Applefield (OT recruit) chooses Rutgers over Purdue


Lost another "warm recruit"... We got a few other OT's still on our board, hoping for either AJ Allen or Martesse Patterson to commit soon.


Scrimmage thoughts

I watched the scrimmage today, given we had no open thread going let's discuss here. Here are my observations: 1. PG battle seems pretty close, but I'd lean towards Bryson starting. Bad news is...


WR replacements - scenarios & cost

Well, it appears we're in need of a WR now. So let's discuss who we could get and the likely cost. Given the salary info below on Spotrac, the Colts can take on a base contract of around $3M. ...


Recruiting - Tim Cason commits today - 3* CB

A first look by one of our readers at where the Colts could/should go in Free Agency, as well as the Draft.


Was RG3 being selfish for playing injured?

I watched the game last night, and like many others could see RG3 was hurt from the 2nd quarter on. We can argue over whether he was hurt or injured, but either way he was clearly not effective in...


Ask a colts fan

Sorry for the late arrival, but some friendly dolphins fans have been on StampedeBlue taking questions so figured a colts fan should come over here. Big game this weekend with two 4-3 teams...

Picked up a guard


The Indianapolis Colts claimed offensive guard Zane Taylor off waivers from the Philadelphia Eagles and waived offensive guard Matt Murphy. Taylor was originally signed as an undrafted free agent by the New York Jets on July 28, 2011. Taylor was then signed to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers practice squad on Sept. 28, 2011. He was released and then signed to the Philadelphia Eagles practice squad on Nov. 23, 2011 where he spent the remainder of the season. Taylor was a three-time All-Mountain West Conference selection as an offensive lineman at Utah and earned first-team honors as a senior. He started 38 games at center over his last three seasons. Taylor also earned academic all-conference honors on four occasions. Murphy was signed to the Colts practice squad on Sept. 28, 2011 where he remained for the rest of the regular season.


Draft - what picks would you change?

Okay it's that time of the year where we got nothing better to do than think about how the draft could have turned out had we been the GM!! Below is my ideal draft for the colts given the actual...

Suggs injured, Freeney to Ravens??

10 Suggs is out for 2012 with torn achillles. For all you "trade Freeney" fans, here's a good chance. Ravens are older club, at least on defense, that prob doesn't want to give up a year. and there are no other good pass rushers available. maybe we could get a 3rd or 4th rounder for him. and like the article says, Upshaw replaces Jarrett Johnson, not Suggs....

Mike Jenkins anyone?


Mike Jenkins is on the trade block. Due to make $1M this year and then be a free agent. Not sure what the ask is from the Cowboys, but Grigs needs to get on the phone and find out!!! If we could get him for a 7th rounder, I'd take it.


My take on draft and this season

Overall draft grade: B or B+ Overall I am happy with the draft, but I would have liked a CB like most everyone else. I really thought we should have taken a chance on Dennard in R7, or...


Mock Draft - Starter with each pick!

Tis the season to do mock drafts, so I tried one with a twist. Grigs has said he's going into the draft this year looking for a starter with each pick. Well considering we have 4 picks outside...


Grigs building good base to build with

I like the moves Grigs has made so far. After last year we all saw that the colts were starting bad players at a lot of positions - QB, RG, RT, SS, CB, DT/NT. I was hoping the goal this...


Trade Luck vs Cut Manning - Decision Model

Everyone on here has an opinion on the Luck vs Manning debate, but its time to put some numbers to this decision and decide what yields the best outcome for the Colts. I looked at 4 scenarios: 1....
