Colts 2010 53-Man Roster Prediction

Thomas at the rookie camp

Kevin Thomas at the rookie camp

This was extremely difficult to try and predict. For starters nobody has any idea what’s going on with Kevin Thomas. He appeared to have suffered a season ending knee injury a few months ago, but is now on the active roster. He was recently seen at training camp in high spirits signing autographs and had no knee brace and wasn’t limping or showing any¬†favoritism¬†to the injured leg. He has said he’s still doing rehab and that it’s getting better and better every day. Reports like that don’t sound to me like somebody who will be missing the entire season. Actually, on the contrary, those are typically things you hear about somebody who is aiming to be ready to play by the regular season. I don’t think that’s the case with Thomas by any means but it certainly makes me optimistic enough to think that we could have him ready to go before the end of the year. Continue reading

Good News For Me

Bryan put up a link to an ESPN article yesterday and I’m going to follow suit, the article I’m linking to, however, is much shorter. It’s an article about Joseph Addai and Derek Dooley. And it’s a good article about Joseph Addai and Derek Dooley, which is good news for both my Colts and my Vols.

Here’s the link.

Colts Offense – WMD

Editors note: I recognize how unrealistic this idea is, but it sure is fun to think about.

Sanders being a beast

A little over a week ago I wrote a post where I mentioned that I would soon be breaking down what makes next year for the Colts exciting. One of the things that I’m stoked about is that it sounds like Bob Sanders is healthier than he has been in a long, long time. This post though (as you can guess from the title) is about the offense, and honestly the magnitude of firepower that the Colts have on the offensive side of the ball is enough in itself to have me excited about next year. However I received some inspiration to probe a little more thoroughly into the possibilities that this gives us when I read this quote from Jim Caldwell: Continue reading

New York Jets at Indianapolis Colts

This is the ninth installment of my 11-part series, previewing each and every NFL playoff game this year. To read any of the other eight click on the appropriate link below:

Jets at Chargers

Cowboys at Vikings

Ravens at Colts

Cardinals at Saints

Packers at Cardinals

Ravens at patriots

Eagles at Cowboys

Jets at Bengals

The Jets need to play their absolute best football to win this game. Unfortunately for the Colts, that’s exactly what the Jets have been doing lately and on top of that the Jets seem to have luck on their side as well. For the Colts this will be a very similar game to last week, with one difference. The Ravens had a defense that excelled at stopping the run, and the Jets are a team that excels at stopping the pass but both are great overall defenses. The Jets and Ravens are essentially the exact same team offensively. Run first, pass minimally, young quarterback, one successful young running back and an effective veteran running back as well as a good full back. So if the Colts defense can have a similar performance to the one they put on last week the Jets will have a tough time scoring, therefore a tough time winning. Continue reading

Baltimore Ravens at Indianapolis Colts

This is number six of 11 for my NFL playoffs preview series. To view the other click the one you would like to read below:

Cardinals at Saints

Packers at Cardinals

Ravens at patriots

Eagles at Cowboys

Jets at Bengals

Oh goodness. This is a chess match and I’d be lying if I said this game doesn’t have me nervous as a Colts fan, but I’m still very confident. The Ravens have never won in Indianapolis. Ever. This is a rivalry though. The entire city of Baltimore hates the Colts, Peyton Manning and Ray Lewis have an immense amount of respect for each other, and Reggie Wayne and Ed Reed are best friends and consider one another a brother. There are tons of story lines that go along with this game but when it comes down to it only one thing matters: who plays better on the field. That is why we’re going to put all of those other things aside and focus on solely what will be taking place on the gridiron tomorrow. Continue reading
