Boom To Ir, Still A Colt

I am pretty sure there is buzz about him possibly being released from IR with an injury settlement since it isn't a long term injury.

Injury settlement has to be done within 10 days, and then he can't re-sign with us for three weeks. I'm not sure if that's three weeks from when he's placed on IR, or three weeks from the injury settlement date. Either way, he'll either stay on IR all season -- not likely -- or he'll be away from the team for a few weeks at some point, and he'll be free to sign with anyone who wants him.

So there is a possibility that we could resign him this season after the 3 weeks time table ends, and we are in need of a running back?

Yep, he will get an injury settlement and get taken off IR but he cannot return to the Colts this year, he's free to sign with any other team.

According to the link, he can re-sign with the team, but not for six weeks after the initially prescribed recovery time, which is the time he's being paid for as part of the settlement. So if he has a 2 week injury, he can't play for us until Week 8. In the meantime, the team pays for recovery and rehab. With that timeframe, IR with Return would basically be the same.

Ahh, ok. I read a post on Stampede Blue saying he couldn't re-sign here.

Call me crazy, I was never a fan off Herron. Not sure what it was but I never saw anything that made me excited.

Reason for keeping Ballard over Herron.... How bout the jumping cyclone td against the Titans in '12? That's something I can't see Boom doing. And im almost positive Ballard will work on Robinsons game, considering he called JR his "lil bro"

That's not happening, give it a rest

 

He never gives it a rest......   can't remember the last time he made a positive post about the Colts, unless he expressed happiness over someone losing their job.

 

Hard to believe that he's a Colts' fan.......            :facepalm:

I say just leave him on IR and let him try a comeback next year for a spot.

 

One thing to remember is that we got him for nothing because nobody wanted him.  He did become a fan favorite, and I like his effort all of the time.  He was waived...nobody wanted him again.  Maybe the Colts were gambling he would clear waivers...just like Duron Carter.  If I was a GM, I would not have signed a player who is out for the year either.  Am I missing something?

I suspect many of us were thrilled with Boom last year -- except for the fumbles -- mostly because he was so much better than TRich. He can actually see a small hole and hit it. But taking TRich out of the equation, Boom is nothing special. Perhaps it was stupid to play him in the fourth preseason game, but his loss is not a huge deal.

So, did they reach an injury settlement or only place him on IR? Since he cleared waivers, was the org obligated to either reach an injury settlement or IR him? Not sure how this works...

Is it safe to say he won't play in a Colts uniform this season?

 

They have 10 days to reach an injury settlement. For now, he's just on IR.

 

If I were a gambling man, I'd say he doesn't play for the Colts this year. Even with an injury settlement, he can't play for us for at least 6 weeks, regardless of how long it takes for him to recover.

    • So you're nitpicking about receptions? Or off the field issues? Ray Lewis was accused of double murder and he's a first ballot hofer. 
    • I'm a little bullish on the Browns.  I picked them to win the division.  Sunday's game proved they aren't there yet.
    • Did anybody expect anything different?
    • Didn't you say in your previous post that stats don't mean anything?   QB is a different position than WR, obviously.  And if you read my post, I'm saying I think Rivers has the credentials to be first-ballot but he'll have a lot of competition with guys who will be retiring at or near the same time as him and who will likely be on the ballot at the same time.  This all comes into play with the selection committee.   And then let's get to the facts... Rivers is going to be top 5 in passing yards and most likely passing TDs when he retires.  Right now he is one of only 6 QBs ever to throw over 60,000 yards and 400 + TDs.   Randy Moss was a first ballot HOFer, so you're wrong there.   Randy Moss is 15th all time in receptions, he never made it to the 1,000 reception milestone.  So you're wrong that he was 'top 3 in every WR category'.  Terrell Owens is 8th all time in receptions (and wasn't in the top 5 when he retired).  Cris Carter's numbers are no where near Jerry Rice's and weren't even in 2002 when he retired (Rice retired in 2004).  I'll give you some credit, Carter at the time he retired was only the 2nd WR to have over 1,100 receptions.    Also, every one of those players you mentioned had off-field issues.  While they are not supposed to influence the selection committee, the selection committee is made up of humans and undoubtedly they do.  In the case of Moss and Owens, they were seen by many as poor teammates for a good chunk of their careers as well.   In Marv's case, Andre Reed got into the HOF in 2014 and Tim Brown in 2015.  Both WRs who had been eligible for a while.  I basically made the same argument about Rivers - Eli will be at least one class ahead of him, so I could see voters giving Eli the nod over Rivers.     
    • I am not too surprised.  I expect Tannehill to have more success in this one than Henry quite frankly.  I think that's exactly how the Steelers will play it.  They'll lean on their strength on run defense and force Tannehill to beat them.  The Steelers haven't looked like world-beaters in the passing game, but Tennessee's defense has been VERY suspect so I don't foresee them having too much trouble moving the ball.  They will need to keep things balanced between run and pass and TD's over FG's will be the key here IMHO.  Nobody knows how much losing Devin Bush and Taylor Lewan will affect those teams respectively, but I'd guess it doesn't help either of them.  If I had to pick, I'd say losing Lewan will make more of an impact in this game, therefore I'd favor the Steelers by about 2-3 points.   NOTE: My first attempt to post this I got an error, so if this ends up as a duplicate I apologize.
