Ball-gate: Patriots Under Investigation for Cheating. Again.

Ah, another chapter in the lore of the New England Patriots’ apparent disregard for rules or sportsmanship: Bill Belichick’s deflated balls. Yes, the pats are under investigation for slightly deflating their footballs for last night’s game to make them easier to handle, throw, and catch. This is significant because each team uses their own set […]

Colts Flatlined in the AFC Championship 45-7

A little part, perhaps even a big part, of all of us knew it could end this way. The Patriots are a more talented team, playing at home. The Colts had fallen flat against elite teams all year, and there was a lingering feeling that the Denver team they saw last week just didn’t have […]

Defensive Dominance in the Divisional Round: Colts 24 Broncos 13

The Colts headed into a positively dismal Divisional Round matchup in Denver. On paper, anyway. On the field, there’s Andrew Luck, and T.Y. Hilton, Vontae Davis (Give that man the game ball!), and Trent Richar—-scratch that last one. Healthy scratch, actually. Indy is headed to the AFC Championship game in Bill Belichick’s frozen Death Star […]

Colts Send Hugh Thornton to IR, Sign RB Michael Hill

Hugh Thornton, battling a sprained MCL in his right knee since November along with a shoulder injury, has been sent to the Injured Reserve heading into the Divisional Round of the playoffs. Interestingly, instead of adding an offensive lineman, the Colts brought running back Michael Hill in from the Washington practice squad (He spent time […]

Colts Get the Wild Card Win 26-10 over Cincinnati

Great win for the Colts today.  Andrew Luck looked like a playoff-tested quarterback against a very good defense, Boom Herron and Adam Vinatieri earned each game balls, and the team fought their way to a date with Denver next week. As we’ve done since it received surprisingly positive reviews, here are the game notes as […]

Colts Go to the Bench but Win Anyway, 27-10 over Tennessee

- The Colts won 27-10 while reminding the AFC South they have the division’s top two quarterbacks. Unfortunately, the final tune up before the playoffs included some injuries (prepare for an offensive linemen signing this week). Here are the unabridged, unfiltered game notes, complete with sarcasm, snarky-ness, and sprinkled the occasional scrap of insight:

Dallas Shell-Shocks Colts 42-7

Well, that didn’t go as planned (Was there any planning?  Did they watch film?).  Sometimes, everything just goes the other guy’s way. It’s happened all too often against the league’s elite this year – an about face from 2013, but certainly nothing quite like this.  Here, because 42-7 doesn’t merit much more, are my semi-entertaining, […]

Texans Plan to Get Rough with Hilton, Colts Prep for JJ Watt

The Colts are preparing for their home matchup with the Texans and for the Great Golden J.J. Watt to ride into town on his fire breathing unicorn of magnificence, wielding a light saber, and trying to sack-fumble everything in sight, including your grandma’s 87 Buick (watch out Grandma). Yeah, he’s okay, I guess, but we […]

Stubborn Colts Storm back 25-24 over Cleveland

The Indianapolis Colts flew to pigeon-infested Cleveland and teetered on the edge of disaster for three quarters before seizing a victory from the jaws of…well, you saw it. 25-24. With Andrew Luck and T.Y. Hilton, you’re (pretty much) never really out of the running. Here are the game notes. Please excuse the typos and verb […]

Andrew Luck: AFC Offensive Player of the Month

  Andrew Luck has been named the AFC Player of the Month for November, which seems like the obvious choice. Here are Luck’s numbers this month: 26/46 for 354 yards, 4 TDs/0 INTs. 23/39 for 303, 2/1. 21/32 for 253, 1/0. 19/27 for 370, 4/1. That’s 1280 yards, 12 TDs and just 2 picks and […]

Colts Outpace Washington 49-27

  Because of a scheduling conflict, I’m giving you more of a game notes-style recap today, written as the game played out. Please excuse the bad grammar and enjoy the unusually high level of snarky-ness (and another Colts win):   – Out of the gate, the Colts had a nice return by Josh Cribbs, then […]

Recap and Observations: Colts 23 – Jags 3

(pictured above: the last time Gus Bradley smiled today. Photo Credit: Pat Lovell-USA TODAY Sports) A home game against the Jaguars. Just what the doctor ordered, right? Well, not exactly in the first half. The Colts offense, well, let’s just says it was ugly early on, and the Jaguars were just plain hilarious. CBS should’ve […]

Colts Waive Griff Whalen, Call up Zurlon Tipton

Yes, the Colts have shown receiver/returner Griff Whalen the door. Whalen was actually 8th in the league in kick return average at 25.2 yards (19th in punt return average at 7.2 yards), although average starting position after a return wasn’t something I could find quickly (feel free to send a link in the comments or […]

Roster Move Wrap Up: Bradshaw to IR, Saunders and Cribbs Signed

  Along with signing Josh Cribbs today, the Colts did some injury-related roster shuffling. The team signed tight end Weslye Saunders (They must have Saunders on speed dial by now), waived OLB Victor Butler, and placed Ahmad Bradshaw on Injured Reserve. It’s a tough blow to the team, fans, and Bradshaw, who broke his left […]
