2011 Indianapolis Colts Offense:
If there's some concern with Peyton Manning, it should be his neck injury; not the fact that he threw more interceptions last year (17) than he has since his 23 picks in 2001.

Manning endured neck surgery this offseason, and because of the lockout, he wasn't able to receive the treatment he's accustomed to. He's currently on the active/PUP list, and while it's almost a certainty that he'll play in Week 1, there's a question of how much this injury is going to affect his play. Manning had knee surgery back in 2008, and he struggled as a result for the first half of the year. Something similar could occur this season.

As for Manning's actual skill, there's no need for concern. Sure, his touchdown-interception ratio and YPA were lower than usual, but it could be argued that Manning actually had one of his best seasons because of everything that happened to his team. Manning's offensive line was dreadful. Joseph Addai got hurt and there was no running game. And more importantly, Austin Collie and Dallas Clark missed a significant amount of action, forcing Manning to work with practice-squad players like Blair White. Anyone who re-watches Manning's four-interception performance against Dallas will see that White was responsible for two of Manning's picks because he ran wrong routes.

All indications are that Collie, Clark and Addai are healthy now. Collie had two concussions last year - it seemed like he suffered more than that, but those were just relapses - but he's been medically cleared to play. Clark is fine coming off wrist surgery. They'll join Reggie Wayne and Pierre Garcon in a talented, but possibly flawed receiving corps. A third concussion would be a huge concern for Collie; Wayne turns 33 in November; while Garcon tied for the league lead in drops (13) with Brandon Marshall, Steve Johnson and Wes Welker.

Of the three injured players last year, Addai has the least chance of staying healthy, since he's battled numerous maladies the past few seasons. The Colts selected Delone Carter in the fourth round of the 2011 NFL Draft, but he won't be much of a factor this year because of the shortened offseason. It'll be up to Addai, Donald Brown and possibly Dominic Rhodes to carry the load. Rhodes is currently off the roster, but he could be signed if Brown continues to struggle with pass protection in the preseason. The bottom line is that Indianapolis once again won't have much of a ground attack.

The Colts spent their first two picks in the 2011 NFL Draft on offensive linemen, but the front line still figures to struggle. Rookies Anthony Castonzo and Ben Ijalana are slated to start at left tackle and left guard, respectively. While they are both much more talented than the men they're replacing, the inexperience will hurt against the better pass-rushing defenses. While this is common for rookie linemen, the brief offseason only magnifies it.

The two lone bright spots up front are at center (Jeff Saturday) and right guard (Mike Pollak). The Colts were able to keep right tackle Ryan Diem at a reduced salary, but while Diem brings experience to the table, that's not necessarily a good thing. Diem was easily one of the worst starting offensive linemen in the NFL last year. At 32, his play probably won't improve. Ijalana could play here instead of left guard.



2011 Indianapolis Colts Defense:
Indianapolis' defensive philosophy is to sacrifice run defense to benefit the pass rush, and thus enhance pass defense. Thanks to the no-contact rule, the NFL is more of a quarterback-driven league than ever, so the Colts' strategy should work if implemented correctly. However, that was not the case last year, as Indianapolis mustered only 30 sacks.

Rookie defensive end Jerry Hughes was a huge disappointment in 2010. He contributed nothing, prompting general manager Bill Polian to lament to the media about passing up on current Rams left tackle Rodger Saffold in favor of Hughes. The TCU pass-rusher needs to step up his game, as Indianapolis managed only nine sacks outside of Robert Mathis' 11 and Dwight Freeney's 10. Freeney and Mathis turned 31 and 30 respectively this offseason, so that could be an issue.

The Colts had no interior pass rush, so they spent a third-round pick on defensive tackle Drake Nevis. As mentioned earlier though, most rookies won't contribute much this year because of the shortened offseason, so Indianapolis will probably have to roll with Fili Moala and Eric Foster as starters again. A wild card is free-agent signing Tommie Harris, who has struggled in recent years because of numerous knee injuries. However, Harris' three sacks with Chicago would have been the fourth-most on the Colts' roster last season, so he should be able to bring something to the table, even if he doesn't revitalize his career.

Indianapolis is still soft at defensive tackle, so the team needs inside linebacker Gary Brackett to stay healthy for a change. Brackett misses action every year; he was out for four games in 2010. At 31, it's unlikely that he'll be in the lineup the entire season.

