Trent Cole feels rejuvenated with the Colts

The Indianapolis Colts turned heads this offseason when they brought in veterans like Andre Johnson, Frank Gore, Kendall Langford, Trent Cole, and Todd Herremans. Why would a team that is so young and with a quarterback like Andrew Luck bring in players that are on the wrong side of their career? Simple. The window on winning a Super Bowl is always slim. Even when you are blessed...

Colts' Newsome aims to build on rookie success

A season after leading the team with 6.5 sacks as a rookie, the expectations have risen for Indianapolis linebacker Jonathan Newsome. The Colts' fifth-round pick a year ago, Newsome saw significant action his first season, playing in all 16 regular season games, as well as the team's three playoff contests.

Hodges is Anything but a Camp Body for Colts in 2015

The Indianapolis Colts signed their typical bevy of undrafted free agents following the 2015 NFL Draft on Saturday evening. In the end, some will simply be camp bodies. However, the Colts have a strong history of retaining some very successful post-draft talent. One signing in particular has sparked my immediate interest with that of [ZackHodges] out of Harvard.If there was ever...

Early April saw the NFL dish out it's rumored 'severe' punishment to the franchise after it was revealed that artificial crowd noise was pumped into the Georgia Dome throughout the previous two regular seasons.

Five ways the Indianapolis Colts get to the Super Bowl

The road to the Super Bowl for the Indianapolis Colts goes through Foxbourough. Seems like we have been here before… But this is not the 2003 or 2004 versions of either team. The Colts are not lead by Peyton who seemed to be haunted when he entered Gillette Stadium, and that Patriots defense is no where close to what it was . This time it is up and coming Andrew Luck, and future...

Jonathon Newsome needs to replace Bjoern Werner

The Indianapolis Colts have given former first round pick Bjoern Werner time, it just has not worked out. Sure, he looked like he took a step forward at the beginning of the season when he had four sacks in the span of three weeks. Yet, that was his entire sack production this season. Weeks five through seven. If you look at this from a broader perspective then look at week eight...

Will Indianapolis Colts LB Jonathan Newsome Be Fined For Leg Whip That Injured Ryan Fitzpatrick?

The Houston Texans were already facing an uphill battle against the Indianapolis Colts when Ryan Fitzpatrick was in the game. When he was knocked out fairly early in the second quarterback that hill turned in to a freaking mountain. It would not have been surprising if the game had turned in to a blow out from that point on, but instead it remained a tough, hard fought battle.During...

Preseason Recap and Observations: Colts 7, Bengals 35

Follow @MarcusDugan Well, another loss to the Bengals to finish out the preseason. The outcome wasn’t all that important, but it certainly was more lopsided than many Colts players, coaches or fans would’ve hoped. The first half was ugly but close.
