I just came into town on the back of a turnip truck, so I need an explanation.
Are these gold teeth real, permanent teeth or caps that snap onto the teeth? Are these the kind IPS wants to ban? Thanks for your help, folks.

I agree with you Jeremy. Finally winning the Super Bowl last year was sooooo sweet but for me as a long time fan it would have been even sweeter if Edge had still been there. I know Peyton gets all the credit and rightfuly so but when Edge came on board in 99 that is when the team became legit. I like Addai but I definately miss Edge.

I was a contractor for the Colts a few years ago when Mora was here. I had interaction with the Colts on a regular basis. Edge was by far the nicest, friendliest and most down-to-earth player on the Colts at that time. He was never to good to speak and ask how I was doing and how the business was going. I wish him nothing but the best.

I hope this coming season is all you expect it to be Edge. I will tell you right now though, unless those gold teeth can block a 300 pound lineman, its going to be another year of 60 yard performances. The Colts have had one of the top 3 offensive lines in the league the 5+ years. You got a big wake up call when you hit Arizona. I give you credit for not blasting that group too much publicly.

I would say its about time for Zona to make the playoffs. They have as much talent as the Colts, its just not as cohesive or as proven.

Ten wins would probably get you the divisional title if you can just beat the guys in your division. That would be a huge first step. And lets be honest....no NFC team is going to win the Super Bowl anytime in the next few years. The Boys and Bears would be about the 5&6 best AFC team.

EJ is the man, just think if we selected Ricky Williams instead. Football and all sports are a business. Edge gave us several real good years, Best of Luck.

Edge was a great character, both in the locker room, off the field, on the field, and definitely always up for a fun media quote. I sure miss him and it's refreshing to see such a good-natured, high-profile athlete these days.

All the best to you Edge.

I like Edge. He is one of the best running backs in the NFL and will do fine, even with an average offensive line backing him.

My only beef with him is that he has fumbled the ball at critical times, like on the NE 1 yard line, for instance. He didn't fumble very much, I give him credit for that. But He seemed to fumble at the wrong time in the playoffs.

But he was fantastic. I think there are a lot of great running backs. That's why the Colts didn't need to re-sign him. We don't need an LJ or LT, with our offense.

Heck, we could put my nine year old son in there and he'll have a 5 yard run (before he gets squashed like a bug).
