PLAYERS: Jim Irsay
TEAMS: Indianapolis Colts
Give me a break, Jim Irsay. For the love of the football gods, just give me a freaking break. The Indianapolis Colts owner, who is one of the league's most outspoken head men, took to Twitter on Wednesday afternoon as news started to percolate the NFL owners were nearing the end of the lockout with the game officials. No deal is done yet, but apparently, after replacement officials embarrassed the league for an entire preseason and then almost 20 percent of the regular season, the owners finally seem willing to give at least just an inch. The NFL brand finally...

Unforced Errors: Penalties Are a Killer

Jim Caldwell was not my favorite NFL coach.  That's putting it mildly.  Let's just say I pretty much despised the way he coached on the sidelines each week.  Nevertheless, Jim Caldwell's teams had one thing that Chuck Pagano could take a page from: penalties.   The Colts have already had issues this season with penalties, and this week's loss to Minnesota...

Following a Legend: Andrew Luck Week 3 vs. Jacksonville Jaguars

They also have a very easy schedule and Andrew Luck is also the real deal, which is the most important thing...

All-22 Analysis - Evaluating the Colts Defense, Week 3.

Peaks and valleys seems to be the theme this year with the Colts, with an impressive first half showing on Sunday completely rendered obsolete in an awful loss at home to the Jacksonville Jaguars.
