This is a game that could get real ugly real fast, or it could be one of those surprises for the start of the NFL season.I am not sure yet where I stand on it, but it’s football and it’s Sunday and, well, two former greats of the 1970s beating on each other cannot be that bad.But, oh yes it can be.Enter the world of Andrew Luck. The second-year player who did everything asked of him and then some to lead a downtrodden team only one year removed to a playoff berth.While the sky's the limit for this superstar and the Colts look like they are real, does the second-year gunner have the same stones this year? Does the second season slump get to him (I am not saying it will)?And then, there is Terrelle Pryor, who has been given the keys to the Oakland Raiders' offense and asked to drive the vehicle without a blemish and try to reach the end zone every once in awhile.Pryor has been waiting for this chance.

Pryor gets starting nod for Raiders

Oakland coach Dennis Allen started Terrelle Pryor at quarterback Sunday at Indianapolis. Allen tried to keep his decision a secret right up until game time. But the move was hardly a surprise. All week, the speculation was that Pryor would get the nod over Matt Flynn, who has a sore elbow on his throwing arm. The thought also was that with Pryor being more mobile, that would work...

Andrew Luck, Indianapolis Colts look to build upon 2012

Andrew Luck and the Colts look to build on their successes from last year’s surprising 11-5 finish. Anyone who says Andrew Luck – and by extension the Indianapolis Colts as a whole – will have a let down in 2012 may just be in for a bit of a surprise. It’s understandable why the majority of the media and blogosphere feel that way. The Colts absolutely overachieved last year...

Paul George Surprises Colts Fans As Inflatable Mascot

Paul George surprised fans at the Colts game by dressing up as Air Blue, the Colts inflatable version of mascot Blue.  The Colts also dropped a nice little remix of Robin Thicke’s “Blurred Lines.”  We’ve talked about LeBron, but I’d like to see George line up as a wide receiver.  Andrew Luck might like that too.
