Tony Dungy’s son James died a few days before Christmas. The Indianapolis Colts and Buccaneers teams are mourning the beloved Dungy family’s loss and many attended the funeral proceedings. Both in Tampa and Indianapolis, Dungy is considered a great man, who treated his players as equals and encouraged them to be good role models through their actions. James was often seen attending practices his father coached and was sometimes even mistaken for a player because of his size. James was often called a gentle giant and many have expressed he will be sorely missed.
There is no word on when Dungy will return to coaching but he has gone public thanking everyone for their support and expressing his belief that his son is in a better place now.

We have secured the division. The Colts have earned the bye for the first week of the playoffs. We got home field advantage. The Indianapolis Colts could sleep through their next two games and still come out Super Bowl champs in the end. Hopefully we are going to do exactly that. We don’t need to risk any injuries so I think we should put in the second stringers and let them get some field time. There is no reason to stress out or tire our players now that we can’t go undefeated. We should have the first string rested, practiced, and ready for our first playoff match up.

One could say this Indianapolis Colts team is perfect. They have dominated every team they have played and although they make it look easy, it isn’t. Great players like Peyton Manning push themselves hard during the week’s practices preparing for and studying the team they will meet the following Sunday. The Colts got their third straight AFC South title in their victory over the Jacksonville Jaguars and are now headed to face the San Diego Chargers next Sunday. It will be a challenge but I am sure the Colts will remain undefeated all the way to the Super Bowl and no one can stop them.

The Indianapolis Colts met the Tennessee Titans on Sunday and extended their winning streak to 12 games. This victory was like so many others, a showcase of the unbelievable talent and precision of this Colts squad. Everyone contributed something to the game and as a team we made very few mistakes. Our defense managed to hold the Titan offense to a field goal and no touchdowns. Peyton Manning threw for three touchdowns and led this team well into their guaranteed playoff spot. Peyton is the backbone of this team and can always count on Edgerrin James to pick up a hundred yards and take the pressure off.
