30-year old CB Darius Butler has been trying to fight through injuries this year for the Indianapolis Colts.  He has played in 7 games for the Colts so far this year and he has 25 tackles, 1 forced fumble, 2 interceptions and 3 passes defensed.  He has now played in 62 games in his first five years with the Colts and he has 206 tackles, 6 forced fumbles, 3 fumble recoveries, 11 interceptions (3 returned for TDs, 199 return yards), 38 passes defensed and 3 tackles for a loss.  The Colts really need Butler to stay healthy the rest of the way in 2016, as he is one of the best playmakers in the Colts’ secondary.

Andrew Luck is hanging in there so far in 2016 for the Indianapolis Colts

Blogged under Bloglockers,Front Page,General Colts Chatter,Steppin Up by joelapinski on Saturday 19 November 2016 at 6:57 pm

27-year old QB Andrew Luck‘s right shoulder is barking right now and that comes as little surprise.  Luck has been sacked 33 times this year for a loss of 208 yards, with both lead the NFL.  But, Andrew Luck keeps playing well despite the beating he takes from week to week.  He has played in 9 games (all starts) for the Indianapolis Colts so far this year and he has completed 221 of 347 passes (63.7%) for 2,565 yards with 17 TD passes and 7 INTs (93.9 QB Rating).  Luck has also carried the ball 43 times for 224 yards (5.2 ypc) with 1 TD run so far this year.  The Colts need to start blocking better for Luck because the dropoff from him to 29-year old backup Scott Tolzien is huge.

Luck has now played in 64 games (all starts) in his first five years with the Colts and he has completed 1,445 of 2,453 passes (58.9%) for 17,403 yards with 118 TD passes and 62 INTs (86.2 QB Rating).  Luck has also carried the ball 265 times for 1,325 yards (5.0 ypc) with 13 TD runs so far in his career.  Luck is #4 in passing yards (260 behind Bert Jones) and he is also #4 in TD passes (4 behind Bert Jones) in Colts’ history.  Luck is also #23 in rushing yards and he is tied for #20 in TD catches in Colts’ history.  Luck will have to stay healthy and productive for a long time in order to catch Peyton Manning (54,828 passing yards, 399 TD passes) or Johnny Unitas (39,768 passing yards, 287 TD passes) in the Indianapolis/Baltimore Colts’ record book!

Blogged under Bloglockers,Front Page,General Colts Chatter,Steppin Up by joelapinski on Wednesday 9 November 2016 at 5:07 pm

The Indianapolis Colts are getting solid production out of their TEs so far this year in 2016.  26-year old Jack Doyle has been the best TE on the team so far this year.  Doyle has played in 9 games (8 starts) for the Colts so far this year and he has caught 36 passes for 379 yards (10.5 avg) with 4 TD grabs.  He has caught 36 of the 45 (80%) passes thrown in his direction so far this year, showing off an awesome pair of hands!  26-year old Dwayne Allen has been a little banged up so far this year.  He has played in 7 games (all starts) for the Colts so far this year and he has caught 19 passes for 207 yards (10.9 avg) with 2 TD grabs.  Allen has caught 19 of 29 (65.5%) passes so far this year.  24-year old Erik Swoope is a very good looking TE, as he is big and fast!  He has played in 9 games (3 starts) for the Colts so far this year and he has caught 7 passes for 130 yards (18.6 avg).  He has caught 7 of 12 passes (58.3%) thrown in his direction so far this year.  This is a pretty rock solid trio for the Colts, so things are looking up right now and down the road for their TEs.

The Indianapolis Colts only have 14 sacks so far this year, but you can’t blame 31-year old OLB Erik Walden for that!  Walden has played in 8 games for the Colts so far this year and he has 20 tackles, 6 sacks, 1 tackle for a loss and 2 forced fumbles.  So he has 42.9% from the Colts’ sacks so far this year!  Walden has now played in 53 games in his first four years with the Colts and he has 144 tackles, 18 sacks, 16 tackles for a loss, 5 forced fumbles, 1 fumble recovery and 3 passes defensed.  The Colts need Walden to keep up the good work moving forward.

33-year old inside linebacker D’Qwell Jackson is still a tackling machine for the Indianapolis Colts.  He has played in 8 games for the Colts so far this year and he has 51 tackles, 4 tackles for a loss, 2 fumble recoveries and 2 passes defensed.  Jackson has now played in 40 games in his first three years with the Colts and he has 341 tackles, 7 sacks, 19 tackles for a loss, 2 forced fumbles, 6 fumble recoveries, 1 interception (he returned it for a TD) and 12 passes defensed.  The Colts need him to keep up the good work the rest of the way in 2016!

