Leonard and Walker the past two years


Recommended Posts

Cracks me up how Walker gets underappreciated around here. Of course, when the Colts select more LB's than any other position in the draft, they should stand out.

I really like Walker.  He and Leonard make a really good duo.

 

I would bet next year that the Colts make a business decision and let him go in free agency.  Everyone can't get to a 2nd contract and I just got a hunch AW is the odd man out.

Do you think that is because of his play, or rather the development of the younger players?

Both.  I know they love Okereke and I think they like Speed too. Plus they gotta pay Leonard, Kelly, TY?, and Nelson In the not too distant future.

I agree, a team can't pay everyone.  But it would be a shame to let Walker.... wait for it.... walk.  He is as much a reason for the Colts LB corp being a top unit as Leonard is, IMO.  Leonard is great but I don't think he would be nearly as effective without Walker next to him.

 

I was surprised but in 2019 Walker had the 2nd most defensive snaps behind Leonard among Lbers and 3rd most of the team (Ya Sin had the most defensive snaps)  

 

If I were running the team, I'd try to keep Leonard and Walker together and just let the SAM spot rotate.

    • And if you don't want to include UM and name just players from South Florida or Miami attending Non UM schools, I will have a field day with this discussion. Don't do it to your self. I'll save you now.
    • You are not equipped to hold this conversation. Bringing up a small moment of "dirty laundry" of a program doesn't discredit anything that you cant findout, or know. which Im sure you know very well that South Florida is the mecca of football talent. Why would any sound/knowledgeable student/fan of the game of football, ever bring up PENN State (scandal) to disparage  or take away the impact, records, of "The Great" Joe Paterno? (Just like with Jeff Simmons, some slick fan wants to air out someones dirty laundry.)   Every program recruits heavily out of south florida. including Bama, Clemson, LSU, Mich, Oregon, etc. Dont be a hater now.
    • I hope not, you beating them would go a long way in helping us, even though it wouldn't be a conference or divisional loss but if they pick up 1 or 2 of those in addition to an "L" to you, we may run them down for the AFC South title as long as we take care of our business.
    • You didn’t know it was going to be a snooze fest when the schedule was made, I think around May.   Sometimes it just turns out that way and all the NFL can do is point to the TV ratings.   Ultimately, they are important for everyone. 
    • And you got beat by Florida International and Louisiana Tech last year......    But, I mean, The U does have the highest paid players. From the Pell Grant fraud, to Shapiro handing out cash and cars, I would hope they put more in the NFL than most teams. Add on the hidden drug test to keep players eligible...    Not sure why Miami's history of NFL draft picks is relevant in general, or has any bearing on why you're football takes are any better than anyone else?
