Eric Smith of Bleacher Report has some midseason player evaluations as well as some very high opinions of our Indianapolis Colts, which he believes should be 4-2 if not 5-1 right now. He is also very impressed with former CFL linebacker Jerrell Freeman, calling him one of the five best players on the team:
Freeman has a team high 55 tackles, one sack, one interception, and one touchdown this season. That’s a far cry from his CFL days the last two seasons and being cut from NFL teams prior to that. Now that Angerer is back Freeman only boosts the depth at the linebacking spot and helped proved the doubters wrong.
If it wasn’t for Freeman the Colts wouldn’t be 3-3 right now. He’s surely going to be a staple on this roster for years to come.
While I’m not sold on the idea that the Colts wouldn’t be where they are without Jerrell Freeman, there’s no denying he was a great find by the Colts’ front office. Indy now has three absolute tackling machines at inside linebacker. Oh, and Smith has four other players who have really impressed him so far this season. Yes, 7 games isn’t quite midseason for the Colts, who had an early bye, but it’s still a nice positive article as we head toward the game in Tennessee. Scroll on back up there and check it out.
