I'm in Santa Monica all this week for reasons that have nothing to do with football. I'll posts some pics when I get them. That way, WCB and InBradyWeTrust can be jealous of me seeing me soak up the sun and fun in SoCal. Onto more Colts news!
CBS Sportsline's Clark Judge wrote an outstanding recap of the free agency period thus far. He cited Carolina and Cleveland as the big winners in free agency, and New England as the big loser. His comments about the Patriots are very similar to what's been written about here:
Also, according to Judge, the biggest free agent acquisition of the offseason thus far was (drumroll please) Adam Vinatieri.
The last part of Judge's article is really the best. He compares Edgerrin James leaving Indy to Ricky Watters leaving San Francisco after they won the S to sign with the Eagles for a huge free agent contract. It's an interesting but flawed comparison. One similarity is both backs left winning clubs for one reason: money.
He wasn't. But he could've been had he stayed in San Francisco. He was perfectly suited to what the 49ers were doing on offense, and he would've had four more years with Steve Young, Jerry Rice and the playoffs.
Edgerrin James was a perfect fit for Indianapolis, too. He was on a Hall of Fame track. Now, I don't know.
Check out the rest of Judge's article. It's worth a read.
