“In the first pick of the NFL Draft, the Indianapolis Colts select Andrew Luck from Stanford University!”
That’s what we’re all expecting to hear on Thursday when the 2012 NFL draft opens. But is it the right choice?
Indianapolis Colts owner Jim Irsay has made some bold moves this off-season in preparation of rebuilding the franchise. We’ve seen Pro Bowl starting center go to the Packers, Pierre Garcon go to the Redskins, release linebacker Gary Brackett (whom rumors say may retire completely), tight end Dallas Clark, running back Joseph Addai, defensive back Melvin Bullitt, quarterback Curtis Painter, and um….oh yeah, that Peyton Manning guy got kicked off the team too, remember him?
After trading for Drew Stanton from the Jets, the Colts are still in need of a ball handler. With all the hype focused on the Luck vs. RG3 debate, it makes one think there are only two quarterbacks available in the draft this year. The guy no one seems to be talking about is Kirk Cousins.
Exactly my point. Kirk Cousins hasn’t gotten the hype, the flash or the media following of Luck and Griffin, but that may be a good thing. Cousins has been dismissed throughout his high school and football career as being too short, not brawny enough to lead a team from the shotgun. However, he’s turned to something else to prove his worth; his brain. Cousins has a great eye for analyzing defenses and being able to move the chains not by sheer brutality but by being a smart QB.
Wait….wasn’t there another QB Indianapolis had for a while that wasn’t the strongest or best ball tosser in the league but was definitely one of the smartest, able to pick up apart defenses in the blink of an eye? Oh yeah, that Peyton Manning guy. Yeah, that seemed to work out pretty well for quite a while, didn’t it?
So should Irsay and the Colts pass on Luck to get the QB known for his football analytics? Seemed to work out pretty good last time.
This 61 year old Vietnam veteran (thank you for your service, sir) becomes the oldest football player in history on ANY level when he made the team as a kicker. Click here to read the inspiring story.
Three high school football players, offensive linemen saved a pregnant from a burning, overturned truck. Click here to read the incredible story.
I love the two quotes: “It was only a mid-sized truck.” and “We’re football players, I knew we could do it.” Heck yeah!
Ever heard of Bo Jackson? He was an all star football player….AND all star baseball player. Not in high school…IN THE PROS!
Ever heard of Deion Sanders? He was an all star football player that played offense AND defense.
The Amoako brothers are twins from Texas who play high school football, and they play it very well. What position? Offense. Defense. Both. Which one? Both. Which twin? Both. That’s right, EACH one of these brothers alone is a double threat, able to play wide receiver and defensive back very well. Put ‘em together and you’ve got a very, very hard to stop, high flying, full of action football team that is going to a LOT of fun to watch. Keep your eye on these boys, they very well might end up on your TV screen on Sunday afternoon in a few years.

This is ridiculous! The Vikings want a new stadium. If ANY team in the NFL deserves a new stadium it’s the team that finished up last year with the ROOF CAVED IN! (Click here for that amazing 49 second video) . The team says they’ll put up $407 MILLION and will raise $300 MILLION through sale of luxury seats, naming rights and a voluntary income tax on NFL players. That’s right, THE PLAYERS THEMSELVES OFFER TO HELP PAY FOR A NEW STADIUM! (Name ONE of the Colts that offered to put up their own money! PAYton wasn’t giving up any of his cash!). So the Vikings asked the state to impose a HALF cent increase on sales take to help pay for the other $350 million….and the Minnesota gov’t is balking at the idea.
This is MUCH, MUCH better deal than Indianapolis (or any other city I’ve heard of for that matter) getting on a new stadium to keep their gridiron heroes local.
Don’t take my word for it, read the lunacy for yourself here.

It’s my favorite time of the year: FOOTBALL SEASON! So, in honor of the best damned sport ever (this has been proven and verified by scientists throughout the world and reproven for several generations. If you don’t believe me, just ask me, I’ll tell ya.) I will be blogging every Sunday about cool NFL stories, I can’t wait to have my Monday Morning Coach on the Couch updates and on Tuesdays I’ll let you know how my fantasy team is doing so you’ll find out if I know what I’m talking about or not (hint: I don’t).
Not interested in football? That’s okay (not really, I’ll pray for you to be healed of your heinous condition) I also love SATURDAY MORNING CARTOONS! I’m not talking about the crap that we see on TV today, I’m talking about the GOOD STUFF! So stay tuned for cool pictures, links, quick vids of your favorite old cartoons and comics. here’s the best part: I’m going to make all the posts replyable (is that a word? I don’t think it is….) but you’ll be able to reply and even make requests! How cool is that?!
I’m also starting a series titled SAY WHAT?! featuring weird stories from around the globe and YOU’RE BLESSED IF… with the cutesy stuff that’ll make ya go hmmmmm……or make you fall into a diabetic coma, either way is good with me. Enjoy!
This is gonna be awesome, stay tuned and tell your friends!
