I didn't mind OTA's too much, now I'm upset. Campbell, Funchess, Fountain and (eventually) Cain NEED this time with Luck and he's going to be out another week minimum for training camp. Secondary can't even play against an actual NFL QB. I expect us to be rusty out of the gate again. :( 

 

BTW, thanks for the updates @CR91!

I don’t think this will cause us to be rusty. He wil probably workout with the receivers at Stanford before training camp.

 

i thought it was interesting Reich said Hines was the third down back. Is that because of his passing ability. I thought that was interesting.  I never would of thought of Hines as third down back.

You never thought of Hines as the third down back?     What the?

 

Hines was drafted to be the third round back.    That’s why he caught 60-something passes as a rookie.

Maybe she means from a blocking standpoint?

I bet they end up in Cali running route tree's with him between now and TC.

Why are you upset? Nothing you can do about it. While not ideal for Luck to miss, OTA's and mini camp are just drills in shells, they can't even put pads on yet. As long as he's full go by training camp, that will be fine. That's when practice is actually translatable.

I would rather have him miss OTAs and not TC and meaningful games

I guess I was thinking third and short yardage. Which he isn’t. I do get though why he is a third down back because he gives them options. Sorry for the confusion.

Both of you are assuming he'll be back for training camp. I don't buy that until it happens. Not saying he'll miss regular-season games, but this seems like a lingering injury that could hurt the whole team and I'm getting frustrated.

Rushing back from injuries too soon causes negative effects

JC, you gotta relax man. Remember being all upset about Leonard's contract negotiations last year? How'd that work out?

That was a contract, this is an injury, and I'm tired of Luck being out or not healthy. Healthiest he's been in 3 years and it starts immediately. Also hurts the team. A team like this is supposed to be fun. This is not fun. :(

Really not worried.

Luck is a pro and will not take too long to learn the new receiver's tendencies.  It's much easier with a vet QB having the downtime rather than a rookie who knows none of his receivers.  This could definitely be much worse.  He'll probably use that time out in CA with the guys to catch up with the timing.  If he misses camp because of the injury THEN you can worry a bit.

Then lets go ahead and start the "Will Andrew Luck ever walk again" thread.

Well, after that quote from Bremer, looks like he's already practicing for playing that way!  :lol:

Luck is a veteran. They said he has been working hard in meetings and studying. As long as he gets time with his receivers before camp I don’t see the problem. He never threw to Ebron until training camp and look at the chemistry they have. I wouldn’t be surprised if he has sat with Funchess just talking about the play book.

Yep, and even though I saw him ride his bike to the Indy 500, I couldn't confirm he wasn't pedaling with his hands. LOL.

Your posts are 2005 level emo. I have an overwhelming urge to bust out some My Chemical Romance and wear guyliner while reading them.

    • I agree to an extent, but knowing Ballard's history, I don't see him gambling much either.  If though for instance, if Love is their guy, and he's not projected to go until early second, I could see them going DT first IF they have a trade partner to pop back into the mid/late 1st round (17-22nd) for a QB (Love). Or they may be happy with both Love and Eason for instance and feel confident at least one is available later.   I honestly don't care as long as they don't mortgage the future. 
    • Being middle of the road isn't going to be of much value in trying to get a QB, if that's even a thing (it probably should be, but don't be shocked if it's not).   I feel like we're watching a slow rolling undoing of future potential and we're kind of ending up where we were under Grigson and Pagano when they go fired, for different reasons. They had Luck but a bottom barrel roster. Ballard and Reich have a passable roster (when healthy) but QB issues. Both are going to result in hovering around 8-8 and that's no mans land when it comes to fixing big issues through the top of the draft.
    • My insights were correct! I knew he was getting over 300 million!
    • Well put "HarryTheCat", definitely below avg.
    • There's only 10% difference in hit rate between 2nd and 3rd round TEs. And 3rd through 5th all have similar hit rates. Given well rounded TEs have arguably the 2nd steepest learning curve (QB is first) when transitioning to the NFL, early impact TEs are pretty rare (unless they are limited to receiving and not so much blocking). In short, if you're not going 1st round for TE (which teams rarely do), rounds 3-5 are just fine.   I also doubt the FO sees TE as dire right now (enough to use a second). They just locked up Doyle, and MAC was improving and tracking well last year before his regression (really lack of targets, not his regression) this year. And, probably most important, TE is a devalued position (similar to LB), are are one of the best values in FA. That plus the steep learning curve (longer development) make FA TEs more attractive than drafting an early TE.   In terms of talent, this isn't a great class for top end TE talent anyway. I don't see any TEs projected in the first round. Only 2 that might go in the 2nd, but I'd actually bet on only 1 going mid to late 2nd. Then there are 2-4 that will go 3rd or 4th. There are several hidden gem type that could go 4-6 IMO.
