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

He's a contributor on Special Teams.

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.

    • That sounds good.    I would be fine with 6-8 pm and 9-11 pm ET with a 5 minute window for picks, so 16 picks should be done in 120 minutes. It would be like the real draft starting Day 3, where they get only 5 minutes between picks.     Would you have time around the beginning of April to help moderate this along with me? If it is a small window of time, it is a smaller time commitment on my front and yours, so I like this idea.   I can ask @NFLfan @csmopar and @danlhart87 again if they would be willing to make themselves available for those small windows of time thus giving us plenty of options. Let us bring this thread back up then.
    • First of all, I'd say bad fit for us. He's a 3-4 DE. In our system he'd be a tweener, or maybe even a 3T.  Great against the run, average vs the pass. Very solid 3 down guy overall in a 3-4.   IMO, even if he was a fit, we don't need run D help, and he'd be too expensive. Overall just not the benefit and value we need.    
    • Here's what we did on another board a few years ago. Worked out pretty good. 1 Round per evening 2 windows each night... picks 1-16, and then 17-32 (I think it was 7p-8p and 9-10, but could have been 8-9 and 10-11). That way, guys new pretty much when they needed to be there, and only needed to pay attention for roughly an hour per day. Really not even that long. Also gave the mods some time between windows to tidy up. 3 minute clock hence the "flash" term. If you miss a pick, you drop 5 spots (basically giving them an extra 15 minutes). If they missed it a second time, they get bumped to the end of the round and have up to an hour before the next days round starts. If they miss that, they get best player based on their primary needs.  We had 3 threads going at once, and 3 moderators. One thread for the pick announcements and general comments, one with a constantly updated order and big board, and one to manage trades. The big board management was great in terms of keeping it going and checking off who is gone. We also published team needs, but I can't remember if we tracked it except for using it when folks missed their window. Only trades allowed are pick for pick(s) so very little approval needed. No picks for existing players (We did the mock post FA fury, I think we started about 2 weeks prior to the draft).
