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.

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.

    • Colts have won one playoff game in 6 seasons. Some more losing seasons and this team is no longer even in the top half of NFL franchises. They would be mostly irrelevant. I can’t imagine Irsay going for that.   Ballard is definitely safe...but this is year 5 and I am assuming there is a bit more urgency than just waiting for the perfect opportunity to come along.
    • Supplement with draft picks. Ballard has had a few rookies playing significant snaps every year...so we could assume the same this year. Plus...you have some  younger players who could take a step forward next season.  Also...there’s player for player swaps that can be explored.   I think you could easily replace everyone on that list except Houston and Rhodes. And I would keep MAC as a cheap TE2.   A big FA contract will put a strain on the cap...which is why a rookie QB would be huge. But I also think this is their chance to spend on a premium non-QB position or two.   But another way to burn cap space is to re-sign a bunch of outgoing vets...essentially paying more money for the same team components (in many cases). If that was a list of FAs...I would probably be interested in a few of them at most. But that’s just me...and I am sure other teams will be interested in each of them on some level...so this seems like a great chance to shift some cap space to quality (instead of quantity) and accrue some comp draft capital...even if it’s mid-late Day 3 picks.
    • Ok.   Appreciate the response.   I thought you were going to say they were typo’s, but apparently not.   Alright, we see it differently.  Nothing wrong with that.  It’s what makes the world go around.    Thanks again....
    • Some team will gamble on Hooker. He will only be 25 and he’s a former lottery pick with huge talent. A $7M AAV would put him just inside the top 15...just ahead of guys like Ricardo Allen, Vonn Bell and Tre Boston. I think a team would look to lock in a second year team option of sorts...but maybe not. Either way...he should have suitors and will have an opportunity to at least get a good one-year deal to rebuild value. Edit: Obviously this is assuming Hooker has recovered and can pass a physical. If not, then he probably gets half that and possibly might not even be signed until during the season.    Rhodes was a top 10 player last season...at a premium position. He produced a ton of value on his cheap pillow contract...and now he gets to cash in. With a very good track record (even at his age), he is going to command a nice 2-3 year deal to finish out his career. A $12M AAV would pay him just outside that top 10 range for CBs...and this deal is similar to the one that Haden signed with PIT after having a late-career resurgence.  Knowing Ballard...I am sure he would structure it in a way that they could get out after one year if Rhodes fell apart. But given the current state of the CBs...they almost have to re-sign him.
