The Colts Authority:
After Pat Angerer went down during the preseason with a fractured bone in his foot, the Colts' community let out a collective groan. Angerer had a very nice sophomore season in 2011, one of the few bright spots on the team, and most Colts fans were excited to see him get another season under his belt in 2011.
The Colts linebacker group was already thin with a season-ending ACL tear for linebacker A.J. Edds, and weren't helped by Scott Lutrus season ending injury during week one of the preseason either.

Freeman has been a player that has been exciting us since the preseason, and he's exceeded expectations in place of Pat Angerer. After his 13 tackle and strip-sack performance against the Vikings, some even questioned whether Angerer's starting spot was i...

I understand the economy is rough, but converting an old Peyton Manning Colts jersey into an Andrew Luck jersey isn’t a very good luck, as you see from the picture above.
It would have been better to just wear the Manning jersey and not alter it, or buy a Luck jersey.

The AP points out that the Colts found great relief from their first win, but more importantly from the way they won:
Winning early, on the other hand, has put Indy’s players at ease.
The veterans who endured last season’s debacle acknowledged Monday that they’re glad 2012 won’t be like 2011, regardless of how many games they win, and the newcomers are just happy that they’ve...
Colts pass rushers should lick their chops: Blaine Gabbert expects to start on Sunday for the Jacksonville Jaguars.
Gabbert was pulled from Sunday's 27-7 loss to the Texans in the fourth quarter. It initially was unclear if it was due to his 7-of-19 passing performance or an injury. The Jaguars later confirmed it was the latter, initially saying it was a leg injury, but since...
Somewhat lost in the justifiable hysteria surrounding Robert Griffin III, surefire superstar Andrew Luck led the Colts to an impressive 23-20 victory over the Minnesota Vikings on Sunday at Lucas Oil Stadium in Indianapolis, Indiana. The 6-foot-4, 234 pound Luck, … Continue reading →
The Indianapolis Colts are already off to a new start.
After stumbling out of the gate last season with 13 consecutive losses and dealing with the interminable questions about going winless, new coach Chuck Pagano and new quarterback Andrew Luck have already made sure that won't happen again.
They're beginning to re-establish home-field advantage with three straight wins...

Paul Kuharsky of ESPN says that he loved Luck's pocket presence and mobility during the Vikings matchup, among other notes.
What I liked: Luck is just fantastic on the move, whether it’s a relatively small step up or slide over or a big rollout or run away from pursuit. Obviously he cannot lose 22 yards trying to run out of a late sack and has to surrender at times. But...