Brackett's successor is Pat Angerer, a second-year strongside linebacker. Angerer, chosen in the second round of the 2010 NFL Draft, struggled a bit last year, but should be better this season. Meanwhile, the weak link in Indianapolis' linebacking corps is Ernie Sims, who was dreadful with the Eagles this past year. Replacing Clint Session, who signed with the Jaguars, Sims is a good fit for this defense, but Colts fans shouldn't expect anything.

The secondary had a chance to be great last year, but two frequently injured players predictably couldn't stay healthy. Both Bob Sanders and Kelvin Hayden are gone, leaving Melvin Bullitt and Jacob Lacey as starters in their wake. Bullitt was also hurt in 2010; he missed 12 games because of a shoulder injury, but should be good to go come Sept. 11. Lacey, meanwhile, was anemic in coverage, surrendering a 75.9 completion percentage. Jerraud Powers, playing opposite of Lacey, is a better player, but is coming off forearm surgery.

Indianapolis does have a talented, proven, healthy player in its back seven. That would be free safety Antoine Bethea, who lived up to the 4-year, $27 million contract he signed last offseason.



2011 Indianapolis Colts Schedule and Intangibles:
The Colts have something going for them that few teams can enjoy this year - continuity. Indianapolis' coaching staff and roster have pretty much remained intact, which is a huge boost in a shortened offseason.

Adam Vinatieri received a well-deserved 3-year contract this offseason after nailing 26-of-28 attempts. It helps though that none of his field goal tries were from 50-plus. He's actually just 2-of-9 from that distance since 2003.

Punter Pat McAfee had a pretty bad 2010 campaign, both on and off the field. McAfee maintained a 42.0 average with 21-of-65 kicks inside the 20. He was also arrested for public intoxication in October.

The Colts once again struggled on special teams, as they were outgained by their opponents by 3.8 yards on punt returns and 6.2 yards on kickoffs. Making matters worse, the Colts surrendered two special-teams scores to the opposition.

Indianapolis has a pretty taxing non-divisional schedule. The team will have tough battles against Pittsburgh (home), Tampa Bay (road), New Orleans (road), Atlanta (home), New England (road) and Baltimore (road).

2011 Indianapolis Colts Analysis: The fate of the 2011 Indianapolis Colts rests on Peyton Manning's shoulders. Or rather, his neck. If Manning can play close to 100 percent, Indianapolis should capture yet another AFC South title. If, however, Manning struggles like he did in 2008, a team like the Texans could snatch the divisional crown away from them.

There's no way of knowing Manning's true status until he's actually on the field, but the fact that he figures to miss most, if not all of the preseason while remaining on the active/PUP list is somewhat troubling.

Projection: 10-6 (1st in AFC South)

Logan - He looked even worse this year in the first preseason game than he did all of last year.

I'd be shocked if he isn't the next Aaron Maybin. He's a pure speed rusher with very little meat on his bones who was over-drafted because he looked good for a year or two in a crappy conference (MWC).

@ Satan. I think there is potential for a solid running game from Indy, but it's completely dependent on the O-line. If a good O-line emerges and gels, then there will be a running game in Indy. The Colts front 5 have been on a steady decline since after Super Bowl XLI. If the unit comes togeather early and can open holes, then the Colts will have a running game. The problem has never been with the backs, it's been with the line.

@ Jim Z. I agree that Freeney is the most important part of the D, but I won't go so far as to call Hughes a bust yet. People expect WAY too much of first rounders nowadays. DE is one of the hardest positions to transition to and can take 3-4 years. By all accounts Hughes has looked better this year than last year. Wait and see how he develops before throwing out the bust label.

The fate of the Colts also relies on Dwight Freeney. If he goes down with injury, the Colts have no pass rush and are not making the playoffs. Their 2010 draft pick, Jerry Hughes, is a complete bust. So in a way, for the Colts to be relevant this year, both Manning and Freeney, and not just one or the other, have to have excellent seasons free of injury. If not, the Colts are missing the playoffs.

@Logan,
So you're just gonna disregard any potential for the Colts to have a solid running game this year? Sucks, cuz for reasons I mentioned below, I was kinda banking on a comeback season for Addai, but I'm guessing you see the team play a lot more than me, and you don't seem at all convinced.

Why in the world is everyone talking about the Colts like they're dead and buried? This is the same roster that came within a few plays of winning the Super Bowl two years ago and was a pre-season pick to make it to the big game last year before the season was derailed by injuries. Wayne looks in camp, Peyton is the greatest qb of all time, the D-line looks nasty (particularly Drake Nevis), and all four wideouts look polished and ready to go, especially Collie.

