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.

 

Its not disrespectful at all. Q is pancaking everyone already just like Larry did. And Larry didnt run a 4.8, he was more like a 5 flat, which is incredible for a man of his size. But I dont think Q is far off that himself. He is really quick in his own right, and even bigger than Larry.

 

In case you havent noticed, Nelson is also feared from "day 1" as you put it.  Trust me, everyone has taken notice of this kid. I am fully aware of the absurdity of the comparison, and I absolutely know how good he was, but Nelson is doing things I have only seen 1 other guy do. How could I not compare him to that player?  He still hasnt even had a full year of NFL Strength and conditioning yet, give the kid a couple years of that and see what happens. Larry Allen 2.0

 

You are remembering Larry Allen (possibly on steroids btw lol), at his peak, and comparing him to Quenton Nelson as a rookie. I am just comparing the two as rookies, based off physical attributes and pure ability.

That's what I got from that video...

I'm going to steal the name of Qhop from here on out.

The nick name couldn't be more fitting for this beast, 

thanks Pelt.

I love Q....very happy we have him. Not going to lie I wanted Chubb who also is having a fabulous season but not going to complain now. That said before we go comparing him to HOF lineman let's see him sustain this level for a decade or so before putting him up with the legends of the game. That said certainly he has played at a pro bowl level this year and is well on his way to an incredible career.

It was a Cold rainy game against the Jets , It was the  annual Jets - Colts game back in the old AFC east days. I dragged my friends to it,  at this point in the season the Colts have failed to get a victory, we snuck  up to the front, the stadium was empty, two crappy teams in crappy weather,  I had a crew of friends who bought tickets outside for five dollars We spent the whole game screaming,  "Baldinger "" Baldinger' he was into it, earned everyone respect, Ill never forget him going wild, waving his hands,   the Colts won that game, it was the only victory of the season,

    • Have you researched both QBs or just angry for a certain reason?   Rivers has done far more! 
    • That's what I mean with the whole, "no one knows when/what happened". We have no right to know, but it's the source of all the angst and speculation.... Seems so easy to just be rid of it.  "I tweaked my ankle third day of practice, not too severe, but it's high on the ankle"   That would have been divulged I feel, as it almost always is when a player hurts something in organized team activities....    Why the mystery around this one?  They have had no problem confirming injuries in the past, kidney, ribs, other players....  But when it's Luck, AND in the off-season....that combination is seemingly always treated differently.  Just an observation.
    • I still believe the calf was healed and he injured the ankle on that third day of practice. I don’t think he had the ankle issue popped up until camp.
    • @Blueblood23 @Reidm   Care to give us some insight on your choices given some of the data in the OP? Thanks!     I said last year, that WR was by far our biggest limitation on O, and lack of QB pressure and Ints from our D needed to improve. I think we've helped out all three of those areas. The only thing I wish we would have done, is a picked up the a legit iDL.
    • Luck has proven he's plenty capable and willing to play through pain.... No one who's watched his career can doubt this.     What I can't understand, and it's admittedly complicated by the fact no one knows for certain how he hurt his ankle, let alone when.... Is why is Luck apparently without any sense of urgency when it comes to his own injuries or rehab during the off-season?   I don't mean he should rush through rehab or healing processes, but if I'm not wrong, this is the second time in his career he's had an entire off-season to fix an issue that was "rumored" to have been caused early in the off-season, in non football related activity, and he's just seemingly waited around until late in the off-season to address the health issue... It's like he always opts to just rest it and hope it gets better, which is fine.... Surgery or other measures are always a last resort... And then it gets worse, or is reinjured.... I guess he just seems way less proactive when dealing with injuries.   I dunno, it just seems odd, and it's a subject that no one really mentions or tries to address.  Dude has every right to snowboard, cliff dive, whatever he wants in his off-season and free time, but he seems to be the only guy who comes down with "snowboarding" injuries in August that then linger and bleed over into the preseason or early season...   Sorry for rambling.... Too much coffee today lol
