Indianapolis Colts: Trent Richardson is a bust

Not that it needs to be said, but Trent Richardson is officially a bust. Great job, Ryan Grigson, spending a first round pick on a running back less talented than an undrafted guy. Richardson is averaging 3.4 yards per carry in 2014 and has averaged 3.15 since he arrived in Indianapolis. He looks like he’s running through molasses on the field, he has average to bad vision and...

Recap and Observations: Colts 23 – Jags 3

A home game against the Jaguars. Just what the doctor ordered, right? Well, not exactly in the first half.

Indianapolis Colts issues start with the big boys up front

Simply put, the Colts were made to look like little boys against the New England Patriots Sunday night. Giving up over 200 yards rushing and held to a pathetic 19 yards on the ground. When your leading rusher is Andrew Luck it has been a bad night. Seven carries for Trent Richardson ended in 0 yards, as he was constantly hit before even getting close to the line-of-scrimmage.
