Where are all the haters now?  I am glad he's back throwing!  He's going to be one of the most motivated players in the league this year!

 

They'll be around to see/hope Luck has soreness in his shoulder.  If he is fine with no setbacks they will fade away never to be seen again, as usual.

He threw a Duke 2-3 weeks ago. (get past the mental aspect/block) 

 

He is throwing Monday - Wednesday, and Friday {it mimics Wed-Fri and Sunday schedule he will have during the season} with the TDS 1205.  So he will not throw this upcoming Thursday .

 

He has some soreness, but not like last year. Then, it was pain.. no pain this year.

Per www.nfl.com:

 

http://www.nfl.com/news/story/0ap3000000936847/article/andrew-luck-throws-footballs-during-colts-minicamp

 

"It was known that Luck had thrown weighted balls, and coach Frank Reich said at March's Spring League Meeting that Luck had started throwing small-sized footballs.

 

Luck confirmed to reporters Tuesday that he threw a regulation-sized ball a few weeks ago.

"I've thrown a real football. The Duke. I've picked it up and I've thrown it and it felt great."

He already said he hasn't had any pain like last year...which is very encouraging. Does seem like he has bit of a ways to go...but I am excited that he now has a throwing schedule that will mimic practice weeks.

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. 

Thats what she said

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. 

I would think he doesnt go from 0 to 60 right away.  Maybe every other day unless he only throws 10 or so for 10 yards like today.

but, any way you losok at it, its GREAT news.

Anyone catch that interview?

Loved it. Andrew sounded po'd and is ready to show those who forgot how good he is.

 

Wasn't much, I just liked how he said, when we go, we go hard, you don't see it but we go hard. No soreness, I'm ready for more.

Same here. I have been burned in the past. Regardless, I definitely didn't think he would start throwing this early in the summer after everything that was said recently.

 

I am very interested to see how he is doing after following the M/W/F schedule for a couple of weeks. If they get past that, it seems like there is a good chance he could be a full-go for TC.

  We all want guarantees but no one knows for sure if he’ll stay healthy, the rest of his career.

     Bottom line is; he is doing what he supposed to do and should be okay but football is a funny sport and one hit could end his season- no different than any other player. I’m hoping (and believing) the best: that Andrew Luck will be better than before and lead the Colts to multiple SB victories.

You mean we're better than the Browns again? :rock:

Browns might actually be decent this year. I can see them winning 5 games or so. That would be a huge improvement compared to winning 0. Regarding Andrew, I really havent been worried ever since I seen what kind of shape he was in a couple of months ago. He looked like his oldself. Last season he looked thin and weak. He seemed depressed as well. He's been very upbeat for a while this time around. I still have no doubt he will start Week 1. Been saying it for a while. Where I am a little worried is when he takes hits in real time game action.

Hypothetical if he starts in Game 1 and stays healthy, we can definitely go 9-7 and make the Playoffs as a WildCard. At this point I will take that after missing the Playoffs 3 straight years. He will be rusty for 2 or 3 weeks but we play the Bengals here on opening day so we should win that game regardless to start 1-0, you would think so anyway LOL

He should definitely start week 1 at this point, barring any setbacks. I think we'll know by the beginning of the season if he can take a sack, and at the very least, play without any pain anymore. 9-7 record with a wildcard is what I'm thinking as well. Luck will be back to his old self by the end of the season, and the two questions will be 1.) Were we good enough to make the playoffs? 2.) If we did, can we beat a playoff caliber team based on how good the team currently is and if Luck is back to 100%?

Actually, he said he has had / does sometimes have soreness.  It is manageable. What he stressed, this year he has no pain!  That is what he had last year.  Very different, soreness and pain.

He looks on pace, but he has to increase his # of reps, and distance/velocity gradually all the way up to leading into training camp.  Then he has to get #1 reps with receivers for timing and throw dynamically (moving around the pocket, different launch points/arm angles, off back foot, etc...) with unfamiliar receivers (except T.Y. and Doyle, right?).

 

It's good news, and worth rooting him on.

I think making the Playoffs is probable with a healthy Andrew Luck because IMO I think our Defense will be better than last years as well. Not sure how Good Houston will be? Jacks will probably win the Division. It will be tough to win a Playoff game though. I think if we do squeeze into Playoffs this season, next season is when we become a threat in the Playoffs. After 1 more Draft and Free Agency, we should be Good to Very Good in the 2019 Season. The Patriots window is closing too, they have this season but after that Brady just keeps aging.

I think next year we'll definitely be more aggressive in FA. The draft should be pretty solid as well since we still have an extra 2nd rounder from the trade down, and the Jets shouldn't be too good this year even if Darnold gets playing time. The Pats might not even make the SB this year. Brady is 41 when the season starts, so he's on limited time. The decline could start this season. We just have to hope these two draft classes that Ballard has drafted work out this year and Luck gets back to 100%. If both of those happen, we are on the fast track to success.

