Report: Colts player screamed 'Don't snap it!' on infamous play

The Indianapolis Colts helped the New England Patriots beat them Sunday night by running one of the most inexplicable, idiotic plays in National Football League history.

Colts Waive Griff Whalen, Call up Zurlon Tipton

Yes, the Colts have shown receiver/returner Griff Whalen the door. Whalen was actually 8th in the league in kick return average at 25.2 yards (19th in punt return average at 7.2 yards), although average starting position after a return wasn’t something I could find quickly (feel free to send a link in the comments or on Twitter). They filled the empty roster spot with running back...

GIF: Indianapolis Colts WR Griff Whalen Gets Harsh Reminder Why Returning Punts Sucks

Dregs of the Roster: Da’Rick Rogers Film Review

With LaVon Brazill suspended for the season, the competition for the fifth spot on the Colts’ wide receiver depth chart will likely come down to Da’Rick Rogers and Griff Whalen, unless an undrafted rookie breaks out or they decide to keep six. (Quick aside: I always liked Brazill’s potential, but this is more disappointing than devastating. He was facing an uphill battle to...

Colts Authority Dregs of the Roster: Griff Whalen Film Review

By Ben Gundy In addition to having a name that sounds like a grunge rocking super hero from a bad/awesome 90s movie, Griff Whalen turned himself into a reasonably good receiver last year. After bouncing between the Colts’ practice squad and active roster for the first half of the season, Whalen, a former undrafted rookie who spent all of 2012 on injured reserve, worked his way...
