Has anyone else noticed that Mr Irsay seems to have a back problem? The last few times I have seen video of him and again at the press confernece yesterday, he seems to be bent over. Can anyone shed some information on this?

He had several orthopedic problems and surgeries in the past which lead him to becoming addicted to prescription pain killers. He no longer takes the pain meds, so that's probably why he is in pain

He looked bad next to Chuck, hope whatever it is it's temporary.

I've noticed he doesn't seem to have the best posture as well... Hard to say what it could be

Also looks like he's lost weight. He was swimming in his suit at the presser.

Hey TK everyone over 18 is considered old to you. :funny:  I'm getting older too but I'm not bent over like Mr Irsay. :)  Age is just a number in my opinion. :thmup:

I really can't think of too many things that could sound more crummy. So what if he is not a player, he is a fellow human being. The man looks to be in serious distress and you couldn't care less. These coaches and these players care about Mr Irsay, you would think a Colts fan would too.

Irsay was on drugs for a bit and had to get off of them because of the addiction. It's a horrible thing I'm sure to be addicted to meds. He is clean now and will be gimpy like that on and off. Mainly off because of his back doctor and things like that. He suffered some injuries at SMU like all football players do. An example of someone who is pain free right now and is doing the hardcore exercise video series is Mike Golic. He was a trenches player and he's ok now. Jimmy just needs to rest his back but with CHUCK being ill is has been hard for him to do so.

The man is a giver. I hope he is doing ok.

I think it is a case of Irsay just getting older.

 

I think that is part of the reason that he is starting to let his kids become a bigger part of the organization.

It is due to all his bending over backwards trying to make this franchise great.

Hopefully Jim can get some recuperation with limited meds. Also, Mark Schlereth is another who lived in the trenches and appears to be in exceptional condition right now. OTOH, we don't truly know if even Mike and Mark don't have some type of lingering issue as well that they manage extremely well. It was and continues to be a violent sport.  I always hope for the best for all players, active and retired.  Yes, they received(d) a lot of compensation, but permanent injury of some type is a high price to give back for doing or having done your job.

Like I said on post # 8 age has nothing to do with being bent over. It may be a lingering back issue and anyone can have back problems but stress over Pagano's health issues could cause him more problems with his back. Stress and worry can cause health problems to become worse. JMO of course. It's hard to control any health problems when you choose not to take meds for any reason. Hope now that Pagano is in remission he can get his own health under control also.  I hope you get to feeling  better Mr Irsay.  :)

Well I won't argue with you about health things because I honestly have no idea.

 

I hope he feels better as well, along with Pagano because these guys need to stick together to see Luck dominate this decade.

    I don't know how many roundabouts there are in Carmel, but I think I went through at least 20 of them today . . . which brought back memories of how hard it was for me to enter jump roping without tripping or being whacked in the head.
