    Should fantasy owners trust Colts’ Richardson?

    Colts, NFL July 2, 2014 at 8:24 am

    By Thomas Harrigan | TSN Fantasy Sports Writer Trent Richardson has fooled a lot of people in two years. The Cleveland Browns. The Indianapolis Colts. Fantasy owners. But not Jim Brown. Before the Browns picked Richardson third overall in 2012, Brown, one of the greatest running backs in NFL history, […]

    His back turned to the media, Reggie Wayne apologized for the delay while tapping and swiping his cellphone screen, trying to secure the best possible seat assignment for his flight out of town.

    The NFL is often referred to as a copycat league, but the better description may be “groupthink league,” at least in a psychological sense. Football is hardly the only professional sport exhibiting the groupthink mentality. Major League Baseball was inundated by analytics after author Michael Lewis published “Moneyball” in 2003, […]

    NFL January 1, 2014 at 9:46 am

    One man’s mistake is generally another’s opportunity. Hours after their now annual loss in Pittsburgh, the Cleveland Browns kicked off “Black Monday” a little early, firing their head coach Rob Chudzinski after just one season. Four more teams followed suit the next day when the Minnesota Vikings (Leslie Frazier), Washington […]

    So what wins in today’s NFL, that high-powered offense or the stingy D? We’re about to find out on Sunday night when the AFC’s immovable object meets its irresistible force as the 9-0 Kansas City Chiefs visit the 8-1 Denver Broncos in the first of two matchups over the next […]

    Colts’ midseason grades: defense, special teams

    Brunos Blog, Colts, NFL November 6, 2013 at 9:26 am

    The question mark is becoming an exclamation point.
