The Indianapolis Colts are in great shape at WR for 2010

Blogged under Bloglockers,Front Page,General Colts Chatter,Positional Previews by admin on Wednesday 21 July 2010 at 10:47 am

31-year old Reggie Wayne is showing no signs of slowing down any time soon for the Colts.  He played in 16 games (all starts) for the Colts last year and he caught 100 passes for 1,264 yards (12.6 avg) with 10 TD grabs.  Wayne has now played in 141 games (128 starts) in his 10 years with the Colts and he has caught 676 passes for 9,393 yards (13.9 avg) with 63 TD grabs.  Wayne has made 4 Pro Bowls in his NFL career and he will likely make a fifth one in 2010.

23-year old speed burner Pierre Garcon really stepped up when Anthony Gonzalez went down to injury early last year.  Garcon played in 14 games (13 starts) for the Colts last year and he caught 47 passes for 765 yards (16.3 avg) with 4 TD grabs.  He has now played in 28 games (13 starts) in his two years with the Colts and he has caught 51 passes for 788 yards (15.5 avg) with 4 TD grabs.  Garcon was huge for the Colts last season and he will be again in 2010 making his college Mount Union proud.

24-year old Austin Collie really played well as a rookie for the Colts in 2009.  He played in 16 games (5 starts) for the Colts last year and he caught 60 passes for 676 yards (11.3 avg) with 7 TD grabs.  The sky is the limit for Collie but he will likely be the #3 or #4 WR for the Colts in 2010.

25-year old Anthony Gonzalez appears ready to return to action in 2010.  He hurt his knee in the Colts’ first game and it ended his season without a catch.  Gonzalez has played in 30 games (12 starts) in his three years with the Colts and he has caught 94 passes for 1,240 yards (13.2 avg) with 7 TD grabs.  If Gonzalez is healthy in 2010 the Colts’ passing game will be even more potent than before.

PROJECTED GRADE FOR THE COLTS WRs in 2010:  A

The Indianapolis Colts are in good shape at TE for 2010

Blogged under Bloglockers,Front Page,General Colts Chatter,Positional Previews by admin on Saturday 10 July 2010 at 2:00 pm

I’ve been saying for years that 31-year old TE Dallas Clark was one of the best players in the NFL.  Last season he proved me right in a big way as Clark stepped his game up to a Pro Bowl level.  He played in 16 games (all starts) for the Colts last season and he caught 100 passes for 1,106 yards (11.1 avg) with 10 TD grabs.  Clark has now played in 98 games (95 starts) in his seven years with the Colts and he has caught 356 passes for 4,188 yards (11.8 avg) with 41 TD grabs.  Clark has a great set of hands and he’s fast enough to exploit defenses deep and down the middle.  Look for him to have another outstanding year in 2010.

25-year old Jacob Tamme is more of a blocker than Clark is.  Tamme played in 16 games (1 start) for the Colts last season and he caught 3 passes for 35 yards (11.7 avg).  He has now played in 28 games (1 start) in two years with the Colts and he has caught 6 passes for 47 yards (7.8 avg).  Don’t look for him to catch too many passes in 2010 unless Clark gets injured.

25-year old Tom Santi got off to a fast start last season before injuring himself.  Santi played in 3 games (2 starts) for the Colts last season and he caught 8 passes for 107 yards (13.4 avg).  He has now played in 9 games (4 starts) in his two years with the Colts and he has caught 18 passes for 171 yards (9.5 avg) with 1 TD grab.  Santi has a nice upside but he needs to stay healthy to show it.

PROJECTED GRADE FOR THE COLTS TEs in 2010:  A

Gijon Robinson will be the fullback when the Indianapolis Colts use one

Blogged under Bloglockers,Front Page,General Colts Chatter,Positional Previews by admin on Saturday 3 July 2010 at 7:25 pm

The Colts don’t use a fullback much but when they do it will likely be Gijon Robinson.  Robinson is a converted TE who is a decent run blocker.  His best skill is as a receiver which shouldn’t surprise anyone.  He played in 13 games (10 starts) for the Colts last season and he caught 9 passes for 62 yards (6.9 avg).  Robinson has played in 28 games (24 starts) in his first two years with the Colts and he has caught 28 passes for 228 yards (8.1 avg).  He has yet to carry the ball in a regular season game and I don’t think he will this season either.
