Forget Moncrief's hops


Recommended Posts

....... But he doesn't do anything for the team

Least Moncrief actually makes an impact in the games

Colt probably is about to be a backup again this season if he even makes the team

Aka replaceable

Just don't like how this warrants a video and article when it's not even guaranteed he'll be on the team come September

Colt's role as a Colt is absolutely irrelevant to this piece. The guy showed incredible athleticism/ups. The fact that you don't think it deserves any attention because he's not a key player is ridiculous.

Wait a gall dern minute here...

I just watched a Woody and Wesley movie that proclaimed this an impossible feat...

It really does look impossible, though... Anderson isn't even really built like someone who you'd think could jump over your head...

 So what if he is a back up player? There are 22 starters so that means there are 31 back up players. Why do you insist on spewing negative comments? Sometimes your comments suggest your not really a Colt fan, just a pretender.

"we already knew that Indianapolis Colts safety Colt Anderson was a great athlete from his 81 career tackles" < is that supposed to be sarcasm...

 

maybe its 81 career ST tackles

Looked fake to me. Possibly a joke? Something looked off here. 

 

I wondered why you couldn't see him before the jump as well.

 

 

It's still impressive, but I just wondered was he running then jumping? 

 

 

 

Either way white men CAN jump!! lol

It looked ....odd. There's a 'skip' in his motion after he left the ground, appearing as if he didn't make the jump, appearing as if his momentum was reckoning him to fall backward. 

 

The fact that his probable hand hold is out of frame makes me question this as nothing but a joke response to Moncrief's impressive leap. It looks to me like he grabbed something with his hands that is above and out of frame. 

 

That being said, if I tried this, I would've collapsed during the running start phase. The only jump that would occur thereafter would be the paramedics attempting to jump-start my heart.

Colt is a great player. He is super fast and makes a ton of plays on special teams. I can't believe he isn't put in to play safety or split time with someone.

 

When did this happen?     When did Colt Anderson become a "great player"...??

 

He had 16 special teams tackles last year.    The figure used in the story (87) is his career total.

 

I think he's got no better than a 50-50 shot to make the roster this year.

 

Other players in his way.....   Adams, Lowery, Geathers,  Guy,  McDonald.    That's 5.

 

And it's not even clear that 5 will make the 53 man roster....

 

I'm not saying he's a bad player....    but I think he falls far short of being a "great player".....

 

Just sayin.....

That's an everyday risk given their profession. Plyometrics are a key group of exercises, especially for professional athletes.

Really? Basically slowing the frames down then speeding them up at the apex of his jump makes it look fake? Two functions a monkey could perform in basic video editing.

ACL's don't get torn from walking/running and jumping... :facepalm:

 

 

looked like a simple camera trick.  Perhaps he was jumping down and rhey reversed it and put the voice on later.

 

haha:facepalm:  He jumps from a completely different location than where he lands when coming off the stack... There is no trick..

It was coach speak. But he really is a pretty decent player even though he plays special teams.

    • They are likely kicking the can down the road, and the negative consequence is higher cap numbers for those players in future seasons, and greater cap penalties to move on from those players in future seasons. The thing is there's no much else they can do. they're set to be nearly $70m over the cap in 2021, and other than these restructures, they would not be able to get under the cap by the start of the new league year. They would have to cut or trade all of their highly paid players.
    • I feel the hype about Carl Lawson is from a combination of people who haven't really watched him play, and who overrate "pressures" by assuming that all pressures are equally disruptive.    Lawson is a tough, physical, high effort guy, he tackles well, plays the run reasonably well, he has decent size, and he would fit nicely as a DE for us. He's not a dynamic pass rusher, and I don't think he ever would be a dynamic pass rusher.   He has some quickness and speed, good speed to power, but he's not the kind of explosive pass rusher that blows up the other team's blocking schemes. He has below average bend and closing speed, and he takes a lot of steps, which explains his tragically poor three cone. He also has below average length, and gets neutralized by good blockers. This is all obvious on his tape, it was obvious on his college tape, and it's why he went in the 4th round.   TomDiggs mentioned Lawson's knockdowns/hits and hurries. PFF recorded six edge rushers with at least QB 15 hits; despite the fact that Lawson had 24 hits, he only had five sacks, which is the least sacks among those six players. In fact, there were ten edges with fewer than 15 QB hits, but with at least ten sacks. PFF has 24 edges with at least 30 pressures; Lawson had 34 hurries, but was tied for fifth fewest sacks among those 24 players. In fact, there were five edges with fewer hurries than Lawson, but at least ten sacks.   My point is that QB hits and pressures only show a player that manages to get near the QB at some point during the play. Without context, they don't necessarily show a player that makes a definite impact on the play. That's why I value PFF's pass rush productivity (PRP) stat, because sacks are weighted more heavily than hits and pressures. And that makes sense because a sack ends the play. A QB can be pressured, even hit, and still make a positive play. Recognizing a sack as nearly always a negative play for the offense, PRP shows the difference between a guy who gets near the QB, and a pass rusher who makes plays for the defense. Sometimes the overlap is not as great as you might think.   Lawson's PRP was 8.5, tied for #18, well separated from guys like Bosa (10.6) and Watt (9.7). In general, a player with a bunch of total pressures, but low sack numbers, like Lawson, is a guy who gets a bunch of pass rush snaps but doesn't have the length, bend and closing speed to get home often enough. This is why guys like Trey Hendrickson and Leonard Floyd can have a third fewer total pressures, but twice as many sacks as Lawson (Hendrickson also had 80 fewer pass rush snaps). And Lawson gets a ton of pass rush snaps because he plays for a bad team with no other good edge rushers, so as long as he's healthy he'll have a lot of pressures, but he'll probably never be a big sack guy.   He's Trey Flowers. Better 40, same agility, not as long, mid level edge rusher who is well rounded and a good guy to have on your team, but not a dominant pass rusher. I can't see offering him $14m/year to not sack the QB. Any projection that has him as a big time sack guy is unrealistic, IMO.
    • It's nice to see Pittman, Smith and Okereke get some love.
    • Did I misread your post?   Did you not say you were in favor of moving Nelson to LT?   That if we’re going to pay him top dollar, it would be better to do it with him as our LT instead of at LG?    That wasn’t you?    I’m sorry, I thought that’s what I responded to.... 
    • With me, road whites are off-limits.  As to the blue tops, as much as i do dig the color rush blues, I’m an old-school-uni guy, and would lean to white pants.   I’m in Penn State country, and there are some similarities i guess.   I do think improvements can be made in the striping.  Minimal enough cahange to keep purists happy, but could “update the uni.  Perhaps 3 stripes down the leg and middle of helmet.  Middle one thicker than sides.  Not crazy wide.... tasteful like the stripes on a shelby. The middle stripe could be horseshoes similar to the way seattle uses imagry.  Maybe a large horseshoe on each shoulder that circles down around the number.  Minimal...... but updated..... without losing the “brand.”   Remember that outdated font that was recently retired?  A small “refresh” might be nice.   I’d like to see a “ghosted” image of like padding texture or like metalplate image (barely noticeable) at shoulder pads, knee and thigh pads.  Like a 3d effect.   I remember oregon once had ghosted wings on the shoulders that were cool, bit not “too much.”
