Ryan Grigson Profile from the Eagles Media guide


Current front runner for GM? Here's a profile on Grigson. Not much about the people he has drafted, but a good snap shot of who he is. Things I didn't know include that he was originally from Highland, IN and a Purdue Grad.

DeCosta staying in Baltimore


SB Nation NFL Editor Joel Thurman is reporting that Eric DeCosta will stay with the Ravens as Director of Player Personnel. Cross another name off the GM list. Other names I've heard include Tom Ciskowski from the Cowboys, David Caldwell (no relation, thank goodness!)former Colts scout who has been with the Falcons for 4 years, Ryan Grigson from the Eagles and, my personal guess for the eventual winner (no inside info, just a guess) Tom Telesco the Colts current Director of Player Personnel.

The Draft and This Weekend


As we all know, this week's game in Jacksonville will determine which team is on the clock and has "won" the Andrew Luck sweepstakes. Colts lose and the first pick is ours, Colts win and it...

In the Straight Up contest this week, TeBlows! (tell us how you really feel) led the way with 13 correct. It was a tough week overall with readers only getting 55% of the games correct. EVERYONE...

Indy Star Reports that Manning will NOT practice this season


So here's the plan. The current face of the Franchise will fail his physical after January 1 so he can continue to rehab with team doctors during the off-season. If healthy, contact with team personnel is very restricted in the off-season. As much as I would love to see him in a practice, I think I prefer to have him working with team doctors and getting a good feel for his progression during the off-season. Your thoughts?

Opening Lines for Week 12


New QB and Defensive coordinator heading into New England leads to what? That's right, Patriots favored by 21 as the line opened today! My only real question is; is it high enough? Wow...

Jack Del Rio out in Jacksonville


We have known for a long time that Jacksonville wouldn't go anywhere with Del Rio at the helm. I heard a report that the "regression of Blaine Gabbert" was one of the reasons he was let go during the season. What does it say about the Colts when our QB has done nothing but regress throughout the season and our entire staff is intact and being praised weekly?

Shame Report from


We can add this to the Poke Caldwell campaign. He comes in at number 2. The best part is that the Shady Brady and Bill Bili-cheat come in at number one. Nothing better than trying to get a rise out of Caldwell and hearing someone bring up Spygate too. I don't know about you, but I needed a moment of levity in this pathetic excuse for a football season. Enjoy the video. The guy making it actually picked the Colts to beat the Falcons. Boy does he feel stupid.

Week 8 Stampede Blue Fantasy/Picks Update
