Virtually anonymous in the middle of all this is DB Ron Parker, who at Division II Newberry College was known as "The Ghost" because of a knack for making plays by appearing out of nowhere.
He could hold the same handle here because he's so overshadowed.
"Kind of a guy who goes below the radar," defensive coordinator Bob Sutton said, in the same breath as he called Parker "one of my favorite guys. He's the ultimate team guy."
"He was the most experienced guy for us, having played in games the year before," Chiefs defensive coordinator Bob Sutton said. "I thought he did a really good job for his first game this season. He was very active.
"Good job with communication. No major busts, which sometimes happen when you haven't played in a while. He has a ways to go, but for a first time out, a pretty good showing."
"I had a great opportunity to coach a lot of great people there, including Artis Hicks, at the Minnesota Vikings," Childress said. "I have too much respect for the Wilf family, professional football to have anything to do with a bounty system. So let it stand at that."
“This is a football team that started the season 1-5 last year and ripped off 10 straight and made it to the playoffs and went down and beat a good Houston team,” Pagano pointed out on Wednesday. “They are 4-2 this year, two game win streak, so they are 14-2 in their last 16 regular season games. I have great respect for Andy Reid and their coaching staff and how they run their program. He is a great, great coach. All three phases are well-coached and they are a balanced football team and they pose a lot of problems in all areas and we are going to have to be on point and play near flawless football in order to have a chance in this ball game.”
“I take a little bit of umbrage,’’ Luck said. “I don’t think I’ve had 17 comeback victories. I’ve been a part of a team that’s been behind. “Yeah, it was fun to come back and win in that fashion, at home. I think it was the first victory for a lot of guys on the Colts. I think it was mine. A lot of fun. But that was then and this is now. It’s a much different setting, much different year.’’
Some tough news hit the tech world Thursday morning. Vine, the social media platform famous for the posting of up to six-second videos, will close down in the coming months. With Vine going away, here are the top 10 Vine videos in Kansas City Chiefs history:
On Saturday at 2 p.m., a Haughton park designed to honor Delaney will open to the public. The park, which has been in the works since he died, opens after a push two years ago to get the project completed.
Indy punter Pat McAfee calls it the moment Colts players understood they would never be out of a game when Luck was in uniform. Coach Chuck Pagano called it the best of the 17 comeback wins on Luck's resume, including three this season.
