Kissing Suzy Kolber:
Alternate title: Ogre versus Troll.
Were it any other city than Boston, I would assume this Boston Herald cover to be just an unfortunate play on words, but it’s Massholes so of course they want to imply that Andrew Luck’s standout rookie season has merely been the result of pure happenstance. Because no one expected him to be any good. NO ONE DENIES THIS!
Pointing out that the 199th pick in the draft even got the opportunity to be a regular starter in the league is owed more to chance than Luck’s ascent is more reasoning than an obvious troll attempt deserves, but there you go. Anyway, another drawback to Luck living up to his billing is that it means the media can continue to pump the Colts-Patriots rivalry like people actually give a sh*t. Jim Nantz will speak of it in hushed tones usually reserved for The Masters and other stuff white people love.
That said, both these defenses are horrible, so at least there should be 800 points scored.

Andrew Luck was the most hyped player to enter the draft in decades, did he have any chance of living up to the expectations? Now that we're more than half way through the season we should take a look as some of the postseason awards. We all knew that Rookie of the Year would come down to the #1 and #2 picks in the draft.
Here's a look at their seasons:
By Alex Wong / @steven_lebron You know that the NFL season is headed into the home stretch when you start to check the playoff standings and analyze all the tie breakers that go into deciding the wild card or even division title spots. We’re here now. For the first time this season, I clicked on [...]The post The 4 NFL Story Lines That Matter In The 2nd Half Of The Season appeared...
I really need to know.
Just what is an “acceptable” win for the New England Patriots?
When they win a nail-biter, the cry is that they cannot “close out” teams, they lack “killer instinct” and they don’t “step on the throat” of opposing teams when they have them down.
On the other hand, in games like yesterday’s 59-24 rout of the Indianapolis Colts, the cry turns...
It wasn't pretty and the Indianapolis Colts know it.
Now all they can do is try to bounce back after an embarrassing 59-24 loss at New England on Sunday.
The Colts had four turnovers, and two of Andrew Luck's three interceptions were returned for touchdowns. Interim coach Bruce Arians said the mistakes the rookie quarterback made were just technical errors.
Alfonzo Dennard had just one more Colts player to beat on the way to his first career touchdown in the NFL — the quarterback. The only problem is that quarterback just so happened to be Andrew Luck.
Luck tracked Dennard down during his 87-yard interception return, trying to cut off the speedy cornerback along the sideline before reaching the end zone. Luck’s athleticism and speed...
Can Andrew Luck carry the day for the Colts vs the Patriots? Stranger things have happened to a New England defense that has had issues stopping the pass.
The Indianapolis Colts and the New England Patriots have shared what arguably has been the best rivalry in American professional sports for much of the previous decade.
Who can forget New England’s triumphs against Peyton Manning in the snow in Foxborough, Mass. during both the 2003 and 2004 playoffs? Or the epic Colts comeback in the 2006 AFC Championship game en route to Super...
NEW YORK (AP) -- Jacksonville defensive tackle Terrance Knighton has been fined 25,000 by the NFL for making helmet-to-helmet contact with Colts quarterback Andrew Luck, who was defenseless at the time.
The hit came in Indianapolis' victory Nov. 8 at Jacksonville and negated an interception by Aaron Ross.
Jaguars safety Dawan Landry was fined 10,000 for a fourth-quarter hit...
The New England Patriots took a key game in the AFC play-off picture by dismantling the Indianapolis Colts 59-24. Tom Brady (24/35, 331 yards, 3 TD, 0 INT), Rob Gronkowski (7 receptions, 137 yards, 2 TD) and Julian Edelman (5 receptions, 57 yards 1 TD/1 rush, 47 yards/68 yard punt ret. TD) starred on the offensive side of the ball, while Alfonzo Dennard and Aqib Talib (on...
The Indianapolis Colts meet the New England Patriots today in a match-up that is far more relevant than anyone thought when the season began.
Both teams stand at 6-3. That’s a good thing for the Colts, a team that many thought would struggle to win one or to games. It may not be that great of a thing for the Patriots, who struggled early on in the season, but have recently ratcheted...
I’ve been licking my chops about this one all week, since the Colts dismantled the Jaguars 9 days ago on prime time. They will be in tough as they face the AFC powerhouse Patriots. In a rivalry that used to feature the two best quarterbacks Peyton Manning and Tom Brady, we now have a battle between rookie quarterback sensation Andrew Luck facing off against Brady.
In the Bill Belichick...
FOXBOROUGH, Mass. -- The New England Patriots and Indianapolis Colts, two old rivals, met Sunday for the first time since Peyton Manning moved on to Denver. Star rookie Andrew Luck is now the Indianapolis quarterback, and he showed some of the special stuff he possesses, but New England pulled away and beat the Colts 59-24 in a wild one. The Patriots tied the franchise record...
