Colts Trounce Jaguars in 37-3 Road Victory

The Indianapolis Colts more than made up for a sluggish start. After falling behind 3-0, they proceeded to trounce the Jaguars 37-3 on Sunday. But the numbers aren’t as good as they first appear. They’re better. You see, had the Colts held the Jags to just 205 yards of total offense that would have been […]

Colts Run Over ‘Niners, Win 27-7

There would be no biceps kissing for Colin Kaepernick on Sunday. That’s because the normally mobile and elusive quarterback who helped lead the 49ers to a Super Bowl last season was under constant duress by a stifling Colts defense. Despite playing without two ket starters, safety Laron Landry and linebacker Pat Angerer, the Colts’ defense […]

The Legend Classic Irvington Cafe is Legen– Wait for it… Dary

Season 9 of How I Met Your Mother premieres tonight and I’ve got Barney Stinson on the mind.

Colts Acquire RB Trent Richardson in Blockbuster Trade

“Next man up” is the guiding principle at the Colts complex. Problem is, the “next man” wasn’t on the roster when starting running back, Vic Ballard, went down with a season-ending ACL injury in a no-contact practice drill, at least not as far as the front office was concerned. That all changed Tuesday, when the […]

The good news is that they won. The bad news is that they looked just average in doing so against an opponent widely considered to be one of the worst teams in the league. But as Andrew Luck said, “A win is a win is a win.” The Colts eked out a 21-17 win following […]
