It isn't often that Cris Collinsworth says something positive about the Colts. It's even more rare (possibly the first) time I've quoted him without being snarky. Nonetheless Mike Chappell caught Collinsworth at a bit of a loss after seeing the Colts at Anderson before they wrapped up camp: Cris Collinsworth is well schooled on the NFL as an NBC analyst, and he was shocked by the Colts' 38-3 dismantling of the St. Louis Rams. "You don't go new head coach, new GM (general manager), new offensive coordinator, new defensive coordinator, new quarterback and look like that in your first preseason game. You just don't," he said. Collinsworth was on the practice field for a midweek Colts workout at Anderson University, making mental notes in preparation for tonight's nationally-televised game in Pittsburgh.

I’m next to step up Juan… Andrew Luck already has the look of a veteran and will be a staple in Indianapolis for the next decade or so.  He has already showed poise in his first NFL action and if things go they way I expect, there will be a ton of passing in Indy this season.  Austin Collie suffered what looks to be another in a long line of concussions, which not only threatens...

Colts QB Andrew Luck is as advertised

Colts WR Austin Collie Has Another Possible Concussion

I don’t like to tell athletes they should retire. I wouldn’t want anyone telling me when to quit doing what I love to do, but with Collie it is more about his health than anything else.

Wayne revival

Reggie Wayne is coming off of his worst season (75 catches for 960 yards) since the 2003-2004 season, and his average draft position reflects pessimism in his ability to bounce back. But why?
