Harrison's success due to Edge being out?

Postby Free Bagel » Tue Oct 07, 2003 8:51 am

Last year, with Edge out/unhealthy (2 years to recover from an acl), Marvin set the NFL record for receptions.

This year, Edge returns healthy, and Harrison puts up a very very mediocre 137 yards and 1 td TOTAL in his first 3 games.

Then, Edge goes down again, and Harrison explodes for 400yds and 5 td's in only TWO games, one of which was against the best defense in the league no less.

Obviously, Harrison won't keep getting 2 TD's and 180yds a game, but will his production drop more than expected when Edge returns again? It seemed that when Edge was in there, the Colts were more determined to run a more balanced offense, and spread the ball around more. When Edge is out, it's Marvin Marvin Marvin. Thoughts?

I think Marvin will always do good. Look at his career stats. It's not like he is a two-year wonder. He has done good every year in his career. I have him on my team, so I may be a little biased, but I think he is the second best WR in the league. Next to Moss.

Yea sure Marvin was going up against the best pass defense for 10 minutes where he got shut down.. he started to get the big plays when Brian Kelly left the game with injury and his back up got burned non stop.

Here's Harrison's stats for 1999-2000 when Edge was arguably the best RB in the NFL:

1999: 115 rec, 1663 yds, 12 TDs
2000: 102 rec, 1413 yds, 14 TDs

He'll get his numbers with or without Edge.

Guest summed it up perfectly. Also, let it be noted they were playing comeback from 21 points.
"At 60 yards it wont be a record FG distance, It will however set a record for longest post field goal celebration if Gramatica makes it."

Al Michaels, in reference to a Gramatica 60YRD field goal attempt week 5(2003 season) of Monday Night Football.

Exactly. No need to worry about Marvin with or without Edge.
