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 […]

Pat McAfee Named AFC Special Teams Player of the Week

While he’s busy working tirelessly to be the best punter and kickoff specialist in the league, the NFL has taken notice once again, making Pat McAfee the AFC Special Teams Player of the Week after the Colts’ 33-28 win over the Texans. McAfee no doubt caught a few eyes when he recovered his own onside kick […]

Colts Hold Off the Texans’ Comeback Bid, 33-28

It was pretty.  Then it was really ugly.  We’ll take the result.  If the game had lasted another quarter or two, the Texans might have won their Thursday night matchup with their all-time nemesis. But alas, our Colts prevailed, though not before spending three full quarters holding on for dear life and watching as J.J. […]

Throwdown Thursday: Blitzpatrick (Colts at Texans)

It’s time for Throwdown Thursday, the most argumentative game preview in all the interwebs.  (And yes, feel free to caption the above ‘photo’ in the comments or via Twitter) Todd Smith: This morning I’ve got a staggering hangover. I didn’t drink but feel absolutely loony about being forced to listen to the media gag themselves […]

Colts Notebook: Preparing for Watt, Foster, & Fitzpatrick’s Epic Beard

Good morning, Colts fans. I’m sure you’ve been wondering, “Where is the fun, quasi-newspapery greatness that is the Colts Authority Colts Notebook? Has the author gone on vacation, sabbatical, double secret probation?”  Okay, you probably didn’t say that.  In actuality, the day job has been wearing me down (shameless plug, I know), but today, we […]

Colts Throttle Another AFC South Team, 41-17 over Tennessee

Another Sunday, another game against a division rival with an identical record (going in), and once again, the record is where the similarities between the teams begin and end. The Titans came in on a two game losing streak, playing their backup quarterback, while the Colts had just moved on from a 44-17 beatdown of […]

Andrew Luck Named AFC Offensive Player of the Week

Andrew Luck, the NFL’s touchdown pass leader through three weeks, has been named the AFC Offensive Player of the Week after his 370-yard, 4 touchdown performance against the Jaguars on Sunday. His completion percentage (79.5%) and rating (140.4) were career highs. Yes, we can talk all day about how the Jaguars defense is just awful […]

Colts Blow the Doors off the Jags, 44-17

  The Colts and Jaguars each came into this game at 0-2, but that, my friends, was the beginning and end of their similarity. Indianapolis had nearly won a game in which they probably should’ve lost and barely lost a game they most certainly should have won. Jacksonville, meanwhile, had been shellacked this season by […]

Throwdown Thursday: Colts vs Eagles

  Throwdown Thursday is a weekly feature wherein Todd Smith and I look at two different sides of an issue going into each game and then argue and debate with each other until one of us – probably Todd – wins. Last week, the Indianapolis defense couldn’t piece together a complete game, as their second […]
