Five missed opportunities for the Indianapolis Colts in the offseason

The Colts have been active in the free agent market since Ryan Grigson took the reigns as the general manager of the Colts. During the Bill Polian era, the Colts would avoid free agency like the plague and would rest their laurels on a “next man up” mantra that saw minimal success due to consistent first round losses in the playoffs. One can argue that the lack of action in the...

The best free agents left by position: Could any help the Indianapolis Colts?

The first wave is over, as the NFL version of “Black Friday” came and went with teams shelling out millions of dollars during the first couple days of free agency.

Gosder Cherilus on the trading block?

In the 2013 offseason, the Indianapolis Colts signed former Detroit Lions tackle Gosder Cherilus to a 5 year 35 million dollar contract. Making him the highest paid right tackle in the NFL. More than Anthony Davis, Andre Smith, and Sebatian Vollmer, all considerably better than Cherilus. He will be entering his sixth season in the league, and his second with the Colts.

Bust city: Offensive Tackle edition

We’ve come to the finality of the worst draft picks on the offensive side of the ball and it is a wild one.

Indianapolis Colts: offensive line issues

The offensive line has been a point of weakness for the Indianapolis Colts since I can remember. Well before the Andrew Luck era and deep into the Peyton Manning one. It’s frustrating how bad this offensive line has been for so long. This needs to change as soon as possible; the team can’t be having their franchise quarterback being hit more than he needs to be, and potentially...

Watt Given Cheap Shot by Colts Player

The game was a total mess with the Indianapolis Colts beating the Houston Texans 25-3, but there was some funny buisness happening on the field. Colts offensive lineman Gosder Cherilus tried to send a message to J.J. Watt with what appeared to be cheap punches in a scrum during the game. Judge for yourself.   You can follow Patrick on Twitter.  He is the Editor of State of the Texans.

Eagles in Atlanta and Indy and other places

As expected, none of BC's current seniors were selected in the NFL Draft. But when you are a potential late-rounder, being an undrafted free agent is not a bad thing. It enables the player to select a team with a favorable roster. Nick Clany will be joining Matt Ryan with the Atlanta Falcons. I am obviously biased by fandom and geography, but this is a good fit for Nick. The...
