Colts Rookie Camp 2010

The Colts rookie camp is this weekend, starting yesterday and going through Sunday. There had been an extreme lack of official news from the Colts about rookie free agent signings. They did finally announce yesterday though (on their website) who all the rookie free agents are.

The players attending the Colts Rookie Camp are… Continue reading

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

Friday Five – Young Receiver Tandems

I know that after my last Friday Five being about rookie receivers and now this one being about young receiver tandems you’re going to start thinking that all of my Friday Fives are going to be about young receivers, but I promise they won’t be. I got the idea for this one when I was talking to Bryan earlier this week about if it’s better to have two big receivers (Larry Fitzgerald, Andre Johnson, Terrell Owens, Randy Moss, etc), two small receivers (Steve Smith, the other Steve Smith, DeSean Jackson, Santana Moss, etc), or one of each. Then we thought about the receivers that don’t really fit into either category like Reggie Wayne, Hines Ward or Chad Ochocinco. So this got me thinking about what the best receiver tandems of all time are. Then as my mind started wandering off in this direction I found myself wondering what are some of the best receiving tandems of all time that were two young players.  That is how this list came to be.

Peyton Manning Keep Moving Up

With three seconds remaining in the first half of the Colts home game against the Seahawks Peyton Manning threw a perfect pass for a 16-yard touchdown. The rookie, Austin Collie, made a beautiful catch for the Colts to go up 21 to 3 (after the extra point) before half time and became the 32nd receiver to ever catch a touchdown pass from Peyton Manning. All this however does not capture the significance of this play. Coming into the game Peyton had thrown 340 career touchdown passes. Earlier in the game, Peyton connected with Reggie Wayne to bump his career total to 341. Then with the play that I just described, Peyton moved up to 342 career touchdown passes, tying him with Fran Tarkenton at third on the all-time list in the NFL.
