Colts Authority’s Rookie Watch – Week 3

Well I don't know about you, but I'm still in shock. Having seen Donald Thomas and Dwayne Allen placed on IR, a disappointing loss to the Dolphins and a blockbuster trade for running back Trent Richardson, there was a mood of negativity surrounding the Colts as they headed to San Francisco, looking to defeat the […]

What if…the Colts had traded the #1 pick?

Editor's Note: This is purely hypothetical fun. Olly was bored, which generally is when our most interesting things get done. If we get any angry comments/tweets/emails about how we hate Luck and need to let go of the past, blah, blah, blah I will never photoshop (ok, paint) Jim Irsay onto a fire-breathing stallion again. […]

Rookie Watch – Week 2

Well that was deflating. From scraping past the Oakland Raiders – often compared to an expansion team – to scoring just three second half points against the Miami Dolphins in a close loss, the 2013 season hasn't exactly got off to the best of starts. Whilst head coach Chuck Pagano isn't in immediate danger of […]

Ballard out with torn ACL – trade winds blowing?

With the news of Vick Ballard’s torn ACL breaking on Friday, the Colts are left with just Ahmad Bradshaw and Donald Brown at running back. Delone Carter was traded to the Baltimore Ravens in exchange for wide receiver David Reed, whilst seventh round pick Kerwynn Williams is on the practice squad. Shortly after Ballard was […]

Colts Authority Rookie Watch – Week 1

The Colts' 2013 Draft class hasn't exactly got off to the best of starts. Hugh Thornton and Khaled Holmes missed considerable time during training camp and preseason games, Kerwynn Williams and Justice Cunningham were cut before making the practice squad, and safety John Boyett was cut after being arrested last week. Each week I'll be […]

An Evening with Andrew Luck

Last Friday evening, I was lucky enough to be present for a question and answer session with Colts quarterback Andrew Luck in London. Being the pitiful fanboy that I am, I travelled 200 miles to the other end of England to meet him, which took a painful 7 hours, but the end goal made it […]

All-22 Analysis: Scouting Montori Hughes

Having traded a 2013 5th round pick in order to move up to select T.Y. Hilton in the 2012 NFL Draft, Ryan Grigson mortgaged a part of the team's future by trading away a 2014 4th round pick to Cleveland Browns for a 5th round selection this year. With that 5th round selection, the Colts […]

Scouting Bjoern Werner

As I'm sure you all know by now, the Indianapolis Colts selected Florida State defensive end Bjoern Werner in the first round of the 2013 NFL Draft on Thursday night. Having allowed Dwight Freeney to leave in Free Agency, the team was crying out for a pass rusher – even after the frivolous signing of […]

Marqueis Gray WR prospect - Troy Taormina-USATS

MarQueis Gray – Mr. Irrelevant Candidate?

For the second consecutive year, the Indianapolis Colts will hold the final pick of the draft – otherwise known as Mr. Irrelevant. The term "Mr. Irrelevant" may seem derogatory, but the final pick of the draft each year is invited to spend a week in Newport Beach, California, where they will attend various events and […]

First Round Mock Draft Review – Part Two

April is here, which means the NFL Draft is just around the corner. The needs of teams are starting to become clearer as the free agency pandemonium slows down, but there is still a variety of positional needs highlighted in mock drafts released over the last few days. (Editor's note: Each players' name carries a […]

Colts Draft Targets: Keenan Allen vs DeAndre Hopkins

All Colts fans will be familiar with Jim Irsay's Twitter adventures over the weekend. Our eccentric owner was regularly tweeting that Indy were working on a trade to bring a wide receiver to the team, but that the deal was taking longer than they had hoped. We've heard very little on the matter since, and […]

Free Agency Review: Who Exactly is Donald Thomas?

  One of the keys to the offseason for the Colts was to improve the offensive line. Whilst the signing of Lions right tackle Gosder Cherilus provides an upgrade over Winston Justice, the interior of the line provided the most concern. And whilst the media regularly linked the team with moves for Buffalo Bills guard […]

Desmond Trufant Film Review

(Joe Nicholson-USA TODAY Sports) Colts General Manager Ryan Grigson was questioned by ESPN blogger Paul Kuharsky last week on whether he would be more comfortable starting a rookie offensive lineman, or a rookie defensive back – two positions of need for the Colts. Grigson's response has set tongues wagging in the Colts community, as he […]
