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.

Colts should pass on Decker if he's pricey

The start of the free agency is less than two weeks away. Receiver is one of the positions that the Indianapolis Colts need to address through free agency, trade or the draft. It’s about the present and the future for them at that position. Depth was an issue for the Colts at the start of last season. It was a bigger issue when Reggie Wayne crumbled to the ground with a torn...

The Bearded Trio-Rams Edition

When the Colts had Jim Harbaugh at QB, they were known as the cardiac Colts. Now it seems as if old Harbaugh showed Luck a thing or two about bringing the cardiac Colts back- Luck has 10 4th quarter and overtime comebacks in his first year and a half. As much as I love a win, I would really like it to stop being like that, or I’m only going to live until I’m about….32. If the...
