The Colts Authority:
CBSSports.com and Wire Reports recapped the Colts' mixed-feeling-inducing win over the Browns yesterday. It looks like they came out of it with a much more positive impression of our Colts:
The victory came in typical Pagano style.
Indy (3-3) controlled the ball for more than 35 minutes, ran for a season-high 148 yards, held Cleveland to 55 yards on the ground, and finished with two stops in Colts territory before finally forcing the last man with the ball out of bounds on the final play.
Many local fans have expressed concern over how difficult it was for the team to put away the lowly Browns, not to mention that the defensive struggle came without the home team forcing a single sack or turnover (the fumble on the final play notwithstanding). But the national media sees reason to garner hope from this ugly, maybe even hideous win. Thanks, national media. Go Colts.

It looks a little early to say, but the Associated Press just reported that the 2012 Indianapolis Colts have a run game. Shocking, right? Still, I'm thinking it must be true. 147 yards on Sunday, next to 186 passing yards, with a backup running back. In perspective, the Colts rushed for over 100 yards five times last year, and have already rushed for 100+ three times in six...
Andrew Luck looked good this season, he has won some games people thought they should have lost. The Colts take on the Cleveland Browns today and the Browns have only one win on the season, can Andrew Luck beat a team that has struggled to find wins? The Colts defense is going to have to watch for the deep ball coming off the arm of Brandon Weeden. The Browns wide receiver Josh Gordon...

Good old Mike Chappell of The Indianapolis Star delves into the difficulties and benefits of entrusting the offense to a rookie quarterback.
While his completion percentage seems out of character, that's not necessarily the case. In his final two seasons at Stanford, Luck completed 70.7 and 71.3 percent of his passes. But he was a 56.3 passer in his first year as a starter...
When he took charge of a Bills team that had won only four times over their previous two seasons, Bill Polian was confident they would one day achieve success.
His dreams quickly became reality.
