Indianapolis Signs AFL WR Maurice Williams
It's finally time.
After months of back-and-forth emails, a couple weeks of shameless promotion and a few sleepless nights, the Colts Authority staff is proud to present you with the 2013 Colts Authority Annual.
The Annual is going to be a yearly Indianapolis Colts preview that contains a wide variety of material from Colts Authority staff and contributors. Not only does this include traditional season preview material (positional previews, free agent and draft profiles, etc.) but some unique Colts Authority material (I will neither confirm nor deny that there is a brand new "XX Reasons We Love ____").
The Annual is now available to download on Madison House Publishing at the low, low price of $4.99.
I know that free content is the name of the game in today's new media age, but I can tell you (as one of the cheapest people I know) that this will be well worth it.
With over 100 pages of premium content, all laid out beautifully by our own Josh Boeke, the Annual is one of the most exciting, highest-quality projects that I've been a part of.
If you're a Colts fan, this is a must-read to get crunked, as our own Nate Dunlevy would say, for the 2013 season.
If you're not sure whether this is for you or not, check out this 10-page demo (right-click, save as), straight from the 100+ page final product. If that doesn't make you want to buy it, there's no hope for you.
Last note: if you enjoy the Annual, and would like to see more, please share it, recommend it to others, comment, etc. We're really excited to do this for years to come, but only with your support. Thank you for reading, and go Colts!no comments
No matter how little the final score matters in the preseason, it’s nice to see a win. The Colts first unit looked shaky for a minute, and then bolted out to a 17-3 lead, bookended by Andrew Luck touchdown passes, one a dangerous near-interception, saved by some amazing concentration on the part of Reggie Wayne, and the other a beautiful throw to the corner of the end zone to T.Y. Hilton.
Luck, playing most of the first half, finished 9/13 for 107 yards, 2 touchdowns, and a 133.7 quarterback rating. Darrius Heyward-Bey led all Colts receivers with 4 catches for 42 yards and looked downright legitimate in the process.
Reggie Wayne had 3 receptions for 37 yards including his touchdown. On the play, Luck threw the ball as he was going down, badly underthrowing Wayne. The pass bounced off a New York Defender’s hands near the goal line and right to Wayne, who batted the ball into the air momentarily, only to catch it in the end zone for the odd-looking, highlight reel touchdown.

Two and a half weeks into August comes the Colts' second preseason game, this one in New York to take on the two-years-removed-from-a-Super-Bowl Giants. This game will be nationally televised on FOX, so even non-Hoosiers like me who don't have NFLN can watch without worrying about our internet connection.
Once again we'll take this spot to remind you that this game does not matter. The score doesn't matter in the least. Not after one quarter. Not after two quarters. Certainly not after the entire game.
That being said, here are three things I will be paying attention to tonight.no comments
The Colts picked their first legitimate playmaker of the 2013 NFL Draft in the 7th round, drafting Kerwynn Williams out of Utah State. The diminutive back isn't going to be an every-down workhorse, but that doesn't mean he won't contribute.
Williams is in a battle with Delone Carter for the fourth running back spot, as well as competing for a job as a returner.
He contributed as a runner, receiver and returner in the Colts' loss to Buffalo, and I took to the film to take a closer look.no comments
