The Colts just didn’t play well enough to beat the Lions yesterday afternoon in Detroit.  Peyton Manning was outstanding as usual completing 12 of 15 passes for 123 yards with 1 TD pass.  Rookie Curtis Painter finished up this game by completing 9 of 14 passes for 145 yards with 1 interception.  Joseph Addai led the Colts in rushing in this game with 22 yards on 7 carries (3.1 ypc).  Donald Brown pitched in with 16 yards on 5 carries (3.2 ypc) with 1 TD run.  WR Pierre Garcon led the Colts in receiving in this game with 82 yards on 2 catches (41.0 avg).  TE Dallas Clark was also very good in this game as he caught 6 passes for 63 yards (10.5 avg) with 1 TD grab.  The Colts finished up this game with 299 yards of total offense (50 rushing, 249 passing).

The Colts’ D was led by CB Jamie Silva who had 10 tackles.  The Lions finished up with 412 yards of total offense (151 rushing, 261 passing) in this game. 

The Indianapolis Colts release LB Adam Seward

The Colts have released linebacker Adam Seward.  Seward played in 3 pre-season games for the Colts this season and he made 10 tackles.  This is a good sign for the depth of the linebacking corps heading into this season as Seward hasn’t really shown much in his NFL career to this point.

The Indianapolis Colts lose Kelvin Hayden for awhile

Blogged under Big Colts News,Bloglockers,Front Page,General Colts Chatter,Injury Reports by admin on Friday 28 August 2009 at 6:22 am

The Colts will be without CB Kelvin Hayden for the next 3-4 weeks with a hamstring problem.  Hayden played in 10 games for the Colts last season and he made 42 tackles, defensed 12 passes, forced 1 fumble and he intercepted 3 passes (one he returned for a TD).  The Colts will miss Hayden big time so they hope he will be ready soon.

The Colts have lost 24-year old OT Corey Hilliard on waivers to the Cleveland Browns.  Hilliard played in only 2 games (0 starts) for the Colts last season.   He played two years with the Colts appearing in only 5 games (0 starts).  The Colts shouldn’t miss Hilliard one bit moving forward.

Indianapolis Colts 23, Philadelphia Eagles 15

Blogged under Bloglockers,Front Page,General Colts Chatter,The Pre Season by admin on Monday 24 August 2009 at 9:22 pm

The Colts looked a lot better in this game than the opener against the Vikings.  Peyton Manning was outstanding in this game completing 10 of 14 passes for 167 yards with 2 TD passes.  Curtis Painter was also effective in this game completing 11 of 19 passes for 116 yards with 1 interception.  Lance Ball led the Colts in rushing in this game with 48 yards on 19 carries (2.5 ypc).  Reggie Wayne led the Colts in receiving in this game with 90 yards on 2 catches (45.0 avg) with a TD grab.  TE Jacob Tamme also had a good game with 60 yards on five grabs (12.0 avg).  The Colts only rushed for 62 yards on 29 carries in this game (2.1 ypc) but they also threw for 274 yards which was pretty darn solid.

DE Curtis Johnson (7 tackles, sack) and CB Dante Hughes (7 tackles) led the way for the Colts’ defense in this game.  The Colts were effective against the Eagles’ running game holding them to 23 yards on 17 carries (1.4 ypc).  But, the Eagles threw the ball at will against the Colts rolling up 320 yards in the air.

Minnesota Vikings 13, Indianapolis Colts 3

The Colts didn’t show too much in this game and it showed on the scoreboard.  Peyton Manning was quickly in and out of this game completing 1 of 2 passes for 6 yards.  Rookie Curtis Painter was solid in his first NFL game action completing 10 of 17 passes for 77 yards.  Chris Crane finished up this game completing 3 of 4 passes for 18 yards with a interception.  Rookie Donald Brown looked solid rushing for 58 yards on 5 carries (11.6 ypc) in his first NFL game.  WR John Matthews led the way in the passing game for the Colts with 3 catches for 30 yards (10.0 avg).  The Colts only finished with 142 total yards on offense and held the ball for only 21:01 of this game.

The Colts had a very poor effort on defense as the Vikings rolled up 351 total yards (198 yards rushing, 4.8 ypc).  Safety Matt Giordano led the way for the Colts in this game with 11 tackles.  LBs Michael Tauiliili and Jamie Silva were also busy in this game with 8 tackles apiece. 

The Indianapolis Colts waive Roy Hall

Blogged under Big Colts News,Bloglockers,Front Page,General Colts Chatter,Injury Reports by admin on Saturday 15 August 2009 at 10:25 pm

The Colts have waived 25-year old WR Roy Hall.  Hall played in 4 games last season for the Colts and he caught 1 whole pass for 9 yards.  This is a good sign for the Colts that Hall won’t get to stick around again in 2009.

UPDATE: Roy Hall actually cleared waivers so the Colts decided to keep him around by placing him on the Injured Reserve List.
