French Recognition

He played okay.  He had one really bad snap.  A lot of pressure for Gardner was coming right up the gut and the Colts ground game was more behind between the guards and tackles than normal but that might have had more to do with who the Bucs have in the middle.  His PFF grade reflects him being okay and a big down grade from Kelly.

I think @John Hammonds has been a big supporter, and I'd like to say French has done a great job filling in for Kelly.  Against one of the best run defenses, helped rush for close to 145yds.

I know myself and 1959colts have always liked Wesley, he seems to be improving the more he plays. Lack of power more the technique has been the issue and still his main weakness. With Kelly likely gone after this season he appears to be the in house front runner to start (Pinter may challenge if he comes back healthy).

Seriously you are jesting.  He is way below average for his position.  He has a long way to go to be even considered for a starting role.  He’s only getting to play because Pinter is out.  Actually I could see us drafting a center to replace Kelly.  I think he might retire after this year.  His wife has to be worried about all of his concussions.  This year I want Kelly back asap.  French is not ready for prime time on a every day basis.

I agree if Kelly isn’t back next year the Colts will either draft a center or snag one in free agency.

Whatever PFF says - French passed the eye test, IMO.

I came in this thread because it said French recognition…but everyone is speaking English here…:sarcasm:

Comment of the day right there!

 

On a sidenote……have you noticed that no broadcast team has taken advantage of French Fries lined up next to each other. They will babble on about a former TE turned OT or a bball player now playing TE…..but they’ve literally missed an easy layup every game!

My fault.  I thought that was you. He played well in all his starts this year,  including against the Ravens, and the Buccaneers. 

No, no, I've been on record saying that French shouldn't be playing At All.  If you're looking for the Anti-French guy in the bunch, I'm your guy.  :D

This makes me think they are trying to make him a center.
