I'm fine with that.  Although one thing I do have to note though.  I'm not entirely sure if it makes sense with QB's off career passing days.  Performance enhancing drugs to my understanding make you faster and stronger.  

 

I'm not sure what if any PED's would help you stand in the pocket delivering accurate strikes. 

 

Hmmm, how about the use of Adderall, for one?

 

{which is both a Performance Enhancing Substance ( PES ) and a drug of Substance Abuse (Recreational )

Oh I don't doubt that he'll pass, I just found the timing interesting is all. Has the game of his career then gets "randomly" tested... probably not a coincidence.

NFL just trying to cripple us.

Maybe!  Up to 10 players can be tested! That leaves 9 more of the 46 as potentials...

5 tests for Zach, 5 tests for JB

Brissett  might have to complete  25 of 25 passes for 500 yards and 7tds with 0 ints to impress him.

If the man can’t somehow get a stat line of 40 for 25 passes with at least 6td’s and no tipped balls or int’s, color me not impressed :lol:

Here is the thing about the drug testing.  Why does the NFL try to insist that it's random?  It's obviously not and why would that bother ANYONE?

 

The most dominate players out there should get the most testing.  

 

Feels like the NFL realizes this but for some reason thinks it's going to offend our sensibilities if they admit to that and continue to claim that it's all random.

 

It's not random and I don't think anyone thinks it should have to be.  I don't mind testing a guy after a career day.  I don't mind if the best players out there are being tested every 2 or 3 weeks while the team's 6th string wide receiver gets tested only once a year.  

 

Is there anyone here who thinks that is wrong?  

It is random, today, we randomly choose this guy. That’s random enough for me :stir:

Winny nailed a FG from 50some yard few years ago, and he was "randomly " drug tested too...

It's done independently (Lab not part of the NFL), and just 10 of the 46 players are selected via computer, not a human.

The computer selects, but how was the computer programmed to make selections?  I'm betting it wasn't a true random number generator subroutine type of thing. Stats input seems reasonable.

Not here.  It makes sense, but I would not admit my computer selections were not random either.  ;)

The NFL called Brissett in for a drug test and his urine was blue, at that point the lab people said you are not human and get out of here, it is all good man. Jacoby Brissett Mind Blown GIF by Bleacher Report

    • Parcells did not know him at first. He followed his career since he was young and began going to his games and then they became friends. I read s New York Times article about he and Parcells. They mentioned that parcells doesn’t normally emote such praise over a football player and yet he compared him to Curtis Martin and a few of his favorites. Now that’s not normal stuff like you are saying. FR and CB were doing the same thing while Luck was still with us and I noticed that it was odd that they did it for a backup QB. When asked about Luck they would mention his talent, but CB often went the “we aren’t about 1 person “ route. We are building a team.  I think it’s a noticeable difference and I thought that all along. J read every article Colts. Com puts out. So I do not think it’s just a song and dance act in his case. They may still draft a QB which would be smart anyway, but I don’t think they necessarily grade him exactly the way most fans are right now. They treat Vinny the same way. By the way. They put the onus on the entire team when JB or Vinny is criticized. IDK. They may not replace JB so quickly as many think.
    • Ballard can't control injuries, players turning the ball over, Luck retiring, etc. I thought both Ballard and Reich handled the season well and despite all the obstacles, they were able to keep this team competitive in every game they played.   The future is still bright in Indy. A ton of young guys got a lot of experience in 2019 and the Colts are in salary cap heaven and have three picks in the first two rounds of the 2020 Draft.    
    • Yes, we released the TE we brought up from the PS a couple weeks ago. Guy never saw a snap
    • A ton of rookies are getting a ton of playing time in 2019 and most of them have impressed the heck out of me. Ya-Sin, Khari, Okereke, Banogu, have all shown me something. Parris Campbell had a rough season with all the injuries, but I'm confident whenever he manages to stay on the field, he will make plays and prove to be another solid pick by CB.
    • Since Vinny's knee is basically shot for the 2019 season this is a great chance for Chris Ballard to get a good look at McLaughling as possibly the Colts starting kicker beyond 2019. Either way, the Colts will move on from Vinatieri no matter what he decides to go beyond 2019. Place him on IR and see what you have from McLaughing. Worst case scenario you sign or draft another Kicker to be your guy.
