Last hurrah vs the Panthers and Jaguars for AV, FG #600 then, I am calling it now. :)

Mack and Campbell are playing. Reich said Mack will not be on a pitch count but expects all four backs to be active. Time for Campbell to show what he is made of. I hope  we make him a focus of the offense these last four games.

I’ll settle for him staying healthy these last four games.

Sure seems like that’s a possibility.
 

Will be interesting to see what happens if Chase kicks really well, and then Vinny is ready to go for the last game or two. Will be even more interesting if Colts are still in playoff hunt.

I just have a gut feeling that if Vinny can kick, both Frank and Irsay would want him to get that 600th FG.

Putting a personal milestone over what’s best for the team is a bad path to go down.

I meant that if AV is healthy enough to kick, even if Chase is kicking well, the job will be given back to AV after a couple of games, just like Robbie Gould's job was given back to him though Chase kicked well enough for the 49ers, thus allowing the 600th FG to happen along the way.

How many attempts will it take for home to make that 600th kick?

He has so many records.  Does it really matter if he gets to 600?   Good grief.

Serena has 23 Grand Slams and owns several records but she wants her 24th and more. That is what keeps champions like them going. Brady didn't stop when he got to the most number of SBs at 5, he wanted a 6th, that is what those guys play for. Beyond a point, records do not mean much but moving the goal posts keeps them going. I could go on and on but you get the point.

Except Serena is in an individual sport and if she bombs out it only hurts herself. Brady going for a 6th is a team goal/accomplishment, not really an individual stat. 
 

Trying to get AV to 600 could be to the detriment of the team.

The detriment to the team happened when Luck retired.   This team had zero chance of playoff success.    Might as well let him get hits 600 and move on.

Have him kick #600 (tho it may take 4 games, haha), then have him “pull A muscle” and put the “kid” in.

 

  I knew it was bad when i heard people saying “pull a Vinny” in normal conversation. It reached pop culture status.

If it doesn't hurt the team, let him get his 600 and then pass the baton to Chase....

Just pass the baton and be done with it.  They have coddled him long enough.  They keep letting him embarrass himself.  Talk about feeding his big ego.  What a way to go out.

The guy has made a lot of kicks for  the colts    The animosity toward him is odd.

WOW this fanbase has turned cutthroat.

That changes with the wins and losses. 

As always, things are never as good as they seem just as they are not as bad as advertised.

Not sure where Vinny touched you at, but HE doesn’t decide when and if he plays. The coaches and organization do. So if Vinny does kick one more time, it’s because THEY wanted him to get that 600. 
 

It was like back in 09 when we COULD have had a perfect season and Irsay pulled the plug on it to avoid injuries. Clark and Wayne played long enough with Peyton to get them both 100 catches on the season. After that they were all pulled. Had nothing to do with them saying “my ego is so big that I HAVE to get this 100th catch.” 
 

You sir really need to pump the hate brakes.

Well said!! I thought about Clark getting his 100th catch then too. If he plays and if he kicks, then they obviously believe, at that point, that he is going to help the team more than hurt.

    • Not trying to be argumentative but you simplifying this issue is not the reality of it all. Not only are there 53 players plus 10 practice squad players (90 in training camp) there are how many others around a NFL team? Doctors, trainers, coaches, assistant coaches, coordinators and whoever else. Just the sheer space need to keep social distance is impossible.  All of these people have families away from a locker room so it's not like they are going to be quarantined.  How about the mental aspect of the players? Can the players put all of this out of their thought process when their mindset has to be 100% about the game itself?  We are always reminded about distractions in the locker room and how it can have a negative effect.  IMO this goes much deeper than what can and can't be controlled.   
    • Its funny you say that.... I feel the same......   Strange times......
    • I would tend to agree   There is significant $$ moving around so I believe there will be a season of some sort.... maybe shortened.....   I think the NFL union may hold the players back from competing until there is a resolution or some protection.   We are seeing a crazy jump in new cases in Texas. (My daughter just tested positive   she is ok now)    If we are in mid August and the new cases in Covid starts to drop AND the death rates are dropping we may see a season.....   If not..... we may see a start in Oct......   Who knows....    
    • There is a big difference. After they all get initially tested the chances of it spreading among players is low. With the amount of times they will be tested and the fact none are going to even get in the facility with even a slight cough until they are tested the chances of it spreading is pretty small. Yes initially there will be some. I don’t even believe there are all these asystematic  cases. I think there are a lot of false positives. Which is why the nfl has a different protocol for them.
