Another week, another Colts loss. Shrug. Surprising to no one, there were 15 other games in which a team also lost, so there’s that. On to the results! Cleveland Browns 3 Pittsburgh Steelers 14 Just about as predicted, Cleveland couldn’t move the ball against a tough Steelers defense. Surprisingly, Pittsburgh struggled to move the ball […]
Not much to say this week, on the back of that defeat. Simply out-muscled by one of the better teams in the NFL away from home, we weren’t in the game at any stage. 24-10 makes it sound a lot closer than it was, to be frank. On offense, the Colts could never get to […]
If you’re like any of the other dozens of Colts fans I know, you’ve had the conversation about the looming Manning-Luck dilemma, which really doesn’t feel like a dilemma at all. For those of you looking for Colts only draft coverage, this isn’t your article. If you’d like to read about how I think the […]
The highs and lows for an Indianapolis Colts team that has dropped thirteen straight games in 2011 have taken a toll on its fan base, which consists largely of folks who are simply looking forward to more summer excitement and intrigue than has surrounded their record-setting franchise since the 1998 NFL Draft — coincidentally thirteen […]
Sorry we’re late! Colts – 0, Ravens – 10, here’s your open thread.
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.
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 […]
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 […]
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 […]
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 […]
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 […]
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 […]
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 […]
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 […]
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!
