  1. Great interview. And I always loved Bill Polian. Unfortunately, it doesn't cover the things that led up to his firing. Namely, the disastrous 2007 draft, #1 pick Anthony Gonzales being a bust, #2 pick Tony Ugoh not only being a bust, but also costing the #1 pick in the 2008 draft as well. The 2008 draft being utterly forgettable. The 2009 draft being, well, okay, but still lackluster. The 2010 draft being underwhelming. The 2011 draft being lean. Bill having his son, Chris, make the decisions was turning into horror show. Jim Irsay made the right call. It was time. Bill still ha

  2. Gil Brandt wrote a piece for NFL.com about 12 players whose teams should never let them leave to play for another team. https://www.nfl.com/news/twelve-players-whose-teams-should-never-let-them-leave Some obvious names like Patrick Mahomes, Aaron Donald, and Saquon Barkley. Steelers had two defenders in TJ Watt and Minkah Fitzpatrick. Colts had two players in Nelson and Leonard.

  3. Dang, after reading the piece, if Turay comes back strong... I could see 4 or 5 guys pushing to reach double digit sacks! Now wouldn't that be exciting.

  4. That is not entirely true. That law actually applies to ANYONE with access to a patients personal medical information or history. For example, I’m HIPPA certified. I’m not medical but I have to be for both the military and the civilian job, due to the potential personal information I may come across. Say one of the people on my team ha to miss work long term for a medical reason, they’d have to submit documentation up thru me, that’s why it’s required.

  5. I think they can say things like “A” player tested positive but they can’t say who that player is. Now if the season starts and guy is out because of COVID you are going to be able to figure out pretty quickly who it is when the injury report comes out because it will say “illness” and if that happens the same week they say someone has COVID it’s not going to be hard to put two and two together.

  6. Yea as posted above Mr Polian and his son had a disastrous run there that doesn't get talked about enough. Without Manning on the team we certainly looked like a team void of talent. I always believed we never sucked for luck we just really sucked without PM. Polian should have been fired years before.

  7. Potentially.. Elliot certainly wasn't happy at having his result shared. If we get into the season though, and players are missing time due to Covid, you'd assume it would get listed on the injury report as such.

  8. Give the kid a chance. Although it was an awkward interview, he did very well in face to face interviews and press conferences at USC. The university does not shield them from the L.A. fishbowl media market. They’re groomed for it from their sophomore year on. It says a lot about Mike, and overcoming a speech impediment, that he chose USC knowing the requirement is also to be active And participate in interviews and social media. Don’t let his quiet demeanor off the field fool you, watch his tape. Mike was a 5* recruit, on both sides of the ball. We had another very shy and sof

  11. Any information, verbal or written. So let’s say an employee comes to you and says they need to go home with the flu. You cannot release anything about it. Legally you can only say they went home. You can only describe details to another hippa Certified person IF that person is required to know. So HR to mark time cards right etc.

  12. I'm assuming a team would have players sign a HIPAA disclosure form with the Covid tests that would legally allow medical staff conducting the test to disclose the diagnosis to the organization. I'm not sure if that disclosure form would just limit disclosure of the diagnosis to the organization, to which they can't disclose the information any further or if there would have to be language that expressly spells out that the organization can make the information public.

  13. I've been watching him and Kiana since a little before the draft. That is exactly how he is in the vlogs lol. Just super calm and slower pace of speaking. I saw nothing out of the norm in this interview. I can't wait for #86!!

  14. Nice post, John.... Over the years @Superman has detailed what were, I think, Polian’s last 5 drafts. It’s a long list of not very much luck. Some players were nicked by injuries, but most appeared to be nicked by a basic lack of talent. They didn’t go elsewhere and succeed. As talented as Polian was/is, there was a downward trend.

  19. I don’t know if you were aware but he has a speech impediment. He has had trouble with stuttering. So sometimes it takes him awhile to get to his thoughts. Interviews I would imagine are very hard on him. We will just have to have patience when he does interviews.

