Devin Funchess All or Nothing

Recommended Posts

Definitely pulling for him to turn things around. You'd hope our culture can help with that. He comes across as a likeable guy in his interviews.

 

It does make me think about that whole incident he had with Brissett in practice. Which sure, that's just one instance. No big deal. But if we start to hear about more stuff like that happening in practice/throughout TC, things will get interesting.

I think Andrew lucks demeanor will help with that. I remember a video surfacing with luck and Ebron last year. Ebron was upset with something and luck went over there and told him it’s ok he was doing good. 

 

This story is a carbon copy of what Ebron went through on Detroit.

Makes me wonder who we were competing with for his services at the price he got.
And his personal issues require some significant care.
 Oh ya, i expect him to do what needs to be done, and wish him well.

If you have amazon prime you can watch it on there. I think Ebron is going to be a huge mentor for him.

I am going to sign up for prime and watch this. From what I am reading it’s really hard to watch. Apparently funchess was just crying out for help and there was no leadership on that team. I don’t think that happens with the colts. If players are going through a rough time the other guys will be there for them.

If you read the article it elaborates on the issues. Having a friend murdered ect. From the looks of it there was also no leadership on that team. Ron Rivera from what I am reading did do a great job with him. Coming to Indy will give him a fresh start.

All I read from that is that on two separate occasions he was frustrated. The first just after having a friend murdered, very understandable. the other after having a really poor game while hurt players scream at refs all the time so I don't hold that against him and he could have handled the media better but he wasn't even really that bad then.

Thanks.    Good read.    But sad read.

 

I'd say,  he's come to the right franchise.   I think the front office, the coaching staff and his teammates will take good care of him.    And I think we will use him right.   We will play to his strength.

 

Hopefully,  Funchess will turn into Ebron 2.0.

 

Thanks for linking this.....

I read the article, then I watched the entire series, and honestly, the series made me a bit less optimistic than reading the article. I saw a good hearted young man, with no character concerns, however, he seemed to be a guy who can't handle pressure and adversity too well. I hope I'm wrong.

With the Colts getting rid of Inman and keeping Rogers instead, Funchess really needs to step in and be what we all hope he can be and be a great #2 WR. 

 

With Hilton, Funchess, Ebron and Doyle as all legit pass catching options (not to mention RB's out of the backfield) I would be having nightmares if I was an opposing DC trying to gameplan against that.

Sounds a lot like Ebron in Detroit. Hopefully a fresh start will help him.

I believe P Campbell is going to shock some people as well Brother . Ready to get the party started . Hopefully we make it through camp without any major health issues .

This is a excellent read. Makes you really want to pull for him. He came into the league so young I hope he can finally put it all together. This sounds exactly like the Ebron story in Detroit. A young kid who just needs to mature.

I only watched 2 episodes, but the one thing I noticed about Funchess was when he laid out that safety who took that cheap shot on Cam Newton when he slid. I like that, a lot.

From the series too, gotta say...Mike Adams is a proper leader. Colts have moved on but his leadership stands out.

That's been kinda the dig on him at both scUM and in Detroit. He was given plenty of time to develop IMO. He was asked to be the guy in 17 when KB and GO got injured. He did OK, but still didn't eclipse 1000. In 2018, he let a rookie steal the #1 spot.

 

I'm just hoping he's matured, and makes the best of a fresh start. He simply needs to make the best of every pass tossed his way, and he'll be fine. He has the potential to be a RZ beast like Ebron.

I was binging this the other day while grilling meat, and I wasn't sure I would come back to finish it. Having read this article, I'm going to pick it back up for sure.

I'm going to try and watch some episodes of All or Nothing this weekend.  My wife normally takes care of the kids during the day and we watch a little Netflix/Prime/Hulu at night together after the kids have gone to bed but before we do.  But she isn't interested in this sort of thing.  

 

However my wife works part time overnight shifts a couple weekends a year while I stay with the kids (as they are sleeping and also the next day while she sleeps).  And she is working this weekend.  So I should have some time to watch it.

