Interesting, even a Texan blog writer is picking the Colts to win.
With this happening I venture to say the Colts FO knew what they were doing when they let him go.
I expect most has read or heard about this but for those who have not, this may if true decide if Favre plays again or not
I know this isn't Colts related but with all the hype about him thought this was interesting Report: Tim Tebow wants more than Dez Bryant The Dallas Cowboys selected Dez Bryant with the 24th pick in the 2010 NFL draft, and the Denver Broncos selected Tim Tebow 25th. Ordinarily, that would mean Tebow should get paid a little bit less than Bryant. But Tebow apparently wants more money than Bryant, and that's why he wasn't there when the Broncos' rookies reported to training camp today. Ed Werder of ESPN reported on NFL Live that the holdup on Tebow's contract is the request from agent Jimmy Sexton that a premium be paid to Tebow because he's a quarterback. Sexton wants Tebow to get a bigger signing bonus, higher base salaries and more money overall than Bryant is getting from the Cowboys. Werder reported that Tebow and the Broncos are close to getting the deal done, but in the mean time, coach Josh McDaniels has called Tebow and expressed disappointment that Tebow didn't report with the rest of the rookies. "You're missing time and you can't afford to miss it," McDaniels told Tebow, according to Werder. "You're not going to get these snaps back."Posted by Michael David Smith on July 28, 2010 4:23 PM ET
Another offseason of rehab for Bob Sanders, Anthony Gonzalez Posted by Gregg Rosenthal on May 13, 2010 11:55 AM ET Colts wideout Anthony Gonzalez originally hurt his knee in Week One last year. As of six weeks ago, he was still not "where he'd like to be," according to coach Jim Caldwell. Gonzalez's status for minicamp season is uncertain, and Mike Chappell of the Indianapolis Star writes he may not be medically cleared for full participation to start training camp. We're also not quite sure when we'll see safety Bob Sanders again. He's coming off biceps and knee surgeries. Gonzalez is more of a luxury at this point. He's likely fourth on the Colts wideout depth chart, creating a good problem of finding snaps for him along with Pierre Garcon and Austin Collie. Sanders is more crucial to the Colts defense. They need a difference maker in the secondary, and he hasn't given a lot of return for the big deal he signed late in 2007. Starting up the old injury watch for Sanders and Gonzalez makes it feel like last season never really ended in Indianapolis.Posted by Gregg Rosenthal on May 13, 2010 11:55 AM ET
Week 17 Morning Aftermath: Colts could face an awards backlash Posted by Mike Florio on January 4, 2010 10:11 AM ET The frustration that has been spawned by the decision of the Colts not to pursue a perfect record could have a specific consequence that previously has been overlooked. With postseason awards coming, the folks who vote on such matters might be influenced, consciously or otherwise, by the Colts' decision not to try to win all of their games, and by the lame explanations given by the team after all hell broke loose. This dynamic could arise in several ways. Jim Caldwell likely cost himself serious consideration for coach of the year, strengthening the candidacies of men like Norv Turner and Marvin Lewis. And while the decision to yank Peyton Manning from the Week 16 game between the Colts and the Jets likely confirms Peyton's value to the team, some of the 50 Associated Press voters who'll decide the MVP award might now opt to lean toward Vikings quarterback Brett Favre, Titans running back Chris Johnson, or Chargers quarterback Philip Rivers. Then there's the offensive player of the year award, which likely was destined to land with Johnson (who set the single-season yards from scrimmage record and rushed for more than 2,000 yards) and Saints quarterback Drew Brees (who now owns the mark for the highest single-season completion percentage). But Peyton might have squandered his shot at getting a few courtesy votes. And Bill Polian possibly can forget about being named the Sporting News executive of the year. Then again, the Colts probably will say that they don't care about postseason awards. Just like they don't care about going undefeated -- but unlike their attitude toward, say, Manning's streak of consecutive starts and Reggie Wayne and Dallas Clark catching 100 passes each.Posted by Mike Florio on January 4, 2010 10:11 AM ET
Colts call on fans to quit posting messages about Sunday's game Colts call on fans to quit posting messages about Sunday's game The fallout from Sunday's misguided decision by the Colts to tap out from their pursuit of perfection continues. Last night, team president Bill Polian's weekly radio show ended 10 minutes early, just as a caller had Polian on the ropes regarding the logical disconnect between resting injured starters for a meaningless game and pulling healthy starters from a close one. Now, a reader points out that the Colts have asked folks who post messages on the team's official "Fan Forum" to quit complaining. Under the heading "Enough is enough," site moderator named "TubaGuy" makes this plea: "Up to this point we have been letting people vent and get their emotion out. I think it has been needed, and we didn't want to shut it down. However, now it's getting to the point of being childish and VERY repetitive. At some point, probably Tuesday or Wednesday, it is time to move on. Whether you agree or disagree with the coaching move, this forum needs to move forward. We still have a lot of playing to do, and we need to come together and focus on the future. Let's move on, people. . . ." Though it's not the first time an NFL team has tried to nudge the discussion on its message boards in a different direction, the fact that the Colts find themselves in this predicament reconfirms that the organization grossly underestimated the local reaction to the abandonment of the quest for perfection with less than 1.5 regular-season games to play. So either the Colts aren't too smart, or they're extremely arrogant. We'll let PFT commenters debate this and any other topic for as long as they want.

