The Colts Authority:
The Colts recently released Gary Brackett, but Colts fans still love him.
The former team captain and middle linebacker has written a book about his inspirational and amazing lifestory.
"Winning" tells the tale of Bracketts' amazing rise from walk-on at Rutgers to captain of the Super Bowl champions.
I caught up with Gary at Black Dog Books.

A radio report on Monday stated that the Indianapolis Colts are seriously considering using the No. 1 pick in the upcoming NFL draft on Baylor's Robert Griffin III instead of Stanford's Andrew Luck.
THANKS BUT NO THANKS
Indianapolis Colts owner Jim Irsay tweeted Tuesday morning that the team's request to hold a private workout for Robert Griffin III has been declined by the quarterback's agent.
As much disdain that Donald Brown as received in the past three years, I am of the firm opinion that he does not deserve a large portion of it. Fans have been down on Brown ever since his draft day, where running back wasn't a huge need, and other play-makers were in position to picked (such as Hakeem Nicks). Brown is often seen by Colts fans as a player who is weak, can'...

ESPN’s Camp Gruden, where former coach Jon Gruden puts the top collegiate QB prospects through the ringer prior to each year’s draft, has become something of an annual tradition. We all remember last year when Cam Newton couldn’t name a single play from his Auburn playbook, which may have scared some people off from the eventual offensive...
This won’t be the last report we hear from somoene that is apparently, “in the know.” But ESPN personality, and former Washingotn Post columnist Michael Wilbon was on the air with PTI colleague Tony Kornheiser and informed him that people that he has spoken with within the Indianapolis Colts organization have led him to believe that there is a real possiblity that the Heisman...
ESPN’s Michael Wilbon made an appearance on The Tony Kornheiser Show on ESPN 980 in Washington DC, per Joe Buscaglia of WGR 550.
Wilbon told Kornheiser that he’s spoken with some people who have some knowledge of the Indianapolis Colts thinking when it comes to who they’ll take first overall in this month’s NFL draft.
“By the way, I will tell you this,” Wilbon said...
A lot has been said over the last few days about the Indianapolis Colts interest in Robert Griffin III, and now word is that he is refusing to meet with the team for a private workout, according to team owner Jim Irsay.
A Luck private workout 2day..we want 2b as thorough n disciplined n process of #1 pick..we wanted 2do private with RG3,but his agent said no

This sounds all too familiar. While speaking to Bob Kravitz of the Indianapolis Star, Andrew Luck’s personal QB coach made a bold statement that is reminiscent of what was told to Jim Irsay and Bill Polian 14 years ago when the Indianapolis Colts had the #1 pick in the draft. Back then, the individual was Peyton Manning. He informed the Colts that he really would like to play...
The Colts flat-lined early last season without Peyton Manning and behind the likes of QB Dan Orlovsky. Our Naughty Nurse says the franchise needs more than a little TLC. They need to be reincarnated in the image of the 1998 Colts.....
Despite some false reports from a fake CBS Sports Twitter account, the Indianapolis Colts aren’t going to use the first overall pick in April’s draft to pick anyone but Andrew Luck, according to Bob Kravitz of the Indianapolis Star.
There’s no need for Colts fans to worry that your team might draft a running back like Trent Richardson over Andrew Luck or even Robert Griffin III.
Scott Kacsmar (yes, our own Captain Comeback) says the 2012 Colts are hoping for a reincarnation as something better. He wisely tempers our expectations however with this prognosis:
Totally premature 2012 diagnosis: It’s going to be a real struggle for the Colts in 2012. Unless Chuck Pagano is the next coach to get the “genius” label, Andrew Luck exceeds the hype with an incredible...
Here are some quick hits about the first team organized activity, yesterday. The team met at their headquarters, playbooks were distributed and the players met each other.
Wheeler talks about being recruited
Also, Philip Wheeler spoke on a media conference call and said that he partially chose Oakland due to the coaching staff and schemes and partially due to the fans.
According to Baylor University’s assistant athletic director Heath Nielson, quarterback Robert Griffin III will not hold any private work outs for any of the 32 NFL teams. Instead he decided to limit his work to the Baylor pro day.
Now that we have the complete story, Colts owner Jim Irsay doesn’t need to wonder why RGIII decided to not work out for his team.
Nate is at it again and his time he's got a full seven round mock draft for the Colts including some names high on my list. I'm particularly fond of his second and third round picks although I doubt they both are available at those spots:
34th (second) - Coby Fleener, TE, Standford
Again, I've said my peace on this one, too. The Colts have obvious defensive needs,...
Colts coach Chuck Pagano said from the NFL Annual Meeting that he thinks running back Donald Brown could be the team's primary ball carrier in 2012. Brown is essentially the best option they have on the roster right now after he ran for 645 yards on 134 carries (4.8 avg.) and five touchdowns last year, all of which were career-highs. "Donald's a real bright guy and he...
