Nickname for Defense


Recommended Posts

I expect our D to be ranked at or near the top when stats are accumulated after week 3.

I know it's still early in season and rankings will may or probably change. So before they do giving our unit a nickname would be nice.

Steel Curtain, Legion of Doom, Purple People Eaters, Sack Pack, No Name Defense, etc.... 

 

I dont really have any good names as potential candidates...."Eberfus we Trust" not a good name. 

"Cover Blue" na, not good.

"Ballard's Batallion " no.

 

I'm  stumped. But I'm sure we have some inventive minds here that will come up with a knockout name.

And maybe we can send the best name to Clarissa Thompson or that little cutie on NFL Good Morning(or whatever the show's name is) and the may actually do a piece on the colts. Probably  not, lol.

I asked the Washington Football Team and they suggested "Indianapolis Defensive Unit".

How about "Too early for a nickname" defense?

Literally thinking the exact same thing.

Question: Did Blackmon play. Never heard his name or spot him om the field.

He started.  

 

Of the Safeties

Willis - 57 snaps/89% of available

Blackmon - 41/64%

Tavon Wilson - 23/36% 

Odom - 7/11%

 

Of the CBs

Carrie - 54/84%

Moore - 53/83%

Rhodes - 53/83%

Rodgers - 11/17%

Tremon Smit - 7/11%

 

Tavon looked very good. IMO, and outplayed Blackmon at least from a stats perspective.

Tavon had a PD, 4 solo Ts, and 2 TFLs.

Blackmon, in more snaps had one solo T.

 

Could have just been opportunity, but at minimum, Wilson embraced the opportunity presented him.

I love Blackmon as a long term prospect, but folks got a little over hyped over last game. Give him time though.

I love the enthusiasm, don't want to dampen it.  I really need to see them play against a quality offense or two or three before we start anointing them, nicknames are typically earned and become obvious, let's see what it looks like after game 8.  -Go Colts!

Sorry.....

 

But we're three weeks into the weirdest, strangest season in NFL history.

 

We've played 3 teams and none of them are very good.

 

Our defense has looked very good in two of the games,   hugely disappointing in the other.

 

This defense has done NOTHING to deserve a nickname.

 

Come on......        :facepalm:

Lol, I'm not really enthused about our Defense. Like I said,  for fun while they are ranked high it be fun to give them a nickname BEFORE they start playing the better offenses and get exposed.

 

And personally I don't think there has been really truly great defenses last few years. Sure some will play well for a stretch but usually sooner than later teams will put up good numbers against them.

I like Blue Steel.

Just not yet.   

We solidify “Blue Steal” vs Pittsburgh this year on our way to the Chip. Buckner will be our Mean Joe Greene.  Leonard is our Lambert. Okereke may be Ham.  Hope this dream becomes a reality.

Blue Charmin?

:Nuke:

Everyone's already forgetting we made Minshew look like a surgeon. We've played 3 bottom ten OLs, and today one without two starting tackles, and 3 starting WRs. NYJ's offense is ranked 32nd, and MN's is 30th. And we play a bad O next week (Chicago is 23rd) too... lol. Jax is 22nd.

 

When our D plays well vs a decent team, I'll start thinking about nicknames. The Browns and Ravens are the first top 20 offenses we'll play this year.

Maybe they're ranked that low because they played us? xD

    • Darius Leonard didn't sign his contract until July 23d. It's alright, folks. With the new CBA there is nothing that can really happen. Sooner or later the contract will get signed. 
    • People here don’t complain about the process, because people here don’t know the process.   Almost no one here does.    People here complain about the outcome, especially if it disagrees with their opinion.     So, for example, people here hated LaRaven Clark.   A few seasons back, Clarke had to play a fair amount for the Colts in the first month.   PFF gave him a passing grade, I think in the 60’s after the first quarter.  People here went nuts.   The team was struggling and Clarke was the designated person to blame.   By the end of the season, Clarke’s grade was lower, but that didn’t matter.  Once people here decide something is bad, it’s incredibly hard to change hearts and minds.    When Chip Kelly was the Eagles coach for two years, he HATED pff.   When he got fired, he accepted an invitation to visit and see what they do.   Kelly was so impressed that he became an investor.  Cris Collinsworth too.    It’s my understanding each game, is graded three different times by three different people and none of them knows what the others have done.     They’re not perfect.   I think their NFL grading is better than some of their college work.  But overall, I think they’re helpful.  Very helpful. 
    • So I know most expect mack to be gone what if he still decides to come back  even after this year ? I feel like a lot keep discrediting how good he was before Jt lol his vision is still better I’d assume between the two 
    • You're blessed to still have both comics and albums.  My brother got rid of the comics as they had gone moldy from basement floods my parents would have.   As for the albums, I used to DJ in the late 70's, early 80's, then again in the 90's (mostly all mobile stuff), but I lost my natural hearing and gave all my records and equipment away.  I wish I had it all back now.  Between my older brother and I we had been collecting music since the 60's. I know how hard it is to part with it.  Don't ever let it go, bro!  Haha.
    • I heard he’s holding out because the forum wanted someone else when he was drafted.     just for the record the above is said with heavy sarcasm.
