ESPN slams this Indianapolis Colts trio

The Indianapolis Colts defense was not the best unit last year, ranking 26th in yards per game (379.1), and 25th in points per game given up (25.5). But, that does not mean they were all that bad. The Colts still have plenty of talent on the defensive side of the ball. Vontae Davis and Mike Adams are both coming off of back to back Pro Bowls, rookies David Parry, Henry Anderson and...

Andrew Luck admits he was not 'very good' in 2015, even before injuries

The 2015 season was a sheer disaster for the Indianapolis Colts. They missed the playoffs for just the second time since 2002, largely due to the fact that Andrew Luck only played seven games after suffering a kidney injury. However, even before Luck went down, the Colts weren't good. They were only 2-5 with him as the starter and finished 8-8. It was by far the worst statistical...

Prevailing wisdom suggests that Indianapolis Colts and Andrew Luck ultimately will come to terms on a mega-buck contract extension essentially is a foregone conclusion. It’s not a matter or whether it will happen, but when. It appears that Luck is a believer in that theory as well. “I know I’m a Colt and I’m going to do the best job I can for this team, no matter what...
