Andrew Luck says he’s “absolutely” ready for the NFL

As if there was any doubt, Andrew Luck says he’s ready to leave college after Stanford plays in the Fiesta Bowl. Luck said on ESPN that he considers himself “absolutely” prepared to leave college and enter the NFL draft. Luck does have one remaining season of NCAA eligibility and could play at Stanford in 2012…

Kravitz calls for Irsay to start over

Once upon a time, there was a perception that the Indianapolis media kowtowed to the Colts. Not anymore. Bob Kravitz of the Indianapolis Star, whose recent critique of the father-son exercise in front-office nepotism prompted Bill Polian to indirectly call Kravitz a rat (and Bob adjusted his Twitter avatar accordingly), has now called for owner…

PFT’s Week 12 picks

The bad news is that I gained no ground on Rosenthal last week in the picks contest. The good news?  I lost no ground, either. We matched our records in Week 11 with 10-4 efforts; he picked the Dolphins when I foolishly trusted the Bills.  Fortunately, Rosenthal sided with the Jaguars while a scored a…

Plenty of teams could block Bears’ effort to get Orton

It’s a nice, feel-good Thanksgiving week story.  Bears quarterback Jay Cutler breaks a thumb.  The Broncos have cut a former Bears quarterback who’d like to play in Chicago again.  And there’s nothing more natural than a homecoming on the fourth Thursday in November. The only problem?  At least 22 teams can provide the flight delay…

Wednesday morning one-liners

Bills LB Andra Davis has been selected as the team’s Ed Block Courage Award winner. Now that the Dolphins look like they won’t Suck for Luck, the question is raised in Miami: Should they be planning for Manning? Asked about a report that he made a profane comment to his son after the Jets game,…

Colts make some nondescript roster moves

At a time when it appears that the Colts’ formula for winning the “Suck of Luck” contest entails doing nothing to significantly improve a struggling franchise, the Colts can’t be accused of complete inaction. On Tuesday, the team made some roster-churning moves. Specifically, the Colts signed cornerback Morgan Trent.  They also signed tight end Anthony…

Dolphins deny claim that Henne “packed it in”

Leave it to the Dolphins to help spice up an otherwise boring afternoon. The 0-7 team, which should have better things to worry about the day before a game against the surging Chiefs in Kansas City, has issued a statement refuting not a published report or something from a national TV broadcast but an apparent…

Oliver Luck thinks it’s “stupid” for fans to think teams will “Suck for Luck”

Like Giants quarterback Eli Manning, the first pick in the 2004 draft, Stanford quarterback Andrew Luck has a father who played pro football.  Though Oliver Luck, former West Virginia quarterback and current Athletics Director in Morgantown, didn’t enjoy the same success as Archie Manning, the elder Luck spent half a decade as an NFL quarterback.…

Polian wants Peyton to practice, not play

In his weekly radio show, which once upon a time streamed on the Internet but which has since been restricted to the Indianapolis airspace, Colts Vice Chairman Bill Polian (did he ask for the most sinister-sounding title possible?) said that quarterback Peyton Manning remains on the active roster not so that he can play in…

Week Eight Monday 10-pack

It’s the midpoint of the season, sort of.  Eight weeks are in the books, but only eight teams have played eight games.  For the other 24, the season won’t hit the turn until next week. And while we’re starting to get a feel for the good teams and the bad teams and the in-between teams,…

Titans don’t need Chris Johnson to handle Colts

The Colts continue to search for rock bottom. The Titans are back over .500. What else did we learn during Tennessee’s 27-10 win Sunday? 1. Chris Johnson is now a useless appendage on the Titans offense. When the game was on the line in the fourth quarter, Johnson mostly watched Javon Ringer from the sideline.…

Mike Nolan defends Dolphins’ scheme: “We just need to execute”

After the Dolphins allowed Broncos quarterback Tim Tebow to run in a game-tying two-point conversion on Sunday, multiple Miami players said they had the wrong defense called. That sounds like an indictment of Dolphins defensive coordinator Mike Nolan, and so it probably shouldn’t be surprising that Nolan said the fault really lies with the players.…

Dolphins players not fans of Tebow Day

Dolphins tight end Anthony Fasano isn’t happy with “sick” fans of the team, who want the won-loss record to be sufficiently bad to secure dibs on Andrew Luck.  Fasano and at least one teammate also aren’t happy with the franchise’s decision to celebrate Tebow’s college team during a Dolphins home game. “[I]t was awful,” Fasano…

Fasano says fans pushing “Suck for Luck” are “sick”

The Dolphins are 0-6 on the season, 1-12 at home since December 2009.  And plenty of Dolphins fans are trying to put some “fun” in dysfunction by hoping, privately and/or publicly, that the team loses enough more times this year to earn the privilege of drafting Stanford quarterback Andrew Luck. Members of the team don’t…

Dorrell, Bowles could be candidates to replace Sparano

The item from MDS regarding the personnel who were assigned to try to keep Broncos quarterback Tim Tebow from converting a game-tying two-point conversion underscores the extent to which the Dolphins bungled its defense against the play everyone knew was coming — shotgun formation, snap to Tebow, brief hesitation, run into the line. Considering that…
