I really don't care if Darius gets the vaccine or not its his descision to make. Even if that means it costs us some games Im ok with that because Darius is someone you don't just trade away. You trade Darius away and because you are worried he might cost you a game or 2 and you end up losing more games because your defense is now weaker. This country has lost a lot during this pandemic and a bright side has been this team and its way better with Darius on it then off and its annoying and just plain dumb when people here say get rid of Darius because he won't do something you think everyone should do. I would rather lose a bunch of games this season then get rid of the players that make this team what it is.

I’m not sure I’d go so far as to say trade Leonard, but it certainly increases my concern with the size and length of his next contract. For all the talk of the high quality locker room and culture Ballard is building, one of its most visible and outspoken leaders is, IMO, showing himself to be both selfish and ignorant. That would concern me when handing out a $90-100m contract. It’s unfortunate but how do you ignore it when you’ve spent 5 years preaching about it. We’ll see how it all plays out but it looks like his “leadership” may have an affect - Colts are at the bottom in vaccination rates.

Anybody is tradable and no one player is that vital. If you got enough, trading anyone on this team is fine with me. I would still want protection for the team if he still refuses to get vaccinated. It is an unnecessary risk for the team to take on someone making that kind of money

America landed men on the moon 52 years ago this week. Nowdays, we can't even get people to take a vaccine during a pandemic. What a disgrace.

We have seatbelt laws to improve public safety, we have helmet laws in some states for not only motor bikes, but bicycles as well.

But, yet we can't have laws to get vaccinated to improve public safety. The constitution that we live by actually grants these laws for public safety.

We have laws in place for kids getting about 15 different shots as they move through K - MS. It works because we reach a high % of vaccination that prevents a breakthrough infection, Reich being the example.

If we cant get people to get a covid shot, This virus will dog us until we achieve herd immunity or the virus continues to evolve into a more deadly strain and kills off the unvaccinated until they disappear, and this nation will achieve herd immunity at a horrific cost

As of July 26, Washington had the lowest player vax rate in the NFL, with 60% having received at least one dose, per source. Indy is 2nd-lowest at 63%.

Overall, nearly 84% of NFL players . . . . have received their first dose of vaccine

Good to see such a dedicated group.

I don’t often agree with Michael Irvin but on this I do. Pretty obvious sign to me this team isn’t ready to win yet.

63%? It will be interesting when these guys get in front of reporters and answer why they are not vaccinated. My guess is that those answers will not endear these guys to most of us.
