Indianapolis is going to protect Andrew Luck at all costs. Even if that means shaking things up this season. After watching their new franchise quarterback hit the ground far too often in Sunday's loss at Chicago, general manager Ryan Grigson and coach Chuck Pagano wasted no time in sending a message to the Colts' offensive line: Things must improve. ''Every play matters,'' right guard Mike McGlynn said Wednesday. ''You can't have four guys playing and one guy messing up. You have to have five playing together.'' Sure, there are explanations for last weekend's rocky start. The Colts (0-1) are learning a new offense, have a new quarterback and center calling plays, and Sunday's game marked the first time that the starting five - Anthony Castonzo, Seth Olsen, Samson Satele, McGlynn and Winston Justice - played together extensively on game day.

Pick of the week: Vikings (-1.5) at Colts

While we watch every move that Andrew Luck makes in his rookie season, and endlessly compare every throw he makes to Peyton, many of the Colts deficiencies will go overlooked. Sure Luck is a great player, but much of his week one success was in garbage time against the Bears. Reggie Wayne is still as consistent as they come, and Coby Fleener is a great safety blanket, but without...

Vikings' offense looks to torment young Colts

EDEN PRAIRIE, Minn.

But Minnesota proved this truly is a new season, coming back in the...

Week 2 Fantasy Football Game Preview: Bears at Packers

Chicago Bears @ Green Bay PackersChicago:  Last week, the Bears showed their considerable maw fangs on offense by completely tearing apart Andrew Luck and the Indianapolis Colts to open the season.  The Bears served notice to the rest of the NFC North that they’re a legitimate threat to end the stranglehold the Packers have had on the division for the last 18 months or so.Now...
