Really Tired of the Shots at the Colts


I get it: we were really bad last year. But now we're hearing that RGIII will have much more success than Luck, since he's not surrounded by an awful team. And someone wrote that Luck's college OL is much better than what Indy has. I'm sorry, I think they're overstating things. Costanzo improved a lot last year, Ijalana is a legitimate talent, Reitz played very well last year (and he's an improving/learning player), and by all accounts Satele is a solid starter. We add another guard, and this line is bordering on excellent IMHO. It seems like the media is piling on. I'm not willing to concede that we'll be a bad team next year! San Francisco was supposed to be a 4-12 team last year, and they were pretty much the best team in the league. Houston went from a terrible D to the #2 D in the league in one year (and making the exact same 3-4 conversion the Colts are attempting). I think we have some good returning elements, and I'm hopeful that the Colts will be one of those teams that make the "experts" eat their words. (Though, did you ever notice that these analysts never seem to admit they were wrong? Instead, they just call the team "surprising".)
