Found October 20, 2012 on The Colts Authority:
    Okay, here we go again.  It's Saturday.  It's time for the Colts Authority NFL Picks Challenge, and we want to see your week 7 predictions - straight up, no point spread.  So, between the yard work, college football, and just having a great weekend, please take a moment to tell us who you think will win this week's games.  You can leave post picks in the comments, email them to marcus@coltsauthority.com, or let us know on our newly re-done Facebook page (How 'bout a "like" while you're at it?). How did everyone do last week?  I'm glad you asked.    Week 6 proved to be harder to predict...Much harder, especially for the guy writing this.  Our top reader entry went 8-6 (GizzardFanny again) with a nice guy named Bryce coming in a distant but respectable second via email.  As for the staff, we also took a step backward after week 5.  Josh Boeke held onto his lead, with Kyle, Laura, and Brent close behind, and yours truly going 5-9.    Her...

Kuharsky: Will Freeney have an ankle issue all year?

Yep, this one is just what it sounds like.  ESPN's Paul Kuharsky wonders if Dwight Freeney's ankle issues will persist all year.  There is also some of the same speculation that's followed Freeney around since the offseason: However it comes out, it’s hard to envision the Colts and Freeney coming to terms on a contract beyond this one. Wherever Freeney ends up next...

NFL Rumors: Reggie Wayne Calls Indianapolis Colts Rookie QB Andrew Luck Abnormal?

Could there be animosity brewing in the locker room of the Indianapolis Colts? Word out of Indy this week is that Reggie Wayne was asked to describe rookie quarterback Andrew Luck through his first five games of the 2012 NFL season, and Wayne did not hold back in saying that Luck was “not normal.” Of course, he means not normal in a good way. “He’s not your normal rookie...

Sports Network: Luck and Weeden Renew Their Rivalry

The Sports Network takes a look at Andrew Luck and Brandon Weeden, who got to know each other the week leading up to their teams' clash in the Fiesta Bowl.  They also give a brief recap of their only head to head meeting to date: The 23-year-old Luck, a two-time Heisman Trophy finalist, threw for 347 yards and a pair of scores with one interception in that game, but came...

Chappell: Entrusting rookie QBs can be bumpy ride, but payoff can be great

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...

1070: Colts aim to keep Browns from 'stomping mudhole dry'

Yep, that's the phrase Arians used.  Clearly, he has never watched professional wrestling.  That is all I will say.  Moving on: Conrad Brunner of 1070 The Fan talked about the Colts' struggles against the run as they prepare to face one of the league's best running backs and offensive lines.  He quoted Bruce Arians on how other teams are seeing a potential weakness...

Indianapolis Colts: Looking for Luck in Waynes World

There was never a question about whose team this was, but you still need a little Luck. With Reggie Wayne off to one of the hottest starts of his career, it’s Andrew Luck who is the top benefactor of the Wayne experience. The rookie QB out of Stanford has enjoyed three 300+ yard games this season, which is only five games young, due to the consistency of Reggie. Coming into the...

WFNY Podcast – 2012-10-20 – Talking Colts with a Colts fan

When you write sports at a website like WFNY for a while you get to know your own kinds of fans. As many of you know my house is divided from a football perspective because my wife grew up in Indianapolis. I spared you my wife being on the podcast, but my brother-in-law is very much a similar kind of football fan to what I think we cater to at WFNY, so I talked to him for about ten...

Matchup Spotlight: How will the Colts stop Trent Richardson?

The Browns are one of the league's worst teams through six weeks, but they're trending up with an upset win over Cincinnati last week.  But, with an utter lack of talent on the roster, the future success of the Browns lies in their run game and highly touted rookie running back Trent Richardson and the Cleveland running game. The rookie hasn't been particularly effective...

Chappell: Trent in Town

Most Colts fans haven't been paying too much attention to Trent Richardson; I have, because he's the only real star on either of my fantasy teams. Point is, this guy's good. Most running backs on terrible teams are pushed too far, not able to tap into their potential at all; Richardson leads the Browns in rushing and receptions. Heck, one good game at QB and he could...
