Josina Anderson Tweet

Do they want veteran leadership? Maybe. Hooker definitely isn't playing until the regular season and we have no idea how Geathers is going to look until he gets on the field this year. TJ is another huge question mark. Is she blind?

I think she’s implying Ballard was showing them it’s a competition, and we have choices. 

 

In other words, we’re choosing, not them.

My guess is not much will come of this at all. Now if they made them both compete in an American Gladiators style Gauntlet to see who got signed, then that would be something.

Geathers played in the last 5 games last year.  We already know how he looks, and he looks fine.  Can we get competition for him though, yes!

So Ballard can see them compete against each other. 

 

Cmon Josina. 

 

Theres no "cmon Josina" to say.

 

She's talked to the guys --- you haven't.

 

She knows what she's talking about --- we don't.   But clearly what happened is out of the ordinary.    Doesn't make it wrong or illegal, but it's different.   And maybe the guys didn't like it...?

Or she could have just said what she meant. But since we're thinking, I'm inclined to agree with the others that it was a way to create a little competition. I keep hearing that word.

 

To be fair though, this is not important in any way. Where do I go to freak out some more about Luck's shoulder. That's always a good time..

That's kind of my issue with it. Why tweet something so ambiguously when you've talked to both players and can actually report on something? Is it really so "top secret" that she can't tell us what she learned from the 2 players that she personally interviewed?

Josina seems pretty well connected to the players. Wouldn’t be surprised if one of them wasn’t really happy with it or thought they were being leveraged or something.

 

That’s really weak of her how she did it though, especially since she was just tweeting that she’d talk about it in NFL Live and then apparently didn’t.

I don't know why she didn't share more.

 

Maybe she's working on a story on Ballard and the Colts and she's saving the scoop for that story.    

 

I dont know...   but just because she hasn't shared the info yet, it doesn't mean she won't.

 

I hope some member here Who us on Twitter asks her why she isn't sharing more...     she might just answer!

This is what passes for journalism these days... "I'm gonna make some vague innuendo that shows that I'm in-the-know and privy to information the commonfolk doesn't have, but I won't state what I mean explicitly so as to preserve plausible deniability and so I won't risk my reputation in case I get called out on my nonsense when it turns out my assumptions turned out to be incorrect" 

 

If you have something to say, say it! If you don't, why say anything?

A national reporter like her is not putting out that tweet on something so mundane.

She’s still not leaking the news 

 

 

Clayton Geathers traded maybe?

 

Malik Hooker is safe I’d imagine

I bet It was interesting because he told them he was planing to sign an un drafted rookie, Cirino, but he wanted to make sure he was looking at all his options.  He told them he respected them as players and he wanted each of them to convince him why he should sign them and then he would make his decision on Wednesday.  That's why he brought them in on the same day, Tuesday.

It's less about the character count (which is 280 now), & more about the fact that she clearly has info from talking to Boston & Vaccaro, but isn't willing to disclose it.

If this is somehow trade related, or anything along those lines, and she was asked to keep a lid on it, then at least it makes sense that she's being vague. But then again, why tweet it at all?

She did say "heard it was very interesting" maybe she is trying to verify before reporting it... you know that thing they teach in journalism.

I feel like this is Ballard these last few days. 

 

I think he's doing a great job, but sometimes I wonder if he's just bringing in these players for a reason other than signing them.  Like he's getting information from them or something.

She isn't willing to disclose it  --- yet.

Which is pretty much what I predicted.

 

And for some reason, you had to hit her with "journalism ".

My reply was mellow in comparison to some of the others, definitely dumb & immature (not here to deny that), but not "savage" by any means, at least not by Twitter standards.

Correct, but also don’t shake your head at people who have a legitimate opinion that it’s not really journalism but the equivalent of click bait.

i  have heard and read some of the stuff Josina has to say about the NFL, and IMO she doesn't have a clue what she is talking about most of the time, just throws random gibberish together and calls it a story. Realistically though, both Hooker and Geathers are coming off injuries, TJ Green may not even be on the roster. So if she knew anything about the Colts she would know that it makes perfect sense.

Don't apologize for it. You are absolutely in your right to be annoyed by the unprofessional attention-seeking of what is supposed to be a journalist from a respected media outlet. When you present yourself as a journalist and reporter and you use this specific account in that specific capacity and have all your journalistic credentials in your bio, you cannot expect people to not get annoyed when you clickbait for no good reason and with no information of any substance... only to amp up the anxiety of a fanbase that's been through enough with injuries of its best players.

Thus post makes no sense.   From the first letter of the first word to the last letter of the last word.   No sense at all.

Obviously, the Colts are making a switch to a 5-0-6 defensive scheme.

OK, exchange Colts.com with Stephen Holder if that fits better. My point is this is unprofessional nonsense. This is one of my biggest pet peeves in modern media. Throwing innuendos and speculations around like it's nothing but then refusing to clarify what exactly you meant... If you have something to say - SAY IT! If you are not ready to clarify your speculations, just don't state them to begin with. What's the value to it? There is zero value to that tweet if you don't share any real information with it... you just ramp up the anxiety of a fanbase for nothing more than attention.

Welcome to Twitter.   I'm not even on it and I understand it.    

 

But when people respond to her with "journalism" instead of asking a respectful question then I'm going to shake my head.

 

 

Josina Anderson is a responsible journalist.   She's working on something bigger.   She'll reveal her story in her time, not ours.

    • His own scouts?  The scouts are the same one who have been with the Colts for years. A couple of them have been on with the Colts for 19 years.
    • For a guy who tries to claim you like Ballard your true colors surface from time to time.   Like here.    This post.   By the way,  you were one of the biggest complainers about the 18 draft. The draft that most everyone thinks is an absolute home run.   How does your criticism look now?   You continue to fool no one...  no one but you.   As for 17....  we acquired a fair amount of talent.   But we were without some guy named Luck.   Perhaps you’ve heard of him?  And Brissett, as talented as he is, was not ready for prime time.  That contributed heavily to a 4-win season.   It’s not like this hasn’t been discussed for nearly a year now.  So why you pretend not to understand is curious...   unless you’re making an anti-Ballard argument,  which you are.
    • So you agree, he will get $40M guaranteed?
    • Yep. Here’s the thing. If you are drafting with a lame duck HC and uncertainty regarding the future defensive scheme...it makes far more sense to put  a bit more focus on offense...because they will transition better. Passing on all of that RB talent still irks me. And I would have been fine with WR on Day Two as well.   Passing on Kittle was also very disappointing...because he was so obviously going to be a steal...and many Colts fans wanted him.    But honestly, just give me Hunt or Kamara and my outlook on that draft is signicantly different. And give me one of those two + Kittle...and I am pleased as could be.
