    The Indianapolis Colts finished last season with a record of 8-8. HC Chuck Pagano enters his 6th season with the Colts. The Colts are predicted to go 9-7 in 2017.
    On Offense, QB Andrew Luck will hope to continue where he left off last year, posting 4,240 passing yds for 31 TD's/13 int, he also rushed 64 times for 341 yds and 2 TD's! Luck is a legitimate top5 QB at 27 yrs old, he's probably the most well-rounded QB in the league. He's also one of the better running QB's in the NFL. QB Scott Tollzien is listed as the no. 2 QB, beating out quotback Jacoby Brissett.. At TE Jack Doyle will start, following a nice 2016 season he posted 59 rec for 584 yds and 5 TD's. With Dwayne Allen gone, Doyle is the main man! Terrible depth at TE. The Colts O-Line will be 4/5 white this season! LT Anthony Castonzo is the heart and soul of the line. C Ryan Kelly started last season as a Rookie from Alabama, will be key this year! Not much depth at o-line, with only Schwenke, and Haeg in 2-deep.

    On Defense, DE Henry Anderson from Stanford is listed as a starter, injuries derailed him last season, but he looks to wreak havoc this year! The backup DE will be Margus Hunt, hailing from Estonia he's a mountain at 6'8 298 lbs. Hunt should see plenty of snaps, even some at DT.. John Simon is listed as the starting SLB, signed from the Texans this summer he posted 51 total tackles and 3.5 sacks last year on limited playing time. Starters in bold.
    Offense
    QB
    - Andrew Luck, Scott Tolzien
    TE- Jack Doyle, Henry Krieger-Coble
    LT- Anthony Castonzo
    LG
    - Jeremy Vujnovich, Kyle Kalis
    C- Ryan Kelly, Mike Person
    RT- Joe Haeg

    Deffense

    DE
    - Henry Anderson, Margus Hunt
    SLB- John Simon

    Special Teams

    K
    - Adam Vinatieri
    P
    - Mestizo Rigoberto Sanchez
    LS- Luke Rhodes

    Total starters-
    8
    Whites on 53-man roster- 16
    Overall- The Colts look decent at first glance. Luck, Doyle, and a 4/5 O-Line look nice. 2 white starters, and another coming off the bench on D could be worse. If they can manage to keep all their starters, the Colts could be a team to support!

    Colts add OL Adam Redmond to the 53-man roster, and waived RB Matt Jones.

    Colts add another white to their roster per Weenie World report:

    Colts claimed TE Henry Krieger-Coble off waivers from the Broncos.
    Krieger-Coble contributed on special teams for the 2016 Broncos and can play some H-back in a pinch. He adds depth to the Colts' tight end unit.

    Andrew Luck is having shoulder soreness as he recovers from should surgery. This looks to be a lost season for him.

    Great. Brisket and Hundley get free starter seasons thanks to injuries. At least Carr's come back to replace Ebony Jenkem but the Raiders are so dark they're a lost cause.

    They will both fall flat on their faces and be exposed.

    Welp DE Henry Anderson was put on IR after suffering a laryngeal fracture (not a typo) vs the Texans. This sucks because Anderson was starting to pick it up posting Sacks in back-to-back weeks before the injury, he ends 2017 with 22 tot tckls, 2.5 Sacks, and 1 Forced fumble. The bright side is Margus Hunt will replace Anderson! Hunt didn't quite live up to expectations on the Bengals, but he's looked good backing up Anderson this year posting 10 tot tckls, 1 sack, and a bocked kick!
