I hate that Luck is out. It really is a downgrade from Luck to Brissett, and it affects Parris Campbell negatively because he can't develop chemistry with Luck. Also gives us an overvalued opinion of the secondary when it's Brissett who's making mistakes. Very hard to judge anything accurately.

OTAs aren't the only time they can work together, There is still mini camp and they can work out together before training camp

I hear ya, but they really aren't allowed to do very much in OTA's anyways. Very basic drills in shells and not always at full speed.  The meat of the offseason work and playbook installation is training camp. That's why they are cautious with guys in the spring.

 

Campbell can always workout privately with Luck like Rogers did at Stanford last year. Plenty of opportunities.

Not gonna lie... if we have to wait through the brutal 6 week stretch between OTAs & training camp just for Luck to throw a football, that will definitely annoy me.

Yes, and rumors will start to fly.

Has he thrown at all this offseason? I thought he was supposed to work with Tom House again in California, but I'm not sure if he made it out there or not.

I honestly don't think it matters. Andrew is fine. There is nothing alarming about missing OTAs

He and Reich have already both stated that he wasn't going to throw until OTA's. Implying that he would be throwing now if he didn't suffer the calf injury. I believe Kevin Bowen stated that he'll likely work out with House after the June mini camp and before training camp.

Love the fact that Leonard showed up w/o boot! Seems like he is healing quickly. Also cool to hear Luck is in the weight room. He is working on what he can.

I agree, Luck will be fine. It's just frustrating and means OTA's are somewhat of a waste of time for the starting WR's, TE's, and secondary to a degree. Playing with Brissett does not offer the same benefits as playing with Luck, and the offense will have to do the same thing with Luck all over again later. I can't get into this, I'll just leave. Enjoy OTA's everyone.

I wouldn't say its a waste. Rookies and first year players are still getting valuable reps that they'll need to prepare for the season.

I love the fire from Brissett and funchess.  Brissett has looked bad in OTA ‘s so far.

By the sound of things, Ballard may have created a No Fly Zone.

 

L.O.W. = Legion of Whom... in other words, a bunch of under the radar guys with really cool names that no one can score points against.

    • Luck always played good in the 4th quarter when we were down. Defenses would play prevent to stop the big play and he would pick them apart. When you are ahead in the 4h quarter defenses tighten down to get a stop. JB andColts  have had the lead Quite a bit this year. This is where we  need playmakers to get us critical 1 st downs in the 4h quarter. Either Frank thinks our running game should be able to do that or JB is not seeing open receivers that Frank dials up. IDK. 
    • This is an absolute lie, and you should know better. Tanking is a great strategy. It brought the Astros and Cubs world series, it brought the Colts Andrew Luck. The higher the pick, the more choices you have to either A.) pick a higher rated player on your board, or B.) trade down and accumulate more picks (like the Quenton Nelson trade). Top 15 picks are better than top 20 picks. Look at Ryan Kelly and Malik Hooker. The draft is not a crap shoot, it's about strategy and research, and every GM would rather have 5 extra players available to them at 15 than 20. This is not a debate, and Ballard would agree with me.
    • There is some truth to that, but odds are that you do better with the pick in the top 15.  The player you want is more likely to be there at 13 rather than 18.   Good players can be taken anywhere, but your odds improve with the better pick position.  
    • Go with Brissett against the Saints.  There is still a shot at the playoffs.   Assuming we lose that game, start Kelly the last 2 games.  There is no downside.   It gives the fans what they want.  It gives the coaches and Ballard a look at what Kelly is.  Worst case is that we lose both games and gain draft position.   It's not tanking.    If Kelly doesn't get some playing time, I think we go into next season with Jacoby as the starter and Hoyer as the back up again.  They signed Hoyer to a 3 year $12 million contract with $9 million guaranteed.  
    • One of two things will happen with Luck. He'll either return next year (I can see Irsay making a plea to him based on our QB position and so we don't have to draft a QB) or he'll stay permanently retired. This is a perfect chance for him to return where INDY and the fanbase will welcome him back with open arms. It's next year or never for Luck.