Further, M-Dogg, I think you're both overrating running the ball and underrating the Colts D. Over the last decade the NFL has morphed into a passing league. That's how you win games. Second, Bethea is easily one of the best free safeties in the league. Jerraud Powers could eaisly have a pro-bowl year and is one of the most underrated corners in football. There is plenty of star power on the Colts D.

The Colts will win double digit games and get into the playoffs. That's the most you can expect going into the season. Once in the playoffs, it's all about luck.

I think the Colts are past their peak and on their way down. Manning is still one of if not the elite QB in the league but has the neck injury and is comeing off a somewhat disappointing season (for him). He's always had something of a running game with Faulk, James, Addai but Addai constantly stays hurt while Brown hasen't justified his 1st round selection. Then as Walter mentioned Reggie Wayne is ageing, Collie is a concussion or two away from retirement, and Garcon while talented is no #1 and would struggle without defences locking on Wayne IMO. Their O-Line projects to struggle some as well with 2 rookies plugged in as starters (not a good sign when you veteran QB is comeing into the season less then 100 percent). Then of coarse their troubles with stopping the run still exist unless Harris comes out of nowhere to become a terror again. And when your in a division with MJD, Chris Johnson, and Arian Foster I mean come on is their a division with 3 better RBs? Mathis and Freeney are still the best pass rush duo in the biz but how much longer can they keep this up now that their in their 30s? The rest of their defence is made up of medicroe players who should be upgraded or talented guys who can't seem to stay healthy. If i'm Indy i'd be worried about this season.

Mike Pollack a bright spot!?!?! The guy is a revolving door. He is absolutely awful. Twice he has been given the starting job and twice he has lost it to UDFAs. I would put the over under on the number of games he starts this year at 5. Hopefully he gets pulled before Manning gets killed.

Also, no chance that Sims starts. The WILL spot belongs to Kavell Conner. Sims will back up Angerer at SAM.

Ditto on hoping (expecting) Tryon to supplant Lacey. Lacey is not a starting caliber corner, but is decent in nickle.

Justin Tryon will end up starting over Lacey - everyone knows that.
Mike Pollak's not good at all. He's in the bottom 10 of pass blocking efficiency for guards in the last 3 yrs. He has a good chance of being cut. Jacques McClendon will start over him.
Delone Carter's been getting rave reviews from Colts camp, so to say he won't play a factor because of a shortened off-season is stupid. Wouldn't be surprised if he ends up the #1 RB by the end of the year for the Colts.
Kavell Conner will start over Sims.

@Walt,

I think the o-line upgrades and Manning's neck mean the Colts will lean a bit on the running game, at least early on in the year, and I like Addai as a bit of a fantasy sleeper as a result.

Manning passed the ball 43 times per game last year, and management no doubt has to be realizing that he guy's not, in fact, bulletproof, as the neck thing is proving. They hopefully realize they gotta keep him upright, and that's not gonna happen if he's dropping back 40 times a game with a left side entirely made up of green rookies. That's why they'll hopefully try to build up their confidence through the ground game.

I also love the fact that Indy gave Addai that new contract (and even Manning specifically mentioned him as a guy that he was willing to take a pay cut to keep around)... to me it's a vote of confidence in favor of him having a healthy year.

Safe drafts always look good, because their are no risks and they did enough PR on the front end to declare the direction they were going to make it look successful. Meanwhile, how are they going to get to the opposing teams QB's with more than just two players?

I know this may surprise some people but I was not a fan of this draft. I am not a Colts fan but I see quite a few of their games and I really thought getting to the QB needed to be addressed as much as the O-line.

I do understand how much cash they have wrapped up in Peyton, and can understand the logic but the colts vaunted pass rush was 23rd last year. It is not like Drake Nevis is going to assist in that. Right now you have Freeny and Mathis, then nothing. Those two accounted for 21 of your 30 total sacks.

Meanwhile, Peyton Manning was tied for first in Sacks allowed during the regular season at on 16 sacks. While I understand that some of that is attributable to him getting the ball out of his hands, he still does do that.

I think offensive line was a security maneuver, not necessarily addressing the real problems that plagued the Colts.





2011 NFL Draft Grades:

The Colts had one primary goal entering the 2011 NFL Draft. That, of course, was to bolster the offensive line to improve Peyton Manning's pass protection. I'd say they did a good job.

Anthony Castonzo, arguably the top left tackle in this class, was a steal at No. 22. He could have easily gone in the teens. In fact, he may have been New England's choice if his agent weren't Tom Condon. Meanwhile, Ben Ijalana could have been drafted at the end of Round 1 without anyone calling it a reach. Getting him in the middle of Round 2 was a great move.


