Chappell’s second position series for all-time Indianapolis Colts, he takes a look at the running back position.
He has five running backs for fans to pick from and this figures to be a bit more competitive than the quarterback debate.

Kuharsky takes a look back to the beginning of the offseason when he made his predictions for each team in the division.
Now, it’s time to evaluate those decisions and here’s a look at how he graded out.
What Kuharsky got right:
Turnover: “Nose tackle Antonio Johnson did good work but isn’t ideal for a 3-4. Josh Chapman and Brandon McKinney are on the roster, rebounding from injuries and better suited to do what the role requires. Receiver Donnie Avery was a nice reclamation project, but the Colts can and should be looking for an upgrade beyond Reggie Wayne and T.Y. Hilton.”
The team made no effort to re-sign Johnson, who wound up with the Titans. Avery moved on to Kansas City and the Colts brought in Darrius Heyward-Bey, who looks to be an upgrade.

As a league-wide initiative, NFL teams will now have to install permanent cameras in their home locker rooms in 2013.
“This is a new frontier—for all the teams,” said Colts Chief Operating Officer Pete Ward. “We’re looking at and discussing things like where the camera will be mounted and how this content will be used.”
There are many things to weigh when deciding how to use the footage that is taken on game day, with the ultimate balance between revealing what the team is planning and at the same time providing unique content.
“We want to give our fans as much access as possible,” Ward said. “We just need to make sure we do it in a way that makes sense for everyone involved.”
