Yup. Just crazy lol..

 

I read an article a year or so ago that some places were kicking around some really whacky stadiums that would have both sliding FB and baseball fields. I guess with some arenas having ice under the basketball floor, is was only a matter of time lol.

How much would that cost for us to implement something similar?:rock:

I think he’s drafted one,  Dayo. 
 

Blackmon had a knee injury.   Fisher wasn’t drafted, he was a free agent signing. 

 

I feel like there has been one more but I could be wrong. I might just be thinking of Blackmon because think of who else it would be.

 

The comment was tongue in cheek, regardless :)

I don't think it's possible now.    It would have to have been built that way from the beginning I would think

A lot. 

But Indy would have had to build outside the city to do that. 

I'm sure the city wanted everything downtown to keep things centralized so they can keep winning bids on events.

When is back surgery minor?

Reich said he wasn't concerned. Season doesn't start for 3 months. He is probably having surgery to correct something. I don't know all the details yet but if it was major it would be huge news considering he is our best defensive player.

Darius, you okay bro? 

I will take him to St Elmo and get him a game day steak with a Bake Potato with butter. He should be fine from what I am hearing. The word back surgery is scary but it sounds minor. He was playing with injuries last season that we probably didn't even know about. He is getting things corrected hopefully.

Why does this sound like he had ankle surgery and are lying it was the back.

 

 

Thanks for the update. I figured it was minor (hoping anyway lol). He was really playing with a lot of nagging injuries last year. I can't wait to see him at 100%.

I cant tell if this post is satire or not. Has to be. 

 

The Colts and keeping serious injuries to star players under the rug. You cant name a more iconic duo. 

 

Edit: Posted before I saw the McAfee comment. I'm still skeptical. There is no such thing as minor back surgery.

It depends on the surgery. My step-dad had back surgery for a back disc out of place and he was fully recovered in 6 weeks when he was 53 years old. Worked 10 more years with no major problem. He wasn't near the athlete that Leonard is. He worked for the railroad and lifted heavy stuff all the time and was on his feet 8 hours a day. From everything I am hearing, Leonard probably had to have a minor correction that was lingering is all I am saying.

Fair enough and good to hear about your step dad. I know chronic back pain is a miserable thing to live with for some people.

Probably a microdiscectomy.

Really depends on what procedure Leonard underwent. If it were a "this morning" thing, it is likely not a big issue.  I have lived with chronic back issues for over 30 years, it is degenerative disk disease, which is really not related to the disc specifically, but the spongy tissue between disc's. They do injections now to replace the tissue to alleviate the bone on bone effects. When bone on bone acts up, all the surrounding muscles constrict, to protect the area, and the back locks up. This can be temporarily relieved by an injection, but could be what Maniac has been through, among many other fixable issues.

 Get a grip on it! This D is made for him. He has 2-3 more years of near ALL-PRO ball ahead of him.

Happy Season 4 GIF by The Simpsons- ok. It is comical how old school Colts fans bag on guys like Bob, Leonard, and Luck but kneel for Bert Jones. Tell me about Bert Jones?

Yes, there is such a thing as minor back surgery. 

The details area not available, but it's reasonable that he will be allowed to play in 3mo.

Speculation and anecdotal comments won't be useful...

What RR did your dad work for?  I'm a railroader.

So was his ankle fine all along and it turns out it was his back bothering him.

As Greg Doyle (IndyStar) speculated, the Colts didn't know how bad the back was, because the ankle kept him out of organized team activities.

    • It’s one practice.    One.    And from one practice you’ve extrapolated that this will be a problem all season long and we’ll miss the playoffs.    All from one practice.    I think you’re reading way too much into way too little.   Is it possible you’re right?  Sure. But it’s not likely.       OL play is typically slow to come around.   It takes time to gel.    Whatever the line is today, it should get better over time.    It started slow last year when injuries hit 4 of our 5 starting lineman.  But eventually the line gelled and Taylor ran for 1800 yards.   Remember?    This year we have two new starters on the line.   It’s going to take time.  Give it time.  
    • Im not a big fan of responding to a post with a mountain if stats, but these are pretty simple and straight forward.   Matt Ryan has 100 completions in 12 practices of 11 on 11 drills.   Thus doesn’t include 7 on 7 or any other drills, just 11 on 11.    Here’s how the receptions breakdown:   1.   Pittman    30 2.  Granson   14 3.  MAC.         13 4.  Taylor.        11 5.   Hines.       10 6.   Campbell.  8 7.    Pierce.       5 8.   Dulin.         4 9.   Ogletree.   3 10.  Patmon.    1 11.  Coutee.     1   That's 100 receptions.   Campbell is right in the middle of the group.   And 4 of the 5 WRs with fewer receptions are behind him.  PC is NOT having a quiet camp.   This is misinformation and bad analysis.   About 10 days ago fans here were predicting Granson wouldn’t make the 53.   How does that look now?    Could PC get cut?   Sure.  But it’s a long shot.  
    • Classy reaction from the kid. Best of luck in your recovery!
    • It’s his contract year and the Colts need all the WRs they can get.  You are right they aren’t going to move him.  If he doesn’t work out this year they will just simply let him walk at the end of the season.
    • While it’s good to hear I think this would only really be news if they didn’t dominate the Lions defense.
