Colts Countdown to Kickoff: No. 37 Zurlon Tipton

Most undrafted free agents rarely make much of a ripple when they sign with NFL teams. When they do, they face slim prospects of making the active roster. Central Michigan running back Zurlon Tipton fell under that category when he signed with the Colts in May.At the time, the Colts were stacked at running back. There’s Trent Richardson, Vick Ballard and Ahmad Bradshaw, all of...

Indianapolis Colts WR T.Y. Hilton ranked 9th best in NFL, Reggie Wayne 26th

When cover32 released its list of the top 10 wide receivers in the NFL today, there were plenty of people angry about their favorite team’s pass catcher not making the list. It made for a spirited debate in the “Comments” section below the article. The second batch of WRs, Nos. 11-20, generated a similar response. The next logical step in the ranking of the game’s wide...

Indianapolis Colts defense not ranked top-20 in NFL…

… In fantasy that is, but maybe in real life as well. With training camps underway, the NFL season is right around the corner. And that can only mean one thing: Fantasy football drafts are about to start happening. In order to get a jump on the competition, it’s never to early to start putting together a draft board. To help the cause, cover32 will be ranking each position, with...

Injuries Set the Pace at Colts Camp

Colts wide receiver Reggie Wayne arrives at Colts Camp in an IndyCar(Photo: Brent Drinkut/The Star) If “build the monster” meant actually building it, out of carbon and rubber and steel, the game of football would be easy. When a player went down, you’d just replace a part and throw him back in. Kind of like an IndyCar. But football players aren’t machines. They’re human...

Colts now lack experience on interior

The interior part of the Indianapolis Colts offensive line was weak link last season. The return of veteran guard Donald Thomas was supposed to help as he lined up alongside center Khaled Holmes and guard Hugh Thornton. That won’t happen now. Not with Thomas on the line, at least. Thomas’ season, like it did in 2013, came to an end because of a torn quad. He re-tore his quad...

NFL could improve upon the Pro Bowl

After recently watching the MLB All-Star game, it has me pondering the notion if the NFL could improve upon the Pro Bowl? It would make sense considering the NBA and MLB All-Star games are a lot of fun for the fans in attendance and the viewers at home. In addition, both get better ratings than the Pro Bowl. There are a few reasons the Pro Bowl receives the hate it does; players...

I wrote about this for Bleacher Report this morning, but I wanted to call attention to it here as well: The Colts continue to be ravaged by injuries, and it’s a historically significant phenomenon. According to Football Outsiders’ Adjusted Games Lost, the Colts have been in the bottom five of games lost due to injury in each of the last five years, and have lost nearly 50 games...

Matt Hasselbeck was completely flattered by his random drug test

The NFL's drug policy applies universally to linebackers, punters and veteran quarterbacks — including 38-year-old Colts backup Matt Hasselbeck. On Thursday, Hasselbeck's number came up and the league's medical team asked him for a sample. But the 17-year pro did not consider the supposed random testing a nuisance. In fact, he was quite flattered to be selected at all.

ANDERSON, Ind. — Indianapolis Colts Coach Chuck Pagano has settled on a simple motto for 2014: "Decide."It's the one-word message Pagano has printed on T-shirts and preached this offseason. It is up to everyone to decide if this is the year to finish the objective printed on last year's shirts: "Hoist it." From those Lombardi T-shirts, to a wireless...

Do the Indianapolis Colts have any of the most underrated players in the NFL?

Last week, I provided my annual list of the 10 most overrated players in the NFL. As expected, it caused an uproar, mostly from people who can’t take off their team-colored glasses and deal with the truth. For a good time, read the “Comments” section below the article; it’s pure gold and classic examples of denial. In the spirit of showing that it’s not all negative on...

Colts Notebook: Pressure and Opportunity for Werner and Mewhort

Follow @MarcusDugan Mewhorted So, who’s ready to see what Jack Mewhort is made of?  In a stroke of very unenviable luck, guard Donald Thomas tore his quad again in yesterday’s practice – the same injury that ended his 2013 season. With Thomas’s unfortunate situation comes a new starter (at least for now) in the rookie from [the] Ohio State.  With Mewhort in the lineup alongside...

Horseshoe Mailbag: Is Trent Richardson a bust already

The “bust” label tends to be thrown out to any player drafted in the first round that does not live up to his hype right away. Granted most of the time the label is well deserved, but for Trent Richardson, whom is entering his third season, it is not. For the first time in his career Richardson will have had a full offseason to work with the same offensive coordinator. After...

Fantasy, Roster and Real Football Implications from Vick Ballard’s Injury

In the mad rush between the Annual release and my trip to Indianapolis for training camp this week, I’ve yet to lay out all of the implications from Vick Ballard’s season-ending Achilles tear. On one hand, Ballard is not an especially talented back, and losing him is not as big of a blow as losing a starter. On the other hand, with the iffy depth at running back and the Colts’...
