    I agree. As long as it was just spot duty, I agree JB should be the back up to get us through a short term Rivers injury. If however Rivers went down for the season early, I'd prefer to see what the young guys have to offer for the future.

    Yeah if rivers has a long term injury get the young guys experience. We have a good team they might surprise everyone. 


  2. The great thing about Campbell is he doesn’t need a lot of touches to effect the game. He has the ability to break one with every touch. I am excited to watch him. We will see him be a lot of what Debo Samual is for SF. He can be used in so many ways. If this offense stays healthy we are going to be very good. TY was back on the field yesterday too. Hopefully Campbell and Pittman our the colts one and two for years to come.

    No....  when Reich said Jacoby was ahead of Eason you said...   “who knows if that’s true or not?”      As if Reich had some reason to lie about it.   You’ve been talking in circles ever since. 

    I don’t know what your talking about. Reich has never mentioned that about Jacoby except draft day and how he will be number two. I said when Reich said last week that Jacoby had improved I said who knows. I wasn’t saying Reich was lying. All I meant is Reich always says positive things. Reich never said anything comparing Jacoby and Eason.

    So Reich is lying when he says things you don’t like or agree with, but he’s telling the truth when he does something you like or agree with. 
     

    Got it. 

    I never said he was lying. I said Reich is a optimist so don’t expect anything but positive stuff from him. The colts actions speak volumes of what they think of Jacobys upside.

    Actually he's missing the point slightly . . . you risk them being picked up on waivers.  We cut Easton any team that had interest in him before the draft could pick him up on waivers.  A lot of teams had interest in him.  This is a 4th round pick not a 7th.

     

    Kelly could potentially clear waivers.  Easton is almost certain to be picked up on waivers.  

    This is my point.  There is no guarantee he would stay here. He may end up on the PS. I just think it’s a small chance. With covid we can afford to keep him on the 53 with the new PS rules. It really just depends how he looks in practice. If he looks average maybe they put him there. If he looks fantastic they probably keep him on the 53.

    Safety First, be it on the field or off the field. Contrary to the Pro's the risk is very high for the college players. There is no insurance and permanent damage can result from catching the virus. Honestly, I think each player's decision will be highly influenced by their parents, family, friends and home physician. I am surprised that the conferences have not canvassed each player and their family regarding playing this year, and publish their findings. I think the student body, the fans and sportscasters should know.

    Parents of Ohio state players have sent a letter saying they want their kids to play. Players are all over twitter saying they want to play. Coaches are saying they want to play. Give them a option to opt out. The head of the big ten has a son playing in the SEC. Imagine his fun playing while he cancels the big ten. It’s all outrageous and no one is following the science.

  7. Looks like the big ten may be the only one to cancel. The NCAA nut grant them waivers to let them play immediately for another team. Spring football does not work. There are going to be so many guys that opt out for the draft. IF teams like the ACC and SEC still play that puts them at a advantage in the draft. Not to mention this is going to bankrupt programs and put them behind for years.  I don’t care about how the colts handle it. I care about these players and the careers they are messing with. The nfl is going to have to change some things and add to the combine. Also some nfl games may be moved to Saturday.


  8. I see the players want to play and the coaches are now speaking out also. I feel bad for the kids. Like Trevor said in his tweets a lot of these kids football is their safe haven. The guys like Lawrence will be fine. But it still could cost a lot of them money if they can’t play and go right to the draft. Guys like Justin fields could lose a lot of draft position. This really is not fair to them. Looks like some governors are putting pressure on them to cancel while red state govs want them to play. This is going to affect hundreds of kids futures. Your going to ask them to play spring football then turn around and ask them to play fall football a few months later. For players that go right to the draft it could cost them draft position and money.

    Why would you say “who knows if it’s true”? 
     

    Why would Reich lie?   What’s in it for him?
     

    And why would this be hard to believe?   It’s the third year in the system for JB, so he has a huge head start over Eason.  Wouldn’t you expect the veteran to be ahead of the rookie in learning and understanding the system?  Does that seem unreasonable?   It takes most rookies a long time to pick up their first NFL system.

     

    Remember...    even the great Patrick Mahomes sat out almost his entire rookie season.   He played one game.   Even Lamar Jackson didn’t play much as a rookie and even when he did they prepared a small limited number of plays for him and that’s all he was allowed to do.   That’s the way it is for MOST rookies.  
     

    Guys like Andrew Luck are the exception to the rule. 

    Reich is a optimist. He always puts a good spin on things no matter what.


  10. The 2021 draft is going to be such a mess with college conferences cancelling seasons. Some are moving seasons to spring then going to expect them to play again in the fall. How many will opt out of the spring session and only play fall. What about guys who red one more year removed from HS to be eligible fir the draft. Will it force guys like Trevor Lawrence to stay in school a extra year. I am not sure how a draft will even be able to ge done in 2021. A lot of players are going to be losing a lot of money if they opt out and enter the draft.

    Tell opting out kind of hurts team wise.....I also think what you're seeing, with some exceptions of course, are lots of fringe roster players opting out...taking some guaranteed money and staying around for at least this year and taking their chances next year. 

    For the most part you are correct here. Tell would of made the team so kind of surprising. But we don’t know his circumstances.

  12. If he decides to come back I am all for keeping rivers around the next couple of Years and  trade Luck for some number one picks and go get a QB. I don’t think I would want him back. Very awkward that would  be with rivers. Just trade Luck and use those picks to find the future.

    It's easy to say that when in reality nothing has really started yet. 

    Just the sheer amount of personnel that not only includes the players you have all the other people involved. 

     I am trying to stay positive but I have a feeling there is going to be a problem before the actual start of the season and will get worse as the season goes along. 

    Remember that these all aren’t positive cases. Some are just because they were exposed. Seems the nfl is also taking into account the possibility of false tests which I think is good. Another reason players may come off quick. The good thing is no one will be playing or allowed in the building with a positive test or with symptoms before a positive test. As much as they are testing I am hopeful it won’t spread. That entire Marlins thing was because players were going to bars and nightclubs. NFL has put fines in place which is a good deterant.  The fact we still have teams with no cases is good. Jags did add some today including Minshew and the eagles head coach got a positive test. It’s all going to be up to the players to be responsible. If they aren’t it could go down hill fast.


  14. I think so far it’s been pretty good. Glad to see no colt veterans are on the list. Also read a tweet some players come off pretty quick. They were exposed so once they get a couple negative tests they can come back. It’s all going to be up to the players not to do anything stupid. MLB seems to have no control at all.


  15. Another day with no colts on the covid list. Mathew Stafford was added. Looks like only two players in the league added. Not counting the opt out. Nfl seems to be doing well. The players seemed to be taking this much more serious then the MLB. Players going to strip clubs was bound to have that happen.
