The Colts’ offense appears to be on the cusp of breaking through. Five first-team drives in two preseason games have generated 13 points, a middling figure, but three of the four drives that started in the Colts’ half have reached their opponents’ territory (one began in the Giants’ half after a turnover).
Aside from that running back who makes everyone grumpy, the biggest...

Joe Reitz is a rare example of a homegrown player. Every kid that dreams of playing in the NFL dreams of playing for their favorite team. And Reitz was a Colts fan growing up as he played high school football and basketball for Hamilton Southeastern High School in Fishers, a northeast suburb.
An All-State football player at HSE, the 6’7”, 320-pound Reitz decided to take his...

During the 2014 offseason, Colts Authority is making a concentrated effort to have a complex understanding of as many of the players on the roster as possible. It’s all a part of the Colts Authority Charting Project, an intentional effort to chart as many statistical and strategical details about the team as we can. In that vein, we have several film-review series going thoughout...
Often times, some teams in the NFL have such poor talent and depth on their rosters that it hardly matters if they bring back their existing free agents or not. However, for a winning team on the edge of a Super Bowl push, this is not the case for the Indianapolis Colts. They are proving wise by investing in their own players that have led them to two straight playoff appearances...

With training camp only a few days away, I breakdown the battles we'll expect to see at the Indianapolis Colts' training camp. Today's entry is about the offensive guards. There are 2 open offensive guard spots open this training camp. Donald Thomas seems to be getting one as he's probably the most talented, and with his deal, I'd be surprised if he doesn...
The Colts have made a lot of signings in free agency and have addressed a lot of needs. I breakdown the position that needs the most attention (i.e draft picks, free agent signings) and the ones that need the least.Offensive GuardDonald Thomas is a solid addition, but he's nothing special. He should be a fine guard though, and I doubt many will have to worry about him. The problem...

On a day when they clinched a playoff berth behind their record-setting quarterback, the Colts were rewarded with the best possible news.
The return of Chuck.
According to the Indianapolis Star, head coach Chuck Pagano is expected to resume coaching duties on Monday. Pagano, who's spent the last three months battling leukemia, will address his players at 10 a.m.
Indianapolis Colts coach Chuck Pagano has had a rollercoaster of a year.
His diagnosis and subsequent battle with leukemia gave birth to the Chuckstrong movement that may have provided his young team with the inspiration that they needed to fight for a playoff bid.
When the Colts lineup against Kansas City on Sunday, it could be the last time that they do without Pagano as reports...
