07:55 AM ET 11.05 | A feel-good win that included both an Andrew Luck record and an appearance from Chuck Pagano on Sunday gives Indianapolis a good deal of momentum, but the team faces one significant change in the offseason. [We] hear the pressure is increasing on OLB Dwight Freeney, who, in a contract year, has been a complete nonfactor as he transitions to a new position. In his defense, Freeney suffered a high ankle sprain early in Week One and missed the next two games. However, we hear Freeney has come to his own defense too often, repeatedly referencing his injured ankle when asked about his lack of production. We hear it would be a major surprise if Freeney is back with the Colts next season.

FYI, he's 32.

Get him back in a 4-3 scheme and I'm thinking there's still plenty of tread on the tires

A toast to your team, Mr. Steeler. When we pick up a half-game on Buffalo and Miami without lifting a finger, and then the hated Blue Meanies lose, well, it's a good Sunday indeed.

Funny my sister was all happy about the Steelers after that game, not quite so much when her Cowpies couldn't get it done against the Falcons. I must say I really enjoyed that 4th quarter, it was like watching the great team of the 70's again, real smashmouth Steeler football

The guy still plays at a Pro bowl level . Yesterday he completely dominated a younger pro bowl tackle in Jake Long .

Having seen far too much of it, I expected someone to get behind the defense and then see Eli make that one good pass at just the right time. But, the Pittsburgh D controlled the game in the 4th quarter.

He'll probably end up being a Jet.

Now that's a horrible thing to wish on anyone.
