Jeff Saturday benched

51 posts in this topic

Look, I just want to hear from 2 people in 2 separate rooms: Why was Jeff removed from 1st string center to 2nd string? Not the GM, not the HC, not the PR guy...

 

Just Jeff & Aaron in different rooms with no ESPN cameras...

There is no concrete proof to illustrate that both Grigson or Owner Irsay viewed Jeff Saturday as physically damaged goods. I'm sorry dw49, but that is pure speculation on your part. Until you get deliberate confirmation on that fact, I wouldn't run with that statement at all.

 

Jeff deserves the benefit of the doubt. Yes, players usually retire from the game as a result of the body breaking down or mental preparation weariness etc. etc. Just try not to sabotage Saturday's NFL career without confirmation please thank you. That's all I ask dw49. 

 

 

 

 at the risk of "sabotaging Jeff Saturday's career" , I'm going to view the fact that Irsay offered Saturday a desk job as "evidence" that the thinking in Indy was that Saturday could no longer get the job done. This is no disgrace to Saturday as every player reaches the age where he just doesn't have enough game left. At 37 , it is not unusual to hit this plateau in the NFL. If you want to say that I have no proof of this , I would say that I don't but it certainly appeared that Indy had no desire to keep him despite the O line being terrible. If that's "pure speculation " then I'm guilty as charged.

My question is why didn't they do that earlier than the last 2 games of the season and if they worked him out before signing him why did they sign him? :dunno:
Maybe the kid that's getting the start had been showing the coaches what they wanted to see in practice (that sounds like the kind of answer that a coach would give)

Why Now?

 

Packer fan's are saying that it's injury related.

 

Hopefully that is the reason

They should put Jeff back in there and make Aaron use shorter passes.  Making that O Line look bad and not using the playbook to benefit their skills.   :bag:

 

**No matter the reason Jeff, thank you, very much, for the whole body of work you put in with the Colts.**

Hope that it is not the end for him either. As hope he has some good years left in and with him!

I wouldn't say you were wrong dw49. I'm just not prepared to throw in the towel yet on #63 & call it a career at age 37. More an inclination on my part vs. you sir. I will readily admit that...The mind is willing, but the body refuses to cooperate I guess...No one's NFL tenure lasts forever. Eventually, we will all be a distant memory & called upon to "roll me away" as Bob Seger would say...

    • No, not at all. Injuries are the only thing they do report fast.    Last year and the year before that and the year before that they would tweet out updates anytime a play was made, they would tweet out anytime a player looks good or bad, and nearly everytime you'd refresh the browser there would be plenty of updates. This year? They take 20 to 30 minutes to tweet any updates. And when they do tweet its something vague. 
    • Why?  Because they did not tell you Langford's status in the half second after it happened?    
    • Thank you.  My favorite thing about the interview was : " Hope so, hope so. But that’s definitely been a point of focus for me this offseason, just getting better at rushing the passer, because it was almost embarrassing for me last year — at least coming from college, where whenever I worked one of my moves, I kind of expected to beat the guy. In the league, I guess you kind of have to accept that the dudes across from you are getting paid quite a bit, too. You’re not going to win every single time, so that’s definitely been a focal point for me, working on that this offseason for sure. "  
    • Baltimore should Thank Charles Dickens for the name of there football team as well as Cleveland for there team simply put the team & name come from outside Baltimore . They celebrate a team & name whose origins are from elsewhere while trying to tell Indianapolis Colts fans how Colts history & a Lombardi belong to there city .    “You will be greatly shocked and grieved,” Charles Dickens wrote to a friend in 1841, “to hear that the Raven is no more!” His pet raven, Grip, had died. At the behest of his children, Dickens wrote poor Grip in his most recent book, Barnaby Rudge, maintaining in its pages Grip’s name and his loquacious powers of imitating human speech. In 1842, Edgar Allan Poe shook hands with Charles Dickens in Philadelphia, and spoke about Barnaby Rudge, which Poe had recently reviewed with the criticism that Dickens should have given the raven a prophetic presence in the story. In 1845, a prophetic raven was penned into existence, this time by the American author. The creation spawned reproach itself, as some judged Mr. Poe as lying in the shadow of Mr. Dickens, as may be derived from James R. Lowell’s journalistic jingle: Here comes Poe with his raven, like Barnaby Rudge,
      Three-fifths of him genius and two-fifths sheer fudge. 170 years later, however, nearly everyone knows Poe’s raven, and nearly no one knows Dickens’—or even Barnaby Rudge’s, for that matter. Grip the raven is forgotten; another raven holds the world in its grip: the raven named Nevermore. As Poe purposefully reincarnated Dickens’ merry raven into his macabre ravings, so too do people purposefully reincarnate the relentless madness of Poe’s raven into their own ravings—making them beautiful in their terror. Your welcome for the history lesson interesting as it might be , Baltimore of old & new was made by others in other cities & enjoyed by many who created nothing much without the help of others so that Baltimore could call it its own , history evolves those who fail to study it do not .

He very likely is either asking to much or teams think he will ask to much after he signs a minimal contract after it expires. Plus there are not many teams with much money actually. Some are over the cap even
