Indy Star - Kravits,- SB contenders and early line is Pats Eagles

Top AFC choices

1. New England Patriots. Sorry if I just made you do a spit-take with your Cheerios. But it's hard to bet against a team that went 14-2 last season with a young defense that wasn't quite ready to take the next big step. Give this group another year of maturation, and they're going to be beasts.

This has nothing to do with the questionable additions of defensive lineman Albert Haynesworth and wide receiver Chad Ochocinco; it has everything to do with the amazing way coach Bill Belichick has revamped his team on the run in recent years -- a better job, we should mention, than the Colts

Very few QBs are good at throwing under pressure. Last year when Peyton had his string of INTs, he was getting pressured like crazy and the O-line was playing brutally.

Superman,

i AM GLAD YOIU Sid that, I hear so often how (insert top QB name here) can't throw under pressure, well DUH why do you think that is such a key to every teams game plan no matter who they are facing.

The only time I've seen Brady fail under pressure is when the Oline gets manhandled by a Dline and no one is open ta boot. Go figure:)

As it's already been pointed out, if you get pressure on any QB, you disrupt everything. The notion that Brady can't throw under pressure is also pretty difficult to support. He's built his reputation on it in lots of ways. Just because his line, more often than not, protects him well, that doesn't mean that when there is pressure he falters.

But if you need more than that, here's a listing of QB ratings from 2010 for blitz situations.

Brady was #2 behind Rodgers. Manning uncharacteristically did not crack the top 10 last year, but I think we're all aware that he had virtually no continuity on his line. Still, if I used your logic, I'd simply say that Manning can't throw with pressure in his face. Which I know is very, very untrue.

With Shaun Ellis it looks like maybe the Pats are going 4-3 all the way.

With not a lot of great LBs and none drafted or got in FA this may indeed be the case.

We shall see:)

That D-Line for the Pats will be number one in rushing yards allowed this year at the very least. And with a young defense behind them that will benefit from another year together AND the leadership of the new vets....Take a look at the Pats schedule, because it may be another 14-2 year, if not better.

Do you think this would this mean you'd see Spikes in the middle and kick Mayo to the weakside ? I'd also be curious to know who'd man the other OLB spot. I think a 4-3 means Cunningham moves up to the line, but who else can play the outside spot? Ninkovich?

Listening to the Felger show they responded to Belichick's press conf where he said when asked about a 4-3..."We're not changing our technique" which would be the two gap, but we "might change alignments" (4-3) depending on game plan/opponent. That tells me the 3-4 and 4-3 as he's done in the past.

BB has said many times he doesn't know what he's got until around week 4..or even later. Because he does build a different team each season.

So I'm retracting the 4-3 only:)

heck Ellis or Haynesworth might not even be on the roster opening day:)

    • IR. PUP. Starts Wk 1.    That's covered it. 
    • Multiple times I have said the length of the deal would be the issue...like probably in four different posts in this thread. But I think there are people who would even be against paying a RB (like Zeke) that much money for 1-2 years...or wouldn't even give up a late pick for him.    I brought up Funchess because signing Zeke would be akin to signing a Funchess each offseason for a few years. From a financial standpoint...that's not unreasonable. The picks are a different discussion...but Zeke is also on a completely different level...and there is going to be an acquisition cost to getting a player like that.    The bit about Mack was meant to be tongue-in-cheek. The rest of my comment isn't meant to be an attack or even a generalization...it's just an observation about what I have seen in many fans the past year (the Mack situation actually predated a lot of this).   There seems to be a theme...that when a talented non-Colts player vet is mentioned as a possibility to acquire (who would have a cost attached)...there are many that are either dismissive or against it...to the point that late round picks are too much to give up. I think that happens more often than people ignoring the acquisition cost and saying "gimme, gimme." (To be fair...I think saying people "routinely" ignore the acquisition cost is as much of an unfair representation or generalization as what I said...just on the opposite spectrum).   I respect your opinion...and we actually agree on many things (including aspects of roster construction)...I just think I must be in the minority when it comes to taking 'big swings' around here.
    • So here we are again, bunches of cap money, hoping our draft picks are as good as last year, but sweating our QB issue.     How many draft picks are we gonna horde?   How much cap space are we gonna bank?   I realize this deal with Zeke might be just a rumor and forum fodder, but if we have a chance to bring him in, I say yes.  As I, and many other members have said many times, we have a QB that can win a super bowl, but so far we have wasted the opportunity because we lack that 1 player that completes the puzzle.     Andrew has suffered more pain playing on our team then any other Colt's player that I can recall,  I say again, it's time to loosen the purse strings and sign some proven talent to give him a fighting chance.
    • I don't look for him to do much at DT. He played really limited snaps on the interior, really only when they game was far out of hand. Much like here in Indy, there were much better guys on that interior at Ohio State. Tyquan didn't get many "meaningful" snaps inside. Even now he's going to get limited snaps inside because Autry, Hunt, and Ward as just better interior players. I still think he would be a good, cheap replacement, for Sheard, if they got him back down in the 260's. He's good against the run and may get a handful of sacks a year against average RT's. I still scratch my head on why they insist on doing what they are doing with him now.     Yea that's not the story. Him and J Bosa were the starting DE's until they left. Hubbard eventually took over for Bosa when he left and Chase was still sitting behind Tyquan, Nick, and Sam. Chase will be a stud though and I have no doubts he'll be a top-10 pick next year barring injury. 6-5 265 with stupid athleticism, and is equally as good against the run as he is rushing the passer.   Maybe they were thinking Tyquan could turn into a Michael Bennett-type, who can bounce inside and outside on the fly, but I just don't see him being that kind of guy. He wasn't overly athletic at 260'ish, so he's definitely going be hindered with another 10-15-20lbs.
    • Cards lost 5-3 in a rain out called after the top of the 8th. Cubs back in 1st place after tonight. NL Central standings heading into August 22nd are:   Cubs 68-58 Cards 67-58 (.5 back) Brewers 65-62 (3.5 back)   Here's a question to Cards fans, @Jay Kirk , @Barry Sears, and @Myles, what do you guys think about important games being called after the bottom of the 5th of games? This was called in the bottom of the 8th. In the playoffs it is different, if a game is called because of weather, the 2 teams resume the next day where it left off. Having said that the regular season is different, thoughts?
