I don't think he'll be back, either.  Especially after this report.  

 

 

 

 

 

These too.  His groin is still the issue, but he was demoted.  

Injured, so demoted? <head scratcher>

 

If a guy cannot play or perform due to injury, then it's not really a demotion, as opposed to, look, you're not healthy and it is limiting you and hurting the defense, therefore you are an injury scratch.  When healthy, you'll be worked back in.  This "coach's decision" crap, well, sounds like just more questionable team management by a coach.

For whatever reason (not sure why), Pagano really didn't like that line of questioning on Sunday after the game. Probably felt like he was getting nailed to the wall even though we won, so kind of understandable.

Look, Vontae has been good for the Colts. I wouldn't be so harsh towards Vontae just because he's had injuries. It happens in professional sports. Vontae has loved being a Colt and you could tell he loves being in Indianapolis. He got married here. Vontae and his wife had a special time here. He had a few productive years for us and sadly he's on the backend of the slope. If we do not re-sign him at the end of the season (which we probably won't) then I hope he does well on his next team.

he's a very good player and it would be bad to lose him.  one or two more years and he will be a diminished player anyway I'd like to thing he has two more good years.  not great, just good.  he's serviceable, but its a business and $$ will come into play for ballard.  once we have a new coach, things will change and players that seemingly aren't ballers or have attitudes due to coaches being soft and accommodating will surely be weeded out.

He was a solid colt so I'm not going to knock him. Earned the majority of his 4 year deal unlike other stars who sign then mail it in.

 

Hopefully he catches on somewhere or comes back somehow on the cheap.

 

He's got a lot of miles that's for sure for a CB.

 

I'll always like him because at least he was a Cb who tackled on run plays.

They need to just cut this whiner and team cancer already.  The reason why you were demoted Vontae is because you suck , point blank . Ballard made it clear he doesn't care who you are you have to earn your spot , I like that way of doing business.

I don't see the attitude problem other see.  His groin is limiting his effectiveness and was demoted.  He cant perform like he used to because of injury.

That's not what the Colts or their doctors are saying.

Looks like a sure thing Vontae won't be back next year.

 

Not sure if Colts got offers but I'm thinking they should have pulled the trigger on any trade they could have been offered.

Who's going to trade for an aging CB that misses most games with injuries and stinks in the ones he does play in.  Plus he's a free agent after this year.

He's been ruled out of Sunday's game already, so apparently it was an injury-related thing last week, and not just a "coach's decision." My guess is he wanted to play through it, and Pagano said no, so a little bit of both.

You got that opposite.

    • Taking NE and Brady out of this because I think what they did was unique.   My observation is that the teams with the elite QB have more success BEFORE that QB gets paid his contract than after he gets paid.   SB teams have won, IMO, because they have gotten elite play from some players at the same time not compensating those players for the elite play.  They produce more than what the team pays them that season.   SEA was better when Russell Wilson was playing near elite QB before his contract. PITT was better when Ben was younger not being paid. I know injuries played a part, but the early Grigson Luck years were much better for the Colts than the $125M years. KC rode an elite Mahomes on a rookie contract to domination over recent seasons. BUFF is enjoying Allen's low pay day relative to his talent and play.  What will happen to them when he gets paid?   (and another version of that formula, even though Denver paid PM, they got a huge boost from an elite Von Miller playing an impactful position on a cheap rookie contract)   OTOH.   NO has been paying Brees and hasn't quite gotten there consistently. ATL pays Ryan and got their once. PITT has been playing Ben but they have not been an elite team with him at that pay scale. I suspect that Lamar will never earn top tier QB money, yet BALT will be right there with all of those teams.   We made our bed when we picked a G at 6, and will pay him elite Olineman money.  I don't see where we are going to be putting the ball in our QBs hands every play and ask him to win the game when we are paying a G to also run block at an elite level.  We will probably always be more of a running team than the average playoff team because of our investment in our G.  Taking the ball out of our QBs hands means that we will not also never truly need that top guy.   And we will win with Wentz if he outplays what has been invested in him.  If he plays like a 3rd rounder and future 1st (just for starting, IOW, because he happens to be the best QB on the roster) then we probably wont go deep into the playoffs. He will always be compensated less than top tier simply because he will be getting old.   Maybe we should have taken Fields and hoped he gave us elite play on the cheap before we'd have to decide between him and Nelson.   
    • I know what a strange baseball season so far. The Cubs have a good team overall, we are like all the other good teams in the NL basically. We have our ups and downs but that is baseball with a 162 game season. The only team in the NL right now that can say they have played great are the Giants at 45-25. Looking at all the good teams in the NL, they are all 8 games above .500 with the exception of the Dodgers who are 42-27. Cubs are 39-31, Padres 40-32, and Mets 35-27. So the other teams fans feel our misery when a loss happens as well. We really need to just start playing more consistent. It needs to start tomorrow with the Marlins who we are much better than.   If someone told me before the season started that we would be in 1st place in the NL Central through 70 games on June 19th, I would take it. That is the extreme positive way to look at this.
    • Who wouldve guessed that the only win for NL Central tonight would be the Pirates beating the Indians 
    • Brewers just lost to the Rockies again , we are still in 1st place in the NL Central. Cards lost as well and the Reds are down 5-2 to the Padres.
    • It was that comebacker. That seemed to effect his play after. Hopefully he's alright and returns back to before
