[John Owning] Colts DE Jabaal Sheard is the player who kicks the most butt but fans know the least

Recommended Posts

With some consistent pressure from the opposite side, Sheard could really break out this year. He was doing it by himself most of the time.

The unfortunate reality is that too many believe that every player on a bad team is bad and every player on a good team is good.  Too little credit goes to the warriors on a bottom five team.

You reminded me of a play in the Pittsburgh game where Sheard gets triple teamed, because there's no threat from the other edge (2:50 mark in the video highlights).

I'm glad Sheard is getting some cred here. He played very well last year and might just flourish in the new 4-3. Certainly a key member of the D this year.

Expanding on this very good thought.....

 

Too many also believe that every coach on a bad team is a bad coach.

 

There was considerable astonishment when most of our assistants were quickly scooped up.      What?    Other teams thought we had good assistants?     How is that even possible?     That was the theme here in January and February when that happened.

There was some poor coaching by some members of the  staff. But this also reveals that the talent level was not good, and the head coach stunk. You can't overcome that combination no matter how good an Asst. Coach you may be, and I suspect most of them got a pass because of it.

He was good in the 3-4 and is supposed to be better in the 4-3. it seems like we got him some help in the draft, so the arrow is up!

    • FWI  I was listening to a local sports talk radio show discussing The Bills and who should they target in FA.   Second player on his list was Glowinski of the Colts to help bolster the interior of their OL. 
    • I wonder if there will be a scenario where the Colts could trade up for Oliver.   The guy I would love to trade up for would be Rashan Gary. I know he underperformed in college...but I don't care...from a skill set...he is the perfect fit for LDE in this defense.   I also really like Ferrell and Josh Allen (who is like a stronger Leonard with pass rush moves).   If the Colts had a playoff season and still got one of those four guys...wow.
    • Actually I think a performance deficiency is more harsh than a talent deficiency.  Performance means they didn't do their job well.  talent means they lack the attributes he is looking for.  To make it simple, if you want a guy with 4.5 speed but the current guy is a 4.7 speed guy, he may perform to the best of his abilities but doesn't have the skill or talent the position requires. My criticisms of you are derived from reading you posts, nothing more.
    • Just read where DT Gerald McCoy of the Bucs could get released for cap reasons.  They would save 13m.  His production is still very good and he would be turning 31 next month.  He's younger than Woods and Hunt.  
    • Agree 100%. I used to run a company before I retired and you cannot have discontent from one person as it spreads malcontent in the entire company fast. I will pass on the malcontents.
