Normally, this would be link material, but Peter King’s “10 Things I Think I Think” had an item so absurd that it has to be slammed, and hard. Here’s the item:
6. I think the most significant single play of the weekend could well have been the right-in-his-hands drop by Colts wide receiver Anthony Gonzalez late in the first half at Detroit. The Colts are trying to give Gonzalez one of two jobs — Marvin Harrison’s right wide-receiver spot, or the slot receiver job. But Peyton Manning and offensive coordinator Tom Moore are waiting for Gonzalez to raise his game and grab one of the jobs. After the Gonzalez drop, Manning threw six more passes, none to Gonzalez, and Dallas Clark was back in the slot, his comfort zone with Manning.
Manning’s going to throw to players he trusts, and with Gonzalez dropping a ball like that one — and not making enough plays otherwise in the preseason — he could well make Manning lean on Clark and rookie Austin Collie more inside, and Pierre Garcon outside. That really solves all your fantasy problems with the Colts, doesn’t it?
