Now that the 2012-13 season is over for Andrew Luck and the Indianapolis Colts, it’s now time to look into next year and the free agent pool. Let’s say, for giggles, the Colts were willing to spend serious dollars on a big name free agent.
Let’s play a game called, “What if”.
What if the Colts wanted a big time receiver to compliment Reggie Wayne? I think we all saw T.Y. Hilton, and what he can bring to the table, and we pretty much know Austin Collie can no longer count to ten without flashcards.

Two names come to mind and both of them are going to demand a hefty paycheck. Mike Wallace of the Pittsburgh Steelers and the Salsa Dancer himself, New York Giants’ Victor Cruz.

The Colts did an amazing job going from 2 wins in 2011 to 11 in 2012, the 2nd biggest turnaround in NFL history. Even more impressive, they did it in the face of, as Chuck Pagano would call it, “circumstances,” as Head Coach Pagano had to leave 3 games into the season after being diagnosed with leukemia. “ChuckStrong” became a rallying cry for this team, which went 9-3 in...

Indianapolis Colts quarterback Andrew Luck will replace New
England Patriots veteran Tom Brady in the 2013 Pro Bowl, the team has
announced. Brady has bowed out of the NFL All-Star game once again, this time

Draft by Indianapolis, Luck led the Colts to an 11-5 record and playoff
Unlike the first two teams report cards in the AFC South, the next two teams had quite different seasons. From go almost everyone had the Houston Texans pegged to repeat as division winners. But what not even the biggest optimist in Indianapolis predicted was that the Colts would end up finishing only one game behind Houston in the final standings.
In a season that was all about...

Obviously Washington Redskins QB Robert Griffin III will not be playing in the annual all-star game after undergoing knee surgery...
Now that the Pro Bowl is played before the Super Bowl some of the players can’t make the Pro Bowl since they will be playing in the Super Bowl. Still others bow out of the Pro Bowl because of an injury or they came up just short in the playoffs that they are done with football for the season.
Sometimes one man’s loss is another man’s gain. For two rookie quarterbacks they are...
