Colts Cast: Titans Week 10 film review; latest Colts news

The Indianapolis Colts continue their heavy divisional schedule in the second half of the season with a Week 11 matchup with the Tennessee Titans this Sunday. There are some interesting matchups within this AFC South battle, including the Colts' 6th ranked scoring offense going up against the league-leading Titans defense who are only giving up 16.8 points per game. However, the Titans offense sits at 28th in the league in scoring (18.7 ppg), while the Colts defense is 26th in the league...


Colts Cast: Examining Colts first AFC South victory over Jaguars in Week 10

The Indianapolis Colts came into Sunday's matchup with the Jacksonville Jaguars holding the same record and needing to prove quite a bit on both sides of the ball. The offense needed to prove they could take it to a top passing defense, and the defense needed to prove they could stop the run and eliminate any big play situations. The Colts did both of those for spells, but ultimately this game was a mixed bag. The Colts dominated offensively in the first half, but could not sustain drives...


Horseshoes with Stephen Holder: Looking at Colts stretch run on both sides of the ball

Today Stephen Holder is back as the Colts are 3-5 and coming out of their bye against the Jacksonville Jaguars. On today's episode, Holder takes a look at the back half of the Colts season, focusing on both sides of the ball. Here is a rundown of topics that Stephen will cover in today's show.


Colts Cast: Latest Colts news; Colts updated PFF grades

The Indianapolis Colts are preparing for their Week 10 AFC South matchup with the Jacksonville Jaguars. Both teams are sitting at 3-5 and there are drastic differences in each team's offense as well as their respective defenses. One of the most interesting situations, that we haven't had the luxury of with Colts football in the past several years, is the question of how will the coaching assist in the team making a run in the second half of the season. Frank Reich has been excellent so far,...


Colts Cast: Jaguars game film review; Recognizing vulnerabilities

The Indianapolis Colts are coming off of their Week 9 bye and are headed into a Week 10 matchup with the Jacksonville Jaguars. This is the first of their two meetings in the second half of their season, and the two have identical records. Fortunately for the Colts, they do not have identical units on each side of the ball. The Colts have one of the best offenses in the league, averaging nearly 29 points per game, while the Jaguars offense isn't even touching 17 points per outing. Andrew...


Colts Cast: Examining first half of Colts season, standout draft picks w/Stephen Holder

The Indianapolis Colts are now at the midway point in the season and sitting in the middle of their bye week. The Colts now sit at 3-5, but there's a lot more to the story of the first half of their season than just their actual record. Today Matt Danely is joined by Stephen Holder to discuss exactly what we've seen from this team which is supposed to be in the beginning stages of a rebuild. Matt and Stephen take a look at some of the most recent news involving two of their 2018 draft...


Colts Cast: Colts finish strong on the road in Oakland to beat Raiders 42-28 in Week 8

The Indianapolis Colts headed into their Week 8 matchup with the Oakland Raiders with a bit of momentum, but had their work cut out for themselves on the West coast. The Colts took an early lead and looked like they might cruise past the Raiders, but the Colts defense was uninspired to say the least. Today we'll go through and discuss everything from the offensive explosion the team has been displaying lately, to the defensive consistently loose play, but also talk about their ability to...


Horseshoes with Stephen Holder: Colts finally at full strength; Why the rebuild is working

The Indianapolis Colts are set to travel West to the Oakland Raiders Sunday in their final game before the bye. With the Colts coming off of their most complete game of the season -- by far -- they potentially have another opportunity for that type of performance in Week 8. Today Stephen Holder goes in to the Colts rebuild and much more as the team prepares for their trip to The Bay. Here's a rundown of topics for today's show:


Colts Cast: Any trade deadline interest for Colts?; Raiders film review notes

The Indianapolis Colts are heading into Week 8 winners. They've blown out the Buffalo Bills and will now head west to play another team that has hit the skids in a major way. The 1-5 Oakland Raiders are the Colts final opponent before their bye week. Another important day coming, October 30th, is the NFL trade deadline. Today Matt goes into some of the names that have been tossed around as being potential trade pieces and looks at possible fits for the Colts. Most teams who are 2-5 at this...


Colts Cast: Colts put it all together in Week 7 rout of Bills

The Indianapolis Colts came into Week 7 a team with very little momentum and a 1-5 record that shows just how inconsistent the team had been up to this point. Despite playing a Buffalo Bills team with an awful offense and a middle-of-the-road defense, the Colts looked to put the mental and physical aspects together on both sides of the ball to churn out a dominating performance. Andrew Luck looked great. Marlon Mack put a second-straight game together in which he showed all of the...


