How Big Of An Impact Does The Conditioning Coach Have?


WSO

Recommended Posts

I've read that a lot of the injuries could be attributed to the conditioning coach not doing his job. I don't know a lot about these "smaller role" (i dont know what else to call it) coaches but do you think its the root of the injury problem? I've always thought it was just because the Colts were undersized on defense but the Colts have had some offensive injury problems too

Honestly, it might be a factor but no one can really say. Injuries happen, sure there are things a coach can do to minimize that chances of injuries happening but who's to say the conditioning coach hasn't done those things and out guys just keep getting hurt? No one can say for sure.

I'd have to agree.

Its a factor yes, but there is no ONE factor. It would have to be done on a case to case basis. A Collie concussion cant be attributed to the SC Coach, but an Addai hammy pull could be. Also, you'd have to factor in the player themself, and in the Colts case he is almost always undersized, which certainly doesn't help the situation.

    • Here’s my thought on the players and possibilities with the 15th pick:   If the following players are available, we stick and pick at 15 or maybe trade 3-5 spots up: -Brock Bowers -Quinyon Mitchell -Dallas Turner   If the above are gone, we trade down and take one of the following: -Brian Thomas, Jr. -Cooper DeJean -Xavier Worthy -Jared Verse/Laitu Latu   Striking distance is 3-5 picks IMO and the compensation has to be future draft capital I would think. I wonder if it is really Quinyon, who is it that they feel they need to get ahead of?  
    • Looked good tonight    Defense.playes really good ball in that 2nd half.     Carlisle tightened up the rotation running Toppin at the 5.     Pascal is just in beast mode.   Haliburton played better, but an still play better.     1-1 Pacers, the series has officially started.
    • The only reason why I wouldn’t want to trade up and give up a 1st next year for whatever scenario there is, is because we are 1 AR injury away again from having a top pick next year. Yeah we Flacco but we still won’t do anything with him and our 1st will be high enough to make me question on giving it up next year. I don’t trust AR yet staying healthy 
    • I don't think his history has negatively impacted the team, so I can't give you any examples. I said the players love him and only say good things.   Yes, the media still mentions Jim being a reason people don't want to come here. Cowherd said it a few months back and I watched an ESPN clip during free agency where someone said it there too. I disagree with them, but yes, they still say it.
    • Actually, I think the Colts would have him rated higher as a safety than a corner. He is a typical zone corner, any those start coming off the board in the 2nd. He is probably seen as the highest rated safety even though he played mostly of career as a corner. It isca weak safety drafted, so he could come off the board in the 1st.
