Welcome to the Indianapolis Colts, Mr. Andrew Luck.
Despite a two-game winning streak after starting the season 0-13, the Colts managed to not screw-up their draft positioning in the final week of the 2011 regular season. A 19-13 loss to the Jaguars in Jacksonville secures the No. 1 overall pick in the 2012 NFL Draft to Indy. That pick will most certainly be Stanford quarterback Andrew Luck, meaning the Peyton Manning era in Indianapolis could be coming to an end.
Suck 4 Luck is now complete.
As he always does, Maurice Jones-Drew destroyed the Colts defense. He rushed for 169 yards on 25 carries. The Jags became the first AFC South team to sweep the Colts since the Titans did it back in 2002.
In many ways, the final score might actually count as a 'win.' The first overall pick means the Colts can rebuild their roster with premiere talent in a draft that features some real playmakers. The Colts end the season 2-14, their worst season since their 1-15 record in 1991. Hopefully, with the No. 1 overall pick, and perhaps some changes in the front office and coaching staff, the Colts can get back to being an elite franchise.
