Track & Field News
Top TimesFormer Colts running back Dominic Rhodes rips Raiders quarterback JaMarcus Russell
Dominic Rhodes is one of my all-time favorite players. He's a symbol of what makes the NFL so great. No, I'm not kidding. He is.

The dude went undrafted out of Midwestern State (where?) in 2001. The Colts signed him as a collegiate free agent, and after just one training camp, he cemented himself as Edgerrin James' back-up and as the kick returner. When Edge suffered a career-altering knee injury against the Kansas City Chiefs in October 2001, Dom Rhodes went from undrafted nobody to starting tailback for a franchise on the rise.

His career in Indy peaked when he rushed for 113 yards and a TD in Super Bowl 41. He was a legit MVP candidate in that game.

Dom's career has been built on hard work, guts, and a willingness to do anything for the team. I think he's a "Colts Ring of Honor" type guy. If Jimmy Harbaugh is up there, Dom Rhodes should be up there.

So, when someone like Dom Rhodes starts taking shots at a player like JaMarcus Russell, people like me stand up and listen because you have to be a douchebag of epic proportions to get someone like Dom attacking your character.
