Irsay’s comments on Luck

Recommended Posts

He’s been amputated at the belly button. The guy in camp is a stunt double. When we go to SD in week 1 they’ll wheel him out on a two-wheel cart. At the snap Nelson will wheel him back behind the line and he’ll make passes from there. 

 

We’re just being coy and trying to catch the Chargers off guard in Week 1. 

 

Pretty brilliant when you think about it... 

 

They will certainly catch them off guard if they show up to play in SD...amirite

The redundancy of "small little bone" just makes this news even worse.

I agree that it is frustrating, but I still find it hard to believe he misses the start of the season.

I wonder if they will issue a statement today.

 

This doesn’t make me think any different about game one. Because we have seen him not limping and he did look good  the three days he did practice.

I think most of us knew something else was wrong. Guess Irsay felt it was the "right" time to spill the beans. I'm less than 50/50 on him starting the season now. Unfortunate it's happening like this, as Ballard has built a great team around Luck. :(

I think everyone is just a bit overly worried. The last we heard from Reich is that he is strengthening the muscle and actively working out. We also have heard numerous times that he is throwing consistently behind the scenes and working with Tom House.

 

Just yesterday it was reported that someone who watched one of those private throwing sessions said Luck was throwing the heck out of the ball. 

 

Is there an injury, yes. Is the injury going to prevent from starting week 1, no.

This is what I'm inclined to believe as well.

I occasionally have a small little bone issue too. But it's unrelated to my calf, so I won't look too much into Irsay's comments. Lord only knows what this man inteneded on saying...

If there’s someone to trust, it should be Tom House. He is the de facto go to guy.

The most important thing is Luck has been visible and isn’t limping or showing any discomfort. He is throwing and looked good in the three practices he did participate in. Irsays comments don’t change anything.

I agree, But has House said Luck will be ready week 1?  Luck has said he is "Targeting a week 1 return".... Why is House, a motion and passing guru, working so closely with Luck?  Is the calf/bone/who knows issue causing him issues in his passing too?

I was just looking that condition up. That does sound like what he might have. Good news it shouldn’t cause him to miss any time. My question is why was it not taken care of before camp.

Looks more and more like the snowboard rumor may be true.

 

IF that is the case, shame on Luck.  He already hurt his shoulder doing that, now this?

I'm more concerned with the O-line than Luck.

 

Kelly has a hard time staying healthy. Glow was an above average player last year for the first time. Smith played well but is out of his natural position.

 

The O-line was terrible against KC. The O line was terrible against Buff. The O-line has been sub-par in camp.

 

There is now a half of a year film on the Colts starting 5 for defensive coordinators to break down and find the weaknesses.......(K/C had no trouble finding them).

 

Even if the starting 5 over-achieve again this year, I see no quality depth behind them.

 

If the Colts have a disappointing  year, I believe it will be because the O-line play of last year may have been somewhat of a fluke, and it won't matter if Luck has one leg or two.

Luck working with House may just be a natural progression to his rehab for the shoulder injury from last season.  No reported information would suggest that Luck is working with him to assist with the calf injury. My guess is, Luck is working with House to continuously improve his throwing motion and would have been working with him regardless if he was dealing with the calf stuff or not.

Has anyone actually seen him lately and made sure his leg hasn’t fallen clean off Because at this point ruling anything out is foolish. 

I heard he went to Europe for treatment!!!!!!!!!

The Chargers will have to forfeit because they didn’t show up. It’s the most brilliant plan we’ve ever seen orchestrated. Flawless.

The NFL is an entertainment business. They make all of their money off of "the fans". If I am going to a broadway play or a concert I have every right to be told who will be performing so I can decide how to use my time. Fans certainly have a right to know who is going to play and who is not going to play.

How does a QB hurt a small bone in his leg during the offseason?  Helping a friend move a piano?

The guy is becoming more than injury prone. Suck it up and play.

I listen to my family full of Giant fans over the last 2 weeks and at least 50 -60 percent of their conversation (and on the Giants message board also ) 50 - 60 percent of the conversation is about DB's , DT's . LB's , offensive line TE and RB . On this message board its Andrew Luck ………….Andrew Luck ……..Andrew Luck ……..Andrew Luck ……..Andrew Luck. Beginning to envy the Giants fan base .

We don’t know that they didn’t.  Just because the Colts said it didn’t doesn’t mean it didn’t show something.   It’s been well established that the Colts aren’t obligated to tell us everything about injuries and that’s been my point through all this.  People need to stop expecting them to tell us everything and taking everything they say as the gospel truth.  Use your eyes.  Most people know it doesn’t take this long for just a simple calf strain to heal.  So that’s why I’ve thought something more was probably going on.

 

Hard for most fans to realize but these organizations owe the fan nothing. Deception should not be surprising. The Colts organization under Ballard does this more often than not. They just want us to shill out money. Buy tickets and merchandise.  It's a sad truth.:angry:

If the Colt's offense is not playing well after the first few games, the discussion here will not be "What's wrong with Luck?"....It will be "What's wrong with the O-Line?"

 

You've been warned!

With luck missing all this practice time I expect the offense to start slow.

Of course you can view it that way. But your only way of actually affecting the franchise, is speaking with your wallet. Any complaining done here....valid or invalid...has zero affect, only affects other posters. 

 

Any fan has a right to their opinion, in the appropriate forum. Some may complain about the franchise. I mostly complain about how many fans view the franchise. In all, I would hope we are all Colt fans. But not all of us view the information given out by the franchise as a "right".

    • Hey if he tears his ACL, they have no one to blame but themselves
    • I think it's fair to mention injuries in certain games.  We can and should always mention games where TY misses since we lose every one without him. It's just good context to have. We didn't specifically win/lose because of our injuries/opposing team's injuries, but I do think it puts context into the game. Just like a home/away game can, bad weather, penalties, etc.
    • Can you believe he is back at practice in a limited basis today. They are playing with fire.
    • Passer rating was much more reliable when the league was full of pocket passers. These days, not so much, and gets less reliable every year as we increase the number of dual threat QBs. I always look at the expanded QBR data (as well as NexGen, PFF, and FO) when trying to really compare QBs. There's really no perfect measurement out there IMO.   It's going to be very interesting to see how JB performs going forward. There's no doubt he was exceptional vs Houston, and it was a huge coming out day for him. Next week he'll play vs a very good passing defense unlike Houston (Houston is bottom 5 while Denver is top 5). Will Reich go back to a run heavy attack while not allowing JB to do much, or will he strive for balance. I love that Reich attacked Houston's weakness and had the confidence in JB to call that game plan, I'd just love to see that same confidence vs a tougher secondary.   And yes, his yards per completion have been low, but they were a bit better last week. Not sure if that is because Houston's passing D stinks in general, Houston was basically playing with 2nd, 3rd, and PS DBs, JB is getting better, or Reich's game plan simply included more deep 1st reads. Probably a mix. 
    • I was til this season I dont feel like going through 30 pages of JB is gonna be the MVP or the popular let's trade Luck when he comes back topic. both are ignorant as hell. how would you even know when I'm in here you've been a member for what 5 months??
