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


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 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!

Brad Zimanek column: Collins shows what he's learned
By Brad Zimanek October 19, 2008

The Packers free safety has turned the corner from good to great, from being serviceable to becoming a star, from being noticed occasionally for doing something good or bad throughout the course of a game to one continually making game-changing plays.

Collins did it again Sunday against Peyton Manning, one of the best quarterbacks in NFL history.

Early in the third quarter, the Packers held a tenuous 17-7 lead with Indianapolis facing a third-and-6 from the Packers 48-yard line.

Mannings pass deflected off the hands of Reggie Wayne and into Collins arms. Though he stood 62 yards from the end zone, but he said he knew he was going to score.

Im a former running back, I know what to do with it when I get the ball, Collins said.

The run though was filled with excitement. He broke a tackle from Wayne and headed up field with several stops and starts along the way.

Whenever were on offense and they score defensively, thats always a back-breaker, Wayne said. It was a good play by him.

Collins favorite move on the run? The one he put on Colts tackle Ryan Diem inside the 20-yard line that left him flat-footed, grasping air.

Thats what Ive been doing the whole season, Collins said after the Packers' 34-14 victory. That play changed the game.

Its Collins fourth interception of the season tying him with Charles Woodson for the team lead through seven games while also equaling his career total entering the year.

It was his second interception return for a touchdown to go along with a 42-yarder in the fourth quarter Sept. 14 in a 48-25 win over Detroit.

Thats a far cry from last year. Collins started only 13 games and struggled with a variety of injuries, but he failed to get any interceptions and was credited with defending only six passes. Thats when offseason work with Woodsons help became a priority.

It wasnt the amount of film we watched, Woodson said. I helped teach him what to look for. How to look for different personnel groups and to react. To play them out in your head, so when you see the ball, youll know what they are trying to do.

If you do that, nine of 10 times you are going to be right.

That study paid dividends for Collins on the next drive following his interception return. It was equally important in keeping Manning from reclaiming lost momentum.

The Colts faced second-and-9 from the Packers 27-yard line and both Wayne and Marvin Harrison lined up on the right. Harrison had several steps on Will Blackmon off the ball. It appeared they were destined to reach the end zone, which would simply add to the duos record as the top touchdown connection in NFL history.

But Collins shot across and deflected the ball before it had a chance to reach Harrison.

They had been trying to set that up all game, Collins said. They had Reggie in the slot and they wanted me to bite toward the middle on him. But I saw formation during the week and I was able to get over there and break up the play.

Collins trails only Nick Barnett for the team lead in tackles. Hes on pace to break 100 for the second time in his career after posting a career-high 102 in 2006.

On a team struggling with injuries, Collins has been more productive than Barnett, A.J. Hawk and Aaron Kampman. Only Woodsons performance can stack up as the teams defensive MVP and Woodson calls Collins performance thus far unbelievable.

He always knows where he needs to be, Kampman said of Collins. Hes always had the physical ability to match up with anyone. But now hes a student of the game. Thats allowing him to reach his potential. All that work hes put in is paying off.

I've been all over Collins for a while now and he's really proved me wrong. I also feel like a schmuck for criticizing him last year given that his Dad was battling cancer last year, which obviously affected his play.

Nick is really living up to them giving him the #36 (in all ways other than LeRoy's general douchebaggery)!

The only thing Nick Collins did wrong is he did his Lambeau Leap in section 136 instead of 134. I was THAT close to being on TV.

What a bum. They should put him on the bench this week. that will teach him. (Yes I know this week is a bye week.)

The pass breakup on that TD attempt to Harrison was a thing of beauty. I can't think of many safeties in the league right now with the speed, jumping ability, and hands to knock that one away.

Collins is obviously playing great. I attribute it to his learning and his supporting staff being MUCH better.

Agreed, I thought you were a great last line of defence, but never imagined you would become the playmaker that you have.

I could literally kiss you on the lips, neck, chest....... you get the idea. :D