The Indianapolis Colts are getting solid work from their running game in 2016-17

Blogged under Bloglockers,Front Page,General Colts Chatter,Steppin Up by joelapinski on Friday 21 October 2016 at 4:58 pm

The Indianapolis Colts have been pretty effective running the ball so far this year, as they are averaging 101.8 yards rushing per game and 4.2 yards per carry so far this year.  33-year old RB Frank Gore has been solid despite getting older, as he has played in 6 games (all starts) for the Colts so far this year in which he has carried the ball 100 times for 434 yards (4.3 ypc) with 2 TD runs.  Gore has also caught 15 passes for 72 yards (4.8 ypc) with 1 TD grab so far this year.  Last weekend, Gore had his best game of the season, carrying the ball 22 times for 106 yards (4.8 ypc) and he also caught 1 pass for 2 yards in the Colts 26-23 O.T. loss to the Texans.  26-year old RB Robert Turbin is Gore’s top backup.  He has played in 5 games (0 starts) for the Colts so far this year and he has carried the ball 12 times for 27 yards (2.3 ypc) with 1 TD run.  He has also caught 8 passes for 40 yards (5.0 avg) so far this year.  23-year old undrafted rookie RB Josh Ferguson was the star of training camp, but he hasn’t run the ball too well in limited chances.  He has played in 6 games (0 starts) for the Colts so far this year and he has carried the ball 8 times for 8 yards (1.0 ypc).  He also has caught 19 passes for 127 yards (6.7 avg) so far this year.  27-year old QB Andrew Luck has pitched in with 132 yards rushing on 22 carries (6.0 ypc) with 1 TD run so far this year.  The Colts would probably like it if Luck ran the ball less, but a lot of the time he is taking off because his pass protection was breaking down.

The Indianapolis Colts are getting solid work out of their return men

Blogged under Bloglockers,Front Page,General Colts Chatter,Steppin Up by joelapinski on Saturday 15 October 2016 at 4:21 am

The Indianapolis Colts are getting solid work out of their return men so far in 2016!  23-year old WR Quan Bray has been one of the better return men in the NFL so far this year.  Bray has returned 6 punts for 51 yards (8.5 avg) and 7 kickoffs for 181 yards (25.9 avg) so far this year for the Colts.  26-year old RB Jordan Todman has returned 3 kickoffs for 64 yards (21.3 avg) so far this year, which is pretty solid.  26-year old WR T.Y. Hilton has returned 1 kickoff for 0 yards so far this year.  The Colts have returned 6 punts for 51 yards (8.5 avg) and 11 kickoffs for 245 yards (22.3 avg) so far this year.

Blogged under Bloglockers,Front Page,General Colts Chatter,Steppin Up by joelapinski on Saturday 15 October 2016 at 4:16 am

27-year old QB Andrew Luck is proving how tough he is so far this year for the Indianapolis Colts.  He has been sacked 20 times already so far this year.  If the O-Line doesn’t start blocking better soon, Luck is going to get hurt like he did last year.  Luck has played in 5 games (all starts) for the Colts so far this year and he has completed 131 of 205 passes (63.9%) for 1,469 yards with 10 TD passes and 3 INTs (95.4 QB Rating).  He has also carried the ball 15 times for 79 yards (5.8 ypc) so far this year.  Luck has been a tad inconsistent, as he has been outstanding in every other game so far this year!  In Games #1, #3 and #5, Luck has completed 83 of 123 passes (67.5%) for 1,038 yards with 7 TD passes and 1 INT.  He has also carried the ball 8 times for 34 yards (4.3 ypc) in those games.

The Indianapolis Colts only have four sacks as a team so far this year!  But, you can’t blame 31-year old LB Erik Walden for that.  Walden has played in 3 games for the Colts so far this year and he has 9 tackles, 3 sacks and 2 forced fumbles.  Walden has now played in 48 games in his first four years with the Colts and he has 133 tackles, 15 sacks, 15 tackles for a loss, 5 forced fumbles, 1 fumble recovery and 3 passes defensed.  The Colts need Walden to keep up the good work!

27-year old QB Andrew Luck got the hell literally beat out of him last year for the Indianapolis Colts.  He only lasted 7 games (all starts) for the Colts last year in which he completed 162 of 293 passes (55.3%) for 1,881 yards with 15 TD passes and 12 INTs (74.9 QB Rating).  He also carried the ball 33 times for 196 yards (5.9 ypc) last year.  Last week, Luck looked like his old self, as he completed 31 of 47 passes (66%) for 385 yards with 4 TD passes and 0 INTs (119.5 QB Rating).  He also carried the ball 3 times for 21 yards (7.0 ypc) in this game.  Luck could be in for a huge season for the Colts, as long as he can stay healthy!
