Game balls and paper bag awards for the Indianapolis Colts

There might not be much to celebrate after the Indianapolis Colts were embarrassed by the Dallas Cowboys in Jerry Land. By the time the Colts had run their 10th offensive play in the first half, they were down 28-0.  In all, the Colts looked far from the playoff bound team that had just won their division the week before. So without any more waiting, here are the game ball winners...

Recap and Observations: Colts 23 – Jags 3

A home game against the Jaguars. Just what the doctor ordered, right? Well, not exactly in the first half. The Colts offense, well, let’s just says it was ugly early on, and the Jaguars were just plain hilarious. CBS should’ve played Yackety Sax over the halftime highlights. So. Many. Fumbles. Did the equipment people coat those game balls in some kind of space age butter? The...

I Believe That We Will Win: Patriots at Colts

There are some reasons that the Colts might lose this week. But there are also reasons that the Colts could win. As a fan, we put our faith in the latter (as analysts, maybe not, but this is a fan blog and sometimes we just have to say … screw it).

Did the Patriots Make a Mistake by Letting Adam Vinatieri Go?

Kyle:  The short answer is “no.” The longer answer is that they have one of the top two kickers in the league (Steven Hauschka is the other). The beauty of Steven Gostkowski (aside from his range and accuracy) is that the Pats don’t need to carry a kickoff speacialist on their roster to make sure the opponents don’t get the ball at the 40 yard line. Vinateri was, and should...

Adam Vinateiri used to play on scout team defense

Indianapolis ColtsBill Belichick loves to be prepared. If there is one thing that has been a key to the Patriots success this last decade it has been that they are always prepared for game day. That preparation starts the week before in practice, with the scout team helping the offense know what to expect out of the other team. So its no surprise he would use everything at his disposal...
