You will find one thing about “traveled in solution to Europe to have medical doctors conduct a process not authorized in the United States” that truly gets the salivary glands a’rollin.
Peyton tried using to avoid having a 3rd neck surgical procedure by jet-setting to an undisclosed place in Europe to have stem-cell treatment done.
The process, in accordance to that bastion of well being understanding, Jay Glazer, goes a little one thing like this:
Ahhhh, Europe. Is there anything you cannot get there? You know … other than a first rate taco and a full set of actual teeth?
If you stayed up last night and caught Sunday Night Football, you saw the San Diego Chargers upset and romp over the Indianapolis Colts, 36-14.
The win was San Diego’s fourth straight victory, upping their record to six-5, a game behind Kansas City for first place within the AFC West and two back of the Pittsburgh Steelers for the ultimate Wild Card slot.
Every year, it kind of feels, the Chargers stumble out of the gate and we strive to put in writing them off. And each year, like clockwork, the Chargers get it rolling and head into January because the hottest team in football. They’re 24-5 after Halloween in three-plus seasons under the Norv, by far the most effective inside the NFL.
And they’re doing it this year without Vincent Jackson (injured after one play last night), Antonio Gates (in-and-out of the lineup), Malcom Floyd (nearly invisible for the past six weeks) and Ryan Matthews (missed four of the past six games).
The defense and special teams are improving by leaps and boundaries a week, and the schedule gets easier from here: Oakland, KC, SF at home … Cincinnati, Denver at the road.
They could end this season 11-5. And we’ll wonder how they did it. Maybe it is the song:
Chargers-Colts One-Liners [Pro Football Talk]
It’s probably not going to happen that The Indianapolis Colts and Peyton Manning’s agent would be able to beat the clock on a new contract.
Both sides say they have made progress on Manning’s deal though without rushing to finish the agreement, with less than a week to go before the league’s collective bargaining agreement expires.
Most thought the Colts would try to wrap up a deal for the only four-time MVP in league history before the CBA expires at the end of Thursday. And if the lockout begins, as expected Friday, things will become increasingly more complicated.
Players, agents and team officials are already debating whether franchise and transition tags will carry the same weight they would in a normal league year.
Teams are proceeding as if they will.
Two weeks ago, the Colts designated Manning their exclusive franchise player, a move designed to keep him off the free-agent market. If the tag sticks, as team officials contend, Manning could not negotiate with other teams. He also would make $23 million if he plays under the tag next season.
On Thursday night, during an interview in Indianapolis at the NFL combine, an unidentified team cracked the poise former Auburn quarterback Cam Newton tried to display while meeting with the media Saturday, a league source said.
Newton ran a quarterback sneak toward the end of the game rather than take a knee as he was instructed. An NFL assistant coach questioned Newton about why he disobeyed his coach’s orders in the BCS National Championship Game.
Newton was not expecting the NFL to ask him about the incident and did not have a favorable reaction. He got defensive.
During his long-awaited appearance before the media at the NFL scouting combine, before taking a single question, Newton attempted to put out a different fire.
The former Auburn quarterback, in a prepared statement, tried to clarify a recent comment in which he described himself as not only as a football player, but an entertainer and icon.
The Heisman Trophy winner spent his first minute at the podium on Saturday explaining where his focus will be in the future, and later said that he was at fault for being unclear. Newton noticed the wave of negative reaction and felt he was misunderstood.
His comment drew such a reaction because some say his swagger teeters on the edge of pure arrogance. In roughly 12 minutes at the podium, he referred to himself in the third person three times.
Missouri’s Blaine Gabbert isn’t conceding anything to him. Much of the buzz at the NFL combine has surrounded Auburn quarterback Cam Newton’s unusual decision to perform the complete battery of workouts this weekend.
Newton won the Heisman Trophy and a national championship, then declared himself eligible for the NFL draft a year early. Gabbert said he, Washington’s Jake Locker and Arkansas’ Ryan Mallett all are competing with Newton to be the first quarterback chosen.
Gabbert, who will wait until his pro day on March 17 to throw, said he expects the battle among the top quarterback prospects to continue until the late April draft no matter how well Newton performs at the combine.
Gabbert said he’ll have a formal interview with the Carolina Panthers, who have the No. 1 pick, on Saturday.
After winning the league’s top defensive honor, Sanders signed a five-year, $37.5 million contract but played in only nine regular-season games the next three seasons. That is why it was not a surprise that the Indianapolis Colts released him. Bob Sanders couldn’t stay healthy and the Indianapolis Colts couldn’t afford to keep investing in the oft-injured safety.
Team owner Jim Irsay released the 2007 NFL defensive player of the year Friday, announcing the decision less than 24 hours after he told reporters he would make a decision about Sanders’ future before March 3.
With safety Antoine Bethea signing a four-year, $27 million contract last summer; Melvin Bullitt, Sanders’ backup, emerging as a competent starter; and the Colts still trying to sign four-time league MVP Peyton Manning to a new long-term deal, there wasn’t enough room to keep Sanders.
Last month, Sanders’ agent, Tom Condon, told The Associated Press he “anticipated the same thing you do” when asked whether the Colts inquired about redoing Sanders’ contract or letting him hit the free-agent market. A message left for Condon Friday was not immediately returned.
When Sanders was healthy, he was one of the league’s top defenders.
The Kansas City Chiefs will have to be a bit more patient before they know the answer when quarterback Matt Cassel will make a come back after getting recovered from an appendectomy.
Cassel had to undergo an emergency surgery last week and was out of action on Sunday for the AFC West leaders, who sustained a loss by 31-0, at San Diego. Cassel said he is day to day, and was on hand at the Chiefs’ practice facility working out Monday after he did not travel to California over the weekend.
The National Football League side Indianapolis Colts (6-6) are making provision to make a blast on eh game alongside Tennessee Titans (5-7) on Thursday.
However both teams are coming off tough losses on Sunday, but neither team has the opportunity to dwell on it.
Jeff Fisher the head coach of Titans said to the reporters: “It’s a challenge for both teams; typically, your body clock is saying (Tuesday) is a day off. It’s the player’s normal day off to come in on their own, at their leisure, get a lift and work the soreness out.”
The National Football League side Indianapolis Colts have bolster the team with the news that defensive back David Pender returned from the practice squad and is on the active roster.
The Colts have announced on Wednesday that they have boost with David and on the other hand the club have placed the DB Bob Sanders on the injury reserve list with an injury on his biceps.
However Pender (6-0, 180, Rookie) will wear jersey number 34 and now he is pleased with his spell and set to strengthen his performance.
Gary Lawrence Brackett the middle linebacker of National Football League side Indianapolis Colts has revealed that he is planning to show up his ultimate and focus to change the rest of the four weeks left on this season.
Moreover the 30 year old veteran Brackett, who is the defensive captain, said while four weeks remain in the regular season, calling those games “regular-season” games may be inaccurate.
On the other hand the Colts have booked a place on the AFC South and now they are on the second place with 6-6 score.
