The Colts Authority:
After officially hiring Bruce Arians (ex-Steelers offensive coordinator) to be the offensive coordinator for the Colts, new head coach Chuck Pagano wasted no time scalping another Steeler assistant, this time announcing Harold Goodwin as the new offensive line coach for the Colts. Goodwin was an offensive assistant for the Steelers from 2007-2011, where his job entailed assisting in coaching the offensive line and scouting the upcoming opponents. Goodwin was also an assistant offensive line coach for the Chicago Bears from 2004-2006.
While Goodwin was only an assistant OL coach, it's interesting to note that his line in Chicago improved each year with him there, ending 7th in Adjusted Line Yards, and 6th in Adjusted Sack Rate (2006). The line in Pittsburgh has been much more erratic, although they did finish third in ALY this past year. However, it's difficult to know how much input Goodwin has had over the offensive line, and any analysis of his former teams must be take...

Whoever thought that Rob Lowe, best known for his directorial debut the night before the Democratic Convention, would be the medium to announce the end of one of the greatest players in NFL history.
For Peyton Manning, the beginning of the end all started with a tweet: Rob Lowe announced on twitter roughly two weeks ago that Manning would retire, and insisted he heard it from...

According to Mike Jones of the Washington Post, a person with knowledge of the situation has confirmed that the Redskins would be interested in Colts quarterback Peyton Manning if he becomes available.
At this point there are a lot of things to consider before Manning ends up playing in another city besides Indianapolis.
“No. 1, is he going to be released? No. 2, is he going...
Peyton Manning in a Cowboys uniform?
At first thought, that sounds like a pretty good idea. Who wouldn't want a future Hall of Famer quarterbacking their team?
Then reality creeps in.
First and foremost, it will never happen because of the salary cap. While trading Tony Romo to make room for Manning would be the optimal move, either trading or outright cutting Romo carries...
INDIANAPOLIS (AP) - Jim Irsay is putting the Peyton Manning decision on hold.The Colts owner said Wednesday he will monitor Manning's recovery from Sept. 8 neck surgery over the next month and may wait until the last possible moment to determine whether to pay the quarterback a $28 million roster ...
In public, the Colts have been mostly tight lipped about Peyton Manning’s future since the season ended. Owner Jim Irsay initially insisted Manning would remain a Colt if healthy, though he’s gradually backed off that stance. Ultimately, Irsay has made no commitment either way while being as evasive about Manning’s 2012 whereabouts as humanly possible.…
Peyton Manning isn't in Super Bowl XLVI, but he's dominating it. While Indy hosts the football world, it is also coming to grips with Manning's inevitable departure, Don Banks writes.
Jim Irsay did his own politicking Monday. Instead of talking about Peyton Manning and the franchise quarterback's future in Indianapolis, the Colts owner quickly tossed the football to a real politician. "When I was asked about Peyton, I was going to say why don't you ask Mitch (Daniels) about his presidential run?
The Indianapolis Colts have already filled one coordinator position with a former Steelers assistant coach. But they are not going to fill the other that way. Linebackers coach Keith Butler has decided against interviewing for the defensive coordinator position with the Colts and is going to remain with the Steelers, the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette has learned.
Former Indianapolis Colts head coach Jim Caldwell has been hired by the Baltimore Ravens to be their quarterbacks coach. The 57-year-old Caldwell was fired by the Colts on Jan. 17 following a 2-14 season. He went 26-22 in three years with Indianapolis, including a Super Bowl appearance. After working with Indianapolis standout quarterback Peyton Manning for 10 seasons, Caldwell will turn his...
Peyton Manning called it. Back when the NFL was debating the merits of Eli Manning and whether he had what it took to win a Super Bowl, Big Brother took time out of his morning-after news conference five years ago to say Eli would be on the same stage soon.
