Hello, my fellow Stampede Blue members. It's the down part of the offseason so hopefully you guys can take the time out of your day to help. I have gotten myself into a small predicament with your classic "I don't know whose jersey to buy." One of my boys got a deal with legit Nike NFL jerseys so I decided to grab three of them. I'm getting a Luck and TY jersey for sure. The last jersey is where lies the problem. I want to grab a defensive player, but I don't know which one. I'm leading towards getting a Vontae Davis jersey since he's our best secondary player and is locked up long term. However, a few names keep popping up in the back of my head.
He's a playmaker at the LB position. He's gotten better each of the last two seasons. I, along with hopefully most of you, am very excited to see this player continue to get better with the White and Blue. With a better ILB in D'Qwell Jackson to make plays next to him, I see Freeman having an even better year than last year. He's going to be a free agent soon, and he's 28. Maybe he has already peaked. Maybe not. Only time will tell with #50.
This man is one of my favorite Colts of all time. Last season, Mathis proved that he and Freeney were EQUALLY talented. Many thought Mathis had benefitted his whole career playing opposite of Freeney until he recorded 20 sacks in 2013 and was snubbed the Defensive Player of the Year award. Only reason I'm scared about getting a Mathis jersey is due to the fact he's getting ready to retire. Same reason I chose TY over Reggie.
I have high hopes and big expectations for this hoss. At over 300 pounds and versatile enough to play all DL positions, that shows tremendous athleticism for a man of his size. Great run stopper with above average pass rushing skills. He's young and also locked up for several years. Because of defensive familiarity, I expect an immediate impact and production from Jones. Probably our best FA signing this offseason, and he's gone unnoticed.
I talk about Pat to my family and friends as if he's our QB and best player! Plus he's had an interesting career this far with his on the field success, drunk swimming, and Trindon Holliday tackle. Like a few others I've mentioned, he's locked up with us.
I'd appreciate if any of you guy have any reasons as to why I should get any of these players or anybody else for that matter. These three jerseys will be my first Colts jerseys I ever purchased so I don't want any of them to be regrets! Go COLTS!
