  1. Thanks again for your help with this week's Colts Mailbag, which you can find by clicking here. PRO TIP — questions I'm growing a bit tired of/avoiding: • When will Michael Pittman Jr. be used in the red zone? • Does Parris Campbell have a chance to come back this season? • Why isn't the run game as good this year?
  2. I won’t brag too much about predicting the exact outcome of last Sunday’s win over the Packers (OK, I was off by two yards on the field goal distance), but that’s the kind of quality weekly content you’re getting with the Colts Mailbag. In all seriousness, though, huge, huge game on the horizon this Sunday against the Titans. Who’s got questions for this week’s Mailbag?
  3. I’d like to thank Peyton Manning, without whom none of this would be possible. I don’t know why, exactly, but thanks Peyton.
  4. Big matchup in Indy on Sunday between the AFC South-leading Colts (6-3) and the NFC North-leading Packers (7-2). Who's got questions leading into the matchup? Submit them here for this week's Colts Mailbag.
  5. Thanks again for all the terrific questions for this week's Colts Mailbag. I tried to dive a little deeper into the Colts' issues on third- and fourth-and-short, as well as why I am such a proponent in the quarterback sneak (well, with Jacoby Brissett in the game), and why Indy is in such better shape with T.J. Carrie backing up Kenny Moore II at nickel cornerback. Also, I took the bait on a question about Frank Reich's dental hygiene. You can read this week's Mailbag by clicking here.
  6. Big win Thursday night for the Colts, and now the team has a "mini bye week," as Philip Rivers calls it — a 10-day break before the team continues play in Week 11 against the Green Bay Packers at Lucas Oil Stadium. But that doesn't mean we're taking a break this weekend. Who's got questions for the Colts Mailbag? It'll probably be a quick turnaround — want to try to get this up tomorrow (Saturday) — so I appreciate all your help and participation, once again!
  7. Colts GM Chris Ballard tonight was a guest on 1075 The Fan’s “Colts Roundtable Live.” What were his thoughts on the first half of the season, how well the team’s defense has been playing to this point, what improvements can be made in the run game and more? Click here for the full interview.
  8. Thanks to your insightful questions, I took a couple deep dives into Sunday's game against the Ravens and tried to figure out how the Colts could take advantage of Marlon Humphrey's absence, as well as the blueprint to beating this team created in its two other losses (and a close win vs. the Eagles). That and much, much more in this week's Colts Mailbag, which you can find by clicking here. Really appreciate it again, y'all.
  9. Two 5-2 AFC contenders clash on Sunday at Lucas Oil Stadium, as the Colts, fresh off a 20-point road win over the Lions, play host to the Ravens. Who's got questions for this week's Colts Mailbag?
  10. Terrific idea. To be honest, it can be tough to do super deep dives during the season, but I’ll definitely look into this for a solid article. Thanks for sending and thinking of me.
  11. (Insert election day voting joke here) But, seriously, click here to vote for Philip Rivers for the Week 8 FedEx Air Player of the Week award, if you feel inclined. You can vote as many times as you want. And for context, here's why he's a nominee this week.
  12. Thanks again for your questions for this week’s Colts Mailbag, which you can find by clicking here. Questions on Pittman Jr., Hines, Alie-Cox, Turay and others, as well as pending free agents, the trade deadline, today’s game vs. the Lions and why Jeffrey Gorman isn’t my least favorite coworker.
  13. I can’t believe it’s Week 8 already, but here we are. What questions do you have as the Colts get ready to take on the Lions? Thanks, as always.
  14. Click here for this week’s Colts Mailbag! The bye week has provided plenty of opportunities to take a look back at the first six weeks of the season. Lots of in-depth questions this time around on Quenton Nelson pulling in the run game, three-tight end sets, slant route usage, offensive pace and more. Thanks again for the thoughtful submissions, and try to enjoy your Sunday without Colts football.
  15. They had us in the first quarter, not gonna lie. Anyway, after that dramatic come-from-behind win over the Bengals, how about some questions for the Bye Week edition of the Colts Mailbag? What's on your mind as the Colts' players and coaches (and maybe even their content creators) get a couple days to rest up for the remainder of the season?
  16. Thanks again for your awesome questions for this week's Colts Mailbag, which you can find (and dissect) by clicking here.
  17. What questions do you have as the Colts begin preparations for Sunday’s Week 6 contest against the Cincinnati Bengals? I’ll try to answer as many non-repeating inquiries as I can for this week’s Colts Mailbag. Mod Note: Reminder that only questions for the Colts Mailbag are allowed in this thread.
  18. You all continue to amaze me with your super insightful Colts questions on a weekly basis. Thanks again for your help with this week's Colts Mailbag, which you can find by clicking here. I tried to do a little more deep diving into the issues with the run game through four games, and maybe some solutions in the red zone moving forward. Through four games, I think it's fair to start eyeing trends in all three phases, but with this small of a sample size, sometimes there's not much better of an answer than "the team needs to execute and call plays better."
  19. The Colts take on the Browns this Sunday in Cleveland in what should be an intriguing matchup of a high-powered offense vs. the league's top-ranked defense. What questions do you have this week for the Colts Mailbag? Send 'em on in here.
  20. For what it's worth, Johnson isn't really being "demoted" back to the practice squad; the new rules put into place exclusively for this season allow for teams to call up guys to the active roster for games only and then the next day they go back to the practice squad (you can only do it so many times per player). The Colts did that with TE Farrod Green a couple weeks back, and then again with Johnson this past weekend.
  21. Click here. Lots of interesting comments from GM Chris Ballard on the first quarter of the season. Found comments on Rivers and Buckner particularly insightful.
  22. This was probably the best batch of Colts Mailbag questions yet. Thanks so much. Lots covered this week, including why I'm not going to worry about Jonathan Taylor's YPC average just yet, the latest on every Colts player currently on IR or the PUP list, how to implement Jack Doyle, Trey Burton & Mo Alie-Cox at the TE position, why Indy is struggling on third down and much, much more.

  23. I'll just answer this now to avoid getting a "FOR A THIRD WEEK IN A ROW" stipulation next week: it's usually pretty pointless to ask about a players' recovery weeks before he's set to come back (and by that, I mean, reporters asking Frank Reich or Chris Ballard). Kemoko Turay entered the season on the PUP list, which means he has to sit out at least the first six games of the season, so Week 8 after the bye is the earliest he can play. So maybe next week or heading into the bye week we can start to ask if he's trending in the right direction, but until then, there's not really going to be much
  24. The Colts are on a little bit of a roll, and now go on the road to take on the Chicago Bears, who do match up well against Indy in some regards, but certainly haven't had a smooth road to this point, despite their undefeated record. What questions do you have this week for the Colts Mailbag? Very interested to see what you've got this time around. Thanks as always.
