I can think of few things more appropriate than a team, whose head coach announced earlier in the week he would be out, likely for the season, as he battles a treatable form of Leukemia, being beaten down in the first half only to come roaring back as if they were battling for their lives, to upset the Green Bay Packers 30-27.While it may be breast cancer awareness month, it might as well be cancer awareness. There is little doubt it was exactly that for the Indianapolis Colts on Sunday, adorned in pink garb playing under the slogan "Chuck Strong."So let Chuck Pagano be the hero of the game. He is most certainly a hero of life, as is anyone that has to endure cancer of any sort.He was surely on the minds of the players all week and during their inspirational second half comeback victory on Sunday.Honorable mention goes to Andrew Luck and Reggie Wayne, who connected on six of seven completions during the game winning drive, including the winning score. Wayne finished with 1...

Packers victims of their own press?

Last season, the Green Bay Packers followed up their improbable Super Bowl run to close out 2010 with a 15-1 regular season record.  As a team, the Packers seemed on top of the world; they were unstoppable. But with one of the most prolific offenses in NFL history, the Packers opportunistic defense has been less than desirable; an Achilles heel so to speak that cost the Packers...

NFC Best? The NFC West Makes a Strong Super Bowl Case

“Offense wins games; defense wins championships.”Whether or not that’s how the phrase originally went is moot. Unless you’re the 1999 St. Louis Rams, simply outscoring the opponent with nothing but copious offensive firepower just doesn’t cut it.
