Bill Belichick must be feeling a little deja vu going on right now as the New England Patriots face the 6-3 Indianapolis Colts this Sunday. For years Belichick watched the Colts under Peyton Manning, but with Manning’s departure, a new king has arisen. Andrew Luck was supposed to be good, just not this early. His poise, ability to read defenses, and his athletic ability are all the ingredients that trouble the young Patriots defense. Belichick spoke to WEEI in Boston with The Big Show in his weekly appearance.
“He’s been impressive. Certainly he’s an outstanding athlete. He can run, he’s got real good speed to get out of trouble and buy time in the pocket. He’s made a lot of yards on converted third downs. … I think he sees the field well — has good vision, good poise. … I’ve certainly been impressed watching him.”
“I don’t think there’s a lot of difference between him, physically, and a guy like Cam Newton, just as far as being able to run, and be strong and fast and have a good arm. He seems to read coverages well. He’s got a great receiver, obviously, in Reggie Wayne. … The Colts have done a great job. They’ve turned that program around.”

Yes, the news broke earlier today. Paul Kuharsky of ESPN.com has a quick write-up on Jerraud Powers' latest season-ending injury.
I find Powers to be one of the most thoughtful guys in the division, so I will selfishly miss being able to look for him in the Colts locker room when I cover them. His rookie contract is also expiring...

Okay, if you haven't watched the PNC Sounds of the Game series on Colts.com, you, my friend, are missing out. The Colts have chosen to publish these with nice, clear video quality. They're very well-done and fun to watch. While it's not exactly news that Indy shellacked the Jaguars, this video is likely more enjoyable than...
Last night, along with most Colts fans who realize that they might catch Houston this year, I was hoping for a Chicago victory. The Bears did prove that one needs at least some semblance of an offense to win a game, but their loss meant that, at 8-1, Houston is probably uncatchable. Paul Kuharsky goes a step further by saying we should actually be cheering for Houston, for a simple...
Ryan Grigson came to Indianapolis with a plan to rebuild the Colts.
A little more than eight months after cutting Peyton Manning, Indy (6-3) is in an improbable battle to make the playoffs. One of the reasons has been Grigson's penchant for finding talent.
The first-year general manager has made all the right moves: drafting Andrew Luck, surrounding him with young teammates...
The Indianapolis Colts have surprised everyone by getting off to a 6-3 start even though their head coach Chuck Pagano has missed games to fight Leukemia. Thankfully Pagano’s Leukemia is in remission, and the team has rallied around him.To keep the momentum going and to try and raise more money for Leukemia research and the Chuckstrong charity, one of the Colts Cheerleaders,...
The Indianapolis Colts mascot challenged a cheerleader to shave her head if he could raise $10,000 for cancer research.
One cheerleader has taken up the challenge, Megan M. If the money is raised she will join the likes of thirty-plus players on the team who have already shaved their heads.
“@BlueColtsMascot count me in! I’ll do it I’m #ColtStrong” tweeted Megan on Sunday...
You'd think with Peyton Manning in Denver the once-fierce Colts-Patriots rivalry would be diminished. No such "Luck." Now that Indianapolis has its new franchise quarterback -- rookie Andrew Luck, the overall No. 1 pick in this year's draft -- it's become quite clear this rivalry could remain intense. Through nine games, Luck has looked incredibly poised...

Before the season started both Nate and I gave Greg Cowan a hard time about his rather optimistic prediction on the 2012 campaign. Greg had jokingly predicted the playoffs, doing his best Jim Mora voice and we blew it off as another crazy Canadian rampage, fueled by fatback and Tim Horton's coffee.
Who's laughing now?
After a complete drubbing of the Jaguars the Colts...
Every great quarterback needs a great receiver to rely on during their early development. Joe Montana and Steve Young had Jerry Rice, Troy Aikman had Michael Irving and Peyton Manning had Marvin Harrison. And those are just a few of the most extreme cases throughout NFL history.
Now, the onus of that argument turns to Indianapolis, where the development of Andrew Luck takes center...
As Andrew Luck leads the Indianapolis Colts closer to a playoff berth this season, he also continues a march toward Rookie of the Year. As of this writing, the Colts were 6-3 and in 2nd place in the AFC South, and had won four in a row. Luck was leading the way with a [...]
