Per one Phil B.'s twitter I think (I was driving and didn't hear it clearly) that the NFL has fined six players for hits on Luck and he suspects Mayo's fine is coming.

Also reported that Justin Anderson has been activated and TE Kyle Miller has been waived as well as signing a CB to the practice squad. I didn't catch his name.

I hope Anderson can play. We need o-line depth badly.

I'm not excited about Anderson, based on what I've seen and read. But hopefully he can make something happen.

Didn't even know Kyle Miller was still here. Saunders has been Fairly Good, must've forgot all about Miller

6 Patriots?

I think he meant 6 total players, not necessarily all Patriots players. Knighton was fined $25,000 it appears for his hit on Luck on the play where Luck's pass was intercepted by Ross and the interception was nullified by the penalty. I don't see where the player (can't remember who it was) that hit Luck when he slid. I hope that doesn't draw a fine. I can see the penalty definitely but there was no malicious intent so I hope that player doesn't get fined. It was a stupid play but he realized it and apologized to Luck

I believe that was the S Landry that did that. Then they shook hands afterwards on it

I think it encouraging that they activated him. I'm with you on the scouting reports , they are all terrible. However , Grigson says he has the feet of a good LT and if he developes , he will be a joke of a steal in round 7. He really is a " raw" player as he spent time at Georgia playing defense. Boom - bust type player that really has no "bust" considering we only used a 7thon him.

he was fined..and deserved it imo. gotta be smarter than that..just a stupid play. only 10k i believe

i expect arrington to fined for his attempted wussy cheap shot on luck...even phil simms seemed to think arrington made it obvious.

If we're talking about the same play, then I disagree about deserving the fine. Yes it was a stupid play and it drew a penalty, which was justified. However, imo it was not worthy of a fine. In the replay it looked very clear that he did everything he could to avoid contact to Luck's head, and it looked more like shoulder to shoulder to me. There was certainly no intent to injure or anything like that. It was a dumb play and against the rules, since Luck had given himself up with the slide and therefore deserved the penalty. A fine for that play though is over the top and unnecessary, in my opinion.

Just said six players but he did say he thinks Mayo's fine is coming which would lead me to think that these were six players outside of the Pats game. They wouldn't announce fines for everyone but one guy. There was a story on espn.com on Sunday morning about Arians saying he was tired of the cheap shots on Luck so it's to me like the league looked into it and agreed with him and went back and issued these fines after that.

We should put Green on returns. Anything would be an upgrade at this point.

I'm sure the Coaching Staff noticed all the Blunders on ST this week. Some changes may be made, or maybe they won't

I agree the return game has been subpar but really Sunday was the first time all year that the coverage units had problems so I would be careful about over correcting those in response to one game.

he did very little to avoid it imo. 1.once he goes int slide mode it's over 2) it's not just the head, it's the whole neck head area

when it comes to qb's and defenseless receivers the guys have to be way more careful...and obviously they're not getting the message. that was just so easy to avoid.

I think it is more cumulative. The kid has been getting more calls than some vets.

I highly doubt that a coach could make a comment and the NFL goes back to issue fines. I would say the 6 would precede anything from the Patriots game, so Mayo is likely # 7.

There haven't been many hits that haven't been called, so Arians must be griping about the contact in general, and there have been some that have been somewhat questionable but the refs are erring on the side of the qb/caution

Calls = fines..

I agree 100% FJC with your claim my friend. I just wish that more NFL zebras would call more fines on offensive players who commit penalties against defensive players myself. Often times, the offense gets way to pampered for my tastes. Do these offensive players want milk, cookies, and a bedtime story too?

I'm not mad at you FJC just glaring NFL double standards that I see almost every game. LB's, DE's, & DT's have to make a living and feed their families too.

it's because for the last 20 or so years defensive players started targeting the head. the nfl always had some players that did that, but imo, it had gotten out of hand. you had sub 200lb corners head hunting.

but i agree to an extent...the nfl should do more when it comes to cut blocking by offensive linemen.

My comment is more about the refs on the field than Merton Hanks. Some of the "flags" have been questionable, and I have seen some vets hit far worse and not even have a flag thrown.

So the flags on the field lead to the fines that come with them.

well, we disagree....and hanks isn't bound to fine because of a flag.

Obviously.

Of course, that disagreement could easily be based on the amount of football watched each week. I've just seen Luck get calls that others haven't.

No he isn't, but there are more cases that fines come from penalties that were flagged than than those caused by plays that go unflagged.

I agree with your premise BloodontheTRACKS,but if they are defensive players are restricted from head hunting, they start targeting the knees & lower body of offensive players next. Equally as bad or worse if you ask me. I have no solution here, but if a players head is targeted, you might actually see it coming before the collision occurs at least...The body can brace itself for impact.

I don't agree with the fines that are brought against contact with any QB.

Most things I see now are pretty harmless hits to the QB, relatively.

With concussions the NFL is just trying to protect themselves from more lawsuits.

And depending on what player it is like a pro bowl caliber player getting fined 25 grand, that is chump change for the player.

