I'd probably rate it a 4.4.  Jacoby's pocket awareness and elite footwork is what really made that block!  Remember, Quentin's blocks will only block as far as Jacoby's block will block them.....:troll:.

 

Sorry been reading way too much of the hyper aggressive, and mostly asinine,  "Jacoby performace merge thread."

 

Obviously, that was dope! 

 

OFF TOPIC:  This team is on the right path, and just in case the humorless "admit hes elite" crowd is watching, I think Brisett is a huge part of it.

 

That first Texans game was Obi-wan's signature win.  Im looking forward to a repeat performance on their turf Thurs.  Houston is gonna make us win thru the air again.  And although our pass pro has been suspect lately I believe Jacoby is up to the task. 

 

+/- 300 passing yrds, 3 TDs.  (0 int, 1 forced fumble). 

 

Very excited, possibly to the point of homer-ism, for TNF!  This is the biggest (pre playoff) GOTY.

So you troll the fans who are positive about JB and then put this up? :troll:

How sweet of you.

It was the biggest "I'm obviously joking" sign I could find on short notice.  Yet, here you are again, quoting only a portion of the post. 

Once again leaving out the portion where I'm very positive about Jacoby, and his role in the upcoming Thursday night tilt vs the Texans.  

 

I'm not sure if it's to support some odd agenda (?) Or to create some sort of artificial controversy (?)  Either way I guess it's fine.  You seem to be having a good time and I'm all for that.  I just wanted to find out if what I thought I was seeing was accurate.

 

I'm not sure "why" you do what you do but it's helpful, for future reference, to understand "what" it is that you do.  

 

Fingers crossed for a big win on Thursday, I know we can agree on that!

It's very rare to see a guard like that. One who is actively looking for a blitz and, basically just looking for someone to light up. I'm glad he got his mojo back last week. Hopefully he can keep continue this performance tomorrow night. 

 

I can't imagine the Texans D is excited to face Big Q.

I just came here to post the same thing... This is part of the reason Q is so special. A lot of players have physical talent, but the mental processing here is on another level.

Haha, that's exactly what I was thinking - he wound up on the turf in the endzone. What a great block!

That's why a guard is worth the #6 overall pick.  

 

Not that Q did it all by himself, it was obviously important to get Glow and Smith in there as well.  But our OL went from crap to one of the best in the NFL in one offseason.

Perfect block by Nelson and perfect pump fake by Brisset to freeze the LB and give Nelson time to clean him up. 10/10 play

No question that Quenton Nelson is the best guard in the entire NFL. It's just a no brainer. A+ athleticism and awareness by Nelson.

Amazing awareness by Big Q!!! But why did Braden Smith not stay in his lane for the stunt going inside? I know it is Calais Campbell but Braden Smith, with the corner of his eye could have seen the LB sneaking towards the LOS faster than Q could and recovered quickly, IMO.

 

That is my take on it.

Not only is he the best OG in the league, he is the best lineman period. The guy could absolutely play LT, he is a better athlete than Castonzo, and a play like this proves it. 

 

I wouldn't play him there because he is the perfect G, but he absolutely could if needed, and probably be an upgrade.

 

Best draft pick since Andrew Luck.

If Nelson keeps up this level of play for his career, he is well on his way to Canton. His name is well known around the league.

The athleticism for a man his size is a big reason why he was considered a generational talent.  Add to that the strength, attitude and desire to improve and you have a guy who is considered a steal as the #6 overall pick.

I hear you, it's a coin flip.  I'm feeling ok about it though.

 

I've been wrong in the past (so often) but despite "playing down to our competition" we've been solid in our divisional games this year, undefeated in fact.  Seems like they get up for these.  Frank will have them ready.

 

Wish it was at LOS, but we've performed well in Houston in the past and I think TY will play, you just put him in a uni and we're already in their head.

 

Both teams are beat up so that's a wash.  Both on a short week so that's a wash.

