Found December 18, 2012 on Bush League Chronicle:

The Houston Texans (12-2) slid past the Indianapolis Colts (9-5) on Sunday, 29-17, to clinch their second straight AFC South title. During the fourth quarter, and when all hope of a comeback seemed lost, Colts center A.Q. Shipley decided to focus his efforts elsewhere: his nose. The CBS cameras caught Shipley in the act and the rest is history.  Shipley has appeared in exactly one NFL game since being drafted in 2009. That came during the fourth quarter of Indy's game on December 9th. Apparently, Shipley dedicates the rest of the games to digging for gold. Via Deadspin.

Vick Ballard is good, but is he Franchise RB good?

The quest for the Indianapolis Colts to find a new Franchise running back has so far led to Vick Ballard, but can Ballard carry the moniker of Franchise back? The Colts haven’t had a truly Franchise running back since Edgerrin James and the recent replacements for The Edge in Joseph Addai and Donald Brown. Brown is still on the team, but he is just a holdover from a roster the...

Colts trying to forget mistakes, focus on future

The Indianapolis Colts spent Monday going through all their missed opportunities. There was the fumble at the goal line, a penalty that wiped out a touchdown and a blocked punt that Houston returned for a score. For this young team, Sunday's loss was a hard lesson in how quickly things turn in the NFL. But after going through the film, Colts players were convinced of one thing...

Indy hoping to make most of 2nd chance at playoffs

The Indianapolis Colts don't want to let another chance to wrap up a playoff spot slip away. Indy (9-5) can earn its first playoff berth of the post-Peyton Manning era with a win Sunday at Kansas City or a Steelers loss to Cincinnati. The Colts want to take care of business themselves after a sub-par performance at Houston. The Colts are 8-3 since Bruce Arians took over as...

Looks good. (Blood) counts were good. We’ve got our fingers crossed.” Arians believes it would...

And we think we still deserve some extra credit for last year. So for Christmas, please bring us… A 300 pound offensive lineman (make that two). A Gillette Fusion razor for Andrew Luck (the neck beard is no...

Andrew Luck versus Robert Griffin III is a non-starter

Robert Griffin is having a tremendous year. Andrew Luck, too, is having a tremendous year. There is some argument over to which one of those two young men will win the Rookie of the Year award, and both are deserving, no doubt. If you hold their statistics side by side, they are very similar, but Luck throws a lot more interceptions. I, for one, think Griffin should win the award...

Indianapolis Colts lose to Texans 29-17, fall to 9-5

  The biggest surprise in the Indianapolis Colts’ game against the Houston Texans on Sunday isn’t the fact that they lost. In fact, it was so expected that the shock would have been if they hadn’t lost. No, the biggest surprise has to be how close they were to almost making another miracle comeback in a season that has seen so many already. Trailing 20-3 after a Pat McAfee’s...
