Gore a Risky Fantasy Start Against Buccaneers

(Photo - Colts.com)   We'll use a simple rating scale for each player, grading each from A-F. An "A" is a must start, "B" is a recommended start, "C" is a ‘if needed start’, "D" is don't start and "F" is simply not a fantasy option at all this week.   Indianapolis Colts starting running back Frank Gore is hampered by injury coming into this...

The Path to Victory Review: Week 11

I wish Matt Hasselbeck received more consideration for NFL MVP. He is obviously the missing piece to the Colts’ puzzle. All this dude does is win. All joking aside, what a range of emotions on Sunday… “Maybe they could hang tight and steal a road win.” “This team looks terrible, they won’t win another game this season. “ “This is the best the defense has looked in...

Colts Authority Notebook: Colts Find a Way

A rough start made it difficult to believe that the Colts would actually be able to win this one. But the Colts did just enough to steal a win in Atlanta and bring themselves back to up to .500 on the season.   One Thing At a Time The Colts are a team that “knows how to finish.” says Head Coach Chuck Pagano “They know how to fight, and they know how to keep swinging and to...

Colts March past Atlanta 24-21

Today, I’m giving you my complete, unabridged, unfiltered (probably a bad idea), barely edited recap/ game diary, written as this sweet, if somewhat ugly, win unfolded, with a few adjustments.  So, raise a glass to our pal Matt Hasselbeck (who surely needs a drink after getting knocked around all afternoon), and re-live the win with us. Hasselbeck’s day didn’t start off pretty...

Friday Film Room: Beating the Atlanta Falcons with the Shallow Cross

Well, Indianapolis Colts fans, after a week off you now have to come back and cheer for a team led by Matt Hasselbeck. Good news for you guys is that Rob Chudzinski has had two weeks to game plan for this Atlanta Falcons defense. Also don’t forget that they’ve already seen this type of defense against Jacksonville who ran a similar scheme because Gus Bradley and Dan Quinn both...

Three surprise players for the Indianapolis Colts

The Indianapolis Colts have had some players step up this year. Matt Hasslebeck has completed 63% of his passes for 495 yards, 3 touchdowns and no interceptions when pressed in to service. Arguably the best backup quarterback in the league, he will be put to the test again with Andrew Luck out at least the next 4 weeks. AROUND COVER32 Hot Seat: Five NFL owners we all wish could...

Good News Tuesday: They Are Who We Thought They Were

The Colts were up 17-0 in the second quarter when my brother — who officially wrote off the Colts after Monday Night Football — texted me “wow … Chud’s the man.” A few hours and many unrepeatable opinions of Aqib Talib later, the Colts pulled off their first upset of the season against the undefeated Denver Broncos. My brother started rummaging for his eraser. And Chuck...

Indianapolis Colts: How to Attack the Denver Defense

Well, the Indianapolis Colts thought that letting go of offensive coordinator Pep Hamilton would solve their problems, but the timing of the firing could not have come at a worse time. The Colts are set to face the number-one ranked defense by DVOA standards this week and not to mention some guy that nobody in Indianapolis has ever heard of in Peyton Manning. Oh, to toss in some...

Three very bold predictions for the Indianapolis Colts

So last week I said my Week 6 predictions were wrong but on the right track. This time I was just wrong. Hilariously wrong. Sure some elements of my predictions were correct: 2 sacks is the best the defense has had all year in one game but that’s only half of what I said they would have. Sure Delvin Breaux limited TY Hilton to just 4 catches on 15 targets but he decided to trip...

Colts Authority Daily Notebook: Going to Battle

Well, tomorrow is the day at last. The game that has many sports fans excited, but many Colts fans terrified: Colts vs Patriots. This game is much more than just a rivalry at this point. It is a war.

Colts Authority Notebook: Coordinator’s Challenge

How Andrew Luck responded to 0-2 start last season

Who would’ve expected the Indianapolis Colts to start the season with a league-high eight turnovers and a league-low of just 21 points in their combined two games. And to top it all off Andrew Luck also has the lowest passer rating in the NFL at 58.9 Now flashback to the 2014 season when Andrew Luck rolled though Jacksonville and Tennessee with a combined eight touchdowns, one...

Report: Colts considering bringing back RB Ahmad Bradshaw

After getting beatdown by the Buffalo Bills last Sunday, the Indianapolis Colts are looking for some answers. Quarterback Andrew Luck was under constant pressure all game long which threw off his timing with his receivers. Running back Frank Gore was supposed to bolster the running game, but it was non-existent against the Bills defense last Sunday. Now that the coaching staff has...

Ahmad Bradshaw to the Tennessee Titans?

Running back Ahmad Bradshaw has had a tough offseason to say the least. Now 29-years-old, coming off a fractured fibula that he suffered in late-November of last year as a member of the Colts, and suspended one game for violating the league’s substance-abuse policy (marijuana possession), Bradshaw was passed over by 32 NFL teams this offseason.

Trent Richardson is out, Ahmad Bradshaw is out and Zurlon Tipton isn’t a lock to make the roster. The only returning player from last year, that wasn’t injured, who has a chance of making the roster is Daniel ‘Boom’ Herron, who took over as the starter towards the end...

Ahmad Bradshaw is a 29-year-old running back drafted out of Marshall University in the seventh round of the 2007 NFL Draft by the New York Giants. Bradshaw stayed with the Giants until the 2013 season, when he was traded to the Colts. At a young age, the veteran running back is still a great pickup for anybody needing a power runner who has seen two Super Bowl championships. AROUND...
