The Indianapolis Colts are Finally Stopping the Run

 They say three things in life are guaranteed: death, taxes and a poor Indianapolis Colts run defense. Okay, no one actually says the third thing, but they might as well lump it in with the first two, given Indianapolis has allowed 4.4 yards per carry from 1989 to 2014, the worst average in the league.  The Colts have two entries among the highest yard-per-carry totals allowed...

Do the Indianapolis Colts really have red flags this early in the season?

It has just been one week, but the Indianapolis Colts find themselves in a 0-1 hole to start the season. But many fans and media members have already jumped ship after the drubbing handed out by the Bills last Sunday. This is still a Colts team that was the early favorite to win the AFC this season. Can that still happen? Of course. Are there some concerns about the Colts? Of course...

Breaking down the Indianapolis Colts defensive line during their first game

Sunday’s game was ugly. Very ugly. The game inspired much doomsday talk but not to beat a dead horse, it was just one game. One rainy, away game. Instead of talking about the larger picture since that seems pretty well covered by now I decided to run through all the defensive plays on film to see how the new group fared.

Colts defensive line faces challenge against Bills

INDIANAPOLIS (AP) The Indianapolis Colts are trying to fill holes on their defensive line. Indianapolis placed defensive tackle Art Jones on season-ending injured reserve because of an ankle injury, and waived tackles Josh Chapman and Montori Hughes when it was time to make cuts in order to reach the 53-man roster limit. The moves were focused toward revamping a defensive line in...

Indianapolis Colts: Lack of defensive line depth

A lot of surprising moments occurred when the league mandated 53-man roster cut rolled around this weekend. This includes the releasing of Montori Hughes, Josh Chapman and other defensive linemen by the Indianapolis Colts, following Arthur Jones being subject to IR. This left the roster with only Kendall Langford, Henry Anderson, David Parry, Zach Kerr and Earl Okine serving as the...

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. This defensive line has been injury prone, and not particularly skilled during the Chuck Pagano era. It was time to make a change...

Three way-to-bold predictions for the Indianapolis Colts in 2015

For the last three offseason’s the Indianapolis Colts news has centered around Andrew Luck and how the young gunslinger is developing. But, this is his team now. The time to win is now for the entire Colts team. When the final whistle blew on the Colts 2014 season it was just another disappointment. Sure, they had reached the AFC Championship game for the first time since 2009...

Indianapolis Colts: How they addressed the defensive line

The Indianapolis Colts had a pretty atrocious run defense after last season wrapped up. Particularly, against the likes of the New England Patriots. But not much was done to help the run defending of the blue and white. The team let go of their best defensive lineman in Cory Redding, and replaced him with a perennial back-up in Kendall Langford, and that’s about it on the defensive...

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...

Henry Anderson might be a perfect fit with the Indianapolis Colts this year

One of the things that the Indianapolis Colts lacked last year against the upper echelon teams was consistent push from the defensive line. The most consistent defensive lineman over the past few seasons has been Cory Redding, who has signed with Arizona, but I am not sure that is such a bad thing for the upcoming 2015 Colts team. Redding was renowned as a great locker room leader...

Breaking Down the Colts 2015 Defensive Line

The Indianapolis Colts defense had arguably their best season of the Andrew Luck Era in 2014. They ranked a mediocre 19th in points allowed, but an impressive 11th in total yards allowed. This was largely due to the emergence of Vontae Davis as an elite cornerback in the league as well as defensive coordinator Greg Manusky scheming his butt off.However, nobody remembers any of that...

What are the Colts’ Biggest Needs Now?

Now that the frenzy has died down, the question is still valid but the answers have slightly changed.*The Colts signed safety Dwight Lowery last night. However, as a 29-year-old, mid-tier player, it hardly removes the need for a safety or two. Input given without Lowery signing having occurred...

For the Indianapolis Colts, safety is the biggest hole on the roster, but it is not the biggest need. That title belongs to the defensive line.

Kendall Langford was cut by the Rams earlier this off-season, but it wasn’t because he played badly last season.
