Colt's Scouts Take: Wide Receiver Alec Pierce


Recommended Posts

WIDE RECEIVER ALEC PIERCE

 

INDIANAPOLIS – There’s no ‘Nintendo theory’ to Alec Pierce.

The theory, coined by Colts area scout Chad Henry, refers to today’s younger generation that has other distractions (i.e. video games) keeping them away from daily trips outside to throw and catch a little bit of everything.

Pierce though has a very natural athletic look, which makes sense given his family backup (Pierce’s mom and dad were Division 1 athletes and both his brothers played/are playing college basketball.

“You can tell he’s done it, and he’s done it,” Henry says of Pierce’s innate ability to locate and come down with the ball.

“He’s done that playing volleyball. His ball skills are really good that way and his timing, his timing and ability to track the ball, and I think that transfers.”

“He’s really competitive. He’s got really good ball skills. He’s like a basketball player on the outside, (with) competitive balls.”

Chris Ballard saw Pierce firsthand making such a play in Cincinnati’s road victory over Indiana last September.

It was the type of play that a guy like A.J. Green has made, and that’s a player Pierce likes to model his game after.

Another popular name thrown out in comparisons with Pierce (6-3 and 211 pounds) is former Pro Bowler Jordy Nelson (6-3 and 217)

“Jordy Nelson was mentioned (as a comp) a couple of times, but he’s unique in his own was,” Colts Director of Player Personnel Kevin Rogers says. “He’s a vertical guy, go up and get the football. I think he’s probably a little more flexible than Jordy. Jordy was probably a little more polished on the underneath stuff, but we think that Alec will develop in that respect.”

So much of the Colts evaluation on Pierce came back to that background.

From Pierce’s father (Greg, who played football at Northwestern) to his mother (Stephanie, who played volleyball at Northwestern), his older brother (Justin, who played basketball at William & Mary and North Carolina) and his younger brother (Caden, who will be a freshman on the Princeton basketball team this fall), Alec was never going to be one rotting away on the basement couch.

“This guy’s wired to compete,” Henry says. “It doesn’t matter if he’s going out there with a bunch of schoolchildren playing against the best team in the world, he’s going to try to compete, he’s going to try to win all the time. I think that translates well coming into our league.”

Also worked on Gradius ! 

Wow! Contra was just where I learned it, it is used in may more than I would have thought.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Konami_Code

 

Gradius series[edit]

Gradius (NES) – The first use of the code. Pausing the game and entering the code activates all powerups except for Speed Up, Double, and Laser.

Gradius (PC Engine) – Pausing the game and entering the code ↑↑↓↓←→←→III activates full options, missile, and shield.

Life Force (NES) – Enter the code at the title screen for 30 lives. The code does not work in the Famicom version of the game.

Gradius II (Family Computer) – Entering the code at the title screen starts the player with thirty lives.

Gradius II (PC Engine) – Pausing the game and enter the code ↑↑↓↓←→←→III to activate full power. This code works more than once on Easy mode.

Nemesis (Nintendo Switch) – Pausing the game and entering the code will give the player full options.

Gradius III (Super NES) – Normally entering the code while paused activates all powerups, but the player's ship is instantly destroyed upon unpausing. The player must enter the code by substituting the L and R shoulder buttons for the ← and → on the d-pad to apply the power-ups without penalty.

Gradius III (PS2) – Pausing the game and entering ↑↑↓↓←→←→×○ will activate all power-ups and the Laser weapon. Alternately, pressing □ and △ in place of × and ○ will activate the Double weapon with the other power-ups.

Parodius! From Myth to Laughter (GB) – Pausing the game and entering the code activates all powerups except for Speed Up and Double. Entering the code when the Konami Logo appears enables the Sound Test mode.

Parodius! From Myth to Laughter (Super NES) – Resuming the game and entering the code reloads the player upon pausing. However, entering ACPDLZMY↑→ and resuming will fully power up the player. The second code uses the same finger-movements when the Super NES controller is held upside-down.

Gradius Deluxe Pack (Saturn) – Pausing the game and entering the code will give full weapons only on Saturn Easy and Saturn Hard difficulty levels.

Gradius Gaiden (PS1) – Pausing the game and entering the code ↓↓↑↑→→→→○× will result in a power up.

