Nelson's failure to hold ground against Heyward cost Brissett and the team.  Several times this year linemen and even linebackers have gotten the better of him one on one.  Is he hurt?  Was he tired? 

I am utterly convinced you haven’t watched a single down of him. He has absolutely been dominant this year. That push might just have been the only pressure he has allowed this entire season. Not tryi

I mean, he’s an amazing talent and player. Eventually everyone that plays Oline is gonna get beat. Nelson didn’t make Rigo hold the ball weird and Vinny miss the kick. Nelson didn’t make receivers drop balls. Nelson didn’t make refs give some terrible calls. Just get off it.

Q was without Kelly on his wing for the first time this year. He also had Heyward who is elite in his face every down, plus Watt to worry about stunting all over the place who is elite, plus Bush who is in the discussion for RoY. He didn't have a great game, but silly to talk collapse.

I urge you to go watch the play again. Heyward got away with a hand underneath Qs face mask. Should have been an illegal hands to the face penalty. No lineman is goi to hold up if the Dline is allowed to push up on his face mask in that manner. Big Q is fine. This was just one of the many calls that didn’t go our way and it cost us our starting QB

Thanks.  And he got a little hands to the face that wasn't called on that play.  Other players get paid too, and Heyward is a good player, but he got away with one yesterday.

Yep - Nelson is a bust.  Better cut him now!

 

What's interesting is that Nelson was still in between Brissett and Heyward at the time of the incident.  He was still blocking his guy.  You could say maybe Brissett needs a little better pocket awareness and move a little.  Then this wouldn't have happened.

 

Hey - it's football and these things do happen.

If someone gets your facemask or under your face, they can be a third of your size and dominate you.  I remember playing football as a kid and this is what you did if you wanted to toy with the bigger players (as long as you could then promptly outrun them)

Has the original poster ever seen Cameron Heyward? He's a 9 year vet, made pro bowls, and is just as big as big Q 6'5" 300+.

 

In the trenches, You win some, you lose some. And I don't care who you are, Cam Heyward is a grown azzzz man. He demands respect. Period.

I've also been astounded by the trend of the "talking heads" to either:

 

1.  Ignore the atrocious refereeing in the game on Sunday completely; or

2.  Use several other examples of poor calls, but ignore this flagrant, illegal use of the hands by Heyward on Quentin Nelson's face mask.

 

Some have even criticized QN for his "collapse", when even a cursory look  at the tape shows Heyward's left hand pushes directly up on Quentin's jaw. Yes, he was bull-rushed, but he probably could have re-established position (in fact, he never lost position, just leverage) except for the aforesaid hands to the chops.

 

The tragedy is that we lose JB for the rest of that game, and the Steelers steal the win. 

 

 

Just want to slap someone... in the face! Kudos to those who took the time to notice the un-called foul, and comment on it appropriately. I've "liked" or "thanked" many of you: this was the great untold story of Sunday's fiasco of a game.

What really got me was the fact they called it a few series later on one of our guys.

 

Just my opinion but one of the coaches prolly got on a refs case about it and the refs threw it back at us. Of course I’m inclined to believe those refs were the spawns of satan as well.

The original poster made one comment and then "left the scene of the crime."  Typical troll behavior.  Got some of us riled up but as we can see from the posts here we all know that comment was just garbage anyway.

Every now and then a hall of fame QB throws a pick six. Every now and then a hall of fame W.R. drops a pass. Every now and then a hall of fame return man can’t get pass or gets lit up by the kicker (Pat MAC). Here lately our Hall of fame FG kicker misses another FG. And Sunday it was Big Q turn in the every now and then wheel. I took a lot of tests this way in school. But if I made a 93% on any given test I was pretty happy. Big Q has a 93% success rate. That means he’s a bad man on that front line. If the Colts would release him today. There would be a bidding war for him immediately. There is nothing wrong with Big Q

Nelson has been beat a number of times this year. Still he has made many more good plays than bad.

The o-line as a hole unit has taken a step back this year we made a mistake getting rid of that other coach it was working shouldn't have tried to fix it cause it wasn't broke.

