SI.com Names Colts Slot Cornerback Kenny Moore as the Team’s ‘Most Underrated Player’

Recommended Posts

They should add “for people who don’t follow the Colts”.

 

I think everyone here knows how valuable he is.

That's no joke, he's the highest paid nickle cornerback in the league or else he was when he got paid

I guess SI is a little out of touch.

I think they are coming from the NFL fans perspective, not just Colts fans.  

Most fans probably couldn't name Kenny Moore when naming Colts players.   

Rivers

Nelson

Leonard

Mack

Hilton

Doyle

That may be it for most NFL fans (not including the diehard fans).  

 

It's pretty cool that we have him locked up for the next 4 years.

Great example of why patience is so important with young DBs who have potential to play in this league.  I remember many wth Kenny Moore moments his first year here.  Incredible that we’re now talking about him as elite, and deservedly so.

Well said. This is true for most first year players. Give them a pass as they adjust (or can’t) to NFL level play.

It was more along the lines they couldn’t keep him on their roster due to the stacked group already in place: Gillmore, Butler, Rowe, Jones and Bademosi. The best Moore could’ve done back then was special teams.

Here's an interesting take on the Pats' cornerback situation in 2019 by a Pats homer.

He basically says Belichick's a genius for not paying slot corners big bucks.

I wouldn't use "genius" as the word, but NB isn't a position you want to pay a ton on D. Not saying go cheap, but it's not a position you typically want to set the market on. Depending on your scheme it could be more, or less important. We play a ton of 4-2-5 so it's a bit more important to us, but frankly teams are using more and DBs across the board these days anyway.

 

Purely my opinion, but... In terms of pay, my top 5 positions to pay on D are 

1. Edge

2A. CB1 (cover corner)

2B. DT (3T)

4A. Will

4B. FS

    • I guess that explains some things.  And I don't mean that as an insult, I just didn't know that about you.  I'm realizing I might have been looking at some of your previous posts over the years in the wrong light.  No judgement.  Sorry if I ever came across as harsh (or a straight-up donkey) in the past.  I just didn't know you as well as I thought I did.    I'll try to be more understanding going forward, even when we disagree about something.   (maybe @coltsfeva feels the same, I don't know.  If I'm not mistaken, there's been some back-and-forth between you two in the past...  I might be thinking of a different member, if so: apologies.  )   I was speaking kinda specifically about Ballard vs Dodds, ie: General Manager vs Assistant General Manager.  If I had a choice, I would choose Assistant General Manager (and not Assistant TO the General Manager for all you Office fans) ev-er-y time.  Being the General Manager is just not my gig.     And hopefully you'll be more understanding going forward of people in Ballards' position where dealing with people is basically the whole premise of their job.  If they didn't draft the guy you wanted or sign the FA you wanted, or even achieve the goals you wanted record-wise, please realize how much else they had to deal with on an inter-personal level that you don't have to deal with on a day-to-day basis.  Because I've been there, and it's beyond stressful trying to get 10-20 people to do their job, much less trying to get 50-100 people to their job better than the the other 50-100 on the other sideline...  
    • Why are you only going by last season?? Of course he was bad last season but he is now 47 years old. In 2006 with us he made 89.3% of his FG's and 100% of his extra points. He was also 5-5 in the playoffs at Baltimore and we won the SB. I am taking that kicker over anyone. Using last season as a gauge makes no sense. Vinny also had a few years in NE where he made over 90% of his FG's and 100% of his extra points. Using last year is nonsense.
    • I make perfect sense, he isnt top 10 by any means he is 25th best, I didnt make the list referenced someone who among many who had Tucker first as an example (Didnt think it was that hard to decipher sorry if anyone else didnt get it).   Sorry but any kicker in modern NFL who goes 78.6 % on PAT and 68% on Fg's during an entire season isnt kicking for anyone or animal i care about, to say otherwise is kinda insane i.m.o. and can't say ignore it but it occurred, if Tucker ever falls off like that I'd say the same BUT if and buts are facts, just saying.
    • I've never had an actual job under a real boss in my life tbh. I have technically managed pokemon teams where we travel across the U.S. and play competitively for prizes, college scholarships, and other stuff though. Right now, I manage blackjack teams where I teach basic strategy and card counting and we go into casinos to win money sometimes (just a small operation, but I have to be sure everyone is good enough since it's a business). We aren't going to the casino right now because of the coronavirus.   Not technically the boss of a big company, but I was responsible for teams and still am winning money. I have two friends that play on fanduel with me, and we build lineups for baseball, basketball, and football. We've transitioned into other sports as well like golf, mma, and nascar. An interesting example here is I won $300 in a Colorado tournament for the NFL Draft on fanduel. We used a salary cap to predict who would go at each position and we had to get one of the first 4 players at each positions to qualify for points. You get 6, 3, 2 and then 1 for 1-4 respectively. You also got to pick a team you thought would trade the most. I picked the 49ers because they were cheap and I heard rumors they would trade down and also trade some players.   I didn't even let my mom cook for me as a kid as soon as I figured out I could make my meals more to my liking. Very picky eater, and she didn't cook for me exactly how I wanted. That helped me be more independent as an adult though (or it started it), so I guess it's a good thing in the end.   I honestly can't work with people very well, and I'm bipolar, so the two don't mix. That's why I do things where it's easy to get people to listen to me and I enjoy that don't feel like work.
    • Does that include managing a large team of people you're responsible for?  Because if it does, I really respect you for that.     I've accepted jobs/promotions before where I was the #1 guy managing large groups of people, and I absolutely hated it.  It's just too much stress.  Constant meetings.  Never-ending paperwork.  Endless hours.  Phone calls at every hour of every day about every little thing from every employee you're in charge of...   I guess I'm not a Peyton Manning.  I'm more of a role-player.  I'm the workhorse-do-everything-RB like Edge that makes Peytons' job easier without having to deal with the stress/demands of being Peyton Manning.
