Preseason Wrap-Up: Colts Win the All-Important Third Game 24-14

Disclaimer: As a professional football writer (I have the membership card to prove it) I’m contractually obligated to treat preseason football as if it mattered. In reality, the only questions that matter in the preseason are as follows: 1. Did anyone die or worse, blow an ACL? 2. No, seriously. Who needs surgery as a result of this game? 3. No one? Oh great. Now let’s all act...

Since the pre-camp edition of the projected 53-man roster, there have been some roster moves, some guys have gotten healthy and there have been performances (or a lack thereof) that now warrant an updated list.

Observations From Preseason Week 1, Colts 10, Eagles…36

The Indianapolis Colts opened up the preseason in Philadelphia, in front of as many as 40 fans (okay, it wasn’t that sparse).  It looked like most Colts preseason games, in that it was pretty much a sloppy bloodbath of a loss.  The coaches are evaluating more than preparing for games this time of year (in Indy’s case, preparation takes a distant back seat to evaluation), but...

#TBT: How Former Seattle Seahawks QB Coach Jim Zorn Once Taught Matt Hasselbeck How to Slide

Three reasons the Seattle Seahawks should dump their offensive coordinator

It’s an ugly thing to say that somebody should lose their job. As a sportswriter, I experience it almost every day. Throughout the 2014 season we posted several articles about potential replacements for Seattle Seahawks offensive coordinator Darrell Bevell. Some of them were semi-serious (like Matt Hasselbeck), others not so much (Marshawn Lynch.) For the most part we found it...

Matt Hasselbeck is currently 39 and has made at least $3 million in each of the last three seasons, so it seems the Indianapolis Colts will soon be in a position to find a new backup quarterback.Given that Andrew Luck and T.Y Hilton will soon need new contracts, the most cap-friendly strategy would probably be selecting an inexpensive backup near the end of the draft.

Should the Indianapolis Colts consider a QB during free agency?

There’s one axiom that almost every football coach, analyst and fan believes about the game today: The NFL is a quarterback-driven league. If a team has a good one, they are a contender. If they don’t, they have no chance of competing for a title. Thus, landing an elite signal caller is priority No. 1 for every team. While the best place to find one is in the draft, not every...

Should the Indianapolis Colts consider a QB in the 2015 NFL Draft?

Right now, the Indianapolis Colts are set at quarterback. Andrew Luck is a bona fide star, a player who positions the franchise as a Super Bowl contender for years to come.
