  1. A Torn Labrum Illustration (Ljuck's Injury)

    That actually isn't true. I trained race horses for 22 years, and we use Depo (cortisone) A LOT on horses joints like their ankle, knee, and hock joints. Standardbred race horses go through a tremendous amount of physical stress, and arthritis and inflammed joints are super common. So what we do is inject an affected joint with cortisone after some synovial fluid is first drained out. I can tell you that I have seen cortisone take an ankle joint that was inflammed and super sore and within two days give it the appearance of a calm, cool, totally healthy ankle. The horse could go from 50% lame to 5% lame almost overnight. Most of the time the effects from the cortisone would last anywhere from 3-6 weeks. So the fact that Luck had this injection and was no better? To me that is a very very bad sign.
  2. Marlon Mack: Can someone explain this?

    No true. Ballard has stated the development of the young guys is just as important, if not more so, the wins and losses. And everyone knows the Colts aren't going anywhere this year.
  3. Marlon Mack: Can someone explain this?

    Ahhhh. I forgot about that. The Miami connection. That makes total sense. What is bewildering is most coaches always go for the more explosive, younger player at RB. It is just the nature of the position. But with Gore, it is the opposite. But yeah, that makes total sense. I'ms surprised Ballard hasn't stepped in and told the coaching staff to start playing Mack more and to get him more plays in space. After all, a draft pick next year may depend on it. Better to find out what you have now.
  4. Marlon Mack: Can someone explain this?

    Someone wrote about it. I will try and find the link. The difference is when Gore is in, the DE's aim straight for the QB and forget about Gore because he is not a home run threat. That is why the gaps are more open for Gore. When Mack is in, the DE's forget about the QB and aim straight for Mack because chances are they are going to him and they know he is a home run threat. So, that is on the coaches. Mack is fighting against 2 extra players (the DE's) that Gore is not. The coaches either need to come up with plays that counter act that, or play Mack more so the DE's cannot tee off on him all of the time.
  5. Let's get this out of the way. Frank Gore is a great teammate and has been a very good runner for many years. He is a credit to the team and the NFL. But let's be honest, he is on the very back end of his career and he offers NOTHING to the Colts as far as what is their future. Nothing. He won't even be here next year. So why, why, WHY does the coaching staff insist on giving him so many touches when you have a potential starting RB, and maybe a star, in Marlon Mack? Mack is the future. Or maybe not. But why not find out now when the season is lost anyway?? Every time Gore is in the game, the DE's rush full tilt towards the QB and totally ignore him. Where as when Mack comes in? They aim straight for him and many times he is hit in the backfield, where as Gore hardly ever is. That is because the D knows what is coming and is NOT afraid of Gore, but they are afraid of Mack. Not only that, they rarely throw screens to him or pitches outside like you see with so many other RB's. This is totally 100% the coaches fault. And the thing is, it makes no sense. I don't think anyone expects the Colts to win a lot with out Luck. So Pagano's best shot of keeping his job is too develop the young guys. Ballard has even said that. And yet he refuses to play him enough. It defies logic! I don't get it. Other than Pagano is an *.
  6. No player with a rep like A Luck is going to publicly complain, at least not right now when he is hurt and collecting on a huge contract without playing. Plus that is not Luck's style. He is known as a humble human BEAN.
  7. I can't decide whether Ballard sounds like an 80 year old man on the phone or Bill Clinton. As for the interview, I was ok with it. Yes DD is a loudmouth, but I don't think he is a guy that people hate because of it. At least I don't. I respect him for asking some real questions. Ballard was a real pro in how he handled it as well. But I do think he lied about some things. And that is not good. So much better to be upfront and honest then to lie and create mistrust. I wish DD had asked him about the Colts medical staff and the plethora of injuries the Colts have suffered the past 10 years compared to other teams, and why so many injuries end up in so much drama. I was really struck by what he said about S Morris. For him or anyone to say that Tolzein looked better than Morris is either an outright lie....or incompetence. With Luck, who really knows what is going in. I tend to think Luck is getting fed up with everything, and I believe what was said about that text. Bottom line is the Colts need to bring in either one of 2 types of coach. A proven builder like a Harbaugh, or a young innovative offensive minded coach to hopefully help Luck achieve what he should career wise. If they go with another Pagano type? If I was luck I would get the heck out of Indy.
  8. Doyel from INDYSTAR really lays into some Colts.....

    Agree. Far too many blowouts for them to be playing hard. I think people misconstrue players not bickering and complaining behind the scenes as playing hard and being behind their coach rather than actual game day effort.
  9. Doyel from INDYSTAR really lays into some Colts.....

    Imagine that happening on the Patriots. Would NEVER happen.
  10. Doyel from INDYSTAR really lays into some Colts.....

    I don't know how many of you watch Ballers on HBO, but TY reminds me of wr Ricky Jerret.
  11. Doyel from INDYSTAR really lays into some Colts.....

    You should have access. But you can only read a certain number of articles without a sub. Clear your history/cookies cache and then try. Should work then.
  12. I am surprised no one posted this article yet from Indy Star. In it, the writer really gives some insight into some of the Colts and their attitudes. Sounds like many of the rookies and undrafted FAs are humble and hard working, which make sense. Also sounds like Pagano's relaxed attitude is letting some of the players with lets just say more narcissistic personalities get even worse. Moncrief wearing a t shirt with a pic of himself on it the day after a terrible game? And TY sounds like a jerk to be honest. I have always liked TY as a player, but I never respected him as one because I do not think he is a fighter the way Reggie was. He disappears way too much and lays down much too often. Interesting read....thoughts?
  13. Marlon Mack

    That is what irks me about this coaching staff. They seem to do things that 99% of other coaching staffs would not. For example playing Tolzein. And stick with Gore when he offers NOTHING for the future. There probably is not another team he would be starting on. Ridiculous at this point for Mack not to be the full blown starter.
  14. Please God no!! I would hope any solid football man would know that Pagano is not going to lead this team anywhere. IF he is brought back I will be stunned. Actually I don't expect him to last past game 5 or 6.
  15. Nice! Yeah it is amazing just in the past 3 years how much traffic has increased on the 5 both north and south bound And as you said it is only going to get worse.
