The Indianapolis Colts will be rolling back the NFL clock Sunday. Not only is Denver Broncos quarterback Peyton Manning returning to face his former team for the first time, but longtime teammates Marvin Harrison and Edgerrin James will be there at Lucas Oil Stadium to welcome him back, a celebratory reunion of the Big Three. “It's going to be really exciting,” Colts owner Jim Irsay told The Times. “Edgerrin and Marvin are coming in, they're fired up to come back in. Talked to those guys and it's going to be exciting to have those guys come in. We were such a close-knit group, those teams that were in the late '90s through the whole decade.” James, a first-round pick in 1999, won the NFL rushing title in each of his first two seasons, and left Indianapolis in 2006 as the Colts' all-time leading rusher with 9,226 yards.

'I really didn't think he would make it, not that he didn't deserve it. But it's a tough perception to overcome -- that your No. 2 receiver is better than 28 other receivers in the league.' Tony Dungy, Indianapolis Colts coach, after Reggie Wayne joined Marvin Harrison on the AFC Pro Bowl roster

Peyton Manning is known for being one the NFL's foremost technicians, a player who is constantly refining and tinkering with his game. As a result, the new Denver Broncos quarterback is the league's only four-time most valuable player. In a conference call with the media Wednesday, NBC's Tony Dungy, formerly coach of the Manning-led Colts, gave an interesting example of Peyton's dedication to improving and helping the players around him improve. "We drafted Anthony Gonzalez in Indianapolis, and Peyton Manning went twice a week to Columbus and threw with him for an hour-and-a-half while he was still in school," Dungy said of the Ohio State receiver selected with the 32nd pick of the 2007 draft.

Calvin Johnson has lived up to his larger-than-life nickname on the field. Now he's being rewarded with the biggest contract in NFL history. The wide receiver known as Megatron has signed a new eight-year contract worth $132 million, including $60 million guaranteed, to remain with the Detroit Lions through the 2019 season. The former No. 2 overall draft pick was entering the final year of the six-year deal he signed with Detroit as a rookie in 2007. Under the former deal, Johnson's contract would have cost the team more than $20 million against their salary cap. "They were happy to get this thing done with, and I was happy as well,” Johnson said.

His toughness and leadership no longer questioned after he played so well late last season despite a severely broken finger, Drew Bledsoe of the New England Patriots is now the subject of most-valuable-player talk. New York Jet Coach Bill Parcells, formerly Bledsoe's boss in New England, bristled when asked about the "much maligned" quarterback, whose passer rating is tops in the AFC.

Marvin Harrison has torn apart good defenses all season. Sunday was no different. The NFL's leading receiver caught two late touchdown passes and topped the 100-yard mark for the sixth time this season as the Colts held off the Dallas Cowboys, 20-3. Harrison caught 14 passes for 138 yards, becoming the first player in the league to top 1,000 yards receiving this season, and reaching 600 receptions faster than any player in NFL history. "They double-team him, they try to put guys up to him.

It's an odd and curious universe the three best pass catchers in football have created for themselves. Two of them -- Terrell Owens, who can't get enough attention, and Randy Moss, who just wants you to get out of his face -- live in their own little worlds. The third, Marvin Harrison, is as reliable as the setting sun, the difference between night and day for the Indianapolis Colts, even if he's taken for granted on a daily basis.

The New England Patriots downgraded safety Rodney Harrison from doubtful to out Saturday for the AFC championship game against Indianapolis. Harrison will sit out today's game at Indianapolis after straining his right knee in the last regular-season game, a 40-23 win over Tennessee, when he was blocked by receiver Bobby Wade. The injury sidelined Harrison for playoff wins over the New York Jets and San Diego Chargers.

Anthony Gonzalez may be out longer than the Indianapolis Colts first feared, and they have a replacement for him. Coach Jim Caldwell said the third-year receiver could miss up to two months after spraining ligaments in his right knee during Sunday's 14-12 victory over Jacksonville. Indianapolis has signed former Philadelphia receiver Hank Baskett to take Gonzalez's place, and three-time league most valuable player Peyton Manning hopes he can find his way around the offense fast.

Indianapolis Colts Coach Tony Dungy said he expected wide receiver Marvin Harrison to play Sunday against the New England Patriots. Harrison, the franchise's career receiving leader, has sat out two of the last three games because of a bruised left knee. He didn't practice Wednesday but was expected to practice today, according to Dungy. "I think he'll play [Sunday], but we'll have to see how it goes." Dungy said.

Four reasons why Marvin Harrison is the least-hyped superstar in pro sports: * He never whines about getting the damn ball. Ever. * He plays in a city that for all practical purposes lies in the middle of a cornfield. * He would no sooner sneak a Sharpie into his sock to sign a football after a touchdown than walk naked through downtown Indianapolis. In a blizzard. * He never takes off plays during a game because he doesn't feel like running hard. Are you insane?
