BEST OF MAXIM
The Indianapolis Colts have seemingly been blessed. Or, if you prefer, Luck-y.
See what I did there?
In all seriousness though, if you could show me one single person – press or fan – who thought the Colts would be 8-4 with a decent chance at 11 wins in the pre-season, then I could show you a big fat liar. There’s no way anyone, even the most diehard fan (of which I unshamefully...
The Colts selected Andrew Luck who is considered by all experts to be the heir apparent to Peyton Manning. If Luck proves to be anything close what Manning was to the Colts over his reign, then Jim Irsay has got to be one of the luckiest new owners in the history of the NFL. No one at this point can look at the history of the Colts over the Irsay Era and not think that a curse or...
The struggles of the Bears, Packers, Giants, 49ers and Ravens in recent weeks allows the Indianapolis Colts to make a legitimate push into the top 10. I remain skeptical of Indy’s true chances when January roles around (the 59-24 drubbing in New England is an indicator of how far they are behind the truly top shelf teams in the league) and their -41 point differential leaves much...
Andrew Luck's dynamic rookie season is even more impressive when considering that most of the people he's throwing to are new to the NFL, too.
Five of the Colts quarterback's top seven pass catchers are in their first season. Receivers T.Y. Hilton and LaVon Brazill, tight ends Dwayne Allen and Coby Fleener and running back Vick Ballard are all learning the ropes along...
Colts running back Donald Brown has been listed as out for Sunday’s game against the Titans with an ankle injury, per Philip B. Wilson.
Brown suffered an ankle injury late in last week’s win over the Lions. With Brown being ruled out so early in the week it appears it could be a more serious ankle injury that could keep him out for multiple weeks. It looks as though the Colts...
It's time for another installment of my pre-Colts game Q&A with Nate Dunlevy. This is our fifth season doing this, and in that time, Nate has moved from his own site 18 to 88 to bigger and better things as Lead Writer for Bleacher Report at their AFC South blog. He's also written two books, including Blue Blood, a history of the Colts in Indianapolis, and Invincible,...
(Eds: Updates. With AP Photos.) By MICHAEL MAROT AP Sports Writer Andrew Luck is getting a crash course in rematch etiquette.
The man who seemingly did it all in college never played the same team twice in one season until he jumped to the NFL. On Sunday, he'll get a second chance at playing a team twice when Tennessee visits Lucas Oil Stadium.
Tennessee Titans (4-8) vs Indianapolis Colts (8-4)
The Titans travel to Indianapolis with revenge on their mind from an overtime thriller with the Colts, in what started Andrew Luck’s run of brilliance over the course of the last few weeks. If you recall, Luck executed a swing pass to fellow rookie Vic Ballard in overtime, who torpedoed his way through tackles to catch the pylon...
Chuck Pagano finished his final round of chemotherapy on Tuesday, the Indianapolis Star has reported. Pagano was diagnosed with leukemia on Sep.26 and had to go through three rounds of chemotherapy treatment.
On Nov. 5 it was announced that Pagano was in remission.
It has been said that Pagano could return for the Dec.30 season finale against the Houston Texans – and that is still...
It’s official, the Andrew Luck hype mobile is going off the rails like a crazy train.
Luck has been impressive. And Luck can make throws on a football field that even Tom Brady and Peyton Manning would have a hard time completing. But, that does not automatically put him in their category, and that certainly does not make him an MVP candidate, as Adam Schein — who has a vote...
The Detroit Lions let another victory slip through their fingers last Sunday when Indianapolis Colts QB Andrew Luck hit Donnie Avery for a last-second, game-winning touchdown. Continue reading →
Tennessee Titans (4-8) at Indianapolis Colts (8-4)
Last week, I bet against the Colts because I felt they were an overrated team and the Lions were an underrated team. I felt the Colts were overrated because they’ve had a very easy schedule and they’ve actually had a -43 points differential despite their then 7-4 record. They’ve won just 1 game by more than a touchdown, but...
A knack for late-game heroics and the ability to win the close ones have helped put the Indianapolis Colts in good position to return to the playoffs.
The Colts needed overtime to win at Tennessee earlier this season, but hope for an easier time Sunday when they try for a fifth consecutive home victory over the reeling Titans.
Paced by rookie Andrew Luck, Indianapolis (8-4) executed...
