If Leno is an upgrade then I question why the team signed all these other guys that really can’t play. They aren’t any better than Clark. Should have drafted one rather than signing up quantity over quality.
Lets look at Leno a bit more
Villinueva had a PFF Ranking at 74.6
Anthony Cantstandya had a PFF Ranking of 73.4
Leno had a PFF Ranking of 74.6
Leno isnt an ALL PRO..... I get it..... but he isnt far off of other LTs that we were clamoring for
Leno also..... started EVERY GAME for 5 years....... Thats big
Leno is better than Tevi..... if I am Wentz and there is choice between these two, I am standing on the table shouting "LENO!"
As mentioned, Leno would get a "boost" to play better because the line stunts Q is going to hold his own
The Colts need to get thru this coming year at LT.
Leno isnt the long term answer (I dont think) But he is good enough to play LT on this line, for this year.
If we play a team with a dominant RDE, you chip the guy, or have a large number of plays where the the TE blocks.
A good running attack also helps slow down the pass rush
I started out wanting Fisher, and they may work something out for the long run, but Leno seems to be someone that we can plug in and go
With all the research pointing to a 11-12 months on a full recovery, for Fisher, I think the Colts may let him pass
How do you pay the guy for this year, if he isnt playing?
Tough calls..... I hope W.T.H. will not sign Leno.
