  1. Luck Seeking Treatment for Shoulder in Europe

    Very concerning. They said rehab... And now he's off in Europe looking for other options? Alarming if true.
  2. Henry Anderson suffered a fractured larynx Sunday

    Wow too bad. He can't catch a break. One of the few young pieces on defense that could develop into a playmaker.
  3. Tony Donahue: It's very possible that Luck never plays again

    Exactly. The media presents it as: Colts have an issue, Manning is the only one that can solve it, and he will solve it 100%. The way they frame it is ridiculous .
  4. Tony Donahue: It's very possible that Luck never plays again

    I'm sure I'll get trashed for this, but I'm so tired of the Manning thing. No evidence whatsoever that making him team president is a good thing. He's got zero experience. Being a good player does not equal being a good executive. I'm not against him joining the organization at all. But JMV, Krazitv and others pushing the narrative that he's going to ride in and save the day is just too much.
  5. Tony Donahue: It's very possible that Luck never plays again

    Not buying this....yet. Not sure why this would be determined now - he's going to rehab and then be checked up again in December. Seems way to premature to say there's a chance he's not going to play again. Also, not buying this Tony has a source. He said Luck was going to IR...when it became obvious this was a possibility after Ballard's press conference. And now this? Meh. Lots of people speculating right now.
  6. Lucks current Injury: Caused by Indy

    Too little too late, should have been done when he originally hurt the shoulder in 2015.
  7. Lucks current Injury: Caused by Indy

    I agree with a lot of what you are saying. Luck isn't stupid, but he's a player - meaning that if given a choice, most players are going to choose to play. The team has a responsibility to do what's best for him and the team, regardless. I realize it's all in hindsight - but the team let him play through the injury, which now has effected the entire shoulder. Presumably, they wouldn't have let him play if they realized this would happen...but they did. And at the end of the day, results have to matter. It's been mismanaged. It's a little speculation on my part, but I believe the reason Irsay is "furious" at the medical staff is because he was told that playing through the injury wouldn't make things worse...but it did. And here we are - I'd be furious too if I was in his place.
  8. Lucks current Injury: Caused by Indy

    Players always want to play. Colts have to do what's right for him and the team. That's their responsibility.
  9. Lucks current Injury: Caused by Indy

    This isn't finger pointing, it's accountability. Colts allowed Luck to play through the injury, and as a result it's messed up his entire shoulder, not just the labrum.
  10. Lucks current Injury: Caused by Indy

    https://amp.nfl.com/news/story/0ap3000000871706/article/andrew-luck-advised-not-to-throw-for-months-to-focus-on-rehab?networkId=4595&site=.news&zone=story&zoneUrl=url%3dstory&zoneKeys=s1%3dstory&env=&pageKeyValues=prtnr%3dind%3bteam%3dind%3bconf%3dafc%3bdvsn%3dacs&sr=amp This article (from Ian Rapport so you know it's reliable) makes it very clear that Lucks current status is on the Colts. He should have never played through the injury; he should have had surgery right away. According to Rapsheet, his current status is a result of playing through the injury. The labrum is repaired, but the shoulder is a mess due to playing with it for two years. I've resisted the narrative that the colts mishandled Luck... I can't anymore. They absolutely handled this the wrong way, and now his season is over and, in my opinion, career is in jeapordy. Also - this is why irsay is upset and feels he's being misled. Someone (medical? Grigson?) said he could play through this and delay surgery. And here we are.
  11. Vontae Davis Out Sunday

    Apparently, it was a "coaches decision." Pagano's call. Not injury related, not for personal reasons. For some reason coaches decided he should not travel with the team. Discipline related?
  12. Vontae Davis Out Sunday

    Stephen Holder directly contradicts this. I'd believe him over Pro Football talk 100% of the time.
  13. Head Scratcher?-Who is the new Colt

    They do have an open roster spot... So hopefully it's not in response to an injury we don't know yet.
  14. Doyel from INDYSTAR really lays into some Colts.....

    It's amazing how everyone loses their minds on a couple of losses. If they win the game Sunday, this article never sees the light of day. Just complete overreaction.
  15. Hypothetical scenario for Luck situation

    Nobody said anything about him forgetting how to play. But if he's off for nearly two years, there's definitely going to be a lot of rust to shake off. At this point, he's been off and healing for about 10 months, nearly a full calandar year. If the shoulder is ready, cleared by the docs, he needs to play. And for the record, they need to be conservative and take their time with him. Which I think they are doing. I think the teams approach is correct. I'm not advocating to play him before he's ready or anything like that.
