#KeepManningInIndy – Competition for Funny Tweets to Irsay

Here’s what I tweet to Irsay this morning.  And yes, I saw the typo (your->you’re), doh! Anyway, I figured I’d keep a musical theme going.  @JimIrsay If you can’t be with the QB you love, buddy, love the one your with. #KeepManningInIndy How about this for a challenge to ColtsAuthority readers?:  Whether you think he […]

Moments in Time

Colts Authority reader matt_has wrote a piece that offers a different perspective regarding Peyton Manning’s future with the Colts. This is another excellent piece we thought readers would enjoy on the front page. Preface: I can see both sides of the Manning/Luck debate, but I expect Manning to be cut. With that expectation in mind, […]

Dr. Michael Kaplan expects Manning to play

Dr. Michael Kaplan said on ESPN Wednesday, January 25th, 2012 that he absolutely expects Peyton Manning to be playing QB in the NFL in 2012. Kaplan stated that with the type of surgery that Peyton received, the end result is one that actually strengthens the neck and spine. He went on to say that of […]

One Last Request

Colts Authority reader Music Man wrote an excellent piece defending the retention of Peyton Manning, even if the team intends to draft Andrew Luck. We’ve brought it to the front page for our readers. It’s hard to hold on to an idea when everyone tells you you’re nuts. This isn’t the first time, nor will […]

Breaking Down the Coaching Candidates

The Colts have fired Jim Caldwell, and it’s time to bring a new guy in. A once big coaching candidates list, has now become a short one. There are 5 candidates still in the mix. Here they are:   Marty Mornhinweg Mornhinweg is a very offensive minded coach. He is the Eagles offensive coordinator and […]

Four College Coaches the Colts Should Interview

College coaches don’t always work in the NFL.  College football is all about macro-scheming, coming up with massive new schemes or retreading ancient schemes that completely throw off opponents and work to your strength.  The NFL is all about micro-scheming, taking the same basic persennel that is available across the NFL and making small adjustments […]

2012 Colts Mock Draft

2012 Colts Mock Draft 1st Overall Pick (1st Round) Andrew Luck – Quarterback – Stanford This pick is a no brainer. Andrew Luck is not only the best QB in college right now, but he’s one of the best prospects in recent memory. He’s been considered to be the next Peyton Manning. Speaking of Manning, […]

The Trade Down

I’m sure I’ll be crushed by some, as I have on another blog run by a less fair and patient bastion of bloggers, but I’m looking at this anyway.   Many of us have commented that we’d be interested in a trade down, or at least looking at the option. What we lack is a […]

A Vision of Jim Popp, Colts GM

What can we expect if the Colts hire Jim Popp as Colts GM?  Allow me to make a few observations: Jim Popp’s career has been built around great QB play.  In the last 4 years, Montreal’s QB has won the CFL MVP two times.  Popp’s teams have run a spread gameplan with 2-3 players each […]

Chris Mortensen reports Colts will draft Luck

Reader gizzardfanny links to tweets initiated by Chris Mortensen and confirmed by Adam Schefter that the Colts intend to draft Luck with the first pick.   These tweets are the first substantial rumors, at least to me. Mostly because it comes from Mort who has gained some credibily when it comes to Colts related rumors. […]

The Most Confusing Colts Game

The most confusing Colt’s game. From a fans point of view, this was the most confusing game to watch. Going into the game I knew I wanted to see my boys in blue (or white today) come out of the season on a 3 game win streak. Heads held high, sucking for no one, playing […]

The Case Against Bill Polian

Nate makes the case against Bill Polian, which is different from the popular criticisms often used in the media.   I love a good debate. I love when there are points to be made on both sides, and the dialogue is intense. This season, one of the most hotly debated topics among Colts writers (though […]

Merry Christmas

Merry Christmas from Colts Authority’s Nate Dunlevy   A multitude of angels, a band of shepherds, three wise man, two frightened parents, one Baby, one God; some things are worth coming for.  Throngs of hurting people, a host of angry officials, twelve naive disciples, one Man, one God; some things are worth leaving for.  Thunder, […]

Painter v. Orlovsky

Nate breaks down the comparison between Colts quarterbacks Dan Orlovsky and Curtis Painter.   Some have made the claim recently that Orlvosky has played at a level Curtis Painter is not capable of. I believe Painter not only played at that level, but surpassed it. Painter’s play was never the same after the New Orleans […]

Quick Notes On The Win

Nate breaks down notable occurrences and performances in the Colts win over the Texans.   It’s Christmas and I’m exhausted from a long and memorable night. I’m not going spin up a narrative today. You all saw Reggie Wayne with his arms raised. That’s all the narrative any of us need.  My quick hits: I […]
