I’m never going to tell an NFL head coach how to do his job. That’s just not happening. They are paid millions of dollars to coach a sport, and I am behind the mic and keyboard. That’s how it should be. But for the love of God, I might have to drive down to the […]

We really thought the real musical chairs game that the Indianapolis Colts were playing was on the offensive line. Boy were we wrong. In what was truly a verbal meme, NFL Network’s Tom Pelissero ruffled some feathers in Downtown Indy on Thursday. WHAT. Please tell me that saying that Brett Hundley is going to play […]

Through two weeks in this NFL regular season, the Indianapolis Colts have quite frankly been.. what’s the word? Bad. The offensive line is playing musical chairs. Defensive backs have been grated like parmesan cheese by Russell Wilson and Matthew Stafford. And nobody can figure out what the hell the plan is with Marlon Mack. Now […]

When Carson Wentz was traded from the Philadelphia Eagles to the Indianapolis Colts, it must have felt like ascending to heaven and standing outside of the golden gates. The days of being sacked 50 times a season were over. He just inherited one of the best offensive lines in football, with one of the best […]

This was a column I never thought in a million years that I would write if you asked me during Indianapolis Colts Training Camp. When Kevin Bowen and I gave our “All-Camp” picks, the Blue and White’s defensive backfield was a spot I felt so strongly about. I love me some Khari Willis; Believe me […]

Let’s not kid ourselves. The Colts have been brutal in season openers over the years. Don’t even remind me about the Jacksonville game last year. In what could have been the game that eventually won them the AFC South, Philip Rivers was bad, T.Y. Hilton had butterfingers, and the Colts didn’t have it. You don’t […]

Just like the Indianapolis Colts, the problems that exist for the Indiana Pacers slam into one door, tail out another, and then ramp back in again. Getting Rick Carlisle back to coach in the 317 was great. Terrific, actually. But Carlisle can’t fix lousy luck. That’s exactly what Indiana has dealt with. The proverbial ‘wins’ […]

The Colts just can’t have nice things. It’s brutal. Carson Wentz back to full 11 on 11 practice! But Quenton Nelson is out with a back problem. Eric Fisher is practicing at a limited capacity! But Xavier Rhodes has a calf issue and Frank Reich said it’s TBD on him playing Sunday. It’s just silly. […]

Indianapolis Colts rookie defensive end Kwity Paye is the the largest human being I’ve ever seen. He’s not the tallest. But for how he is built, this dude is absolutely massive. His lower body looks like it could leg press a monster truck. The physical side of Paye has always been there for the 1st-round […]

As Rick Pitino once masterfully said, “Larry Bird is not walking through that door.” For the Indianapolis Colts, the start of the 2020 schedule is not walking through the Lucas Oil Stadium door. The Jaguars, Vikings, and Jets? You wish. How about the Seahawks, Rams, and Titans? Yeah that’s concerning. After a training camp filled […]
