Throwback Thursday: A Scary Good Game

Throwback Thursday: A Scary Good Game

Since Halloween is tomorrow, this week's Throwback Thursday looks at one of the Colts most memorable games on the holiday. It also happens to be one of the Colts (and the league's) most memorable games. And it all happened on Monday Night Football. I’m aware that the Indianapolis Colts and the New York Giants have played in some very big games in the past. Some might say, great games. However, I want to focus on Halloween instead. That certainly has something to do with the fact that it is both tomorrow, and one of my favorite holidays. I’m also sure that the second I mentioned...

Patriots practice notes: Alan Branch not spotted

FOXBOROUGH, Mass. -- Recently signed New England Patriots defensive lineman Alan Branch was not spotted at practice on Thursday. The 6-foot-6, 325-pound Branch was signed by the Patriots on Wednesday and practiced with the team that day. Branch was brought in to shore up the team’s run defense as he is a big-bodied lineman who can play defensive end in a 3-4 or defensive tackle in a 4-3. Defensive end Chandler Jones was also not in attendance for practice on Thursday.

Adam Podlesh: 'I thought to myself, at best, I'm going to have a special needs child and wife'

The harrowing story of the former Steelers punter Adam Podlesh, who was robbed of a chance to make the team's 2014 roster due to a placental abruption suffered by his wife during delivery of their son, Carter. Adam Podlesh will go down in Steelers transactions history as a player who signed a contract with the team. He never donned a uniform, or even punted in a practice, let alone even a preseason game. He never made the roster. Podlesh's wife was pregnant with the couple's son when Podlesh signed a 1-year deal with the team in April. She was due around the time training camp would begin....

Hey, Bears: Grass isn’t always greener than turf

Bears coach Marc Trestman missed his cue. The slipshod condition of Soldier Field’s grass surface during the Bears’ loss Oct. 19 to the Miami Dolphins — with players on both teams slipping and falling — led to the inevitable question for Trestman last week: Does the condition of the surface affect his game-planning? It was Trestman’s opportunity to lobby Bears ownership and the Chicago Park District to end years of stubbornness and install an artificial...

Bleach Social: Where Are You Watching Texans-Eagles?

Bleach Social: Where Are You Watching Texans-Eagles?

After two weeks on the road, the Houston Texans returns to NRG Stadium to host the Philadelphia Eagles on Sunday. Where will you be watching? You'll have to forgive DeMeco Ryans, Connor Barwin, James Casey, Bryan Braman, Andrew Gardner, Donnie Jones, and Jeff Maehl if they wander into the wrong locker room on Sunday. It's Old Home Week for those former Texans, and I know that I'm eager to see how they fare against their former employers. Hopefully, they're all awful. I trust you'll be watching as well, so I ask you: What your plans for Texans-Eagles on Sunday afternoon? Will you be at...
Geno Smith (shoulder) resumes throwing

Geno Smith (shoulder) resumes throwing

FLORHAM PARK, N.J. -- Quarterback Geno Smith, who didn't throw in practice Wednesday because of an ailing right shoulder, resumed throwing Thursday during the 30-minute window open to the media. Smith, who lost his starting job to Michael Vick, was non-committal Wednesday on whether he'd be able to assume the No. 2 role when the New York Jets face the Kansas City Chiefs Sunday at Arrowhead Stadium. He said he was taking it day-by-day. That he was able to throw Thursday bodes well for his chances of suiting up.

Giants' Rashad Jennings will miss third straight game Monday

EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. -- The New York Giants hoped starting running back Rashad Jennings would be able to return from his knee injury and play Monday Night against the Colts. He will not. Giants coach Tom Coughlin said Thursday that there was no chance Jennings would be able to play Monday, leaving the running game once again in the hands of rookie Andre Williams and faded veteran Peyton Hillis. Jennings will miss his third game in a row since spraining his knee in the Week 5 victory against the Falcons.

Ravens players love to be hated in Pittsburgh

The Pittsburgh Steelers and Baltimore Ravens embody what a NFL rivalry should be, and that has gone into their fan bases as well. Turns out, the Ravens players love the angst they receive from Steelers fans. Even without names like Ray Lewis, Joey Porter, Ed Reed and Hines Ward, the Pittsburgh Steelers and Baltimore Ravens rivalry is alive and well. The disdain these two teams have embodied for over a decade has crept into their respective fan bases, and for the Ravens, they love being hated by Steeler Nation. "Folks [are] just looking at us like, 'Man, I hope you just bomb it tomorrow,"...