The man is human he's not always going to look unbeatable the rest of the line after Kelly went out looked like hot garbage.

you mean Q is human and occasionally makes mistakes? He's still young and and the defenders he's gone up against are good too. 

 

Also, even the best have off days...remember Johnathan Ogden? Hall of Famer, but Freeney abused him regularly. It happens.

No if Heyward didn't get away with hands to the face nelson wouldn't have fallen on Brissett.

I think it is more a matter that our line struggles against the elite pass rushers... Watt, Miller, Bosa etc.

 

 this past week it was Bud Dupree and Cam Hayward

He needs to learn to toss it away if it isn't there half of the sacks are on him.

I’ll watch for that more but he seems to step up and move around well in the pocket.  Seems to sense the rush well. He may hesitate to throw.  Hopefully we will see this week

No offense, but do you know any descriptions other than garbage, hot garbage, trash, or stinks?

Wait, what?  Nelson was the #6 overall pick in his 2nd year.  He is supposed to be perfect and never make a mistake nor ever let his guy make a tackle.

 

 

 

 

 

Obviously the above is sarcasm.

Maybe, I think it's more both Denver and Pittsburgh have elite rushers and use a type of zone blitz scheme and neither JB nor Hoyer have proven to be good against the blitz, nor are they great at seeing it presnap so the line can adjust their blocking assignments

No time to troll, I am a true Indy fan trying to defend my team. Mr. Nelson is the best draft pick Indy has had in years 

 

My post only was referring to the original poster that was dissing Nelson. No one else that I saw had an adverse post.

    • We don't have a qb,  so no we don't need a wr more than a qb
    • My pick for QB would be Michael Gallup. Oh wait, he's a WR. Yeah then I will still take Michael Gallup as we need receivers more than a QB right now.   Send Rock to Dallas for Gallup. 
    • Gus Johnson is a play by play guy.   Romo is color commentator.   They don't have the same job.    Both are very good at what they do,  but they do different things
    • I see many of the draft "experts" talk about what the Colts will do in the draft.   The draft process on the QB position, even with all the improved scouting techniques is a highly flawed .   If you look at history some interesting facts come out. Drafting a QB in the first round is a high risk endeavor    In the past 9 Years 20 QBs have been drafted in the first round.  I wanted to come up with some metrics to see the % that have worked out with the team that they drafted them   I am "measuring" the results with the simple question,   Would the NFL team make the same draft decision, at their position in that years draft, in hindsight - Its a YES/NO decision   For the ones that are still TBD (last few years) I counted these as YES. The selection of Goff as a "NO" is not that he is a horrible QB, but a simple question.... If you could do the pick again would you take Goff at number 1 overall.....  my guess is the Rams would have gone another way   2012 Draft Round 1 1st Andrew Luck - YES 2nd Robert Griffin - NO 8th Ryan Tannehil - NO 22nd Brandon Wheedon - NO   2013 Draft Round 1 16th EJ Manuel - NO   2014 Draft Round 1 3rd Pick Blake Bortles - NO 22nd Johnny Manziel - NO   2015 Draft Round 1 1st - Jameis Winston - NO 2nd Marcus Marriota  - NO   2016 Draft Round 1 1st Jared Goff - NO 2nd Carson Wentz - YES 22nd Paxton Lynch - NO   2017 Draft Round 1 2nd Mitch Trubiski - NO 10th Pat Mahomes - YES 12th Deshaun Watsun - YES   2018 Draft Round 1 1st Baker Mayfield - YES 3rd Sam Darnold - NO 7th Josh Allen - YES 10th Josh Rosen - NO 32nd Lamar Jackson - YES   With this data, drafting a QB in the first round is a 30% hit rate   The folks that want to give up 2 or 3 first round picks to move up to get Fields or Wilson may want to think deeper on this   From my perspective, and looking at the analytics it would appear that drafting the best BPA OL, DL , CB, or even WR,  available at 21 is the safest approach   And going with an extremely low risk/ low cost FA (Winston) or if the deal is decent, offering a trade to get Matthew Stafford. (Stafford route is my first choice), but I wouldnt want to  get fleeced in the trade.   If the right LT isnt there at 21, there are a few FA OTs that we could pick up       Let me know your thoughts...........
