Should the Indianapolis Colts consider a QB during free agency?

There’s one axiom that almost every football coach, analyst and fan believes about the game today: The NFL is a quarterback-driven league. If a team has a good one, they are a contender. If they don’t, they have no chance of competing for a title. Thus, landing an elite signal caller is priority No. 1 for every team. While the best place to find one is in the draft, not every...

Should the Indianapolis Colts consider a QB in the 2015 NFL Draft?

Right now, the Indianapolis Colts are set at quarterback. Andrew Luck is a bona fide star, a player who positions the franchise as a Super Bowl contender for years to come. And he hasn’t even reached his potential yet, given that he’s coming off of his best statistical season in 2014. But behind Flacco, things are pretty thin for the Colts. At season’s end, Matt Hasselbeck...

He can hire a first-time OC (like he did when he hired Day at Temple). Or he can hire a current OC who wants to come to BC. Most of Addazio's hires at Temple and BC have either worked with him in the past or had specific ties to...

Seahawks-Packers tickets sky high as Super Bowl berth looms

The Seattle Seahawks and Green Bay Packers won’t forget the “Fail Mary” of two years ago, and neither will their fans. That brief hiccup from the replacement referees isn’t the only issue burning between these two teams, however, as the Pack sets out to become just the third team to win in Seattle in the past three years.

Oh, sure, I could talk about how Charlie Whitehurst again showed why he’s a backup quarterback, like a poor man’s Ryan Fitzpatrick with a stronger arm and greater willingness to take sacks. Or a defense that couldn’t...
