    My theory on luck situation.

    I've been waiting for someone to do the research and explain the situation because it's not an easy explanation (and I do not post much), so here goes. First, I'm not a sports medicine physician, physical therapist, or athletic trainer. These are the experts. I have worked with injured athletes including labral injuries/surgeries. As others have said, this is a different situation compared to last year. Last year Luck had a limited time to heal and rehabilitation. As he said, he skipped steps to try to be ready. That works for some athletes (M. Hooker), not for others. Labral injuries and return to play are difficult to predict. My understanding is that Luck could easily through a regulation football now if needed (a few reps). He's been through range of motion exercises, manual muscle tests, and isokinetic testing (and IK exercises that mimic the throwing motion). Some of these exercises are much more difficult than actually throwing a football. He doesn't need to be ready until training camp so why force the issue. He needs to have his throwing repetitions at a high level to make all the throws during TC. He will still be on a "pitch count" during TC just like Caldwell did with Manning (and what most coaches do in TC, with their starting QBs). That's the reason for extra quarterbacks in TC. Some take this as a problem or issue with his shoulder. It's not a problem...except for fans that do not know the process and think the worse. Luck will be ready for training camp because that is the time table. Yes, he could develop a problem, but given the thoroughness of the rehab process that is not likely. It's more likely he would have some other type of issue or injury that's not related to his throwing motion. This is the reason for optimistic outlook in the Colt's organization. I'm not silly enough to think that this will put the issue to bed, or sports journalist will not continue to question Lucks return to action.... But I do hope it answers most of the questions. Sorry for the long post......

    Kneeling and penalty

    Well it's a free country and the owners have every right to "force" their employees to honor the country this way......

    Frank Reich Mic’d Up

    I'll admit that during the Playoffs I was excited to see the NE offense and what McDaniels would bring to the Colts. I have tremendous respect for Tony Dungy, but he missed the call on McDaniels. When he was preparing to accept the Colts job he should have notified BB and Kraft up front with the message..... if you want to talk, now is the time, otherwise I'm taking the Colts job. He clearly does not understand the professional aspect of being a head coach. Staying with the Patriots was the easy way out. I believe he has serious doubts about his head coaching abilities after the Denver experience. In the end we got Reich and I'm happy with the outcome and looking forward to next season.
  4. I would defer to you about skills for the different defensive schemes, however I believe we will only be in cover 2/cover3 ~50% of the time. Seems to me that it would be easier to teach a press cover to play zone than the other way around. We will need to play man coverage against some teams.

    Colts Sign CB Acker

    He may be a good depth player in a cover two scheme.

    Statement from Jim Irsay

    This reminds me of the Vietnam war protests. Everyone who protested and marched were called communists, atheists (and much worse), and told to leave the country if they didn't agree with the governments position. I will continue to honor the soldiers that fought (and died) in the war, but the protesters were correct. It was a stupid waste of lives. I'm sorry I don't understand, God wants me to pray on my knees but if I do that during the national anthem I'm being disrespectful.

    When will Luck be taken off PUP?

    Yes. Let's come back in a few weeks and see who's correct.

    TJ Green at CB

    I'm not a Psychiatrist but I did stay at a Holiday Inn Express last night. This seems to be a good place to set up my practice. Now if I can find my script pad for Xanax.........
  9. Thanks Superman! I suspect that some of this was covered in the Irsay-Gruden meetings in Houston. Even though most think that Irsay went in an attempt to talk Gruden into coaching, I believe they talked about ways the Colts must improve. Gruden loves to illustrate with game tape and they spent nearly nine hours reviewing. Hopefully points such as this was included.

    Offensive line fixed!

    Understand, Jim Irsay knows lots more about football than I'll ever know. And I believe he meant that the players for a good offensive line are on the roster. The football world (and Colts fans) will agree with Jim when we see the offensive line play well on the field (and the OL knows this).

    Luck

    Thanks NewColtsFan! It's great to hear what Colts fans are saying (most of the time). I'm on here on most days just to see what's up, generally don't post unless I have something to add that's not been covered. I use to live in Indiana and have Colts season tickets, but this is a good way to keep up with the team. As with all Colts fans, I'm hoping we make a big jump this year.

    Luck

    I apologize and should've been more concise in my previous statement "I hope I'm wrong". I should've said I hope I'm wrong, as a worst case scenario, that all three would not be ready and available in game one.

    Luck

    I understand that many are not happy with the Colt's coaches and medical staff, but it's not easy to predict how long (and in some case if athletes will return at all) it will be until return to play. First understand that you are talking about medical information which is private (and the Colts have no right to talk about medical information without the athlete's permission). Secondly it's not easy to predict when the person will return to play because everyone heals differently. In Manning's case I would wager that his doctor's didn't know if he would ever play again. Peripheral nerve regeneration is almost impossible to predict. In Luck's case, my guess is that the doctors told CP that he would be fine with rest (and he passed that on to us). He wasn't going to tell us (and other teams) that Luck had a shoulder injury and he may not be able to play. My best guess is none of the medical staff knew that he would need shoulder surgery until after the scans.

    Luck

    I wouldn't be surprised if Luck, Geathers, and Hooker, all miss the start of the season. Geathers' injury takes us back to the Manning situation where it's difficult to determine how much nerve damage has occurred (if any) and how that impacts muscle strength/function. While Hooker and Luck's injuries involved Labral tears. Return to play after Labral surgery is very difficult to predict without knowing the amount of damage in the joint and the healing time needed. The Labrum heals very slowly because of poor vascular blood flow. I hope I'm wrong on all.
