Stocking Stuffers

Today’s randomness includes 18 Plays which you can download here or listen to in the embedded player. ITunes users should already have the episode downloaded. Congrats to the Fantasy League winner HoosierHoops and his team DaColtz.  He bested me in the championship game, but seeing as how he posted a freaking 185 (the highest […]

Round Table

Today we welcome our three favorite fans to a round table discussion of the 2008 Colts.  We have Big Blue Homer, Shakey Realist, and Demond Doom* here to discuss the ins and outs of the prospects for the Horse. Topic #1:  The Colts prospects this week for a 12-4 recordBBH:  Tennessee is the most overrated […]

MVP Update: Week 16

Let’s start with a question:  Is the race over?  It should be.  It could be.  There is no way of knowing.  Picking the order of this week’s ranking is a tall task.  You could put the second, third, fourth, and fifth players in almost any order and I would not argue.  I have to confess […]

Hi! I’m Kurt Warner, and I’m not the MVP either!

If he even gets a vote, it’s a crime. Oh, and while we are at, Ben Roethlisberger isn’t the MVP either (but most sane people already knew that). Links:Don Banks votes for MVP, and right now he’s voting for Peyton.  I can’t see how anything that happened this afternoon changed that.

An implosion even #18 couldn’t prevent

Links: This story is very big news in my culture.  Remember actual MVP voter Bob Glauber of Newsday?  Less than 2 weeks ago he didn’t have Peyton Manning in his top ten.  It’s a totally different story today.  Weston Wamp of LegitSports says its the intangibles that make Peyton the MVP.  Ryan Sonner says the third MVP would put the […]


I keep hearing it. This time, I’m not even going to argue it. I’m just posting the data: Peyton Manning’s Career averages through 2007: table.tableizer-table {border: 1px solid #CCC; font-family: Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif; font-size: 11px;} .tableizer-table td {padding: 4px; margin: 3px; border: 1px solid #ccc;} .tableizer-firstrow td {background-color: #104E8B; color: #FFF; font-weight: bold;} Comp.

Goodbye Hoosier Dome

You changed the landscape of downtown.  You brought us the Horse.  You looked like a giant UFO.  I’m not exactly sure you’ll be missed, but you were appreciated. Jake the Snake’s homage is touching if cheesy.

Non-Manning Thoughts on the Game

Thanks to Derek Schultz of XL950 for sharing that beauty with us. Peyton is the best.  We all saw it.  He’s the MVP this year, and in 50 years most of us that can still remember anything will remember this season as his greatest no matter what happens from here on out.  Let’s talk about the […]

Position Filled – No others need apply

Colts 31  –  Jaguars 24 Links:The early AP article contains the single most inappropriate segue in history: “It was incredible,” said Collier, who left the field amid chants of his name and a standing ovation. “It was real amazing. The crowd was going. I got chills. I’ve still got chills. It’s amazing, it really is.” […]

A Preemptive Strike – To Rest or Not to Rest?

I realize that nothing has been set in stone, but some fans are already angst ridden over the prospect of the Colts resting their starters next week.  We’ve long held that this is the only smart thing to do, but some idiots like to exercise a very selective memory to cherry pick situations where it […]

Early Eyes

Eyes in the Backfield is ready to go in a very special midweek episode.  (Insert Demond learns how to appropriately deal with rage and/or peer pressure joke here) Last week, the boys sucked me into predicting the blowout, yet required another fourth quarter TD from Manning and company to pull one out against Detroit.  Now, […]

All the Small Things

Fans love to hate their head coach.  Even Bill Belichick and his three Super Bowl rings only rates a 69% on ESPN’s Coach Approval ratings.  A generation of Madden playing second guessers has spawned blogs and message boards (a scourge!  a scourge upon our land I say!) that rake 31 of the 32 coaches over […]

MVP Update: Week 15

The 2008 MVP race is officially insane.  Players are moving on and off my list at a dizzying pace.  ESPN’s top three candidates named just last week by the blog squad now seem quite lame.  Who does that leave us with?  I’m still not buying the defensive players.  There are too many of them and […]

Scouts Inc is run by clowns

I’ve railed against them for sometime, but there can now officially be no question.  Scouts Inc., which is the scouting branch/organization used by ESPN is one of the worst, most useless groups ever assembled.  We’ve detailed before how Jeremy Green, son of Denny, used to work for the worst front office in history.  We showed […]

What to do with this?

Today’s game was certainly not quite what any of us expected, and it’s difficult to know how to react.  Ultimately, any time your team wins its 7th game in a row by double digits, you should be satisfied.  Still, everyone was hoping for a more dominant performance that didn’t include more fourth quarter heroics from […]

No Pun This Week

But Eyes is still ready!  Here’s a sneak peak: Last week’s game finally produced a long awaited blowout, and now with the playoffs on the line the Colts are visited by another of the worst franchises in professional sports. The Detroit Lions are threatening to become the first team in NFL history to successfully complete […]

One More Reason to Vote Manning

It’s notoriously difficult to track all the effects of a an offensive line.  On one hand, it’s easy to look at the Colts line, and wonder what all the injury fuss is about.  Peyton Manning has only been sacked 12 times on the season.  Someone looking at the stat page would obviously conclude that he’s […]
