Colts have one of the most athletic offensive lines in the NFL

The main focus of this offseason for the Indianapolis Colts has been their offensive line. They wanted to improve the protection for Andrew Luck and the running lanes for Frank Gore, and I think most would agree that they have done so. Of course, around this time of year it's all about projection, as we haven't yet had the chance to see these players on the field. There are certain things that can help in determining how good a unit could be, and one of those is athleticism. Pride of Detroit's Kent Platte has thus developed Relative Athletic Scores for each lineman, using data from the...

Colts ranked as having fourth-best quarterback situation in NFL

Unlike so many teams around the NFL, the Indianapolis Colts haven't had to worry about their quarterback position for most of the past two decades. First it was Peyton Manning, and then after a rough 2011 season, they drafted Andrew Luck. With Luck at quarterback, the Colts have enjoyed a lot of success in recent years, though 2015 was a tough year for both Luck and the team. Despite that, the Colts still have a quarterback situation that rivals any in the league. Rotoworld's Patrick Daugherty ranks each team's quarterback situation every year, and he looks at more than just who the best...

Andrew Luck among the quarterbacks with the most to prove in 2016

The NFL is a quarterback-driven league, we all know that. That much is evident by a quarterback like Brock Osweiler getting massive money on the free agent market. No disrespect to Osweiler, but he's made just seven career starts in which he was mostly just average. The Texans gave him a four-year, $72 million deal this year regardless, showing the desperation for so many teams in looking to find their franchise player at the position. The Colts are in the fortunate position of already having theirs. Andrew Luck is undoubtedly their franchise player, and they will pay him accordingly at...

NFL Network analyst says Colts won't even compete for AFC South title

The expectations for the Indianapolis Colts in 2016 vary depending on who you ask, as Colts fans seem to think the team should win around eleven-to-thirteen games while most others think the team should win around eight-to-ten games. One thing nearly everyone is in agreement upon, however, is that the Colts should once again compete in the AFC South. That is, everyone except NFL Network's Heath Evans (yes, the former NFL fullback). Recently, Evans was asked whether the Houston Texans (who won the division last year) are still the team to beat in 2016, and Evans said that he doesn't really...

Andrew Luck on his approach this year: "I have an obligation to keep myself healthy"

After a 2015 season in which Andrew Luck struggled with turnovers and missed nine games due to injury, the Colts' franchise quarterback has turned the page and is getting ready for the 2016 campaign. Luck returned to the practice field this week as the Colts began phase three of their offseason program, allowing them to conduct OTAs - team drills, though without contact. Luck is working without limitations and head coach Chuck Pagano said he "looks really good," and he's working to learn the new offense and improve individually. Part of that improvement comes from evaluating himself and...

Andrew Luck practicing with no limitations, "looks really good"

Last season, Colts quarterback Andrew Luck missed nine games due to various injuries, amounting to a very rough year overall. He rehabbed those injuries, though there was some controversy and concern earlier this offseason about whether he was fully healthy. The more recent indications have all been that he truly is ready to go, and the latest one is the strongest: Luck is working with no limitations as the Colts begin OTAs. Head coach Chuck Pagano indicated as much in his press conference on Tuesday, and Luck himself confirmed it when speaking to the media. He's working with no...

Andrew Luck reveals nerdiest item he plans to buy when he receives new contract

Before long, Andrew Luck will receive a massive contract extension from the Indianapolis Colts. While it's still unknown just how big the deal will be (most estimates seem to place it in the $22-25 million per year range), what's clear is that the deal is coming (and likely this offseason). Recently, Luck appeared on "The Ringer" podcast with Kevin Clark and talked about all sorts of things (like books, Game of Thrones, and even a little bit of football), but one question that he was asked was what the nerdiest thing he will buy upon receiving that contract is. His response: a robot...

Spotrac projects Andrew Luck's contract extension with Colts

There has been a lot of talk this offseason about the looming mega-extension for Colts quarterback Andrew Luck. Colts owner Jim Irsay said that the extension will likely be nine figures, while he also said that he hopes to have the deal done by July 4 and that the Colts have made progress with Luck on the extension. There has been a lot of talk about the contract, but recently Spotrac calculated their projections for several key extensions around the league, including Andrew Luck's. Spotrac's "calculated" projection is a six-year, $115.2 million deal (an average of $19.2 million per...

