Key Additions QB Matt Hasselbeck, WR Darrius Heyward-bey, OT Gosder Cherilus, G Donald Thomas, DE/DT Ricky Jean-Francois, NT Aubrayo Franklin, DE/OLB Erik Walden, ILB Kelvin Sheppard, CB Greg Toler, S LaRon Landry, DE/OLB Bjoern Werner (draft), G Hugh Thornton (draft), C Khaled Holmes (draft) Key Losses QB Drew Stanton, WR Donnie Avery, WR Austin Collie, OT Winston Justice, C A.Q. Shipley, DE Clifton Geathers, DT Antonio Johnson, DE/OLB Dwight Freeney, DE/OLB Jerry Hughes, CB Jerraud Powers, S Tom Zbikowski Team Analysis Andrew Luck certainly lived up to his billing last season, turning the 2-14 Colts into a playoff caliper team. However, they're defense will continue to keep them from being anything more than a Wild Card contender in my opinion. I think something would have to go very wrong with the Texans for Indy to take the division. The offense is what will win games for the Colts, especially now that the running game will be a bit more st...

T.Y. Hilton on the cusp of breakout season

Indianapolis Colts Andrew Luck is a star (don’t worry this is still about Hilton) – I just wanted to gush over the rookie phenom a little bit. Andrew Luck doesn’t get enough credit; he took the worst team in the league (2-14 in 2012) to 11-5 and into the playoffs, and 12-year pro Reggie Wayne already calls Luck the team’s leader – quite the praise from the veteran. Luck...

Colts owner Jim Irsay tries to justify price of preseason tickets on Twitter

NFL season ticket holders have long complained about the rip-off job they perceive is being pulled on them by teams when they have to pay full price for meaningless — and often profoundly boring — preseason games.

Indianapolis Colts season preview RB/LB

The running game is a big question mark for the Indianapolis Colts this season. Everyone is excited about Andrew Luck, Reggie Wayne and the passing game, but the ground attack elicits questions. Donald Brown can’t stay healthy, and hasn’t lived up to first round draft pick status. Vick Ballard has been a steal of a fifth round pick. Indianapolis Colts RB Ballard led the team...

2013 Fantasy Football Minute: AFC South Breakout Player

My 2013 fantasy football breakout star coming out of the AFC South is Indianapolis Colts' wide receiver, T.Y. Hilton. Other nominees considered were Texans' rookie wide receiver, DeAndre Hopkins, and the Titans' Kendall Wright. Some fantasy football owners could be critical of the pick because you could make the argument that Hilton broke out last season. The speedy...

Colts' Bradshaw 'never once felt' his Giants career was ending

Ahmad Bradshaw won’t be playing Sunday at MetLife Stadium but just standing on the opposite sideline from the Giants is going to be a jolt.

2013 Indianapolis Colts season preview: OL, DL

The Indianapolis Colts went from from a base 4-3 to a 3-4 on their way to improving by nine wins. Going from 2-14 to 11-5 was nothing short of incredible, even with pieces that didn’t quite fit. They called their D a “hybrid” of the 3-4 and 4-3 because they weren’t quite all there yet. And now only players who fit a 3-4 will stay in Indy. Even Dwight Freeney, as successful...

2013 Indianapolis Colts Preview

Regression! Regression! I’m sorry, I’m getting ahead of myself. Let me explain. I hated the 2012 Colts. Not because of Andrew Luck (sorely overrated, but we’ll get to that), Chuck Pagano (great story, but a liability in Week 17 and in the playoffs) or their horribly ill-conceived 3-4 defense considering their roster full of Cover-2 players. No, what bothered me about the Colts...
