Jacob Tamme has been both critical and capable during his career with the Colts due to injuries to Dallas Clark.  Last year it was clear that he'd developed a rapport with Manning.  This year he's facing a starkly different situation like the rest of the offense.  He comments in an interview with LostLetterman: JT: Peyton is the best in the world at doing what he does – just running an offense, getting people in the right spots and calling plays. He’s doing the things above and beyond what a quarterback does. We just have to trust Curtis; he’s been doing a lot of good things. We just have to make some plays to help him out. It’s a little bit of a different offense but, at the same time, we just have to go out there and do the same things that we’ve done. And Curtis can do that.

Peyton Manning Reportedly Fine with Colts Drafting a Quarterback

Indianapolis Colts fans are well on their way to accomplishing their goal for the 2011 season.  The goal itself may have changed rapidly over the course of the offseason, but Indy has done a great job of conquering it.  With only six games remaining in the season, the Colts have a stranglehold on last place [...]

Colts favored vs. the bye

We used to joke that no one beats the bye.  Luckily, the Colts likely can't lose either according to Reggie Hayes: Curtis Painter walked off the field Sunday and saw his shadow. That means six more weeks of bad Colts football. I should clarify. We'll have one week of no Colts football – they have a bye next Sunday and are currently three-point favorites – before the...

Polian says Manning “OK” with Colts drafting Luck

The Colts now have a two-game lead in the Suck For Luck race, all but ensuring themselves a shot at drafting Peyton Manning’s eventual replacement.

Colts will consider drafting a QB

Bill Polian says the Indianapolis Colts may look for Peyton Manning's successor in the next NFL draft.

Here’s a fun game of Internet telephone, in which Adam Schefter not reporting anything led to a report of reports about a report. 1. In his weekly Monday mailbag, the ESPN.com reporter and longtime Shanahan confidante received a question about the Redskins’ endless search for a franchise quarterback. Read full article >>

Tuesday Open Thread: Moving On

Here's today's open thread. Possible topics of discussion: Polian says the Colts have talked with Manning about drafting a QB. I thought I had read quotes a couple of weeks ago about Manning understanding if the Colts have to take Luck, so I didn't really think this was news. Does anyone know the quote I'm referring to? I did a quick down and dirty look at...
