  1. Harbaugh

    Why would we want a guy that's been the epitome of underwhelming . . . in the Big 10? I'm sorry, but Harbaugh's offense is light-years behind what innovative teams like the Rams, Chiefs, Patriots, and Steelers are doing. That is not what the Colts need.
  2. brissetts ranking

    2 problems with that statement. 1) He's about as much of a running QB as Peyton was. Jacoby ran a 5.0-second 40-yard dash at the combine. There are offensive linemen that run sub-5.0 40s. 2) This is Jacoby's first full season playing, so he's much closer to being a rookie than a veteran.
  3. What If Jimmy brings Chuck Back in 18?

    If Chuck is back? "We are reporting live from Lucas Oil Stadium . . ."
  4. Le Raven Clark a Healthy Scratch

    NFC Personnel Director on Clark (Draft Profile): "He's going to end up being big time in our league. He's got elite foot quickness, he's long and he's smart. He'll keep getting better once he gets to a pro offense and away from that stuff Texas Tech does and he'll become one of the top five tackles in our league."
  5. QB next season

    His shoulder has to get fixed first.
  6. Brissett 1 Mistake

    Every QB makes mistakes. Every game. The problem is, the Colts roster and coaching staff are not at an elite level, so they have no margin for error. They can't cover up occasional mistakes. 1 TO is enough to sink this team at this point. All that said, today's pick goes on Jack.
  7. Stop Blaming Pagano

    No, but he did hire Ted Monachino, a man that employs vanilla zone defenses that are less complicated to diagnose that many high school school defenses. And he did hire Chud, an OC that has taken years to realize how to successfully utilize T.Y. Hilton on a consistent basis. An OC that has taken years to realize that 7-step drop PA passes aren't successful when the offensive line can't stop a nosebleed. Chuck is responsible for those hires. He has hired a lot of his buddies, and those decisions will be his downfall. Also, Chuck is one of the worst head coaches in the league when it comes to in-game strategy (clock management, challenges, timeout usage, etc.). His teams tend to commit penalties of the undisciplined and boneheaded variety (procedural penalties, personal foul penalties, etc.). Chuck is a good man and it makes me sad that it's not working out for him. That said, I want the Colts to be successful and there is more than enough evidence now that Chuck is not the guy to lead this team and restore it to a perennial playoff contender. He will be gone at the end of the season. It's a lock.
  8. Ballard to be on JMV today

    1) JMV asked all the tough questions. 2) Ballard handled all of them like a pro. That was a fun listen.
  9. Labrum Tear and Recovery

    There are rumors that he has seen Dr. Andrews recently (good idea). However, I heard he did not perform the surgery in this instance (source: Will Carroll). And I really, really hope that you are right! And when he does get back healthy, hopefully it's with either Mike McGlinchey at LT or Quenton Nelson at LG and Andrew can go forward and enjoy a healthy career. He still has plenty of time left if he can get back!
  10. I would agree with that. I meant it in a very literal sense of the word. Wasn't trying to imply he was a diva. I would've said "Luck's entourage" if I wanted to go down that road. But I didn't, because I agree with you that Luck isn't a diva. All that said, he would have made this process a lot easier (he still can), if he came out and spoke publicly instead of issuing statements via his agents or the organization. That's just my opinion, but I respect his privacy and I think his motive is pure: he is embarrassed by all of this and doesn't want to take the spotlight off the team. I just think his decision is having the opposite impact: he is drawing more attention and taking more spotlight off the team by maintaining radio silence. Thoughts?
  11. camp (kamp); noun: "the supporters of a particular party or doctrine regarded collectively" I'd say the word fits the dictionary's definition. Have a good one bud.
  12. Labrum Tear and Recovery

    The Brees example is a very good one because he was able to return after sustaining a torn labrum and torn rotator cuff. It’s a comeback example that elicits hope. But he’s also kind of an exception to the rule, which is the part that worries me. And at at the time he suffered his injury, many thought it would be career-ending. Here’s an excerpt from an SI piece on Brees: “When San Diego Chargers quarterback Drew Brees tore the labrum in his right shoulder in a 23-7 loss to the Denver Broncos on Dec. 31, 2005, many thought his career could be in jeopardy. Famed orthopedic surgeon Dr. James Andrews, who performed surgery on Brees a week after that season-ending game, says he could not believe how Brees has not only come back from the injury, but has continued to play at a high level for many years.” https://www.si.com/si-wire/2014/06/13/james-andrews-drew-brees-remarkable-comeback As a fan, I feel blindsided by everything that has happened this season but I think the Colts feel that way too. No one to blame, really. Stuff happens. Really hope Luck can play again at the level he used to.
  13. Labrum Tear and Recovery

    I’m not trying to challenge you, I’m genuinely curious. From what I have read, I was under the impression that the posterior labrum repair surgery is extremely rare among NFL QBs. So I’m trying to get you to list the others. Brees’ entire shoulder was destroyed. His damage was more extensive in scope compared to Luck.
  14. Labrum Tear and Recovery

    And they’re throwing a baseball, which is 5 ounces. An NFL football is 15 ounces. MLB starters pitch once every 5 days. NFL QBs are throwing 50+ balls a day (easily) every week in practice and then throwing it 30-40 times in a game. Btw, list all the NFL QBs that have returned from a posterior labrum tear.