Gradius Galaxies (GBA) – Normally entering the code while paused activates all powerups, but the player is instantly destroyed upon unpausing. However, if the player enters the code and substitutes the A and O buttons for ↑ and ↓, the powerups are applied without penalty. Entering ↓↑↓↑→↓→→DC will result in full powerups, but subtracts one life per use. ↓↓↑↑RLRLAB gives full powerups followed shortly by self-destruction.

Gradius IV Fukkatsu (PS2, PSP) – Pausing the game and entering the code activates all powerups except for Speed Up and Double.

Gradius V (PS2) – Pressing ↑↑↓↓←→←→L1R1 while paused gives full powerups, including the Laser weapon. Using L2 and R2 for the final two buttons gives the Double Shot instead.

Gradius ReBirth (Wii) – Pausing the game and entering this code will give the player's ship four options.

 

Contra series[edit]

Contra (NES) – Entering the code and then Start at the title screen gives the player 30 lives. If the two-player option is picked using the Select button before or after entering the code, both players will have 30 lives. In the Japanese version, the 30 lives code can be used alongside a stage select code exclusive to that version. The codes were removed from the special Contra 4 version.

Super C (NES) – Entering the code(→←↓↑ABStart) before the title screen appears, gives the player 10 lives in the US version of the game while in the Japanese version the code gives 30 lives. If the two-player option is picked using the Select button before or after entering the code, both players will have 10 lives. This is different from the original game which offered 30 lives to a player. The codes were removed from the special Contra 4 version. To access sound mode in Japanese/US version enter the code Hold(AB) and press Start. For stage select in Japanese version at the title screen, press and hold ↓ on the directional pad, while holding it press Start and immediately hold Select. If done correctly the player should see the stage select screen.

Operation C (GB) – Entering the code at the title screen (followed B and A again) will enable the Stage Select mode. Choose the desired stage by pressing Select and press Start to begin. This code can give the player 10 lives in the Japanese version (Stage Select is default).

Contra: Shattered Soldier (PS2) – At the title screen, pressing ↑↑↓↓L1R1L2R2L3R3 on the second controller gives the player 30 lives upon starting the game.

Neo Contra (PS2) – Same as Contra: Shattered Soldier

Contra 4 (DS) – When the game first starts on Stage 1, inputting the Konami Code via the Touch Screen (top of screen twice, bottom of screen twice, left side, right side, left side, right side, B, A, center of screen) before the player lands on the ground will award 30 lives. Entering the code with the normal buttons during play in the Pause menu will power-up whatever weapons the player is currently carrying. The code can only be entered once per stage, as inputting it a second time will kill off the player, taking away a life. This code has no effect on the Easy setting, where all the weapons picked by the player are upgraded by default. The codes were removed from the unlockable emulated bonus versions of NES Contra and NES Super C due to illegal reasons.

Hard Corps Uprising (Xbox 360, PlayStation 3) Before starting the first stage, enter the code when the loading screen is shown (a sound will confirm it) and the usual background music will be replaced with the Jungle theme from the original Contra. Entering the code at the title screen with L3 and R3 as the button presses will unlock a 30 lives powerup for purchase in Rising Mode.

Super Contra (Xbox Live Arcade) Enter the code to receive unlimited lives (the life counter will remain at 4) and the most powerful gun in the game (collecting gun powerups will also not affect the weapon used). The player can not get any achievement while playing with the code.

The Probotector versions of the games also allow use of the code.

 

Castlevania series[edit]

Kid Dracula (Family Computer) – Entering the code at the title screen will display a black screen with the text "There's nothing here!" in Japanese. The official English translation released in 2019 rewords it to "Sorry! nothing this time!"

Castlevania: Bloodlines (Mega Drive/Genesis) – Entering the code at the title screen (a sound will confirm it) enables the selection of the Expert difficulty in the option screen. The code also gives the player the possibility of starting the game with 9 lives if it is entered at the title screen after the music settings in the option screen have been set to BGM 05 and SE 073.

Castlevania Chronicles (PS) – Entering ↑↑↓↓←→←→X○ on the title screen will take the player to a hidden options menu that allows them to adjust the "system time" and turn on-off the transparency of the status bar in Original mode. The system time affects small things in the game, like the hands on the clock tower.

