Found October 10, 2013 on Pro Football Spot:
As soon as word came through the Twittersphere via Adam Schefter’s finger tips that the Indianapolis Colts were sending their 2014 first round draft pick to the Cleveland Browns for second-year running back Trent Richardson, expectations exploded. After all, Richardson had somewhat underachieved in Cleveland and was now joining a great, young, up-and-coming team in the Colts led by Andrew Luck. On paper, this was a recipe destined for years of greatness.After three games, 151 rushing yards and just 3.0 yards per carry, there are already fans, analysts and fanalysts jumping ship on this move. Trust me, I understand the panic surrounding a move that was supposed to involve much higher statistics but has done anything but that thus far. However, let me present you with the most important statistic in sports: 3-0.That is the Colts record since acquiring Trent Richardson. They have outscored opponents 98-38 in those three wins. If you look beyond the obvious individual rushing stats of y...

Indianapolis Colts: 2013 Week 6 NFL Power Rankings (#8)

Last week: 14 (+6) Record: 4-1 Either the Colts are a legitimate Super Bowl contender this season or the Seahawks still struggle on the road like last season (when they lost in Miami, St. Louis, Arizona, and Detroit). I think it’s a little bit of both. The Colts are a completely different team from last year. They didn’t deserve to win 11 games last year, but I was dead wrong...

Andrew Luck, Colts Can Take Big Step in Race for AFC Supremacy With Strong Showing Against Chargers

The Indianapolis Colts are already the pseudo-champions of the NFC. They have won at San Francisco and beat visiting Seattle last week. The 49ers and Seahawks opened the season as NFC Super Bowl favorites, and Seattle still is at 11-2 to win the conference. However, the Colts are, of course, in the AFC, where the offensively unstoppable Denver Broncos reside and are 5-1 overall...

An Action Packed Week Of NFL

The Indianapolis Colts head to San Diego to take on the Chargers in this week's edition of Monday Night Football. The Colts have made a meteoric rise since the disasterous 2011 season that saw the team fall to a 2-14 record after quarterback Peyton Manning was unable to play the entire season due to a neck injury that required surgery. But all that changed at the 2012 draft when...

The Gray Area: Chargers End Colts’ Run Of “Luck”

Concluding the Week 6 NFL schedule will be the Indianapolis Colts and the San Diego Chargers on “Monday Night Football,” which looks as if like it’ll be a high scoring contest.

The Chargers (2-3), for the time being, will be trying to get things...

Indianapolis Colts at San Diego Chargers: 2013 Week 6 NFL Pick

Indianapolis Colts (4-1) at San Diego Chargers (2-3) I was dead wrong about the Colts this season. In my defense, the logic was sound. The Colts were not an 11 win team last year. 7 of their 11 wins came by a touchdown or less against a team that finished with a record of 7-9 or worse. They had a terrible offensive line and defense and finished the season 25th in DVOA, which I think...

Maybe The Colts Are For Real After All

Coming into this National Football League (NFL) season, I was one of the people who didn't think the Indianapolis Colts could build on what they did last season. For those who might have forgotten, the Colts made the playoffs with an 11-5 record after going 2-14 in 2011. After 2011, the team decided to part ways with franchise quarterback Peyton Manning and replace him with Andrew...

RB Rankings – Week Six

RB Rankings – Week Six Stevan Ridley has taken a tumble in our rankings this week and although he still possesses RB1 upside due to the absence of Shane Vereen he has a flex floor and thus comes in ranked as an RB3 this week.
