According to Mike Chappell of the Indianapolis Star, the Colts waived DE Lawrence Guy today so they could activate WR LaVon Brazill to the active roster.
Pagano: added LaVon Brazill to 53, waived Lawrence Guy. Roster is fluid. Have to make tough decisions. Lawrence did great job last 2 wks— Mike Chappell (@mchappell51) October 7, 2013
Brazill had been serving a suspension for violating the NFL’s substance abuse policy. Many believe the speedy young receiver has some potential despite playing a very small role in the offense his rookie year (11 catches, 186 yards, TD, but an impressive 16.9 ypc).
Guy, on the other hand, spent most of 2012 with the team before being cut in the preseason this year. He re-signed on September 24th, played as a backup for a couple games, and most notably blocked a Seahawks field goal yesterday leading to Delano Howell’s touchdown that helped turn the tide in the Colts’ 34-28 win.
Despite dominant road wins in consecutive weeks, it felt like the Colts still needed to prove they were contenders. So after wins against the injured 49ers and the hapless Jaguars, the Colts would have a chance to, in the words of FOX announcer Eric Burkhardt, "legitimalize themselves" by beating one of the best teams in the NFL, the Seattle Seahawks.
It felt like this could be a great game and the teams didn’t disappoint. Let’s take a look at the Colts offense, defense and STs and see which players had the biggest impact in this instant classic.no comments
What’s Going on with Ahmad?
Two weeks ago, Ahmad Bradshaw was the workhorse behind a monster win over the San Francisco 49ers, making 3 catches for 16 yards, and rushing 19 times for 95 yards and a touchdown. Now, he’s two weeks in to an inactive period, with reports that he will be out at least another two weeks with a neck injury. He may even elect to have season-ending surgery. What is going on? How is it now that his injury is either a wait-to-heal or could require surgery? And most mysteriously, if he was injured on only his 5th carry, how did he continue on to make 17 more plays?
Who was the nimrod who decided to write a weekly column complaining about the Colts in the same year the Colts decided to have an amazing season? Really, there are only two acceptable choices at this point: 1) change the name from Monday Morning Moaner to Monday Morning Merriment or 2) fire myself. Unfortunately, I'm as stubborn about not changing things (or firing myself) as Pep Hamilton is about using the fullback, so we're sticking with the Moaner theme and we're going to complain about a 34-28 victory over the Seattle Seahawks. Yea, I'm that guy.no comments
“It was huge. Nobody picked us again, but we’re always the underdog, underdog always comes out on top and that’s how we feel.” – Wide Receiver T.Y. Hilton on Sunday’s victory.
The Colts’ 34-28 win over the Seahawks yesterday, as we know, nearly plunged into an outright blowout. Down 12-0 in the first quarter, Indianapolis was dangling on the precipice of football disaster – their first three drives netted 9 total yards – when they dialed up a vertical play to T.Y. Hilton (after a three and out by the defense).
Andrew Luck, with a defender pushing guard Mike McGlynn backward into him, sidestepped the pressure and hit a streaking Hilton, who caught the ball around the 31 yard line, made one man miss along the sideline, and jetted into the endzone to complete a 73-yard touchdown.
Ladies and Gentlemen, the Indianapolis Colts are for real. Legitimate. Whatever you want to call it. After a rather unusual 34-28 victory over the Seahawks, the Colts now sit at 4-1 as they make their way through a very tough stretch in their schedule. What ended in elation, however, began very differently.
The Colts came into this game hoping to prove they could compete against the best, hoping to take it to the 4-0 Seahawks the same way they did the 49ers in their 27-7 victory in by the Bay. Things didn’t begin well, however, as Indy came out flat on both sides of the ball.
