I don't think this is as big of a deal as tomorrow.  If he can throw on consecutive days, without pain, then he will be close IMHO.  Still nice to see him finally throwing a football though.

Thrilled to be wrong on this. Let's see if he throws all 3 days or if he's still on an every other day routine.

He said he hasn't thrown The Duke. Has he been throwing the college ball all this time?

 

This is great news.  His projection to be at training camp with no governor (restrictions) seems on pace now.  He appears to be on a throwing program of sorts, with a distance limit and pitch count. Question is, how long has he been on it, how far along is he, and how long before he's completely cleared for full live 11 on 11 drills or scrimmage work? We'll know more at training camp.  As long as he doesn't encounter any more serious problems (I'm sure he'll have minor things to work through/overcome) until then, It looks really good for the Colts right now.  Quite pleased and my cautiously optimistic outlook has changed to just optimistic now.

Cautiously optimistic, let's see how he feels by Friday morning.

 

Definitely great news though!

He's supposed to speak with the media after practice, so hopefully that'll provide some clarity on his timeline moving forward.

Might be a little early for long stretches of consecutive days.  From what he did (reported) he performed at a phase I level of an interval throwing program.  Weight training is supposed to be done on throwing days as well, and there is typically a day off between each throwing session; for rest and flexibility.

 

"The unit has a grueling campaign that inches closer daily. I shall be ready."

 

So if he doesn't throw in consecutive days for the time being, don't everyone freak out please.

 

{EDIT:} We also do not know all that goes on behind those closed doors. Hopefully it is even better news than they shared with us today.

For someone who is more familiar with the type of rehab he was doing...is this really that much different?

College ball is wider around the middle. And it's not The Duke, so, a technicality. 

 

Edit: I just fact checked this, I guess there is no size difference. I always felt the NCAA ball is wider than the NFL ball, but it seems they're both supposed to be 7 inches. 

Except for Brady's which are slightly smaller.

Like I said previously I think I will just stick with what Ballard and Reich have been telling us this whole offseason.

 

Glad we don't have to depend on anybodies "theory" now!

True, but I expect him to be vague.  However, his actions (limited amount of soft toss) and tweet already hinted IMHO-

 

"The unit has a grueling campaign that inches closer daily."

 

Stay on pace Andrew...

I suppose the NFL balls would appear to be smaller if you only watched Patriot games...            :)

The ball he threw is actually a high school football-

    • Thing of it is I don't think 1 person has ever went as far as saying he is a franchise QB in here. I do not recall it. I have stuck to my same opinion all year. Even when we were 5-2 I was calling JB above average. I was saying he isn't bad and we can games with this guy. I defend him mainly when someone says he sucks and blames everything on him. That just isn't right IMO when you have had the injuries we have had. Like I have always said though the QB and coach gets most of the blame. It has always been like that with fans as most just see it that way and do not look at other factors.
    • I'm not even mad at him. Why risk your career for a team going nowhere this season and who is likely not re-signing you; and even if they did they are going to try to give you  low contract based on the numbers you put up with the back up QB.  I think what Luck did is worse than Ebron. 
    • Jacoby knows he will have to play well next year if we draft a future QB. He will want a starting job after next season. Players know it’s a business.
    • I think one reason JB takes so much heat is that the organization whether intentional or just coach speak gave fans the impression he was fully capable of stepping in and being the franchise QB.  A lot of fans fully bought into the hype and pushed that narrative as well.  Then when it became obvious to many he was not franchise level and his flaws were obvious many posters insisted on continuing to push the narrative that JB is the man. I believe the JB defenders digging their heels in with constant excuses even as more flaws were discovered and proven caused him to take more heat than he he would have taken otherwise.   
    • You seem stuck on a false belief in JB being above average and you don’t seem willing to believe it when others point out that even with all his weapons healthy, JB was not performing well at all. He just isn’t an average QB, he just isn’t. He will never carry a team to wins, he needs lots of help. I will also add that I don’t think his OC has helped him with schemes either. He is still trying to fit him into the Luck Passing scheme. It’s not good for JB though.
