FCPHA: Big Table in the Back


Recommended Posts

the hits just keep on coming for you Colts fans ey?The Colts lost safeties Mike Newton (neck) and Al Afalava (ankle) in Sunday's win over the Jaguars.The Colts have lost safeties Bob Sanders, Melvin Bullitt, Jamie Silva, Chip Vaughn, Brandon King and David Caldwell already this season. Starters Antoine Bethea and Aaron Francisco are now the only ones left standing, so the team could need to bring in reinforcements. Dr. Daniel Kraft, the director of Riley Sports Medicine, isn't optimistic that Austin Collie (concussion) will return this season.Kraft isn't treating Collie but is actually a Colts season ticket holder that was at the game Sunday. "It would be very difficult in view of how long it took him to recover from the last one to think he's going to be back in three weeks," Kraft said. "I would be surprised if he recovers and is back before the season (ends)." The general consensus is that Collie is done at least for the regular season, but we won't know for sure until he goes through concussion tests.
If he's had multiple concussions it might be better if he retired and saved his brain from becoming mush. I know that's not good for the team, but it would be sad if he got stupid playing football.

I'm about to drink wine and eat french fries. Gourmet.edit: Yep...I liked my own post.

I'm back in the land of cold weather, wind, and snow. I left CA on a day it reached 90 degrees and arrived in Anchorage to 12 degree weather, caught a plane to Unalaska where it was 34 with 2 inches o

I'd like to see him stop running that route. IIRC, the play that hurt him Sunday was very similar to his last concussion. Instead of an out or a post, he just kind of runs a straight go pattern, gets behind the cornerback, and Manning leads him right into the 2nd man helping in coverage, who then clobbers a laid out Collie.

Good thing they put Collie on IR. One of these days, he won't get up from one of those hits. Sorry you guys had to sign Hamlin though - he's not good.
desperate times, the Colts have more DB's on IR than most teams have players on IR.

Dave blamed Manning for his getting smashed like that.

Well, I hope he gets better. It would be nice to have him back next season, healthy and with his brains in tact.

Dave is wrong.
I think it's apparent that this situation is an accident waiting to happen. If there's no way for a quarterback to avoid this situation, then Collie shouldn't be on the field, imho.http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=g7DqxEaRR0U

I mean, yeah, if we're assigning blame then you've gotta put it on Manning, as Collie got down as soon as he got the ball.In reality though, this isn't anybody's fault. Manning did his job by fitting into a tight window where Collie could get it, just as Collie and the defenders did their jobs. It's the risk he takes....variance, if you will.

How on earth is this Manning's fault, unless you're blaming Manning for either calling the play or completing a pass??He didn't expose his guy by throwing a bad pass. He threw it in stride to a wide open receiver.The blame goes to the org. for letting Collie play, but you can't blame Manning for throwing a perfect pass to an open receiver running a seam route. That's just silly.

Right. It's only his fault if we're going to blame him for making a tight pass into an incredibly small window because he put the receiver in that position.

Huh?If this is Manning's fault, then every single concussion ever is the QB's fault. How about we say the Jax defender put a lick on Collie and it's just football?

I completely agree with you that this isn't anyone's fault. I just understand how someone could say it's manning's fault. Does devil's advocate fit here? I wanna say I was playing devil's advocate.

There's obviously nothing wrong with the execution of the throw. It's hard not to have the impression that Caldwell is in charge of calling time-outs at random times and everything else is Manning. Could be just be a TV impression.

As for the Collie injury, I wasn't blaming Manning either. I just thought it was a tough spot to put him in. The route he ran on that play looked eerily similar to this one against Philly. He beats his man but as soon as he catches the ball someone is just waiting to drill him.
