It’s an ugly thing to say that somebody should lose their job. As a sportswriter, I experience it almost every day.

Indianapolis Colts 7-Round Mock Draft

Round One – Andrus Peat, OT, Stanford View image | I love power offensive lineman from Stanford and Peat is just that.  I think Peat has a lot of potential at Right Tackle, even though some has projected him to play on the left side of the line. I don’t think it’d be smart for the Colts to move on with Gosder Cherilus at Right Tackle. This is...

Colts Could Draft Matt Hasselbeck's Replacement this Year

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.

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. And he hasn’t even reached his potential yet, given that he’s coming off of his best statistical season in 2014. But behind Flacco, things are pretty thin for the Colts.
