Found November 12, 2012 on The Colts Authority:
Before the season started both Nate and I gave Greg Cowan a hard time about his rather optimistic prediction on the 2012 campaign. Greg had jokingly predicted the playoffs, doing his best Jim Mora voice and we blew it off as another crazy Canadian rampage, fueled by fatback and Tim Horton's coffee.  Who's laughing now? After a complete drubbing of the Jaguars the Colts are now in the driver's seat for the AFC wild card--a feat only Jim Irsay and Greg Cowan would have predicted when they jettisoned anyone who wore a horseshoe in 2011. With an incredibly soft schedule ahead aside from the Patriots and two contests against the Texans it appears that this may not back into the playoffs but possibly march into them instead with head held high. Last week many in the media played off this possibility citing the AFC's overall weakness and the Colts' buttery schedule. They were right on both counts but something new has emerged from that sketchy situation that others i...

Dunlevy: Luck and Colts, Actually Good?

At 6-3, the Colts aren't as bad as we expected. Still, Nate Dunlevy writes, whether they're a good team or not doesn't matter: they'll be making the playoffs this year. For further proof, ask the rest of the AFC. Remember Miami, a wildcard team two weeks ago? With losses to the Colts and Titans, they're now 4-5, and almost guaranteed an extended off-season. ...

Kuharsky: Powers on IR for 3rd Consecutive Year

Colts Authority Daily Links 11-12-12 Yes, the news broke earlier today.  Paul Kuharsky of ESPN.com has a quick write-up on Jerraud Powers' latest season-ending injury.  I find Powers to be one of the most thoughtful guys in the division, so I will selfishly miss being able to look for him in the Colts locker room when I cover them. His rookie contract is also expiring...

Bill Belichick on Andrew Luck: “He’s been impressive”

Bill Belichick must be feeling a little deja vu going on right now as the New England Patriots face the 6-3 Indianapolis Colts this Sunday. For years Belichick watched the Colts under Peyton Manning, but with Manning’s departure, a new king has arisen. Andrew Luck was supposed to be good, just not this early. His poise, ability to read defenses, and his athletic ability are all...

PNC Sounds of the Game: Colts.com's Dramatic Video Recap of this Week's Win

Colts Authority Daily Links, 11-12-12 Okay, if you haven't watched the PNC Sounds of the Game series on Colts.com, you, my friend, are missing out.  The Colts have chosen to publish these with nice, clear video quality.  They're very well-done and fun to watch.  While it's not exactly news that Indy shellacked the Jaguars, this video is likely more enjoyable than...

Kuharsky: Colts Fans Should Root For Houston

Last night, along with most Colts fans who realize that they might catch Houston this year, I was hoping for a Chicago victory. The Bears did prove that one needs at least some semblance of an offense to win a game, but their loss meant that, at 8-1, Houston is probably uncatchable. Paul Kuharsky goes a step further by saying we should actually be cheering for Houston, for a simple...

Colts raise $$$ for leukemia research

The Indianapolis Colts used some down time Saturday night to support coach Chuck Pagano and raise money for the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society of Indiana. Just days after nearly three dozen players, including rookie quarterback Andrew Luck, shaved their heads to support Pagano in his battle against a form of leukemia, coach Bruce Arians, other team employees and some players showed...
