    In Irsay’s absence, Grigson shifts focus to draft

    Brunos Blog, Colts March 21, 2014 at 2:18 pm

    Though Ryan Grigson has ticked all the boxes in free agency, some holes remain with the Colts. Though one of them as at the very top of the franchise, the absence of owner Jim Irsay should not create a major void in the Colts’ football operations. Irsay checked into a […]

    So far, so good with Colts free agent class

    The combination of a successful team, a popular coach and a gifted young quarterback has proven a game-changing intangible for the Colts in the free agent marketplace. Thanks in large part to the team’s positive culture, General Manger Ryan Grigson has been able to fill three of their major needs […]

  • Colts owner Jim Irsay

    Arrest may help save Irsay from himself

    Brunos Blog, Colts March 17, 2014 at 2:46 pm

    Jim Irsay is a lucky man. He may not realize it yet. Being arrested in the middle of the night, charged with driving under the influence and possession of a controlled substance, and then being hauled off to jail, is the sort of event that can provoke a wide range […]

    Nicks gets chance to prove worth with Colts

    He didn’t get a long-term contract, but Hakeem Nicks may have gotten something at least as valuable: the opportunity to re-establish his reputation while paired with an elite quarterback on a contending team. The former New York Giants wide receiver signed a one-year contract with the Colts Friday evening that […]

    The Big Question, as it pertains to Arthur Jones, apparently will remain unanswered for awhile. Where, exactly, do the Colts intend to play their biggest free agent acquisition (so far)? If Jones knows, he wasn’t saying in a conference call with Colts media Thursday afternoon. “I talked to coach (Chuck […]

    Busy start to free agency for Grigson, Colts

    Remember back at the Combine, when Ryan Grigson said he was going to take a more measured approach to free agency this year, using terms like “very prudent and fiscally sound” to describe his philosophy? Well, forget it. The market has been open one day and the Colts’ general manager […]

    With the official opening of the NFL free agent market this afternoon, rumors will be replaced by reality. There has been no shortage of either for the Indianapolis Colts, who already have been active, signing defensive lineman Arthur Jones (from Baltimore), inside linebacker D’Qwell Jackson (previously released by Cleveland) and […]

    Investing in Decker could bring big return for Colts

    The cards are shuffling, folks, and the NFL world seems to believe Eric Decker is at the top of the Colts’ deck. Just to bring you up to speed on what has been a pretty fast couple of days, the Colts: • Won the D’Qwell Jackson sweepstakes, signing the durable, […]

    By all accounts, D’Qwell Jackson is a strong leader, a great teammate and generally a stand-up guy. Whether he represents an upgrade at inside linebacker — or at least one worth the sizable investment — remains to be seen. The Colts agreed to terms Thursday with Jackson, who was cut […]

    The NFL is often referred to as a copycat league, but the better description may be “groupthink league,” at least in a psychological sense. Football is hardly the only professional sport exhibiting the groupthink mentality. Major League Baseball was inundated by analytics after author Michael Lewis published “Moneyball” in 2003, […]
