    The majority of philly fans didnt believe the hype and it was a dumb comment from a dumb player. We need a year like this one to really rebuild instead of heading to the play offs and getting nothing. We need a fresh start at HC and a really strong draft. I love for the eagles to grab Winston Moss from GB for our next coach.

    Id love the eagles to go Manti Teo/ Vontaze Burfict/Luke Keuchly with our first overall. I cant decide which one id choose out of the three

    The Colts may not want Andrew Luck, sounds weird... But a guy called Payton Manning has told the owner of the Colts Jim Irsay not to draft Luck!!!

    Some college football news.....

    The Obama administration was unlikely to challenge the legality of its selection process of the BCS & the chairman of the BCS said this during the last 72 hours....

    That my friends would for sure open a can of worms if play off/final series were to be found illegal.... Bill Hancock, the BCS executive director just proves how illegal & croupt the BCS is.... Schools that don't play within the Pac12, Big 12, Big 10 & SEC are just wasting there time while this criminal is in charge....

    Just hoping the losser from LSU-Bama game tomorrow losses and oklahoma state, Standford goes down as well.... then Boise state & university of Houston are the only unbeaten teams at the end of the season.... This will show the NCAA isn't running college football but the four power conferences are!!!!

    If this was in Australia the ACCC would be all over it after one season!!!!

    Peyton probably has 2-3 more years (if fit) they need to think of the future, and when will they have an opportunity to get the first pick again, but from waht I hear Luck hasn't been setting the world on fire.

    The Packers let Favre go for the good of the team maybe the Colts could "retire" Peyton to Miami in say 2 years and promote Luck or another QB?

    If Manning don't want Luck he better get fit soon cause I cannot see them winning without him.

    Sorry fot the late reply.

    The news comming out of the 0-9 Colts for the past week has been weird if your a true Colts fan....
    They say he'll be training/playing in December, so the front office can review his contract.... If he comes back in the last 2-4 weeks of the season & shows the world his the best QB around that will mean the Colts are going to trade him for a few number one & some second & third picks over the comming years.... If he comes back & breaks down, he'll most likely be cut.... Payton's days at the Colts may be numbered for the reason the Colts front office thinks he cannot play out his 5 year $140 million contract.... If his on there books on march 1st they will owe him $28 million & Luck, with some few more second & third picks will get just $70 million over the same period of Payton's contract under the new CBA agreement.....

    If fit Maddog78 happy to see Manning 18 in Dolphins colours for 2-3 years, but not at the cost of 2 number 1 picks, couple second round picks & third round picks.... great player but remember he is closer to 40 then 30!!!
    Happy for the Fins to give the Colts rounds 1, 2, 3 & 4 for the next draft in April for the number one over all pick....

    0-10 what a season!

    We need to think of depth and not be so reliant on one player!

    If anyone follows college football & the bowl championship serie (BCS).... This is the NRL verison of the BCS done by one of the NCAA's computers (Massey Ratings), what works out the top two teams in the BCS...
    • Kenneth Massey is the owner of this complex computer system. He was a PH.D candidate of Mathematics at Virginia Tech. Only the score, venue, and date of each game are used to calculate the Massey ratings. However, Massey calculates an offensive and defensive ratings which combine to produce a power ranking as well. The overall team rating is a merit based quantity, and is the result of applying a Bayesian win-loss correction to the power rating.

    The Rams weak schedule is the reason they missed on the #1 pick & they flogged the Colts (33-10) in a preseason games in August what really should of counted... What I'm hearing at the present time the Rams will look to trade the #2 pick for future picks, but that will come down to who will be there next head coach???

    Jeff Fisher met with Dolphins owner Steve Ross on Tuesday, but most senior NFL reporters think Fisher will end-up in St Louis because former staff members from Bud Adams team from his Titans days what work with the Rams will push Fisher to Missiour!!!

    While Miami, Washington, NY Jets, Jacksonville & the 49ers are reported to have put there hands up for Colts #18....
