Less than three months ago the New England Patriots snatched up Anthony Gonzalez after he was allowed to enter free agency. Now he finds himself looking for a job once again. Although it seems unlikely that the Colts would choose to re-sign Gonzalez during the summer while they're spending time getting young receivers acclimated to Bruce Arians new offensive system, making such a move could be a low risk, high reward scenario. At no point in Gonzo's career has their been a legitimate question about his abilities as an NFL receiver. He is fast, has reliable hands, and works extremely hard during the off-season to build a rapport with his quarterback. The only question surrounding Gonzalez is whether or not his run with injuries has come to an end. Would it be worth it to grab the veteran receiver for little more than the vet minimum and replace one of the lesser wide receiver candidates during training camp? A group of wide receivers like Wayne, Collie, Gonzalez, Hilton,...

Tom Brady’s Wicked Accent Video

Funny or Die Presents: Tom Brady Tom Brady’s Wicked Accent from Tom Brady I don’t have much to say about this “Wicked” video, except the fact it was funny and I’m glad Brady did it.

But when it comes to weddings, it's often about formalities. Whatever...

Wow, I’m impressed. Not really with the video itself but...

Wow, I’m impressed. Not really with the video itself but with TFB’s acting. Even as Patriots fans we can admit that any time Brady has “acted” in the past it’s a cringe-worthy experience. But maybe he’s gotten some acting lessons or something because I didn’t find myself cringing at all during this one. He’s not quite on Peyton’s acting level yet, but I think he...

With the NFL having decided to move the trade deadline back two weeks to Week 8 next season, Colts fans are left wondering if that would have been a good thing or a bad thing for their team last season.

The great blackout myth

With the news that roughly 3,000 season tickets remain for the upcoming 2012 Indianapolis Colts campaign many in the national media have stated that blackouts are a risk. This is a terrible exaggeration as the risk of a blackout is pretty limited. To avoid a blackout not all 63,000 seats in Lucas Oil Stadium must be filled. The NFL only requires all non-club, non-suite and non-obstructed...
