Found October 24, 2011 on Shirts With Random Triangles:
The Indianapolis Colts' long national nightmare without quarterback Peyton Manning seems to be taking its toll on linebacker Pat Angerer. He's begun to think his alma mater of Iowa is its own country. "The United State of Iowa?"  Granted, years of reading Black Heart Gold Pants will convince anyone that Iowa is its own state of mind, and one that usually requires some form of controlled substance to get to (legal or otherwise). Angerer's comments on Sunday Night Football takes the cake, however. Declaring Iowa as a sovereign nation is truly an act of bravado that can only come after weeks of a kind of humiliation that even drafting Andrew Luck won't ever completely compensate for.  (via Black Heart Gold Pants)

Peyton Manning, Questions Over Colts' Future Could Impact Decision to Draft Andrew Luck

With each passing defeat, the Colts move closer to one of the most fascinating storylines in NFL offseason history. They're a joke without quarterback Peyton Manning -- who has become the first subject of a half-serious MVP campaign due to his spot on the bench -- and that point was driven home by Sunday's 62-7 loss to the Saints. There was no question that they had given...

Tony Dungy Would Consider Trading Peyton Manning if He Still Ran Colts

Peyton Manning and Tony Dungy were once known in their professions as great winners who always fell just short of being champions. You'd think each would be grateful to the other for changing that reputation by winning Super Bowl XLI in 2007. Dungy showed business isn't personal, though, when he reportedly told NBC analyst Dan Patrick on Sunday that he would consider trading...

5 NFL Things That Must Be Stopped–Romanticizing Peyton Manning and Premature Ejectulation (Vol 3)

Peyton, NFL fans are grateful for everything you brought to the game. Now go home and be with your family (and take Tony Dungy with you!) I’m back again with 5 more NFL-related things that must be stopped. Let’s dive in! 1. Premature Ejectulation. I made “ejectulation” up because I needed a word to describe taking out a really bad QB out when it’s too late to win the game...

Curtis Painter is Not Peyton Manning as Colts Lose 62-7 (Video)

This video pretty much sums up the 62-7 loss that the Colts suffered last night at the hands of the Saints.  Yea we all know that Peyton Manning doesn't play defense and there is no excuse for giving up 62 points, but come on guys.  Painter went 9/17 with 67 yards and a pick. He also added the fumble in the video below that was one of the uglier plays of yesterday.  Painter...

Manning could begin jogging this week

Indianapolis Colts superstar quarterback Peyton Manning could begin jogging this week. Colts president Bill Polian toild SI.com of his franchise player's progress from offseason neck surgery, which may sideline Manning for the entire season. However, the Colts have not ruled out Manning's return later in the campaign. According to the report, Polian said he and Manning...

New Orleans Saints Week 7 Pregame: Indianapolis Colts at Saints

The Indianapolis Colts at the New Orleans Saints. It was being billed at the beginning of the 2011 season as the rematch of Super Bowl XLIV. With Indianapolis now bearing an 0-6 record and Peyton Manning presumably sitting in a suite inside the Superdome for this particular matchup, it becomes something well short of any kind of a real rematch on second thought. The Saints, meanwhile...

Many Words About the Huskies

Andrew Luck is the perfect human.  He oozes off-the-field character that somehow applies to his on-the-field performance.  He has all the physical tools; he’s the next Jim Plunkett.  No, the next John Elway.  No, the next Peyton Manning.  He’s as smart as Steve Jobs and as athletically gifted as Bryan Clay. He motivates his teammates like Kennedy, yet is results-oriented like FDR.  

Road to Imperfection – Chasing the defeated season

We are nearing the halfway point of the NFL season and three teams are still en route for ultimate awfulness. Only two teams in NFL history have managed this feat and only one officially in the current NFL regular season format. The ultimate season of futility. The elusive defeated season. The first such season was in 1976 when the Tampa Bay Buccaneers went 0-14. It’s really difficult...
