Who To Root For: Week 14

There are four weeks to go. There is still a chance. The Colts are looking for a dream scenario that would keep them away from the Patriots and Steelers and move them into the path of the floatsam and jetsam that is the AFC quarterback picture. To review, the best possible playoff set up for […]

Colts Authority Notebook: Putting This One Behind Us

“It’s on to Jacksonville. It’s just on to the next one. The next game is always going to be a big game because it’s the next game. I feel like we can compete with any team that they put on the field with us.” Your typical Chuck Pagano quotes, except this was rookie tackle Denzelle […]

Eyes in the Backfield: Steelers 45 Colts 10

Eight Things We Saw in Sunday’s Indianapolis-Pittsburgh Game Last week the Colts played perhaps their best half of the year. This week they played their worst. After a vaguely competitive quarter-and-a-half of play, the wheels fell of the Matt Hasselbeck bandwagon just before half time, and the whole bus careened out of control into a […]

Colts Authority Notebook: Blown Out

The towel wasn’t the only thing that was terrible tonight. After picking up a few gifts early on the Colts were not able to get anything going. The Steelers offense wasn’t phased by the Colts defense en route to a 45-10 victory over the Colts. This one felt a bit like last year. Soundly Beaten […]

Well, that escalated quickly: Steelers 45, Colts 10

The game started out hilariously, with Jacoby Jones receiving the kickoff, running it out form 8 yards deep, then promptly fumbling the ball (Jonathan Newsom knocked it free – this is a guy who should be on the field more.  Good things happen around number 91) The Colts, in great field position, did what the […]

Lord, Help Our Colts Against Pittsburgh

There are three things which our Lord hates; four thing for which he will not stand: lazy attempts at cheating, “he just winz!” quarterbacks, animal brutality, and those Polamalu Head and Shoulder’s Commercials (has there ever been a worse spokesmen? Ever?) And so we approach you this week, dear Lord, knowing that you are with […]

Charting the Colts’ Offensive Line: Week 12 vs. Buccaneers

People who write about the NFL would have you believe that the Colts ran 26 times for 27 yards in their 25-12 win over Tampa Bay on Sunday. But that’s hogwash. Three of those runs were kneeldowns by Matt Hasselbeck, for -3 yards. So they actually ran 23 times for 30 yards, a sparkling 1.3-yard […]

Why The Colts Will Score More Than The Other Guys – Steelers Edition

Hello, Colts fans. The key to football is to score more points than the other guys. I know this and you know this, but our friends in the media need something to talk about in order to justify their jobs. Earlier this summer, a certain baseball announcer acknowledged to me that yes, I was right, the […]

Colts Authority Notebook: Running into Coach Speak

There’s a stretch of nine straight years in the 2000’s where either the Colts, Patriots, or Steelers represented the AFC in the Super Bowl (10 out of 11 if you throw in that one year the Raiders went). Just a nice reminder during a season where these two AFC powerhouses are struggling to find consistent […]

Dr. Filmlove: Week 12

Week 12 has come and gone, and with their first two-score victory of the season, the Colts improved to 6-5. In a game that saw both the Colts’ and Buccaneers’ defenses bend but not break for much of the first half, it was the Colts that were able to put it together after halftime to […]

Roundtable part 1: Steelers, How do We Loathe Thee?

Please note that this is all in fun, right down to the cheesy poetry reference in the title. If you are a Steelers fan reading this, bear in mind that people joke about “hating” (or loathing, in this case) your team because they are a standard for NFL success. If people are writing pieces like this about […]

Colts Notebook: Allen Named Colts’ Man of the Year

For anyone who has been a Colts fan since 2005 (at least), you know that the Pittsburgh Steelers have been somewhat of a thorn in Indianapolis’ side. Riding on the arm of a 40-year-old quarterback and a lackluster running game, the Colts aim to improve to a 5-0 record under the control of their seemingly […]

Who to Root For: Week 13

Who to Root For ought to be amusing every week. After all nothing is more amusing that rooting for teams other than your own. There’s little of the angst and personal investment that makes normal sports fandom a socially-acceptable form of mental illness. Also, there’s nothing funnier than leaping off your coach, angrily shaking your […]

Colts Authority Notebook: A Straight Surgeon

“I’m just trying not to screw it all up. That’s all.” Matt Hasselbeck said on Sunday. I would say he’s doing a pretty good job of that. “A straight surgeon. He played a great game,” Winston said in describing Hasselbeck. Backup quarterbacks around the league have struggled mightily this year. Jimmy Clausen, Zach Mettenberger, EJ […]

Colts Authority Notebook: Standout Second Half

The Colts were able to defeat the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, overcoming a sluggish first half on their way to 6-5 on the season. The win featured another dominate second half by the Colts who are looking to keep their playoff hopes alive and well.   Passing Attack The run game was terribly ineffective at gaining […]

Recap: Colts click against Bucs, win third straight 25-12

To add some spice here, Read this piece to the theme of Gilligan’s Island. ===== Sunday aft, the Colts were home, The South was on the line, Ted Marchibroda in the crowd, And Andrew Luck sidelined. The Indy Colts did take the ball, Costanzo-less were they, A kick brought to the yard 16, Returned by […]
