Colts Daily Headlines: July 18th Edition

Posted by Kevin Bowen on July 18, 2013 – 8:24 am

The Pro Bowl sack duo of Freeney and Mathis has found themselves on Chappell’s all-Indy team. Also, with single game ticket sales going on sale earlier this week, it’s pretty evident what the most demanding ticket is on the Colts home schedule.

Each morning will take a look at the top headlines surrounding the Indianapolis Colts from around the globe. What is the local and national media saying about the Colts?

Take a look below at the top pieces from Thursday, July 18th.  

All-time Indy Colts defensive ends: Dwight Freeney and Robert Mathis

The duo of 93 and 98 seemed like the obvious choice here.

They came from different paths but after combining for 199 career sacks, I think it’s safe to say the Colts got both these picks right on.

“Dwight was perfect for what we were doing,’’ Dungy said.

“Everybody liked Robert,’’ Dungy said of the Colts’ personnel staff as it prepared for the 2003 draft. “His highlight tape was as good as any I had ever seen, maybe other than Barry Sanders.

“It was unbelievable. It was play after play after play, running things down from behind, making tackles on kickoffs, blocking kicks. Just play after play.’’

Despite Peyton’s return, Colts ticket value still lags

It should come as no surprise that one particular game is garnering a ton of attention on the Colts home schedule.

The ticket demands for the Colts Oct. 20 matchup with the Denver Broncos (aka Peyton Manning’s return) is by far the biggest ticket on the home slate.

“This game stands alone on the Colts schedule in terms of interest,” said Mike Peduto, co-owner of locally based Circle City Tickets. “It’s a big enough game that it’s bringing in some national interest in terms of ticket sales.”

“A lot of people just want to be there to be able to say, ‘I was there when Peyton came back,’” Peduto explained. “I think you’ll find this crowd to be very pro Peyton. You’re not going to hear many boos.”
