Stephen Morris was both a hero and a goat for the Indianapolis Colts in a matter of minutes on Saturday Night!  He threw a TD pass in the 4th quarter to give the Colts a 18-17 lead.  On the next play the Colts decided to go for two and Morris through a horrible pass that was intercepted by CB Anthony Levine of the Ravens and he returned it all the way to the opposing end zone for a two point conversion!  Andrew Luck started this game and he was sharp in completing all 8 of his pass attempts, good for 71 yards without a TD pass or INT.  He also carried the ball 2 times for 12 yards (6.0 ypc) in this game.  Scott Tolzien was next up and he completed 13 of 18 passes for 107 yards with 1 TD pass and 0 INTs.  He also carried the ball 1 time for -1 yard in this game.  Stephen Morris finished up at QB in this game for the Colts by completing 7 of 11 passes for 66 yards with 1 TD pass and 0 INTs.  He also carried the ball 1 time for 26 yards in this game.  Jordan Todman rushed for 22 yards on 5 carries (4.4 ypc) and he caught 1 pass for 4 yards.  Robert Turbin was also busy with 7 carries for 18 yards (2.6 ypc) and he also caught 1 pass for 7 yards.  Trey Williams only carried the ball 1 time for 5 yards in this game, but he also caught 2 passes for 13 yards (6.5 avg) with 1 TD grab.  WR Phillip Dorsett (3 rec, 37 yards), TE Erik Swoope (3 rec, 36 yards), WR Chester Rogers (5 rec, 31 yards) and WR Tevaun Smith (2 rec, 18 yards, TD) led the way in the passing game for the Colts.  The Colts finished up with 93 yards rushing on 23 carries (4.0 ypc).  They also completed 28 of 37 passes (75.7%) for 233 yards with 2 TD passes and 0 INTs (110.6 QB Rating).

The Indianapolis Colts lose CB Vontae Davis for a while

Blogged under Big Colts News,Bloglockers,Front Page,General Colts Chatter,Injury Reports by joelapinski on Tuesday 23 August 2016 at 1:36 pm

The Indianapolis Colts have lost 28-year old CB Vontae Davis for at least the first month of the 2016 season due to ligament damage in his ankle.  Davis played in 16 games for the Colts last year and he had 48 tackles, 4 interceptions and 16 passes defensed.  Davis has now played in 57 games in his first four years with the Colts and he has 187 tackles, 1 sack, 2 forced fumbles, 1 fumble recovery, 12 interceptions and 54 passes defensed.  This is a big blow to the D, as Davis is a pretty darn good CB.

Chuck Pagano is a solid head coach for the Indianapolis Colts

Blogged under Bloglockers,Coaching,Front Page,General Colts Chatter by joelapinski on Tuesday 16 August 2016 at 4:37 pm

The Indianapolis Colts were smart to retain 55-year old head coach Chuck Pagano in the off-season.  He was rumored to be on a very, very hot seat before getting a contract extension from the Colts.  The Colts were in the playoff hunt right up until the final game last year.  The Colts used five QBs last year with three of them starting games.  Pagano won the season finale last year with Josh Freeman and Ryan Lindley, who were both signed early that week, having not played a snap until that game in 2015!  The Colts were 8-8 (50%) last year.  Pagano is now 41-23 (64.1%) during the regular season in his first four years as the head coach of the Colts.  He is also 3-3 (50%) in the playoffs as the head coach of the Colts.
