What to Expect: David Parry

Welcome back to What to Expect, a long-running Colts Authority tradition that reminds the world that once-upon-a-time, I used to write football articles. Please note that when I say “long running”, I mean that it will take me the rest of the summer to get to the sixth round. Each spring, I evaluate the picks […]

Eyes in the Backfield: Patriots 45 Colts 7

12 Things We Saw in Sunday’s New England-Indianapolis Game Well that was ugly. There’s only so much to say about a game where one side was completely outmatched.  So let’s say it, pack up and move on to 2015. 1. We saw predictability. While we (the royal we) hoped the game would be close, what […]

Eyes in the Backfield: Colts 24 Broncos 13

12 Things We Saw in Sunday’s Indianapolis-Denver Game Five years ago, I promised that one day I would update Blue Blood if the Colts won the Super Bowl.

What To Expect from the 2014 Draft: Revisited

After every draft, Colts Authority publishes the “What to Expect” series. This is designed to help establish historical baselines by which rookies can be measured. Too often fan expectations for rookies are wildly out of alignment with reasonable expectations based on past performance by similar players. The goal of What to Expect is not to […]

Eyes in the Backfield: Colts 27 Titans 10

Eyes in the Backfield: Cowboys 42 Colts 7

What We Saw in the Dallas-Indianapolis Game Under normal circumstances, I would lay out 12 things that happened in Sunday’s game. Given the total and complete nature of the Colts collapse, that would feel a bit redundant. Instead, allow me to make the following points only, then we shall never talk about Sunday’s game again.

Eyes in the Backfield: Colts 17 Texans 10

12 Things We Saw in Sunday’s Indianapolis-Houston Game Another week, another win over a quarterback not fit to be on an NFL roster.

Who To Root For: Week 15

Do not ask who to root for. It roots for you. At this point, I’m scarcely making sense anymore. Welcome to Who to Root For, where each week, I take some literary cliche, and make it somehow even more trope-ish by turning it into a bad pun. Like every week, I’ll give you insight into […]

Eyes In the Backfield: Colts 25 Browns 24

12 Things We Saw in Sunday’s Indianapolis-Cleveland Game The Indianapolis Colts are many things, but boring is not one of them. The Horse pulled out a thrilling comeback over the Browns, and all but sewed up a playoff spot in the process. There are some weeks where securing a “happy Sunday” is just a little […]

Who to Root For: Week 14

Welcome to Who to Root For, a weekly exercise in laziness that generally involves me cutting and pasting my intro, only to tweak a few words, to keep anyone from guessing that I had done so.

Who to Root For: Week 13

Welcome to “Who to Root For”, that annual exercise in improper grammar where I take the role of nanny state with your weekend, and in some cases your holiday, though not really because no AFC teams actually play on Thanksgiving. I considered using a #thanksobama hash tag here, but decided against it because I can’t […]

Who To Root For: Week 12

Welcome to “Who to Root For”, that annual exercise in improper grammar where I take the role of nanny state with your weekend. Only sometimes, I do it late so you have to guess. Hey, I never claimed to be a good nanny. I’m more of a “rooting au pair”. I’m gonna stop now, ok? […]
