The Football Fan Spot:
Donald Thomas proved that he deserved a starting job in 2013 after playing very well for the Patriots in 7 spot starts in 2012. Despite his limited playing time, he still finished the year as ProFootballFocus’ 17th rated guard. He was a better run blocker than pass protector, but allowed just 1 sack, 2 hits, and 9 hurries, while committing just 3 penalties and he has the versatility to play both guard spots.
The Patriots weren’t going to give him a starting job, but credit the Colts for snatching him up and paying him like a low end starter when he could easily end up being a high end starter if he plays like he did last year. It’s a risk because he’s so inexperienced, but they didn’t give him a lot of money. He was given just 14 million over 4 years and he’ll help out what was the worst offensive line in the league last year in terms of pass block efficiency.

Injuries have limited Greg Toler to 308 snaps over the last 2 seasons, but the Colts gave him 15 million over 3 years anyway. He’s always played pretty well when healthy and graded out above average on ProFootballFocus this season, on the strength of a game against Detroit in which he didn’t allow a completion on 5 attempts, picked off a pass, and had 3 deflections. If he could...

Well, his tweets made it sound as if he had someone in mind, but...
In the 2012 Draft, the Indianapolis Colts selected their franchise quarterback in Andrew Luck. The Colts had one of the biggest, if not the best turn around seasons in NFL history with going from 2-14 in 2011, to 11-5 in 2012. The Colts made great strides and 2012 but are still missing pieces to move them into the upper tier of the NFL elite teams. The Colts have a great future ahead...
A couple of weeks ago, Indianapolis Colts owner Jim Irsay caused a stir for most of this team’s fans when he began tweeting about the ogranization zeroing in on a wide receiver. However, there were no inklings from him or anyone else, as to who the receiver was. We supposed it was Randy Moss, as most of the bigger names weren’t ones they could afford. But with no deal in place...
Indianapolis Colts owner Jim Irsay hinted several times last week that his team had interest in a big name wide receiver. Rumors floated that it might be Victor Cruz, but Irsay shot that down.
