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.

    • More than me enjoying...  I know YOU enjoy them.   As for April, what happens is more info leaks out.   Clearly some of that (most if that?) is a smoke screen.   But sometimes good info gets out.   About guys like Mixon and Sweet and the big Miss State DL grabbed by Tennessee.  That information is always helpful.  Just things to keep an eye out for....   The key is having fun and don’t box yourself in!  
    • I just don't feel like anything changes come April. You know what the remaining needs are for the colts and where prospects were most likely land.   Strange. Draft calculate said it was equal value.    I mentioned Higgins can be a reach, but the draft is unpredictable. More teams go after Ts then IOL and there are a lot of good Ts in this draft. It's either Hurts or Gordon. I'm just not a fan of the other QBs and I feel we can still use his level of athletism instead of just having the QB ride the bench. Oline depth is a big need. We really don't have options if god forbid someone on the line gets hurt. Breeland is still a good option and we still have Doyle and Allie-Cox   Glad you enjoy my Mocks!
    • There is an Antonio Gates article in Yahoo Sports, says in considered signing with the Colts in 2019.  I know his age is up there, 39, will be 40 at the start of the season.  It mentioned that he has retired mindset but maybe Ballard and Rivers can sway him to give it one more year.  With the Rivers to Gates was one the best connections.  He could be a valuable 3rd receiver for the Colts and Rivers.  I think drafting a TE in the 2nd or 3rd round should be considered as well. 
    • This all reminds me of Jachai Polite last year, not being polite at all with his interviews, lol.
