The Colts Authority:
1070 The Fan's own Conrad Brunner, who many "older" Colts fans might remember from his days with the Indy newspaper is at it again, giving us some good stories on the Colts on an otherwise slow day.
Brunner says Andrew Luck is so good already, that it's surprising when he plays poorly. There is also a telling breakdown of Lucks home and away QB ratings:
In two road games, Luck has thrown five interceptions and lost two fumbles while posting a 51.8 passer rating as the Colts have been drubbed by a combined score of 76-30. In three home games, he has six touchdowns, two picks, no lost fumbles and a rating of 85.4 as the Colts have gone 2-1.
Here's hoping Luck builds some more confidence at home this week and takes it with him on the road next time.
BEST OF MAXIM
No quarterback has come into the NFL with greater expectations than Andrew Luck. Colts Authority writer Todd Smith is so sure of his successful NFL future that he has set in motion a plan to follow every single snap of the Colts rookie signal caller, providing the most in-depth statistical breakdown of a quarterback's career ever put together.
It is the attention he is receiving...
Over at NBC Sports, Scott Kacsmar says Andrew Luck and the four other rookie quarterbacks starting in 2012 are among the most productive of all time.
Luck has already thrown for over 300 yards in three of the five games; one more would tie Peyton Manning’s rookie record. He had 280 yards at the Jets in Week 6, though it was his worst game of the season.
The Colts run a lot...
Rather than build off last week’s incredible win, the Colts and Andrew Luck had a letdown in only their second road game of the season. The Jets took the lead early in the second quarter and never looked back on their way to a 35-9 win.
It happens to teams in this phase. Even Peyton Manning lost to a much better Jets team by a 44-6 score in his second career road game.
Well, you may have guessed it - Wayne, according to Brown's writer Marty Gitlin, is going to be difficult to cover this week. He goes on to write:
Second-year cornerback Buster Skrine will therefore be greatly responsible for Wayne, who is third in the NFL with 593 receiving yards. The aggressive Skrine was burned often early in the season, but played his best game in the win...
There was never a question about whose team this was, but you still need a little Luck.
With Reggie Wayne off to one of the hottest starts of his career, it’s Andrew Luck who is the top benefactor of the Wayne experience. The rookie QB out of Stanford has enjoyed three 300+ yard games this season, which is only five games young, due to the consistency of Reggie. Coming into the...

Though Andrew Luck has shown flashes of brilliance in his first season, he knows he needs to be more consistent from week to week.
Brandon Weeden's rookie year has been marked by growing pains, but the fellow first-round pick helped his team to its first win with an impressive effort last weekend.
Luck looks to regroup from what may have been his worst game, while Weeden tries...
NEW YORK (35) d INDIANAPOLIS (9)
The Headline: Luck comes crashing back to earth as the Jets defense steps up
What to do when your team looks like it is in total disarray and the season is teetering on the edge of a cliff about to completely collapse? What about when your starting quarterback and his backup both are struggling to look like competent players on a pop warner...
The Indianapolis Colts needed to cut someone so they could sign tight end Weslye Saunders. Chandler Harnish was the victim. Harnish was drafted by the Colts with the final pick of the 2012 draft.The final pick of the draft gets dubbed the name Mr. Irrelevant and Harnish would certainly be considered that when you factor in the Colts also made the first pick of the draft, Andrew Luck...
The New York Jets needed a win in the worst way on Sunday and that's exactly what they got defeating Andrew Luck and the Colts in convincing fashion.
After dismantling the Indianapolis Colts and their rookie quarterback Andrew Luck, the Jets prepare for their bi-annual showdown against Tom Brady and the New England Patriots.Anyone who has a pulse knows the Patriot's offense is effective, to say the least. The Patriots were (and currently are) ranked in the top 10 in scoring in the past eight seasons, including 2008, when...
I can’t remember a season that saw more ups and downs than this one. Forget week to week, the Colts’ Jekyll and Hyde routine often happens in the very same game, one moment looking like world beaters, the next seemingly unable to tie their cleats. It’s been nearly remarkable.
So what’s the cause? Why have the vicissitudes of this particular season proven so fantastically...
The Indianapolis Colts (2-3) followed their emotional come-from-behind victory against Green Bay with an embarrassing 35-9 loss at the hands of the New York Jets. Despite the loss, the Colts, thanks to a weaker-than-normal conference, still find themselves in the middle of the AFC Wild Card hunt. To make the playoffs, the Colts will have to take advantage of their upcoming schedule...
Welcome to week 7 of the NFL season, or as we like to say in fantasy land, pure hell! Yes, for some unknown reason, or perhaps for one big joke, the NFL has decided to play with our minds and put a whopping 6 teams on a bye.
Indianapolis Star October 15, 2012
Dear Indy Star,
Pardon my French, but this really pisses me off. Road Wimps? Really? I know you were just in New York, but let me fill you in on something…you’re back in Indiana. Where Hoosier Hospitality is a thing. And not just a thing…a real thing.
I’m not one of those fans who thinks you can only say or write positive things...
