The former fan, Brandon Moses and Andrew Moore, give their take on everything to do with the Indianapolis Colts. The Colts "official podcast, the Podcast, covers everything from the latest news, rumors and analysis from the team, all delivered in podcast form. It covers all things Colts, from training camp, preseason, through the regular season and even the playoffs.
American professional football team based in Indianapolis, which has played in the National Football League (NFL) for the last 23 years. It is home to the Indianapolis Colts, the second-oldest professional team in the NFL and the third-longest team in NFL history.
Irsay moved the Colts to Indianapolis on March 28, 1984, where they play today at Lucas Oil Stadium. The team moved to Indy, Indiana in March 1983 with the rest of the NFL's expansion team, the New York Giants, from its original home in New Orleans, Louisiana, and its home stadium in Jacksonville, Fla. On March 29, 1985, after the team's first season in Los Angeles, Irsays and the other owners of other NFL teams in the area moved their team from New Jersey to Indiana.
The Colts struggled to qualify for the playoffs in Indianapolis for the first two seasons. The Colts would have three wins and a single playoff appearance in their first three years in Indiana.
The Colts rebounded in 2008 and won four of their next five games, including the Eric Dickerson Show, which proved his talent.
Peyton Manning dueled with brother Eli as the Colts defeated the New York Giants 38-14. Andrew Luck's Colts took an early lead with the Jacksonville Jaguars. He led the Indianapolis Colts to a 20-6 lead after three quarters with 245 yards and two touchdowns.
The Colts won 31-3 at Lucas Oil Field against the Baltimore Ravens, the Colts' first win of the season. The Colts have teamed up for their showdown against the Titans, who were 7-3, in the AFC South Divisional Game in Indianapolis.
The Colts have one of the NFL's best defenses to score against the Jags this week. The Colts win by protecting Rivers, getting their game going and wearing down the seemingly tired Jaguars team.
Jacksonville would love to pick up a win over the Colts and end a 14-game losing streak, but right now they just need to play and try to end their 14-game winning streak. Week 5 will be an emotional homecoming for Coach Tony Dungy, who will have to endure his first loss of the season when the Indianapolis Colts face the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in a Monday night road game. The Colts, according to Lageman, will all be ready to go with a playoff spot on the line.
Frangie sees it as the Colts are just losing the opener to Jacksonville and really need it and are still at home. If they don't lose in Week 1 at Jacksonville, they'll be able to win and get help.
The following season, the Colts would take a drastic approach from scratch, going so far as to name defensive end Tony Dungy as their new head coach, hoping he could build a complete team with an already-intact, standout offensive line. It would be a habit for them to lose, though, since Frank Kush was fired after the season when they were 4-11 and longtime team president Bill Polian was fired. Colts Coach Jim Caldwell can say goodbye to Peyton Manning if he decides to leave. The TonyDungy era in Indianapolis started solidly, with three wins from its first four games.
But the rust showed when the Colts fell behind 14-0 early in the first quarter against the Pittsburgh Steelers. The Colts regained the lead on a touchdown pass from Manning to Ahmad Bradshaw and held a 15-10 halftime lead. But the tide turned in the ninth week when the Seattle Seahawks defeated them 36-3 in the first game of the season.
Taking advantage of a poor punt, Luck led the Colts down the field and hit Donnie Avery with a short pass that Avery used for a touchdown in front of the stunned crowd at Ford Field. The Colts got the ball back quickly, but three incomplete passes left their defense, which had struggled all day and struggled to do anything other than give Peyton Manning his final try with 2: 17 left and needed a stop just to keep their hopes alive. Peyton was not on his game Sunday and was whistled six times, but his defense kept it in the game when Gary Brackett recovered a fumble in and around the end zone to cut it to two points.
Unfortunately for the team, they weren't and Indiana would be the winner, but Irsay took up the deal offered by the city of Indianapolis and pulled the Colts, giving his team a first-round pick in the 2012 NFL Draft and a $1.5 million dollar bonus before anyone knew what had happened. The Colts scored against the Indianapolis Colts, the chance to force overtime when Manning led a three-point touchdown drive that leveled the game and gave them the lead against the defending Super Bowl champions.