Castlevania: Harmony of Dissonance (GBA) – Entering the code when the Konami logo appears and choose Boss Rush to play as the original Simon Belmont, with the music and animations from the original Castlevania for NES. While significantly harder due to the limited movement of Simon Belmont, the player can do more damage with this character and collect far more hearts to fuel subweapon use against the bosses than the other two characters. Simon is also limited to special weapons from the first game: Holy Water, Knife, Axe, and Cross. (Additionally, the Holy Water weapon gives the "static flame" from the original Castlevania, not the moving flame from when Juste uses it.)

Castlevania: Lords of Shadow (Xbox 360, PlayStation 3) – Entering it at the load screen of a level (with analog sticks) and the player gets a cheat menu at the extras point.

Castlevania: Requiem (PlayStation 4) - Putting in the code will access the bonus mini-game, Peke from Castlevania: Rondo of Blood.

 

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles series[edit]

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Fall of the Foot Clan (GB) – Pausing the game and entering the code will replenish the player's energy. This code will only work once per game.

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles II: The Arcade Game (NES) – Entering one of three different variations of the code at the title screen will give the player access to either nine lives at the start of a game, a stage select/option ability, or both.

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles III: The Manhattan Project (NES) – Entering the code at the title screen with the A and B buttons reversed gives access to a stage select/option mode and is the only way to change the options in the game; otherwise, the player will start on normal difficulty with three spare lives. In the Japanese Famicom version (Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles 2), the game will display a message from Konami saying "Thank You for Purchasing This Game" in Japanese. In order for the code to work properly, the functions of each button must be reversed (↓↓↑↑→←→←AB).

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles IV: Turtles in Time (Super NES) – Entering the code at the title screen on controller 2, followed by pressing start on controller 1, allows the selection of 10 lives in the Options menu.

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Tournament Fighters (Super NES) – Entering the code at the title screen on controller 2 will unlock Speed Level 3 in the Options menu.

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles (PS2, Xbox, Nintendo GameCube, Windows) – Entering the code (↑↑↓↓←→←→×○ on the PS2 version) on the title screen will give the characters silly noises while walking.

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles (GBA) – Entering the code at the title screen unlocks Very Hard Mode.

 

Dance Dance Revolution series[edit]

The Konami Code has been referenced in routines for some songs on Konami's Dance Dance Revolution series, and has also been an unlock mechanism on some versions:

Dance Dance Revolution 2ndMix (Arcade, PS) – The Single steps on Basic difficulty for the song "Make A Jam!" include the directional portion of the code (i.e. without B or A) five times throughout the song. A faint chime is heard in the music after each such pattern. The song was also a remix of a jingle played behind the "walking" Konami logo animation contained in some older games.

Dance Dance Revolution 2ndRemix (PS) – Entering the code ↑↑↓↓←→←→ on the Mode Selection Screen will unlock Super Mode.

Dance Dance Revolution 3rdMix (Arcade) – The Single steps on Basic difficulty for the song "It Only Takes a Minute" begin with the directional portion of the code.

Dance Dance Revolution 5thMix (PS) – The last 5 pictures in the Gallery are unlocked by highlighting #224 and entering the code, replacing B and A with × and ○, respectively. (This is because the × and ○ buttons are on the same locations on the PlayStation controller as the B and A buttons are on the Super NES controller.)

Dance Dance Revolution Extreme (Arcade, PS2) – All charts for the song "Twinbee ~Generation X~" contain the directional portion of the Konami Code as part of their charts, and the doubles charts all contain the sequence on the left pad, a reference to the code traditionally being entered by player 1.

Dance Dance Revolution Ultramix (Xbox) – If a gamepad is plugged into the fourth controller port, and the code is entered during the credits, all of the game's hidden songs are unlocked instantly.

Dance Dance Revolution Ultramix 2 (Xbox) – While in the credits screen, entering the code in sequence then in reverse unlocks all content.

Dance Dance Revolution SuperNova 2 (PS2) – While in the controller setup menu on the Japanese version of the game, using the Konami Code will unlock the alternate outfit for each of the dancers and makes them available in the shop.

Dance Dance Revolution X (Arcade, PS2) – The song "30 Lives (Up-Up-Down-Dance Mix)" by The Motion Sick, is directly about the Konami Code itself.

