    Indianapolis Colts owner Jim Irsay faces a preliminary misdemeanor charge of driving while intoxicated and four felony counts of possession of a controlled substance after being arrested Sunday night. According to Hamilton County (Ind.) police, Irsay was arrested in the Indianapolis suburb of Carmel at about 3 a.m. ET. Irsay was observed stopping in the middle of the road and failed to signal when pulling over.

Several Schedule IV bottles of prescription medication were found in Irsay's car. "Multiple prescription drugs...

    Peyton Manning spent his 14th season with the Indianapolis Colts as a spectator, the future Hall of Fame quarterback missing every game because of a lingering neck injury that required several surgeries. He will spend his 15th NFL season on another team. Manning and the Colts are parting ways, according to a report, bringing to an end the four-time MVP's career with the team that drafted him No. 1 overall in 1998, then watched him start every game for 13 years. ESPN, citing sources close to the team, said the announcement will be made at a press conference Wednesday. The...

You’re looking forward to college; feeling like you’re on top of the world, all set to run off and explore everything life has in store for you. Four days before my graduation, that’s exactly how I felt. But then something happened that changed things in a hurry: my mother passed away. Suddenly, my entire future looked a lot different.

It was a thrilling win, with the outcome in doubt until Tracy Porters' 74 yard "pick six" with 3:12 left in the game and the Colts driving for the potential tying score. The other big winner in this game was sports books. Evidence shows that bettors love two things: favorites in point spread betting and the over on total betting. According to sportsbook.com, as of about 4pm Eastern on Sunday the line was the Colts -5 and the over-under was 57. Based on action at off-shore sports books,...

    Peyton Manning(notes) didn't shake hands with New Orleans Saints players after his Indianapolis Colts lost 31-17 in Super Bowl XLIV. Apparently some think this is a sign of poor sportsmanship from the NFL's greatest player. It's not. Walking off the field without congratulating Drew Brees(notes) may go against our misguided notion of what sportsmanship should be, but it wasn't at all disrespectful or bitter. It shows how much Peyton Manning wanted to win the game. And who can argue about that? LeBron James was caught up in a similar controversy during the NBA playoffs last year and the same thing...

    Americans are so polarized right now, even the Super Bowl's dividing them along party lines. Overall 32% of voters we polled on our last national survey said they'd be rooting for the New Orleans Saints this Sunday, with 22% going for the Indianapolis Colts and 46% expressing no preference. There's a significant partisan divide within those numbers, as Democrats prefer the Saints by a 36-21 margin while Republicans say they want the Colts to be victorious by a closer 26-25 spread. Independents lean toward the Saints as well, 33-20. Beyond the partisan divide it's also interesting to note that a...

    That was the question posed to Indianapolis Colts Head Coach Jim Caldwell. After hearing this question I started wondering if African American (I hate that title) Coaches were somehow inferior. I mean why else would a reporter feel the need to ask this question? Is it not the same to a Caucasian coach if he gets to the super bowl? Is it not the same level of coaching involved? Coach Caldwell did a fantastic job with his Football team this season, and not because he happens to be black. Your ethnicity does not give you an advantage in coaching football....

But the good I can do to glorify God along the way is my real purpose." For one more year at least, perhaps even a little longer than that, Dungy will continue to moonlight in those pursuits, to address with great purpose the duality of his life, and to chase both his ultimate vocation and his higher-profile avocation. And for at least one more season we're all the richer...

Though more tests have to be completed for the team to make a final determination, a source said Tuesday that Freeney might have suffered a Lisfranc injury in Sunday's loss to the San Diego Chargers. If additional tests verify the initial diagnosis of the midfoot injury, the source said Freeney will need season-ending surgery. Players who have suffered Lisfranc injuries, even those not needing surgical repair,...

Argument for the Indianapolis Colts as paladins who carry the banner of that which is beneficent: Sportsmanship, honesty, modesty, devotion to community, embrace of traditional small-town life, belief in higher power, even love of laughter. Argument for the New England Patriots as scoundrels in the service of that which is baleful: Dishonesty, cheating, arrogance, hubris, endless complaining even in success. The Patriots have three Super Bowl rings, but that jewelry is tarnished by their cheating scandal. They run up the score to humiliate opponents -- more on...