  21. It was time for a change. Things had become stagnant at that point. And sad to say at the time Peyton’s injury was so serious there was a chance he was done for good. There were just too many unknowns back then. We can play the hindsight game and say we should have kept Peyton and traded the #1 pick. Irsay decided to draft and hire for the future, and create a new type of team. Unfortunately it didn’t work out as intended...

  24. I think a huge piece is Turay. He's got elite level pass rush skills from the tape I've watched of him and how he fit into the defense. Stay healthy and I think he could put up 8+ sacks.

  25. Okay, I got a little carried away, but 3 or 4 sacks by others could add up? My over/under for this season is Colts get 50+ sacks. Just got a good feeling!

  26. Buckner Houston Turay Leonard Who is number 5? If we have 2 that reach double digit sacks I would be happy.
    1 point
  27. Agreed. Nelson, Leonard, and I would argue Buckner now, are the heart of the team. I would keep them until the end of their careers. Luckily, we have a lot of average to above-average players to go with those 3 that this team is just loaded and will be for the forseeable future.

  30. I was one who wanted them to trade the Luck pick. As I recall, there were 2 teams willing to give essentially there entire draft for it. I think Cleveland was one. Kind of a Hershal Walker type trade. We could have built a very solid team for Manning the next few years. I kind of changed my mind once I seen Luck play in the NFL, but I'll admit what I hoped for at the time.

  32. He has a speech problem. He has had s stuttering issue his entire life. That’s why it takes time for him to get the words out. Get used to those kind of interviews with him. His speech issue isn’t going away.

  33. He's likable, but he sure seems stoned out of his mind. Repeating himself every sentence, sometimes 3-4 times. That was very uncomfortable to watch - his eye movement alone was very bizarre. He looked like Stevie Wonder most of the interview. I had a very good feeling about this guy until I saw this interview. Now I'm pretty concerned about his ability to mentally process the game as it unfolds before him. Perhaps it's just a speech/eye contact impediment. Perhaps it's drugs. I guess we'll see!

  37. yeah most of the players and coaches lost their jobs, they didnt do that on purpose so that grigson could draft luck and build a new team seems like Jim irsay knew BP was out at the end of the year but still wanted his input on luck lol

  38. What a likable kid. I will be pulling for his success. He’s so calm and “nice”, i hope he has a switch he flips come gametime. I would love to see an aggressive mean-streak to go with that bog body. Let him be roomates with Nelson for camp!

  40. Kinda harsh, no? Sure Mack has , at times, had minor-ish injuries hamper him, and the success Jordan Wilkins has had makes one wonder just how good Mack really is, along with the OL success. But i have to say, when Mack is on, which i think is “usually”, he has exceeded my expectations. A fourth round pick remember, so keep in mind a very different league than say a Taylor. But he has definitely helped this offense. A DEADLY stiffarm, and not afraid to stick it in the hole, even at 210 and a leaner build at 6’. I just love to watch the guy run. At times, i’ve sworn i’ve seen a kittl

  41. Good question, I did wonder about test results and HIPAA rules. Is it to promote awareness that players like Von Miller and Zeke Elliott and coaches like Sean Payton are coming out voluntarily with their results? While it is a medical obligation to report the results to the medical staff and coaches to keep those positive cases cordoned off and quarantined, other players that did not test positive will notice. A slip of the tongue is more than possible with the coaches and players, how does one manage that and how do the HIPAA rules apply to those?

  42. Yeah, he is more like a Courtland Sutton type of WR that cannot thrive without a speedy element on the opposite side but will come down with tough catches in 1-on-1 situations. He has a little bit of Anquan Boldin in him too, IMO.

  44. Yeah, Julio is not Brandin Cooks, who is not a jump ball guy that Goff kept throwing jump balls to vs Gilmore in the SB (glad I did not watch the SB and just watched the highlights). Julio's catch in the SB to set the Falcons up close to the 20 was an insane catch vs the Patriots, before the Falcons blew it.
