Montori's Move

Recommended Posts

I know it was just one play.  But there was one play when Montori used a swim move and shot past the center like a jungle cat.  So it was nice to see that he really does have the quickness they talked about.  For awhile there, he looked like just a big guy who played too high.  Hopefully he is the Da'Rick of the defense.

Give these guys some time who know maybe they will end up being star players on this team.

I have full faith that Pagano and company are doing everything they can to develop these guys and get them in the best possible situation to succeed.  Look no further than Rogers for evidence of that.

Can't wait to see what he becomes

He's a physical freak.  If it all comes together, he could be a real star player.  Time will tell.  After how our coaches handled building up Rogers, I have a lot of hope that Montori can have the same breakout eventually.

Perhaps my favorite post/thought of the month. The idea of those 3 getting the He double L out of here is Pure Bliss.

 

Don`t know the numbers for this season but I think it is similar to last, we played more 4 man front than 3 last season.

How about 40+ % of Chapp & Montori together stuffing the gut? I am all for it. Together they could STUFF it AND get some MUCH NEEDED push. Let`s do that TOMORROW!!!!

I could not be happier with the way chapman is playing... that play in the bengals game were he tripped up green ellis was a great personal effort. Even though the refs got it wrong. As for hughes I have high hopes for this beast :)

Were 28th vs the run and none of the DE's besides Redding have been good. He should be out there starting he can't be any worse then RJF, Moala, or Matthews. Pagano needs to start playing the rookies more it worked for us last year and now this year with Rogers.

It really wasn't just one play. There was the one that you mentioned, but he had three or four other plays, not quite as spectacular, but still giving a glimpse of what he can do. He has really quick and strong hands, his footwork is solid, and he's carrying a load. He's also hard to move off the ball.

He looks like he's coming on.  Again, Grigson seemed to draft a project draft class and late in the year we are seeing signs that a couple of them, Hughes and Werner are starting to get it.  That should be expected.  We might get our first look at Holmes Sunday and see what he can do.  Thornton has been over his head most of the year but the plan was not for him to start that soon so hopefully it pays off for him down the road.  I would encourage fans to stay a little patient and not be so quick to write off this draft class as a bust.

Good luck with that. It's all about snapshots when it comes to grading a draft class, at least on the Internet.

Hey all I can do is encourage them.  If they don't well then sometimes that leads to a case of foot in mouth but hey at least they were first to state their opinion!

Good observation. I will have to go back and watch some of his other plays to see the ones you are talking about.  He seems to have all the ability in the world.

I do like how Grigson has taken some changes on players with big upside.  If they can be coached up, stay out of trouble, and learn from the veterans like Mathis and Wayne, it could be real good.  It is unlikely they all hit, but imagine Montori, Da'Rick, and Adongo playing to their potential.

If it works out that saves us a lot of money for a few years

I think Montori is coming along pretty good.  With the guys we have right now, all the money we will have for FA next year

and the draft we should have a very scary team next year on both sides of the ball.  I've got real Super Bowl aspirations next

year.  Don't get me wrong I have them this year also, but I think next year I will be highly dissapointed if we don't get there.

Nope, Khaled Holmes won't start Sunday. He maybe active though just in case *knocks on wood*

@CraigKColts: Pagano: McGlynn at C, Reitz at RG, Thornton at LG.

Crap, wish they kept Reitz at lg and Thorton at rg. Although maybe since Thorton had been playing lg they want to keep him there. Willing to bet we have a much better line. Sad that it takes satele to get hurt to out him where he belongs. On the bench.

    • He best  thing that could happen is getting a stud DT there then also get the QB they want with that WA pick. But do they take a chance hoping the QB they want us still there. There is a lot of QB needy teams. Not sure we can take a risk waiting if we feel the guy we want is there in the first. A lot though can change If there is a DT in FA we can get. 
    • Not just about using zone 90% of the time but at least dissuading coverage shells, sending different blitzers even if you're only rushing 4 etc etc.    As you say, pose questions of the O, don't give them the answers before the test.
    • So much of what this fan base harped and complained about Pagano with. Half hearted run game, then just completely quit trying it. When your team is just about done anyway, why did the staff just roll over and play dead so many times? And why does a defense who shows they can not play in zone at all, why do they keep trying to do so and then allow millions of yards in huge chunk plays? This teams approach since Manning has left has become somewhat laughable in how it approaches situations. Maybe Manning went back to the staff and said NO, this is nonsense how we are playing and I am doing XXX. Idk but we certainly go flaccid way too often. Hell, I’m shocked we didn’t pull Leonard to “rest him” during the game because he made too many hard plays. I suppose we are just going to maintain a ho hum type of mentality to play a game. Hopefully on our week off, instead of practice, we can rest the entire team and read Christmas stories to one another in team meetings. You know, to rest the hard working guys. Just crazy how passive this team is. 
    • Rushing in 2019 compared to 2018 the Colts have: A better Y/A  A better 1st down % On average 5 more rushing attempts per game   So I'd call bogus on the above, which lends weight to the line not being as much of a problem as people have tried to make out. We're rushing more efficiently, we're rushing more, despite not posing as much of a deep threat.   Interestingly to the last point, teams don't really stack the box against us, Mack has only seen 8 in the box on 11% of his snaps. The league high is 40%.. I'll let people guess which RB that is (they do have over 150 rushing attempts). 
    • I agree.    I also think the proper usage is not using it 90% of the time.   Gotta at least make the offense figure you out.  The Colts pretty much had a flag stating what coverage they are using.
