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...

Kelvin Taylor touring the locker room, psyched to follow in Frank Gore footsteps

The San Francisco 49ers invested a sixth round pick in Florida running back Kelvin Taylor, and it's safe to say he is excited about the opportunity. Shortly after the 49ers selected Taylor, he posted this tweet. Trust 49ers nation I'm going do it like my big brother did it frank gore! #WITNESS!!!!— Kelvin Taylor (@Kelvintaylor21) May 1, 2016 I think we'd all love to see someone do it like Frank Gore did it, but I'm guessing we are not going to get ahead of ourselves quite yet. Gore slipped in the draft because of knee issues, but he was viewed as supremely talented when healthy....

Sunday evening open thread: Reset the counter, and unrelated, happy birthday to Frank Gore

Hope everyone is having a good weekend. I thought we might make it through a full 49ers offseason without a retirement, but I guess we'll have to wait until next year. Jarryd Hayne's retirement was surprising, but it's not quite like what we saw last year with the caliber of players deciding to call it quits. It's not nearly as painful, but still kind of a pain in the butt. On a lighter note, Saturday marked Frank Gore's 33rd birthday. He is coming off a first season with the Indianapolis Colts that did not go quite as planned. He had 260 rushes for 967 yards, which was the first time he...

Frank Gore still not over failing to reach 1,000 yards rushing last year

After the Colts' 2015 season ended, running back Frank Gore didn't hold back from sharing his thoughts: "This was the toughest season of my career," Gore said at the time. "A lot of f***** up stuff." The comments came shortly after the Colts had wrapped up a disappointing 8-8 season and missed the playoffs despite entering the season with Super Bowl hopes. For Gore, it was also just the third season in his eleven year career in which he didn't rush for 1,000 yards - and the first time he failed to reach the mark while playing in every game. His 3.7 yards per carry were the lowest in a...

Learning more about Austin Blythe in Q&A with Black Heart Gold Pants: "I do think it was a good pick"

To learn more about new Colts center Austin Blythe, we asked RossWB from Black Heart Gold Pants some questions about the team's seventh round pick. With their last of eight picks in the 2016 NFL Draft, the Indianapolis Colts grabbed another offensive lineman in Iowa center Austin Blythe. The team had already drafted a center in the first round in Ryan Kelly to be their starter, so the pick of Blythe was likely for depth purposes. That's not a bad pick in the seventh round, however, and to learn more about the center we reached out to Black Heart Gold Pants, SB Nation's site covering the...
