Mathis, via NFL.com: “We have the tools to get it done.”

NFL has a story on DPOY finalist Robert Mathis, who opened up about what he thought of Indy's chances next year. Whether he's slightly biased towards Indy's cause, or secretly knows something none of us do … … anyway, the full article and video, via NFL.com, is here. Mathis pointed to the growth of young Andrew Luck and […]

Luck vs. Wlison: does the ring change anything?

Not this again. For years, Colt fans watched Peyton Manning get passed over for Tom Brady on the "who's the better quarterback?" discussion, no pun intended … despite playing on a conservative, otherwise-mediocre team with (perhaps) two or three guys on defense that we'll remember ten years from now. I won't even get into this. Mike […]

Bowen: how the heck did Indy beat Seattle?

It's a callback to earlier this season, but one that deserves some mention going into this weekend: Indy, after barely squeaking a single win from Oakland and Miami, went on a two-game winning streak on the road … and then returned home to face the Seattle Seahawks, in one of the greatest games of their […]

Brooke: 6 late-round steals Indy should be looking at

With Indy entering a very … strange … offseason, and with their struggles in last year's draft class, Ryan Grigson has his work cut out for him. The toughest players to sort out in a draft are offensive linemen and defensive backs, and both positions are major concerns for Indy. Tyler Brooke, from Bleacher Report, […]

Luck goes early in the Pro Bowl draft, for those following

Good things happened this year. Robert Mathis had a career year, the Colts – while inconsistent at times – proved that they could play with every team in the league, including both Superbowl teams … oh, and Luck was finally established as the best young quarterback in the NFL. I can say that here, because […]

Five Colts who shouldn’t be back next year

And it's an original list, without omitting too many players. For Rant Sports, David Lewis has five guys who are either too much money, or too many problems, to keep anyway. Kelven Sheppard Sheppard was traded to the Colts from the Buffalo Bills during the 2013 offseason, and his lack of production at the inside linebacker position […]

Luck in Pro Bowl, like he probably should be

I say "probably" because Andrew Luck wasn't really in the top-6 statistically, for any category. His stats this year were actually somewhat underwhelming: 12th in completions, 11th in attempts, 24th in completion percentage, 13th in yards. 15th in touchdowns. Despite that, his play itself – with the Colts, a team with the second most games […]

Vontae Davis, free agent watch

Mike Wells is discussing free agents who might leave Indy this offseason, and while I haven't blogged about much else, this is the time of season where free agents become a serious concern for many teams like Indy. Thankfully, with very few players outdoing themselves this season (see: Colts on the Pro Bowl roster), Indy […]

Hamilton among coaches who might leave Indy

For the first time since he was signed by Detroit, Jim Caldwell is frustrating me again. First, I was excited to see how one of the most explosively awful teams of 2013 would handle The Blinkless Wonder. Then, I was excited to see how Caldwell would fare in his second season without Manning under center. […]

Hayes: Free agent questions for Indy

According to Reggie Hayes, from the News Sentinel, the Colts are currently facing difficult offseason questions: who to resign, who to let walk, etc. While a mistakes will probably be made, Hayes highlights players who are right on the edge. Body language and words seem to indicate Bethea expects to be wearing another uniform next […]

Myers: Polian wanted Luck to play under Manning

A curious article was published by the New York Daily News yesterday, as – according to writer Gary Myers – former G.M. Bill Polian was interested in drafting Luck and keeping Manning before he was fired. Polian, currently working for ESPN as an "Insider" writer, spoke to the Daily News on Wednesday. Polian knew it […]

Andrew Luck conference call, via … New England media

About to head an out-of-town assault on the NFL equivalent of the Death Star, Andrew Luck still found time to address the New England media. Maybe this just plays into my "Reggie=Obi Wan" comparison, but whatever the reason, I thought the interview was interesting. ——- Q: Schemes don’t necessarily change too much with teams from year […]

Kelley: Colts on the road to New England

In an epic rematch, known to Colts fans as 'years of heartbreak made up by one '06 postseason comeback', the Colts will be travelling to play against New England on Saturday. The Patriots, great lovers of home field advantage and overglorified quarterbacks, are part of north-western america – and are therefore (like the rest of […]
