Trent Richardson fixed everything

Well, the Colts did it. They acquired Trent Richardson from Cleveland for a first round draft pick, and then today, they beat the NFC Champion from last year. Yep, that’s what did the trick. Richardson’s 2.7ypc and 3 passing targets (0 receptions) were the all it took for the Colts to knock off the 49ers. You see, Richardson must have been what it took for Ahmad Bradshaw to feel...

Trent Richardson Scores Touchdown on First Carry for the Colts

Luck outshines Kaepernick in Colts' upset of 49ers

Fantasy: Revised 'Survivor' picks for Weeks 4-17

An NFL 'Survivor' pool is a game of chance, where contestants are asked to select one lead-pipe cinch for wins in Weeks 1, 2, 3, 4, etc., with the caveat of only using a particular club once per season (in victory, at least). For example, I correctly had Andrew Luck and the Colts rolling over the Raiders at home in Week 1. By virtue of that, I can no longer designate Indianapolis...

Browns Coaching Staff could be backpedaling on success

After last week's trade of Trent Richardson to the Colts, many football pundits and fans thought for sure the Browns were all in for a top pick in the 2013 NFL draft.

The Old Man’s Picks – Week Four

By Jeff Heck, Bears Claws contributor Disclaimer: “He who gambles, lives in shambles.” Week three is over and the Old Man lost a little traction as he only went 10-6. I’m guessing I’m not alone.

Jim Brown rips Mike Holmgren, calls Richardson trade 'brilliant move'

Colts-Jaguars Preview

Perhaps viewed as a pass-first team last season, the Indianapolis Colts might be on their way to transitioning to a wholly different approach in 2013. A power run game and dominant play up front lifted the Colts to an impressive victory last week, and that could prove to be a winning formula again Sunday against the lowly Jacksonville Jaguars.
