Let’s face it. Low rushing totals are a byproduct of the pass-friendly league that is now the NFL. Teams pass so much now that it seems like they sometimes forget to run the ball.
This is especially true of teams that have a signal-caller the quality of a Peyton Manning, Tom Brady, Aaron Rodgers or a Drew Brees.

Andrew Luck can’t use Jim Irsay’s jet

According to ESPN via Mike Chappell of the Indianapolis Star, rookie quarterback Andrew Luck won’t be able to use Indianapolis Colts owner Jim Irsay’s private jet in order to get around to private work outs with his teammates.  It would violate the rules of the new CBA that was agreed upon last year.
