Gonzalez ?


Susie Q

Recommended Posts

I thought it was a groin injury, but I'm not sure. I wouldn't be upset to see him get released after this season.

Thanks I wasn't sure what was wrong with him this time and wondered if anyone else might know. I personally think this might be his last year as a colt. Not sure he's worthy of the roster spot. That's a shame because if he could stay healthy he could be a terrific player.

The reason he's not playing is because the receivers have not been injured once and he's a backup. He's missed some games early on in the year, but in the last month and a half he's been healthy, but not going on the field often.

I think a Packer's fan or press made some kind of comment regarding Jordy Nelson, that's it's surprising he's so talented and active because he's Caucasian. I think there is some truth to this. We don't seem to have much look with Caucasian WR's. Look at Pierre Garcon and Reggie Wayne. When was the last time they got injured? Meanwhile, we have Collie who gets knocked out not once, but twice, to concussions and Gonzalez who is unheard of.

Gonzalez has been a complete bust thus far. He's no good to us on the bench.

I don't think race has to do with it. Welker is white and he is leading the league in receptions and yards. Gonzo on the other hand has done nothing.

We have a QB playing who can't complete a pass to Wayne, or Collie, how the heck do you expect Gonzo to do anything when the QB play is trash

I'm just trying to figure out why his chemistry with Garcon is solid. Are they friends? Does the coaching staff go out of their way to get Garcon extra involved? Why do I get the feeling Wayne just lines up on the outside just as a distraction for Garcon?

From what I've heard about Wayne backing his man Painter up, then chemistry shouldn't be the issue - I think it comes down to bad QB play solely!

Does anyone have a clue what is wrong with Gonzalez? He is always DNP and never plays anymore.

What's up with him? The reason I'm asking is because I personally don't know and thought someone might. Thanks in advance for any answers to this question

With this team it is seemingly always the same names on the injury report every week, every year. It is simply time to shake this team up and get rid of a lot of "dead weight. "

Nothing about this team has been "solid" since the first half of the KC game. Since KC Indy has been outscored 164 to 44 in 5 games. This team has quit on Caldwell and as a result this is turning out to be one of the all time worst teams in the history of the NFL.

I'd say Welker's the exception to the rule. He's also questionable going into each week, not to mention the next thirty or so receivers on the list after him are black guys. Race DEFINITELY has something to do with it.

There are a couple of rumors but very little has been released by the Colts or Gonzo. Caldwell has said Gonzo has been healthy the past several weeks but will not say why he is not playing. Gonzo is also evasive in answering the question.

I dont understand why a healthy Gonzo has been on the field for only one play this year. You would think a number one draft choice would actually help the team (oops, forgot about Hughes...never mind). Yet another draft mistake by the front office.

Injuries happen to all players. And they are all different types of injuries too. Welker could be listed as questionable, but there could really be very little doubt that he will play the next game. He could also have an injury that isn't as significant and is one that he can play through. He may also be a quick healer compared to other guys. There are so many factors that could affect him being injury-prone. Bob Sanders is black and injury-prone, Gonzo is white and injury-prone. You can find injury-prone guys of all races and you can find guys who play through injuries of all races.

This whole race thing is shameful for anyone to even count viable. It doesn't matter your race. Just your frame and durability. It only takes one play to take out even the most durable. One spinal tap. One wrong landing. One helmet to helmet and your player is on the list.

Exactly. There are so many different factors that could affect it that I find it difficult to accept race as a reason for being injury-prone

hes been out a long time, but he needs to get some reps and get back into it, if you think about it, alot of things become understandable when you say the colts dont really care about this season, not losing on purpose, just not going the extra lengths to win. seems like it ever since peyton went on ir, they were like well screw it, lets save money, if we get injuries, let them heal, although addai coming back to soon was a bit stupid.

why dont they just run the ball every down, then they can really practice running the ball, cant do any harm!

    • I just thought I would take this opportunity to brag a bit about the fact that I had the opportunity to chat with Peyton at the Masters last week for about 5 minutes.  Truly a bucket list experience and I must say, he has the Southern Hospitality that one might expect but wow- did not expect to run into him and it was quite the experience.  It just had to be the one place left on earth where cell phones are banned, so no picture opportunity unfortunately.   I told Peyton that my first Colts experience was riding to Buffalo in a blizzard when the Colts were 14-0 and they benched him only to lose that game. I said thanks for my first Colts experience being one where he was riding the pine.  He laughed, apologized to me and said that if it was up to him he would have been checking down in that snow storm for 4 quarters.  He thanked me for the support, and was asking me a bit about myself, where I am from, etc.  Quite the gentleman! I think it was obligatory for him to be nice to patrons while he was wearing his Green Jacket, but none the less....a great experience meeting a childhood hero. Lynn Swann walked up to us while we were talking and shook Peyton's hand.  I joked that now was the perfect time for a 10 yard slant- and then slid into the bushes like Homer Simpson with humility.    Unforgettable experience everyone!   Would love to hear some of your Peyton stories from over the years, since it is a bit of a slow time of year before the draft! Let it fly Colts fans  
    • I agree.  I think this is another one of those over-hyped QB classes that will probably never perform to the level of the hype. But -- teams still need a quarterback.  And will convince themselves that that must take one of these quarterbacks.  That it's the only solution to their problem.  If I was forced to choose, I would probably go with Heisman winner Jayden Daniels.  I'm concerned that Caleb Williams may have some personality issues to go with his lack of measurables, even though he shows strong ability to improvise.  Drake Maye has the measurables, but I have questions regarding the level of opposition playing at UNC.  It's not the same as playing the equivalent of the Crimson Tide every single week.  JJ McCarthy is "good".  And he's been successful.  He led his team to a BCS championship.  And?  I see him in the same mold as AJ McCarron.  Supremely successful in college, but not good enough to be The Guy in the pros.
    • Right. KC was also a perennial playoff team prior to Mahomes taking over. The Colts are a fringe playoff team at best, until we see if AR can lift the roster.    And to your point, Veach took over the summer before Mahomes’ rookie year. Hard to compare how KC’s FO approach with Dorsey at GM (for several years) vs. when Veach took over. It seems like Ballard has been more like Dorsey and Veach might just operate differently from both of them.    If Ballard wanted to follow the Veach KC model, he sure waited a long time to do it once Luck retired. 
    • DeFo was an aggressive move.   But I wouldn’t classify Wentz or Ryan as aggressive moves. Getting Stafford would have been an aggressive move at QB. Wentz was cheaper and PHI was looking to dump him. They didn’t even budge from their initial offer to PHI  And Ryan sort of fell in their laps after they dumped Wentz. 
    • I think most important option is missing in the poll : No One.   I think it's a fairly average QB class that it's okay to not like anybody enough to draft him. There's no one QB that Wows you with their pocket passing Caliber or pure athletic traits or good combination of both. It's like a tweener class of all those abilities, having lop-sided combination of above said skills.    And, this poll, rather than forcing to pick one QB, needed that extra option to express staying away from this QB class.
