    Frank Gore to sign with Lions

    So Schefter just tweeted this, making it sound a little less certain than the couple tweets in the OP. The lions are at least in consideration anyway
  2. I heard initial reports that he was considering Philly, wish he could have gone there for a real shot at a title. He's a great at RB and that kind of longevity at his position is just insane. He always handled his job like a true professional. Best of luck Frank! *Mods, I made this thread in the FA/draft section, but realized it may be more appropriate here, since the Mingo thread was posted here. Feel free to delete whichever one is in the incorrect section, I tried to delete it myself but it didn't appear to be an option. Sorry for being a noob, I don't post much, mostly just lurk

  4. I don't see Ballard offering him the kind of money he is probably after edit - sorry for the double post, feel free to delete it mods

    Take me in the mind of a Jarvis Landry.

    Lol OP I love the thread title. I think most people here probably didn't get the reference, so let's go inside the mind of a Greg Jennings... ***the language in this video is VERY nsfw! don't watch if you don't want to hear vulgar language
  7. Nobody interested in this? Guess I should have titled it "fire Pagano" and it would be at 8 pages already
  8. I'm sure everyone is probably sick of these threads by now, and I apologize for starting another one, but I didn't want this comment to be buried in another thread only to be ignored. The posts recently blaming everyone from Luck to the front office to the Patriots (not really, but given some of the posts I've seen, it doesn't seem like too much of a stretch) have me frustrated, and I had to give my 2 cents, and hopefully provide a little perspective. I understand that people are upset about Luck's situation, but the posting regarding it has gone from speculation to outright fabrication. The fact of the matter is that none of us know exactly what is going on with Luck's shoulder. It is human nature to want to attribute a cause to situations that are difficult or that we don't understand, but we need to be aware of this and realize that often there is no rhyme or reason to these things. There isn't always someone to blame, sometimes stuff just happens. I'm not saying it was managed perfectly, because I don't know all the details, but the decision to have surgery on a QB's throwing shoulder is never something to be taken lightly, and prognosis for rehab timelines are often very difficult, if not impossible. I am not at all surprised that Luck is taking more time to recover than peoples' hopes allowed them to expect. As a physician and as someone who has had this same surgery, sustained playing football and on my right shoulder nonetheless, I think I have a somewhat better understanding than most of what the surgery and recovery process entail. Obviously I am not a professional QB who is expected to perform at a high level, but I think I can imagine what Luck is going through. The rehab process is long, slow, and frustrating. There are days when you think you can do something, maybe get a little overzealous, and end up having pain for days/weeks later. It is hard to accept the limitations that come with this injury, and I know from personal experience that the motion of throwing a football is one of the last things to be recovered without pain afterwards. Not to mention the subconscious desire to protect your shoulder while throwing, therefore resulting in alterations to the throwing motion. I clearly remember being over a year post-surgery (I think it actually may have been 2 years), and trying to throw the football around at a backyard cookout/party. I was okay for a few throws, but the pain quickly surfaced, and after pushing myself and continuing for a little while (probably because I didn't want to accept that I still had such limitations), I begrudgingly had to stop, and dealt with pain for days afterwards. Considering that I am just a guy who enjoyed playing pickup football and didn't have 250+ lb men charging at me wishing to do me harm, I can only imagine how Luck feels. This year has been beyond frustrating, and I get that people are upset and looking for someone or something to direct that anger towards. However, the hate and negativity, much of which is well deserved in regards to issues not surrounding Luck's shoulder, have become misdirected lately. I feel sympathy for Luck, and have nothing but well wishes for him and for the Colts in this difficult time. I hope other fans can step back and see that this is not the end of the world, not entirely unexpected, and not such a simple situation that it can be boiled down to placing blame on one person or party. Go Colts