 

From a colts perspective,  I think this is Jacobys coming out party.  We want national attention for obi-wan jacoby, this is his chance.  They're gonna try to make him beat them thru the air and I know he can.  Unlike last time most of the country is gonna be watching.  Say what you want about Brissett but he doesnt shrink under the big lights.

 

Plus our d has been sneaky solid for awhile now......gonna be close but I like our chances..........

    • Agreed! It only takes one *. To clarify, it was a Police Officer, not a Security Guard.   Personally, I thought the Officer was extremely intelligent handling the situation. His “situational awareness” was top notch, being surrounded by a bunch of reporters, cameras and players looking up to a guy who just distributed Benjamin’s.  It was not in his best interest to arrest OBJ at that moment.    Being a Cop is difficult, everyone has a camera and it only takes a few seconds of a 2 minute video to paint the wrong picture, depending on the motivation.   Looking at the diverse opinions here, it’s easy at least for me to see, that the Police Officer was extremely professional handling this the way he did.  If, this had of been a female Cop or two civilians in the work place, I’m certain the conversation would be somewhat different. And it’s very unfortunate that we can’t all find common ground on what is appropriate or inappropriate.     Unfortunately, not everyone likes the Cops, including some that posted in this thread.    @csmopar Just a having fun with you nothing personal.  Apologies        
    • Mmmhmm. I was deathly afraid of the Chargers that year. I was so relived to see the Pats. And my what a shock to say, but we had beaten them 2 times straight and I felt Peyton finally got the monkey off his back. Plus that was first time we were getting the Patriots at home in a while. 
    • Reader, Armistead, or Byron Jones might make sense.  Getting two of them could be a coup for our defense.  Them wanting to play here is the concern though. 
    • Nice discussions everyone. I for one am not going to get riled up one way or the other. After watching the UCLA and Oregon State tape for Gordon, I found several questionable throws that defenders dropped INTs on that I felt would have been a death sentence in the NFL but then he also threw 9 TDs and did very well vs zone coverage.  Some say he can be coached out of playing hero ball or throwing bad ones into traffic, I am leery about it. One can say the same about selective tape for Jordan Love as well. The guys in charge, I am sure they watch more than 1 game tape or just highlight reels, or just get enamored with 1 year numbers, I will be happy with whatever they decide. I like Gordon as well but I like Love a little more, for the record. Both will have to be coached out of certain tendencies, IMO.   Hey, the first pick in the 1998 draft threw 28 INTs, and thankfully Jameis Winston broke that with 30 INTs this year.   The 6th pick in the 2019 draft (Daniel Jones) was a turnover machine as well. So, even the highest rated QB, who likely will be going to an inferior team will feel the pressure and will make mistakes. Guys like Mahomes, they do not come around often, but you don't want to miss out on someone that has close to his upside either. No matter who we draft at QB, we anticipate him sitting for a year to work out his flaws. Even Mahomes had to sit out a year. The Chiefs had the luxury, we have the same as well, IMO.    All I do not care for is a WR at No.13 because that will not give us good bang for the draft position in a deep WR class, and I elaborated my case in another thread.
    • The reason I compare him to Brissett when talking about him is because the similarities with their passing games are striking and it's easy to illustrate a point when people would know exactly what I'm talking about with Hurts' game when I say he has trouble going through progressions and gets stuck on primary read and drops his eyes sometimes too soon and leaves the pocket to run. His weaknesses in the passing game mirror those of Brissett pretty closely and people would know what I mean because they've seen it for two seasons now with Brissett.    IMO he's not good enough of a passer/processor of the game to be a traditional pocket passer in the league and when he leaves the pocket he's doing it to run rather than to make plays with the pass. His athleticism is much better than Brissett's though and IMO this is the way he should be used - in a Lamar Jackson type of offense - where the offense is built around the QB's ability and threat to run the ball. The problem is - I don't think he's nearly as athletic and elusive as Lamar and he takes some brutal hits regularly on his runs. IMO whoever drafts him needs to build their whole offense around his running and hope to god he doesn't get injured.   I'm just not willing to make that bet.
