Indianapolis Colts preview

With the Super Bowl a week away, there's some sad news that has started already for the Colts. Star defensive end Dwight Freeney had a torn ligament which would make it difficult for him to play in the Super Bowl against the high-powered offense of the New Orleans Saints. "He is under the care of our athletic training staff," Team Spokesman Craig Kelley said. "Nothing we have seen changes our diagnosis that he is questionable. He has a third-degree, low basketball sprain." It means Freeney has a complete tear in the ankle ligament. I see the Dwight playing. I doubt he will not play this game. 100 percent, actually. But even if Freeney does play in my mind, it's going to be questionable of how effective he will be. "He has had injuries before where they said [he's] not going to [...] Continue reading → | , , , , , , , , ,
With the Super Bowl in a bit over a week away, there is one thing on the Saints mind: talking trash. That’s right. The Saints have been talking a lot of trash with the Colts lately and Indianapolis really isn’t worried about any of this at all. “You know this guy [Manning] has a great clock in his head.

So today I got up early today and began watching the pre-game show on NFL Network. I love listening to Rich Eisen with his crew of retired coaches and players. He's one of the best Ever at keeping control of his show. GREATEST QUARTERBACK IN NFL HISTORY A discussion broke out about Peyton Manning and is he one of, if not, the best quarterback ever to play the game. There were some varied opinions from Warren Sapp, Marshall Faulk, Steve Marriuci and Michael Irvin. The consensus view was yes, he will retire one of the greatest ever. Not so fast though! Retired Dallas Cowboy Irvin [...] Continue reading → |
Change? You call this change? Ha! This ain't change! Change is going from a Republican white president to a Democratic black one. Change is landline phones to cell phones. Or cell phones to PDA's. It's going from fat 1980s Oprah to sleek 2000s Oprah (minus this past year, apparently). Or, on the flip side, going from 1980s Kirstie Alley to current day Kirstie Alley. Now that's change. What’s happening with the Indianapolis Colts is not change. At most, it’s some form of multifaceted tweak. Like a Peyton Manning audible, if you will. Now, granted, for perhaps 31 other NFL teams, [...] Continue reading → | , , , , , , ,
