    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 […]

    Colts’ free agency: decisions in secondary primary

    When it comes time to make decisions about internal free agents, Colts general manager Ryan Grigson will have to make the secondary primary.

    Grigson wants more consistency from Colts

    Brunos Blog, Colts, NFL January 17, 2014 at 10:37 am

    Specifics were in short supply, but there was one recurring generality in Ryan Grigson’s media briefing Thursday at the Colts complex. Consistency. “We need to be more consistent as a whole,” he said. “This year, if you look at our team and our wins, we’ve beaten the best. It’s already […]

    Colts made progress, but much work remains

    The end was unquestionably bitter but the journey mostly sweet. The 2013 Colts exceeded the relatively modest expectations of the national media – the consensus suggesting a team that would struggle to make the playoffs at all, let alone reclaim the AFC South and win a wild-card game – but […]

    Run the ball, stop the run? Next mantra up for Colts

    Brunos Blog, Colts January 12, 2014 at 10:05 am

    From Chuck Pagano’s first day as a head coach, one theme has recurred as his philosophical foundation: Run the ball, stop the run. The Colts need either a new mantra or some new personnel. Though many, many things went wrong in their 43-22 AFC divisional round playoff loss to the […]

    After dropping the ball, Colts’ Richardson wants it back

    Brunos Blog, Colts January 9, 2014 at 9:40 am

    On the first carry of his first playoff game, Trent Richardson did the last thing he wanted. Attempting to shift the ball from one hand to the other as he cut back against the grain, he just dropped it. Kansas City linebacker Justin Houston recovered, giving the Chiefs possession at […]
