Longtime Ravens kicker Matt Stover will be honored before Sunday's game against the Cincinnati Bengals. Stover, the kicker on Baltimore's Super Bowl XXXV championship team, retired after he spent the 2009 season with the Indianapolis Colts. During the 2000 season, Stover carried the offense for a five game period. Those five games saw the Ravens not get in the end zone for 21 straight quarters. They went 3-2 during that period of time. Stover, at least to me, is one of the most beloved Ravens of all time because of his clutch field goals.

Colts favored vs. the bye

We used to joke that no one beats the bye.  Luckily, the Colts likely can't lose either according to Reggie Hayes: Curtis Painter walked off the field Sunday and saw his shadow. That means six more weeks of bad Colts football. I should clarify. We'll have one week of no Colts football – they have a bye next Sunday and are currently three-point favorites – before the...

Orlovsky wants a shot

Next man up right?  After Curtis Painter struggled Dan Orlovsky took the field last week against the Jaguars.  He'd like to come off the bye week with a starting job: Backup Dan Orlovsky wasn't necessarily lobbying to replace ineffective Curtis Painter in the aftermath of the Indianapolis Colts' 17-3 loss to the Jacksonville Jaguars on Sunday at Lucas Oil Stadium...

Polian says Manning “OK” with Colts drafting Luck

The Colts now have a two-game lead in the Suck For Luck race, all but ensuring themselves a shot at drafting Peyton Manning’s eventual replacement. The only thing standing in their way could be Manning’s objection. Apparently that won’t be an issue. According to an AP report, Bill Polian stated “Peyton and I have spoken about [drafting his successor], and he’s OK with that...

Freeney will take a bye in Big Apple

Dwight Freeney knows where to go to take his mind off a forgettable NFL season. The bye weekend off means an escape to New York. It always has for the Indianapolis Colts defensive end. If you're a handsome eligible bachelor who makes millions, what's not to like?

Colts will consider drafting a QB

Bill Polian says the Indianapolis Colts may look for Peyton Manning's successor in the next NFL draft. Without discussing specific names, Polian, the Colts' vice chairman, told radio listeners he had already spoken with Manning about using Indy's first-round draft pick on a quarterback and that Manning is ''fine'' with that. Speculation, of course, has...

Polian: Colts open to drafting Manning's replacement

The Indianapolis Colts won't hold back on drafting Peyton Manning's replacement this year if the right player is available. Colts vice chairman Bill Polian said he’s already discussed that possibility with his All-Pro quarterback, and Manning is on board. “The bottom line is that if the right person is there, and it has to be the right person, then now is the time to...

Tuesday Open Thread: Moving On

Here's today's open thread. Possible topics of discussion: Polian says the Colts have talked with Manning about drafting a QB. I thought I had read quotes a couple of weeks ago about Manning understanding if the Colts have to take Luck, so I didn't really think this was news. Does anyone know the quote I'm referring to? I did a quick down and dirty look at...