After completing the Plant chapter, when the clear code is presented on-screen, pressing ↑↑↓↓←→←→×○ will cause Snake to remark "What do you think you're doing!?" or "Stop foolin' around kid!", confirming the code. It cannot be used again once the clear data has been saved.

In the Substance version, as well as in the later HD Edition ports, entering "UUDDLRLRBA" as the player's username in "Missions" mode will unlock every stage and character.

Metal Gear Solid 3: Snake Eater (PS2, PS3, Xbox 360, Vita) – This game features several usages of the code

Pressing ↑↑↓↓←→←→□△ when the Konami logo first appears will cause it to flash, confirming the code. This will change the staff in the game's opening title sequence to display the "Opening Title Staff" – the staff who produced the title sequence.

When fighting The End, entering ↑↑↓↓←→←→□△ in the map viewer will show his location. The code needs to be entered each time the player looks at the map viewer. This only works on Normal difficulty setting or below.

While not an actual cheat, using CQC to interrogate EVA near the end of the game will sometimes make her recite part of the Konami Code. After she says the directional inputs, she says that she can't remember the rest due to the player playing the game on a PlayStation console.

After completing Operation Snake Eater, when the "Game Clear" screen is shown following the ending credits, pressing ↑↑↓↓←→←→×○ will make Snake remark "One more to go...".

Metal Gear Solid 4: Guns of the Patriots (PS3) – When fighting Crying Wolf, entering ↑↑↓↓←→←→×○ in the map viewer will show her location. Like with The End, the code needs to be entered each time the player looks at the map viewer. This only works on Solid Normal or below.

Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance (PS3, Xbox 360, PC, Shield) - Entering the code at the title screen unlocks the Very Hard and Revengeance difficulty settings, as well as unlocking every mission in the game. Raiden will announce the game's title if entered correctly.

If the player then selected a song related to Gradius, such as GRADIUS 2012 or Gradius -Full Speed-, at the end of their credit they would unlock one of the difficulties for the final boss.

Castlevania series[edit]

Kid Dracula (Family Computer) – Entering the code at the title screen will display a black screen with the text "There's nothing here!" in Japanese. The official English translation released in 2019 rewords it to "Sorry! nothing this time!"

Castlevania: Bloodlines (Mega Drive/Genesis) – Entering the code at the title screen (a sound will confirm it) enables the selection of the Expert difficulty in the option screen. The code also gives the player the possibility of starting the game with 9 lives if it is entered at the title screen after the music settings in the option screen have been set to BGM 05 and SE 073.

Castlevania Chronicles (PS) – Entering ↑↑↓↓←→←→X○ on the title screen will take the player to a hidden options menu that allows them to adjust the "system time" and turn on-off the transparency of the status bar in Original mode. The system time affects small things in the game, like the hands on the clock tower.

Castlevania: Harmony of Dissonance (GBA) – Entering the code when the Konami logo appears and choose Boss Rush to play as the original Simon Belmont, with the music and animations from the original Castlevania for NES. While significantly harder due to the limited movement of Simon Belmont, the player can do more damage with this character and collect far more hearts to fuel subweapon use against the bosses than the other two characters. Simon is also limited to special weapons from the first game: Holy Water, Knife, Axe, and Cross. (Additionally, the Holy Water weapon gives the "static flame" from the original Castlevania, not the moving flame from when Juste uses it.)

Castlevania: Lords of Shadow (Xbox 360, PlayStation 3) – Entering it at the load screen of a level (with analog sticks) and the player gets a cheat menu at the extras point.

Castlevania: Requiem (PlayStation 4) - Putting in the code will access the bonus mini-game, Peke from Castlevania: Rondo of Blood.

 

 

Knew about Contra and the TMNT cheats, but I really wish Castlevania would have had one for NES. Took me a long time to get to and beat Dracula.

The article was pretty shallow. We already know (like the article said) he's a vertical guy with good ball skills, who needs to work on route tree and polish. 

 

He was mostly with the 2s in OTAs, which was more or less a passing O and passing D camp. We should get an idea early camp on his progress. If he's not running more with the 1s after a few weeks of camp. he's likely to be brought along slow. 

 

Of course Campbell's health likely looms large in terms of his use this year.
