone in the SB, only allowing three points. It's weird that you'd even use that team as an example.   And last year's Chiefs team had it's strong points defensively. They won the last six games of the season to get the #1 seed, giving up an average of 11.5 points/game, and they were 7th in points allowed over the season.   Of course you have to have a good offense, I've never said otherwise. But you also need a defense that can make some plays. 
    • Crowd noise?    Sorry....   I don’t understand...  
    • The Eagles are not as bad shape as Saints, clearly, but looks like they would only have to cut 4 guys then restructure a few.     Problem with Wentz for them is trading him only frees up a little over $800k in cap space this year(2021).   Now they can wait till after June 1st amd save more this year and put some dead cap till next year, but similar to Michael Thomas they would have to be operating under the cap before then.
