Quenton Nelson blown up by Jeffrey Simmons on this play

Recommended Posts

This one is obviously making its rounds among Titans' fans, obviously:

 

 

Did this happen often enough in the Colts game vs the Titans? I haven't watched the All 22, so if anyone can give their thoughts, it would be appreciated.

Yeah, like others have said, Nelson’s gonna go back and forth with these really good D linemen. And Simmons has looked really good.

I'm sure Nelson got the better of him on the majority of plays. Simmons to me still needs to become much more versatile to be in Nelson's league. He is a VERY strong DT who can push OL back and create pocket collapse. However, he lacks technique and pure speed to blow by guys like Nelson and other quality OGs on a consistent basis.

even the best of them get made to look bad sometimes, especially against other really good players...remember Jonathan Ogden? Freeney abused him a lot and Ogden's in the Hall of Fame. 

 

 Yes i remember one game when Ogden played with a bad leg.
Nelson got pancacked that is for sure.

Should’ve took Darnold. 

 

I know this forum was high on Jeffrey Simmons, so I thought they'd get a kick out of it. I just hate that him along with Jurell Casey will fortify that D-line for them. 

 

Time to get some game wreckers for ourselves on the D-line in the draft.

And yet it had no impact on the play.  Guy mostly remained occupied by Nelson, but then when he did break free, Brissett had already rolled right and threw the ball.  Ergo, irrelevant play.

Bitty everybody ON THIS FORUM brought up Simmons off the field crap remember? ESPN unprofessionally dropped a video when the young Simmons was drafted. Airing out Simmons dirty laundry on national TV. Remember?

 

Everyone said oh no, we don't want any part of XYZ on my team. Lol

The way Nelson sets up in Pass Pro is different than most, and it’s only because he’s so powerful and has amazing technique. However, for a split second before he gets set, he’s vulnerable. If anything, this is a positive for Simmons, as it shows how quick he was to explode off the snap and immediately engage, rather than Q just getting overpowered. It’ll happen from time to time though. When Q gets set, he’s the best in the league and the only one who does what he does. If the defender gets there first, and they are as powerful as Simmons, it’s going to happen.

No, it didn't happen often and you can see that Kelly's right foot gets behind Q's left foot so he could not step back.

 

Still took him 3 seconds to get around Q.

Be prepared to be depressed, I already I am and expect JB to be the QB again at least for next year. Here is something to cheer you up:

 

Since in Indianapolis (1984, 84-2019 36 seasons)

12 Divisional Round appearances - 1987, 1995, 1999, 2003, 2004, 2005, 2006, 2007, 2009, 2013, 2014, 2018

 

5 AFC Title Game appearances - 1995, 2003, 2006, 2009, 2014

 

2 SB appearances - 2006, 2009

 

1 SB Championship - 2006 (that is what makes us an elite franchise factoring in all the other great wins).

 

-Hey man when you get down or depressed, just go to youtube and watch all the great wins we have had over the last 33 years :thmup:. It started with Dickerson in 1987, then we had the likes of Harbaugh, Peyton, and Luck. We have been lucky to witness a bunch of great times. We never cheated either like the Pats have to get our success.

Not sure what this has to do with anything.  But I also want to point out, that I was one that wanted Simmons and said so in multiple threads (I think I even had the Colts picking him in the 2nd round on the draft contest).  So you're "everybody" and "Everyone" comments do not apply.

If you look closely, #99 (their RE), helps with a rush right at Q as well. 

 

...They had to double team an Offensive Lineman.... and still didn't get through in time.

I think Ballard takes a QB in round 2 but that is just a guess. I think we go DT with 1st pick. We need a WR too that is just a difference maker, we have none when TY is out.

Nelson's officially a bust! We should have drafted Bradley Chubb - who according to Brad Wells - is Bruce Smith.

As ever your sensationlism of the hindsight is wonderfully amusing. 
 

I think the vast majority of concern pre draft was about his knee injury not his personality.

Chubb went 5th so we couldn't draft him, I get your sarcasm though. In that draft I wanted Barkley (he went 2nd) but Nelson was my 2nd choice, Chubb was my 3rd choice. All 3 players are legit IMO. 

 

Then again we could've took Sam 'the seeing ghosts' Darnold at #3 had we not traded down will ferrell lol GIF, overall I am happy with Nelson. Our O.Line is the best part of our team.

Being honest I was in favour of a trade down at the time. Nelson has proven then idea wrong so far and I couldn’t be happier.

From comments CB said before the draft, I did not think they would take Nelson (he talked about starting quality guards being available in the 2nd and 3rd round).  But man, am I glad he did.

Oh I agree. I felt like Luck either needed the next Barry Sanders or a lineman that could protect him on a consistent basis. To me Nelson looked like the best O.Lineman I have seen coming out since Larry Allen. I loved the pick. Chubb looked good but not great to me, JMO. Had Nelson been gone I would've went Chubb though. I knew Barkley would be gone.

