Colts Power Rankings: 2011, Week 13

Each week, Coltzilla will scour the net for team rankings from football experts covering the previous week, and discuss them from the fan’s perspective.

Hammering it Out: Week 14 Predictions

It’s Week 14 and the Playoff picture about as bleak as I can remember seeing it this deep in the season. As of this week, ONLY Green Bay and San Francisco, both NFC teams, have clinched their Division. All 10 remaining Playoff spots are up for grabs. Let’s get down to business, shall we? Cleveland Browns […]

Colts at Ravens – Week 14 Preview

The Indianapolis Colts (0-12) have fallen back into the habit of losing pretty, after their comeback bid fell short by a touchdown for the second straight week. The Colts have looked good for stretches in almost each of their 12 games — the Saints game being the exception — but have yet to put together […]

Colts Game Stats: Week 13

OFFENSE QUARTERBACKS Dan Orlovsky:  71 snaps | 30 of 37 for 353 yards with 19 First Downs, 2 TD and 1 INT | Average Snap Time of 2.46 seconds with an average distance thrown of 8.51 yards per attempt * Of Orlovsky’s 37 drop back attempts, he was hit, sacked or pressured on 14 of […]

Five Plays – Analysis from the Colts 12th Regular Season Game of 2011

How very encouraging. The team showed a lot of heart to fight back from a 31-3 deficit to make it a 7 point game, and the game was ultimately decided on a last minute onside kick. Even at 31-3 down, I wasn’t disheartened. Perhaps it was my mind adjusting expectations for my eyes, but I […]

Around the League: Week 13 Results

Another week in the books, and boy, is this playoff scenario set to be a wild one! Since we missed the Philadelphia/Seattle game, there isn’t much to say. Vince Young is, well, as most Colts fans are able to point out, not really the guy you want under center. LeSean “Shady” McCoy (17 carries, 84 […]

Roster Moves & Implications

The Colts did not stay silent today after the news yesterday of both CB Jerraud Powers and his backup CB Terrence Johnson landing on IR following injuries during the Colts game against the New England Patriots.  No, instead of good news, or at least offering no more news or updates the Colts have announced that […]

After Review: Colts 24, Patriots 31

Although the outcome was predictable — in that the Colts lost the game — the final score was much closer than anyone expected. The New England Patriots have about as many defensive problems as the Colts do. In fact, the 2011 Patriots are a lot like Colts teams over the last seven years — juggernaut […]

Colts @ Patriots – Game Day Open Thread

COLT INACTIVES QB Peyton Manning (Neck) – News has been positive, but still, obviously not ready. FB Ryan Mahaffey (Concussion) – Has not passed concussion tests as of yet. TE Dallas Clark (Leg) – Clark is still rehabbing TE Brody Eldridge (Hand) – Eldridge continues to rehab DT Drake Nevis (Back) – Nevis either wasn’t […]

Hammering it Out: Week 13 Predictions

Obviously, these predictions will miss the Thursday night game. Raise your hand if you would have predicted the Seahawks to blow out the Eagles? You’re a liar. To the predictions!

Around the League: Week 12 Results

Albeit late, here are you results from Week 12’s Hammering it Out. Minnesota Vikings 14 Atlanta Falcons 24 I think we all assumed that without Adrian Peterson, the Viking offense would struggle, especially against a decent team like Atlanta. With the win this past Sunday, Atlanta moved into the 6th and final NFC Wild Card […]

Colts at Bradys – Week 13 Preview

The Indianapolis Colts (0-11) will travel to Foxboro to take on their rivals, the New England Patriots (8-3), for a Week 13 match up that is not nearly as attractive now as it was when the schedule came out. Out of the ashes of their 27-19 loss, however, comes a sense of hope for the […]

Colts Game Stats: Week 12

OFFENSE QUARTERBACKS Curtis Painter:  57 snaps | 16 of 31 for 215 yards with 8 First Downs, 1 TD and 2 INT | Average Snap Time of 2.49 seconds with an average distance thrown of 9.90 yards per attempt * Of Painter’s 31 drop back attempts, he was hit, sacked or pressured on 12 of […]

Five Plays – Analysis from the Colts 11th Regular Season Game of 2011

Against my better judgment, I decided to stay in on Sunday to watch the game – and despite my expectations, I was encouraged by what I saw. I expected an atrocious passing game and to an extent, that’s what I watched – with a couple of reasonable plays down the field to augment my flagging […]

Colts Fire Defensive Coordinator Larry Coyer

Colts fans around the world are likely celebrating in the streets this afternoon because Indianapolis has fired defensive coordinator Larry Coyer. ESPN AFC South Blogger Paul Kuharsky indicates that current linebackers coach Mike Murphy will take over the post. Interestingly enough, Murphy is one coach I have been really happy with this season. There is […]

Preparing for the Colts Future: Defensive End

No single aspect of modern day NFL defenses is more important than generating a pass rush. Putting pressure on opposing signal callers forces bad decisions, which lead to turnovers. In what has become a passing league, neutralizing the quarterback is key. Each team generates pressure in its own way, but few teams in the NFL […]

After Review: Panthers v. Colts Week 12

The good news for the Indianapolis Colts on Sunday was that it was the first game in a while where there was a sense that the team had a chance to gain their elusive first win. The bad news is that the team lost in the same way it has done in close games all […]

Week 12: Panthers @ Colts – First Half Open Thread

INACTIVES DE Mario Addison:  Addison being a new addition is an understandable addition to the inactive list.  Also seeing as Brayton, Anderson, and Hughes are healthy, a 6th DE is a tad excessive. QB Peyton Manning:  Manning continues to rehab, and still has not been cleared.  He will continue to sit out. TE Dallas Clark:  […]
