The numbers are surprising enough, given the history. The Colts rank third in the NFL in total yardage (311.1), fifth in passing yardage (214.4), ninth in rushing yardage (96.7) and fourth in scoring (19.4). On defense. That they’ve reached these previously unexplored heights...
The bowl drought will continue in 2014 for Indiana football. That much appears evident after a 56-17 drubbing at the hands of Michigan State Saturday afternoon in Bloomington. Heading into a needed off week, the Hoosiers stand at 3-4 on the season, needing to find three more...
Frankly, the Pacers have had a little too much experience with boots and crutches lately. After Danny Granger’s long knee ordeal, after Paul George’s devastated leg, the last thing this team needed to see was David West limping onto the practice court Monday with a boot on his...
If this was a glimpse into the future, it was downright scary for the rest of the NFL. This is exactly what Chuck Pagano had in mind when he brought his hybrid 3-4 from Baltimore to Indianapolis in 2012 to replace the traditional (and not entirely beloved) Cover-2 scheme of the...

For the past two years, the issue was slow starts. Now, it's faltering finishes. As well as the Colts have played during their four-game win streak, you'd be hard-pressed Monday to find a player in the locker room that felt in any way satisfied by the level of performance...
