This Sunday Colts fans got their long-awaited look at Vick Ballard who started in place of the injured Donald Brown. Fans have routinely panned Donald Brown and Joe Addai before him for their lack of productivity. Ballard's approach is very powerful in contrast to the slashing style favored by both Brown and Addai. Naturally fans assumed this would lead to a better run game between...
The Colts-Jets game was frustrating to watch, but we're going through with some links anyway.
Conrad Brunner of 1070 The Fan broke the game down in his Hot Reads column, and in his earlier quick recap and box score.
It was eerily similar to the season-opening 41-21 loss in Chicago, as the Colts were plagued by shaky play from rookie quarterback Andrew Luck (two interceptions...
Well that was fun, wasn't it?
A day after the Colts worst loss of the season, it's still hard to find many positives to take from their 35-9 thrashing courtesy of the New York Jets. Not only was yesterday's loss the result of a complete team effort: poor coaching, poor play by the offense and poor play by the defense, but the Colts also walked away from the game...
Michael Marot of the Associated Press talks about the Colts' need to fix some of their more glaring problems on defense:
But the most glaring problem so far, has been the leaky run defense that has been exposed by the Jaguars and Jets and is likely to be exploited by Cleveland (1-5) again this week, if the Colts can't revise the script.
"We missed a lot of tackles...
This week the Indianapolis Colts utilized Vick Ballard quite a bit in their game versus the Jets. Vick Ballard rushed eight times for 25 yards and caught two passes for 17 yards in the Colts’ Week 6 loss to the Jets. Ballard never really had a chance because the Colts completely bailed on the run after falling behind 14-3 early in the second quarter. From there, they used a ton...

It was an ugly game, but it's time for some links anyway.
Mike Chappell, in his Colts Insider column for The Indianapolis Star, says the Colts had hoped to make the Jets one-dimensional by stopping the run and force the erattic Mark Sanchez to try to beat them. They just couldn't:
"We wanted to put the game in his hands and hopefully get him to make some mistakes...
The Indianapolis Colts waived rookie quarterback Chandler Harnish and linebacker Jerry Brown, while signing former Pittsburgh Steelers tight end Weslye Saunders. Tight end Dominique Jones was released from the practice squad. Harnish was the final pick of the draft in April, known as "Mr. Irrelevant," and has been inactive for the Colts' first five games this season...
It's been an up and down month for the Colts, but it's a good time to look back on ... well, players not really holding their own. Kyle Rapoza's article isn't about pointing fingers due to a loss, but rather, about players who should have been better this year but haven't been. The last game may have exposed their weaknesses, but (for the most part), I agree with...

As a football fan, I see this every week. And, every time, it drives me crazy. A team will have 3rd and manageable either inside the Red Zone or close to it, and what do they do? They’ll call a run into the line, and they will play for the FG. Consider this an open letter to football teams. Here’s what I’ve seen in just the last few weeks:
Jacksonville v. Indianapolis...
NEW YORK (35) d INDIANAPOLIS (9)
The Headline: Luck comes crashing back to earth as the Jets defense steps up
What to do when your team looks like it is in total disarray and the season is teetering on the edge of a cliff about to completely collapse? What about when your starting quarterback and his backup both are struggling to look like competent players on a pop warner...
Indianapolis Star October 15, 2012
Dear Indy Star,
Pardon my French, but this really pisses me off. Road Wimps? Really? I know you were just in New York, but let me fill you in on something…you’re back in Indiana. Where Hoosier Hospitality is a thing. And not just a thing…a real thing.
I’m not one of those fans who thinks you can only say or write positive things...