YAWN, wake me up when it’s a regulation size ball & no limitations.  Hold off on those Season Tix unless your a river boat gambler Son.  Fool me once, shame on You but fool me twice, nice try Irsay!  Hope this is it but...

He’s been throwing them for about 3 weeks to Reggie. Watch his interview and look at Reggie’s twitter account.

For this coming season, I don't care about won loss record.  I'm looking to see how quickly Luck gets rid of the ball as a matter of offensive scheme, and how the Oline blocks for that scheme.  And defense, I'd like to see the LBs and safeties stop a crossing route with a pass defense or at least a quick tackle.

    • I banned myself from the board after the game because all I wanted to due was rag on Reich after the game. I thought a week away would temper my opinion, but it didn't. I agree that this is Reich problem, agree that some players need to play better, but also know the players weren't prepped well, and the game plan did not put them in the best position to do well.    Reich's game plan was boneheaded. I'm not quite sure which was worse, last year's Miami game, or last weekend. I have zero problem with passing more than throwing, but we had more than twice the passing attempts than rush attempts. That's just dumb against Jax, it's uber dumb for the first game, and super duper dumb when you have our OL and RBs. We won in time of possession, and had 27first downs compared to 17 of theirs and still lost. 85 rushing yards on 21 attempts, even with Mack going down, is just silly.    And while I didn't think it was smart giving up an easy 3, the play calling was just horrible. 1) Using your APB instead of Mack or Taylor, 2) going over the LG is predictable, 3) last year we were more successful over the RG and right in general on running plays. 4) if your gong to use your scat back, at least hit the edge or use misdirection. Those combined 4 things are just incredibly bad. And still would have been bad even if we scored.    On D, again we gave up way too much cushion. Sure some DBs made mistakes, but our Charmin soft zone again made a 2nd rate QB look like a surgeon. Jax has zero running game (they only had 72 RB yards), and their starting RB1 is a UDFA. To allow them success running in the first half was inexcusable. And to not play more aggressive press man vs a guy like Minshew is another    Rivers - I don't mind 1 INT per game, especially if a QB is throwing 300 yards. The first INT, I can understand a bit. Rivers got fooled when Henderson handed off his man to the S and came back to help double TY. It was a great call by the DC, and was kind of a set up as Henderson was typically sticking to his man. There's a good vid on youtube showing the Xs and Os of the play. I'll also say it was not a typical clean/quick route by TY. It's was a 7 route releasing from the inside. TY did a little lazy juke fake inside and then went out. The lazy look of the turn bothered me less than effort he had on the ball. Normally TY is a sharp aggressive cutter, and fights for the ball. The hole route/effort just looked un-TYish. You could tell by some of the lazy routes of the other WRs that this play was always going to TY (look at the left inside route). Anyway, I'm tired of trying to call plays for TY, or forcing plays to TY, when we had so much success elsewhere. The 2nd INT was come from behind stuff late in the game which most QBs suffer from. His fault, but should have never been in that position in the first place. He owned it. I expect better things.   OL - Our OL looked bad at time vs a mediocre Jax DL. On the 4th down stop of Hines, Nelson got shed like a rag doll. Hines should not have been running that in the first place, and going over the LG was predictable, but Nelson can't look that bad if he's going to live up to his rep. Stupid call by Reich, bad job by Nelson.    DBs - Moore to me was the biggest disappointment. Certainly didn't live up to his billing. No DB played good, but at least Rock wasn't as bad as the rest. IMO, the game plan and scheme contributed to guys looking bad. So tired of the Charmin soft zone. Once again, giving up that much cushion made a mediocre to bad QB look like an all star.    
    • Ballard addresses weaknesses every off season. Every year, a new position group just sucks. The following draft, and FA, he goes out and does something about it.    I get the frustration. But every year someone talks like this.    It is quite hard to find the right players all the time, and 31 other teams are competing for these players. Its not like Ballard has his pick of the litter, and your comment makes it sound like that isnt the case at all, just that he hasn't addressed it.    If you were talking about letting Desir go, I'd agree with you, i dont get that, but everything you said is pure frustration and nothing else. 
    • Normally I’m am against any of these big name trade or older trade ideas, but this one I could actually get behind. The age worries be a bit but if we could get him for a couple years, it’d give us a one two punch at TE like we need. 
    • Man, total bummer he is hurt but few of us are surprised.  I personally hope he is not resigned even on an incentive based deal. Every year he is hurt and his best season was barely over 1k yards without a top 5 OL that played the entire year.   He has given the Colts the best he could and his career will be downhill from here and will most likely be out of the league after 2-3 more seasons.  It’s unfortunate but this happens with RBs all the time. Please just move on and cut losses bc talented employees that never  live up to their potential are more aggravating than the bad ones.
