Default Question about Colts offense

Do the Colts run a ZBS as a base a la Denver, Houston, and Green Bay, or do they just incorporate zone blocking with some man blocking?

I'm pretty sure it's primarily zone-blocking, with the emphasis being on lineman to stay on their feet.

For those who aren't aware, former Colts quarterbacks coach (1998-2000) Bruce Arians has recently been promoted as the offensive coordinator of the Pittsburgh Steelers, after serving as the Steelers' wide receivers coach for 3 seasons.

Word is that the Steelers offense will incorporate more no-huddle and 4 WR sets, which should be interesting in Steel Town especially. Roflisberger is very enthused by it, at least, he ran much more no-huddle in college than he has in the pros and has been clamoring for its incorporation for over a year.

As Geo said, it appears to be primarily zone blocking. The staple play of the Colts' run game is the stretch play, which is definitely a zone blocking play. The fact that the Colts use it isn't noticed very much around the league because when the Colts' offense is brought up, the first thing everyone talks about is Peyton Manning and the passing game, and while it's deserved, it takes pretty much all of the attention that the running game might get.