Mostly just a waste of time, and the refs shouldn't be so flag happy for any kind of hit to the QB.

Like Joker has said many times, & he is exactly right, Roger Goodell & the NFL are using all this talk about play safety/new helmet design research etc. seems meant to distract the public & prevent NFL players from filing class action lawsuits against the league for sustained memory loss issues as a result of concussion problems. Safety vs profit & profit wins hands down every single time. Just my 2 :2c: anyway.

I guess you could make the counter argument that all players know the risks involved & they are well compensated for their on the field occupational contributions I guess. It's like smokers. Light up as often as you want, but don't cry me a river & expect people to save your caboose from a painful demise once you contract lung or throat cancer right? Point taken...

i don't agree with that at all. lowering the head or moving it to the side a couple inches is not a big deal when the offensive player is in a defenseless position....and that is the only time they are protected. even ted brushi, a hard nose player in his day, said the same thing on espn radio today. i know a lot of defensive players will rant and rave, but they will adjust and the game will be fine. i remember when players acted like it was impossible for a pass rusher to pull up under 3-4 steps....now they magically do it fine.

I always laugh when I hear someone say "Can you imagine what the NFL & the zebras would do if Deacon Jones played today with his headslap technique?" haha

Referees would throw their shoulders out tossing yellow flags. Deacon Jones, by today's standards, would be expelled & exiled from the NFL.

    • Peyton Manning was nearly a titan in 2012
      And he would've gotten smacked twice a year by Luck. His record against us was what like , 1-4 with a stacked Broncos team? He wouldn't have faired any better on a depleted Titans team.
    • Ravens to receive discipline for using pads in Rookie camp
      Which is sad considering it tramples all over the CBA, which clearly states the number of padded practices a team can have and when they can have them. Coach should've gotten a 2 game suspension.
    • Sign WR James Jones - It makes too much sense.
      Beyond TY Hilton and Donte Moncrief, the Colts have very little experience at the WR position. Dorsett has a lot of upside, but only played about half the year last year due to the broken leg. Bray was pretty much exclusively used as a returner. The draft is over, and the FA market is pretty much bare - Except for one guy. James Jones.   Yeah, he's 32 years old. But he brings a ton of experience, and he's familiar with coach Joe Philbin. He probably wouldn't be able to demand any more than roughly $6 million over a 2 year deal, which is something we can certainly afford to shore up our passing offense. He's a guy that is willing and able to block, and at 6'1" he would be one of our biggest bodied receivers when we need a "possession" catch on 3rd and 4 or a guy to high point the ball in the red-zone.   Look at the production Jones has put up over the last 4 years, and tell me why this guy is still on the FA market.             Games Starts Catches Yards Avg Long TD       FUM Lost 2015 Green Bay Packers 16 15 50 890 17.8 65T 8 -- -- --     1 0   2014 Oakland Raiders 16 10 73 666 9.1 42 6 -- -- --     3 1   2013 Green Bay Packers 14 14 59 817 13.8 83T 3 -- --       2 1   2012 Green Bay Packers 16 16 64 784 12.3 49 14
      He lead the Packers with nearly 900 yards and 8 TDs last year. Add him to the Colts, and he can come right in and compete with Moncrief and Dorsett for snaps. He can give different looks, and give us a legitimate 4-Wide set. He can step in at the Slot, and allow the Colts to possibly move Dorsett to RB on 3rd downs. The coaches have spoken about possibly using Dorsett more out of the backfield, in kind of a HB Screen role or catching passes in the flats because we have no one else in our RB group that really excels as a pass catcher. Adding James Jones allows Dorsett to focus more on that role, without leaving us vulnerable and down a starting WR in the passing game. I don't and wouldn't expect Jones to put up 800-900 yards in our offense...we have some talented guys we are trying to develop, but James Jones can surely contribute to our offense and provide a "coach on the field" to our younger players.

      Should the Colts be signing James Jones today? Tomorrow? Or does it simply make too much sense?

    • Member Introductions! (Say Hi!)
      Hello my Name is Robin. And i'm from Denmark. even though i've been member on this forum for a long time, and the old one as well. I would like to Introduce myself. I became a Colts fan in 2007, when I watched my first NFL game. My brother introduced me to NFL, the superbowl between Colts & Bears, And as we all know the Bears scored first, so I had to rude for the "underdogs".. and from that day on I was hooked. I've watched every game since, even the primetime games, that starts 2:30 in Denmark, it's a long day working with no sleep but damn its worth it. Can't wait for my next big Colts adventure, when I get to see them playing in London 
    • Member Introductions! (Say Hi!)
      I have been a fan since 1984 when I became an early teen and really started to understand the game. Colts moved to Indianapolis in 1984 and eventhough we stunk for a while, things obviously got better. We traded for Dickerson in 1987 and won the Division, then we had Harbaugh's magical season in 1995, the Peyton ERA where winning 12 games was a piece of cake + winning a SB in 2006, now the Andrew ERA where we have already had 3 11 win seasons and a deep Playoff run.
