Yo, Miami, if you give me a fourth of what you’re paying Korn Ferry, I’ll go find a coach for you. Or, hell, I’ll just give it to you here: Chuck Pagano.

WATCH: Bengals Tackle Can't Stop Dwight Freeney And His Killer Spin Move; Sacks Andy Dalton

Dwight Freeney was just sitting at home when the Arizona Cardinals called him up and asked him he wanted to come play.

Dr. Blue’s Injury Assessment: Andrew Luck

“Breaking News – Andrew Luck.” With those 4 words, my otherwise-pretty-good week turned to mush. When I read them, the blood completely drained from my face, my heart sank to my toes, and my stomach… well I’m not sure how far that fell but I’m sure I was a few pulses away from major surgery. Had one of our loyal readers reached out to me that day to ask me to reprise...

WATCH: Coastal Carolina's Attempt At Swinging Gate Almost As Bad As The Indianapolis Colts Atempt

When the Indianapolis Colts ran their infamous trick play on fourth down last month it was widely perceived as the worst trick play attempt of all time.

Andre Johnson needs to step up for the Colts

This is not what Ryan Grigson envisioned when he signed former All-Pro wide receiver Andre Johnson in the offseason. Then again, a lot of Grigson’s additions have not panned out either. Johnson is in the first year of a three year deal worth $21 million. That has lead to just 24 catches for 288 yards and three touchdowns. The fact that Johnson has more drops, four, than touchdowns...

Three stats the Colts must continue to excel at

The Indianapolis Colts are not the team we thought they would be this season. The offense is stagnent at times, and the defense (the oldest in the league) has been torched by big plays all season.

Texas A&M suing Indianapolis Colts over use of '12th Man'

Texas A&M is extremely protective of its “12th Man” trademark, and it is not afraid to take teams to court. The Seattle Seahawks famously paid the school for years, for permission to use the phrase, but this year switched their official signage at CenturyLink Field to read “Home of the 12s” instead.
