So maybe there is a little fire to the smoke that things are sort of in "shut down" mode. Just listening to Bowen and JMV- the guy practices a few times, and BAM now it isn't healing- has a lot of similarities to Ebron having a really great game, 3 days later his ankles are so bad he can't play anymore...

Now JMV / Bowen are wondering if this is a situation of guys shutting themselves down vs potentially taking bigger injury hits over the final few games leading into FA. Speculating about the lack of passing yards and not wanting to have that impact other teams evaluation of their abilities...

Certainly interesting developments- none of them positive, for the shoe...

They are still in playoff contention. Zero chance they are just shutting it down

This team isn't making noise in the playoffs even if they are in "contention" for now. I'm ok with guys making business decisions if they don't see this as their team next year. Get them out of the locker room.

If we had a kicker we'd be 8-2 at worst. If we didn't have so many wrs down we could win the AFC.

NE isn't NE this year.

What was Brissett before the injuries? 19/2?

You or JMV / Bowen have it backwards.

There were reports that the bone was healing slower than expected.

Then Funchess starts practicing on his own in limited drills - I would assume it was mainly conditioning type work.

Funchess never practiced with the team - his activities were so limited he didn't even get listed on the Colts daily injury / practice reports.

What a waste. Overpaid him in the first place and then get nothing out of him. Maybe next time Ballard will actually bring someone in that actually has been productive and deserves the payday.

I said Funches wasn't going to play again this season in the Ebron to IR thread. I read a tweet that said Luck and Funches got paid $35 million this year for three quarters of football. Just take this old season out behind the barn and shoot it.

Such weird takes here. The guy had a season ending injury and is getting bashed for it.
