I try and see a game every year with my parents but this year was just awful. I feel like the Colts are the one other team on here that I am a true expert.
I am greatly interested in seeing how this team evolves from the Polian/Dungy influence. High priced offense meaning we needed a defense like the Cover 2. Speed on the edge, undersized cheap expendable defenders designed to flow to the ball and yield turnovers but not stop the chains. Easily replaceable defense worked well with the salary cap and Manning putting opposing teams into constant passing situations. This is probably going to be the most interesting and important case study for how to rebuild a team.
And I figured my Lions board has 32,500+ posts and this had 4,277 so I should start spreading the wealth around a little bit.
That would be nice. Maybe with Polian gone we'll actually have some insight into the personnel process for the Colts and actually have some stuff to talk about.
