  1. I think the National Media is scared, scared to admit that Philly just ran a Franchise QB out of town all while firing the head coach that "supposedly" didn't even speak with his QB for the majority of the season! Seems like the disconnect starts at the top to me.....but this article is straight hot garbage! Funny thing is Donovan McNabb was a fairly successful QB in Philly and they booed him starting on draft day thru the end of his career! LOL "Though head coach Frank Reich is confident he and staff can get Wentz back to form, USA TODAY’s Mike Jones is less bullish on the situat

  2. Such a weird deal. We're gonna pay him $9.4m to rehab his Achilles, and there's a strong chance he won't even play for us. Of course, the team and doctors know where he is. And maybe the deal is structured in a way that we're not on the hook if he can't go. But still... I'm on the fence on this one. Would have gone with a more reliable option.

  4. Soooo Ballard once again told us exactly what he was going to do or not do and why but people ignored it because it’s not what they wanted?

  5. I love the signing for the obvious potential he brings but...anytime I see a timeline with the Colts and an injury I cringe. Based on the Colts saying mid-September Im expecting him game 5 of 2027

  7. From Fisher's Instagram “Let’s get after it Indy! Excited to announce that I am a Colt!! Super pumped for this opportunity to bounce back and have a great season with an incredible organization. Thank you to the Irsay family, Chris Ballard, and Coach Reich for believing in me to get the job done. Can’t wait to get to work and win BIG!”

  8. Found an informative podcast with Dr Robert Anderson about his achilles technique: - Visited Europe and saw their doctors were using a mini incision - Took this approach back to the US approx 10 years ago - Uses a very small incision 1/2 inch horizontal incision vs 4-6 inch vertical incision - Saves blood supply to the tendon and minimizes damage to surrounding tissue - Speeds up recovery - After 12 weeks patients cut loose and work aggressively in rehab - Average return is 6 months for recreational activity; Elite athlete requires more time - Rehab proc

  9. As I take a step back and look what the Colts GM has done, I'm quite impressed. He took the two biggest areas of need, and took multiple shots at them. Perhaps not the exact shots some fans would have taken, but still, it was addressed....and certainly not ignored. To note?...a lot of complaining and hand wringing about not addressing the LT position, was simply emotional, and impatient. How many times must this be shown to fans? FA period does not end when the popular girls have all been asked to the dance. Ballard has assembled a lot of experience at the LT position

  15. LOL. I'm not a true MD, nor DO (and not a PhD either) But I sometimes play one on teh interwebs- (j/k!!) This picture was of me taken 5 years pre Covid-19 in the control room of a hybrid operating room suite (which had advanced X-Ray imaging equipment permanently installed) before a case. I do not recall the city or state. I retired 3 years later on 12/31/2018. Before retirement, I worked for a Major International medical imaging device company for over 25 years as a Zone / Senior Clinical Education and Support Specialist in Image Guided Therap

  16. ESPN Live - Positive update regarding Fisher injury: - Stephania Bell said 6 to 9 month recovery - Main reason his surgery was done by Dr Robert Anderson - pioneered a new achilles surgical technique that uses a smaller incision that has less risk of infection and speedier recovery.

  19. What difference does it make what they expect? What actually happens is what matters. And Fisher playing in 2021 is very much up in the air. For him to play by the end of September would make him a major outlier.

  20. Here he breaks down the Colts D swarming to the ball against Green Bay last season. One of my favorite plays of the season! Baldy implies the swarming style is all about Gannon, who went to Philly. We'll see! And here he breaks down All Pro's Leonard and Buckner against a double-team. What a beast! I can't wait for the '21 season to start!

  21. They cut him because they literally couldn't afford him. They didn't have the cap space to sign their draft picks, so they cut Leno and are banking on Jenkins to start this year. Ryan Pace is also not a good GM, so him making questionable personnel decisions is pretty well established. That's like saying there must have been something wrong with DeAndre Hopkins because the Texans traded him for beans. Sometimes teams are run poorly, make bad decisions, and force themselves into making other bad decisions because of their prior bad decisions. Leno played really well last season, esp

  22. Sorry... but I can’t even tell what the issue here is? I’ve never read anything about this before so I don’t know what a “negated bye week” actually is. What I did notice was the three teams who have had this happen to them 4 times are major teams or major markets or both... Seattle, the NY Jets and New England. And Houston is the 4th largest city in the country. So I don’t detect a bias. if someone could kindly explain a negated bye week, that would be great. Is it, we have to go on the road the week after the bye week? Is that it?

