Isn't it about time we realized that the QB controversy isn't our biggest problem?

Sure, the Indianapolis Colts have a future hall of famer and the ability to add one of the highest rated quarterbacks coming out of the college. Currently, the Colts are dealing with this quarterback controversy for all its' worth. This is great problem to have, but this season was a great validation to the idea that the colts need to focus as much if not more on other aspects of the team.

I stand by my belief that we wouldn't have reached our super bowl goal this season even with Manning. Our offense would surely have been prolific, but this season we witnessed our weaknesses on a large scale. Our defense, especially our secondary, was plagued with injuries and let almost anyone score. Each team we played beat us at some point in the season. Our special teams play, knowing the orthodox style of our colts, has not changed over the past five years. A great amount of our best players (Wayne, Freeney, Mathis, Brackett) are older and will definitely not be able to maintain their amazing level of play for too much longer. The point is that most of our team is aging and it's going to take more than Manning/Luck to win a super bowl in the next few years. If this wasn't the case, Peyton would have many more rings under his belt.

If we focus on these other issues, I believe that our team is heading in a positive direction as long as we stick to the rebuilding process. As long as our new GM and Caldwell/whoever our HC is next year focus on improving this issue, we are soon going to go back to franchise we were in the past few years.

My question to the team is regarding their plan for the rebuilding stage that we're going to be in for the next year. What does the new front office need to look at as priority for next year? Who should we draft? How will the new GM draft in comparison to the poor drafting in the past few years by the Polians?

It's going to be an interesting year.