Andrew Luck makes list of top potential MVP candidates for 2016 season

Last year, Colts quarterback Andrew Luck entered the season as one of the top MVP candidates. After all, he had just led the NFL in touchdown passes and finished third in passing yards in just his third season, so even bigger things were expected from him in 2015. Instead, Luck struggled through turnover-plagued football and injuries that forced him to miss nine games as the Colts faltered to an 8-8 record. While expectations seem to have come back down to earth for the Colts entering 2016, there are still plenty of people who expect a bounceback season from the team's franchise...

The only Colts player on PFF's Top 101 players of 2015 is no longer with the team

The 2015 season was a year to forget for the Indianapolis Colts. They entered the year with Super Bowl hopes and expectations yet stumbled to just an 8-8 record as they missed the playoffs. Andrew Luck missed nine games and the team as a whole struggled. It's no surprise, then, to see the Colts not very well represented on lists discussing the top players from the 2015 season. Pro Football Focus recently finished their countdown of the top 101 players from last year according to their grading method, and the only Colt that made the list is no longer with the team: inside linebacker...

Colts need to get on same page about Andrew Luck’s style of play

The coach says the Colts want to change the way quarterback Andrew Luck plays. The position coach says the Colt wont change the way Luck plays. Unless the goal is to keep defenses guessing, the Colts need to get on the same page regarding their expectations for Luck. Luck, as coach Chuck Pagano has said,

It looks like the Colts are trying Jonotthan Harrison at guard this offseason

Earlier today, the Indianapolis Colts tweeted out our first look at Ryan Kelly snapping the football to Andrew Luck, which is awesome by itself. But also interesting are the players surrounding Kelly, namely at right guard. First look at Kelly and Luck in action and IT'S BEAUTIFUL: pic.twitter.com/XaPLkxtBxh— Indianapolis Colts (@Colts) May 10, 2016 In the video that was tweeted out, Jonotthan Harrison was working at right guard with what looked to be the first team (Kelly was at center, Jack Mewhort was at left guard, and Luck as at quarterback). Of course, that part about the...

Austin Blythe was recruited by Andrew Luck at Stanford, now teammates with him on Colts

The Indianapolis Colts used a seventh round pick in this year's NFL Draft to select Iowa center Austin Blythe. He won't be the starting center protecting Andrew Luck, but he's currently a teammate with the Colts' quarterback nonetheless. The two were nearly teammates in college, too. When Blythe was in high school deciding where to go to college, he visited Stanford, where his host was none other than Andrew Luck. Luck and David DeCastro took Blythe to In-N-Out Burger during the lineman's visit, which proved to be the most memorable part of the weekend for him. Blythe ultimately decided...

Chuck Pagano: Ryan Kelly is "way ahead" in adjustment to NFL level

Colts center Ryan Kelly has impressed so far in rookie mini-camp as he adjusts to the NFL level. The Colts are holding their rookie mini-camp this weekend, and there's really only one player in the building who is essentially guaranteed a starting spot: first round center Ryan Kelly.  As a result, all eyes are naturally on number 78, the new starter up front to provide protection for Andrew Luck. Kelly had a prolific collegiate career at Alabama, where he was a three-year starter, a first-team All-American, a Rimington Award winner, and a three-time National Champion.  He didn't allow a...

Colts do not consider themselves the team to beat in AFC South

The Colts don't consider themselves the team to beat in the AFC South, but the oddsmakers believe they are. In nine of the past thirteen seasons, the Indianapolis Colts have won the AFC South.  It is a remarkable run of dominance against division opponents, and the team had a 16-game win streak against division opponents that ran from 2012-2015.  They won back-to-back division titles in 2013 and 2014 before faltering down the stretch without Andrew Luck in 2015. Now, the team's franchise quarterback is back and looking to return to form in 2016, and with Luck's return comes the high...
