A lot to look forward to this season!

Yeah, the Colts do pretty well at drafting.  They believe, rightfully so, that's how you build a team for the long haul.

Of course, it helps to have a Peyton Manning at QB so you're not constantly spending draft choices searching for competency at QB.  Instead, you have the latitude to fit in the pieces around him and on defense.

I've followed this team from Unitas' days, and Bill Polian  gets my vote as master of the draft board.  And he's extra smart in how well he and all of the personnel dept. listen to Tony and his staff in order to fit the right talent to the system.  No one is better at uncovering talent with low draft picks or undrafted collegiate free agents.

This year's rookie crop is as good or better than I have ever seen.  Depth on this year's team will be extraordinary.  Speed, athleticism and play-making ability top the descriptive terms one might use for this year's Colts team.  Guys like Howard, Foster, Curtis Johnson, Mike Hart, Wheeler, Tamme, Garcon . . . . . . .whew!  That's not all of them, I know.  But what tremendous additions to an already talented squad!

Now, with the opening of Lucas Oil Stadium, a truly classy and talented team has a home field to match their level of excellence.  We fans have one heckuva lot to look forward to this season . . .it should be a great ride!
