Stew is a journalism major that eats, sleeps, and breathes Colts football, while dishing out a grade of excellence that is only rivaled by Peyton Manning. That's been the story ever since he was a kid. He also enjoys spending time with his beautiful girlfriend and pointing out how great his favorite sports teams (Colts, Buckeyes, Reds) are, even if they really aren't.

Stew covered the 2012 NFL Combine for Stampede Blue and was subsequently almost blinded by St. Elmo's famous cocktail sauce. He also appears as a fan of the fictitious Gotham Rogues in the epic film, The Dark Knight Rises, so you know he's cool. You can follow Stew and his personal ramblings via Twitter at @stewblake22.

Who The Hell Will They Draft? Clemson DE, Andre Branch


If you're familiar with Andre Branch, you know he fits the above description to a tee. Hailing from Clemson, Branch has worked as your every day DE, long and tall, but lacks the bulk and strength, which makes him a perfect candidate to make a comfortable switch to 3-4 OLB in the NFL.

Colts Sign Free Agent Wide Receiver Donnie Avery


After Pierre Garcon signed with Washington, the Colts wide receiver core was about as threatening as a church mouse. But thankfully, Reggie Wayne re-signed. Now, in an effort to add more depth, the Colts have signed the 27-year-old former Tennessee and St. Louis wide receiver, Donnie Avery.

Who The Hell Will They Draft? Alabama CB, De'Quan Menzie


The Colts have yet to make a move in free agency to address the CB position and it's hard to gauge just how much this new regime will value the current CB core. However, I do expect them to draft a #2 to play opposite of Jerraud Powers. So, that brings us to De'Quan Menzie from Alabama: A versatile, physical corner who is definitely worth a look. Or two.

Andrew Luck Is Still Andrew Luck, Thoroughly Impresses At Pro Day


If you were able to catch Andrew Luck's Pro Day in Palo Alto, you probably came away even more excited about the potential of the Colts next franchise quarterback.

Luke Links: 'Sayonara, Gregg Williams...' Edition


Luke Links: 'Sayonara, Gregg Williams...' Edition: The Colts won a lot without free agents... RG3 isn't messing around... Peyton Manning has loyal fans... and Roger Goodell saved us from Gregg Williams moobs...

Luke Links: 'We Have A Winner!' Edition


Luke Links: 'We Have A Winner!' Edition: Bud Adams is heartbroken... Austin Collie wasn't a big fan of the 2011 season... The Colts won't have to face #18 in 2012... and Reggie Wayne is ready to help rebuild Indy's foundation...

Luke Links: 'The Chase For Peyton 2.0' Edition


Luke Links: 'The Chase For Peyton 2.0' Edition: Bud Adams wants Peyton Manning to be a Titan "for life"... The "Chase for Peyton" is likely down to two teams... Anthony Gonzalez might join the Darkside... and Cory Redding is a Colt...

Who The Hell Will They Draft? Penn State DT, Devon Still


The Colts must find a nose tackle. Period. Fortunately enough for them, this draft will feature a pretty deep class of impact defensive line talent. Devon Still, who is arguably one of the most polished and NFL-ready linemen prospects in the draft, certainly has the Colts attention, even if he won't be available.

Reggie Wayne Signs A Three-Year Deal To Stick With The Colts


And just like that, the legendary Reggie Wayne will continue to rep the horseshoe for three more years.

Who The Hell Will They Draft? Baylor QB, Robert Griffin III


The highly anticipated 2012 NFL Draft will feature the selection of two incredibly hyped quarterbacks and the Indianapolis Colts, along with the Washington Redskins, will be the two teams that have to learn if the hype is, well, real.

Luke Links: 'The Chase For Peyton' Edition


Luke Links: 'The Chase For Peyton' Edition: Peyton Manning is apparently aging backwards... Every team wants to sign your former franchise QB... A.J. Smith is a buffoon... and the Colts cut their whole team...

