Indianapolis Colts: Projected starting defensive line

The Indianapolis Colts signed and drafted quite a few defensive linemen this off-season, to nobody’s surprise. The defense had a monstrously tough time stopping the run last season, particularly when it came to their rivals, the New England Patriots. This defensive line has been injury prone, and not particularly skilled during the Chuck Pagano era. It was time to make a change...

Indianapolis Colts: 3 Tight End Sets a Mistake

I recently heard Indianapolis Colts Head Coach Chuck Pagano mention that the offense will not abandon the three tight end sets it so frequently used last season. And, outside of goal line situations, this is a terrible decision. Now, he could just be saying it to say it, just like when he proclaimed Trent Richardson to be a bowling ball of butcher knives, but I can see Offenseive...

Is Pagano More Aggressive in Contract Year with Colts

Chuck Pagano is widely loved by fans and players alike, as countless soundbites have said as much. On the surface his 33-15 record, in his first three seasons at the helm of the Indianapolis Colts, doesn’t beckon much urgency for “Super Bowl or bust” expectations from the front office. Some controversial coaching decisions, however, have drawn some strong opinions from those...

Indianapolis Colts: Projected Offensive Line

The offensive line has been a rotating door for the Indianapolis Colts, for who knows how long at this point. Yes, a big reason for this is because of injuries, but the offensive line play itself has been pretty bad as of late. Chuck Pagano and the coaching staff are hoping to find a consistent starting line-up this year in order to help alleviate the less than ideal play of the...

Colts tight end Erik Swoope making strides

Three players who need to step up for the Atlanta Falcons next season

The Falcons aren’t that far away from competing for a Super Bowl, but they’re going to need to be a team that’s deeper than just Matt Ryan and Julio Jones. There’s a lot of talent up and down this roster; the problem is that most of that talent has spent the last two years underperforming. With that being said, here are three players that really need to step up to the plate...

However, during the first few days of OTAs last week, he is showing us why Ryan Grigson and Chuck Pagano were so high on the Miami product. Even Andrew Luck has been impressed by his new target. Even saying that he “fits in,...
