    Colts have plenty of room for Bradshaw, Richardson to run

    Brunos Blog, Colts September 24, 2013 at 9:58 am

    Ahmad Bradshaw isn’t going anywhere. Except forward, at least for now. The acquisition of Trent Richardson led to presumptions of imminent marginalization for Bradshaw, largely because of Richardson’s profile as the No. 3 pick in the 2012 draft and the headlines generated by last week’s blockbuster trade. But Bradshaw’s performance […]

    Monster not quite built, but it roared to life against 49ers

    Brunos Blog, Colts September 23, 2013 at 7:32 am

    BOTTOM LINE It would be wildly premature to suggest the monster is built, but for an afternoon it roared to life and despite several missing pieces managed to dismember one of the NFL’s angriest beasts. In a dominating performance in all three phases, the Colts simply overpowered the San Francisco […]

    Where did that come from????  Experts and fans alike were blindsided by a shockingly defiant effort from a Colts team many expected to get manhandled Sunday afternoon. But the opposite happened.  They manhandled the San Francisco 49ers, 27-7. Offensively the Colts controlled the clock for over 36 minutes, wearing a […]

    The Sports Network Andrew Luck’s return to the Bay Area was a smashing success, much to the chagrin of his college coach. The ex-Stanford star ran for a touchdown while putting together an efficient effort under center, and the Indianapolis Colts clamped down on the defensive end on their way […]

    It’s time for Episode 3 of the 2013 Season edition of Bruno’s Live Blog. After spending the first two Colts games perched high above Lucas Oil Stadium in the press box, this time I have the best seat in my house – the couch. So, instead of listening to JMV […]

    Colts, 49ers a clash of traditional, new-age QBs

    Brunos Blog, Colts September 22, 2013 at 11:31 am

    In Andrew Luck, the Colts feature a prototype of the traditional NFL quarterback. Sure, he can run when necessary – and it’s been a little too necessary this season – but his best work is done in the pocket. In Colin Kaepernick, the 49ers have a player who helped spur […]

    The Sports Network The Indianapolis Colts have nothing but fond memories of current San Francisco 49ers head coach Jim Harbaugh. Ditto for Indy quarterback Andrew Luck, who enjoyed success under Harbaugh at Stanford that led to him get selected first overall in the 2012 draft. Luck and the Colts aren’t […]

    Colts-49ers matchup resembles family feud

    Brunos Blog, Colts September 18, 2013 at 8:45 am

    For a couple of teams that haven’t met since 2009, there is an unusually familial feel between the Colts and 49ers. In fact, this weekend’s trip to San Francisco might seem more like a homecoming than a road game. Andrew Luck, Coby Fleener, Griff Whalen and Delano Howell all played […]

    Colts, Luck must solve sloppy second halves

    Brunos Blog, Colts September 17, 2013 at 9:24 am

    When Ricky Jean Francois walked into the Colts complex Monday morning, he was looking for one teammate in particular. “If nobody else asks me something,” Francois said, “I know it’s got to be Andrew Luck.” The former 49er defensive lineman could have some valuable advice for the young quarterback as […]
