With LaVon Brazill suspended for the season, the competition for the fifth spot on the Colts’ wide receiver depth chart will likely come down to Da’Rick Rogers and Griff Whalen, unless an undrafted rookie breaks out or they decide to keep six. (Quick aside: I always liked Brazill’s potential, but this is more disappointing than […]
From 1999 to 2006, Marvin Harrison had at least 80 catches, 1100 yards and 10 touchdowns in each season.
EIGHT STRAIGHT SEASONS.
Jerry Rice is the only other receiver in history with more than five such seasons, he also has eight, but over a span of 10 years. Harrison’s eight-year run is the most consistent stretch of elite production we’ve ever seen. Harrison also owns the most dominant four-year stretch of any wide receiver, having four straight seasons of 100 catches, 1400 yards and 11 touchdowns. He has more such seasons than any other receiver in history.
In the days following LaVon Brazill’s suspension announcement, the oh-so-predictable outbreak of outrage has come. Brazill, as is well known by now, was suspended for a year following yet another violation of the NFL’s substance-abuse policy. The third-year receiver out of Ohio University was also suspended last year for four games for marijuana use. While […]
Aided by playing in four more games, Coby Fleener doubled each of his statistics from his rookie season during his second year in the NFL. Fleener went from 26 catches to 52, 281 yards to 608 and two touchdowns to four.
Fleener also went from a +.04 Pro Football Focus grade during his rookie season to a +2.1 in 2013, and went from three drops in 29 attempts to one drop in 53 chances.
For the past 10 months, we’ve talked about the Colts and Pep Hamilton being “run-first.” Well, let me rephrase that. We’ve mocked the Colts and Pep Hamilton for being run-first. We’ve complained about every I-formation, loathed the presence of Stanley Havili and watched in despair as Trent Richardson made himself the laughing stock of fantasy […]

Stanley Havili was a lightning rod for criticism in his first year with the Colts, mostly because playing him meant keeping T.Y. Hilton – or, later in the year, someone like LaVon Brazill or Da’Rick Rogers – on the bench. It didn’t help when a pass bounced off Havili’s hands in the playoff game against […]

During the 2014 offseason, Colts Authority is making a concentrated effort to have a complex understanding of as many of the players on the roster as possible. It’s all a part of the Colts Authority Charting Project, an intentional effort to chart as many statistical and strategical details about the team as we can. In that […]
