    The Titans dominated the first quarter, but the refs decided that little Peyton Manning was being treated unfairly, so they had to help him. The calls were the most grotesque jokes I've ever seen.

    NEW YORK - The NFL upheld the penalty on leaping Simeon Rice (news), a call that gave the Indianapolis Colts (news) a second chance at a field goal that beat the Tampa Bay Buccaneers (news) in overtime. Rice was penalized Monday night for unsportsmanlike conduct after jumping in an attempt to block Mike Vangerjagt's unsuccessful 40-yard field goal. Vanderjagt received another chance and made a 29-yarder that caromed off the right upright. The Colts won 38-35 in overtime after rallying from a three-touchdown deficit in the last four minutes of regulation. The league confirmed Tuesday what referee Johnnie Grier...

    Johnny Unitas: Simply, the best Former Colts QB was the 'ultimate triggerman' 09/12/2002 If you wanted to build the perfect quarterback for your NFL team, you'd take the mind of Joe Montana, the body of John Elway, the rifle arm of Brett Favre, the feathery touch of Dan Marino and the swagger of Joe Namath. Or you could just hand the football to Johnny Unitas. The greatest quarterback ever to take an NFL snap died Wednesday of a heart attack. He was 69. More than 40 years ago, Unitas gave the NFL its definition for how the position should be...

    Indianapolis: Press on or back to "Sleepytown"? By Brian L Casserly Date: Jul 3, 2002 Recent gases from the bowels of a "scientific poll" sponsored jointly by the Indianapolis Star and local TV station WTHR have a majority of the "400" people questioned (in a metropolitan area comprising over 1 million people) up in arms over the idea of the City Government assisting to fund a new stadium for the Colts. My short and sweet remarks are as follows: Who cares? Build it anyway. For those keen to the long version I'll continue. As a competent American with a pulse...
