Andrew Luck makes strong statement in debut for Indianapolis Colts

The Indianapolis Colts’ 2012 preseason opener, unlike such games in years past, was significant. It would offer the fan base its first look at the Colts under GM Ryan Grigson, coach Chuck Pagano and, most importantly, new franchise quarterback Andrew Luck.

St. Louis Rams owner Stan Kroenke and his attempt to purchase the Los Angeles Dodgers came up yesterday at the NFL owners meeting in Palm Beach. If Kroenke beats out the other two remaining bidders for the MLB franchise, the Stl. Rams could become the L.A. Rams once again.
