Desir

Recommended Posts

Got to give some love to Desir. He's quietly been playing at a very high level. He has shut down some of the league's top receivers (Hopkins, Amari Cooper) and was matched up against Hopkins again today.

 

Before the game, Hopkins promised that he would not be shut down like last time. He emphatically stated that it would not happen again. Desir (and Deshaun Watson) held Hopkins to 5 receptions for 37 yards, again.

I salute Mr. Desir. He should have had that pick to put the exclamation point, IMO. What a breath of fresh air - him and Kenny Moore.

 

Pats fans are wondering why they did not hold on to Kenny Moore.

He did play great and has been doing so!

Does this game impact Desir’s value this offseason?! I could see a team like the Jets/Bucs giving him $9 million per year after watching him play the way he has the last 5 weeks. 

 

Would you be okay with paying him $8-$9 million? R. Melvin got paid, and he was not nearly the same player as Desir has been for us the second half of the year.

Ballard's ability to find talent is amazing. Both Moore and Desir were released by other teams.

 

Heck of a game by both players today. And Quincy did well at CB3 too!

If Desir is gonna put Hopkins on lock like these last 2 games, there’s no way Ballard doesn’t bring him back.

Are either of those two CB’s making 13+ million dollars a year because apparently, that’s what cb’s who cover number 1’s are making that kind of money. (Tampa bay cb quote). Our cb’s have been pretty good overall. Had some cracks here and there but for the money they are making, what steals.

I was listening to the radio broadcast driving home from the sports bar I watch the games from with other Colts Fans and they had Desir as defensive player of the game.  Moore received a lot of praise as well.

If he keeps playing this way, and after he had a pretty good season going last year before getting hurt, absolutely I bring him back at 9 mil, I’d be willing to go higher too.

I would say 8-10 million a year would be tops on him for me I wouldn't go any higher than that.

Hopkins may have been a little nicked but regardless, he did a very good job on this All-Pro WR.  Would have been nice if he had an int, I seen 2 opportunities, I know one bounced of the front of his shoulder pads so that made it difficult.  Still, good job.

After a game like this, I am more commited to the idea that we draft linemen with our  2 first picks.  I am leaving towards a strong safety with one of our first four picks , as no one can stay healthy at that position

I thought Desir earned his starting spot by his play last year, which was pretty good.  I didn't understand why he wasn't thought more highly of going into and during the season. I think a high draft choice on a corner is warranted, to pair with Desir, since Moore and Hairston are more suited to nickels and dimes.

Hairston? When was the last time he took a defensive snap? He may not be around next year.

Desir shut down Hopkins. Tons of respect to him, he was the MVP of the defense today.

I don't know...that Kenny Moore had himself a heckuva game as well.  Our young secondary is really starting to shine.

I see us holding on too him. After all Ballard has made it a point to say that he doesnt want to go get big FA and would rather spend the money with in on players who produce. Well Desir has produced

Desir and Moore have been very good. I’d like to retain them both if we can.

with our zone tampa 2 defense its hard to know how good he is its like sherman in seatle or any of their  corners look horrible away from seattle we do not play a lot of man coverage and our corners always have safety help our safeties play deep so our corners can always jump the route with the money we have i would guess we would take cheaper players

To be honest, I completely forgot that there was legitimate concern over letting Rasheen Melvin walk this past offseason. We never really missed a beat.

Desir was one of my favorite corners coming out of the draft that year. The guy has a ton of potential and it's showing out there on the field.

    • I don't agree.  Now the cream at the top is great, but there is a huge drop off to the next level.  I think most teams have as good or better WR history.     https://www.pro-football-reference.com/teams/clt/career-receiving.htm
    • Bill was very good.  He did suffer from some bad passing offenses.
    • While I agree Fountain has to work for it, I'd say he's probably in the driver seat assuming he's 100% healthy.   Patmon - raw guy who doesn't play to his size, and needs to add to, and improve his route tree. I doubt we keep 3 X WRs, and I don't see him jumping Pittman and Pascal for the top 2 spots. IMO, they'd have to move Pascal to run mostly out of the slot (which is possible) for him to take the #2 X spot. IMO, he ends up on the practice squad for a year unless we have an injury in the X area.   Johnson - the digs on him have always been his hands and his toughness. Unless he's become a lot more physical, his position flexibility is likely limited to Z. He's not going to be an X given the comp there, and unless he's tough enough to run across the middle as slot and catch, his chances are low IMO.    I do like Dulin, and he looked great when given a chance to return. He's a tough kid and could literally line up everywhere (although I prefer more size at X). I'd absolutely love to have him and Hines as our two primary return guys. Pascal could fill in as backup. I'd keep Campbell safely away from STs.   As far as Fountain is concerned, the biggest dig on him was his route tree. From everything I read, he worked his rear end off and improved dramatically in that area last off season. IMO, he plays bigger than he is, and could also line up just about everywhere like Dulin. 
    • yeah i might have gone over board with the super bowl talk. still it took peyton a while to win a playoff game but i think he deserved respect before that anyway 
    • since its a topic here i'll guess one more super bowl with PM, but not predicting 2-3 more dynasty    they are going to lose some good players after this contract and have to draft really well to keep it up.  hes also not the most durable qb and he does take some risks
