Guest Post: Farewell Caldwell?

Editor's Note: This post brought to you by occasional Coltsider contributor Stephen Reed. Thanks to him once again.  First off, anyone who says they predicted the Colts would be heading into the bye week winless is lying. No one saw this coming. No one. However, the Colts are indeed 0-10 and hold a 2 game […]

What to do with the Number One Pick?

With the NFL regular season slowly winding down, it looks like the Colts are in the driver's seat for the #1 pick. With the exclusive rights to the Andrew Luck lottery, the Colts will hear their fair share of trade offers. I truthfully have no idea what the Colts are going to do with the pick, but […]

Defining Tebow: Winner or Fluke?

No, this isn't about the Colts. And yes, you've probably heard enough about Tim Tebow to last a lifetime. But, the Colts had a bye week, and Tebow is an intriguing character. So, continue if you'd like, move along if you'd rather gouge your eyes out than hear any more on Tim Tebow. Before I […]

Tale of the Tape: Anthony Castonzo vs. the Jaguars

Anthony Castonzo was the first pick by the Colts in the 2011 NFL Draft, and looked to be the perfect pick for the Colts at #24 overall. After a promising first three games, Castonzo was hurt versus the Buccaneers, and missed four more games. Since coming back, Castonzo hasn't seemed the same, and as the […]

Suggestions for Jaguars Film Review?

Once again, I’m going to be doing a film review of the Jaguars game for tomorrow. I was late last week, but I’m not quite as busy this week, so it should be up Thursday, with the next Judging the Draft piece up tomorrow. Some possible ideas are: Taking a detailed look at the cornerbacks, […]

Stew Blake Joining Stampede Blue

Well, friends, it has been an unbelievable couple months here at Coltsider despite the dreadful 2011-12 season we've had to suffer through with our beloved team. Fortunately, my time here has worked out in the best way possible and because of this smooth sailing, I was lucky enough to use my opportunity as Editor here […]

Don’t Be Surprised

This game wasn't bad. Ok, yes, losing to the Jaguars is embarrassing. The team is being led by one of the worst starting quarterbacks I've seen in a long time in Blaine Gabbert. But, not to be out done, Curtis Painter had an even worse day than the rookie, throwing for just 94 yards on 13 […]

Colts Lose to Jaguars 17-3

Quarterback play is really important in the NFL. But the Colts don't have a legitimate quarterback. Curtis Painter threw for a measly 94 yards, and gave up the ball twice with interceptions before being replaced by Dan Orlovsky. Painter should have had another pick, but it was offset by a 12 men-the-field penalty. The Colts […]

Roster Update: Blair White to IR, Darren Evans to Active Roster

The Colts placed WR Blair White, who has suffered from nagging injuries all year, on the injured reserve today, replacing him with hometown RB Darren Evans.  Impact for the upcoming games? Joseph Addai likely won't play on Sunday, and may not be ready for a while. As for White, the Colts my be sticking with […]

Tale of the Tape: The Falcons and Long Third Downs

Yeah, so the film review is a little late this week. Sue me. Per a reader's (paulcareyjr) request, the subject for this week's film review is going to be third downs. Specifically, long third downs (six or more yards) will be the focus of the study. First, we'll be looking at the Colts' offense on […]

Weekly Matchup Preview: Indianapolis Colts vs. Jacksonville Jaguars

This is the tenth of 16 articles that I will post throughout the season, previewing the Colts’ upcoming matchup.  I’ll attempt to analyze some strengths and weaknesses of both teams, a few areas to focus on, and a couple of key individual matchups.  -Kyle is sick this week, so I'll be doing the Weekly Matchup […]

Colts Roster Moves: Dan Muir Cut, Mike McNeill Added to Roster

The Colts roster moves today: Signed to active roster: CB Morgan Trent, TE Anthony Hill, and TE Mike McNeill Added to the practice squad: QB Dan LeFevour Cut/Waived: DT Dan Muir and CB Prince Miller Added to IR: OG Seth Olsen Prince Miller was signed just last week, but didn't make the active roster. Muir, […]

2012 Mock Draft: Colts Get Lucky

[/caption] The NFL Regular Season is about half-way over and the Colts are currently the worst team in the NFL, hosting a 0-9 overall record. Assuming that our season will progress as horribly as it has so far, the Colts will most likely have the first overall pick the 2012 NFL Draft. This would be […]

Ideas for Tape Review?

As we head into the film review later this week, I'd love some suggestions for what I should look at regarding last Sunday's game against the Falcons. I was planning on focusing on the secondary, but there are other options too, like "What the heck is going on with Curtis Painter?" Or, how was the […]

Bad Journalism: Bob Kravitz is Misguided

After reading Bob Kravitz’ sensationalist article yesterday, I was planning on writing a full critique of the piece this morning. In short, the piece uses unnamed (biased) sources, makes wild assumptions, and makes logical argument that have no validity. However, after reading the pieces by Nate Dunlevy of 18to88 and Greg Cowan of Coltzilla, I’ve […]

Colts’ Offense Can’t Get on Scoreboard, Lose to Falcons 31-7

Another game, another lopsided loss. Welcome to the 2011 Colts' season. While the entire Colts' team was once again under-performing, the offense was especially bad, turning it over on the first two drives (leading to two touchdowns) and putting the Colts in a big hole early. That hole was one that this team is not […]

Manning: “It’s a One-Year Deal with a Four-Year Extension”

Both Jim Irsay and Peyton Manning addressed the media this week (highlighted by Stew here) to discuss Manning's injury and the idea of him playing football again.  It sounds like Peyton may indeed play again in 2011, and it also sounds like he may never play football again.  Depending on whose comments you've read and […]
