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 »

In what was a peculiar announced starting lineup change on Sunday, only looks even more peculiar now. Just hours before their kick-off yesterday, the Indianapolis Colts declared that undrafted rookie free agent center, Jonotthan Harrison, would be replacing their incumbent starting center, A.Q. Shipley, against a notoriously stingy defense in the Baltimore Ravens. My initial reaction was why?  Shipley wasn’t injured, and in his 4 previous starts, he had played well, in fact…very well. . The advanced statistics provided by ProFootballFocus (PFF) graded him...Continue reading »

Following Sunday’s win, the Colts made their first move of the week, when they signed OLB Victor Butler, who they had previously worked out during the prior week: “For his career, Butler has appeared in 63 games (2 starts), has 11 sacks and 50 tackles, all with the Dallas Cowboys. It’s unclear whether he’s fully recovered from his ACL surgery, but he would provide the Colts with another situational pass rusher. Keep in mind, the team has already lost OLB’s Robert Mathis and Cam Johnson for the season, and could possibly stand to add some pass-rushing...Continue reading »

It wasn’t the prettiest, but the Colts hung on and managed to beat the Ravens 20-13 in Indianapolis. In a game that saw a combined 7 turnovers and 11 penalties respectively, the Colts were victorious in what was otherwise, an incredibly sloppy game of football. In some ways, Chuck Pagano and his team “out-Baltimored” the Baltimore Ravens, by winning a close and physical game of football against his former team. The team whose defense he used as a blueprint to model his own defense after as now Colts’ head coach. Despite two Baltimore Ravens’...Continue reading »

When: 1 PM EST, CBS Where: Lucas Oil Stadium The Ravens (3-1) will be playing the Indianapolis Colts (2-2) on Sunday afternoon, only someone needs to tell them it’s a “No-Fly Zone”. The Colts are coming off two convincing divisional wins in which they outscored their opponents a total of 85 to 34 points. Of course, the Ravens will likely pose a tougher challenge than either the Jaguars or Titans respectively. Always boasting a notoriously stingy defense, the Ravens come in with the 7th best rush defense (82.5 rypg), and tied for 2nd in fewest points...Continue reading »

Once again, lost in the weekend shuffle was that the Indianapolis Colts worked out OLB Victor Butler yesterday. Originally a 4th round pick of the Cowboys in 2009, Butler spent his first 4 seasons with Dallas. In March of 2013, Butler signed a 2-year deal with the New Orleans Saints, reuniting him with Ex-Cowboys Defensive Coordinator Rob Ryan (now with the Saints). Unfortunately, Butler never played a snap for the Saints, as he tore his ACL in August of 2013 and was released this past August. Butler resurfaced by signing a 1-year contract with the Arizona Cardinals...Continue reading »

The best running back in the NFL is on a 1-year, $859,725 contract. Wait, you’re probably thinking, “There’s no way that either Adrian Peterson or LeSean McCoy make so little money!” Except, the running back I’m speaking of is neither one of those special talents. In fact, he’s actually on the Colts. It’s not the 3rd pick in the 2012 NFL Draft, Trent Richardson. It’s 8-year veteran, Ahmad Bradshaw. Richardson’s back-up.  Yes, that’s right. The same Ahmad Bradshaw with 34 carries for 182 total rushing yards on...Continue reading »

When the Colts play the Baltimore Ravens on Sunday, they’ll be without their starting rookie left guard Jack Mewhort. However, somebody must’ve not told this year’s 2nd round pick from Ohio State he’s a rookie, because he certainly hasn’t played like it. 4 games, and 4 starts later, and Mewhort has been a rookie that was been hardened by the fires of NFL experience. Of course, it wasn’t supposed to be this way, at least not initially. The Colts lost their assumed starting left guard, 7-year veteran Donald Thomas, to a torn quad in...Continue reading »

While in anticipation of this Sunday’s matchup with the Colts at Lucas Oil Stadium, Ravens’ head coach, John Harbaugh, made a tongue-in-cheek reference that there’s a longstanding rumor that the Colts pipe-in crowd noise: “Rumor has it, they pipe crowd noise in there,” Harbaugh said Monday. “So, we’ll see if that’s the case or not.” Whether Harbaugh’s comments were purely in jest, Colts’ head coach Chuck Pagano, Harbaugh’s former defensive coordinator with the Ravens, didn’t take too kindly...Continue reading »
