The Indianapolis Colts are looking to make a playoff push as they begin the second half of the season in Jacksonville on “Thursday Night Football.” Andrew Luck will make his primetime debut, four days after his rookie-record 433 yards passing in a comeback win over the Miami Dolphins. While the Colts’ passing proficiency has been remarkable, when you go inside the numbers the true key to their 5-3 start has been their ability to convert on third down. The Colts are a league-best 42.1 percent converting on third downs of six yards or more. Their talented group of receivers, led by veteran Reggie Wayne, has been able to shred zone coverages and Luck has made opposing defenses pay with his […]

Nearly lost amid the craziness of yesterday’s 30-27 win for the Colts over the Packers was that WR Reggie Wayne had the best day of his career. Yes, his career. With 13 catches, 212 yards and a TD, Wayne was unreal. Oh, and he was fighting through leg cramps to make it happen, according to Yahoo! Sports. It’s times like these when I like to bring up my original thoughts on the situation when Wayne signed a three-year, $17.5 million deal to return as a 33-year old.

Cam Newton is an undroppable in most fantasy leagues, and it’s probably a good thing, too, considering most impetuous fantasy enthusiasts would at least consider dropping him after another disappointing game in Week 5. Like you’re sitting around, drinking a few beers, watching Dexter after the Sunday night game and thinking, “(expletive) it, I’m done with this guy.”

The NFC North is a two-team race, just as we all figured. What we didn’t figure was it would be the Chicago Bears (well, we kinda figured them) and the Minnesota Vikings (nobody saw it coming). The Bears and Vikings won in a pair of laughers, but the Packers?
Is Brandon Lloyd in store for a career-year with the New England Patriots? If history is any indication, the future looks bright.

Normally, I would make a joke here about all of the attention given to the Tim Tebow press conference, but I’m going to lead off with some Tebow news so it would be rather hypocritical.
Reggie Wayne and Marques Colston are staying home, but Robert Meachem will be wearing a new uniform in 2012. Michael Fabiano has the latest.
Reggie Wayne‘s absence from the Colts’ roster didn’t last long, as the receiver agreed to a three-year deal to return to the team on the first day of free agency, a team source told NFL Network’s Albert Breer.

The Broncos are in the market for a veteran quarterback, which means Tim Tebow could be fighting for his starting spot next season.
There’s no reason not to be optimistic about what could happen if your team wins the Peyton Manning sweepstakes. Now is the time.

After a great workout with the Saints, Randy Moss could sign in New Orleans and it’s hard to think of a better fantasy fit for the veteran receiver.

Could Peyton Manning and Reggie Wayne team up with another squad? It’s a definite possibility.

Receiver Reggie Wayne told NFL Network he hopes to stay with the Colts but understands the realities of the business.

Now that the countdown to Super Bowl XLVI has officially begun, some of the attention is off Rob Gronkowski’s ankle and turning toward Ahmad Bradshaw’s foot.
