Mathis is back!

Colts OLB Robert Mathis (back) will return for Sunday's game against the Patriots.

Mathis, who has six sacks in just five games played this season, will start opposite Dwight Freeney. Jerry Hughes goes back to a rotational role.

That's some good news at least.

I feel a little better that Mathis is back.

Mathis and Freeney will definitely be needed to slow down Brady and the Pats offense.

Great news!

It'll be interesting to see how this defense steps it up a little more with Mathis and Freeney out there and Chapman possibly being on the field at the same time.

Whoever we put on them it's a matchup nightmare. Pass rushing the source might be the only option. I get the feeling it's going to be a bit of a shoot out but we don't have as much firepower to work with. Should make for a good watch though.

Depends on the formation, I don't see the Colts using 3-4 against 4 wide. On those plays I think we will see Vaughn, Butler, Gordy, and S. Brown.

Best news of the week so far!

At least or D seems getting better for Sunday. Still have concerns on CB. Wonder if Vontae Davis would be back.

Good News.

Funny how the Guy who's been most, LEADS the Team in Sacks. Now either he's just that Good, or somebody isn't playing to their Full Potential

Good to see Brady will have to deal with the same old headaches, but only now coming from standing LBs.

Maybe they can start racking up some INTs instead of Sacks. Let Redding get the sacks!!!

Maybe I'm missing it, but I haven't seen Freeney or Mathis in Coverage much. Am I missing it, or are they pass rushing every time?

Now just imagine if Chapman commands a double team as well?

I just got giddy. Like really giddy.

Gavin, when I check the Colts website, they haven't posted an injury report for week 11 yet. Is it possible you are/were still seeing last weeks?

    • No, not at all. Injuries are the only thing they do report fast.    Last year and the year before that and the year before that they would tweet out updates anytime a play was made, they would tweet out anytime a player looks good or bad, and nearly everytime you'd refresh the browser there would be plenty of updates. This year? They take 20 to 30 minutes to tweet any updates. And when they do tweet its something vague. 
    • Why?  Because they did not tell you Langford's status in the half second after it happened?    
    • Thank you.  My favorite thing about the interview was : " Hope so, hope so. But that’s definitely been a point of focus for me this offseason, just getting better at rushing the passer, because it was almost embarrassing for me last year — at least coming from college, where whenever I worked one of my moves, I kind of expected to beat the guy. In the league, I guess you kind of have to accept that the dudes across from you are getting paid quite a bit, too. You’re not going to win every single time, so that’s definitely been a focal point for me, working on that this offseason for sure. "  
    • Baltimore should Thank Charles Dickens for the name of there football team as well as Cleveland for there team simply put the team & name come from outside Baltimore . They celebrate a team & name whose origins are from elsewhere while trying to tell Indianapolis Colts fans how Colts history & a Lombardi belong to there city .    “You will be greatly shocked and grieved,” Charles Dickens wrote to a friend in 1841, “to hear that the Raven is no more!” His pet raven, Grip, had died. At the behest of his children, Dickens wrote poor Grip in his most recent book, Barnaby Rudge, maintaining in its pages Grip’s name and his loquacious powers of imitating human speech. In 1842, Edgar Allan Poe shook hands with Charles Dickens in Philadelphia, and spoke about Barnaby Rudge, which Poe had recently reviewed with the criticism that Dickens should have given the raven a prophetic presence in the story. In 1845, a prophetic raven was penned into existence, this time by the American author. The creation spawned reproach itself, as some judged Mr. Poe as lying in the shadow of Mr. Dickens, as may be derived from James R. Lowell’s journalistic jingle: Here comes Poe with his raven, like Barnaby Rudge,
      Three-fifths of him genius and two-fifths sheer fudge. 170 years later, however, nearly everyone knows Poe’s raven, and nearly no one knows Dickens’—or even Barnaby Rudge’s, for that matter. Grip the raven is forgotten; another raven holds the world in its grip: the raven named Nevermore. As Poe purposefully reincarnated Dickens’ merry raven into his macabre ravings, so too do people purposefully reincarnate the relentless madness of Poe’s raven into their own ravings—making them beautiful in their terror. Your welcome for the history lesson interesting as it might be , Baltimore of old & new was made by others in other cities & enjoyed by many who created nothing much without the help of others so that Baltimore could call it its own , history evolves those who fail to study it do not .

He very likely is either asking to much or teams think he will ask to much after he signs a minimal contract after it expires. Plus there are not many teams with much money actually. Some are over the cap even
