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?

    • Even if it's MCL surgery it still takes much longer than the span of the season. 
    • It is an odd arrangement for sure. Not in a bad way necessarily...but definitely not the norm. Then again...JB's treatment has really been different from the get go. From refusing to trade him if the situation wasn't right for him...to giving him $28M before he took a snap...to keeping him as a backup after he failed and actually going through with creating silly plays for him.    They obviously really just like JB...but I don't think he will be back next year.     
    • The important thing is they aren’t ruling him out so there is a chance. They may be only repairing the mcl because the pcl seems to not require surgery as it tends to be better healing on its own.
    • What comment from JB are you talking about?    Every time Reich or Ballard talks about JB, even when asked about his desire to be a starter, they speak highly of him. They've openly said that they want him to have that desire to be a starter.    I don't think they have any issue with JB expressing that when he's asked about it.    You're acting like he's campaigning for the starting job.
    • No, you're conflating two separate issues.   I'm saying they have kept him because they like him as a backup and want him available in case he's needed, not because they don't want to admit that they made a mistake in overpaying him.   I'm not saying that the fact that they like him (which they obviously do) means that he's necessarily good.   The fact that they brought in Rivers and Eason is evidence that they have no problem admitting that they don't think JB is a quality starter, despite the fact that they paid him like he is.
