Dwight Freeney went onto XTRA 1360 this morning and talked about his time with the Colts and how he envisioned hitting Peyton Manning in practice:
“It would definitely be great to get after him. He’s a great competitor, I’m a great competitor. How many times have I envisioned hitting him during practice, when he had that five-yard halo around him and you couldn’t go in that circle? Millions of times. So it would be fun to get after him a little bit.” – Freeney said on XTRA Sports 1360
I can envision it also. Dwight Freeney speeding by the tackle on the corner and blasting Peyton for a strip sack. Manti Te’o scoops up the fumble and hustles down the field with his 5.6+ speed for the score. He is game fast though, so don’t worry about it.
I am sure the Denver folks could ask the same question to Shaun Phillips too and he has envisioned the same thing on Philip a few times.
That week 10 matchup is going to be a blast! Freeney gets to hit Peyton a few times. Shaun Phillips will get to hit Philip a few times. Quentin Jammer. Louis Vasquez. Wes Welker. Does he still count as a former Charger?
I can’t freaking wait to see the matchup. Down with the Donks.
