Lord, Help Our Colts Against the Patriots

Lord, As I lit a candle for Andrew’s shoulder this week, behold, I received a vision. There was a great beast rising out of the northeast. On his head was a hood to conceal his thoughts. He had five rings on his fingers, and in his hands he held a young goat. And there was a number on the beast, and the number was the number of his name. The number was 12. Let him with ears hear...

Things I’m Watching For in the Colts’ Third Preseason Game

It’s the Colts’ third preseason game tonight, which, if you ask Gregg Doyel, is the Super Bowl of preseason games.

Colts rookie Parry making push for starting nose tackle job

If Saturday's preseason game was any indication, Indianapolis Colts nose tackle Josh Chapman shouldn't feel overly comfortable in his role as a starter.

Indianapolis Colts: Projected starting defensive line

The Indianapolis Colts signed and drafted quite a few defensive linemen this off-season, to nobody’s surprise. The defense had a monstrously tough time stopping the run last season, particularly when it came to their rivals, the New England Patriots.
