Injuries issues finally being addressed

Recommended Posts

I still wonder what the status of our field turf is. Is it an improved state of the art field turf designed to cut down on injuries? Sometimes those artificial field turf fields can be harder surfaces than real grass, which could easily result in more injuries.

I think we literally just have bad luck with this stuff.

Short, but good article, and thanks for posting. 

 

While I agree injuries are an issue, 2019 wasn't nearly as bad as 2018 (as suggested by the rankings listed). Even if we did improve from 30th to 21st, I still don't like being in the bottom half. Sounds like he's made changes to a lot, but has left the medical staff in tact. Perhaps it's time for a change there too.

 

For those interested, mangameslost.com does a great job through the season of reporting impact. While their website is a pay site, they typically publish at minimum the weekly charts for free.

 

Here's the NFL regular season chart. It shows both pure games lost (left to right axis), but also measure player quality lost (size of bubble), with team wins shown on the vertical axis.

 

Of note, SF, KC, NEm, Seattle, and Houston were off worse off than Indy.

“We’re having too many,” Ballard accurately states.

 

I've been banging this drum for a long time now.  I believe the Colts have always realized that this is an issue, as well.  There are some folks here that just simply refused to believe it - that old "all teams have injuries" routine lol. 

 

When you're in the bottom half of the league for 10 consecutive years, and near dead-last in 4 of those years, there's a problem.  There just is.

 

I would love to see the injury breakdown in terms of location (home/away) and type of surface.

    • Reich seems to be a very positive, classy person   Have you heard him trash ...... anyone, ever?   When discussing Ebron.......  no trashing ..... just that they were going in a different direction   I think with Reich, as this type of communicator, you have to measure words and actions to get the complete story.   With JB, The only negative conversation, was that we needed some improved QB play. Other than that it was always very positive.   You would think from press conferences, that JB is only a step away from being a Super bowl QB, which he isn’t    Reich isn’t a liar, he is just a person that communicates ALWAYs in a positive way.   but....  compare the actions   JB we love you but we are drafting a QB, in round 4. JB we love you but we are bringing in an aging QB to start. JB we love you but are keeping a long shot QB on the active roster (CK)   If you are JB, you like the kind words and support but you are getting the message.   We DONT want you to be the starter QB for the Colts...... HAS to be the message that he is getting.   I don’t see JB on the roster next year.     To Patrick Miller   I think folks like to see a long shot make it..... we tend to root for the underdog as a matter of cause.....   Dion Cain, Mike Hart, Chad Kelly, etc, etc,    Is Kelly a starter in this league?  Probably not   Will he be a starter for the Colts?   Probably not   The QB room in 2020 camp will be packed   But......  I STILL hope Kelly does very well in camp.....     I could see a 2022 Eason starter with CK as backup     Lastly, some of the crew is being a bit tough on Chloe..... I agree with 80% of what she posts....    It does change some, but that’s ok......     I am wrong a bunch, so who am I to throw stones?          
    • Getting Houston was addressing that need.    Welcome to the forum by the way!
    • I don’t know, Jordan is the one who introduced Tiger to “those ladies” that caused his divorce, got him hit with a club and began his eventual career slide. I don’t think that would be a good pairing. 
    • I understand why CS has the rookies ranked low but feel that anyone who is a seat filler or not expected to be a starter should not be listed
    • I know of the Simms family since Phil is a Kentucky boy and went to a Ky college
