With a win against the Titans, the Colts managed to overcome unprecedented team injuries and their worst five game series since 2002 for a NFL record (tie) ninth consecutive playoff berth, and their seventh AFC South Championship in the last eight years. Peyton Manning was able to get through his toughest stretch of games since his rookie year and somehow Indy has managed to enter January with the three seed in the AFC.
It is extremely important for Colts fans to step back and think about the gravity of this accomplishment. Frankly, this team had no business overcoming all of the adversity it has faced in a sixteen game season. More >
Colts fans have watched in horror as a team that entered the season as one of the most talented groups Indianapolis has put together in quarterback Peyton Manning’s career has fallen into mediocrity and failed to continue an NFL record streak of consecutive 12-win seasons. Many expected the stretch of games against the Eagles, Patriots, Chargers, and Cowboys would be difficult, but dropping all four games is not something Colts teams have done in the past.
This uncharacteristic run of losses has understandably caused Colts fans to panic. The blame game is in full force, and fans are scrambling to find answers to resolve the issues in Indianapolis before the 2011 season begins. More >

Colts Practice Squad Shuffle Continues
Aaron Wilson of the National Football Post reports that the Colts have released wide receiver Ray Small from the practice squad and replaced him with wide receiver Kole Heckendorf. Heckendorf has bounced around the league from Green Bay (originally signed as an undrafted free agent), to Detroit and Seattle, but was most recently cut by the San Diego Chargers. Heckendorf was North Dakota State’s top receiver for four years, but at 6-foot 2-inches tall and only 191 pounds, his frame is alarmingly small to play against NFL defenders.
The Colts also re-signed wide receiver Chris Brooks to the practice squad after he cleared waivers in the move re-sign Chip Vaughn to the active roster.

Colts Cut Kick Returner Kenny Moore, Swap Practice Squad Running Backs
Rotoworld reports that Kenny Moore, the Colts kick and punt returner who fumbled twice – one of which resulted in a turnover – in Sunday’s contest against the Washington Redskins, has been released. NFL.com indicates that Indianapolis also parted ways with practice squad running back Brandon Minor, and replaced him with running back Josh Vaughan.
Vaughan is a beastly rusher compared to a typical Colts back. When one considers that recent addition Andre Brown is an inch taller and ten pounds heavier than Joseph Addai, the knowledge that Vaughan is eight pounds heavier still (6-feet 232 pounds) puts him into perspective. More >
