We can definitely tell when he isn't in the lineup....

 

Boehm did okay in pass pro, but you can see the difference in the running lanes with Kelly in there!

 

Yeah I thought Boehm filled in very nicely which is good going forward to know we have someone capable of stepping in for Kelly.  That being said Kelly this year is easily one of the best centers in the league.  I don't think teams really enjoy going up against the left side of the OL in general, right side is still playing stout as well.

IMO it's a combination of Kelly and Mo Alie-Cox. @krunk and I called it before the game. Both of them(or rather Kelly and a good run blocking TE) are key to our running game now that Doyle is out for the season. Mo is incredibly underrated runblocker. I know people don't usually watch the TE on running plays but when you can...  follow Mo for a few plays... for a basketball player his play strength, his technique and his willingness to get his hands dirty is incredibly impressive. There was a thread on here earlier this week about a potential TE to draft to replace Doyle when he ages/when his contract expires. IMO Cox has a real chance to be this player. He's doing the dirty and hard work and he still has a ton of upside in the passing game because he has the athleticism and hands to catch balls. I still want to see him catch and run, but I'm loving what I'm seeing from him so far. 

 

But lets get back to Kelly. I love Kelly. One of the few good things Grigson did for this team. As others have said... Boehm looks OK and many teams would love to have stability at C like Boehm can provide but with Kelly we are not talking about stability... we are talking about pushing the line, we are talking moving the needle with him. He can be an all pro center IMO. It's only a question of health IMO. If health permits it he probably gets there sooner rather than later.

Man talk about difference maker. That O-Line was dominant. Him coming back was so major. I admittedly slept on him but he killed it!! Big Kudos to him

Yes, he should be All-Pro if not somethings definitely wrong the system.

Kelly was excellent today, his ability to get to the second level is outstanding. It was no coincidence at all our run game went up a notch or two. I think in time himself and Nelson will be the best C/G combo in the league.

 

Just on Nelson, man.. i love this guy too

The run game was night and day with Kelly in there. Very impressed. First game I got to see live all year. Very fun! Loving this team right now!

Lock him up in the off-season with some of that cash.

 

Our line is healthy overall this year and playing lights out at times.

And? We have two rookies on our line. One was a guard playing RT. Plus we have a back up to the back up at RG. This colts o-line is savage

Just now, Boiler_Colt said:

Haeg also played really well.  I think Glowinski is still better, but RG is his natural position IMO

I agree, he looked much much better at RG. Not so hot out in space or blocking edge rushers

I feel like so many people undervalue just how important and valuable Kelly is to our offense. When he's in the lineup, our running game is so much better. Also, he helps Luck so much in the passing game by not allowing defenders to bull rush into Luck. Nelson and Kelly are so good together!

You drank it. It was just clearly the Cowboys flavor.  Better check the expiration date though.  Seems like it left a bitter taste in your mouth.

He seems to have been affected by the addtion of Q in multiple ways.

  You know how guys puff their chests out when a new "buck" enters the fray?  Big Q has raised the testosterone level of all our OL.  

  Also its crazy how many times i watch a running play , only to notice big Q laying on top of someone as the runner goes by.  Regularly.  Every one of our OLmen seem tougher, more physical all of a sudden.  You see it more often on the D side of the ball i guess.

Our O Line was most definitely crushing it today.  They were constantly getting to the 2nd level in the running game and smacking the Dallas linebackers.  I almost (not really) felt bad for those guys because they were often caught standing on the tracks expecting Mack to come through the hole but it was often The Big Q train that they ran into...

I wonder what the record is for an offensive lineman in pan caking defensive players? Q must b on pace to break it hahaha

On one of the pregame shows, Demarcus Lawrence said some slick crap about facing Smith.  Something like “Who is that?  Never heard of him.  He was gonna wreck house regardless”.  Well he’ll remember the name and the game going forward...

I think Kelly and Nelson feed off each other.  One without the other and this OL is just ho-hum.  But get those two together and it's beast mode like we saw today.  Welcome back Mr. Kelly!

Today Kelly showed why he’s special. He makes the correct calls for the entire line and he can dominate in space. If Kelly can stay healthy along with the rest of the O-line, the Colts can run the table.....because they will be able to run the ball. I’m excited for the next 2 weeks. Seeing basically the youngest team in the NFL ( minus Vinny) playing at a winning level right now is phenomenal.

I would full on hate Grigs if not for the Kelly pick. In pass pro he always seems to shuffle his guy to give Andrew a pocket to step up in. The addition of Nelson is paying dividends all across the line.Couldn’t ask for a better center than Kelly.

I still hate Grigs for picking Werner and not Hopkins. Could you imagine our offense with Hilton and Hopkins at WR?

That would be ridiculous. How could you cover them? Grigs was a poison for this organization that is finally getting bled out. People can say what they want about Irsay but he did make a grand slam hire with Ballard. Reich was a gift from the football gods.

I just got done watching the nfl twitter post of marlon macks runs and my god you are right about cox.  He was destroying his opponents on the run blocking.  He was doing an amazing job at it.  I definitely underestimated him in that but he did a great job in the run game for sure

Just shows the importance of a dominant O line and how it affects the outcome of a game

And how the dominant O line can make or break a running back.  If it was up to me we would continue to go after stud O lineman.  Nothing lasts for ever and one or two injuries can change everything.  Plus you do need to cycle the talent.  You can't pay everyone on the line big bucks so there always needs to be new guys coming in.

 

This line is really performing right now and I would love to see that continue.

    • Yep. Up until that neck injury I don’t think manning missed a snap his entire career here.
    • Andrew has had 3 maybe 4 injuries since the beginning of his career, manning only missed one season here. So no worries the bad luck was all Bob's. 
    • that guy is too short, has no wheels, and has to take a time out after every 6 attempts. will never make it.. nice jugs though
    • The facts.. a hung jury (twice) mistrial with most voters having sided for the alleged accuser/victim... both times.     She (prosecution) didn't drop the charges, the school (judge/jury) did.  She wanted round 3.  She wanted a full yes or no vote (4-1 or 5-0) either way, not we're split 3-2 so we'll just call it against the majority vote and designate as "Not Responsible" because it isn't 4 or more votes either way. - 'Case closed'.     There were questions (and other items) from the accuser that were never allowed in or asked in follow up questioning.  I think one of the changes to the Stanford Title IX hearing rules is to also allow an attorney to be not only in attendance but to also perform all duties of representation.  And an outside group determines what is admissible as questions/evidence, follow questions, etc...     At some level, it did, and many things at Stanford were changed after. At the  minimum, it was a mistrial x2, with no conclusive verdict either way. Then school (not prosecution) drops the case.   So she really needed to report this to both the school, and also the Police.  But with what evidence does she have to convince the LEO?  Guess the gals need some hidden body cam w/audio these days, like many folks do with dash cams (like me and my wife's cars...) and be their own TMZ...   Video, apparently the only way things get rectified anymore...     No worries, at least we know each others positions.  All is good.     Except to have (at some level) differing story from a another high achieving Stanford student about another high achieving Stanford student-   https://www.collegesimply.com/colleges/california/stanford-university/admission/     We don't even know for certain they ever got the FULL story, but articles I've read suggest that the Stanford Panel repressed/disallowed many/most of her interrogating questions and supplemental follow up inquiries to be asked of the accused.  Unless someone directly asks her directly, how could you answer as to whether her whole story was even heard or not?   If you are not truly interested to fully know those answers, then you don't ask.  At least, that's my perspective.
