Can you imagine. Foles has to save him again from injury. Lol. 
 

I would just ride with eason. He knows the play book and has developed bonds with team mates.

I don't see any way that we bring Foles in. That would be the biggest slap in the face to Wentz. I think we roll with Eason if Wentz can't go and maybe bring in a vet backup behind him.

My thoughts as they appeared in my lunatic fringe mind....

 

  1. well maybe we'll have a 1st round pick next year
  2. did Rivers start that HS job yet?
  3. Reich gets yet another year with a good "excuse"
  4. unlock the Swag
  5. perhaps it's time for Minshew. Nothing like 70s porn football

Not trying to speculate but if he had a mri this morning seems to me they might of saw a broken bone in the foot with X-ray  and doing more testing to see how bad it is. 

No if he had a X-ray it would have shown a broken bone . The mri is for ligaments more then bones .

This was just posted in Keefers new story. 
 

 

But the sense was clear: this isn’t going to just keep Wentz out a day or two. This could be something more.

The team was not ready to put a timetable on a potential return, instead preferring to get more information on what exactly the injury is.

Well, I will assume this is not a season ending thing, much less a career thing. That's how I'm rolling.

 

That said, the Colts can go two ways if Wentz is not under center game one. Part of me wants a capable vet, but a bigger part of me wants to see what the 3 backups have when the pressure is on. It's still my team, and I am looking forward to the season regardless.

 

This is a classic example of why I don't hang my hopes onto a SB or bust train. I enjoy each season for it's uniqueness.

Not trying to speculate, and then you turn right around and speculate.           :facepalm:

I'm not trying to speculate, but here's my speculation.

 

BTW, it's a board... it's OK to speculate. Just don't start your post with "not trying to speculate" lol

This is some good news. Could be worse. Except we have a hard start to the season.

 

 

 

So he should wait and not get the surgery.  then when they realize he isn't healing he can get the surgery.

 

Have I heard that before?

That is probably why he is seeing the door doctor. To determine what is the best moving forward.

 
Hw needs all these reps in TC. Nor expecting much to start the season. Eason will get some valuabe reps but Carson needed those.

I was just watching a ortho doc explaining what his injury could be. I will see if I can find it. It ranges from missing anywhere from 2 weeks to 8 weeks. 
 One game is too many because that means he also misses all of training camp. Plus we have a very hard schedule.

Grass. 

As long as their not practicing on crack, I'm fine.

I was just trying to understand how he injured himself.

 

I've seen in the past where QB's plant their plant foot (back foot) too hard into artificial turf and the turf doesn't give so an injury happens.

 

If you do that on grass the grass gives away and you kick out a huge clump of grass.

 

I don't believe he was tackled all TC so it doesn't make any sense.

Bout to see some 70s football - run the ball and let Eason take 5-6 shots a game.  Terry Bradshaw would approve.

Kid's got a cannon. "Release the cannon!"

    • I didn't like it either.  If I were in charge, I would have kept the playoff field at 6 teams each, and kept the season at 16 games.  However, I still would have made the season 18 weeks long, but with each team having two bye weeks instead.   Six teams have byes during weeks 4 to 7, four teams have byes during weeks 8 and 9.  Then have the same teams repeat their byes during weeks 10 to 13 and weeks 14 and 15 to promote fairness.   Weeks 16, 17, and 18 would have two Saturday flex games on NFLN featuring teams in the playoff hunt.   Increased tv revenue, players get the extra bye to rest/heal, added excitement for late season Saturday games, and the season stays balanced at 16 games.  Everyone wins - fans, players, and owners.
    • If they really want to go crazy and increase the parity, there's always the high school format where everyone plays in a playoff. Imagine the chaos that would cause with a 1-15-1 Lions team upsetting a 14-3 Cardinals team.    Would they go that far? Probably not, but I didn't think they'd actually go to 7, so it's all out on the table now. 
    • Late to the party in playing catch of reading things and not specific to this discussion, but yes this needs to get more recognition.    For any sport, especially those that are a series of "set pieces" there is the strategic as well as the tactical. So if we take cricket, you often have bowling plans for specific batters and often the ball that gets them out has been set up by the 2/5/10 ones bowled at them before. As an example, you might bowl a series of of short balls purposefully offering some easy runs to get the batsman almost into a automatic playing of that shot... then you sneakily move the fielder a few paces to be in the perfect position the next time.    Point being, a series of stuffed runs might not be a total failure if they keep the D 'honest' and at least having to account for the run. Put it another way, if you know a team's response to you stacking the box is they're going to just not run it, you've made them one dimensional and although you might show a stacked box you use it to bait them into a trap if you know it's going to be a passing play.    Not aimed at you obviously, just my 2 cents that it's not always black/white looking at things like this without nuance/context.
    • Let's not start jumping to conclusions and put words in people's mouth's either. They threw too much and ran too little. We don't need to change what i said, Nor do we need to complicate it. I blamed Carson for nothing, and never typed anything that resembles "hero ball." My statement was accurate.
    • I think teams have this already, well for certain players who need 'handlers'. Vaguely remember Dallas were fairly open that Dez had a team dedicated to just keeping him out of trouble during his time there. On a lesser extreme scale I think a lot of players have "Moms" who make sure they're in the right place at the right time and don't talk to strange press people out of a controlled environment.
