The Ride with JMV

Despite taking defensive end Laiatu Latu with the 15th-overall pick in last weeks draft, the Indianapolis Colts aren’t giving up on Kwity Paye.  They proved as much on Thursday, when they picked up Paye’s 5th-year option, ensuring he will be on the roster in 2025 and earning him a nice payday of around $13.38 million. […]

For both Laiatu Latu, the defensive end out of UCLA drafted 15th-overall by the Indianapolis Colts, and Adonai “AD” Mitchell, the wide receiver out of Texas that the Colts grabbed with their 2nd-round pick, the NFL Draft was a bit of a roller coaster. Both had to wait longer than they would have liked, for […]

The NFL Draft is done, which means the long wait until training camp has now begun.   For the Colts, it was, on paper at least, a productive draft. They addressed positions of need in edge rusher and wide receiver, while adding some depth to their lines and secondary. There was certainly a lot to […]

If you ask Chris Ballard (and several draft pundits), the Indianapolis Colts might have grabbed the steal of the draft in the 1st-round when they selected edge rusher Laiatu Latu out of UCLA.  Latu was the most productive pass rusher in college football last season, and if it weren’t for lingering concern over a neck […]

The third and final of the Indianapolis Colts divisional rivals, the Tennessee Titans, have undergone an offseason of change.  Gone is head coach Mike Vrabel following a 6-11 season, replaced by former Bengals offensive coordinator Brian Callahan. Ryan Tannehill, the team’s starting quarterback since midway through the 2019 season, is gone as well. In his […]

Yesterday, we looked at the Jacksonville Jaguars, where they stood and what they might do in the NFL Draft. Today, it’s the Houston Texans turn.  The Texans were the NFL’s Cinderella story last season. After a 2022-23 season that saw them finish 3-13-1, the Texans cleaned house, firing Lovie Smith and hiring DeMeco Ryans as […]

The NFL Draft is coming up, meaning now is as good of a time as any to look at one of the Colts AFC South rivals: the Jacksonville Jaguars.  The 2023-24 NFL Season was an up-and-down experience for the Jaguars. They began the year with an 8-3 record, before collapsing down the stretch to finish […]

The Indiana Pacers went into their series against the Milwaukee Bucks feeling confident, having ended the regular season with a nice run and comfortable in the knowledge that, at least for the first game, they wouldn’t have to face Giannis Antetokounmpo, who was out with a calf injury.  That confidence was quickly swept away, with […]

The NFL Draft is a week away, and for the Indianapolis Colts, there could be plenty of options available at the 15th-overall selection.  The Colts are fortunate; this year’s draft could have anywhere up to 6 quarterbacks selected early. That would be a best-case scenario for Indianapolis, as it would increase the likelihood of them […]

The Indiana Pacers will begin their playoff series against the Milwaukee Bucks this Sundays.  It’s a matchup against a team that the Pacers know well, and whom they had a lot of success against in the regular season. The Bucks and Pacers played 5 times this year, with Indiana winning 4 of those contests. Many […]
