Found October 05, 2012 on The Colts Authority:
Colts Authority Daily Links Paul Kuharsky of ESPN.com reiterated how thin the Colts are right now at cornerback as they get ready to face the surging Packers offense: Cassius Vaughn will start opposite Jerraud Powers. Darius Butler or Josh Gordy will be at nickel in two different versions of the package. It could be catastrophic, but interim coach Bruce Arians has no choice but to be optimistic. If anyone is injured, after Butler and Gordy, I believe the next man up is actually an old Gatorade cooler.  But don't worry, that cooler can defend the hook route sometimes.  Okay, not really, but let's hope we don't have to find out who really does trot out onto the field if one of these guys goes down with an injury.        @MarcusDugan

Juan Eye On Donnie Avery And T.Y. Hilton

I’m a burner Juan… The Colts pass attack is not going anywhere but up in 2012.  Andrew Luck looks legit as a real passer as well as a fantasy QB.  Not only can he get it done through the air, but his legs have provided owners with nice stats as well.  The Bears tore him up, but look at what they have done to fantasy elites like Rodgers and Romo.  Since the Bears game, Luck...
