Evaluating the Colts’ 2015 Draft

The Indianapolis Colts surprised almost everyone selecting the speedy WR Philip Dorsett out of the University of Miami in the first round of this year’s NFL Draft. Not only was Dorsett considered by many a huge risk in the first round due to his lack of overall production in college, but using a first-round pick…

Reggie Miller, George Hill react to Wayne’s time being over in Indy

The Colts announced Friday morning that they will not re-sign 14-year veteran wide receiver Reggie Wayne, saddening Colts fans everywhere.

VIDEO: Cialis ‘Inflate-a-ball’ Patriots parody

We knew this was coming. A spoof Cialis commercial has been created for the New England Patriots in light of what has become ‘Deflategate.’ Thank you, Internet.

Colts LB Robert Mathis’ misstep costs him four game suspension

The Indianapolis Colts will be without their leader on defense for the first four games of the 2014 regular season. Robert Mathis, the NFL leader in sacks last season with 19.5, has been suspended four games without pay by the NFL for using a prohibited substance. We’re not talking about steroids or recreational drugs. Mathis…

Detroit Lions hire ex-Colts coach Jim Caldwell as its next leader

Former Colts coach Jim Caldwell has landed his second head-coaching gig. The Detroit Lions made it official on Tuesday that they’ve hired the 58-year-old to be the franchise’s next leader. My first reaction is that I’m happy for him. He gave a lot to Indianapolis and the Colts, on staff from 2002-2011. He took over…
