Its amazing to watch the absolute spiraling when there's no actual determination on whether he'll play or not and if any of the guys held out for "illness" are also in any danger of missing time.

Go away Covid... nobody likes you.

cam newton only missed one game with  covid it depends on if they have symptoms .    i know now they have a good treatment for the symptoms the treatment trump had .   It uses stem cells takes away the symptoms and people are recovering in a week .  most people cant afford it and end up suffering but the nfl pays top dollar for medical treatment on their players.

Ian Rappaport is reporting he is actually positive. If he has no symptoms the earliest he can return is the day before the Texans. Looks like we will be without him two games. We are going to have to get some people to step up. We really need him for the Texans too.

i dont think you go on that list for close contact you just have to go away from the team for 5 days .   from what i heard you have to test positive for covid and buckner def has covid.

Your right not close contact you do if they consider it a high risk contact.

If Buckner misses 2 games, we are in danger of losing two divisional games in a row. If that happens, we may not make the playoffs. Horrible timing for this to happen. :(

titans and texans both have more injuries then the colts .  i feel like colts can still win both .  autry will 100 percent be back for the texans and can play inside with lewis .    autry could be back this week if cleared .

I am going to assume Autry won’t be back because he clearly has symptoms since he was listed with a illness before going on the covid list. He was only put on the list a little over a week ago. Depends on when he showed symptoms I suppose. We aren’t going to get the usual pressure on Tannehill we usually do without those two guys. Somebody is going to have to step up in the middle. It could get ugly. Then to miss Buckner for Houston could be bad. Watson is playing great.

Relax, we split with these guys last season with Jacoby at QB.... and DeForest Buckner still in a 49ers uniform.

 

We can beat these guys if we play clean in all 3 phases.... and I think we WILL beat them. :thmup:

 

Colts     27

Titans   16

The good news is the titans oline is a little beat up so missing those two might end up being a wash.

I'm gonna bump my earlier post for a reminder that we BEAT Tennessee last year without Buckner and with Brissett under center.

 

Even our loss to them later in the year was tainted by that stinkin' blocked FG score.

 

Of course we will miss Buckner.... but we've proven we could beat them before he or Philip ever donned a Colts jersey.

The bigger loss is most likely going to be that Autry isn’t back to fill in.  Losing both of them could be huge. We need a big lead early so Henry is not running all over us in the fourth. We need long sustained drives to keep the defense off the field. 

 

What concerns me is Eberflus has a habit of going very vanilla when there is injuries. Let’s hope the offense plays lights out and those oline injuries aren’t significant.

Correct. And we need to win that game because if we lose, it is highly unlikely we win the last 5, but I think it is likely they win at least 3 since they play Hou. Jax and a floundering Det.  And they may even be favored against Cle.  That leaves GB for them to upset to sweep into the playoffs and could make it very tough for us to get in at all with our tie breaker status.  This is the more important than any further game this season.  Win and our path to the playoffs is so much more wide open.  But we will still likely need to win at least 3 games to get in unless TN craters somehow.  Those tiebreakers are really going to challenge us in wildcard scenarios. 

 

I could see Hou winning one against us, they usually do and they are on a major upswing.  Their offense is no joke and they do not depend at all on the run so our run defense is less effective obviously.  Pitt and the Raiders are also no joke and both games are away.  This is a critical one if we hope to win the division. If we lose, finishing 9-7 is realistically still in play and I don't see TN losing 3 out of 5.  In fact, I don't see them losing more than 2 of 5.  If we win they'll likely have to win 4 of 5 or sweep to catch us for the division.  I called the Raiders game as being key to make the playoffs and go 10-6 before the season started. With a loss, the desperate WC tie breaker situation, that is especially true.  It's possible for a 10-6 team to miss the playoffs even with the extra team.  Cleveland will almost surely get 10 wins with their easy finish.  Baltimore is also likely.  (Their divisional matchups are really favorable this time around).  Then again maybe we'll sweep the season and get the #1 seed.  Pitt still has to play 5 current playoff teams in their final 6 and KC has to play 3.  

 

Just speculation as always, but that is the fun of a football message board.  Go Colts!

 

Agree that this game is almost a must win. Problem is a loss gives us 4 conference losses and the rest of our games are all in conference. A division loss to Tenn would pretty much guarantee we lose any subsequent tie breaker . Agree that the LV game is also huge. If we win that won , it would at least give us that tie breaker , ... But maybe not as there would be like 3-4 teams in a tie for 2 playoff spots. So IMO possible we could end up tied with LV and still lose the tie breaker even with a win against them. Thing is we swept the NFC , so all the losses will be in conference which sucks in the tie break scenarios .

I feel the need to reiterate this. We've beat TN without Buckner and while he's an amazing force on the inside, we've got some solid depth at DL that can step in. I think Grover and Stallworth can shut down the inside run game pretty well and rotating Lewis (potentially Autry) inside will help bolster the interior pressure

 

I'm also assuming with TN starting a 3rd string T, they'll need to consistently give him help, which should give the rest of the DL one-on-one mmatches.

 

At this point, we should be wishing Buckner and his family well, then just believing in our DL depth.

For me it’s win the division or no playoffs. It’s that simple. Yes TN still has to play green bay but it is not good at all if we lose to them Sunday.  

 

The Browns are having a issue with covid so we will see if that hurts them. Raiders are playing Atlanta. I could see the raiders losing but they really are a very good team so I doubt it. Some of these teams have s very easy schedule to finish.

