Blackmon is a DUDE!! :strong: He just looks and feels better on the field... like even if he didn’t have a clue what’s going on, he’s still tons be around the back and make a play 

Hes got more fire than Hooker and hes not scared of contact. And he can match up man to man.

Hooker has an Achilles injury according to reports.

 

But Blackmon played very well. I was kind of shocked when I first saw him on the field, I thought he would need a bit more time to get ready to play... Oh well, that one comes in the best possible moment. Let's hope he can keep it up in case Hookers injury keeps him out for a while.

I first noticed him on the play when someone tried to hurdle him. I was like "WAS THAT 32!?" Really excited for him and hopefully he's not back too soon.

I was surprised too. He has already surpassed Odum after one limited practice. Unless Odum is a pure SS now.

Trade Hooker for a bag a peanuts and I’ll be happy! Blackmon showed to have a tendency to be around a play unlike Maleak! The secondary for once looked like they can keep a wr in front of them! Im not sure if the Vikes are that bad or Whatever, but the Colts secondary looked great!

I think a little of both.  The secondary clearly looked motivated and they did adjust by being a bit more aggressive.  However the Vikings have no real WRs outside of one guy.  Also this is why the Redskins didn’t commit to Cousins.  He will look really good at times but he has too many games like this where he’s just flat awful.

I feel sorry for @NFLfan, @VikingsFanInChennai and others because he is not the answer

Thanks. He sure is not.

Exactly. He is not that good. He compiles a lot of his stats in the fourth quarter (like last week). But he does not do what it takes to win. 

 

We should not have traded Diggs. He and Thielen complemented each other well. I read that Diggs had 8 catches for 153 and 1 TD today.

To lazy to look it up, but is this the kid we drafted with a torn ACL? How did he recover so quickly?

I'm happy he did, but I remember the tv heads saying he'll need to redshirt this year because of the injury...

 

You’re correct. He had a surprisingly quick recovery during the summer. In fact he was able to return to practice back in August. He was ruled out for week 1, but here we are today.

Agree.  It is a great win for the Colts. However, they have no one outside of Thielen and I think he is over rated and we will see how good he is with Diggs gone. That being saif. Great D performance

    • I think we see plenty of 3 Safety's on the field at the same time and both Cross and Rodney Mc have very nice seasons. I worry a bit about the 4th S spot (Thomas could fill it as a S/CB), dont trust Watts to play D just ST. Dabo so raw likely a year away. Weatherford may be in play in emergencies though more a LB fit at this level.
    • With Willis showing in his first preseason game I am sure he might be more depressed now.      
    • Think this shows that French is playing so well at center he has backup locked down so Fries C/G option is now just guard and ahead of Spriggs. At least that's the take I'm getting.
    • I did before and enjoyed it.  I commented on it.  I talked about Wentz mechanics mostly, and that they just stunk aside from when he squared up properly to throw down the middle of the field.   What I noticed on that first play was that Doyle did not release early enough.  Seemed to be free but kept his hands on the defender and stayed covered while Wentz was pumping.  Yes, Wentz fades back for no apparent reason, but ended up throwing the ball right where Doyle should have been if he released when he should of.  And, number 41 for Jax made a good play by closing on the passing lane pretty quickly taking any sort of play away if Wentz didn't throw the ball when he did.   I thought the ball to Pittman down the middle was a bad throw.  I thought the back side play to TY wasn't bad. And JT made a good observation about Dulin slowing down mid route on that deep ball.      Wentz got criticized for moving too early and not staying put in the pocket.  Well, he's a "mobile" QB and not one of those pocket statues.  He extends plays, and those guys break from the pocket passing position pretty early.  I mean, if you want a pocket passer that stays put and releases right before the defender hits him, then go get Brady, PM, or Rivers....or Ryan,....or Kurt Warner.  Wentz ain't that guy, and the NFL is moving away from that guy.   I said early in the season that Wentz seemed to play like he thought he was more athletic than he actually is.  Maybe he should try to be a pocket passer that squares up every play and stands tall until the last split second.   I thought that a lot of points were valid, especially about just plain accuracy.  And I don't think Wentz played well.  A QB can't come out of a game with a 6 PFF score without terrible play being a huge part of that score.
