TERRE HAUTE, Ind. -- Here are five observations on the Indianapolis Colts, based on July 28 practices:
1. Edgerrin James' personality prevents any statement or complaints he might make from being a distraction. Take the recent comment where he said he didn't want to fly to Japan as an example. Players know James hates to fly. Japan is a long trip. Colts players got a kick out of it being a mini-controversy. On a team structured around no-nonsense work, James is fun for his teammates because he's loose and unpredictable.
