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.

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

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’m pretty sure hooker is going to miss a lot of time due to this injury 

Just depends on the extent of the injury. I haven't seen anything about a torn achilles, so hopefully it's something more mild.

Odum is more of a SS

Just based on hookers behavior on the side line he wasn’t  acting like it was a mild injury

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

    • You're discounting Mike Petersen, who left for a big contract....Marcus Washington, who was a darn near pro-bowler with the Redskins...David Macklin was a decent zone corner....   Burlsworth was killed before pre season, but was thought of as a steal (but we won't count him.   Outside of round 3. McKinney was the first pick of the 4th round....the third day of the draft and was traded up to get.  He started immediately and left for a big contract via FA.  Ryan Ziem was a 4th rounder who has played as well as Smith, our second rounder and I believe earned two new contracts.   To me, you list shows that Polian had about 9 good players out of 12 picks.   Got a great G and RT in round 4....which is where you draft Gs and RTs.
    • Sweat was not an option for the Colts.  Not almost every other team in the NFL.   He had a heart condition.  That’s why a top-10 pick fell to pick 26.   Typically the owner and team doctor decides on guys like that, not the general manager.   Almost every team bypassed Sweat.  Because he wasn’t on the boards for most every team.   
    • Passing on Sweat made little sense...and I don't think Ballard gets a pass. Could you imagine if he had picked Sweat...people here wouldn't shut up about how great he was for picking Sweat.   But he didn't pick Sweat. IF Sweat was off the board because of some misleading health info...then Ballard had bad info. Also...Ballard drafted Hooker at #13 (missed the Combine and had surgeries for a torn labrum in his hip and a sports hernia); Turay (missed half of his games in his sophomore and junior seasons); and Blackmon (was recovering from an ACL tear in December). Ballard has not shown himself to be averse to taking health risks in the draft...even as early Day 1 or Day 2...so I am not buying that.    And IF Sweat was down their board...then it was poor evaluation.
