Some random thoughts


Recommended Posts

Fwiw, I'm inclined to write off the Bears game as early season jitters. The Colts have had the lead late into the 4th quarter in the other 3 games.

I'm already inclined to trust Luck in crunch time more that all but a couple other QBs in the entire league. I believe he has directed a TD drive inside of 2 minutes to play in each of the last 3 games... And add to that his play to close out first halfs.

Take away 1 poorly covered play at the end of the Jags game, and this team is a SHOCKING 3-1... and sitting with the 3rd best record in the AFC... (I know, if ifs and buts were candy and nuts...)

IMO, this team will continue to grow and improve this year, as the O line hopefully gels, as the rookies get their legs, and as chemistry develops team wide. I'm not sure I'd want to be a playoff hopeful team with the Colts on my schedule late in the year. Then again, other than Houston and the Pats, the Colts' schedule suddenly looks much less scary than it did before the start of the season.

were all riding high from the big win, and I believe the team will grow immensely from a win like this one. Only time will tell where this team is headed this year. From what ive seen so far this year, the sky is the limit in the future. Once we clear up the cap room and get depth at all positions, we will be hard to deal with in the near future

I asked on chat who ppl thought we would lose to the rest of the season. Cuz like you the only tough games i see left are pats and houston. I say we take one from houston and possibly lose to the lions. That would make us 11-5. Me makin that statement darn near got me laughed right out of the chatroom. Its nice to see the optimism around this place

Just before the season I said, that this team would have disappointing losses and astonishing wins. I think yesterday we had an astonishing game, and I hope there would be some others...

As far as I see, the team keeps developing.

Now it is time to show up on road games. That's an other lesson to learn.

    • His breakout game came against the Eagles mid way through his rookie season.  Indy was a big underdog that day and killed the Eagles in Philly. 
    • For those that didn't see it, here's the exclusionary flow chart of the surgeries from 1958 - 2016       I count two studies (one with 95 cases, the other with 80, one of which Dr.Parekh was involved in) having a nearly identical average of a 72.5% return to sport rate-   "One previous study investigated RTS and postoperative performance for players who underwent Achilles tendon repair in the NFL. The prior study demonstrated an RTS of 72.5% in 80 NFL athletes. The RTS from this prior study is nearly identical to the results of the present study with an RTS of 72.4% in 95 NFL athletes." "Following Achilles tendon repair, less than 75% of players returned to the NFL. Postoperative career length was 1 season shorter than matched controls. No difference was observed in the number of games per season played com-pared to matched controls. Postoperative performance scores were significantly worse for RBs and LBs compared to preoperative, and LBs had significantly worse postoperative performance when compared to matched controls."   and the very small PARS mini open study at 78%.   I see a trend of some surgeons trying to move from open technique to a limited or mini-open technique (as opposed to a pure percutaneous repair).   Dr. Purekh:   “but the problem with a pure percutaneous solution is that you can’t see anything, so you can actually pierce the nerve.” The miniature-open technique requires only a 3 cm incision while the traditional approach of surgically treating Achilles tendon ruptures required an 8 cm to 12 cm incision. “One of the biggest issues with the traditional model was long-term immobilization, and there was about an 8% to 10% chance of an infection or wound healing problem,” he notes. “The benefit of doing the mini-open technique is that your incisions are much smaller, so your wound complication rate postoperatively is under 1% or 0.5%."   This minimally invasive miniature-open technique is heavily dependent on special tools (PARS Achilles Jig System by Anthrex, Inc.: Naples, FL; Achillon Achilles Tendon Suture System by Integra LifeSciences Corp.: Plainsboro, NJ), and can add in costs up to $800 to 1,000 per use.   Dr. Selene G. Parekh, of Duke University, has pioneered a minimally invasive mini-open technique that does not use specialized equipment, and has adapted the miniature-open technique to require only standard operating room tools, such as surgical clamps and forceps, etc. to be able to grab the Achilles tendon and pass suture.   “You don't have to worry about a special instrument lining up properly in order to grab the tendon, so the whole procedure now takes about 20 to 30 minutes whereas traditionally it took 45 minutes to an hour,” he says.   While mini-open repair is available at Duke (and elsewhere), only Dr. Parekh is performing Achilles repair via this new technique without the need of special instruments.  I'm interested to see what types of improved outcomes become apparent besides the time and cost savings up front.      
    • What did I say?  What did I say?  Didn't I say it was bad luck to change your number?  And it's not like your already behind the eight ball, being from Ohio State.  OMG.  *facepalm*
    • I really like the Vaughn's  kid think he will be a Hakeem knicks type player who can catch in traffic
