Should Colts Carry Six Receivers for Sake of Future?

At any given time during a typical regular season, the Indianapolis Colts will carry no more than five wide receivers on the active roster. However, this season presents much different scenarios than a typical season.Until waiving LaVon Brazill last Friday, the Colts were seven-deep at wide receiver. And that is seven quality receivers. Some teams do not even have two or three. With...

There are a lot of pieces to like on the Colts team this year, and there’s a lot of talented youth. Andrew Luck, T.Y. Hilton, Fleener, Allen, and Richardson are all going into their 3rd season (among others). Grigson and company didn’t exactly light the world on fire in free agency or the draft in this offseason, but there were some really nice additions that I’m excited about...

Rookie Donte Moncrief has a scary upside

Indianapolis Colts rookie receiver Donte Moncief was the 14th wide receiver taken in the 2014 draft, 90th overall. This seasons receiver pool was conisdered on of the deepest of all-time and that might be why he slipped into the third round.

Hakeem Nicks entered free-agency as one of the best available wide receivers, or at least the wide receiver with the highest upside. He was picked up by the Indianapolis Colts, grouped with T.Y Hilton and Reggie Wayne, and he’s got Andrew Luck as his quarterback. The Colts can provide an offense that suits Nicks and gives him a golden opportunity to redeem himself. Everything...

T.Y. Hilton – In defense of Pep Hamilton (sort of…)

In his otherwise excellent piece over at Bleacher Report, Kyle repeated something about a player that I’ve heard dozens of times from Colts fans over the course of the last 10 months. The player is T.Y. Hilton and the accusation is that he’s, as Kyle put it, ‘underutilized.’ Others use different words but whichever turn of phrase you choose, the thrust is the same; that Hilton...

Indianapolis Colts: T.Y. Hilton edition

The Indianapolis Colts made huge strides in the 2012 NFL Draft when they decided to change the look of the franchise.

Stanley Havili’s effect on the running game

Stanley Havili was a lightning rod for criticism in his first year with the Colts, mostly because playing him meant keeping T.Y. Hilton – or, later in the year, someone like LaVon Brazill or Da’Rick Rogers – on the bench. It didn’t help when a pass bounced off Havili’s hands in the playoff game against the Patriots, leading to an interception (something similar happened...
