    Projecting Colts’ picks, priorities in NFL Draft

    Where some GMs see red flags, Ryan Grigson sees green lights. You get the impression he spends his time at the NFL Scouting Combine seeking out at players that don’t put up impressive numbers or otherwise struggle. Vick Ballard tripped and knocked over the timer when trying to run the […]

    Colts’ Grigson working to balance present, future

    While Pacers boss Larry Bird makes his moves with strictly this season in mind, Ryan Grigson has no such luxury with the Colts. With every move Grigson makes he must keep a sharp eye on 2016. That’s when the bill comes due. The downside to having a great draft class […]

    If you think the media and the fans are curious about what personnel decisions lie ahead for the Colts, you are correct. But don’t stop there. In the aftermath of a second consecutive 11-5 season that ended with a 44-23 loss at New England in the AFC Divisional Round on […]

    Ballard injury forces latest example of ‘next man up’

    Colts, NFL September 13, 2013 at 1:45 pm

    By Greg Rakestraw That most common of football cliches was the phrase of choice Friday afternoon in the Colts’ locker room. Ahmad Bradshaw, Donald Brown, and now rookie Kerwynn Wiliams. That trio are now the “next men up” for the Indianapolis Colts. The injury occurred in freak fashion during […]

    What a shame. When the Dolphins came to town last year, it produced one of the most magical moments in franchise history. Chuck Pagano, still drawn and battered by leukemia treatment, returned to the locker room after a rousing 23-20 victory to address the team with his now-famous “I’ve got […]

    Let me get this out of the way first: I am an advocate of the Colts’ commitment to improving the running game. What Pep Hamilton has been selling, I have bought. For all of the reasons Hamilton has stated, it is critical to the team’s growth to establish that threat […]

    Colts must solve “nightmare” of read-option, lest it recur

    Some game films, you’d really rather just not watch. Even when you win. “You watched the game. You were there. I got to relive it a couple times,” Colts Coach Chuck Pagano said Monday. “I watched it late last night, watched it again today with the rest of the coaches. […]

    Colts avert disaster but don’t show much progress

    Brunos Blog, Colts September 9, 2013 at 7:27 am

    BOTTOM LINE For all the new faces on the roster, it took big plays from three familiar ones to deliver the Colts from the doorstep of ignominy Sunday afternoon. After Andrew Luck scrambled 19 yards for the go-ahead score with 5:20 remaining, Robert Mathis chased down Terrelle Pryor for a […]

    Grading the Colts’ progress in key areas of emphasis

    Brunos Blog, Colts September 2, 2013 at 10:32 am

    The Colts entered training camp with a fairly substantial to-do list. With rebuilds on both the offensive and defensive lines and other substantial alterations throughout the roster, including new coordinators for offense (Pep Hamilton) and special teams (Tom McMahon), there was much to get done in a relatively short period […]
