Colts will lean heavily on James
Ricky Williams going head-to-head with Edgerrin James is the most interesting subplot of weekend's most interesting game.
There is the obvious tie that binds them. The Colts surprised everyone and selected James ahead of Williams, who was taken just one spot later. And then there is the way their careers have flip-flopped. At first, James was the immediate star and led the league in rushing while Williams dealt with nagging injuries. Now, Williams is the defending rushing champion and James can't seem to keep himself on the field.
