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 […]

Colts Sign Receiver/Returner Josh Cribbs

The Indianapolis Colts signed free agent KR/WR Josh Cribbs today. Cribbs is best known for his time in Cleveland where he racked up 11 return touchdowns from 2005-2012 and generally caused headaches for opposing special teams coordinators. Cribbs, 31, also has seen some spot time at receiver, although in 2011 he actually spend quite a […]

Trampled: Colts 20 Patriots 42

The Colts started things off with a three and out, then on defense, allowed the Patriots to march 89 yards, mostly on the ground, for the first touchdown of the game. It bore an eerie resemblance to their playoff matchup a few months ago. There were glimmers of hope here and there – and the […]

Colts Notebook: Patriots Preparations, Brown vs. Landry at Safety

Happy Veterans Day, Colts fans. I hope everyone takes a moment to thank someone who’s served our country, and if possible, try to do so in person, or at least over the phone. The bye is finally over, and it’s time for the top scoring offense in football to go back to work. Even after […]

Colts Whip New York 40-24

First Impressions: – Andrew Luck is tough and also every other positive cliché you can apply to a quarterback.  He had a tough game accuracy-wise, faced constant pressure, and still finished with 4 touchdowns and zero picks.  25/46 for 354 and 4 with a 108.4 QB rating.  On the road.  His 7th straight game of […]

Colts Unable to Keep Up With Steelers, Lose 51-34

Well, that took forever. Here are your quick-hit observations: – The Colts had little to no pass rush, which killed any chance of stopping the heretofore ambling, so-so Pittsburgh offense. – Indy’s offense struggled until an illegal contact penalty in the second quarter freed up the receivers a bit. Before that, Colts receivers were wearing […]

Colts Shut Out the Bengals 27-0

  Well, that’s a wrap. 27-0. Quick Hit Observations in No Particular Order 1. The Colts punt coverage team (and Pat McAfee) came out on fire, and needed to be, because punts were flying early.  Even when the returner got loose in the fourth quarter, McAfee was there to take him down with a strong […]
