Nelson's collapse

Recommended Posts

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?  If not, he better strengthen those legs or work on his footwork and lean.  He's not the guy we expect to be bull rushed like that.

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

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 trying to be disrespectful, but Nelson is not at all the problem

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+.

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

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

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

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

I'm confused.  This is akin to saying Peyton Manning threw an incompletion or Jerry Rice dropped a pass.  It happens to everybody from time to time.  These guys aren't robots.  They aren't perfect.

I seem to recall the original poster having a conniption over Ballard trading back for Nelson and passing on Darnold.  That should automatically bring his football acumen under question.

    • how many passes has he thrown badly prior to the field goal there’s a reason we settle for field goals when there’s plenty of time left  to not need vinny
    • Yes, you can evaluate JB fairly at this point.  He may not have the most glamourous receivers but he does have a damn good line and running game.  He has plenty of opportunities to make the read and deliver the pass. He simply fails to do this consistently, unless he is spoon fed by Reich.   The narrative that he is anything more than one of the top 5 worst quarterbacks in the league is crazy talk.  PFF had him ranked 26th a month ago, but even that is conservative considering they had him above Tannehill and Pittsburg is now playing Hodges.  I concur with them that he is around the 28th best starting QB in the league.  If we include backups I think he is around 30 to 32.  This make the decision much easier.
    • It’s a great question.  Most such decisions entail risk.  And, personally, I think it’s more common in the NFL to underestimating the risk of playing it safe by sticking with the slightly above average guys....and/or overestimating the risk of going in a different direction.   Of course, all of this has to be evaluated in the context of what’s possible rather than what would be ideal.  My kids think the Colts just need to go get Joe Burro — no matter how many times I explain to them that it’s not quite that simple.   So, I don’t have a good feel for what our alternatives are at this point.  It’s entirely possible that Ballard & Co. feel like we don’t have any better near-term options.  I have a high degree of trust in CB to make the best decision.  But I do fear (just because it’s so common) that we’ll just be waiting and waiting for Jacoby to reach his potential that they’re so certain is there.
    • sure but you would love it if we gave JB another 2 years or so to develop too lol
    • Harsh tones, lol.  I really don't care.  I know I am in the minority about support for JB but, if they decided to draft Jordan Love, guess what, I will still love and support my Colts and will support Love.    chill yourself
