    Stokley is now going to be talked about alot since he caught the 49th TD pass. He now has a QB that will throw him the ball and he is showing how good of a WR he can be. I think he will have an even bigger season next year. Trust me guys you will see alot of Peyton to Stokley in the playoffs also and i dont even think Reggie Wayne will cry about it this time.

    Stokely has been in on some big plays. He caught a crucial touchdown in the Super Bowl when he was with the Ravens. And now this special catch. Stokely is having a banner season. And he wasn't too shabby last year either.He tore his acl in college but has bounced back more than once in his career. A feel good story.Is he the best receiver in football.? No. But he is quick and fast and especially effective on turf. Colts have big offensive numbers. Three one thousand yard receivers, one thousand at RB and of course Manning. Playoffs should be interesting.

    I see the Colts winning easily on Sunday.Plummer can be
    a good qb at times but he is inconsistant.Manning will be
    ready to lead this team to the Super Bowl.Expect the Colts to pull out all the stops.I see Brandon Stokley
    having a huge game.He is rested as he didn't play last
    week.Also,Manning loves to throw the deep fade route
    to Stokley.I will predict the final at 35-24 Colts win.
    I also think Brandon will score twice.Any other picks?

    The Broncos have one of the best pass defenses in
    the league (sixth according to ESPN) so we'll see
    how well Manning and Stokley do against them. I
    hope they do great.

    It will be interesting to see if Stokley is the big play guy he was during the playoffs last year. That's when he opened a lot of eyes. Of course he had to do it again all regular season this year to finally gain some respect.

    I don't care if the Colts win 45-35 or 14-10 as long as they win. A win is all that matters, it doesn't have to be an offensive "shock and awe" display.

    Kenoy Kennedy of the Broncos is talking trash about the Indy receivers:

    my prediction is colts 34 bronoes 14. the broncoes front four can't rush the passer and there sencondary will not be able to keep up.

    Brandon Stokely has done everything Harrison has and more. Stokely has gained about the same amount of yards with less pass attempts thrown to him. Unfortunaley Harrison, not Stokely gets the multi multi million dollar salary increase. I am dam sick of this obvious racism. Thank God for this site, I'm glad I found it and began to realize the twisted, radical agenda of the NFL

    Look out for Stokley this week.When ever he comes off a
    average game,he almost always follows it up with a huge
    game!He also plays excellent in the cold weather.I see
    him going over 100 yards receiving and Peyton Manning
    having a good game.It won't be easy,but the Colts will
    win.My prediction is 35-31.

    Brandon has 5 catches for 42 yards at the half.He is
    really tough.Stokley got drilled on several plays and
    still hung on to the ball.On one play,he was speared
    helmet to helmet.What a great receiver.The game is at
    halftime with the Pats leading the Colts 6-3.Not your
    typical Colts game but they are playing in a blizzard
    and it's very cold.Go Indy!

    give props to vrabel and brushski they did a good job in pressureing manning. one player i like but didn't get to play much for the pats was dan klecko. joe klecko son. he would fit right in at outside linebacker.

    Klecko is to for outside linebacker. He is a nose tackle.
    However since he is small, the Pats play the fat black lineman before
    him. Klecko is strong and compact. With his low center of
    gravity, he can be a menace to offensive linemen.

    he could be replacing bruschi this year at inside middle linebacker. Or possible vrable could move inside and klecko could moveto outside. Either way i do see him playing alot next season.

    There's also Monty Beisel and Ted Johnson in the mix, also Matth Chatham and Larry Izzo. Belichick does like his white linebackers and o-lineman and Tom Brady at QB. Too bad white fullbacks and tight ends are verboten, not to mention wide receivers and running backs and d-linemen and d-backs. Edited by: Don Wassall

    The latest issue of ESPN The Magazine has this to say about Brandon: "Forget slim, chances of repeating '04 stats are none."


    Their prognosis for Drew Bennett isn't much better: "Fewer touches as Tyrone Calico and Ben Troupe rise."

    What a complete outrage!I guess they will never give
    respect to any white receiver.The good thing is that I
    don't think that Stokley or Bennett give a damn about
    what ESPN says!Ha.ha.Let me put it this way,if I had a
    Fantasy Team,they would be starting.Bennett is a number
    one receiver.ESPN is so pathetic sometimes.

    The ESPN article reveals what the writers HOPE will happen, not what possibly could happen.

    Bad news for the Colts & Stokley.He dislocated his
    shoulder & will miss two to three weeks.Here is to a
    speedy recovery in time for the regular season!

    Looks like Brandon is healing very fast. He expects to play in the Colts season opener Sunday night. Here's the latest report:

    Colt WR Brandon Stokley (shoulder) went through the team's light workout Monday evening and expects to be on the field Wednesday afternoon when preparation for the Ravens intensifies, the Indianapolis Star reports. "It pretty much comes down to what the coaches think is best for the team," he said. "If they think I'm able to play, I'll play . . . I feel pretty good." While Stokley is practicing, the team lost WR Troy Walters for at least a few days; his contract was terminated to make room for linebacker Keith O'Neil. The Colts hope to re-sign Walters, perhaps as soon as Wednesday, unless injuries force the team to address other positions.

    A good night for Stokley in his first game of the season.He missed the whole pre season with a shoulder injury.Tonight he led the team in receiving with 7 catches for 83 yards.He didn't look rusty at all.It should be another huge year for Brandon.Hopefully he can have back to back 1000 yard seasons as the 3rd receiver!

    I thought Brandon played a great game tonight. He had been out the entire preseason with a shoulder injury and wasn't even expected to play in this game until just a few days ago, and still he stepped up big time. He looks very confident, like the star he is.
