And to think there were some who thought Big Q shouldn't have been picked where he was. 

Crow for supper anyone?

Mine too even before we traded down. I was scared he would be picked before our pick came back around.

he makes all the talent around him just all that much better.  It's unbelievable the difference he makes, .. just night and day compared to the o-lines we've had in the past.  if we were healthier just a tad earlier in the season, oh the possibilities. oh and how many cases of dew did skip have to buy?

The pick was in the middle of the night here, so I remember getting up in the morning and immediately checking our pick, and I was soooo excited! Had a big smile on the face the rest of the day, but couldn't actually pin point why it felt so good... Now I know.

There is one thing seeing him do his thing in college but to see him bring it into the NFL and do it against NFL players is truly something special.

One thing I read, this game (Dallas at Indy) was the first game all season where Dallas did not register a sack.

 

And looking at the gamebook, Dallas only got 2 QB hurries all game.  That is some elite level line play.

It does make you wonder how Nelson treats our own D-Line players during practice! haha

Hopefully the same way.

 

A related but opposite example.  Tarik Glenn was always a good LT with the Colts but he always struggled with speed rushers.... until the Colts drafted Dwight Freeney, then Glenn became better at handling speed rushers and became a Probowl LT.

 

We, as fans, and the Colts as a team will see even more of that next year.  The dline will be something fierce after going up against AC, Q, Kelly, Glow and Smith all training camp next year.

That is testament to the play of all of the O-linemen.

Getting Kelly back made a big difference too.

I also remember Autry was one of the few who was giving Nelson fits in training camp.

IF things go the way I want Nelson will be sitting out the Pro Bowl because he will have a game the following weekend that is a bit more important.

Dang, Allen served up pancakes that whole drive down the field. I think as Nelson continues to get stronger and bigger he will be doing the same. Look what he's doing as a rookie, a kid.

I thought Allen was 350+? Looking up his size only said 6'3-325. Big Q 6'5-331.

 

Allen had ridiculous strength though. I remember during the pro bowl he hit 225 for like 53 reps!

Great thread, so many funny comments.

 

But seriously, that man is a beast!  Also, we should all realize what having Kelly and MAC back means to the run game.

He actually reminds me of a former Cowboy LG......Larry Allen.

 

Check this out for comparison.

 

http://www.nfl.com/videos/nfl-game-highlights/0ap2000000221061/Larry-Allen-dominates-Colts-in-1999

This was my comparison before the draft. Q is a rare, rare athlete. Not only is he the biggest, strongest guy on the field, he can move better than everyone else too. Ryan Kelly is a really big center who also moves very well for his size, and he is also incredibly smart. But what Q brings is just different. He is a problem for everyone, except us.

 

I remember Larry Allen running down a defensive back after an interception on MNF back in the 90s lol. He had that same strange combination of size, strength and pure athleticism, combined with a nasty demeanor. And he was also the most dominate OL I have ever seen. Q is the first guy Ive seen since that reminds me of Larry Allen. Its the ultimate compliment. 

 

He has been so good, he has been flagged more than Mike McGlynn and everyone is totally cool with it because he is clearly a beast among beasts. And he is only a rookie.

Maybe 2 All Pros with Kelly and Q ?

kelly would have been pro-bowl for sure had he not got injured, when he pulls out, is there anyone better? he's a masher.  I still don't think he's 100 yet either.

this is soooo disrespectful i think Q will be great but i've never seen anyone like Larry. Heck Larry's story alone is like the movie Blindside he came up very very rough. Larry would throw people and move people like rag dolls. He transcended the position hard to call him a generational player might be a once in a lifetime player. He was a freak. I think he ran like a 4.8 forty in the 90's at 325+ think about that. He could bench 700+ when he would pull he would almost murder people. People feared him from day one. If ya'll have time take a stroll through some youtube reels and even in these videos you don't get the full picture. Some people called Bruce Matthews the best OL some folks ever have seen. But Larry Allen is like the (Thing) from the fantastic 4 playing Guard in the NFL.