Btw, here is another truth which wasn't popular, that kid Lamar Jackson... He will be problems for years to come. Oh and that same kind of dual threat QB which wasn't so popular with kids such as Bridgewater, now we see Mahomes and Lamar Jackson, those will be the $150 million dollar QBs that every team will want. Don't hate the messenger/player...hate the game.

Once we get a great DT we will have a wrecking crew on the DL as well with Turay coming back, Banogu developing, Houston's leadership, and Sheard's ability to set the edge. 

 

Imagine these DEs and LBs getting more freed up when adding a play like a Javon Kinlaw or Marvin Wilson in the draft.

It wasnt even that good of a play by Simmons

 

He didn't really get close to Brissett.  Q got knocked over, but Brissett still had a good amount of time to throw.

He did get a starting quality OG in Round 2.... it just so happened that Braden Smith got moved to RT, where he has done (for the most part) very well.  I, personally, would still love to see us get a more natural RT and move Braden back to RG (as I think Glowinski is currently the weakest link on the OL).

 

Let's keep in mind, our OL was one of the worst in the league, and after that draft our OL is now regarded as one of the better ones in the league.  And I think it's widely accepted that Q is one of the best (if not the best) OG in the NFL.

I agree, I'm not saying he was wrong.  I'm just saying I drew the wrong conclusion based on that statement from CB.

I would love that. My dream scenario is that we land DT Derrick Brown or Javon Kinlaw round 1, get QB Jordan Love early round 2, and then land WR Tyler Johnson with the other 2nd round pick.

Wow, you are as bad as some other posters about chaging the subject.  But I will play, Mahomes and Jackson are not similar QBs at all.  Jackson is having a great year no doubt, it's yet to be determined if he will causes problems for years to come.

    • I kind of feel like another 10M contract for Funchess cannot be justified. He already got that and he missed the whole year. I doubt he will command that much again.    I personally probably would let Walker go if he demands that much money. I don't think he's as irreplaceable as to give him 8 a year and for 5 years... that's a ton.    I like the free agency signings and I like the draft. I think it's reasonable price to move up and something I can see Ballard doing if he loves Herbert. I haven't watched Peart, I will have to take a look at him. IMO at some point during this draft we will have to pick a player that could in the future challenge for LT spot even if AC returns.
    • He is returning to Clemson for his senior season, I was looking forward to seeing him in the NFL next year.  I'm surprised he made that decision, considering the usually short career for RBs in the NFL.  However, it's his choice and I hope it turns out to be a good choice.
    • If that trade is possible, I’d offer the Bengals the rights to Andrew Luck, JB, our 2nd pick in the 2nd rd this year and a 2nd rd next year. I’d also offer them a dinner for 4, once a month at Ruth Chris steak house for a year lol. I mean if that wouldn’t seal the deal idk lol. 
    • It is more Randall Cunningham arm like, IMO, but yes, he has to see them and hit them. But that is true of every QB-WR. He does lead them to the right shoulders in short throws, if you look closely at them. He uses every bit of his physical talents to the max. and even on that drop by Darwin Thompson, the RB who did not turn around for a hot read throw that hit him in his back, the QB read was right, the throw was right, but his RB was not on the same page because he was a rookie. Those are things I am curious to see get better with time with Mahomes as QB as he works with rookies too.    It is like the long ball in baseball, everyone gets enamored with them but the base hits move the sticks, like first downs in football. Because Mahomes hits the long balls, they overshadow a lot of things he does underneath. For a 2nd year guy to build chemistry with Kelce who is thrown to as he comes out of the break, even that Tyreek Hill drop that he came out of the break, and same with Sammy Watkins for a crucial first down late in the game, he is still learning the position and I see improvement from Year 1 to Year 2 where he leads them right, IMO. So, no, the WRs are not wide open every single time till he manufactures time by moving back or moving sideways. It is like 10 yards back or 5 yards lateral, before a 30 yard throw for a 20 yard completion, that is his style, LOL. It is an adjustment for traditionalists, IMO, but once you adjust, it is enjoyable. At least it is to me.   Nothing against Tom Moore, but Andy Reid is a tad more creative play caller than Tom Moore was. Tom Moore's offense was predicated on "we will line up the same way and run different routes out of the same formations based on how the pass catchers read the defense, which does require a lot of work between the QB and pass catchers". Andy Reid has far more motion incorporated in the back, and that is why they draft for speed they use for reverses far more than any of the playoff teams this year. In other words, Andy Reid's offense to me seems to be more motion schemes and less on perfection of execution while Tom Moore's offense was more reliant on perfection of execution, and when it was on, it was a well oiled machine and a thing of beauty to watch when Peyton was running it well. But it did not get there overnight, it took a few years.
    • What a horrible first round pick. DE is no where near our biggest need, and not only that, but this would be a huge reach. Matos is very raw and could easily be had in the mid 2nd round.    Indy needs to go DT, WR, or QB round 1. Possibly LT if Costanzo were to retire.
