We all know Trent Richardson has been embarrassingly bad this season, but the Indianapolis Colts continue to insist that they're happy with their decision to trade a first-round pick for Richardson earlier this year.  That's not surprising, because...well, what would you expect them to say at this junction? Richardson is still on the roster and they can't admit defeat this early.  But when you look at the numbers, it's hard to believe Chuck Pagano, Ryan Grigson and co. on that.  This season, Richardson and Maurice Jones-Drew are the league's only two backs with over 125 carries but fewer than 3.0 yards per attempt. He's scored just two touchdowns on 146 touches and has zero runs of 20 yards or more -- something 85 offensive players have done at least once this season.  Buried in the Jaguars' completely inept offense, Jones-Drew has still managed to score four touchdowns, but his longest run is only 17 yards. However, that's still longer than ...

Trent Richardson believes he is playing well

Running back Trent Richardson is struggling in Indianapolis; it’s not a secret. Trading Richardson away is making Cleveland look smarter as the weeks continue to pass. Although, Trent Richardson believes he is playing well. “I’m not frustrated at all because I think I’ve been playing good,” Richardson said. “If you turn on the film, I don’t have any missed assignments...

Colts sign former Florida Gator track star Chris Rainey

The Indianapolis Colts signed free agent running back Chris Rainey to the active roster today. This is a surprise move because Rainey has not been in football for quite some time. I guess you could say it is his second chance. Rainey, 5-9, 180 pounds, was originally selected by the Pittsburgh Steelers in the fifth […]

Trent Richardson believes he has been 'playing good'

Trent Richardson has not provided any type of spark for the Indianapolis Colts since he was acquired in a trade from the Cleveland Browns two months ago. He is averaging just 2.8 yards per carry since the deal was made and has been outplayed by Donald Brown. Despite that, Richardson’s confidence remains high. In fact, […]

Colts RB Richardson defends his performance

In Trent Richardson's ideal world, he'd be running through defenses and threatening records the way he did at the University of Alabama. But in reality, the Indianapolis Colts running back has been struggling to gain traction as the team tries to breathe life into its running game. Richardson likely isn't living up to his own — or his team's —expectations. His...

Ichabod Crane Never Needs a Bath: Early Week 11 Fantasy Football Pickups

So how about that Playstation 4? I’ve had mine on preorder for like 5 years. Seriously, I emailed Amazon and just told them that I don’t care when it comes out or how much it costs, I’m getting one. And then I received a return email telling me to please stop wasting their time with nonsense emails. Which I of course ignored like Fox’s “Sleepy...

Colts cut Griff Whalen, promote Mr. Irrelevant

The Colts cut from perhaps their thinnest position to get more Irrelevant.

Report: Erik Walden suspended one game for head-butt

Indianapolis Colts linebacker Erik Walden has been suspended one game by the NFL for head butting Titans’ Delanie Walker last Thursday, FOXSports’ Jay Glazer reported. Walden ripped off Walker’s helmet and tossed it downfield.  When Walker confronted Walden, Walden head-butted Walker in the face when he wasn’t wearing a helmet. “That’s dirty play, there is no need...

Can Colts surpass 2012's win total of 11?

Six games remaining and a three-game lead in the AFC South. That’s where things stand for the Indianapolis Colts. They should win the division for the first time since 2010 unless they completely collapse down the stretch. And even then, they still may win it when you think about the rest of the teams in the division. I predicted that the Colts would go 10-6 when the season...

Dear Colts, Can we PLEASE have 60 minutes of good football?

Ok. They got the divisional win over the Titans in Week 11, but that doesn’t mean I have to feel all that great about it. I’ve been saying all season that this team doesn’t have an identity. At this point the only identity I can find that is for certain is that of a team that can pull off come from behind wins. That’s fine and all. It shows toughness and the resolve to not...
