Friendly Reminder from TigerTown     

   There is more to life than the health of AL

This!

 

Watching the Colts is a hobby, not life or death. No need to get angry or depressed about complete strangers playing a kid's game.

It is different for me when I talk about Princeton Community H.S. Tiger Sports, or LV Aces Basketball

Hoping jacoby takes the opportunity and runs with it. This is a completely different team than the one he led in 2017. Would love nothing more for him to come in and light it up. He’s got talent and there’s talent around him. I know one thing, I’m sure he’s ready for this opportunity and think the players will rally around him.

Andrew said hes playing week one. That's all I care about

HE never really said that. He said he was working towards that.

 

I wonder who will lose a roster spot because we are going to have to carry three QB. This might be the reason fountain or another bubble guy does not make the team.

At this point, I just don’t see it. Three weeks from first game and doesn’t sound like he’s progressed any over the past two weeks. Hope I’m wrong.

 A high ankle sprain is a terrible football injury that can be easily reinjured and ruin season.  If that is what it is, every precaution is absolutely necessary.

Well TY Played through it. We do need to get it taken care of so it isn’t a issue during the season.

I coached HS football and you would rather have a broken ankle than a high ankle sprain in many instances.  It is a very bad injury for a football player and the chances of reinjuring are very very high.  His season is in jeopardy, and that is just the way she goes with that injury.

Read that mike Chappell article. They think it is similar high ankle sprain. They believe they have figured it out. My question is what took so long?

 

When did the high ankle sprain occur?  If all of this happened in March, shouldn’t whatever it is be healed by now?

they can take months to heal if its a bad sprain.  i had one of those myself from playing basket ball.  severe sprains are worse than breaking bones 

 

if thats really what it is they should have found it by now though, sprained ankles are usually easy to diagnose

They mentioned luck has had a bad ankle for years. It could be the calf that caused the sprain. It also could be the bad ankle was causing the calf.

Have you ever tried to explain to doctors what you are feeling? They call the medical field a "practice" for a reason.  Granted Luck does have the best doctors and care money can buy.  

 

I'm no athlete or anything but I have issues with problems that have taken YEARS to diagnose and some they still don't know what the cause is or there simply is not a fix for it. 

 

On a side note rather Luck plays week 1 or even at all this season or ever again ( sarcasm) the SUN WILL rise tomorrow. The world will still function and the Colts will still play football. 

 

Theres more to life then football and even the greats will tell you that. Enjoy it and relax. There is alot of things in this world that causes stress, who plays on Sunday shouldn't be the cause for us FANS. Granted Ballard or Irsay may lose a little sleep but in reality I HIGHLY doubt even they lose sleep.

No one is thinking the sun isnt going to shine tomorrow. It’s called having a conversation and discussing a issue. I know sometimes internet can make things seem more concerning they they actually are.

Sorry I should have been more direct with quoted response, which was just the first paragraph. The rest of my post was just general statements. Sorry for any confusion.

 

I guess the " ON A SIDE NOTE" wasn't obvious.

In trying to be optimistic, if the team has narrowed it down to the ankle area, they have 3 1/2 weeks to knock the pain down to a point where Andrew can practice and play. Hopefully that is enough time.

That’s my thoughts. Go FULL bore on focusing their attention to that area and get to as close to 100% as possible. Me thinks he plays with a “little” pain throughout the season.

Does out training staff know what they are doing?

For the first time, I’m gonna say this, Colts need an upgrade at the trainer & doctor position(s). This is beyond foolish. Even Army doctors would have figured this out by now.

Part of me wonders if it’s just a second injury. Say calf sprain first. That heals and then he does something to the ankle, but they don’t see anything on an mri so they think calf flared up.

The chargers have a scary pass rush. I doubt he plays week one.

Yes that is what sounds like happened.

I went through a lot of ankle issues playing basketball and football in middle and high school. Finally after three right ankle sprains, it snapped coming down from catching a pass. Granted I didn’t have world class care and coaching staff that made light of anything that wasn’t a break. So them being this cautious with him is good and I hope it helps.

Tests reveal that Luck is made of glass. Wish he was like Tom Brady.

 

Maybe he could do the TB12  workout?

Don’t you know the real Tom Brady has been locked in BB’s basement all this time and that’s a robot out there.

It will be interesting if he isn’t ready to go week one if they carry three QB or they put Luck on IR for 8 weeks. There is going to be a lot of decisions that have to be made week one. Especially if sheard isn’t ready to go taking up another spot.

Good lord people act like it’s the end of world! Reich has said multiple times that he is fine, if he had to play now he would they are just being carful with him. Why put out greatest asset out in a meaningless game when he’s not 100 percent?

    • So 2 of their starting WRs are out, and one of the number 2s is questionable.  They are basically down to one healthy starter (Hoagan), a questionable depth guy, and one healthy depth guy. Josh Malone has been signed to the active roster.   Starting RT is out, starting C is questionable.    Gotta feel sorry for Darnold. Not really. Hope we crush him lol.    
    • I agree with the WR statement, not necessarily a high first round pick  Then again, Pittman isn't really a take-the-top-off the defense type of WR like TY is, and Ballard spent a very high second on him.    Reich's offense is supposed to be about disbursing the ball around with plays schemed to assist non-stud pass catchers, more so than the offense we used to have.  But any NFL offense needs playmakers who can do something with the ball once they get it.     Having mid level talented skilled position players is sort of what we've had, and the lack of individual playmaking puts too much pressure on the QB and play caller executing the correct play.  Coaches benefit from having a player who can make two moves and go 60 yards by themselves, and they tend to not be found in mid to late rounds.   Also agreed about CB.  The zone scheme doesn't need a shut down corner like VD.  The scheme does need a 3 tech on the dline, and a better pass rush, so its nice to see the investment of pick 13 into a position that matters with the Buckner acquisition.   Personally, I think the pass rush can be done by committee.  Even great players get gassed.  But there should be one DE along with Buckner that the defense has to account for when he's in the game.  I think that player requires a first round investment.   I've always been less enthused about the need for a stud TE.  I think the plamaking pass catchers should be the WRs and versatile RBs, but to get the kind of TEs the NFL seems to want, I think its going to take a pretty high pick.   And then there is AC's retirement looming.  Always need a 1st rounder for a LT if you want him to start as a rookie, unless dumb luck lets one drop out of tree.
    • I really don't give 2 sheets about Ebron, but it's still all speculation. We don't know what the argument was.   But as I've said before, going from a guy who was our primary red zone target, to only getting 3 targets inside the 10 in 11 games in 2019 is pretty WTH, especially given our problems on O. And aside from his 3 drops in the Oakland game, he was pretty good (0 drops in the Pitt game and 3 games leading up to it) afterwards.    IMO, the writing was on the wall in terms of him not being extended. I don't blame him for going and getting his body taken care of if he knows he's not coming back. It's business.   At Pitt so far, he's got 4 catches for 61 yards, and 3 of those are for 1st downs. He's also had 2 drops.    
    • We need to worry about ourselves in this game. Players need to be smart and focused. No turnovers, no foolish mistakes. If we do that then we’ll be fine. But if we start turning over the ball in our own territory, then it’ll be a long afternoon.    We better be mentally prepared...
