The three biggest holes still left on the New York Jets heading into training camp

The New York Jets have made some huge moves this offseason. For the first time in a very, very long time, you could actually make an argument that they “won” the offseason without sounding like a crazy person. That said, while they brought in elite-level players like Brandon Marshall, Darrelle Revis and Leonard Williams, this roster isn’t perfect. Now, we’ve just got to see...

Indianapolis Colts offense gets a new nickname

When your quarterback is Andrew Luck and is his third season he already lead the league in touchdown passes you feel blessed. So how do you reward him in the offseason? By giving him three new receivers in the ultra-fast Phillip Dorsett, and a son of a Hall Of Famer in Duron Carter, oh and some All Pro guy named Andre Johnson. And maybe throw in an All Pro running back in Frank...

Dwayne Allen is back with the Indianapolis Colts

All it took was one text for Dwayne Allen. After beginning his offseason workouts in Arizona away from the team, head coach Chuck Pagano was tired of not seeing one his best skill players around. Pagano sent a text to Allen about his displeasure. “We need you here. Period.” Pagano wrote. Although teams cannot force players to attend voluntary workouts it shows that the team is...

Colts taking quiet approach to debate over Deflategate ruling

  Dwayne Allen was in an awkward position Wednesday. As a tight end for the Colts, he was trying to toe the company line on ''Deflategate.'' As a player rep, he found himself defending Patriots quarterback Tom Brady. For Allen and his teammates in the Indianapolis locker room Wednesday, speaking about this year's big offseason scandal has become an increasingly delicate balancing...

Colts taking quiet approach to debate over Deflategate

INDIANAPOLIS (AP) Indianapolis Colts players did their best Wednesday to toe the company line about the scandal dubbed ''Deflategate.'' They kept repeating coach Chuck Pagano's mantra about moving on as they deflected question after question. They avoided the word ''cheater.'' They even tried to stay away from the possibility of Patriots quarterback Tom Brady making his season debut...

Could a new tight end emerge for the Indianapolis Colts this year?

For now it seems as though the Indianapolis Colts are loaded with playmakers at every skill position on offense. The receiving core might be the deepest in the league with T.Y. Hilton, Andre Johnson, Donte Moncrief, and new comers to the league in Phillip Dorsett and Duron Carter. As for running back they will have Frank Gore, Boom Herron, and rookie Josh Robinson. And if all that...

Raiders Select Clive Walford at 68th Overall

Earning comparisons to Indianapolis Colts' Dwayne Allen, Walford is both a passing threat and a very reliable blocker.  He missed a bowl game due to an injured meniscus which required surgery at the end of the season but prior, he caught multiple receptions in 11 of his 12 games including 127 yards against Florida State. The Oakland Raiders acquired Trent Richardson in the offseason...

Colts Get to Work on Defense, Draft CB D’Joun Smith from FAU

Your wait for a defensive draft pick is over. After trading down from 61 to 65 (first pick in the 3rd round), the Colts have selected Florida Atlantic cornerback D’Joun Smith (5-10, 187). This looks like a good best player available pick that also fills a need. Indianapolis does not have a deep group of corners beyond Vontae Davis. Greg Toler struggles with injuries, and Darius...

Colts' Allen says Patriots could have used 'soap for balls' and still won

While the NFL world is buzzing about the New England Patriots and "Deflategate," one person seems to be rolling his eyes. That man?

Colts TE: Pats could've 'played with soap for balls and beat us'

Patriots-Seahawks Super Bowl Preview: Russell Wilson Faces Big Challenge

Don’t put too much stock in the NFC Championship Game while sizing up the Seattle Seahawks against the New England Patriots. No offense to the Green Bay Packers, but the only reason why they were even able to give away that game was because of the horrible start by Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson. Wilson threw three interceptions in the first half and added another late in...

New England Prepares for New Indianapolis

For every Patriots fan that understands the embarrassment of that September loss to the Kansas City Chiefs, and how irrelevant that game is to what's going on now with the team, you can appreciate how Indianapolis has distanced itself from the mid-November spanking they received from the Pats.  Yes, there's the oft-sighted ground game domination of 246 yards from that day with Jonas...

They didn’t play many good teams. They didn’t have a strong enough offensive line or a tough enough defense. They couldn’t win a playoff game on the road. The Colts left Denver the team headed...

Dwayne Allen had eight regular season touchdowns, he added another one to his resume in Sunday’s AFC Divisional Round game. The reception from Allen was for three yards and gave the Colts a 14-7 lead.

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).

The NFL is becoming a passing league more and more every year and nowhere is that more apparent than at the tight end position. Some teams still go the traditional route and use their tight ends primarily as blockers, but a growing number of contenders have tight ends that are better than even the best wide receivers at caching the ball.
