Silver Linings in Colts Late Season Slide

Since the Indianapolis Colts lost future Hall of Fame wide receiver Reggie Wayne to a torn ACL, nothing has come easy. The offense has struggled to find a stride and a new identity. The defense has had to shoulder a much greater level of pressure as offenses have become more aggressive, unafraid of a limping […]

Examining the Colts Mid-Season Struggles

Over the last two weeks, the Indianapolis Colts have struggled as a football team. Sure, coming back in the second half again a decimated Texans squad was inspiring and fun to watch, but being in that position at all was entirely unnecessary. In the last four halves of football, Indianapolis has looked like a team […]

In Football, the Best Team Identity is a Flexible One

Much has been said about the Colts frustrating performance against the San Diego Chargers. There were many reasons the Colts lost. Dropped passes, poor decision-making, a failure to get the Chargers offense off of the field, the list could go on. The best way I've been able to describe my opinion of the game is […]

Colts Building a Dynamic Running Attack

There has been no more disappointing area for the Colts offense over the past six years than its inability to rush the football. For some time the ground game was defended as efficient in short-yardage and as a “change of pace” from the Peyton Manning-led passing attack, dismissing its effectiveness as a true offensive weapon […]

2012 Indianapolis Colts still coming together

A theme Indianapolis Colts fans have unfortunately become very familiar with over the last six years is missed games to key players during the regular season — and in the post season. To start out the 2012 season draft pick Josh Chapman was placed on the physically unable to perform list, former starting middle linebacker […]

The Real Impact of Beating the Packers for a Young Colts Team

Watching the Indianapolis Colts defeat the Green Bay Packers in Week 5 of the 2012 NFL season should be etched in the memories of all Colts fans. The importance of the victory expands well beyond the impressive individual performances of players like Andrew Luck and Reggie Wayne. It expands well beyond the importance of a […]

Colts Sign ILB Larry Lumpkin Following Supplemental Draft

After all the buzz surrounding Baylor wide receiver Josh Gordon entering the 2012 NFL Supplemental Draft, and some discussion regarding how the Colts might consider grabbing Gordon to be a tall, speedy downfield threat, the young receiver ended up in Cleveland. The second round draft pick the Browns forfeited in 2013 to grab the troubled […]

2012 Colts Salary Cap Page – Summer Update

The Silliness of Mainstream Media Perspectives Regarding Colts Offensive Questions

While it certainly comes as no surprise that NFL talking heads and mainstream media sources would ask a lot of questions about the short-term future of the Indianapolis Colts offense, many of the questions that are being raised seem like the wrong ones. ESPN’s Paul Kuharsky raised questions about the offensive line and the NFL’s […]

In Case You Missed It: Colts TE Coby Fleener on Sports Science

Earlier this year ESPN Sports Science took a look at Coby Fleener’s leaping ability and leg power. I really enjoy the Sports Science program and thought that it would be a video our readers would want to see. It’s exciting to see how Fleener will continue to develop in the NFL.

Colts Sign OT George Foster, Release FB Mahaffey

Colts General Manager Ryan Grigson continues to place a great deal of emphasis on getting new faces on the team for the 2012 offensive line. New to the mix is former first round pick George Foster (2003 – Denver). To make room for the acquisition, Indy parted ways with fullback Ryan Mahaffey. Foster has journeyed […]

Former Colts Slot Receiver Anthony Gonzalez Released by Patriots

Less than three months ago the New England Patriots snatched up Anthony Gonzalez after he was allowed to enter free agency. Now he finds himself looking for a job once again. Although it seems unlikely that the Colts would choose to re-sign Gonzalez during the summer while they’re spending time getting young receivers acclimated to […]

Targeted Cornerback Mike Jenkins Update

Late last week it was reported that the Colts are aggressively pursuing former Pro Bowl cornerback Mike Jenkins from the Dallas Cowboys. While little can be confirmed regarding how much Indianapolis General Manager Ryan Grigson is willing to give to obtain the Cowboys cornerback, ESPN’s John Clayton opines that if Dallas does choose to move […]
