The Colts Authority:
He deserves better than this.
With your help, he might get it.
It has to be killing Jeff Saturday to endure this season. In what could well be his final season in blue and white, he's played some of his finest football and shown why his name will be enshrined in Lucas Oil Stadium's Ring of Honor one day. Saturday has anchored the line and played at his typical Pro Bowl level all season. He has been the voice of the Colts both inside and outside the locker room.
He is a man who saved football, and football has repayed him cruelly.
In the dark days of the Curtis Painter era, Jeff Saturday has received recognition from his peers, and if the fans see fit, he could be named The Heart of the Game.
The NFLPA Pulse of the Fans award nominations have been announced, and Saturday has been named one of the five finalists for the Heart of the Game Award, given to the player who personifies determination, enthusiasm and passion for the game.
They should rename it the Jeff Sa...

(Note: I'll be traveling over the weekend. Monday's post will be a comparison of the 1997 and 1999 Colts to show how the roster was turned over in two years).
With the Colts on a bye week, no harm can be done. There are four teams with two wins right now: Carolina, Miami, Minnesota, and St. Louis. As of this morning, the tie breaker standings for the first overall pick look...
Colts QB Curtis Painter is far from the only reason the club is 0-10 and the front-runner in the Andrew Luck derby but his recent struggles have led to his benching in each of the past two losses. Although head coach Jim Caldwell has been noncommittal to naming a starter for the club's Week 12 contest against Carolina, Pro Football Weekly hears it is likely Painter again will...
Dwight Freeney knows where to go to take his mind off a forgettable NFL season. The bye weekend off means an escape to New York. It always has for the Indianapolis Colts defensive end. If you're a handsome eligible bachelor who makes millions, what's not to like?
Aaron Rodgers is clearly keeping Peyton Manning's thrown warm this year. He told ESPN that Andrew Luck should sit and watch Manning if drafted:
“Peyton is obviously one of the greatest quarterbacks of all time, and for Andrew coming in who everybody is saying is going to be one of the most NFL-ready players ever, if he’s able to be fine with sitting behind Peyton for a...
Pathetic. That’s the only word I have for the organization this week, after watching the worst Colts home performance I’ve ever seen. The Saints loss was one thing, but to collapse in such fashion to the detested Jaguars at home with Blaine Gabbert starting at QB. Wow. The ineptitude witnessed on Sunday is inexcusable, and [...]
This tweet from Colts' owner Jim Irsay made me bust up laughing instantly:
Former K Matt Stover will be inducted into the Ravens’ Ring of Honor, presented by Smyth Jewelers, during halftime of this Sunday’s game against the Cincinnati Bengals.
New York Giants quarterback Eli Manning said he believes his older brother Peyton has a chance to return and play for the Indianapolis Colts this year. Peyton Manning, of course, has missed the entire season because of a third surgery on his neck, but has not been placed on injured reserve by the winless Indianapolis Colts. "Maybe he could be back this year," Eli told USA...
The Indianapolis Colts, and much of Colts Nation, is in denial. While they are frothing at the mouth about securing the services of Stanford quarterback Andrew Luck -- his father, Oliver, reiterated to me that Andrew is definitely coming out in the draft -- they continue to believe there is some way Peyton Manning will stick around while helping Luck earn a Ph.D. in Advanced Quarterbacking.
