Jacksonville Jaguars 22, Indianapolis Colts 17Blaine Gabbert (166 total yards, 1 TD)  was being positively Blaine Gabbert-esque on Sunday, on his way to less than 80 yards passing before one 80 yard bomb more than doubled his output for the day.  Seriously, is there a worse QB in the game for the forward pass than Gabbert?  From now on, if you pass for less than the length of a football field in a game, it should be known as “Throwing a Gabbert”.On the other hand, Andrew Luck (363 total yards, 2 TDs, 1 INT) is pretty much money from a fantasy prospective each week.  Sure, he’ll throw a pick or two in a game, but he’ll be on the plus side of 300 total yards and one to two scores more weeks than not.  Right now, I’d consider him a starter over more highly touted guys like Michael Vick.Cecil Shorts (1-80, 1 TD) had his second last minute, game tying or game winning long bomb catch in three weeks.  That’s essentially the only thing notable about a passing game headed by Gabbert.Reggie W...

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...

Jaxson DeVille wins bet; Colts' mascot changes Twitter avi

The Jaguars hate the Colts, and the Colts hate the Jaguars. That's why Jaguars fans are rejoicing as the Colts mascot has been forced to change his Twitter avi after apparently losing a bet to the Jaguars' mascot, Jaxson DeVille. I've always believed that Jaxson DeVille is the greatest mascot in the NFL, and this just furthers that belief. He's fun, hillarious...

Indianapolis Colts: Week 4 NFL Power Rankings (#20)

Record: 1-2 Last week: 20 (-1) Andrew Luck doesn’t have any help. He played well, but losing at home to Jacksonville is embarrassing. The good news is that they outplayed the Jaguars, despite the loss, and they should be getting healthier defensively soon, after the bye. They also have a very easy schedule and Andrew Luck is also the real deal, which is the most important thing...
