The Indianapolis Colts don’t need to call Tim Tebow, but these 10 teams should

He hasn’t been seen in awhile, at least on the football field. The only vision of Tim Tebow of late has been on the SEC Network, where he currently is filling the role of a college football analyst. While that gig helps pass the time, and brings in a paycheck, the former Heisman Trophy winner still itches to get back in the game. The quarterback who electrified the league with...

The dream scenario for Hakeem Nicks this seaon

Arguably the Indianapolis Colts biggest splash in free agency was acquiring ex-New York Giants wide receiver Hakeem Nicks. In the 2013/2014 season, Nicks was an utter disappointment for an overall discouraging Giants team. This caused him to have a some-what falling out with the fans, with many fans stating that he just didn’t have the desire to win and play on a losing team. With...

Fantasy: Which offensive Colts to ride, and which ones need to find the pasture

If you have enjoyed the great joy that comes with “owning” players that you will most likely never meet in person, then you know that it is fantasy draft time.

Colts Rising and Falling: Preseason Week 2

The Colts lost to the Giants on Saturday in heartbreaking (much sorrow was had) fashion, losing a 26-point lead in the fourth quarter. The loss really means nothing. Some (NO NAMES WILL BE MENTIONED) have questioned the team’s fortitude, Chuck Pagano’s leadership and the size of Chandler Harnish’s clutch gene because of the loss, but that would be really, really, really, really...

Nicks gives exciting glimpse of Colts' potential on offense

Maybe Hakeem Nicks read his calendar wrong. Perhaps he thought Saturday night's Colts preseason matchup against the New York Giants was, you know, the regular season matchup the teams are scheduled to play in November.

Colts-Giants Post Game Recap

The Indianapolis Colts were dominant from the beginning. The offense looked composed, in sync and on the ball. They went pass-heavy very early on, and they moved the ball very efficiently. With Reggie Wayne and TY Hilton out, Hakeem Nicks was the No. 1 guy, and he stepped up and delivered a blow to his old team, hauling in 5 catches. Luck was perfect as well, extending plays with...
