DD is quoting on his show that he is looking at returning in 3 - 6 weeks..... why did the coaches feel the need to lie on Luck and his condition. That alone is enough to to question any loyalty to the team when they blatantly lie to the fans... The cloak and dagger stuff isn't helping or hurting another team that much.... and if they say they expected back sooner, then they have terrible evaluation skills from the medical side too.... fits this team though.
So can we be honest for a minute? I think we underestimated Melvin. I, personally, didn't think Melvin would see a roster spot, much less start over Quincy Wilson, who when healthy, had blanket coverage with slight mistimed swipes to bat away the ball. I am really happy for Melvin to have made such great improvement from last year when he was getting beat by receivers constantly, always out of position to now making 2 interceptions in one game. They may have been 'lucky', but he was in position to make the pick and has definitely improved since last year.
Our secondary as a whole, we have 4 relatively new players including Melvin: Wilson, Hooker, and Hairston. Going forward, I think our secondary could be much, much better than 2016, even without Davis. Not trying to blow the same horn, but Ballard has helped our franchise take a few steps forward toward a future championship. Defense vastly improved (still needs work) and 1-2 without Luck (same as with Luck last year), I think I'm beginning to see a light near the end of the tunnel.
