I don’t know that we had many 4TE sets to be honest. I think Mo, Woods and Granson should be able to get the job done. Can always swing and extra lineman in to block if that’s the case.

 

From what I said you think I'm talking about 4TE sets? Well, I'm not. 

 

What I was inferring is that since we just lost a main TE on our roster, they might sub in another type of receiver in replacement. May that be in 2TE sets, or whatever.

What’s sad as a rookie he is going to be rehabbing instead of working on his skills which will put him behind next season. 

I have just never understood how a well conditioned athlete can blow out an Achilles or even injure their ACL while they are in their 20's. I played several sports in high school and ran for 20+ years on concrete and treadmills when I was my late 30's/early 40's, ran in a marathon and never had a problem like these guys have. Are they doing something wrong, is it training, not stretching, just trying to figure out why some get these injuries?

It’s a 9-month injury.   That puts him back around next May.   He’s young and resilient.   He should be fine.   You’ve already seen how fast Blackmon came back from two major injuries.   Ogletree should be ok as well.

Their not running in a consistent straight line like you did. They are three times as athletic as you and run full speed, cut, break, bend, sudden stops, blocking of incoming linebackers in all sorts of straining positions that compromise the knees and tendons. I promise you its nothing like your amateur running career lol.

Today's athlete's muscle strength and speed has increased dramatically from years past. The ligaments and tendons are not strong enough to support the increase of muscle mass and strength.

  They have the finest professional trainers so i wonder, is your body mass similar to pro football players, did you do a lot of sprinting, did you lift extremely heavy weights like these guys surely do, and did you do a lot of hard cutting as they do?

  I'm thinking they put much more stress on their joints and connective tissue.

 I would think that they did not properly stretch and take care of their injuries as young athletes so that it could be the source of later bigger injury.

 My cousin was an all-state 300 lb player and by the end of high school he had many broken fingers, an ankle, and played through lots of other injury.

 He would tell you that he was within the norm of what happens in the land of the giants. Post college physicals must look interesting.

Hes going to be a really good player. Standing next to Jelani Woods on that little Behind The Colts preseason show he seemed to be a hair taller than Jelani. Didnt realize how big bro is!

He's listed at 6'5 and Wood 6'7 so one of those numbers is off, could be both ..maybe Ogletree 6'6 1/2 and Woods 6'6 ?

Are we assuming he was going to start over MAC? How is he a “main” TE? He’d probably be listed as TE number 3-4 on the depth chart.

Don't know but I think he's bigger than 6. 5"


For whatever it’s worth….  At the combine Woods was measured at 6’7” and an 1/8.

 

Ogletree was measured at his Pro Day at 6’5” and a 1/4. 
 

Pictures can be deceiving.

    • they’ve beaten everybody in the conference at the top except Boston who is the clear #1. They will make the playoffs, which isn’t the case for the colts, and again they have the most dynamic point guard (who could have been the all star mvp.) The entire concept was ticket sales, and the colts record this year wasn’t part of the conversation. It was if they made a management change that led to three consecutive 4 win season…   And yes Caitlyn Clark will have the same draw in the wnba that she does currently, which is sold out arenas everywhere she goes and people paying nfl ticket prices to see her. It will be a first, considering no one goes to wnba games. She’s going to change the game as we know it.    I wasn’t aware of the blackout rule change. It doesn’t change my opinion on people not spending disposable income (grocery bills were just reported to be the highest percentage of disposable income in decades) to watch bad games.  If anything it strengthens that argument. Why spend the money when you can watch it at home/turn it off at halftime? 
    • A key part of being a successful coach is play calling that includes protecting your most important player. AR’s season ended on a dumb call, especially since AR had already shown in his first couple games that he was anything but indestructible. Is Shane a good coach? No doubt he seems to be, but let’s see how he handles play calling this year. 9-8 will probably be our ceiling again unless AR plays most games. With the offense we saw for AR, I wouldn’t bet a dime that he will escape another season ending injury.
    • I read up until the colts and stopped. Seemed decent rankings until then. I for one think the Texans staff deserve a lot of credit for doing what they did with their roster. Most people felt the Colts roster was better than the 4th pick but the Texans were truly one of the worst teams in the league. They did a good job.  Colts do appear to have an outstanding head coach. I really like Shane and I’m guessing if AR can stay healthy we will see the team move up list like these
    • If the Colts aren't able to a top FA at CB then I wouldn't mind taking a flier on Xavien Howard to bring in a veteran presence to help mentor the younger guys while filling a need at outside CB. Also, Xavien will go back to playing man coverage which is something he excels in.
    • We need a couple more very good DBs. One at CB and safety. Honestly, every level of this defense needs a playmaker. It’s far from elite.
