of the Tennessee Titans against the Indianapolis Colts at Lucas Oil Stadium on January 3, 2016 in Indianapolis, Indiana.

Colts finish with a win, 30-24

We just saw the Colts hold on to finish 8-8 in a year with Super Bowl expectations versus a team that finished 3-13 in a year with maybe 8-8 expectations.  It was a hard season to watch, but at least we aren’t Titans fans, watching one unwatchable farce after another.  If you know a Tennessee […]

Game Over: Colts Offense Dies Against Houston, 16-10

Today, we saw a hideous game and a hobbled, beat-up quarterback who had no business playing in the first place.  As former Colts Authority editor Greg Cowan said during the game, this is the kind of game you show to a non-football fan so they’ll feel better about their life choices (or something along those […]

Post Apocalyptic Colts Roundtable: What Would Irsay Say? & Who is in Charge Next Year?

Well, Colts fans, it happened.  The Roundtable got weird.  Oh, wait, that already happened.  If you’re reading this, it’s likely you’ve gone off the deep end with us. Today, after another debacle loss may have sealed some people’s fate in the organization, we’re speculating about coaches and general managers, and looking into Andrew Luck’s future. […]

WHAT THE HECK JUST HAPPENED?! Jags 51, Colts 16

Somewhere in the afternoon quiet of the North Florida retirement community the Jaguars call home, you could hear the wheels falling further off of the Colts’ once-promising season. Grit, determination, toughness, Chuck Pagano’s poker chips – none of these things could save them. We all would’ve loved to see Matt Hasselbeck have one more good […]

Well, that escalated quickly: Steelers 45, Colts 10

The game started out hilariously, with Jacoby Jones receiving the kickoff, running it out form 8 yards deep, then promptly fumbling the ball (Jonathan Newsom knocked it free – this is a guy who should be on the field more.  Good things happen around number 91) The Colts, in great field position, did what the […]

Roundtable part 1: Steelers, How do We Loathe Thee?

Please note that this is all in fun, right down to the cheesy poetry reference in the title. If you are a Steelers fan reading this, bear in mind that people joke about “hating” (or loathing, in this case) your team because they are a standard for NFL success. If people are writing pieces like this about […]

Colts Roundtable: Bold Predictions & What on Earth Happened to the Run Game?

Hello, Colts fans.  I hope you’ve all had a fantastic Thanksgiving and a safe, responsible black Friday (I gladly haven’t gone anywhere near a retail establishment today). While the Colts prepare for the surprisingly dangerous Buccaneers and Chuck Pagano works on this week’s motivational catchphrase, we’re taking the roundtable in two directions: lighthearted (bold predictions […]

Colts March past Atlanta 24-21

Today, I’m giving you my complete, unabridged, unfiltered (probably a bad idea), barely edited recap/ game diary, written as this sweet, if somewhat ugly, win unfolded, with a few adjustments.  So, raise a glass to our pal Matt Hasselbeck (who surely needs a drink after getting knocked around all afternoon), and re-live the win with […]

Colts Roundtable: Indy’s Weird Season Continues in Atlanta

(If you’re confused about that photo, watch this…unique commercial: Andrew Luck AmeriTrade ) Lame ducks, infighting, injuries, weird losses, weirder wins.  Nearly losing to the Jaguars, nearly beating the Patriots, that stupid play that was never should’ve happened, the devastating low of a major injury to Andrew Luck.  This is the Colts’ 2015 season.  It’s been a […]

Colts Bye Week Roundtable of Awesomeness

After a week punctuated by both an exhilarating win and awful news about Andrew Luck, we have…a bye.  This team has needed a bye for about…eight weeks now, and it’s finally here – but not without questions.  I posed a few burning queries that many of us may be thinking of already (or will be now, sorry) […]

Week 9 Colts Roundtable: Beating the Expectations (and Peyton)

  Imagine Peyton Manning with a great defense, we used to say.  That would be awesome, we used to say.  Well, here we are.  Peyton + Defense is coming to town, and the 3-5 Colts need to find a way to send them home wondering what went wrong. Sunday’s game has the potential to be […]

during their game at Bank of America Stadium on November 2, 2015 in Charlotte, North Carolina. The Panthers won 29-26 in overtime.

Almost Doesn’t Count: Colts 26, Panthers 29 in OT

  The Colts nearly dead offense started off looking shaky.  I can deal with shaky.  They’ve won games looking shaky back when they STILL KNEW WHAT THE NO HUDDLE OFFENSE WAS.  But they wound up gifting the Panthers a possession in Indy territory with a bad center-quarterback exchange. Indy’s defense came through, as they would […]

Rolling Ball of Questions: The Week 8 Colts Round Table

  As the Colts, 3-4 but still first in the AFC South, prepare to play the 6-0 Carolina Panthers…Wait, that intro makes me feel like I’ve accidentally time traveled into a dystopian alternate NFL future aboard a faulty DeLorean or erstwhile T.A.R.D.I.S.   Rolling ball of butcher knives! (…is what I say when I’m upset now.  Or […]

Colts Fake-Punt it Away against the Pats, 34-27

Sunday night football, Colts vs. Patriots in beautiful Indianapolis, and the Pats fans’ internet troll game was going strong.  Someone needed to shut them up.  Everybody knows which team is better, but we still wanted – no, we needed – to see an upset.  The Colts, with their warrior quarterback coming back, were poised to […]

Around the Writers’ Table Week 6: How do you Knock off the Patriots?

(The above image comes from profootballmock.com) This week, the Colts await their matchup with the dreaded, disgusting New England Patriots (the hateriots).  Are the good guys just a prisoner on death row, awaiting Belichick’s wrath, or are they – as we Colts fans faintly hope – the most dangerous of underdogs – a sleeping giant, even, […]

Colts do just enough to take down the Jags 16-13 in OT

This was a game in which the Colts sorely needed a W.  The chasm between 2-2 and 1-3 is an enormous one, but as many of us suspected during the week, Indianapolis would need to rely heavily on veteran backup Matt Hasselbeck (or as Colts radio announcer Bob Lamey continually calls him, “Hassel-back”) while Andrew […]

Schefter: Andrew Luck is “Legitimately Questionable” for Sunday

Well, Colts fans, I told you not to panic.  I even joked around about it.  But now, people who know what they’re talking about are saying Andrew Luck could be a no go on Sunday when Indianapolis hosts the Jaguars.  The report comes courtesy of Adam Schefter’s…Facebook account (Facebook?  Really?  You break news on Twitter, Adam.  […]

Andrew Luck Limited in Practice with Right Shoulder Injury

The reports came first as rumors (“Hey, bro, did you see Andrew Luck wince in agony as he was unexpectedly patted on the chest by 97-year old backup Matt Hasselbeck?”), but now they are here in full force.  Don’t panic yet.  Andrew Luck is day-to-day with a right shoulder injury.  Now, you may panic. In […]