  25. I believe Okereke and Willis was out too. We were missing like 6 or 7 starters. I think smith missed that game too with a hand injury.

  27. Look at the bright side. Fisher actually plays the position we're paying him for. Could of been in a situation where we need to convert a 33 year old QB/Baseball Player to TE.....

  28. Let me get this straight, 9 mil is too much for a pro bowl LT at a spot of need? Yes I understand healing, return to for etc but come on half a year of play would be market share at that price. We had a player making way more than that last year who played like 5 snaps. Also if he would have signed with another team for that the same would have said Ballard too cheap to make that happen. If all works out we can sign to additional years and he grows comfortable with this team win win situation.

  29. Colts have a lot of depth and experience on the line this year. Ballard’s offseason on both sides of the lines has been really good when you consider adding Dayo and Paye.

  30. That is SO TRUE!!! Unfortunately for me I lost my momma in 2012. I still don't picture her as gone as I daydream she's still with me. I just recently recovered a video of her singing "little things mean a lot". It was adorable and priceless to me.

  33. I know a lot of us that follow the draft were following the tea leaves on big, athletic, fast wide receivers and a lot of focus was on Terrance Marshall in the 1st or 2nd and Nico Collins in the 3rd or 4th. Instead they went with the athletic freak in Strachan at 6'5" & 226 lbs with 4.42 speed - aka similar to DK Metcalf (whom we all wanted a couple years ago). Plus picked up two really solid options as UDFA's in Vaughn and Black. Let's face it, this is likely the last year for Hilton (retire) and Pascal (long term deal elsewhere). Which brings me to these questions

  38. With so many in this thread screaming noooooo to Tevi playing at all, perhaps this would be a good time to insert this factoid here.... Last season, 2020, Sam Tevi started over 1,000 snaps for the Chargers and gave up the following.... *** 2 sacks *** 4 penalties That's it. 2 sacks, 4 penalties. Yes, yes, I know all about his pff score. It’s practically wall papered to this website now. Just saying, playing with much better teammates and much better coaching, it’s not unreasonable to think Tevi might play better for the Colts than for the Charger

  39. I think this all goes without saying. The team and their medical people are aware of the details, and that influences their level of confidence in this decision. I'm just a guy on the Internet. But I stated my opinion on Fisher and Dayo last week. The research says it's an 11 month recovery, on average. Outliers are 9 months. For Fisher to play in September, he'd be an outlier. No one bets on outliers without acknowledging the risk they're taking. If Fisher's recovery is typical, he probably won't play until December. And if he has a setback, he might not play this season at all.

  40. I get too optimistic at times so take my comments with a grain of salt but don't you think it is more likely that they've reviewed his specific injury, see that he is ahead of schedule, and going to be able to play this year and that is why they signed him than he fits the general studies/reports that you are relying on. I know you are defending your position and it is logically sound but you don't have the information on this specific injury or his recovery while they do. I just dont see ballard signing someone to 9.84 when he doesn't think there is a strong chance they play for

  41. Sooooo close lol....$9.4 compared to a projected $8M-$9M Anyhow this always made the most sense for Fisher. Get paid close to market value based on his injury. If fully healthy he would have been at least a $12M-$13M player if not more. So he basically takes around a 25% discount based on his injury....which if he were going to miss 4 or so games would fall right in line w his going rate. He avoids a longer term deal where if he is healthy he can then cash in again. We avoid a longer term deal that might have required greater future i

  43. Do you really think Ballard is going to sign him if they didn’t expect him to play all season. Hopefully he doesn’t miss much time. Rappaport just said they are comfortable where he is in the rehab process.

  46. Wow, what a pair of individuals. A mother doing whatever it takes to provide an opportunity for her son(s), and a son taking that opportunity and turning it into something special. Unbelievable strength of character. It's so easy to root for this team when they fill it with guys and families like this.
