How is it possible that a defending Super Bowl Champion with the highest profile player in the NFL could start 5-0 and get no attention? It's funny really, but during NBC's highlight package, they showed the Colts destroy (in every possible sense) a 3-1 team with a high profile coach, and then went right back to talking about how handsome Tom Brady is. It was just a tad surreal.
I'm having severe internet problems, so I might be more or less silent for a couple of days. Don't look for 18 Plays until tomorrow night probably. For now, just to validate my point, check out the Czar's mention of the Colts. Buried at the end of a column. Awesome.
Thanks to reader Dan who mentioned the Judge article. I don't know why I always for get to check cbssportsline these days. He also puts the Colts #1 in his rankings.
Also FO Audibles column was great today, virtually repeating my first paragraph verbatim. Scroll down for a long and great discussion of yesterday's game.
Thanks to the reader that posted this in the comments section. Great article! How did you find it?
One more just in: the FO Quick reads has some great stuff today. Tom Brady has the best 5 games of his life and guess what? He's still not better than Manning in DPar. . . ooooh poor Tom. Even at his BEST he can't top an average season for Manning.
Demond Sanders: I'm officially back on the Football Outsiders bandwagon. Good stuff from them today. Although about the Jags he writes "Jaguars 3, National Jump to Conclusions Week 1." This references the fact that when teams lose in Week 1 the media tends to overreacts. This is of course true, but in the Jags' case I'm not sure they were wrong. The knock on the Jags was that they had a below-average quarterback and a stagnant offense. Neither may be completely true, but they are averaging less than 16 points per game. That won't get it done in the AFC South (where they are 0-1 going into this week's Houston game).
