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..........

    • Because he is a terrible QB Doug.  That simple.  Luck actually did play game manager in a lot of those 10 wins last year.   Game manager is more about game plan than a QBs ability.  Reich insisted on more game manager role than last year and would have had it IMO.  How much better do you think the already prodigious Colts running game would be with Luck than JB?     When Luck needed to throw, he threw.  WHen he didn't he managed.  Garrapolo did that this year.  Prodigious passing numbers v. NO when they needed it and Arizona.
    • That's fine.  You should post that info in one of the JB threads when folks are discussing the reason why we were 2 and 7 down the stretch.  Most think that it was JBs fault, and use low passing stats to prove it.
    • So Doug how do you account for SFs crap season last year?   Now you shouldn't have to think to hard here.
    • Were talking about the 49ers and the Colts only, right?  And how Luck's retirement relative to that is or isn't relevant.   Relative to the QB, SF has made the SB with a Qb that has played like a game manager.  He may have the talent to be more than that, but the talent he could have used but didn't use isn't really relevant.  Did SF have to give a second to get the level of QB play they've gotten?    The Colts have never been built to win with a game manager.  We have been built to support a performance by an elite QB.  I don't see how Luck's retirement is relevant to the discussion of rosters, unless you say that Luck's retirement exposed the roster and our strategy.    We either had a good 52 roster or a bad 52 roster whether Luck was here or not.  That's just the way I was looking at it. That's reality, the part about assuming what we could have had was the alternative reality.
    • And Doug go back and look at Luck's game log from last year.  Starting with the 1st game of the 10 out of 11 streak, Luck only threw for 300 yds. twice and had 2 games under 200.     Before last year's 10 out of 11 I agree, we needed hero ball from Luck.  Not last year.   In the playoff win v Houston.  Luck threw for only 222.
