On January 22, 2015, Luke Schultheis (i.e. “LuckAtLuke“) appeared on CNN Newsroom with Carol Costello to discuss Indianapolis Colts football and the “Deflate-Gate” controversy, as part of the team’s recent AFC Championship Game against the New England Patriots: Please let us know your thoughts and comments on “Deflate-Gate”, and whether you agree or disagree! ...
To My Esteemed Readers, It’s with great excitement that I announce that I will be joining FanSided’s Horseshoe Heroes as Co-Editor of their Indianapolis Colts’ website. Rest Assured, I will still be continuing to do work on this blog, but albeit in a more limited capacity. I wanted to thank you for your viewership, and it’s been great interacting with all of the proud members of Colts Nation. We hope to see you both here and there. What started as simply a boy, a blog, and a crazy idea has suddenly became so much more than that! Thanks again, Luke...Continue reading »
In a game that saw T.Y. Hilton accumulate 223 receiving yards on 9 receptions and 1 TD and the Colts’ take a 24-0 lead in the first quarter, the team narrowly escaped the clutches of defeat in Houston. It started with the Colts’ first drive that led to a 27-yard field goal by Adam Vinatieri, 3-0 Colts. The Colts then boldly called an onside kick due to an impractical kick return formation the Texans were running, and successfully recovered as Pat McAfee recovered his own kick. One thing led to another, and the Colts had their first touchdown of the game,...Continue reading »
With both starting guards, Jack Mewhort (ankle) and Hugh Thornton (back), declared out for Thurday night’s game against the Houston Texans, the Indianapolis Colts may turn to 4th-year veteran OL, Joe Reitz. Reitz, an Indianapolis and Hamilton Southeastern High School product, has started in 20 career games, all along the offensive line. On the Colts’ official depth chart, he’s listed as Anthony Castonzo‘s primary back-up at left tackle, but he’s also played a lot of offensive guard throughout his entire career. While he has yet to start...Continue reading »
The Colts’ Wednesday Injury Report announced that the team will be without 4 key players: LG Jack Mewhort, RG Hugh Thornton, CB Darius Butler, and DE Arthur Jones, all listed out. While Jones was expected, the remaining 3 were at least thought to have a realistic chance of playing in Thursday night’s game against the Houston Texans. The biggest blow has obviously been suffered on the offensive line, where the Colts will be without both of their starting guards. Mewhort missed last Sunday’s game against the Ravens (ankle), but veteran OG Lance Louis...Continue reading »
Evidently, it’s more than just being an elite special teams player. This past weekend, Colts’ safety Sergio Brown made his first career start as a member of the Indianapolis Colts. To that point, he had last started in 3 career games, all in 2011, while with the New England Patriots. On Sunday, however, Brown didn’t just start, he sizzled. Filling in for the suspended LaRon Landry (PED’s), Sergio Brown made plays all over the field. He finished the game with 3 tackles, 1 sack, 1 PD, and 1 QB Hit. In the process, he flashed overall speed and playmaking...Continue reading »
With the Colts’ 3rd win of the season, it’s time to acknowledge the “Horse Heroes” of Week 5 against the Baltimore Ravens. These are players that went above and beyond their positional requirements and delivered an exceptional performance, in another winning performance to boot: HEROES OLB Bjoern Werner: In Robert Mathis‘ return on the sideline, perhaps Bjoern Werner channeled his own “inner-Mathis”, as he was simply relentless as a pass rusher against Baltimore. He finished the game with 6 tackles, 4 QB hurries, and 2 sacks. Considering that...Continue reading »
