Andrew Luck Seeking Improvements to Take Indianapolis Colts to the Next Level

FOXBORO, MA – JANUARY 18: Andrew Luck #12 of the Indianapolis Colts looks to throw a pass during the first quarter against the New England Patriots in the 2015 AFC Championship Game at Gillette Stadium on January 18, 2015 in Foxboro, Massachusetts. (Photo by Al Bello/Getty Images)
In 2014, Andrew Luck finished in the Top 5 for passing yards (4,761) and touchdowns (41) among all NFL quarterbacks and led the Indianapolis Colts to their third consecutive playoff birth. Even though the former No. 1 overall draft pick fell one win short of his first Super Bowl appearance, Luck provided consistent production last season that would otherwise draw consideration of a career year for most NFL quarterbacks.
Luck’s success had helped him evolve into a well-known athlete beyond his franchise tag, especially after breaking Peyton Manning’s franchise record for single-season passing yards last December. The 25 year-old not only impressed the Colts’ coaching staff near the conclusion of OTAs, but …

Indianapolis Colts Long Snapper Matt Overton Clowns on Rejected Bachelor Cupcake on Twitter

I am not ashamed to admit it–I dig watching the Bachellorette. It is trash television at its best. How on Earth these guys can come on this show and honestly fall in love with someone they know full well is having deep, intimate conversations (and moments) with a bunch of other dudes is beyond me. No, saying that you accept it as part of the process of the show is not an acceptable excuse.So when Chris, aka Cupcake, was dumped on Monday night’s episode and cried like a baby I found it amusing.via TwitterRead more »

Colts’ Moncrief hopes to showcase big-play ability in 2015

On a team loaded with offensive talent, Indianapolis Colts wide receiver Donte Moncrief has a simple goal for 2015: Get on the field any way possible.
As part of a wide receiver corps featuring Andre Johnson, T.Y. Hilton and 2015 first-rounder Phillip Dorsett, among others, Moncrief said he brings his own unique skillset that he hopes will help him stand out this season.
“Being able to catch the ball and explode, and not let one guy tackle you,” Moncrief said, via the team’s official website. “My goal is just to get on the field and make plays for our team—special teams, offense, it (doesn’t) matter. I want to make those plays for (Andrew) Luck, all those small plays that I made mistakes on. Now that I know what to do, it should be much easier and I should make those plays.”
The former third-round pick out of Arkansas caught 32 passes for 444 yards and three touchdowns as a rookie. His head coach, Chuck Pagano, said he’s anxious to see how Moncrief progresses in his second season….

Three interesting stats on Andrew Luck that you need to know

The Indianapolis Colts will enter the 2015 season as one of the early AFC favorites to reach the Super Bowl.
Yes, the New England Patriots and Denver Broncos will be talked about because of Tom Brady and Peyton Manning; but there is a new gunslinger in town who is ready to take his thrown on top of the AFC quarterbacks.
Andrew Luck is entering his fourth year, and he has already made most Colts fans forget about the Peyton era.
He lead the league in touchdown passes last year with 40, but it is these three stats that you might not know about Luck that helped him become one of the best quarterbacks last year.
1. Deep Ball Passing.
No quarterback last year threw the long ball more than Luck. His 89 attempts of 20 of more yards down field were first in the league. The next closest? Ben Roethlisberger with 79.
Luck completed 39 of those passes, also tops in the league for 1,387 yards. Again tops in the league.
His 12 touchdowns were only second to Tony Romo with 14.
When Pep Hamilton was brought in prior to the 2

Indianapolis Colts: Offensive line projection

The Indianapolis Colts have had a problem with their offensive line stability since the beginning of time, it seems.
And this year, it’s already started in an uneven way. Offensive tackle Gosder Cherilus’ health is up in the air as the season approaches, and the back-up plan isn’t clear as of yet.
So far, the Colts have had Jack Mewhort filling in for him, which could be the smartest move. However, Mewhort looked really good at left guard, next to Anthony Castonzo, last year and I would like to see him stay put.
The player that could fit nicely at that right tackle position would be Joe Reitz.
Reitz has proven that he is a solid offensive lineman, but never seems to get the necessary love from his coaches.
Reitz played during the playoff stretch in which the offensive line actually looked competent for once.
And the center of that group was Khaled Holmes, who should be able to earn that spot once again once the season starts.
He is a smart player, who is going into his third year, and finally has the

Denver Broncos Should Look to Sign WR Reggie Wayne

Reggie Wayne is still in free agency, and there is a chance that he will decide to retire from the NFL rather than sign with a new team for the 2015 season. Even though that is a possibility, he would likely jump at the chance to play for one more season if the right team and opportunity came up. There is one team that he would likely love to sign with, and that team is the Denver Broncos.
Reuniting with Peyton Manning for one more season would be incredibly special for the former star receiver. He had the best years of his career playing with Manning as his quarterback, and finishing his career with one more season alongside of him would be a perfect ending.
During the 2014 season with the Indianapolis Colts, Wayne ended up catching 64 passes for 779 yards and two touchdowns.
Those numbers alone prove that he is still capable of putting up solid numbers. Denver already has both Demaryius Thomas and Emmanuel Sanders on their roster, but they allowed Wes Welker to leave in free agenc…