Report: Pierre Garcon Will Test The Open Market


Some questioned the Colts intentions to actually keep Pierre Garcon after Robert Mathis was hit with the franchise tag, only to sign a deal directly after. And now, apparently the Colts do not value Garcon as highly as he values himself.

Who The Hell Will They Draft? Mississippi State DT, Fletcher Cox


One of the greatest needs in the draft is a lane-clogging Nose Tackle that will be the anchor of Chuck Pagano's 3-4 scheme. Dontari Poe was my favorite, but another extremely versatile defensive tackle could be available at #34. His name? Fletcher Cox of Mississippi State.

Who The Hell Will They Draft? Cal Poly CB, Asa Jackson


Cornerback is arguably one of the deepest positions in the 2012 draft. Asa "Ace" Jackson of Cal Poly is a testament to that depth and could be a nice sleeper pick for a team in need (Colts).

The Peyton Manning Sweepstakes Is In Full Swing


Today's press conference was just a formality for most. The news was expected and now teams are making a mad dash to win the services of Peyton Manning. Who will be the victor?

The End Of An Era, But The Legacy Thrives On


Peyton Manning is no longer a Colt. That much is true. But when the sun sets on Indianapolis tonight, it will forever be remembered as a day that concluded an era which changed the way we view the game. Yes, an era has been "completed", but the legacy of #18 thrives on in Indianapolis and through the game that we love so much.

Report: Peyton Manning To Be Released On Wednesday


It's official. The Peyton Manning era in Indianapolis is over. Well, tomorrow it will be officially official.

Who The Hell Will They Draft? Central Florida CB, Josh Robinson


Yes, our profiles at Stampede Blue are dubbed, "Who the hell will they draft?" Yet, the ongoing theme for the 2012 Colts will simply be, "How in the hell will they fill all of these holes?" One of the biggest concerns in Indianapolis is an extremely thin secondary.

Luke Links: 'P-Day Is Upon Us' Edition: Robert Mathis will keep on bleedin' blue... The Colts roster has a lot of holes... Greg Williams is a scum bag... and Manning and Indianapolis are synonymous...

Peyton Manning's Arm Strength Is Improving, Throwing 'Much, Much Better'


Peyton Manning's rehab is on the up-and-up. So much, that he's throwing "much, much better." This may not come as a huge surprise and I'd usually tell you to take this news with a grain of salt, but this positive take happens to be courtesy of the Indy Star's very own, Bob "Noodle Arm" Kravitz.

Who The Hell Will They Draft? Virginia Tech WR, Jarrett Boykin


Jarrett Boykin of Virginia Tech isn't the flashiest name on the board---as some like to cling to tightly---or one of the most impressive, but his knack for the ball should at least catch the attention of the Colts.

Luke Links: 'Bill Polian Is Officially A Talking Head' Edition


Luke Links: 'Bill Polian Is Officially A Talking Head' Edition: Robert Mathis needs a new contract... #18 changed Indiana... Reggie Wayne could follow Peyton Manning... and Bill Polian is officially a "talking head"...

Contract Talks With Robert Mathis 'Warming Up Considerably'


It looks like Chuck Pagano's love for Robert Mathis has the Colts working towards giving the Pro Bowl pass rusher a new deal.

Who The Hell Will They Draft? Appalachian State WR, Brian Quick


With Pierre Garcon reportedly turning down a five-year contract offer and Reggie Wayne on the cusp of free agency, the Colts have a glaring need at wide receiver. Furthermore, the Colts lack a tall threat that can compete for jump balls and be their own version of Calvin Johnson in the red zone. Brian Quick is the guy you can envision in such a role and should be available in the second round.

Luke Links: 'Thank You, Indy' Edition


Luke Links: 'Thank You, Indy' Edition: Pierre Garcon wants more money... Andrew Luck and RG3 stole the show in Indy... Jeff Saturday knows Peyton Manning will play... and Indianapolis will likely host another Super Bowl...