We still had Autry.

Yeah about that....their team from last year was totally different from this year....their o-line has been playing better this year than last year but we will see

Looks like we are doomed. I hope Jim, Chris and Frank throw in the towel. No team in the history of the NFL has won a game with a few key players missing. Never. 

Are you saying we should start resting our team for the playoffs? Maybe we could bring Jim Caldwell back as an interim coach?

I hope things are finally clicking for Taylor and he can continue what he did against GB. That would  go along way keeping our defense rested .  Turay could be a wildcard if we can force them into 3rd and long. He actually had a good game Sunday with the limited snaps he had.

The monoclonal antibodies by Eli Lilly just received an EUA, and Regeneron’s Casirivimab and Imdevimab Antibody Cocktail for COVID-19 is First Combination Therapy to Receive FDA Emergency Use Authorization. It is the first treatment of any kind to have prospectively confirmed and statistically significant anti-viral activity against SARS-CoV-2 virus.

Probably because they can't without his permission

 

The team coaches or front office probably could-

 

"Covered entities under HIPAA are health care clearinghouses, certain health care providers, and health plans. ... Neither employers nor other group health plan sponsors are defined as covered entities under HIPAA."

 

So the team doctor, trainers, physical therapists, etc. cannot disclose the info to the public, but they can inform the team (Owner, GM, coaches) who are employers. They are not bound by HIPAA, but often don't spell out such issues anyway.

    • Watson has never came close to throwing 40 TD's in a season, he had 33 this past season which was his best by far. Luck had 40 in 2014 and 39 in 2018. Not that the TD stat is everything but just pointing that out. Also Luck went into Houston during the 2018 playoffs when Watson had a fully loaded team and Luck spanked them on his hometurf. Luck was better so we will have to agree to disagree 
    • Mugabi was very solid, hit so hard and won a Silver medal at 1980 Olympics  (Lost to Aldama from Cuba who Sugar Ray beat for gold 4 years earlier). His bout vs Hagler was first fight shown on Showtime. He had a good career after that fight and won a world title though didnt hold it long.   Mustafa Hamsho was another whom brawled and banged with Hagler. Wilfred Benitez was another one I enjoyed during that time, turned pro at 15 and won world title at 17..
    • Nah. In Watson's 4 years, he had 3 years of better QBR ratings than Luck ever had. Same with Passer Rating. Watson has a higher TD% and lower INT%. Better AVG and ANY/A too. And Watson's rushing TD avg/game is almost twice that of Luck's.    Luck was good. Watson was just easily better.
    • I know you believe it is accurate.   You wouldn’t have posted it otherwise.   I’d explain the other point of view but someone would come along accusing me of trying to get everyone to think as I do.   Nothing could be further from the truth, a difference of opinion is what makes the world go around.    I’d simply say this...  our difference of opinion is the gap of the Grand Canyon.    It’s not a small difference, it’s a gigantic difference.   So I’m fine with you believing what you do.  There are others here who share the same opinion as you, so you’re not alone.    So keep being Brash and Bold.  You do you.   Good luck!     
    • Brandon Graham is another good comp. Good all around player who gets a lot of pressures, but doesn't have the finishing ability of a great pass rusher. He's never had a double digit sack season, and even in the years when he's close, he still has an average PRP.    I used Trey Flowers as a comp because of his three cone (Graham 7.01; Flowers 7.34; Lawson 7.46). And because he was the hot commodity when he was a free agent a couple years ago, and there was talk of his being able to produce more sacks in a different situation, and that hasn't been the case. I wanted Flowers, but I wouldn't sign a player with this profile for big money. Lawson might be the best edge on the roster, but that's more a reflection of the lack of good edges on the roster. He'd be a 7-8 sack guy.   Just coming back to pressures/disruption, I think it's very dangerous to not account for the wide range of outcomes on plays where the QB is pressured. In general, QB performance drops when the QB is pressured, but the results are very scattered. Some games, the QB is under a lot of pressure, but is still very productive and makes a lot of plays.    Look at all the plays Watson made against our defense, and his biggest plays came when he was pressured. We got a ton of pressure on him, and actually converted a good percentage into sacks, but in two games there were 30 plays on which he was pressured, but wasn't sacked. He completed 64% of his pressured attempts for 12 yards per, and passer rating of 89. Watson is a special playmaker, but it illustrates the point that not all pressures are negative plays for the offense. In fact, a pressure that doesn't get finished can easily hurt the defense.   On the other hand, a player who has a lot of sacks but a relatively low amount of pressures is probably a fluke. No one is going to convert 40% of their pressures into sacks over an extended period of time, so if a guy has 25 pressures and 12 sacks, that's probably an outlier. Justin Houston and Denico Autry don't get enough pressures to expect them to be 8-9 sack players every year.    If you could provide context on all 64 of Lawson's pressures in 2020, you'll probably see a good half of them were hits right after the QB released the ball, or he got a step on the blocker and maybe a hand on the QB, but the QB moved and Lawson couldn't bend/change direction enough to finish the play. Probably five are unblocked reps.    And in general, when you have a guy with a lot of pressures, but low sacks, it's because he can't finish consistently. And that guy doesn't become a good finisher in Year 5. Maybe there's an outlier 10 or 11 sack season here or there -- Erik Walden had an 11 sack season at one point -- but he's not going to transform into a really dangerous pass rusher out of the blue. If you pay big money for that guy, you're going to be disappointed.
