To be fair, he was already mid suplex when the whistle was blown.


If the ref had swallowed his whistle and choked to death on it on the sidelines it was still a penalty. 
 

And as a trained professional wrestler whoever it was that took it is lucky he didn’t break his damn neck. I’ve never understood why teams don’t teach players to bump like we do. It would save a lot of injuries in a season. There’s a reason wrestlers are able to do that 2 dozen times a night 4 nights a week for 25+ years, even into their senior years. Teach them to protect themselves.

Your Indianapolis Colts (3-2) look to return to winning ways when they face the Cincinnati Bengals (1-3-1) at home this Sunday. They will play this one without TE Mo Alie-Cox (Out), T Chaz Green (Out)

Keeping a player down when a team is running hurry up is unsportsmanlike conduct refs,  you’ve called every tricky tack call you can make against the Colts call the obvious ones on the bengals please.

Ahh Blackmon... fast becoming a gamechanger

Jesus fox’s coverage is awful. Please someone make this stop...

Agreed, the only highlights they showed were from the Bengals. Didn’t show any of those great throws from Rivers and unpack the come back

Harris rocking the #12 officially puts the final nail in Luck’s Colts career?

I think in Ballards mind that nail was there the day he retired.  I’ve said from the way Ballard has talked about luck even if he came back Ballard wouldn’t welcome him.  Irsay may overrule him but I don’t think Ballard wants luck back.

With our history of injuries I’d try anything.

If you watch walker on that play it tells the story before the flag even came out he’s doing the what are you doing thing with his arms.  They knew.

I agree. Ballard was not happy at all.

I know. I isn't really about the Johnson vs Hilton matchup.

 

Just using him as a reference point.

 

Are we in developmental time though, or win now? 

 

I think Johnson gives us better chance in the present.

 

If the season is a wash, get Patmon and Dulin in there.

All teams "develop" their youth during the season. It's not a case where developing guys means you aren't trying to win now. Fountain and Dulin have been open when given snaps (when not clear out or rub decoys), and are both 2 of 3. 

 

Like I said, its simply mixed feelings. Not sure why you have an issue with that. I'm happy Johnson is contributing and playing well. I'm not cheering against him.

 Arms straight out, palms down, and most importantly tuck your chin to your chest. Make sure you land with your feet flat. If you can’t, keep them in the air, you don’t want to smack your heels. Distributes the impact across your shoulders and arms. I’ve never taken a bump and been hurt. May get the wind knocked out on some of the harder or faster ones, but even that is rare. I’ve never understood why they don’t teach players to land like that when the situation arises.

it makes sense too and I'm not even mad at it

 

Same, it's going to be an interesting phase of the league as the last few of the 'old guard' ride off into the sunset. I think we had a core era of the likes of Manning/Manning/Brady/Brees/Rivers and we're transitioning into the next set of franchise guys.

    • For what little it's worth,  I don't know the website where you found the measurements,  but I think Munoz arrived at USC in the mid-70's around 280.    I think he played his entire career at 300 plus...      Same with Reggie White...   I think he played his Green Bay years around 300....
    • I want a LT too.    But I'm not sure we will get one tht is ready to go on Day 1.    Do you want Carson Wentz to have to perform with a below average rookie LT?      I don't think so.     I still expect to draft one.    But that guy may need some time, like a year or so.  
    • This happened in the last 24 hours or so...   Draftek, using projections from OverTheCap.com has predicted the compensatory picks in R's 3-7.   I'm not sure if this includes bonus picks awarded for teams who lost Coaches of Color to other franchises.   Was that supposed to kick in this year or next?    I don't see that reflected yet.   So, that may be still in the pipeline.   Either way.....   take a look.    There is also a simple click to look at what is being called a newer or more frequently used model known as the Rich Hill model.   It appears to be endorsed by Bill Belichick.      It is, what it is.....    same idea and concept,  just somewhat different point valuations.    Worth taking a look.    Enjoy!   https://www.drafttek.com/NFL-Trade-Value-Chart.asp?RequestTeam=ind
    • Yep, just like in an all-time draft for example. Lets say you have 6 people participating in that exercise. All 6 will take a QB in round 1 as in perhaps: 1st pick. Tom Brady (Team 1) 2nd pick. Joe Montana (Team 2) 3rd pick. Peyton Manning (Team 3) 4th pick. Johnny Unitas (Team 4) 5th pick. John Elway (Team 5) 6th pick. Aaron Rodgers (Team 6) -every team is set at QB at that point, in a snake draft, Team 6 picks 1st in round 2 to keep it fair and at that point who knows what Team 6 will do based on value of pick??   Maybe for round 2: 7th pick. (Team 6) Jerry Rice WR or do you take a LT like Anthony Munoz or a Pass Rusher like Lawrence Taylor or Reggie White? Lets say Team 6 goes with Rice, then   8th pick. (Team 5) perhaps take Anthony Munoz LT here at 6'6 280 pounds with long arms you would have a guy that can protect your QB for a decade. Then again some may want to go Randy Moss WR or Marvin Harrison WR here or a Pass Rusher??   9th pick. (Team 4) I would say Lawrence Taylor OLB 6'3 240 pounds here based on value or Reggie White DE 6'5 290 pounds, right?
