Dregs of the Roster: Josh Chapman Film Review

Josh Chapman is going to be a star. I try to stay calm and objective when writing about the Colts. It’s not hard to find overblown rhetoric about sports, after all.

But as I re-watched Chapman’s work in 2013, that one phrase kept popping into my head. Josh Chapman...

Chuck Pagano took no solace in what everybody else at the Colts' complex already knew. Sunday's replay reversal, which gave the Bengals a touchdown, was a mistake.

NFL calls replay reversal 'judgment' call

Colts coach Chuck Pagano isn't looking for an apology over Jeff Triplette's latest officiating controversy.

Indianapolis Colts Season Preview: Why 2012 Won’t Suck (That Much)

Last season, the Indianapolis Colts sucked. That goes without saying (even though I went ahead and said it).

When I say it “won’t suck,” do not mistake that for me saying the Colts will win the Super Bowl...
