Five best running backs selected in Colts draft history

When you speak of Indianapolis Colts running back draftees throughout the years, the two names that immediately come to mind are Marshall Faulk and Edgerrin James. So it was instantly a battle between the two to take my number one spot on my top five running backs in Colts draft history. Both men had similar styles of running coupled with phenomenal pass catching ability. They both...

Bruce Arians: Vick Ballard a “poor man’s Edgerrin James

Colts running back Vick Ballard has carried the ball 146 times for 562 yards and one touchdown this season (Credit: AP Photo) After selecting Vick Ballard out of Mississippi State with their fifth round pick this April, I doubt the Indianapolis Colts expected him to play a pivotal role in the offense. Ballard has taken over as the starting running back and last week ran for 94 yards...

Colts found a “Poor Man’s” Edgerrin James in Vick Ballard

Colts coach Bruce Arians on Monday compared Vick Ballard to “a poor man’s” Edgerrin James, and said he believes Ballard has a “great future” in the league. “He’s powerful,” said Arians of the 5-foot-10, 219-pound rookie. “A poor-man’s Edge. Tough to bring down. Quick. Elusive. He’s got a great future.” Ballard racked up 20 touches and 104 yards in Sunday...

Edgerrin James Interview

Edgerrin James was an All-Pro running back for the Indianapolis Colts. Earlier this year the Colts inducted James into the Colts Ring of Honor. The former Miami Hurricane had a great college and pro career. He was part of the great Colts offense that had Peyton Manning, Marvin Harrison, Reggie Wayne, and Dallas Clark. I had the great pleasure to chat with James about football, his...

Colts To Induct Edgerrin James Into Their Ring Of Honor Sunday…

Colts To Induct Edgerrin James Into Their Ring Of Honor Sunday - Edgerrin James will be inducted into the Indianapolis Colts’ Ring of Honor on Sunday. He was the second-fastest runner to reach the 2,500-yard plateau in NFL history when he blew out a knee in 2001. James finished his career No. 11 all time with 12,246 yards. If not for that knee … “Then we wouldn’t be debating...

The Edge of an Era

Ed. note: Roy Hobbson is one of the best voices in the Indianapolis area. He's contributed before to, but most know him for his work on The Silent Pagoda (RIP) and Flipside Sports (sigh). He is my favorite writer on the internet, bar none. Please welcome his debut piece for Colts Authority. -NID Edgerrin James came to Indianapolis perceived as the least-Indianapolis...

Edgerinn James Set to Join the Ring of Honor

As Todd Smith linked Colts Authority to last night, the Colts are planing on inducting Edgerrin James into the Ring of Honor during a home game versus the Jacksonville Jaguars on September 23.  While Todd has already reported the news, I think Edgerrin James' career warrants a much more in-depth look at his illustrious career with the Colts.  Remember 1999? The Colts had...

Edgerrin James to join Ring of Honor

McManamon’s Mock: Browns get Michael Floyd and Jonathan Martin

I don’t necessarily agree with what Pat McManamon is suggesting in his mock draft. I’ve been on record supporting any number of players from Matt Kalil and Trent Richardson to Morris Claiborne. Some have suggested reaching big to get Ryan Tannehill which seems particularly unlikely and unwise to me. Somehow Pat McManamon’s suggestion seems smart to me even though I haven...

What If the Colts Traded the Edgerrin James Pick?

With the dilemma of to draft Luck or to trade the pick settling upon the Colts organization many are speculating what could be had for the pick. Few people realize however, that the Colts have been in this position before. In 1999 the New Orleans Saints traded their entire draft plus a first and third round pick the next year for RB Ricky Williams. This trade occurred with the...
