Found December 28, 2011 on 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.

And he’ll know his way around if Freeney gives his teammate the tour.

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...

The Colts Can Not Fool Me

DERP! 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...

Chappell: Trade up for Luck?

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...

Angerer is Colts' best shot for Pro Bowl

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.
