Lost in the distraction of “Deflategate” (or whatever we’re calling this thing), the Patriots actually played and won a couple football games against some really good football teams this postseason. Two weeks ago, the Pats completely shut down Andrew Luck and Co., notably...

The 10 Ten Plays of the Colts 2014 Season: 10-6

It ended not with a bang, but with a whimper.The Indianapolis Colts’ season didn’t have the end many hoped for. In fact, it ended in perhaps the way the entire Colts’ fan base prayed it wouldn’t. A beatdown at the hands of the New England Patriots, again.A whimper, it most certainly was. But that doesn’t mean the Colts haven’t had more than their fair share of ‘bang’...

Indianapolis Colts mascot takes out his anger on New England Patriots Mascot

The Indianapolis Colts were embarrassed just a week ago in Foxborough in the AFC Championship. Then the deflate-gate talk started. No matter how you view the situation, the Patriots were still the better team that day. But that did not stop Blue, the Colts mascot, for taking his anger out on the Patriots mascot at the Pro Bowl last night. Words cannot describe how happy I was when...

AFC Championship Game Report Card: Colts @ Patriots

After a terrific win in Denver, the Colts looked helpless in Foxboro, resulting in one of the most humiliating losses in recent memory and with it, the end of the 2014-2015 season.   OFFENSE: We have to start with Andrew Luck. 13/33 for 126 yards and two interceptions? Yuck. You can ignore both picks if you want, since those came with the game already over, but Luck looked helpless...

WATCH: Indianapolis Colts WR T.Y. Hilton Makes Incredible Toe-Dragging Catch

The AFC Championship went nothing like the Indianapolis Colts and their fans hoped. At the worst they wanted to at least be competitive, and in the first half the team was. The second half though--well, that was kind of ugly. On the whole, there were few highlights for the Colts, but there was one about midway through the second quarter that was too damn pretty.I'm talking about...

The NFL is looking into whether the Pats deflated balls

Could Hakeem Nicks be the Colts’ Secret Weapon?

With Bill Belichick’s practice of zeroing in on and neutralizing the opposing team’s top play maker, we can likely assume that Indianapolis Colts’ wide receiver T.Y. Hilton will be the one of Revis Island this Sunday. This is where Colts’ wide receiver Hakeem Nicks could come into play. An injury-prone Reggie Wayne is barely drawing any targets as of late and tight ends Dwayne...
