On September 19th, 2021 the Indianapolis Colts will host the Los Angeles Rams In this Week 2 match-up, I sought to understand our opponent and get a better idea of how they may attack our Colts.

This offseason the Colts and Rams competed off the field for the services of quarterback Matthew Stafford. In the end Stafford went to LA and now the Colts will try to make Stafford regret his trade destination. Soon we’ll know if they can do just...

Betting Against the Spread Week 2

Photo by Michael Hickey/Getty Images

I read a peer-reviewed study that warnings about the dangers of gambling addiction are largely pointless and ineffective. Gambling is a highly addictive habit and for the most part, the good word is to avoid betting or gambling on sports of any kind so that you can actually sit and enjoy this game we all love.

That said, Week 1 wasn’t a bad start for us, was it?

We hit on Thursday Night Football because we took the Cowboys and 6.5 points and got...

Colts’ left tackle Eric Fisher continues to positively progress as he looks to return to in-game action sooner rather than later.

If you thought playing against Russell Wilson and the Seattle Seahawks was a tough matchup for Indianapolis, Week 2 might be even tougher, as Matt Stafford and the Los Angeles Rams come to Lucas Oil this Sunday.

We know just how horrendous Indy’s offensive lined performed against an unproven and...

AFC South Roundup: Week 1

In some positive news for the Colts’ playoff hopes, the Titans were destroyed by the Arizona Cardinals. Derrick Henry could not get anything going throughout the game and Ryan Tannehill struggled with turnovers and pressure from Chandler Jones (who got 5 sacks!). The Titans' defense failed to contain the explosive Kyler Murray, who tore the pathetic Titans defense apart. Not a great...

Colts Sign Veteran Safety Andrew Sendejo; Add OL Anthony Coyle to the Practice Squad

Photo by Ian Johnson/Icon Sportswire via Getty Images

The Indianapolis Colts announced a few roster moves on Tuesday, as the team signed veteran safety Andrew Sendejo, while waiving cornerback Chris Wilcox in a corresponding active 53-man roster move to make room.

Sendejo was one of four safeties that the Colts reportedly worked out on Monday, and it looks like he impressed enough during his tryout.

Of course, the Colts desperately needed the additional depth—with just three safeties on...

Colts rookies Mike Strachan and Kwity Paye produce in debut

The Indianapolis Colts have spent the last four seasons overhauling an aging roster and changing schemes on both sides of the football. There have been some notable additions to the team in the draft, trades, and on the waiver wire. These moves have led the Colts down a path that has made it increasingly more difficult for rookies to make an early impact.

Perhaps no season has been a bigger indication of the home-grown talent over the...

Reich’s Best/Worst Decisions: Week 1 Vs. Seahawks

Photo by Leon Halip/Getty Images Best Decisions Getting Carson Wentz into a rythm early

The Colts' first drive looked really fluid, as the scripted plays seemed to work to perfection and Wentz was really finding his rhythm. The run game looked competent against a tough run defense and the quick passing game was getting the job done. After a stuffed Jonathan Taylor run and a screen that failed to score, Reich made the right decision and took the points. After a three and out the next...

Grading Carson Wentz’s Performance Against the Seattle Seahawks

Photo by Justin Casterline/Getty Images

What grade does Carson Wentz deserve for his performance in Indianapolis’ season-opener against the Seattle Seahawks?

Horrendous offensive line play, inconsistencies along the defensive line and in the secondary, as well as awful play from the linebacking corps are just a few of the reasons why the Colts lost their 8th straight season-opener to the Seattle Seahawks Sunday afternoon.

Frankly, there are a few more issues I could include on this...

Matchups to Watch Revisited: Week 1 Vs. Seahawks

Rock Ya-Sin had a nice start to the season, as he and the cornerbacks actually had a solid game. The passing touchdowns were the fault of the safeties and linebackers (Khari Willis and Darius Leonard, in particular). The Colts’ defense does not need Ya-Sin to turn into a prime Vontae Davis-type cornerback to be successful, but watching him holding his own, especially considering how thin the Colts are at...
