The Indianapolis Colts signed running back Frank Gore this off-season, and also added Todd Herremans, to try and fix what has been a subpar run game. But a part of the solution to this problem is already on the roster.
Daniel ‘Boom’ Herron showed some flashes last year that he could be a difference maker.

I’m currently working on a Dan Herron film review for Friday, but since that wasn’t quite done, I wanted to throw a quick list of things together of things I’ll be watching in the Colts/Giants preseason matchup this Saturday.
We’ll have more comprehensive preseason review next week, but a busy week for my personal life pushed some of our stuff back this week. In the meantime...
