Nick Collins

I'm glad you learned how to catch. You've always been a good tackler, but you've morphed into a great all around safety.

I love you,

I'm not going to apologize for backing him up. I'm proud of myself for being right. nothing wrong with that.

nothing at all.


I dont wanna steal Nick's thunder here. But i thought Aaron Rouse played pretty damn good tonight too. The read on that 99 yard Pick 6 was professional. It was against a damn good QB as well. I know Atari will replace him when he is healthy and that Nick Collins has a choke hold on his starting position, but this kid might be that bad ass leader we have been talking about needing. Watching his locker room video and seeing how physical he was today with a good group of WRs. Im not condoning dirty play at all... his definetely intentional face mask... well say what you want about it, but i have never seen a legendary defense that was nice .

Collins has been on my starting DB for fantasy this entire season, and i'm not sorry. hehe. i've been a believer since the beginning of preseason. he's a rising star, i think we can all see it.

god...it's so great to see this kind of stuff from our secondary, huh? really great stuff this year!!!

Great thread guys. While I did not dislike Nick I was never vocal in support of him either.
I just figured that he was young as is most of the team and he would get better with time. Of course I assumed Ahmad Carroll would develope into a solid DB too.

Nick --

I always loved your 93 speed in Madden. User picking with you was easy because I could cover the whole field with you. I manually controlled you at safety, and now you're manually controlling my heart with your playmaking skills. I knew you had it in you. Did this letter just get weird?

Nick...Im sorry for what I said during the preseason. When I said that you could get your arms chopped off and still tackle just as well, as long as you had your shoulders. Without those beautiful arms...We wouldn't have your beautiful hands...without your beautiful hands..we wouldnt have the beautiful INT's. On to the probowl!!

I give you credit for backing him up. Some others backed him up too. My comment about your post was just meant as a joke. I guess it's not the first time that satire has been misinterpreted on the Internet. I'll try and be a little more careful.

Bozz.. and am with you.. I said back to last year.. Collins is the QB of this secondary.. assignment sure. But he has elevated his game with confidence.. I apologize for thinking you were never going to become the "big" play guy.

Here is too hoping I can start my own Colledge, Hawk, or Poppinga thread in the near future. Wait.. maybe that Poppinga covering the TE thread will have to wait.. Chillar assumed the role. ;)
I think when there's enough will and aggression, there's no shortage of talent either.

I have to agree, I was really hoping Rouse would get the starting job during training camp! Boy was I wrong! Collins really seems to "get it" this year - hat's off to him!

Yeah, well I remember the days of Ahmad Carroll and Mike Hawthorne. We waited long enough. This secondary is shaping up to be as good, if not better than that of the '96 Packers. One difference is that I think the '96 safeties were better, but the 08 corners are better than the '96 corners.

Agreed, I never posted anything anti-Collins but I was hoping for Rouse too. Upside is Rouse gets more time to learn and strengthen that depth. Great job Nick Collins!
