I find it amazing how well the kickers and punters do in the twitter-sphere. Especially, ones who get arrested for swiming drunkingly down the Broad Ripple canal with little to no attire. Boom Stick is right.

There is, without a doubt, one NFL owner who stands above all the rest when it comes to twitter. And that, of course, is the Colts' Jim Irsay. His random torts, rants and general goofiness is well worth the follow: @JimIrsay

The No. 1 overall pick and savior of the Colts franchise hasn't joined the twitter-lution just yet. However, you can follow his head (@AndrewLucksHead) and his MVP campaign (@Luck4MVP).
