The Colts Authority:
Phillip B. Wilson believes Dwight Freeney should take a little extra luggage to Hawaii:
But to be completely honest … Angerer is the most deserving Colts player of Pro Bowl consideration. The second-year pro who stepped in as defensive captain when Gary Brackett got hurt in the season opener has been nothing short of heroic.
Sure, Pro Bowl spots are often based on reputation. It’s often said a player must establish himself one year, then he goes the next. That means Angerer, whose 137 tackles rank fourth in the NFL, should get to go next year. And he’ll know his way around if Freeney gives his teammate the tour.

Dwight Freeney, a four-year Syracuse letterwinner and current defensive end for the Indianapolis Colts, was selected to the 2012 Pro Bowl on Monday. It is the fourth consecutive season that Freeney has earned a spot among the NFL's elite players, and seventh time in his career.
Pat McAfee Colts Jersey
Wow Factor of this Jersey: 9.9 out of 10. I know that times are tough for Colts fans but I didn’t know that it was this tough. I could understand if this guy was a Raiders fan and he was rocking a Shane Lechler jersey. That dude is freaking awesome and a lone bright spot for the Raiders every year. But this is Pat freaking McAfee, a punter that is 9th in...

Matt Grecco over at Stampede Blue took a look at the Texans game and came away with the idea that this was the best game the Colts played all year:
By a ridiculously wide margin, this was the best game the Colts played all season, and I'm really glad it was paid off in a win for the players. There were plenty of games earlier this season that the Colts played horrible, yet still...
Over the past two months, it has seemed like it was all but certain that Andrew Luck would be taking his pot of whatever-goblins-eat to the City of Fat Humps. Luck is obviously going first overall, we all know this. But now his destination is much cloudier. Actually, it really isn’t. Once the Colts complete the most unlikely three game winning streak ever (because Blaine...
Mike Chappell dutifully takes questions from readers each week. One reader wants to know if a trade for Luck is in the cards:
ANSWER: It’s certainly possible. The problem would be the cost. We’ve been discussing the value of the No. 1 overall pick in the event the Colts had it and decided to auction it to the highest bidder. What would it bring? Three No. 1s, a couple of No...
Anyone arguing against the Colts signing Robert Mathis need to read Ben Savage's breakdown of the game tape from the Texans game. Throughout his career Robert Mathis has been a clutch player whose versatility is widely overlooked. Once again he came up big against the Texans by forcing a fumble and then recovering:
Mathis starts off with an inside move, which he uses to...
Dan Orlovsky was back at work Thursday, quarterbacking the Indianapolis Colts through practice for Sunday's finale at Jacksonville.
Indianapolis Colts quarterback Dan Orlovsky missed practice Wednesday after his wife gave birth to triplets.
Colts defensive end Robert Mathis couldn't care less about the No. 1 draft pick. All he wants is another win.
Pat Angerer is a tough, no-nonsense football player, and for a defender, he has a heck of a stiff-arm. Tell the second-year Indianapolis Colts middle linebacker his end zone interception in the breakout victory over Tennessee was a game-changer and he sheds you like an off-balance blocker.
Indianapolis Colts defensive end Robert Mathis has been named the AFC's Defensive Player of the Week, Tom James of the Terre Haute Tribune-Star reports. Mathis had three tackles, two quarterback sacks and a forced fumble in last Thursday night's 19-16 win over the Houston Texans. The 30-year-old Mathis has 41 tackles and leads the Colts with 8.5 quarterback sacks in 2011...
