Found December 26, 2011 on Coltzilla:
The Colts are beginning to display a defensive trend. Since coordinator Larry Coyer was fired and replaced by former linebackers coach Mike Murphy, the Colts have gotten back to basics. Simple Cover-2 zone assignments have been complimented by more man-coverage from the cornerbacks, who have started to win their match-ups. The results speak volumes. For [...]

Recap of the Bill Polian Show: December 26, 2011

Each week, Colts Vice Chairman Bill Polian holds his weekly radio show. Host Bob Lamey, the Voice of the Indianapolis Colts, asks questions and takes calls from listeners to pick the mind of the long-time Colts executive. Even though the Colts won their second game in a row in exciting fashion over division rival Houston, [...]

Ryan: Jets won't pursue Manning

Rex likes to talk.  Today he claims Sanchez is his guy and even though he loves Peyton Manning nearly as much as his wife's feet, the Jets won't inquire about him in the offseason: "Peyton Manning.... I’ve said from Day One that I think he’s the best quarterback in the National Football League," Ryan added. "I even put him over Tom Brady.  So, of course...

Caldwell: No divisional sweep

Jim Caldwell doesn't like the idea of getting swept by a divisional opponent despite any draft implications: “I do not [worry about the draft]. My job is to win ball games, plain and simple,” the Indianapolis coach said. “[Being swept by a division opponent] hasn’t happened around here in a long time, and I think it is something that they’ve been really focused on...

Polian on draft needs

There's little honesty this time of year about the upcoming draft.  Bill Polian essentially tells us every position except linebacker, punter, kicker and placeholder are up for consideration: “They’re players who make plays on third downs,” the Colts vice chairman said on his radio show. “Quarterback, defensive end, those are the two hardest to find. Cornerback, wide...

A Colts Fan Apologizes

This landed in my inbox last week and it cracked me up. Enjoy. An Open Letter to Colts NationThere’s no getting around it.It’s my fault.Clearly, indisputably, my fault.Forget Manning’s neck injury.  Forget the subsequent revolving door at QB.  Forget the injuries to Dallas Clark, Joe Addai, Drake Nevis, Melvin Bullitt, Gary Brackett, et al.  Forget allowing Clint Session...

The Case Against Bill Polian

I love a good debate. I love when there are points to be made on both sides, and the dialogue is intense. This season, one of the most hotly debated topics among Colts writers (though not Colts fans) is whether or not Bill and Chris Polian should be brought back in 2012. I've made my position clear: firing them would be the biggest mistake the Colts could make. However, despite...

Colts don't Suck for Luck

The Colts win again and they are suddenly riding a 2-game winning streak. A team that was once considered to be the worst team ever, now, can't even be considered the worst team this season, and does that jeopardize their future? A lot of people assumed that they were sucking to get Andrew Luck, the likely #1 pick in the draft next year, and it seemed like a good idea with Peyton...

Season finale has a lot of implications

It's the next game, and the last game, in a season to forget for the Indianapolis Colts. That doesn't mean there's nothing for the 2-13 Colts to play for Sunday at Jacksonville, or no significant compensation waiting at the finish line.
