Colts article....yeah Bleacher Report, but I liked it! :) Why?


Recommended Posts

All kidding aside, I like the ability of Muamba to disengage tackles. Plus he a incredibly long reach when he sprawls out. 

 

Count me excited! 

See above:  :)

I shall return....out of those crazy things.  :thmup:

The article was fine except that it rated Newsome as "overrated."  Umm..he was a 5th round pick - why the author thinks that the fans expect him to be Mathis' replacement just shows me that this guy doesn't really know his audience.  He'd have been better off not even mentioning him and mentioning someone like Hakeem Nicks or even Mewhort.

I agree.  We need to wait and see how he does.  He has been a workout fool so far.  He needs to get stronger and add weight and muscle.

 

I just do not see overrated on rookies taken after the fourth or so...

Which I found to be kind of ironic since in the first sentence of the first player rated (Henoc), he said that "it's easy to underrate a player when you've never heard of them."  I mean, people on these forums knew who Newsome was, but to the vast majority of Cotls fans, probably never heard of him until draft day.

On Newsome, I have to admit I had only read a few articles about him at Ball State.  I knew he was good, but.....not on my Colts radar.  I live about an hour or so south of Muncie.  :dunno:

 The Colts are not the #30th ranked D coming into 2014. Sry, but no.

I believe J. Newsome isn't over rated. He has a lot of heart that will carry any weakness's he may have. He just wants to play football and hit people. He will prove this article wrong.  

I'm looking forward to seeing Muamba play also.

    • Howdy NCF! I agree with you that this is probably going to be TY's last year.  And with the question marks hanging over Parris Campbell, WR may wind up being a position of high focus next year. My early targeted player is David Bell, WR, Purdue.  He's 6'2" 205# and has been very productive. 2019 12 games 86 rec for 1035 yards and 7 TD 2020 6 games 53 rec for 625 yards and 8 TD It appears the biggest question on him that could drag him down the draft board is his 40 time.  I've seen everything from the high 4.4's to 4.7.  The better his time, the higher he goes.  If it gets too good, he'll be off the board by the time we pick in the late 2nd round. My second player to watch is TE Jahleel Billingsley from Alabama.  He got his first chance to play some decent minutes last year, and got himself 18 rec for 287 yards and 3 TD's in 7 games.  Will have to see how many more snaps they give him, and how much he progresses in his third year.
    • Won't last long imo. Fred Warner will want more.
    • Fully expect Leonard to get something like 5 year 100 mil with 55G
    • The only way Wentz isn’t playing enough so that Philly doesn’t get our first round pick is if Wentz gets badly hurt early in the season and is done.   Otherwise, he plays.   Ballard and Reich aren’t going to play the game of trying to get Wentz off the field for enough snaps to change the deal.   That’s not their way.   They wouldn’t risk losing games by shuttling Wentz off and back on the field.  Not happening.  The flow of a game can be complicated.  We’re not risking it.   It’s a fans fantasy.    The Colts are going to surrender their first round pick in 2022.   Be prepared for it.  Expect it.   You don’t want the other version.  The other version means disaster for the Colts.
