New Indianapolis Colts offensive coordinator Pep Hamilton ran the West Coast offense at Stanford, which revolves around a shorter, more efficient passing game as well as a power running attack and it appears the Colts offense will be a similar according to Mike Chappell of the Indianapolis Star.
Itll be a variation of the West Coast (with) West Coast principles, Hamilton said. The short, efficient passing game, a high completion rate.
But I enjoy watching our guys just come off the ball, the guys up front, and trying to knock the opponent back. Im a big believer of the power-running game and . . . I think that ultimately opens up your passing game, the play-action passes.
Hamilton, 38, said its premature to elaborate on how different the playbook will be in terms of scheme and terminology.
Ive got to take a look at what they were able to do this past season, he said. They were very successful as an offensive unit and as a football team overall.

Now that the 2012-13 season is over for Andrew Luck and the Indianapolis Colts, it’s now time to look into next year and the free agent pool. Let’s say, for giggles, the Colts were willing to spend serious dollars on a big name free agent.

The Colts did an amazing job going from 2 wins in 2011 to 11 in 2012, the 2nd biggest turnaround in NFL history. Even more impressive, they did it in the face of, as Chuck Pagano would call it, “circumstances,” as Head Coach Pagano had to leave 3 games into the season after being diagnosed with leukemia. “ChuckStrong” became a rallying cry for this team, which went 9-3 in...

Indianapolis Colts star rookie quarterback Andrew Luck has been selected to play in the 2013 Pro Bowl on Sunday in place of Tom Brady, who is out with an injury, the team announced on Monday.

Draft by Indianapolis, Luck led the Colts to an 11-5 record and playoff

Unlike the first two teams report cards in the AFC South, the next two teams had quite different seasons. From go almost everyone had the Houston Texans pegged to repeat as division winners.

In a season that was all about...
