Colts going with a different o-line, with McGlynn listed as ‘doubtful’

They've played well recently, but Indy's o-line will probably not be playing Mike McGlynn on Sunday. Though they're likely just taking precautions (and hoping that McGlynn will be ready for the playoffs), it means Indy will be starting their 8th offensive line combination this year. The story, by Mike Wells, is on ESPN. “In the National […]

Brooke: Luck’s second year vs. Manning’s second year

As you'd expect, they're actually pretty similar. Still, when comparing Andrew Luck to Peyton Manning – as Tyler Brooke comments – it's difficult to hold them under the same lens. Anyway, the results, as per Bleacher Report, are very interesting (and it's a pretty short read, so go for it). Of course, we have to […]

From the dark side: 10 things Jacksonville must do to beat Indy

Don't worry – I'll delete my browsing history as soon as I'm done – but this week, I've stumbled across an article via jaguars.com about ten things Jacksonville must do to beat Indianapolis. While none of us want this to happen, or think it will (bar a surprise visit from Jim Caldwell), reading the game from […]

Wells: Colts o-line is stepping up, just in time

… in essence, he's correct: the Indianapolis Colts are finally watching their offensive line make some progress. Curiously, most of that might be due to Andrew Luck (more on that in a moment), but according to Mike Wells via ESPN, it's the right time for the line to start gelling. Despite all the mixing and […]

AP: Matt Overton’s Road to the NFL

Matt Overton, as some of you know, is Indy's long snapper. The AP has a story on his path the NFL; from their account, it was anything but easy. He made two stops in the Arena Football League, was cut twice by the Seahawks in training camp and once by the Texans. And when the […]

Indy players all get an X-Box One, direct from Jim Irsay

Maybe it's the number of players on the IR; I've heard it can be hella-boring around this time of year. Anyway, Jim Irsay decided that, for Christmas, he'd get everyone on the team a $500 gaming system (because, you know. He can). The complete story is here, via CBS. Christmas came early for the Indianapolis Colts on […]

Ten guys you wouldn’t want to miss practice … do

Sigh. I guess it's that time of the year. Maybe the odds of Baltimore and Indy winning out are too slim. Maybe they're just playing it safe. But on Thursday, ten players – including Sergio Brown and T.Y. Hilton – missed practice, prompting a "let's use everyone as best we can" mentality. The complete story, […]

Colts: we’re coming to play, says KC Star

It's week 16 – but in a strange way, one 11-3 team and one 9-5 team will be playing for basically nothing. If you don't believe me, a clever little site I frequent – playoffstatus.com – has the probability of each team's seeding based on record and remaining games. And yes – even with a […]

Colts back in seeding mix, prompts bird jokes

Week 15 was beautiful. Denver, New England, and Cincinnati all lost, so the Colts climbed a game by virtue of Houston; meanwhile, AP writer Michael Marot has a bit regarding seeding, as the AFC playoff picture stands right now. Last Monday, after losing at Cincinnati, the Colts (9-5) appeared to be locked into the AFC's […]

Colts players happy with their job, given previous ones

In a curious little side article, Phil Richards goes into the backgrounds of guys like Vick Ballard and Pat McAfee, and the previous jobs they had before the NFL. While it's tough to see them as normally working people (my watering-plants-at-the-crack-of-dawn job isn't televised), Richards's article gives a very human perspective to Indy's players. Vick Ballard […]

Defense good, muses the wise Mike Wells

We're back! Clearly, my absence over the last week has nothing to do with the semester's end. It's all good news too, because – get this – Andrew Luck has never lost a game after putting up 25 points on an NFL opponent. He's also never lost a regular season game after beating Houston, so you can […]

A bit more on Adongo, via the Indy Star

I hasn't heard of Daniel Adongo before last offseason; now, I know a few things: 1. Adongo used to play rugby. 2. He hasn't played professional football before. 3. He might play this week. 4. He is UTTERLY TERRIFYING. I mean, especially after seeing pictures the Indy Star has posted, I've realized that I, at 5'7'', could […]

Kelley: Colts to Face Up-And-Down Fitz

It's more an analysis on Ryan Fitzpatrick than anything else, but Craig Kelley's take on Tennessee's QB gives a good insight into Sunday's game. A few of us still remember that one time when Buffalo started 5-1 in '08 behind the quarterback of the fut- or wait, that was Trent Edwards. Hm. Never mind. Fitzpatrick will […]

Wilson: Colts Should be Thankful! +Reasons

I heard that Colts fans are coddled. Think about it – we've had an awesome quarterback for 14 of the last 15 years, made the playoffs all but three times in that span, aren't Buffalo, and will probably make the playoffs this year. Still, a few days after a blowout loss (on the road) to Arizona […]

Irsay Acts Like True Fan, Explodes on Twitter

Sigh. At it again, Jim Irsay decided that his frustration (and ours) would be best expressed on Twitter; hence, the following: (there are quite a few, and the rest are here, on NFL.com) In Golf you're allowed 14 clubs..but if you're playing with 9 clubs..U got to hood a 8 iron n hIt It like […]
