It was a Jekyll and Hyde performance from the Colts.

Fast-forward. The team finally has a superstar, arguably its first. The franchise demanded that Cam Newton become a star. He was a Heisman winner who wasn’t Chris Weinke, a proven champion who was supposed to finally bring consistency to a woefully unreliable team.

Newton arrived in the NFL with an expectation things would come naturally and was humbled 19 times as the Panthers had back-to-back losing seasons. The young quarterback came under fire for his demeanor, his attitude and his towel.

Osmosis was supposed to pull success from Newton into the Panthers, but playing for this team leached it from him instead. Slowly, the ultra-competitive quarterback began to become complacent, the player that seethed and abhorred losing fell into the well-worn treadmill of stock statements and media placation. Carolina was once again soulless, and it felt like there was no lack of urgency starting with head coach Ron Rivera.

Morris carried the ball just nine times in the second half, erasing Washington’s good first half tendencies and reverting to bad habits. Unable to control the clock the team faltered, while the Vikings had less success on the ground, but they better understood that making Adrian Peterson the focal point would give them success.

It was a Jekyll and Hyde performance from the Colts. The team’s defense allowed two rushing touchdowns from Chris Johnson in the first quarter while struggling on offense. Protection wasn’t there for Luck, and he was routinely pressured, which killed the deep passing game. Trent Richardson wasn’t able to run, receivers weren’t getting open and even turning to trick plays was ineffective.

Chris Johnson posts his gunshot wound on Instagram and NOPE

Chris Johnson will reportedly be a member of the Arizona Cardinals if everything goes well. It appears he wants to be as honest and transparent as possible before signing with a team. He may be disclosing more information than he should in his latest Instagram post, however.

Earlier this year, Johnson was shot in the shoulder in a drive-by shooting. He’s fine now, but he still has a nasty wound that he felt like sharing.

This is a substantial blow to the Cardinals’ offensive line, as the club hoped to pair Iupati with tackle Jared Veldheer on the left side. In San Francisco, Iupati played alongside one of the best left tackles in the game, Joe Staley.

Arizona had one of the worst offensive lines in football last season, and the unit has already taken a couple of hits so far in training camp. Right tackle Bobby Massie was suspended for three games earlier this month for violating the league’s substance abuse policy.

Though Iupati had a bit of a down season in 2014 — he often struggled in pass coverage — the Cardinals were expecting him to play an integral role this year.

Arizona was decimated by injuries in 2014, and losing its starting left guard for at least the first six weeks of the regular season was almost certainly not how head coach Bruce Arians envisioned starting the preseason.
