The biggest game of the regular season, according to Bill Polian, takes place this Sunday. The Colts have a chance to make things very easy for themselves by sweeping the Jags. It would all but lock up the AFC South title and put the Colts in great position for a bye with four games to play. Pittsburgh, currently the three seed, still has tough games remaining versus New England and Jacksonville.
Here’s an article from the Orlando Sentinel focusing on Jacksonville’s mindset heading into the big game. David Garrard thinks the Jags can win the division. Also, the speculation has begun that Del Rio’s contract will be renegotiated after the season. This is great news. I was seriously afraid for awhile that JDR would get fired prompting the Jags to actually win the division the following season. Instead a guy who hasn’t won a four-team division in five attempts gets more money and more years on his deal.
Also check out Whitlock’s latest work for FoxSports. He takes a broad look at the Sean Taylor tragedy. I agree with Whitlock less than half the time, but count me among the people who think the IndyStar should do whatever it takes to hire this guy. I do not know how he would fit in the budget, but Kansas City is not exactly a major market either. I have nothing against Bob Kravitz who has been much better over the past year. He’s even made it off my official Bill Simmons and other people I can’t stand list. I just think Whitlock would sell papers and give us something to talk about.