Overall 2011 NFL Draft Grade given on 5/1/11: A+



2011 NFL Draft Individual Grades:

22. Anthony Castonzo, OT, Boston College
This is a perfect pick for the Colts. They need to protect Peyton Manning's blind side, and Anthony Castonzo was projected to be drafted somewhere in the teens. Bill Polian strikes gold again. (Pick Grade: A)

49. Ben Ijalana, G/OT, Villanova
Another awesome selection. The Colts really needed to improve Peyton Manning's protection, and Bill Polian is making sure his quarterback actually has some time in the pocket for a change. Ben Ijalana could have gone at the bottom of the first round. (Pick Grade: A)

87. Drake Nevis, DT, LSU
I don't think anyone is surprised that the Colts are upgrading the defensive tackle position. Drake Nevis was considered a Round 3-4 prospect by most, so he definitely fits the range. Nevis is probably the last of the Day 2 defensive tackle prospects, so I can't blame Bill Polian for pulling the trigger. (Pick Grade: B)

119. Delone Carter, RB, Syracuse
Joseph Addai is a possible free agent and Donald Brown has been a disappointment, so you can understand this pick. This is the right range for Delone Carter. Decent pick. (Pick Grade: B)

188. Chris L. Rucker, CB/S, Michigan State
The Colts were expected to draft a defensive back on Day 3, so this pick makes sense. Chris L. Rucker was projected to go in Round 6. (Pick Grade: B)





Season Summary:
The 2010 campaign marked the first time the Colts haven't won at least 12 games in a season since 2001. Considering all the injuries they incurred, that's understandable. If Indianapolis can stay healthy next year, the team will once again become a Super Bowl contender.




Offseason Moves:
  • Lions sign DE Keyunta Dawson
  • Colts sign DT Tommie Harris
  • Colts sign OLB Ernie Sims
  • Colts sign DE/DT Jamaal Anderson
  • Colts sign QB Dan Orlovsky
  • Vikings sign OT Charlie Johnson
  • Rams sign DT Daniel Muir
  • Colts re-sign G Kyle DeVan
  • Colts re-sign DT Antonio Johnson
  • Colts re-sign DT Eric Foster
  • Colts re-sign QB Peyton Manning
  • Colts re-sign RB Joseph Addai
  • Colts cut CB Kelvin Hayden
  • Jaguars sign OLB Clint Session
  • Colts re-sign K Adam Vinatieri
  • Colts re-sign SS Melvin Bullitt
  • Colts sign RB Darren Evans
  • Colts sign S Joe Lefeged
  • Colts tender DT Eric Foster
  • Chargers sign SS Bob Sanders
  • Colts sign DT DeMario Pressley
  • Colts cut SS Bob Sanders
  • Colts franchise QB Peyton Manning


    Offseason Needs:
    1. Left Tackle: Charlie Johnson, a free agent, was one of the worst left tackles in the NFL this past season. Bill Polian has to be kicking himself for passing on local product Rodger Saffold. Luckily, there will be several viable left tackle prospects to choose from with the 22nd pick in the 2011 NFL Draft, including Derek Sherrod, Tyron Smith and Anthony Castonzo. Drafted Anthony Castonzo

    2. Right Tackle: The right tackle position also needs to be upgraded, as Ryan Diem really struggled this year.

    3. Defensive Tackle: The Colts really have nothing next to Fili Moala, as Daniel Muir could be the worst starting defensive tackle in the NFL. Someone like Jurrell Casey is a second-round option. Drafted Drake Nevis; signed Tommie Harris, Jamaal Anderson and DeMario Pressley

    4. Right Guard: The rotation of Mike Pollak and Jeff Linkenbach proved to be ineffective in 2010. Indianapolis will look at Rodney Hudson in Round 2. Drafted Ben Ijalana

    5. Wide Receiver: Reggie Wayne turns 33 in the middle of the 2011 season. Anthony Gonzalez can't stay healthy. Austin Collie is a couple of concussions away from calling it quits. The Colts need a receiver, and they'll probably target this position in Rounds 3-5.

    6. Strong Safety: Indianapolis will need a capable strong safety when Bob Sanders gets injured next season. Re-signed Melvin Bullitt; drafted Chris L. Rucker; signed Joe Lefeged

    7. Running Back: The Colts will have problems at running back next year if they don't re-sign Joseph Addai. Re-signed Joseph Addai; drafted Delone Carter; signed Darren Evans

    8. Quarterback: Peyton Manning is 35. He's entering the final stage of his career, so the Colts should think about spending a mid-round pick on a possible successor. Signed Nate Davis and Dan Orlovsky

    9. Punter: Pat McAfee is not getting the job done.








    2011 NFL Free Agent Signings:
    1. Jamaal Anderson, DE/DT, Falcons. Age: 25.
      Signed with Colts (1 year)

      Jamaal Anderson can't get to the quarterback, but is an excellent run defender. I'm ranking him relatively high because I think he could be a really good 5-technique in the 3-4.

