No... this will be me

From WTNP Episode 3:  We want a guy who wants to be coached, wants to get better, has high character, and has something you can point to that makes him unique. Is it me?  Or do these traits all a

To be fair, Rivers had a terrible season before coming to Indy and Reich said he could fix Rivers and he did.    Before that Reich got Andrew going on a return from injury and a long time wi

is it random?

Thought it was every other week... Might be completely wrong also.

For those with a subscription to The Athletic, they just published a behind the scenes article on our beloved behind the scenes series. Hah!

That article is great.  I hope the organization promotes or keeps knickerbocker on staff!

Yeah im thinking the same.

Maybe he had some skin cancer issues or something and had them removed. Otherwise that was kind of weird.

That was my first thought.

Episode was not really draft related, centered around Carson and TY for the most part. 

As expected with the end of the first episode.

Great to really see that connection and get to know him more. Beautiful daughter! Makes me miss those days when mine was little... Enjoy it Carson, it goes by way too fast.

Yeah, looks similar to what my wife’s eyes looked like after her skin cancer surgery. Hopefully he’s okay.

I am sure he is. They can catch that early now:

 

TY’s laugh at the end had me rolling.

Wow, seeing Carson and Frank absolutely GUSH about each other has me super excited for next year lol. I knew they were tight, but

This episode makes it seem like more of a Reich/Wentz bromance than a carefully and logically crafted player acquisition. And the bromance appears to be a lot more about religion than football. That's worrying to me.

To an extent I can see why you'd be worried. But also, look at it as, every quarterback who's played under Reich has had a great year. So the Synergy and chemistry is most definitely a good thing alot of times. Plus they're realistically tied at the hip, if it doesn't work, Reich will be gone too.

Technically it is since we gave up a 3rd this year for Wentz.

Pretty indifferent to the Reich/Wentz relationship but if it makes both of them more successful then I welcome it. Best part of the episode for me was TY. Guy has been a stud for us for so many years and to see him excited again makes me happy. He was crushed when Andrew left and his production obviously suffered but I really do believe him and Wentz could do some fun things.

 

Will be exciting to watch, let's hope for a fantastic year! We are certainly setup for it with the talent and front office support this team has.

Just because they didn't share with you what Frank thinks of Wentz as a football player, and what they plan to do to bring him back to the high level of play he had in the past....    doesn't mean there isn't all that information somewhere.   They just didn't share it.   

 

If you want to not think much of this episode of the series,  that's fine.   Others seem disappointed too.   I just wouldn't let it bother me that they didn't break down more of the football relationship and aspect of the decision to trade for him.    I don't think it's an issue to worry about yet.   It may be someday....   but I don't think there's reason to worry just based on this one video chapter.

 

Just my own view of this....   your mileage may vary....

I loved this episode.  To be honest, I wasn't impressed with the first one.  JMO.  That laughter by TY is priceless.  I'm excited about the Wentz to Hilton connection.  Looking forward to our offense this year!!

Why would that worry you?

He’s saying that reich possibly pounded the table to get Wentz in more based on his fondness for the person rather than based on the likelihood that Wentz will have a resurgence in his career.

 

Which would be worrying indeed if that is the case. But we don’t know that.

    • His breakout game came against the Eagles mid way through his rookie season.  Indy was a big underdog that day and killed the Eagles in Philly. 
    • For those that didn't see it, here's the exclusionary flow chart of the surgeries from 1958 - 2016       I count two studies (one with 95 cases, the other with 80, one of which Dr.Parekh was involved in) having a nearly identical average of a 72.5% return to sport rate-   "One previous study investigated RTS and postoperative performance for players who underwent Achilles tendon repair in the NFL. The prior study demonstrated an RTS of 72.5% in 80 NFL athletes. The RTS from this prior study is nearly identical to the results of the present study with an RTS of 72.4% in 95 NFL athletes." "Following Achilles tendon repair, less than 75% of players returned to the NFL. Postoperative career length was 1 season shorter than matched controls. No difference was observed in the number of games per season played com-pared to matched controls. Postoperative performance scores were significantly worse for RBs and LBs compared to preoperative, and LBs had significantly worse postoperative performance when compared to matched controls."   and the very small PARS mini open study at 78%.   I see a trend of some surgeons trying to move from open technique to a limited or mini-open technique (as opposed to a pure percutaneous repair).   Dr. Purekh:   “but the problem with a pure percutaneous solution is that you can’t see anything, so you can actually pierce the nerve.” The miniature-open technique requires only a 3 cm incision while the traditional approach of surgically treating Achilles tendon ruptures required an 8 cm to 12 cm incision. “One of the biggest issues with the traditional model was long-term immobilization, and there was about an 8% to 10% chance of an infection or wound healing problem,” he notes. “The benefit of doing the mini-open technique is that your incisions are much smaller, so your wound complication rate postoperatively is under 1% or 0.5%."   This minimally invasive miniature-open technique is heavily dependent on special tools (PARS Achilles Jig System by Anthrex, Inc.: Naples, FL; Achillon Achilles Tendon Suture System by Integra LifeSciences Corp.: Plainsboro, NJ), and can add in costs up to $800 to 1,000 per use.   Dr. Selene G. Parekh, of Duke University, has pioneered a minimally invasive mini-open technique that does not use specialized equipment, and has adapted the miniature-open technique to require only standard operating room tools, such as surgical clamps and forceps, etc. to be able to grab the Achilles tendon and pass suture.   “You don't have to worry about a special instrument lining up properly in order to grab the tendon, so the whole procedure now takes about 20 to 30 minutes whereas traditionally it took 45 minutes to an hour,” he says.   While mini-open repair is available at Duke (and elsewhere), only Dr. Parekh is performing Achilles repair via this new technique without the need of special instruments.  I'm interested to see what types of improved outcomes become apparent besides the time and cost savings up front.
