Pete Prisco put out his AFC South report, and hit the nail on the head. He says the Colts will actually be better because of the personnel changes in the secondary and at the linebacker spot.
In other news, 18to88.com reader JD has nominated Justin Snow for the Classic Colts. He says, “Just look at the guys he has been snapping the ball to and it’s easy. Vandejerk was the most prolific % wise kicker in the league during his tenure with us. Hunter is always right up there tops in the league with his net yds allowed. These guys didn’t get there by chasing balls around in the backfield as a result of a bad snap. Very unappreciated indeed.”
I would add from Wikipedia: In 2003, long snapped for Mike Vanderjagt where they combined, along with the place kicker holder (Hunter Smith) becoming the first long snapper, holder and kicker trio in the league’s history to go an entire season, including the playoffs, without missing a field goal or point-after attempt.
He jacked a snap in XLI, so that’s a strike against him. I’m willing to put him on the waiting list to see if he does anything noteworthy, good or bad before he retires. If you have an opinion on Snow or any other nominee for the Classic Colts, drop us a line.