Manning plans to play as long as it's competitive The Indianapolis Colts still maintain that they're more interested in entering the playoffs as healthy as possible than in going undefeated. But Colts quarterback Peyton Manning says he plans to play today's game as long as the outcome is in doubt. Rachel Nichols of ESPN reports that Manning told her he thinks he will play until the end of the game if the game is competitive. That stands in contrast to previous indications out of Indianapolis that the team would rather keep Manning healthy than try to go 16-0. Meanwhile, Jets linebacker Bart Scott told Nichols that the Jets' defense plans to hit Manning so often that the Colts will consider taking Manning out even when the outcome is in doubt.Posted by Michael David Smith on December 27, 2009 11:17 AM ET
Don Shula admits "concern" Colts or Saints could go unbeaten Posted by Michael David Smith on December 15, 2009 1:23 PM ET Don Shula is the only coach in NFL history to lead a team to an unbeaten, untied season. But Shula acknowledges that he's worried he won't have that distinction all to himself much longer. Shula thinks this year's Colts or Saints are each capable of winning three more games in the regular season and three in the postseason and join his 1972 Miami Dolphins in finishing a season with an unblemished record. "They're a legitimate concern," Shula said of the Colts and Saints in an interview with the Fox affiliate in Orlando. "I'm rooting secretly inside that somebody beats them." But Shula insists that he and his former players aren't the spoilsports they're sometimes portrayed as. The coach was effusive with his praise of Colts quarterback Peyton Manning and Saints quarterback Drew Brees, and he said he could even see the teams both being 18-0 and meeting each other in the Super Bowl. If that happens, Shula says, he'll be the first to reach out to the winning coach. "We're very proud of that but we're not a bunch of angry old men that sit around and can't wait for that last undefeated team to get beat," Shula said. "If somebody breaks that record . . . I'm going to call that coach and congratulate him."Don Shula admits "concern" Colts or Saints could go unbeaten Posted by Michael David Smith on December 15, 2009 1:23 PM ET

FOXBORO, MA—Citing his season-ending injury and diminishing enthusiasm for the game, Patriots quarterback Tom Brady announced his retirement yesterday, and said he plans to spend more time with breath-takingly hot women. Brady says he hopes to live as normal a life as possible while traveling the world and having mind-blowing sex with women most men would never dream of even talking to. "I just feel like I’ve come to the point where my desire to play football has been outweighed by my desire to sleep with gorgeous women," a statement by Brady read. "I’ve had a lot of fun during my time with the Patriots, and I wish all my fans and teammates the best as I move forward." Brady’s agent says the three-time Super Bowl champ plans to have sex with stunningly attractive women in every country on Earth and hopefully sire enough children to form his own NFL team. When asked what Brady intended to do once he had successfully exchanged bodily fluids with every jaw-dropping woman in the world, Brady’s agent speculated that Tom might start having sex with normally straight men to further solidify his status as an unstoppable force of hunk. Despite the fact that Brady is not fluent in any language other than English, Brady’s agent assured SSNN that "all women speak quarterback." Many of Brady’s now-former teammates had nothing but praise for the future Hall-of-famer. RB Laurence Maroney told SSNN, "Now that he’s finished with football, it’s good to know he can focus on his hobbies—and having sex with flawless specimens of feminine beauty is just one of the many things Tom excels at. He’s earned a long, hard—ummm, I mean quiet–retirement." "I wish him the best of luck," said S Rodney Harrison. "He was a fantastic quarterback, but he was an even better lover—uh, not that I would know about that or anything." Even the normally bland Bill Belichick had nothing but kind things to say about the Pro Bowler. "I mean, I will never forgive him or any of his descendants for quitting before his contract was up, but even I recognize that Tom won’t be young forever—substantially longer than anyone his age, but certainly not forever—and when destiny calls, you’d better go to meet it." Former teammate and recently DUI’d SS Lawyer Milloy told SSNN, "To me Brady really is a ‘what if’ story. He was always constantly exhausted from nailing babes at all hours of the day. All the physical exertion he put himself through with the ladies makes me wonder just what he would have been had he gone to bed at a normal hour instead of cruising around, picking out the hottest chick in a crowd and dragging her away to ferociously make love to her. It boggles the mind to think what he could have been." Matt Cassel could not be reached for comment as he was uncontrollably weeping in a corner. Meanwhile, Brady will be housed at Shady Valleys Stud Farm, just outside of Boston. He is currently accepting applicants who wish to mate with him
POLIAN CALLS OUT REF, KIND OF Posted by Mike Florio on September 23, 2008, 4:47 p.m. EDT Though despite "shaking in anger" he opted not to address after Sunday’s loss to the Jaguars the interference call that extended the drive that culminated in a game-winning field goal, Colts G.M. Bill Polian alluded to the situation during his Monday radio show the disappointing outcome. "I can’t think of a worse night I’ve had after a ball game since the loss in Foxboro in ‘o3," Polian said. "Interestingly enough it was the same referee on the game." The audio is available at the Colts’ official web site. The only problem with Polian’s assertion is that it wasn’t the same referree. During the 2003 AFC title game in Foxborough, the referee was Walt Coleman. On Sunday, it was James Coleman. (We don’t know whether they are related.) But even though Polian was factually incorrect, he seems to be implying that the referee had a bias against the Colts, and that’s the kind of thing that could get Polian fined, since the league prohibits at a minimum criticism of the integrity of officiating.http://www.profootballtalk.com/2008/09/23/polian-calls-out-ref-kind-of/#comments
