    Colts WR Deon Cain working out with NFL Legend

    Lol... Maybe Moss will have Cain downing Moon Pies & Pepsis for pregame snacktime....

    Andrew got his wallet returned

    I lost my wallet once... Then spent the following 48 making all the necessary phones calls, canceling cards & accounts, requesting new insurance info & a trip to the dmv for a license, etc... Then, of course, shortly after going through all the trouble, someone found & returned the wallet, all of the contents intact... Ha... Whats that called? Murphy's Law or something??? Anyways, wonder how far along Luck was into that whole process of cancelling & renewing all his stuff before his wallet was returned!!! My faux pas was several years ago before I had fully embraced the "paperless" process of having all accounts & everything filled out online, so, i suppose replacing everything would be much easier today... Still not a fun process... Lol... Anyways, its a fun off season story...

    Sanchez makes All-Under 25 Team (NFL.com)

    Awesome post & you bring up an interesting point. It may just be me, but I've always found it interesting that throughout history some teams have just developed an "identity"... If you think of the Bears or Steelers you generally think strong defenses, etc. Has anyone ever considered how the Indy Colts have had a fairly consistent run of kicker/punter combos & that it has almost become part of the teams identity? Biasucci & Stark Vanderjagt & Smith Vinateri & MacAffee Anyways just a crazy thought. I know some fans aren't big on the kicking component, but I've always respected that aspect of the game.

    Grigson Lands a Job in Seattle

    Lol... Maybe something like that. While it may be waaaay misleading, Grigson does have a GM of the year nod on his resume... It felt really weird typing that out...

    Eagles not going to whitehouse

    Im not sure, but, after hearing Chris Long discuss his reasoning behind politely declining his White House invite, I think moral character may have also played a role in his decision.

    Eagles not going to whitehouse

    Not 100% sure why it was shut down, but I think it was likely a result of the level of reports coming in from the thread, coupled with the fact that some posters began calling out other posters specifically by name.

    Eagles not going to whitehouse

    No I think it has become divisive too. Their message seems to be lost on many who are not looking at what they are saying only that it is occurring during the anthem & in turn focusing on that...

    My response was that I don't agree with the premise that this isn't a political play by the president. It all seems so very devisive.

    Eagles not going to whitehouse

    Not speaking for all mods, but, when the protests started, there was an obvious intersection between sports & politics. At the time mods let the conversation go, keeping the discussion centralized in one thread, and asking that posters keep posts respectful etc. Since then, when specific events have occurred, like the current situation, a discussion on the specific topic has been allowed with the same expectation that things stay respectful & on topic.

    Right because there is no other reason why someone wouldn't want to associate with, or have their picture taken with the President.

    Lol... O.k.

    Eagles not going to whitehouse

    Chris Long is pretty vocally upset about his image being used & is on record as saying it was "well before the anthem, praying during pregame activities." He has also stated that he was one of the many players who had decided not to attend the White House event prior to the NFLs decision, because he, like some of the other players (Torrey Smith has also given interviews) did not want to visit a president with the personal history that the current president has...

    Eagles not going to whitehouse

    Lol... Not sure what is worse, or more disrespectful to the American flag? Kneeling as a form of peaceful protest, (an action that in this case literally can not be discerned from the act of prayer) or using the national anthem & name of fallen vererans as a propaganda piece in a clearly divisive piece of culture war.

    Eagles not going to whitehouse

    Interesting, reports are saying that apparently Fox news has been using pictutes/images of Eagles players in pre-game prayer to look like they were participating in anthem protests... Lol... Am I the only one who is flummoxed by the irony?

    Lol. This issue is getting to be too much. High drama at its finest & somehow manages both comedy & tragedy all at the same time...
