The big wow came on a straight go route, when Vontae Davis blinked and Phillip Dorsett was 10 yards behind him cradling a perfectly thrown bomb from Andrew Luck for what would’ve been an 80-yard touchdown pass if they were keeping stats. That was exactly the kind of play you...
Given the weapons at his disposal, Pep Hamilton’s optimism is perfectly understandable. To an offense that franked third in total yards and sixth in scoring last season, the Colts added proven veteran free agents in running back Frank Gore and wide receiver Andre Johnson, and...
