Colts barely edge lowly Lions

INDIANAPOLIS – Whew. That was almost embarrassing. The Colts squeaked past the hapless Lions 31-21 in a game closer than the score indicated. Maybe the Colts forgot just because the Lions were 0-13 doesn’t mean they don’t get paid to play, too.

Campaigning 101 for the blue and white

The folks who’ve been knocking on my door for the past few months tell me today’s Election Day. In honor of this highly ignored American holiday, I wanted to do a little research to see if any of the most famous campaign slogans could help inspire the Indianapolis Colts – who survived the Midterm Elections with a 4-4 record – to improve their approval ratings and squeak into the playoffs.

Indy lawyer to be next athletics director

Indianapolis attorney Fred Glass will replace Rick Greenspan as IU’s director of athletics, a source told the Indiana Daily Student on Monday night.The official announcement will be made at a press conference, which will take place at 10:15 a.m. today in the Virgil T. DeVault Alumni Center, across the street from Assembly Hall. The selection ends a three-month search for Greenspan’s successor.Glass, an IU alumnus, is a partner at Baker & Daniels, an Indianapolis-based law firm. PODCAST: Hoosier Headlines


INDIANAPOLIS ­– Four sacks, three interceptions and four fumbles: Through four quarters Sunday, the Colts looked like they had the best defense in the NFL. And they owe it all to their offense. An Indianapolis defense that was built to play with a lead finally got to play with one during Sunday’s 31-3 win against the Baltimore Ravens. By the time the Colt’s defense gave up its first first down of the game, the offense had already scored two touchdowns. That, coach Tony Dungy said, was key.


It’s fourth-and-one for the Jacksonville Jaguars, and quarterback David Garrard drops back to pass. Peyton Manning and the Colts just marched down the field and scored to put Indy up by one point, and as Garrard sits in the pocket, hae has just 29 seconds to put the Jags in field-goal range to try and eek out a win. He looks to his right and throws a pass that falls 10 yards away from the closest Jacksonville receiver.

Count your blessings, fans of the horse

Breathe out, Colts fans: A bursa sac can’t sack Peyton Manning. The face of the franchise started the Colts’ season opener Sunday night after missing the entire preseason, recovering from surgery that removed an infected bursa sac from his left knee. And the Sorgi family weeps


If this is what life in Lucas Oil Stadium is like, the Colts might want to move back to the RCA Dome. Indianapolis christened its $720-million stadium with a 29-13 Opening Day loss to the Chicago Bears — Indy’s first loss in September or October since 2004 when it lost 27-24 in its season opener against the New England Patriots. The Colts, favored by more than a touchdown, never led by more than three points and trailed the Bears for most of the game
