Wondering whether or not to start Aaron Rodgers and Rob Gronkowski, or to bench Ryan Tannehill and Kenny Britt? The network bozos specialize in that kind of advice. If you're looking for help with your real starting lineup conundrums, read on. Here are my picks to roll, and get rolled, in Week 1 of the 2012 season.   Watch 'em roll Matt Ryan, QB, Falcons at Chiefs. He and his elite receivers were locked-in all preseason.

I HAD ALWAYS wanted to go where no man had gone before, yet I also had a debilitating fear of heights. So earlier this summer, I decided that I would watch every first-team snap of every preseason football game. As I wait for Mayor Nutter to schedule the parade, here is what I learned: 1 Take the Colts over the conventional wisdom. Since 2002, 23 teams started a rookie quarterback in the majority of their games. Seven of those teams finished with a winning record. Six of those teams finished the previous season with a losing record.

BETHLEHEM, Pa. - The Eagles traded linebackers Moise Fokou and Greg Lloyd to the Colts for cornerback Kevin Thomas and a 2013 conditional seventh-round draft pick. Thomas was drafted in the third round in 2010 by Indianapolis. He missed all of 2010 with a knee injury. He started five of nine games he played for the Colts last season, recording 33 tackles and defending three passes. There were reports out of Indianapolis during the spring that the 6-foot, 192-pound Thomas could challenge for a starting spot in 2012.

BETHLEHEM - The Eagles didn't really need another corner, Howie Roseman acknowledged Thursday when asked how he came to trade for Kevin Thomas from Indianapolis. But Roseman liked Thomas coming out of USC in 2010, before the Colts drafted him in the third round, and corner is one of those positions where you always look for more real players. And maybe most important, former Eagles personnel chief Ryan Grigson is the GM in Indianapolis now, and Grigson needed linebackers. Roseman had a couple of those, former seventh-round draft picks Moise Fokou (2009)

The Indianapolis Colts on Thursday signed Stanford quarterback and No. 1 overall pick in the draft Andrew Luck to a four-year, $22.1 million deal. "12 is officially signed!!!!!!" Colts owner Jim Irsay tweeted, adding a photo of Luck signing his contract for good measure. Luck's agent and uncle, Will Wilson , confirmed the deal had been completed. The deal is similar to the one signed by Cam Newton a year ago and the one signed this week by Robert Griffin III . Newton, last year's top pick, has a four-year, $22 million deal with Carolina and Griffin, who went No. 2 behind Luck in April's draft, signed a four-year contract with the Washington Redskins worth $21.1 million guaranteed, with a club option for a fifth year.

After a 51/2-week absence from Indianapolis' offseason workouts, the NFL's No. 1 overall draft pick showed up in a red No. 12 jersey on Tuesday and started showing everyone what he'd learned in his final classes at Stanford. "I'm just trying to soak everything in, and I'm starting to have a good understanding of what's going on here," Andrew Luck said after a one-hour workout. League rules prohibit rookies from attending team mini-camps until they finish classes, with the exception of one three-day rookie camp, which ended May 6. So dozens of reporters, photographers, and television cameras monitored each pass Luck threw.

COLT ANDERSON isn't part of the Eagles' OTAs. Anderson is running and cutting on his own most days, usually just yards away from the main workout, virtually unnoticed.   Bobby April notices him, though. The Birds' special-teams coordinator knows Anderson, nominally a safety, was the main reason the Eagles ranked third in punt-return yardage surrendered and 13th in kickoff-return yardage surrendered last season. Anderson was voted team special-teams MVP by his teammates, after he finished second in special-teams production points and tackles despite missing the final four games after tearing his left ACL Dec. 1 at Seattle.

ELKTON, Md. - About 10 a.m. Sunday, a horse van carrying Kentucky Derby and Preakness winner I'll Have Another north on I-95 to Belmont Park passed about 10 miles east of the Fair Hill (Md.) Training Center. The horse that will be going for the Triple Crown on June 9 in the Belmont Stakes was on his way to get familiar with the surface they call "Big Sandy. " Meanwhile, the horse whose trainer thought he might be going for the Triple Crown was in his Fair Hill stall. Union Rags is quietly getting ready, away from the madness that is sure to envelop I'll Have Another and his connections in the coming days.

  NEW YORK - The overnight wait paid off for Stanford tight end Coby Fleener. He's reuniting with his college quarterback, a guy named Andrew Luck. Fleener wasn't chosen in the first round of the NFL draft, in which Luck was No. 1. Fleener got a nice consolation prize on Friday night when the Indianapolis Colts grabbed him with the second pick of the second round. Chances are good Fleener will become a starter - and a main target - for Luck. "I just sent him a text message that had a lot of exclamation points in it," said Fleener, who had 10 touchdown catches last season and 18 for his career in Stanford's prodigious offense.
