Good News Tuesday: They Are Who We Thought They Were

The Colts were up 17-0 in the second quarter when my brother — who officially wrote off the Colts after Monday Night Football — texted me “wow … Chud’s the man.” A few hours and many unrepeatable opinions of Aqib Talib later, the Colts pulled off their first upset of the season against the undefeated Denver Broncos. My brother started rummaging for his eraser. And Chuck...

GAME RECAP: Colts upset Denver 27-24, after firing OC Hamilton

“Please God, let it be Pep’s fault.” PREGAME Indianapolis hosting Denver — Week 9. Manning is looking to break records, while the Colts are looking to stay atop a truly dreadful division. Pretty standard fare. FIRST HALF First drives: two straight three and outs, different ways. Denver throws on three stright, but two great open-field tackes by Vontae Davis and Darius Butler...

Fantasy Owners Await Chudzinski's Impact on Colts Tight Ends

The Path to Victory: Week 2 Review

Last week, I gave two areas the Colts needed to find success to send them down the Path to Victory. Let’s review how they did. Result: 20-7 loss vs. NY Jets Offense Goal: 12 TE targets Actual: Zero Before you say, “Joe Reitz had a chance at a touchdown!” I’m going to stop you. Reitz is a lineman and should not have been in that situation. The coaching staff thought they could...

Doyle Holds Firm Grip as Third Tight End for Colts

When the Indianapolis Colts hit the practice field for training camp on August 2, plenty of high-profile roster battles will ensue. However, one not being talked about is for the inglorious duty of backing up starting tight ends Coby Fleener and Dwayne Allen.The man who has carried that torch for the last two seasons is the Colts' third-year tight end and Central Indiana native Jack...

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...

Late-Round, Undrafted Possibilities for Indianapolis Colts 2.0

As I mentioned yesterday, Ryan Grigson’ late-round drafting has been less than impressive in regards to those players remaining on the roster for one reason or another. Grigson however, has done a nice job following the draft, bringing in undrafted free agents that can contribute. Zach Kerr, Dewey McDonald, Jack Doyle (after failing to make final cut with the Tennessee Titans)...

WATCH: New England Patriots Big Man Vince Wilfork Nearly Takes Jack Doyle's Head Off

When you are a 325-pound interior defensive lineman like New England Patriots tackle Vince Wilfork the expectation is clear--clog up the interior of the line and do not let them run. For most teams that would be it, but for the Patriots there is a little more to the job description. You do whatever it takes to win.Big Vince was trying to do just that when he tried to help make a...

Week 17 Report Card: Colts at Titans

Sure, it’s Tennessee and the game didn’t matter, but it was still a solid display by Pep Hamilton’s offense. Andrew Luck only played...

Bill Belichick: Colts’ Tight Ends Present ‘Tough Matchup’ In Passing Game

The New England Patriots’ revamped defense has been very good against the pass this season. Its one weakness? Defending opposing tight ends. The Patriots have allowed 63 yards per game to tight ends this season, the fourth highest total in the NFL. Their task won’t get any easier Sunday night against the Indianapolis Colts, as the tight end trio of Dwayne Allen, Coby Fleener...

Top Plays and Head-Scratchers from Colts-Eagles

It’s an ugly start to the season. There wasn’t much of a fuss after the Colts lost by a touchdown on the road against the Denver Broncos in Week 1, but their latest loss at home against the Philadelphia Eagles comes with a lot of chatter. The Colts were in control of this game for most of the game, but things started to slowly go wrong for the men in blue. Like always in a loss...

Opportunity Lost: Colts 27, Eagles 30

The 15-yard horse collar penalty that really wasn’t on a run for no gain helped set up a fourth quarter touchdown, but it never would’ve happened if not for the real killer: 3rd and 9 at the Philadelphia 22 – well within field goal range, Colts up 27-20, preparing to ice the game...
