TY is safe, he can’t catch anything this year.     j/k

Seems premature and frankly just ridiculous to point the finger for Colts positive tests at OBJ. But it is what I expect from you

The browns had covid obj tested I heard it could be our defense 

The browns should be fined letting obj play with covid against the colts

Colts are in a bubble the only contact was with the browns . Obj gets sick a couple days after the game .  I blamed the browns for not testing not obj

Colts aren't in a bubble. No team is. OBJ was sent home yesterday. Obviously, someone from the Colts tested positive yesterday. To say it was one team or the other at this point is silly.

I agree jared but I doubt it'll happen that way.  I think we're seeing the beginning of the end of the football season to be honest.  what's that, 7 different teams with COVID outbreaks in the same WEEK?????  How long can we even keep this up?

Frank and ballard are running a tight ship . I would be willing to be it was the browns lack of testing .  We will see the nfl does the research and caught the titans breaking the rules which caused the spread.   I doubt frank would do that as he is a great coach.   If I am wrong I'll eat crow .  Certain teams are more laxed on the rules .

The titans had 20 players get covid they just played.   Money is very important to the owners.

All players go home to family. Families have kids that go to school.

Indiana's positives have been going way up if you haven't noticed. 

It can happen to any team.

This is really disappointing.  The league should have done a lot more to limit contact earlier and through the season.  
 

I doubt the colts have the authority to have a bubble without the entire league doing it and union approval.
 

 Young men are going to take risks.  That’s what young men do.

Rivers has 9 kids. Would be easy for any one of them to contract it at school and bring it home.  In San Diego they home-schooled but his kids are attending school in Indiana.

I thought they were in a bubble like the nba where the players and their families stayed at hotels near the colts stadium.  I thought away games the players went into the other teams hotel set up i thought the players and families were never in contact with the outside.    I just looked it up you are right .   The way the nfl set this up was horrible. it should be a bubble like the  nba .have one stadium and no practice and teams play at .  With 15 games a week they could rotate between friday night and Monday night with all teams sharing one stadium.

Well at least we know 2 who are not positive lol

Then the season is over if this gets worse unless they take a 2 month break like the nba.

Why. We've seen both CFB and NFL teams test positive, and simply delay their games. There's nothing that prohibits them from adding and extra week or so to the end of the season for make up games, etc.. It's not the end of the world.

I hope so I love football . What if every team gets a bad outbreak and teams run out of players to use .that is my fear .

Community spread is high in Indiana. It doesn’t matter how tight of a ship

you run.

We've already had teams with positives, that have recovered and started playing again. No reason to freak out at this point.

Maybe. I’d be surprised if they are in public schools or not in school remotely.  I highly doubt it’s rivers.  


More likely a young guy going out.  Could be staff members too.

It's bound to happen to every team eventually. But yes, a lot of these players have kids that attend school which bring home the virus from other kids. Nobody can out run this virus, its at your heels everywhere you go.

At what point did you hear or see or think this? Because that’s as far from the truth as possible.

    • This. Though I could probably be talked into a 1st for Stafford.     But yeah, CB is in a REALLY tough spot. Layer on the fact that he doesn't have a    longer term answer at any of Edge rusher, L-OT and WR-1 on the roster and he has   his work cut out for him.   
    • Anyone think there’s a chance he leaves San Fran? They’ve got a lot of decisions to make and can’t franchise tag him, as well as a very limited amount of cap space. We could certainly outbid them.    Imagine a left side of him and Big Q with Jonathan Taylor running behind them. We would easily have the best line in the game. 
    • In Ballard I trust. He is intuitive and a consensus builder. This is a great opportunity to use this decision to refine your offensive strategy. Remember, Reich loves the RPO and what he could do with a mobile QB.
    • Ballard didn't say it was definite.   He didn't rule it out.   He just said as of this minute.    I think he's hoping to find out in April and May.      He still might end up deciding Eason is OK as the back-up.   I was only trying to impress upon those in the "Throw Jacob Eason in and see what we have" crowd that Ballard has crushed that dream for 2021.    But I wouldn't rule out 2022....  at least not yet.  
    • TY - 2Y/22M - he can still play but he’s not Tyreek Hill taking the top of defenses anymore, and with his disappearing act at the beginning of the year I’m afraid to sign him any longer or with too much guaranteed. Partly for sentimental reasons I want him to stay, but I do think he’s still got some juice.    Mack - 1Y/1M - Likable player but due to his position and injury, no way can I justify giving him much more than vet minimum.    Houston - 1Y/8M - Fell off a lot this year compared to his first year. Still our best edge player, basically by default and I’d be hoping we can get a more 2019 performance out of him at arguably our weakest position on the team.    Autry - Walk. He will price himself out with an inflated sense of value because he’s gotten decent sack numbers, but he is the definition of JAG and I’d only keep him if he agreed to a minimum contract.    Rhodes - 1Y/6M - He was a stud this year. If we could guarantee that he won’t revert back to his last two years in Minnesota I would be willing to go longer and higher. With how much he fell off after getting paid the first time, I’m not giving him a long term deal.    Walker - 1Y/2M - He was playing a very small percentage of downs at the end of the year so I’m keeping him less based on ability and more based on leadership and football savvy.    Hooker - Walk. Both sides need to just move on. I’d keep him at minimum too but I think both sides want a fresh start. Also a little miscast in the current defense so no reason to force a square peg into a round hole.    Brissett - 1Y/5M - Too big of a fan of Brissett as a man to want to see him leave. I don’t want him starting but he’s a very solid backup and compared to the 20M we gave him last year, I can live with his salary being at 1/4 of that this year.    Pascal and MAC both tendered at 2.24M. I want to bring in Kenny Golladay or Allen Robinson and Pascal is JAG so he’s not falling into my future plans much. I’m a big fan of MAC and I wouldn’t mind seeing him play the Jack Doyle role. He’s a better blocker, has better hands, and is more explosive.    I may be lowballing some guys but I’d hate to fall into the trap of overvaluing our guys and keeping them just because you want to keep your own. Unfortunately, I think the five most important positions on the team also coincide with our five weakest positions on the team; QB, WR, CB, DE, and LT. Fortunately we’ve got a good cap situation and this is the perfect year to be needing a QB.
