On 2009 being "special" for the Colts

Since the draft I've been wondering if 2009 may be the perfect storm for the Colts in terms of talent being available at the right price.  The increasing number of teams running a 3-4 and the much-exaggerated demise of the Tampa-2 has created a situation in which the Colts have been able to sign young former starting linebackers in Hagler and Keiaho as backups, for backup money, while establishing a near monopoly on undersized, gap-shooting DTs and big, athletic cover corners who tackle extremely well.  Just wondering if anyone had thoughts on whether the availability of talent this offseason has had much to do with teams like Tampa Bay and Detroit no longer being in the market for Tampa-2 role players?  The impression that this team is "special" seems warranted, but I also think some of the reasons it could be so exceptionally deep are reflections of the Colts being positioned in the right place at the right time in the (perceived) twilight of the Tampa-2.
