Found October 27, 2012 on
To find out more about what the 2012 Indianapolis Colts look like, I went through my normal practice of watching the next opponent's previous game. Coming off their bye, the Colts beat the Cleveland Browns at home last week by a final score of 17-13 to improve their record to 3-3 on the year. Andrew Luck scored twice on the ground in the first half, and the defense held the Browns after they cut the deficit to 14-13 early in the second half.
After the jump, what I saw from the Colts that game:
1. Ok, this isn't related to the game, but four of the Colts' first six games have been at home. They're 3-1 at home. They're 0-2 on the road, with both losses not close. It's possible the Colts are a bad road team. It's also possible they're 0-2 on the road because they played the Bears, a pretty good team, and just had a bad game against the Jets.
2. Vick Ballard got most of the carries last week. He's an okay between the ta...

Indianapolis Colts’ rookie running back Vick Ballard scored a spectacular touchdown in overtime to give the Colts a 19-13 win over the Tennessee Titans. Andrew Luck found Vick out of the backfield for a 16-yard touchdown, but the incredible part was when Ballard took flight from the three-yard line and turned his body upside-down to somehow get the ball across the plane of the...
Eric Smith of Bleacher Report has some midseason player evaluations as well as some very high opinions of our Indianapolis Colts, which he believes should be 4-2 if not 5-1 right now. He is also very impressed with former CFL linebacker Jerrell Freeman, calling him one of the five best players on the team:

Phil Richards of The Indianapolis Star has a great article today on Gary Brackett, who, according to Richards, has seen some interest from other teams, but it still recovering from his surgery. If you're not familiar with Brackett's story, I would recommend finding some time to learn about him. He's a fascinating person both on and off the football field. Here'...
Bob Kravitz chooses a side in the debate: Andrew Luck or Robert Griffin III? Basically, Clark Kent or Bruce Wayne? Kent, the down-to-earth fella' with the straight-edge persona and studious appearance. Wayne, the flashy news piece with a cool public image. Both are handy in a pinch, something the Colts and Redskins are finding out about Luck and RG3. The two teams combined for...

Colts rookie tight end Coby Fleener left Sunday's game with a shoulder injury. His return is questionable.Fantasy Spin:Fleener caught just two passes for 24 yards in the first half.
NASHVILLE, Tenn. -- This is why the Indianapolis Colts drafted Andrew Luck with the top overall pick in April. Stymied most of the day by the Tennessee Titans' normally pliable defense, Luck walked off the field Sunday when Vick Ballard took his screen pass 16 yards -- leaping high into the air to crack the goal line's plane with the ball -- with 10:11 left in overtime...
