Mike Lopresti: This one is going to sting

(Continued)

You could see the frustration leaking from Andrew Luck's postgame appearance and tell how much it hurt.

"Disappointed. I guess a little angry at myself," he mentioned of his feelings. "I feel like we are a better team than what we showed out there."

The team that has specialized in finishing games scored one field goal after halftime.

The offense with the knack of finding its targets at just the right time, kept searching. Every one of Hilton's 124 yards were in the first half. Reggie Wayne had one catch in the second half.

The escape artists with a relentless talent of finding a way committed such mishaps as losing a touchdown on a penalty.

"There were so many errors on our part," Coby Fleener said. "It's not typical of a Colts team."

The quarterback who excels so at fourth quarter CPR, had two late chances against the Dolphins. On the first, he tried to force a pass to Wayne and had it intercepted. On the second, he was sacked on fourth down."I don't think I managed that particularly well," Luck said.

The sack?

"You never want to get sacked on fourth down. That's one of the cardinal sins of playing football."

The interception?

"That's another play I'd love to have back."

Hilton going mute in the second half?

"I didn't give T.Y. good enough balls on some of his routes. So I think a lot of that burden falls on me."

No quarterback/magician pulls a rabbit out of every helmet. So one close loss in mid-September is hardly fatal. More worrisome is the Colts' defense. Oakland's Terrelle Pryor had such fun in the opener, and the Dolphins were never stopped when they had to be on Sunday.

  • SPT - HB0731 - Colts Camp - Werner - 319 Werner's progress evident at Colts Camp

    Bjoern Werner's rookie training camp was rather quiet. The German-born outside linebacker went through individual drills and worked hard in full-team sessions, but he was overwhelmed by all the new information he was processing. And it was holding him back. When the season started, Werner was further set back by a foot injury that cost him three games, and he finished the year with just 2.5 sacks. Then the former Florida State star went to work.

Left guard Donald Thomas hit the ground following an 11-on-11 running drill and was visibly upset when he finally was helped to his feet. He threw his mouthguard away in anger and attempted to walk off the injury with trainers away from the rest of his teammates.

  • SPT - HB0731 - Colts Camp - Fleener - 206 Colts focusing on situational improvement One year ago, the focus in Indianapolis Colts training camp was on turnovers. The team had committed far too many in 2012 and was determined not to repeat its mistakes. The theme at Anderson University carried over to the field, and the Colts' 14 turnovers were the fewest in the NFL last year.