    2. Tommie Harris, DT, Bears. Age: 28.
      Signed with Colts (1 year)

      Tommie Harris is a shell of what he used to be. He's battled through way too many injuries. There's a chance he'll be able to bounce back and become a solid player once again, but I wouldn't bet on it.

    3. Ernie Sims, OLB, Eagles. Age: 26. -- Signed with Colts
    4. Darren Evans, RB, Virginia Tech. Age: N/A. -- Signed with Colts
    5. Joe Lefeged, SS, Rutgers. Age: 23. -- Signed with Colts
    6. DeMario Pressley, DT, Texans. Age: 25. -- Signed with Colts
    7. Dan Orlovsky, QB, Texans. Age: 28. -- Signed with Colts



    Indianapolis Colts Free Agents:

    Salary Cap: No cap.
    1. Peyton Manning, QB, Colts. Age: 35.
      Re-signed with Colts (5 years, $90 million)

      Statistically, Peyton Manning had a poor year by his standards, throwing 17 interceptions to 33 touchdowns and generating just a 6.9 YPA. However, considering that he was working with no-names like Blair White and Jacob Tamme all year, Manning had an exceptional season. It's highly doubtful that Bill Polian will allow him to hit the open market.

    2. Adam Vinatieri, K, Colts. Age: 38.
      Re-signed with Colts (3 years)

      Adam Vinatieri can still nail clutch kicks, as he showed against the Jets this January. Vinatieri hit 26-of-28 field goals in 2010, including 9-of-10 from 40-49.

    3. Kelvin Hayden, CB, Colts. Age: 28.
      Kelvin Hayden is a talented cornerback and would be ranked higher than this if he weren't so injury-prone; Hayden has missed 18 games the past three seasons.

    4. Joseph Addai, RB, Colts. Age: 28.
      Re-signed with Colts

      Joseph Addai isn't the most talented runner in the NFL, but he's great on third downs as both a pass-protector and a receiver out of the backfield.

    5. Bob Sanders, SS, Colts. Age: 30.
      Signed with Chargers (1 year)

      Despite being 30 years old and coming off multiple injuries, Bob Sanders is a 4-star talent. The problem is that he has 1-star durability. I just averaged the two together to get 2.5 stars. Sanders is a huge risk, but he's worth taking a chance on at the right price.

    6. Clint Session, OLB, Colts. Age: 26.
      Signed with Jaguars (5 years, $30 million)

      The Colts missed Clint Session last year; he played in only five games because of an elbow injury.

    7. Kyle DeVan (ERFA), G, Colts. Age: 26.
      Re-signed with Colts

      Kyle DeVan did a very good job in pass protection down the stretch, surrendering only one sack all year. However, he was heavily penalized.

    8. Melvin Bullitt, SS, Colts. Age: 26.
      Re-signed with Colts (multi-year)

      The Colts lost Melvin Bullitt to a season-ending shoulder injury in early October. He's a marginal strong safety.

    9. Mike Hart (RFA), RB, Colts. Age: 25.
      Mike Hart ran impressively when given the opportunity this past season, averaging 4.3 yards per carry. I'd like to see him get more touches next year (assuming he can stay healthy).

    10. Mike Pollak, G, Colts. Age: 26.
      A marginal guard who struggles in the run-blocking department.

    11. Antonio Johnson, DT, Colts. Age: 26.
      Re-signed with Colts

      Antonio Johnson has some upside as a 310-pound defensive tackle with pass-rushing ability. He played well at times this past season after a horrible 2009 campaign.

    12. Daniel Muir, DT, Colts. Age: 27. -- Signed with Rams (1 year, $1.85 million)
    13. Charlie Johnson, OT, Colts. Age: 27. -- Signed with Vikings
    14. Eric Foster, DT, Colts. Age: 26. -- Re-signed with Colts
    15. Tyjuan Hagler, OLB, Colts. Age: 29.
    16. Aaron Francisco, S, Colts. Age: 28.
    17. Keyunta Dawson, DE, Colts. Age: 25. -- Signed with Lions
    18. Jamie Silva (RFA), S, Colts. Age: 26.
    19. Al Afalava (ERFA), S, Colts. Age: 24.
