What Do The Colts Need to Work On During Week 3?

Dr. Filmlove or: How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Trust the Process – Week 2

Welcome to the first installment of Dr. Filmlove, a film breakdown of the week that was.

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...

Indianapolis Colts Send 323 LB Offensive Lineman Out Into A Pass Pattern--And He Tries Really Hard!

When you are in the NFL and weight 323 pounds you typically are asked to do one thing--hit people. Teams want you to either block on the offensive line or rush on the defensive front. Normally, Joe Reitz is blocking when the Colts call on him to play, but not Monday night.No, Monday night they had him go out for a pass. He tried real hard to get it, but in the end it was just out...

Indianapolis Colts: Offensive line projection

The Indianapolis Colts have had a problem with their offensive line stability since the beginning of time, it seems. And this year, it’s already started in an uneven way. Offensive tackle Gosder Cherilus’ health is up in the air as the season approaches, and the back-up plan isn’t clear as of yet. So far, the Colts have had Jack Mewhort filling in for him, which could be the...

Colts' Thornton hoping for a healthy 2015

The Indianapolis Colts have questions along the offensive line heading into training camp. Guard High Thornton hopes he can be one of the answers and after an injury-plagued 2014 season.

Indianapolis Colts: Projected Offensive Line

The offensive line has been a rotating door for the Indianapolis Colts, for who knows how long at this point. Yes, a big reason for this is because of injuries, but the offensive line play itself has been pretty bad as of late. Chuck Pagano and the coaching staff are hoping to find a consistent starting line-up this year in order to help alleviate the less than ideal play of the...

Colts' Herremans open to playing right tackle

The Indianapolis Colts hope they have the answer at right tackle for the upcoming season in veteran Gosder Cherilus. But with Cherilus coming off groin and knee injuries suffered last season, the timetable for his return is in question. So if Cherilus isn't ready to go Week 1, who is? Joe Reitz, who started three games last season, remains on the roster. The Colts did use a seventh...

Indianapolis Colts adding versatility along the offensive line; solid start

When the Indianapolis Colts signed Todd Herremans yesterday, they added a man who can play any position up front, something the Colts will need as they had 11 different starting lineups in 2014. Herremans signed a one year deal worth $3.5 million, and will likely compete for right guard of center, if he is unable to get there, he will  be the backup at both spots. He will likely...

Charting the Colts’ Offensive Line: AFC Championship Game vs. Patriots

You and I both know what happened in the AFC Championship Game on Sunday. The Colts lost. Badly. Again. And the Patriots were using deflated footballs.
