    I'm looking forward to Revis v. Hilton this year. It will be exciting when Hoodie's crew rolls into Indy. The Colts have so many marquee games this year. Baltimore, Cincy, Philly, Washington, and NE are all big home games. I bet that NE and Washington will be SNF/MNF games. Away games are big too. There is a Luck-Manning rematch in Denver. We also travel to NYG, Pitt, and Dallas. None of them were playoff teams last year, but they are all very historical franchises and we only go to Dallas and NYG once every eight years. I bet that Colts @ Dallas will be a SNF/MNF game. The Colts will be all over the SNF/MNF landscape next year. Can't wait.

    I don't think Colts/Dallas will be an SNF/MNF game it will probably be a 4 PM game though. I think that Redskins/Colts will be an MNF game.

    True, CBS probably gets p*ssy if they try to take away one of the two Dallas home games that they get.

    Man, if we could land Mack and Nicks, that would be a pretty awesome off-season.
    There are two types of quarterbacks in the league: Those whom over time, the league figures out ... and those who figure out the league.

    Hopefully Wilfork gets cut and we sign him for a discount..

    Vince Wilfork wants out of New England


    As big a deal as the Patriots made last night, they might be on the verge of having a bigger hole.

    According to Ian Rapoport of the NFL Network, Wilfork has asked the team for his release, after 10 seasons.

    The team approached him once about restructuring his contract, but that didnít go far. Heís scheduled to make a base salary of $7.5 million this year, and count $11.6 million against the salary cap.

    That is a number they donít want to pay for a 31-year-old coming off an Achilles injury.

    How they handle this one will be interesting, because they need that number off the books, but theyíd also blow a huge hole (pun absolutely intended) in the middle of their defense by letting him go.

    If they lose Wilfork, Brady will be the only player left who won a ring with the Pats.

    I can't say I blame them I mean he's 33 years old coming off an achilles injury that's risky.

    Yeah, it's big for a Pat not named Brady to make it 10 years with the team given how they usually get rid of guys before they are on the downside of their prime. I don't blame them for cutting bait at this point.

    I think he's our new Mike McGlynn.

    The Indianapolis Colts today signed free agent center Phil Costa.

    “Phil is a young, hard-nosed and physical center who has shown he can play at a winning level in our league,” said General Manager Ryan Grigson. “He will provide strong competition at the center position.”

    Costa, 6-3, 302 pounds, played in 26 games (20 starts) over the last four seasons (2010-13) with the Dallas Cowboys. In 2011, he started all 16 games for the first time in his career and blocked for quarterback Tony Romo to throw for 4,184 yards, 31 touchdowns and a career-high 102.5 passer rating. Costa also helped block for a Cowboys offense that ranked fifth in the NFC in passing yards and eighth in total yards and rushing yards.

    Costa was originally signed by the Cowboys as an undrafted free agent out of the University of Maryland on April 30, 2010. At Maryland, he played in 40 career games, including 30 starts, at the guard and center positions.

    I think that at that price he's the starter. The backup will make about half a Million

    The Colts are not going to be spending to the LT. They are smart and have to consider big contracts for Luck, Allen, Hilton, Fleener in the near future which means that Mathis, Wayne are short timers. If Costa isn't the starting C then it will be a rookie or second year guy particularly if they are still interested in someone like Nicks.

    I doubt that they want to waive a premier player in the near future as some teams against the cap are doing now. You may not like someone like Costa as starting but he may be a short term answer. Any body is better than Satele

    First off there is no luxury tax in the NFL, there is a hard cap, 2nd Costa contract is only 2 years which won't matter when Lucks contract comes into play, and honestly the comment about a rookie or second year guy if it is not him is a given, Grigson already said it is a competition. This is why he is not getting paid much because it is a competition, he is not locked in for the starting spot, but her is there to push competition and provide depth and that is what the amount of his contract suggest.

    Some of these premier players are being waived because the team gave them stupid contracts and they didn't want to pay at the end of the day, Browns were not against the cap when they waived Jackson. But honestly you have to invest money in your center, he is so valuable and if you don't and someone does not step up you are in big trouble, going through the center is the quickest path to the QB.

    And I am with Hypnotiq, we will see what happens as far as worst than Satele, not saying he will be but there really is not much to say that he won't be.