Five reasons the Colts can win Super Bowl 50

Ryan Grigson was busy orchestrating the perfect offseason for the Indianapolis Colts this year, and they are viewed as one of the top contenders to win Super Bowl 50. They are without question one of the most dominant teams in the NFL on paper, but translating that to the field is much more difficult. It is going to be a very entertaining and exciting season, and it ill be interesting to see what ends up happening for the Colts.
There aren’t any teams in the AFC that look better all-around than the Colts, but their main competition will come from the NFC if they do reach the Super Bowl. Teams like the Green Bay Packers and Seattle Seahawks are going to be very tough for the Colts to beat, but they are now without question worthy of being ranked among them.
Needless to say, it is going to be a very interesting 2015 season across the entire NFL.
That being said, if the Colts live up to their full potential there is nothing holding them back from winning Super Bowl 50. Andrew Luck…

Only Two Teams Travel Less Than The Indianapolis Colts During 2015 NFL Season

The Indianapolis Colts want their furthest road trip of the season to come on the last day of the NFL season — postseason that is. On February 7, 2016, Super Bowl 50 will be hosted in the San Francisco Bay Area at Levi’s Stadium in Santa Clara, California.
According to an article posted by CBSSports.com, the Colts rank 30th out of 32 teams in estimated miles traveled for the upcoming 2015-16 season. The Colts have zero road games with travel more than 2,000 miles and only the Washington Redskins and Philadelphia Eagles travel less than them in the upcoming campaign.
With training camps approaching, below are the three most expensive Indianapolis Colts road tickets on the secondary market according to TiqIQ.com, along with their corresponding travel times.

Colts’ Coby Fleener not worried about contract

Coby Fleener enters the final year of his contract with the Indianapolis Colts with a pretty compelling argument to make.
Fleener’s 129 receptions through his first three seasons are the most of any Colts’ tight end in team history. For a franchise that has featured the likes of Hall of Famer John Mackey and one of Peyton Manning’s favorite targets, Dallas Clark, that’s quite an accomplishment. 
Last season, Fleener and Dwayne Allen, also a pending free agent, became the first pair of tight ends in NFL history with at least eight touchdown receptions each for the same team. 
Both Fleener and Allen join T.Y. Hilton as key members of the Colts’ offense in the last year of their contracts. Keeping everyone beyond this season may be difficult, but the former second-round pick in 2012 said he’s more concerned with perfecting his craft than he is with his contract.
“I’m not worrying about that,’’ Fleener said, via Indy Sports Central’s Mike Chappell. “This year for me is just about making…

Dallas Cowboys should consider signing RB Ahmad Bradshaw

The Dallas Cowboys are coming out of a tough offseason in which they lost star running back DeMarco Murray. It is a big setback for a team that was one of the best teams in the NFC last year. Murray put up huge numbers throughout the 2014 season, and the Cowboys relied on the running game a lot to take pressure off of Tony Romo and the aerial attack.
Murray ended up rushing for 1,845 yards and 13 touchdowns on 392 carries. Those numbers show exactly how much of a workhorse he was, and why there are major concerns about whether or not the Cowboys have done enough to replace him.
At this point in time, Dallas is looking at entering the season with Joseph Randle and Darren McFadden as the top two running backs on their roster. Nothing against either Randle or McFadden, but neither player is dependable for the Cowboys as a starter. Both players have had their issues, with McFadden having health concerns and Randle getting into some trouble off the field.
If the Cowboys decide that …

5 Most Important Players for Indianapolis Colts’ Super Bowl Hopes

The Indianapolis Colts have been extremely busy this offseason, and are considered to be one of the Super Bowl favorites heading into 2015. General manager Ryan Grigson was aggressive in free agency, and the Colts made quite a few upgrades to both sides of the football. There is no question that the Colts have the potential to win a championship, but they will need five players in particular to step up in order to make those goals a reality.
1. Andrew Luck, Quarterback
Needless to say, everything starts with the quarterback in the NFL these days. Andrew Luck is one of the most dominant quarterbacks in the game, and is looking to take the final leap into the elite group of players at the position that includes Aaron Rodgers, Peyton Manning and Tom Brady. Taking that leap would also make the Colts the best team in the AFC on paper.
Luck has to figure out how to take care of the football better than he has so far in his three NFL seasons. He is always looking to make a play, which can …

Indianapolis Colts offensive coordinator ranked as one of the best in the NFL

According to NFL.com, Pep Hamilton of the Indianapolis Colts is one of the best offensive coordinators in the NFL.
Bucky Brooks landed Hamilton as the eighth best offensive coordinator in the NFL right now.

Last season under Hamilton, the Colts ranked as the number one passing offense at 305 yards per game, and third overall with 406 yards per game. Andrew Luck lead the league in touchdown passes with 40. That is a big jump from the 2013 season, Hamilton’s first with the team.
In 2013 the Colts were 15th in total offense with just 341 yards per game, and were 17th in passing yards per game with just 232 yards per game.