    • NFL.com's Profile   Draft Grade: 5.30 NFL BACKUP OR SPECIAL TEAMS POTENTIAL Draft Projection: Round 5 College: Mich St Position: S Height: 5-11 Weight: 213 40 Time: 4.52     BIO: Willis was named the Ann Arbor News Michigan High School Player of the Year in 2014 as a running back after he covered nearly 3,000 yards on the ground and scored 31 touchdowns. He didn't end up at Ann Arbor for college, signing with Sparty. Willis started 3 of 9 games played as a true freshman (11 tackles), but his season ended before the Big Ten Championship Game due to a broken foot. He started one game in 2016, making 30 tackles in 11 contests overall. An opening occurred in MSU's secondary for 2017, and Willis took advantage. He garnered honorable mention All-Big Ten honors that season, accumulating 71 tackles, 5.5 for loss, four sacks, two interceptions, and three pass breakups. He repeated his honorable mention all-conference performance as a senior, posting 84 tackles, two interceptions, and 10 pass breakups in 13 starts for the Spartans.   Overview: Team leader known for his leadership and work ethic, Willis has been a reliable performer with a good nose for the football. However, he's an average athlete with below-average speed who needs to keep plays in front of him, so finding a roster spot on the next level could be a challenge. His high football character and consistent effort level, give him a shot at finding work as a backup with special teams value .   Strengths: Praised for exceptional character Good size with compact build and desired play strength Plays with consistent motor and effort all game long Runs the alley with accurate map to the ball carrier Reliable and plays under control Reads quarterback's eyes for early indicators in coverage Sees the entire field from deep safety Handled some slot cover duties in sub-packages Good awareness from short zone and responds quickly to throws   Weaknesses: Below-average athlete lacking explosiveness Top-end speed is a concern Struggles to range over the top from deep zone Slow to open hips and sprint with early speed Tight strider with below-average burst to close Limited lateral agility to maintain man coverage Very modest ball production    
    • 1. Again that is how people view QBs rather that is fair or not   2. Im referring more from a talent perspective   3. Its more to justify Luck as a talent.
    • I like that there's evidently a clear plan for developing and using him, and I think that's true for everyone they added this year. We'll see how it plays out, but I expect that they'll be trying to put guys in position to excel, not trying to force them to do something they aren't good at.   I think this shows with the Funchess signing. Definitely not my favorite acquisition, and I wanted them to go in a different direction, but Warren Sharp posted splits showing how Funchess performed on certain routes, and compared it with how Luck produces when throwing to those routes. It seems like an ideal match for our offense, and I think the front office and coaching staff identified that together, and went out and got him. I don't think they'll ask him to be a downfield burner, I think they're going to use him on curls, outs, and maybe slants, and I think it's going to add a dimension to the offense, especially on big downs when defenses play tight man coverage.    If they took a similar approach with the players they drafted -- what's the plan for this guy on our team, and how do we develop his traits so that he can excel in this role? -- it will show in the way they use them right away. Tell, Campbell, Willis, Banogu... all have traits that can be tapped into right away.
    • So I'm a little confused now. Are you basing your views on the roster that the QB is playing with instead of the QB himself? I don't see how you can say the AFC championship game on only had "3 great players."    If you ask me has Luck done more with less then some other QB's then that answer is 100% yes. But your question is How do you view Andrew without a championship?       Not how Andrew Luck will be viewed because he doesn't have great teams around him.
    • 1. If my aunt had a set, she'd be my uncle.  Marino didn't win 6 so who cares?   2. The larger point is I am lost on your arm talent argument.  Who cares who had the best arm?  That is only one small component of what makes an elite level QB.  Greg Maddux is a HoF pitcher and he had not close to the velocity of Kyle Farnsworth, who can only get into the HoF if he bought a ticket.  In an NFL comparison, Joe Montana did not have near the arm that Marino or Elway did but he is clearly among the best QB's ever to play the game. 3. I don't care about the Colts 2014 roster.  I know who was on the team and I don't think they would have been a good match up for the 1970 Steelers. I am simply saying that you don't really know if it was the worst roster to make the AFCCG in history.  It's over an over the top argument simply made to prove a point you can't make otherwise.
