Pagano Did All He Could to Give the 49ers Game Away

Pagano Did All He Could to Give the 49ers Game Away

“Players win games, coaches lose them” This is one of the truest sayings in football, and perhaps in sports. The Colts received some tremendous performances against the 49ers; TY Hilton stepped up with a 177 yard performance, Jabaal Sheard had a fantastic game, and Marlon Mack broke out. Yet, despite the fantastic performances, Chuck Pagano nearly found a way to throw it all away. Again. The game was full of blunders from the coaching staff. It all started in the 2nd quarter, when the Colts were returning a punt. The 49ers punted the ball deep in their own zone and the ball was returned...

Tale of the Tape: Woods and Hankins make a big difference on the ground against Seattle Week 4

The Indianapolis Colts defense has undergone a great deal of change over the course of the off-season. The front seven is entirely new except for the return of a healthy Henry Andersonand second-year inside linebacker Antonio Morrison. The early results from this group have been promising against the run. The biggest keys to this new success is the addition of defensive tackles Al Woods and Johnathan Hankins. Their counterparts at outside linebacker in Jabaal Sheard and John Simon have also played an important role in making it much more difficult for opponents to run the ball. Despite this...

Malik Hooker is key to the new look Colts defense

Malik Hooker is key to the new look Colts defense

The Colts defense has been a weakness since franchise quarterback Andrew Luck entered the league in 2012. The team has long struggled to generate a pass rush. New General Manager Chris Ballard took steps in the right direction to help generate additional pressure by adding free agent additions John Simon and Jabaal Sheard. There is a very strong argument that could be made for either of the Colts new outside linebackers being the best newcomer to the Colts defense. Additionally, the team has long struggled against the run. So, GM Chris Ballard added players like Al Woods and Johnathan...

Three Keys for the Colts vs the Browns

Three Keys for the Colts vs the Browns

1 - Pressure Deshone Kizer early and often Kizer is a young, inexperienced quarterback who has made his fair share of mistakes in his first two NFL starts. The Colts did a good job of pressuring Carson Palmer but the Colts will face a tougher offensive line this week, so they’ll need to be creative about bringing pressure. Against the Steelers, Kizer struggled to decipher blitzes and made some poor errors throughout the game. The Colts need to bring the heat against Kizer early on so that they can rattle him and affect his confidence. Jabaal Sheard and John Simon should see a lot of...
