There are a lot of factors that determine who goes where on a list like this, especially in 2012, a year that will go down in infamy. Power rankings can't predict how injuries will affect the next game, but it can take into account how a team has dealt with the many unpredictable situations it has faced and what that could mean against other teams' unpredictable situations.Each game is another opportunity to rise above, or crumble under the pressure. Every team has to deal with adversity, as well as strokes of pure luck. And, of course, the ability to overcome any situation starts with the coaches.Some teams are in disarray, and we need look no further than the head coach; take the Jets as a perfect example. This team should be fighting for the AFC East title every year. Instead, they have become a freak show, thanks, in part, to their coach, Rex Ryan. He goes, and the team suddenly becomes a contender.So let's get down to business. With the playoffs fast approaching, I ...
BEST OF MAXIM
The Indianapolis Colts have seemingly been blessed. Or, if you prefer, Luck-y.
See what I did there?
In all seriousness though, if you could show me one single person – press or fan – who thought the Colts would be 8-4 with a decent chance at 11 wins in the pre-season, then I could show you a big fat liar. There’s no way anyone, even the most diehard fan (of which I unshamefully...
The struggles of the Bears, Packers, Giants, 49ers and Ravens in recent weeks allows the Indianapolis Colts to make a legitimate push into the top 10. I remain skeptical of Indy’s true chances when January roles around (the 59-24 drubbing in New England is an indicator of how far they are behind the truly top shelf teams in the league) and their -41 point differential leaves much...
Hey! My first Andrew Luck headline pun! But truly, the change in the fortunes of the Indianapolis Colts has widely been attributed to rookie quarterback Andrew Luck, which is fine, because he has been very good so far. I think, however, that this ignores the overall success of the Colts as a team, and doesn’t reflect exactly how bad the quarterback situation was last season.
The Detroit Lions let another victory slip through their fingers last Sunday when Indianapolis Colts QB Andrew Luck hit Donnie Avery for a last-second, game-winning touchdown. Continue reading →
Honestly, there are many ways that I could go with this post but I think I'll let the below picture do most of the talking.
Recently, Indianapolis Colts wide receiver Reggie Wayne, owner Jim Irsay, and Andrew Luck got a chance to hang out with the cast of the hit NBC show, "Parks and Recreation".
Below is the photo:
Clearly, Ron Swanson didn't get...
Tennessee Titans (4-8) vs Indianapolis Colts (8-4)
The Titans travel to Indianapolis with revenge on their mind from an overtime thriller with the Colts, in what started Andrew Luck’s run of brilliance over the course of the last few weeks. If you recall, Luck executed a swing pass to fellow rookie Vic Ballard in overtime, who torpedoed his way through tackles to catch the pylon...
It’s official, the Andrew Luck hype mobile is going off the rails like a crazy train.
Luck has been impressive. And Luck can make throws on a football field that even Tom Brady and Peyton Manning would have a hard time completing. But, that does not automatically put him in their category, and that certainly does not make him an MVP candidate, as Adam Schein — who has a vote...
The Colts selected Andrew Luck who is considered by all experts to be the heir apparent to Peyton Manning. If Luck proves to be anything close what Manning was to the Colts over his reign, then Jim Irsay has got to be one of the luckiest new owners in the history of the NFL. No one at this point can look at the history of the Colts over the Irsay Era and not think that a curse or...
It has been a big year in Texas high school quarterback lore.
The NFL season began in September, the state of Texas had more natives per capita under center across the league than any other comparably sized region. The top two picks in the draft, Andrew Luck and Robert Griffin III, were both former Texas high school quarterbacks. Another former Texas high school quarterback, Johnny...
It's time for another installment of my pre-Colts game Q&A with Nate Dunlevy. This is our fifth season doing this, and in that time, Nate has moved from his own site 18 to 88 to bigger and better things as Lead Writer for Bleacher Report at their AFC South blog. He's also written two books, including Blue Blood, a history of the Colts in Indianapolis, and Invincible,...
(Eds: Updates. With AP Photos.) By MICHAEL MAROT AP Sports Writer Andrew Luck is getting a crash course in rematch etiquette.
The man who seemingly did it all in college never played the same team twice in one season until he jumped to the NFL. On Sunday, he'll get a second chance at playing a team twice when Tennessee visits Lucas Oil Stadium.
A knack for late-game heroics and the ability to win the close ones have helped put the Indianapolis Colts in good position to return to the playoffs.
The Colts needed overtime to win at Tennessee earlier this season, but hope for an easier time Sunday when they try for a fifth consecutive home victory over the reeling Titans.
Paced by rookie Andrew Luck, Indianapolis (8-4) executed...

The Colts are almost certainly in the playoff party. They hold a game lead...
