Jim Irsay, Er, The Colts Want All of Your Old Pills

Jim Adair - August 6, 2015

Last year, Colts owner Jim Irsay was arrested with “numerous” bottles of prescription pills and a bunch of cash on him. Today, the Colts announced that they’ll take all of your old pills, if you don’t mind.

In a tweet sent out today, the Colts encouraged fans to bring their unused and expired prescriptions for “disposal” at camp, and in return you can get a DVD. As the Colts’ website says:

Community Take Back Day presented by the Indiana Prescription Drug Abuse Task Force – Sunday, August 9: The Colts are teaming up with the Office of the Indiana Attorney General for a prescription drug take back event at Training Camp. Fans that bring unused or expired Rx prescriptions for safe disposal on August 9th will be given a complimentary copy of the 2014 Colts highlight DVD titled “Knocking on the Door.”

And as one person on Twitter said:

Seriously though, don’t NARC. Irsay just wants to help the community.

FiveThirtyEight Reminds You that the Eagles Aren’t Out of it Yet

But it doesn’t look good: We all know this weekend’s Eagles game is a must-win, because losing would put a nail in the coffin of their season and also be super embarrassing. But the Dallas/Indianapolis matchup is just as important (maybe more so) in determining the Eagles’ immediate fate. FiveThirtyEight, as always, has done the math on this.

If the Eagles win, Dallas’ chances to make the playoffs drop only down to 77.8%, while the Eagles’ chances leap up to 48.9% — actually not too shabby. But the biggest break the Eagles could get (obviously) would be for Dallas to lose to the Colts. With a Dallas loss, the Eagles’ playoff chances go from 39.5% to 57.8%. With a Cowboys win, they drop to 23.5%. And if Dallas beats the Colts or the Eagles lose to the Redskins, the Cowboys’ playoff chances hop up to an almost identical percentage in the 93% range.

And finally, in totally (hopefully) unrealistic odds, if the Redskins beat the Eagles, the Birds’ playoff chances dip down to 7.8%, which might as well be a five-win season for some.

Video: Hit on Austin Collie

Austin Collie gets knocked out.  The Eagles were given a penalty on the play, which eventually led to a Colts touchdown.

Jim Nantz relayed to viewers that Collie was sitting up and alert at halftime- a great sign.

Here's why it was a bad call and the league mandate is getting out of control: Watch the full speed replay around the :35 second mark.  There is no way Kurt Coleman could have slowed himself down to avoid hitting Collie.  Hits like this are, and always will be, part of the game.  The ensuing penalty cost the Eagles.

My biggest problem with the play?  The reaction of Asante Samuel upon seeing the replay.  His yelling and carrying on almost led him right into the trainers tending to Collie.  In a situation where the guy could've had a broken neck, Samuel has to show just a little bit of restraint.

More soon.  Video of the hit after the jump.

UniDiction: Week 9 – Eagles vs. Colts (Throwbacks!)

Dan Fuller - November 7, 2010

Slide1

Ok.  So, 6-2 doesn't have the same ring as 7-1, but with a system this arbitrary, that's still pretty good, right?  Right?

Two really big uniform stories this week.  1) The Eagles will actually be wearing their "official" home uniform today for the first time this season. 2) The Colts will be wearing their 1955 throwbacks which are making their first regular season appearance.

And, oh yeah, it's no longer October, so the ridiculous pink breast cancer "awareness" gear will be gone- the NFL profits off the sale of that gear, yo.

UniDiction after the jump.
