Colts Rising and Falling: Preseason Week 3

The Colts’ loss to New Orleans in Week 3 was a bit disappointing, on many levels, but it’s only a preseason game. No matter the score, no matter the initial eye test, there are positives and negatives to be taken out of every game, and the preseason embodies that even more.

Saints Game One to Forget for Colts

The third preseason game is where the starters get the most time and it best represents how the team looks. If this is an indicator of how the Indianapolis Colts will play this season, the fans and the coaches should be scared. The starters looked weak. The offense took awhile before it got on track and they never got the running game going until Dan Herron and the backups came in...

Colts-Saints Recap

 In what was the exact opposite of last week’s performance, the Colts’ starters were sloppy whereas the backups looked sharp and nearly lead a comeback. The third preseason game is where the starters get the most time and it best represents how the team looks.

Preseason Recap and Observations: Colts 17, Saints 23

Follow @MarcusDugan The big third preseason game. Why is the third preseason game a big deal? Is it because it’s the most similar to regular season action in that the starters play the longest, or is it because we all yearn for a football game that actually means something? In starter versus starter action, the Colts struggled on defense and looked discombobulated at times on offense...

Boys Making Noise in the Preseason

Every year, players dominate the preseason, but rarely do they make an impact in fantasy land.

NFL Stock Watch: Dan “Boom” Herron

NFL Stock Watch Dan “Boom” Herron To be dubbed with the nickname “Boom” there has to be some significant meaning to it. Running back Dan Herron has owned every bit of that nickname dating back to high school. It has been said that he runs with such deliberate power that he often lays the hit on the defenders trying to tackle him. The name “Boom” has stuck with him ever...

Ohio State Player Profile – Bri’onte Dunn

The running back position at Ohio State has been a question mark at the beginning of the season for three straight openers now in Columbus. Before the 2011 football season began, the Buckeyes were already without their projected starting running back in Dan Herron, who had been suspended due to “tattoo gate” and backup Jordan Hall had also been suspended in an unrelated incident...

Draft Strategy: Running Backs

Another position headed for an overhaul is the running backs. Only BJGE and Dan Herron are signed with them team past March 11. With the rest as free agents, now is a perfect time to reshape a position that has been a significant culprit in the under-performing offense. We know that BJGE will be back in 2013. But the guy who was supposed to switch off with him, Bernard Scott, will...

Focus On: Running Backs

This is a position that must be addressed high in the draft. Excessive pressure is being put on Andy Dalton because the running game is often stagnant. The Bengals looked their best in the 3-games stretch where BJGE had consecutive 100-yard games. That needs to be the rule, not the noteworthy occurrence.
