Preseason Wrap-Up: Colts Win the All-Important Third Game 24-14

Disclaimer: As a professional football writer (I have the membership card to prove it) I’m contractually obligated to treat preseason football as if it mattered. In reality, the only questions that matter in the preseason are as follows: 1. Did anyone die or worse, blow an ACL? 2. No, seriously. Who needs surgery as a […]

Things I’m Watching For in the Colts’ Third Preseason Game

It’s the Colts’ third preseason game tonight, which, if you ask Gregg Doyel, is the Super Bowl of preseason games.

The Cloth

“Every time I call it a game, you call it a business. And every time I call it a business, you call it a game.” Those words were uttered by John Matuszak in the 1979 movie “North Dallas Forty.” For those who haven’t seen it, the movie is loosely based on the Dallas Cowboys of […]

Anderson and Parry: The Future of the Colts’ Defensive Line?

Writer’s note: If you don’t care about the writer’s personal life and future plans, please skip this next paragraph. Or, if you must, go leave a mean comment about it on Reddit or something.

Observations From Preseason Week 1, Colts 10, Eagles…36

The Indianapolis Colts opened up the preseason in Philadelphia, in front of as many as 40 fans (okay, it wasn’t that sparse).  It looked like most Colts preseason games, in that it was pretty much a sloppy bloodbath of a loss.  The coaches are evaluating more than preparing for games this time of year (in […]

Breaking Down T.Y. Hilton’s $65 Million Contract Extension

The Colts made waves on Thursday morning when they announced a deal with T.Y. Hilton for a five-year, $65 million extension.

Three Storylines to Watch as Training Camp Rolls on

Breaking Down the Financial Impact of Gosder Cherilus’ Release

In a relatively unexpected move, the Colts cut right tackle Gosder Cherilus this afternoon, another reminder of how poorly the 2013 offseason went for Indianapolis. Ryan Grigson has had some very underrated moves during his tenure as general manager, but the 2013 offseason (draft, free agency, T-Rich) is not a period to look back upon […]

Colts release Gosder Cherilus

Right Tackle Gosder Cherilus’s time the Colts is over after two seasons and at least $12.3 million.  There goes one more from that 2013 free agent class, a group that featured the hard-running but oft-injured Ahmad Bradshaw and Matt Hasselbeck (the 2nd best QB in the AFC South), but also such luminaries as LaRon “Battleship” Landry (I […]

Personal Updates, Sorry for the Silence

It’s been quiet here on CA lately, largely because I’ve been absent from writing and tweeting outside of my Bleacher Report responsibilities (I’m paid for that, sue me).
