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

Assume the virus is everywhere and make sure you wash your hands.  Corona Virus can live on your hands for 9 hours.  Imagine all the people out there touching things......and then you touch the same t

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.

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.

    • Rivers has made over $250M in his career. Last I heard, he was driving a pickup truck and his wife a minivan. I doubt money is what motivates him, but if he was interested in a broadcasting career, could easily make $17M like Tony Romo. 
    • So true.. Lol.   That was what my post said a couple up from yours. He played 17, got one last shot, it didn't work and he walked away with 25M extra. I'm sure he can see he was getting old. He wasn't going to be faster and more fit in 9 months.. Lol
    • That would eat half our cap. We really couldn't re-sign or make many moves. Just small ones.
    • I don't think we were 'lucky' to be a postseason participant by any means.  We won 11 games and we beat ourselves in at least 3 of our 5 losses.  We also beat ourselves in the 1st round of the playoffs.   Ballard has assembled a very good team here.  IMO, we're more unlucky that we didn't go 13-3, 14-2, or 15-1 than we are 'lucky' to have made the playoffs.  We essentially beat ourselves against the Jags week 1 and Pittsburgh week 16.  Arguably we beat ourselves against the Browns and the Ravens as well... the only game we lost where I felt like we had no shot was the 2nd go round with the Titans and that was a game where we were missing DeFo, Oke and several others.     We'll probably never know.  My guess is there was some mutual stuff going on... maybe Ballard told Rivers "hey we'd love to have you back, but we are looking to upgrade or find a long term solution... if that falls through, you're our next best option" and Rivers said "hey, thanks, I don't think we'd beat the Bills or KC with me at QB anyway and I don't really feel like dealing with the rigors of rehabbing my broken foot all off season to get ready for another year of playing... thanks for the opportunity."     Not a huge miss at all.  @GoColts8818 summed it up pretty good - very rarely do 4th round QBs become stud/franchise QBs.  Eason came out of college early, he's still very young... many experts said before last year's draft that Eason has as good of physical skills as all the other QBs in the draft,  but would have done himself good to stay for his senior year.     As a 4th rounder, if Eason becomes a solid backup, that's a great pick.  If we get Stafford and Eason has several years of learning from Rivers and then Stafford and his mental game and preparation match up to his physical skills and he becomes a quality starter for us.. that's cherries on top.       Or, it may be that Rivers talked to his wife and family and said "Hey, I'm looking at getting foot surgery, I played the last chunk of the season with a broken bone in my foot.  If I want to play at a high level next year, I will need to go into a pretty extensive/high intensity rehab program soon after surgery soon thereafter, which means I'll be in the training facility like a full time job... or I can hang up my cleats and take the rehab a bit slower and get to hang out with you all...  what do you think?"  and they said "You're a HOFer and a millionaire whether or not you go back for another year, why don't you just hang up the cleats and spend more time with us."     I wouldn't say it's whiny... but you were pretty rude.  The OP was nice enough to share the link.. no need to lambast him for it... could've easily said "Any chance you could share the start point of the clip you mention? I would appreciate it."  Rather than using ?!? and ! and 'Goodness gracious!' or 'sigh..... ugghhhhh...'  
    • Yeah if TY walks, I’m expecting them to sign a veteran in FA for sure. Ballard can’t leave this WR corp it’s very underwhelming. Potential, but unproven.
