Why I love the Colts

Enough said.

Links: Here's yet another story about how Tony Dungy is set to headline EA Sports' NFL Head Coach '09. I hope they've improved this game because I heard the prior version sucked pretty hard.

The Colts gear up for the start of free agency tomorrow.

Bill Simmons and the citizens of Seattle warn sports fans everywhere that It Could Happen to You. I feel for Seattle greatly. Especially after reading these fan letters. I read Howard Schultz's book about how he turned Starbucks into a global phenomenon. Somehow I don't recall "screw over the entire city of Seattle" being one of his steps to success. Let this be a lesson to you: David Stern won't stop until he's turned every last professional basketball fan into a diehard NFL fan. My own moment came in the 2004 Eastern Conference finals against the Pistons when Stern oversaw some of the worst officiating in the history of athletics. No compound fracture, no foul.

not sure if you can control your ads on the sidebar of your site but I was greeted by FunSara87 and HotPnkLvr making out and encouraging me to visit some site for hot sexy singles. Doesn't seem like the kind of ad you would want on here

Yeah sorry about that. We have no control over it. They are completely random but slightly tied to our content. So since we have a sports blog that kind of thing would occasionally come up. If it ends up being too big a problem, we'll go a different direction

The ads are pretty much controlled by your most recent post, I've observed. We probably said something about Peyton Manning being super sexy or Joseph Addai being man-tastic.

This just in, Philly cuts The Freak. http://nbcsports.msnbc.com/id/23394938/

5 years ago if you had been asked to rank Kearse, Peppers, and Freeney, most NFL watchers would have put them in that order. Then Peppers was ranked #1 and Kearse had some injury issues. Bottom line, he never performed to his potential, for a few reasons. I still resent him for the perceived edge he had over 93 for a few years. Same for Peppers who fel apart this year without an injury excuse and should not have gotten the DROY over Freeney--he had more starts, fewer sacks, and a 4 game suspension! Setting the stage for Merriman's DPOY with a suspension. Good message to put out.

Now would I take Kearse as a situational pass rusher for $2M a year? If he saw only 30% of the snaps, he should stay healthy and might be worth it. But would he take a $4.5M reduction in pay? Giving an injury prone guy a chance to extend his career by part-timing might be worth the ego-bruising of being a rotation guy rather than the star....

Wow--that article abou the fans in Seattle was just plain sad. I'm not a basketball fan by any stretch of the imagination, but what a huge sh!tball Seattle has been handed. I really feel for those fans. What a crock.