    • 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.
    • lol... you wrote a novel. while i didn't read it all, i did skim. the mock draft stuff, it wasn't a poll. it was a well defined systemic grading. if you're mom can do well on the 1st round, why didn't your favorite guys? lol. on the wide receiver study, it was laughable. no defined parameters, no comparative cross position stats, etc.. not even Busch league stuff.  like i said, legend in your own mind.   in terms of who can dish it out, but can't take it, look at your reaction above to a "sad".... what a rant/tantrum.....  self awareness is obviously not your strongest trait. feel free to "crush" me anytime... gives me a good laugh.
    • very astute observations!!
    • You live your life like the Coyote chasing the Road Runner....    and you keep running into the mountain side,  or running off the cliff....     OK....    you're not going to change....   So, I'll take apart your nonsense --- again.    This will be the longest post I've ever made,  trying to answer all your nonsense.    Doubt you'll read it.    But here it comes....     Of course we know if Luck's injury, whatever it is,  ISN'T minor.   What minor injury do you know lasts four months?    He barely participated in any off-season program.    Does that sound like a minor injury?    The Colts have NEVER, EVER called it minor.   Not once.  The only thing they've said is he hopes to be back by certain deadlines,  and he's missed almost every one.    Does that sound like a minor injury?    This paragraph may confuse you.   It's full of common sense and logic.   I don't know how you got the nerve to try to argue that no one knows.   Unbelieveable!   Nope.   No Tantrum from me.   Just pointing ot what should be obvious,  but apparently the obvious isn't obvious to you.     By the way,  while you were giving me a sad on my post to my friend CBE,   do you know who was giving me a "like"?    CBE.    I criticized his post and he still gave me a like.    He know while we may not agree,  he knows I'm not trying to pound him.   I'm  trying to be as honest and factual as I can.    No wonder you can't see for yourself.   What triggered me, was your latest attempt to sound like you know what you're talking about.   You judged Willis on half of the first pre-season game.    That's all you've got.    That's it.   Doesn't even occur to you that that is.....   NOTHING!    Hello?    And you present it like it should be taken seriously,  when it should be laughed at.    Goodness gracious, you want to go back to the media draft comparison?    I was hoping for your sake that you wouldn't.    But since you insist.     Did you ever really look at that poll?   Seriously,  did you look at the four category breakdown?    Did you see what was actually involved?    If you did,  you shouldn't have been crowing about it.    First,  what I care about from guys like Kiper and McShay and Jeremiah and others isn't just the first round.   My  momma can do a decent job on the first round, and she's been dead for nearly 30 years!    I care about their view on ALL ROUNDS.   And your survey was only about the first round.   That's it.   There were four categories.    In three of them,  the leader got no more than 50%.   That's it.   The best person in three of the four categories scored no more than 50 percent.   When the top guy is scoring no more than 50 percent and everyone else is close behind,  then no one really knows anything.    And the one category that the winner did well in --- one category --- he scored in the 90's.   And everyone else was right behind him.    So, most everyone did well in ONE OUT OF THE FOUR categories.   Big stinking deal.    I tried to tell you this silly survey didn't support what you believed but you wouldn't listen.   No surprise there.  All you cared about the results.   The fatal flaw.     Finally,  without a single fact,  you offered this opinion in that post.    I remember it like it was yesterday,  that your new age guys were doing a better job than the more traditional scouts.   Based on one poll.   One poll of one round.    And you said the older guys like Kiper and company were resting on their laurels and not working as hard.   Nope, the old guys were covering all seven rounds.    Most of your guys,  covering one round.   You have no facts to support that, but that's your view.    When logic and common sense would tell you that the guys I prefer make a ton more money and have their reputation at stake.    They have more to lose.    There's no way they're resting on anything.    But you'll say ANYTHING to try and prove a point.   There's no argument you won't twist to try to win an argument, no matter how foolish the argument is.   I've told you publicly and privately,  you're not interested in honest debate.   You're the least honest poster here.  You're only interested in winning and you'll do anything, say anything to do that.      As to the WR study.    You got crushed.   I'm talking about a bank safe fell on you and your response was to talk about cherry picking stats.    Either English is a second language or you don't know the meaning of the words.     I made two links for you.    One was almost identical to yours.    Yours covered 25 years dating back to a time when passing rules were dramatically different so comparing a receiver from 1990 to one from 2018 was silly.   We're playig a different game now.    My first link covered 20 years from 1995 to 2014 .   There was great over-lap in the two studies.  But the conclusions were entirely different.   The only reason I used it was your post said roughly 60% percent of 1st Round WR's were successes.    Mine said roughly 40%.   Guess which one you preferred?    Surprise!   Then the second link was one of my own making.    I listed every 1st round WR since Luck came into the league in 2012.  That's 7 years.   The last 7 years.   I put into bold each 1st Round WR who was clearly a success.   It came to 41%.   It also showed how few WR's have been taken in the last few drafts.   That's the NFL talking, in case you weren't paying attention.    You didn't dispute one WR.    Not one.   But you called it cherry picking.   Clearly you don't know how to use that expression correctly.    And now you throw out a list of criteria as if you're making the rules here.   Here's another free tip.   You're not.   Never have.   I'm not surprised you don't recognize the facts I put into posts.   You don't use them.   You're all about the opinion.   Most posters here are.   Because that means every single poster can simply say.....    "I'm entitled to my opinion."    Yes, they are.   Everyone is,  even you, who has no need for facts.    But what you're not entitled to is your own facts.    Just like you stated Funchess was a terrible signing based on your facts,  and it never even occured to you that Ballard and Reich had other facts that showed DF could be useful to us.    You actually thought you knew more than they did?!?    Again, unbelieveable.   You had no facts to support your nonsense about Reich being a poor play caller.   You had one game.   And I called you on it.   You've been doing a very bad back-peddle ever since,  but that's your view, with no facts to support it.   In fact all the facts support the exact opposite view.   Yet, you still try to claim victory.   It's so intellectually dishonest that it's nauseating.   And so I observed,  that with almost nothing to base it on,  you thought Willis has inconsistancies.    Thanks, Capt. Obvious.    Tomorrow will likely be sunny during the day,  turning to widely scattered darkness at night.    Anymore obvious insights?   Funny, how you now publicly call for me to ignore your posts,  when a few days ago,  in a thread I was barely even in,  you took a completely uncalled for shot at me.    Or does the phrase "legend in his own mind" not mean anything to you?      Bottom line....    you can dish it out,  especially when you think no one is looking.....   but you can't take it.   Glass ego.   I call a fraud a fraud.
