    What a surprise.................

    Or maybe it was just Mannings quick release that made him look better than he really is...like many people have been saying for a long time...

      Hell, I'll take him in Dallas. He's better than Doug Free as a future at LT.

        never rated him, got good press because people thought his low sacks allowed numbers meant he was doing a great job. was a product of manning's quick release.

          Peyton's quick release and pocket presence obviously makes everyone look better, but the guys in front of him aren't bums. They aren't world-beaters in run-blocking, certainly, but pass pro is their forte and they can be good. Peyton covers up the occassional mistakes.

          Ugoh has nimble feet and long arms, has natural agility that can also be showcased in moving to the second level if he gets the chance. And whenever he's free he immediately aims to put a hit on a defender and help his back get more yards, one of things I really like about him.

          I think he's underrated as a run defender, the problem is that the Colts (for whatever reason) just don't run enough behind him. They average their best yards per carry when they do, but they just don't do enough of it. I wish they would, once all this nonsense is over with.

          All reports were that he was having a good camp so far, battling against the likes of Freeney and Mathis daily mind you, so this whole thing really strikes me as puzzling and frankly stupid.

          But as I said earlier, I still refuse to believe that a healthy Tony Ugoh won't be starting at left tackle come the start of the regular season. And I wouldn't right him off, he's just entering his third year, plus my feeling is that he'll be with the Colts after 2010.

            Last year in only 12 starts he gave up 3 sacks, 11 QB hits and 29 pressures. You can't afford for your LT to give up almost a hit a game, gotta protect peyton.

              As opposed to the several hits per game Charlie Johnson would give up?


              The problem arises when people use statistics like a drunk uses a lamp post: for support instead of illumination.

              If luck is where preparation meets opportunity, then clutch is where failure meets luck.

With short bullet passes and long bombs he marches his troops into enemy territory, balancing this aerial assault with a sustained ground attack which punches holes in the forward wall of the enemy’s Defensive Line.

                    In Baseball the object is to go home and be safe.

                      1.4 vs. .9, who's better?

                        I spent time thinking of that joke, and all I get is this frosty reaction? You could at least type 'lol' just for my ego's sake. Harsh, man... that's harsh.

                            I chuckled heartily, what I typed was my first though after the laugh.

                              This just makes no sense to me. JC is kind of pissing me off. Charlie Johnson is the guy I always would roll my eyes at when watching the O-line. He is not a starter...

                                At the end of the day it doesn't really matter who's where in practice before the first pre-season game. What matters is who's on that blindside when it's game one.

                                By that time Ugoh will be in place.

                                If not, he will be by week 2.
