The Consistency and Improvement of Anthony Castonzo

Since 2010, only one Indianapolis Colts offensive lineman has started three consecutive seasons in a row. That player is Anthony Castonzo. According to Pro Football Focus (subscription required), only one Colts offensive lineman has graded out positively in each of the last three seasons (and positively overall). That player is Anthony Castonzo.Castonzo has been the rock of the offensive...

Charting the Colts’ Offensive Line: AFC Championship Game vs. Patriots

You and I both know what happened in the AFC Championship Game on Sunday. The Colts lost. Badly. Again. And the Patriots were using deflated footballs. Instead of belaboring the same old points about the offense’s ineptitude, the coaches’ ineptitude, the defense’s ineptitude and Roger Goodell’s ineptitude, I’m going to do what I do best: focus all of my attention on an...

Colts hoping non-shifting offensive line provides stability

INDIANAPOLIS (AP) Anthony Castonzo has watched the faces come and go along Indianapolis' offensive line all season. He sees no reason to doubt the replacements now. With three of the team's projected starters on injured reserve, Castonzo is convinced this changing cast can come up with a good enough performance Sunday to send the Colts to the AFC Championship game. ''Obviously,...

Twitter Tuesday: Anthony Castonzo wants to get “the precious”

Gollum is not evolved this time, but the Indianapolis Colts will go after their version of “one ring to rule them all”. Peter Jackson is not the director of these playoffs, but if one man could determine the Colts future of this post season more than Andrew Luck it is the man that is protecting him: Anthony Castonzo. Castzono has played 1,190 snaps this season, tops in the NFL...

Five Colts named to Pro Bowl, but should it have been six?

First off, congratulations to Andrew Luck, TY Hilton, Vontae Davis, Pat McAfee, and Adam Vinatieri on being selected to the 2015 Pro Bowl. All well deserved, especially after many thought Vontae Davis would get the snub in likes of more popular names at cornerback. Even D’Qwell Jackson and Mike Adams were also named as alternates, but there is one Colt who might have been snubbed...

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...

The Colts faced their most hated rival at the Luke trying to avenge last year’s playoff loss. Sadly, the game was just as bad as that one in Foxboro. This week we start making the Report Cards a bit shorter and it couldn’t have come at a better time.

Fat guy glory: Watch 11 offensive linemen scoring touchdowns

There's no football play that brings us more joy than an offensive lineman touchdown score. Offensive lineman block for a living and "skilled" players make plays, but once in a blue moon, the big fellas get the glory. Normally when an offensive lineman (minus the center) gets his mitts on the football, something disastrous has happened for the offense -- a botched snap, a fumble...

Trampled: Colts 20 Patriots 42

The Colts started things off with a three and out, then on defense, allowed the Patriots to march 89 yards, mostly on the ground, for the first touchdown of the game. It bore an eerie resemblance to their playoff matchup a few months ago. There were glimmers of hope here and there – and the game was mostly close until the fourth quarter, but overall, the defense was punch-less...

Fat Guy Touchdown

The Colts have not looked good in Indianapolis tonight. In fact, I would venture to say that the only player looked good was Anthony Castonzo, the left tackle who grabbed a touchdown to pull Indy to within 8 in the third quarter, and then busted out a pretty stellar dance. If he works this hard on end zone celebrations, maybe we could see how well he could play linebacker?

WATCH: Indianapolis Colts Offensive Lineman Anthony Castonzo Celebrates Touchdown With Street Fighter Inspired Celebration

In the fourth quarter and down by 15 the Indianapolis Colts were trying to figure out what they could do to get the ball in the end zone once they got close. It took a couple tries, but eventually someone thought it would be a good idea to give it to one of the big boys on the offensive line. So they made tackle Anthony Castonzo eligible, threw him the ball, he caught it for a touchdown...

Get to Know an Offensive Lineman: Colts Anthony Castonzo, a Barbarian with a refined side

Busy with dirty work in the trenches, offensive linemen don't get the glory enjoyed by "skilled" players. In fact, if their number gets called at all, that usually means they've screwed up. They don't get drafted to fantasy teams, and the casual NFL fan can probably name no more than a few big men up front. We here at The Buzzer want to give NFL offensive linemen a voice and some...
