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,

    • In all seriousness though, it would be great if you guys could settle your differences, end this beef and move forward.......you’re both awesome contributors to this forum in your own ways and add some great X’s and O’s and insight that dummies like myself learn a lot from.  This is an open place to express our opinions, and you both know the saying, lol!!!   Why can’t we be friends????    
    • I see the safety depth as really good among those likely to make the roster: Willis, Odum, and Farley.  But after that, it’s a big step down: Milligan and Johnson, and previously Kindred.  I wonder if Tell could be kept on the roster and be given back-up Safety duties.  He probably needs more work before he’s ready to contribute too much at CB...
    • I rewatched the game as I thought this would be pretty strange as well.  He did not play in the fourth except for his usual special teams slot.     I was confused as well by those who say he had a bad game.  He gave up one completion where he got turned around.  Other than that he was glued to his man as usual.    I think he's still having trouble living down his reputation from his rookie year. 
    • depth wise, S, OL, and iDL are my biggest concerns. if folks were grading positions ( starters and depth), i'd be surprised if many graded safety in the top half.  outside of Hooker, lots of questions, at least to me. i definitely don't agree with Venturi. ESPN doesn't either. Hopefully the starters stay healthy, and Willis grows into a stud.
