Rigoberto Sanchez has cancerous tumor (Merge) (Update: Page 2)


Recommended Posts

What a brutal week for the Colts. And it ends with the worst of all of those news. Here's to hoping Rigo's treatment is successful and he recovers fully. Kind of puts the whole frustration of the game yesterday into perspective.

The good news is the doctors think they found it very early so hopefully he will only need surgery and be back to kicking balls for the Colts in the near future and not because I am worried about how this impacts the Colts I just want Rigo healthy!

Yikes. The timing for that couldn’t have been much worse. With the way some teams are struggling with outbreaks that could have gotten scary. Glad to hear they caught it, and have a plan of action in place already. Nothing but the best of wishes for him, he’s a great dude and I can’t wait to see him get back to pinning teams inside the 20 again soon!

Many thoughts and prayers for Rigo and his family and also for the doctors who will be performing the surgery. Prayers for a complete recovery !!

 

Stay strong Rigo, you have lots of fans thinking of you and praying for you.

Per NFL rules we do not have  enough time to sign a punter and have him eligible for the Texans game...here are Hot Rod's high school punting stats (He was all state)

What your forgetting is the colts knew about this all last week. This is one reason Rigo still played.  Someone has most likely already been going through testing as early as last week.  You just haven’t heard yet because they won’t be signed until they are signed. If Hot Rod can punt that is great but probably not ideal.

 

With th the covid protocols and 16 person PS it would of been smart to keep a extra punter and FG kicker on the PS. Imagine is Hot Rod came down with Covid late in the week and couldn’t play and we had no FG kicker.

Ive never read they knew about it last week, earliest I could find was Saturday (Hope it is true but couldnt find it anywhere) and no report the contacted anyone to put in protocol that I have seen (Again sure hope I am wrong, hoping for M King).

    • Moncrief had a higher ceiling imo. But I actually like Pittman because of his floor. Colts need good WRs...I just think they need more of them. An alpha WR1 would be ideal...but that's easier said than done. Just looking at the FA group...there are going to be options...and I also think there will be WRs available via trade.    Originally, I wanted to draft another WR this year...but I don't think they will be able to do that now...so getting a proven option will be imperative. If they don't address WR with an outside option...I will be very surprised. 
    • I'm still thinking we're taking a LT with the 1st.    Though to play along with this speculation game, I'd take Jones. 
    • I think they need WR and TE big time. The Colts are a dome team...the offense should be full of weapons...not a bunch of "ifs."   Setting aside QB...which is the priority...the Colts pass catchers also don't really match up to the teams they have to beat to win a SB.    I love the WR group in the draft...but I also think it's going to open up the FA and trade market as well. The Colts should be adding a proven vet WR this offseason.   At TE...the average age is ~29. Doyle is a TE2 at most at this point. I wouldn't be surprised if hung it up after this season (definitely next). MAC is an ERFA...and while I am sure they will tender him a contract...they didn't give him the opportunity to take the next step this year...so there's no way to go into next season with him as the top TE. Then there's Burton. I was happy to be wrong about him coming back...but he doesn't really offer anything they couldn't get elsewhere. He's basically   So basically...you have a pair of TE2s and no real dynamic threat. This offseason could see some younger TE options become available in FA/trade...and it's a pretty good draft group. So I hope they take advantage.
    • See, that's the thing I'm thinking about with Urban. Being a head coach in the NFL isn't a normal job. It's 24/7, eat, sleep and breath. That can really be taxing on a person's health, and well, Urban's left positions before citing issues with health and family. I can see him completely transforming the Jags, making them even a winning organization, and then suddenly retiring.    It's one heckuva risk the Jags are taking. But, it could pay off in a big way. 
    • I agree with this, but I would add that I see Pascal as a solid #2 to play alongside another #2 that matches dictate who is the guy that game. Not trying to mince words, I just think he is better than a 3rd WR, which is often considered the after thought.
