Lack of continuity and identity played a part in why the Colts never had anything longer than a two-game winning streak and were never above .500 at any point in the season. But there were four games prior to the Oakland game that summed up Indianapolis’ season and why its vacation starts after exit interviews on Jan. 2. It was those four losses that had owner Jim Irsay talking about how their record would be different if the ball had bounced their way.
Dontari Poe Authentic Jersey Week 1 vs. Detroit: Thirty-seven seconds. That¡¯s all the remained on the clock for the Colts to open the season with a victory. They just had to make sure Matthew Stafford couldn¡¯t lead Detroit¡¯s offense down the field to get into field goal range. Stafford only needed three plays — all passes — to go 50 yards to get into range for kicker Matt Prater to make the game-winning 43-yard field goal in Detroit’s 39-35 victory.

¡°I proved it several times I can set an edge,¡¯¡¯ Addison said. ¡°I¡¯m not a man that just comes in and pass rushes. But it¡¯s hard, man. In the NFL, if you¡¯ve got a job, you want to keep it.
¡°I¡¯m just glad I¡¯m on the inside, because when you¡¯re on the outside looking in, it¡¯s hard to get back in.¡¯¡¯
Addison, 29, is far from the outside. He¡¯s in position to be one of Carolina¡¯s top free-agent priorities, if not the top.
He¡¯s not in the financial class of 2015 Pro Bowl selection Kawann Short, who despite having a subpar season is primed to be one of the top paid defensive tackles in the NFL.
But the Panthers can use the franchise tag to retain Short and justify it. That¡¯s not an option for Addison, scheduled to be more of a mid-range free agent once the season ends.
Still, Addison has set himself up for a big pay raise with a team-high and career-high 8.5 sacks that ranks 18th in the NFL and seventh among ends.
