Kavell Conner visits San Diego today, should wind up a Charger

Former Indianapolis Colt, Kavell Conner, is scheduled to visit San Diego today. I watched Conner dominate in 2008 and 2009 at Clemson University and he has been nothing but a solid pro ever since. Signing Conner will not be a “sexy” move, but not unlike Donald Brown last night, Telesco is bolstering the depth on his roster. As an inside linebacker, the former Clemson Tiger had...

All-22 Analysis - Evaluating the Colts Defense, Week 3.

Peaks and valleys seems to be the theme this year with the Colts, with an impressive first half showing on Sunday completely rendered obsolete in an awful loss at home to the Jacksonville Jaguars. The loss came as a result of some incredibly poor football, whether on offense or defense. The only unit I can assuage of any guilt would be the special teams coverage and return units...

All-22 Analysis - Evaluating the Colts Defense

After watching the Colts crumble to an appalling defeat a week earlier, the performance on Sunday against the Vikings was uplifting. Hope flickers where negativity and pessimism once stood, and that can only be a good thing. While there were positives to take from both sides of the ball, I'm going to focus primarily this year on our defense, leaving offensive questions to those...

Kavell Conner and Jerrell Freeman: Why it Works

After Pat Angerer went down during the preseason with a fractured bone in his foot, the Colts' community let out a collective groan. Angerer had a very nice sophomore season in 2011, one of the few bright spots on the team, and most Colts fans were excited to see him get another season under his belt in 2011.  The Colts linebacker group was already thin with a season-ending...

8 Non-Starting Players To Watch During Sunday's Game Against the Rams

Everybody is under a microscope in the NFL. Every player gets evaluated before, after, and during games, as well as before, after, and during the season. During the preseason however, this evaluation is going to determine the future of hundreds of players across the league, and the room for error is extremely small. For the Colts, there are probably 25-35 guys who are pretty locked...

Jerrell Freeman: Someone to Keep an Eye On

There are a lot of new players on the Colts. At last count, at least 54 players are either new or have a year or less of experience.  This leads to a lot of moments where I read and update, see a name, and a blank slate just replaces my mind. Never before can I remember mixing up so many names, and being so unfamiliar with a roster.  The roster is filled with no-names, and it...