Horseshoes with Stephen Holder: T.Y. Hilton's weird week; Thoughts on Reece Fountain

The Indianapolis Colts are 1-5 to start the season, as you are all well aware of by now. Today Stephen Holder is back with another great show to get you the latest on the Colts. There are a lot of aspects with this roster that deserve to be discussed. Here is a rundown of what Stephen dives into on today's Horseshoes:


Colts loss to Jets in Week 6 offers more silver lining

Thus far, through the 2018 season, the Indianapolis Colts have continued to bring disappointment. Starting the year 1-5 has featured close losses that maybe shouldn't have been losses at all, plenty of mental mistakes and a ton of inconsistency as well. On the other hand, we've seen Andrew Luck blast off from running an offense that brought a new meaning to the dink-and-dunk approach, to leading the league in attempts, currently running second in touchdown passes, sitting at eighth in...

Horseshoes with Stephen Holder: Latest on key young Colts, including Tyquan Lewis, Quincy Wilson and Anthony Walker

Stephen Holder is back with his second episode of Horseshoes with Holder. Today Stephen lays out some very interesting topics including how the injury bug has hit the Colts yet again heading into Week 6, news on some of the Colts' young key players including Tyquan Lewis, Quincy Wilson as well as the second-year linebacker Anthony Walker. Stephen touches on who has been back to practice and why that's so significant, as well as who may be stepping into those starting roles this week if some...


Colts Cast: Colts-Jets Week 6 preview with Connor Rogers; Examining Jets tendencies ahead of Week 6

The Indianapolis Colts are off to the Meadowlands for their Week 6 matchup with the New York Jets. And today we're going to get an inside look at what to expect on that front from Connor Rogers (B/R, Stick to Football). The main issue, it seems, is the massive list of Colts who are hitting the injury report in the past few weeks. The Colts have now lost their starting guard Matt Slauson, and it appears that Braden Smith will be taking over in his absence. However, there are many other...


Horseshoes with Holder: Something has to give with Colts skill positions; Latest Colts news

Today we finally get to debut our second show on the Stampede Blue podcast channel. Stephen Holder (the Athletic) has joined to host Horseshoes with Stephen Holder. Over the past couple outings, one of the primary issues with the team has been, both, the receivers having far too many drops, and the lack of a reasonable running game. Andrew Luck has been throwing the ball all over the field (121 attempts in last two weeks) lately and even Frank Reich has admitted that that can't continue for...


Colts Cast: Week 5 flash review; Tracking Colts PFF grades

The Indianapolis Colts came into their Week 5 matchup with the New England Patriots severely banged up. Making matters worse, the Colts lost several more key players on Thursday night. Nevertheless, the Colts were able to keep this game within striking distance before it got out of hand in the fourth quarter. There were several players getting important snaps towards the rest of the season, as this only improves the depth in my opinion. Matthew Adams and Zaire Franklin received large...


Colts Cast: Examining the Patriots ahead of Thursday Night Football; Matt joins "Between the Sidelines" on SiriusXM

Short week! Well, there's a lot to talk about in such a condensed week, especially on the Indianapolis Colts side of the equation. The team's injury report is pretty insane. The Colts actually already have 7 inactives for the game and only 52 on the roster less than 24 hours before game time. On one end, it's a plus-minus situation weekly any more and with only having four days between games, this isn't the ideal point in the season to face the Patriots by any means. The positive shining...


Colts Cast: Injury issues could haunt Colts in Week 5; Tracking Colts PFF grades

As the Indianapolis Colts prepare for their Week 5 matchup with the New England Patriots, their injury situation is certainly a cause for concern. They're missing their top tight end in Jack Doyle, the unquestioned defensive MVP, Darius Leonard, is in a walking boot during walk-throughs thus far and several more are possibly on the outs in this short week. The Colts (1-3) could not need this game more at this point in the season. They could potentially give their season a massive boost with...


Colts Cast: Breaking down Colts Week 4, 37-34 OT loss to Texans

The Indianapolis Colts OT loss to the Houston Texans in Week 4 will not soon be forgotten. The final play that the Colts ran offensively, though, certainly does not sum up this game nor should it. Andrew Luck put up a massive stat line (40-62, 464 yards, 4 TDs) that should quiet those saying that his arm can't do this or can't do that due to some lack of arm strength. The Colts defense had themselves a game, too, despite the fact that the Texans finished with as many points as they did....
