  1. Review the Colts rushing offense? That shouldn’t take very long. Actually, my dawg Mr. Addai was coming on when he got hurt. My beloved Colts needs to re-sign that young man.

  2. “Could free agent DE Vernon Gholston rejuvenate his career…”
    When was it ever juvenated? He’s done il zipperino since coming into the league! Biggest top ten bust in the last five years this side of Jamarcus Russell.

  3. doesn’t everyone have a strained relationship, with cam cameron? the ravens will not win a super bowl with that jerk as the coordinator!

  4. I love how Jason Cole thinks his opinion matters or anyone in the media for that matter. If those guys (mainly Cole) think for one second that their input is going to change the minds of NFL GMs they need to re-evaluate their intelligence. And if any GMs opinion on a player can be swayed by someone like Cole, they also need to re-evaluate their intelligence…AND lose their job.

  5. No thanks on Gholston to Philly. If he couldn’t produce with Rex Ryan he wont produce anywhere.

  6. Jason Cole honestly evaluates player’s skills by their press sessions…what a d@uche bag extraordinaire.
    Does that make Dick Cavet an NFL Scout? Hey, Truman Capote is a great interview…suit him up!

    By the way, I heard a “rumor” that JasonCole wears gnormous women’s panties.
