Colts sign former Jaguar Aaron Morgan to a futures contract

Aaron Morgan the former Jacksonville Jaguar defensive end/outside linebacker was signed to a future contract today. Morgan was released by the Tampa Bay Buccaneers after sustaining an injury last year. I would expect morgan to come in and push some individuals on the roster for their spot. Morgan is a future deal, meaning he cannot […]

Adam Vinatieri: The greatest kicker in the NFL

After claiming his spot in the 2,000 point club and with rumors circulating that Indianapolis Colts kicker, Adam Vinatieri, could possibly be going into free agency after the current season, I decided to make a virtual toast to the esteemed kicker who is undoubtedly one of the greatest kickers in NFL history, if not the best. With Vinatieri’s birthday occurring just one day prior...

Saturday's showdown between the Indianapolis Colts and the Kansas City Chiefs is shaping up to be a defensive gem. The Chiefs are excited to have outside linebackers Justin Houston and Tamba Hali on the field together for the first time since they were undefeated, with the Colts looking to shut down their passing attack with a healthy starting secondary.

Chiefs at Colts: Andrew Luck and his ponies gallop on

Kansas City Chiefs (11-5) @ Indianapolis Colts (11-5) (Saturday January 4, 4:35 PM ET) *Line: Indianapolis -3Weather: DomeIt is hard to believe that the Kansas City Chiefs at 11-5 are a wild card team.  They are, but in name only.  However, one team, the Colts, are peaking at the perfect time, while the other, the Arrowheads are sliding south for the winter.  The Horseshoes are...

Kansas City Chiefs at Indianapolis Colts: Recipe for a KC defensive masterpiece

Kansas City Chiefs (11-5) at Indianapolis Colts (11-5)Kickoff: Saturday 4:35 PM ETLine: IND by 3Perhaps the most evenly matched of the wild card games, it's difficult to find real separation between the two on paper. Because of this, I feel the spread was arbitrarily given to the home team. While the Colts will hold some advantages playing inside in Indy, the Chiefs have traveled...

Kansas City Chiefs at Indianapolis Colts: 2013 AFC Wild Card Pick

Kansas City Chiefs (11-5) at Indianapolis Colts (11-5) This is the game I’m staying away from, simply because of how inconsistent Indianapolis has been this season. They’ve been alternating multiple game stretches where they’ve looked like a 13-3 team and a 6-10 team, with nothing really in between. Last season, they were nowhere near as good as their 11-5 record, as that was...

Colts call Jamaal Charles “public enemy No. 1″

The Colts are making no secret of their primary defensive priority in Saturday’s playoff game against the Chiefs: Stop Jamaal Charles.

We called him public enemy...

Wild Card Picks: The Saturday Games

Kansas City Chiefs at Indianapolis Colts (-2.5) My Pick:  Indianapolis Colts KC has been thriving on a good defense and mediocre offense all year. In many ways they’ve been exposed as a fraud towards the tail end of the season as they finished off having defeated only one opponent with a .500 record or better all season. Indianapolis has been putting the pieces back together of...
