Buckner possible DPOY


Recommended Posts

Highest rated interior player through 4 weeks . Getting mentioned as the front runner for DPOY award . 

That first was nothing for the engine that drives the colts defense . 

Looking to be a great trade for Indy

Keep feasting big boy

Unfortunately unless he makes some game changing splash plays, increases sack numbers or causes turnovers etc, I don’t see him winning it.

 

Thats stuff is usually what wins awards

 

Yes, most voters aren't watching every game of every team.  As Colts fans (I assume many of us on here watch every game), we get to see a lot of plays which Buckner disrupts without getting any ticks on the stat sheet.  

 

DPOY is usually a guy who has (a) a lot of sacks, (b) a lot of tackles, or (c) a lot of interceptions -- or some combination of the 3.  As of right now, Buckner's on pace for 6 sacks, 72 tackles (total) and 4 passes defended.... that's not to say he's not doing an excellent job and playing the role he needs to play to drive this defense... but, outside of the Colts world where we see how valuable he is week in and week out, those numbers are not typically going to gain the attention of the voters.

 

Eric Kendricks (MIN) is on pace for 180 tackles.

 

Za'Darius Smith (GB) and Myles Garrett (CLE) are both on pace for 20 sacks.

 

Pierre Desir (NYJ) and Carlton Davis (TB) are both on pace for 12 INTs. 

 

I know a lot can change in the last 3/4 of the season, but I have a hard time believing Buckner wins the vote if he and the above players mentioned keep the same pace of the first 1/4 up throughout the last 3/4 of the season.

We are just 4 weeks into the season.    And we really haven't played a good offense yet.

 

So, as much as I love Buckner,  let's not carried away with awards or anything else at this point.    Not trying to be a killjoy here,  just saying that the season has barely started.    If Buckner dominates during the heart of our schedule, THEN we will have something to talk about.

No crap.  For the love of all that is holy - I mean seriously - who gives a rat's behind who the front runner is for an award when the season is 1/4 done.

Enough with the back and forth, I just removed all the post. Literally 20 post not talking about the topic, taking personal and condescending shots at each other.

 

You 3 know who you are. Clean it up.

 

Move this conversation back to Buckner please.

I’m so glad we traded for D Buck over drafting Kinlaw. 
 

Having watched 2 niner games, sure Kinlaw can develop into a beast, but I don’t think he’ll ever come close to being on Buckners level

Btw, what do you think about Buckner's chances to win DPOY? I think it is too early to discuss any awards.

Long way to go, his presence is definitely noticeable Colts defense is #1 in yards and #1 in scoring(regardless who we played).

 

If we stay there it will be hard to ignore that come voting time. Im sure his sack numbers will be up by end off year too.

 

They were just showed the Vikings game were he threw #73. They said who is that Reggie White. 

 

Im just saying, thats a pretty nice comparison to have.

    • I would completely disagree with everything you say.  Two years and saying he is who he is after a short lived football life is completely wrong.  Comparing him to players (Winston) who played since they were 5 is a bad comparison.  Look at Mo Allie-Cox as a better example.  He looks a lot better now this year.  Why? Because he has had time to adjust to football versus basketball.   Can the wrestling be coached out of Ya-Sin, no probably not.  You don't have to though.  He is a natural athlete and competitor so he probably wants to learn or he would not be starting.  Some players take time, yes time, which is more than just a two year time stamp.
    • That type of stuff is nearly impossible to coach out of someone. Generally speaking players are who they are in college. QBs who turn the ball over in college, tend to do the same in the pros (Winston). Receivers who drop passes in college tend to drop passes in the NFL (Sammy Coates, Eric Ebron).   It’s been 2 years, he is who he is at this point. You can’t simply coach that out of him. It’s a mentality and part of his game. You see why he grabs too. When he doesn’t he almost always gets beat. He got beat by Brown on that TD play and then started grabbing and putting his hands in the receivers face mask so he wouldn’t get beat.   Also the whole young and needing growth thing goes out the window when you’re a starter in your second year. He’s a pro now and he’ll be treated as such. That’s why he got benched.
    • We awarded Stewart so he is off this list now.  A good 3T and 1T combo for the future.
    • I like a LT in the first if one is available worth the pick.  I cannot stand Clark as our depth personally.  Round 2 and 3 I would hope for a CB and WR/DE. We need another solid CB for depth based on Rhodes might not coming back and Carrie being the next best who also might not be back. Tell should play next year but a year sitting does not help any progression.  WR to replace TY, yes! And DE to replace Houston as well.
