we don’t play an aggressive enough defense to emphasize the safety position. More often than not he’s required to be en a deep half. that is his responsibility. by nature his targets will be dwn and plsymaking limited. If anything is impacting Malik the most it’s our scheme
I get it LCF. What I'm trying to understand is any comparison of one player to the next, when the very next thought then talks about how much his play is impacted by the different players he has around him. And how that concept is used.
What I don't understand is when we talk about how Hooker's status is artificially dragged down by our other defenders, why is it that the elite defenders he played with in college didn't artificially elevate his status prior to the draft. Would he have been a stud college saftey he played for Butler instead of OSU?
If comparisons are made to Ed Reed, and Ed Reed was Ed Reed because of Ngata, Suggs, and Lewis, then we need those types of players before Hooker can be Ed Reed too.
I simply don't understand the comparison to Ed Reed....and yes it was made at the time....when the other pieces we apparently need for him to achieve his value were nowhere to be found on the roster then and at any time the past three years.
This is not directed at anyone, but did the thought even occur to anyone that with all the adversity the Colts have had from losing Luck, Brissett, injuries to WR’s, CB, FS and Leonard the Colts at 5-4 should be commended?
They’ve already exceeded my expectations for the season and I’m by no means a Homer.
