Phil B: Freeney should take Angerer to Hawaii

Phillip B. Wilson believes Dwight Freeney should take a little extra luggage to Hawaii: But to be completely honest … Angerer is the most deserving Colts player of Pro Bowl consideration. The second-year pro who stepped in as defensive captain when Gary Brackett got hurt in the season opener has been nothing short of heroic. Sure, Pro Bowl spots are often based on reputation...

Grecco: Texans best game of the season

Matt Grecco over at Stampede Blue took a look at the Texans game and came away with the idea that this was the best game the Colts played all year: By a ridiculously wide margin, this was the best game the Colts played all season, and I'm really glad it was paid off in a win for the players.
