1 I think if records don't matter much to the Colts, then why did Indianapolis play Dallas Clark and Reggie Wayne only long enough to get to 100 catches for the season in Sunday's game against the Bills? It's fine that they did. I like when players want to leave their footprints on NFL history. But to say that Clark's (below) or Wayne's catching 100 balls is more significant than becoming the first team ever to go 19--0 is just flat wrong. And that's what the Colts have said.
2 I think if John Fox had his druthers, he'd coach out the lame-duck season of his contract in Carolina in 2010, then enter the 2011 season as the hottest coach on the market, a season that may see a third of the teams in the league changing head men.
3 I hear what coach Sean Payton is saying about keeping his guys healthy, but I've never seen a No. 1 seed go into the tournament as cold as the Saints.
