The Colts in London from a Londoner’s Perspective

Editor’s note: We would like to thank Ben for contributing once again to Colts Authority and giving us his unique take on the game at Wembley Stadium. Be sure to look for his special review of the Colts game in London in the coming week.  – MD As a relative new convert to following American […]

Colts Authority Notebook: London Calling

It is a classic divisional clash with a bit of a European (oh wait, not any more) twist, as the Colts take on the 0-3 Jaguars. With a win the Colts could climb back to .500 and gain some traction within their division as they continue they slog their way along as playoff hopefuls. Sunday’s […]

God save the quee…..i mean God save our Colts. This week, the Colts are traveling across the pond to play their good buddies from Jacksonville in a nice game of American football. Normally, the London game spells bad news for the coach of the losing team, as 3 of the past 4 times games were […]

Week 4 Mailbag

Hello Colts fans. It’s London time. The time where, after three straight late afternoon games for a team who plays in the Midwest, the NFL slaps us in the face with an early morning game overseas that 99% of us hate. In the spirit of London time, the NFL can sod off with this bloody […]

Colts Authority Notebook: J.A.G.S. – Just Another Game. Sorta.

Wednesday was Coordinator Day at the Colts complex as Rob Chudzinski and Ted Monachino faced the media to discuss this week’s opponent and how they can build on positive aspects of last week’s game. Something you won’t read below but his worth reading now: Two of the players interviewed today were Pat McAfee and Adam […]

Colts Authority Notebook: The London Plan

The Indianapolis Colts are heading into the biggest game of their season. Not because it’s the next game (as Chuck loves to say), but because it’s against (one of) the worst team(s) in the league who is teetering on firing another coach. It’s the Win Or Start Over Bowl. Congrats, London. This may be your […]

Good News Tuesday: Kicking and Screaming

After that victory, thought I, the rest of Colts Authority should be able to cover all good news for the week. The Colts have their first win, T.Y. Hilton looking like an elite receiver again, Jack Doyle and Dwayne Allen are staying involved, the pass rush is getting through. *whisper whisper* … oh. Turns out […]

Eyes in the Backfield: Colts 26 Chargers 22

12 Things We Saw in Sunday’s Indianapolis-San Diego Game The last two weeks, the Colts have played down to the wire, only to have said wire decapitate them in the final minute of the game. (If you think that’s a gruesome image you should have heard the WW II vet I stole it from tell […]

COLTS vs. CHARGERS: the Return of T. Y. Hilton

Pre-game:   In week one, Detroit looked fantastic against the Colts. They proceeded to lose to Tennessee at home and just got more-or-less obliterated by Green Bay. Denver squeaked out a win against Carolina but then rolled over Indy; they went on to play a close game against Cincy today, only pulling away at the end. […]

CA Injury Report Breakdown Week 3

How many healthy bodies will the Colts be able to put on the field against the Chargers this Sunday? Let’s take a look at this week’s injury report. OUT: CB Darius Butler (hamstring)- Butler sustained a grade one hamstring strain during last week’s loss to Denver. The recovery time for grade one strains is generally […]

Colts Notebook: Injured, Winless, and Excuseless

Arguably no team understands the woes and tribulations that the Indianapolis Colts have faced as much as the team that they will be squaring off against on Sunday: the San Diego Chargers. The Chargers have lost their two leading pass-catchers from 2015 in Keenan Allen and Danny Woodhead who combined for nearly 150 receptions last season. While […]

Why The Colts Will Score More Than The Other Guys – Chargers Edition

Hello, Colts fans. The key to football is to score more points than the other guys. I know this and you know this, but our friends in the media need something to talk about in order to justify their jobs. Earlier this summer, a certain baseball announcer acknowledged to me that yes, I was right, the […]

Colts Authority Notebook: Three Headed Monster

This Sunday the Colts are facing off against the San Diego Chargers. After dropping the first two games of the season, obviously the Colts are in a tough spot. A 0-3 start would make it nigh on impossible to make a playoff run. The Chargers sit at 1-1 and have proven to be a tough […]

Week 3 Mailbag

Hello, Colts fans. Week 2 is in the books, and once more the Colts experienced “coulda, woulda, shoulda” in another loss. With a third straight 0-2 start, the frustration levels are high. Higher than a space shuttle high. I’m right there with you all. I’m so right there with you I can’t even think of […]

The Good News Ledge Talk 2016

Indianapolis has, for the third straight season, started 0-2 against one probably-bad team and one probably-good team. Which year seems most similar to this one? Last year they scored 14 and 7 points against the Bills and Jets respectively, both out-of-division games, neither rivals. Indianapolis was not competitive in either match and Luck looked terrible. Indy went […]

Colts Authority Notebook: Denver’s Defense Dominates

The Colts have started out slow again this season with another loss to fall to 0-2 for the third straight season. The Colts have only won one season opener under Chuck Pagano and that was against a terrible Oakland Raiders team who was quarterbacked by a guy who now plays wide receiver for the Cleveland Browns, […]

If You’re Not Angry, Then You Haven’t Been Paying Attention

For the third consecutive year the Colts begin the season stumbling out to an 0-2 record. That is unacceptable. In most any other organization, with the exception of Cincinnati, the coach’s seat wouldn’t be hot, it would be on fire. There are those who will say I’m overreacting. There are those who will point out that […]

Andrew Luck Mortal as Colts Drop to 0-2. Again.

Pregame: Question of the day: Can the Colts harness the offensive dominance they showed in the second half of last week into a full game of effective play this week? Other question of the day: Can the defense not embarrass themselves against a young quarterback? Clayton Geathers is set to start after missing the entire […]

Not So Fast

  Colts look to bounce back against one of the best defenses in the NFL. After winning three of the last four meetings between these teams the main difference has been Andrew Luck. After a gritty performance last year in a game which ended up being Luck’s last of the season, he willed the Colts […]

Colts Roundtable: Applied Paganoisms 101

Well, I don’t know if you’ve noticed, but I sure have. I just don’t have the spare time to write these posts at the rate I once did. Here we are, though, with a roundtable that was due out a day or two ago, and I’m delighted with everyone’s contributions. The Roundtable is exactly what […]
