I know this subject comes around every year about who the team that HBO covers in Hard Knocks. I'm going to officially put in my vote for the Colts to be that team this year. I have been a lifelong Colts fan and I consider myself pretty loyal to the franchise, but each year when I am watching Hard Knocks, I find myself wishing it was the Colts. I know it brings a lot of media coverage (positive/negative) to a team, but why not the Colts?
There are a lot of good stories that could be gleamed from the Colts being on the show. Coach recovers from cancer to coach again. Eccentric owner and his crazy twitter habit. WR from Oakland tries to recover his career. QB of the utmost pedigree tries to duplicate his rookie campaign with less INTs. New offensive line to cover the aforementioned QB. I'm sure there are more, but this will suffice.
We like to think that we know the ins and outs of the Colts, but in all reality we as fans do not have any insight in what happens behind closed doors. We see their training camp, OTAs, and other things we get from Stampede Blue and any other website that we read about the Colts, but we don't know how the franchise works from the inside. I think, and I might be the minority on this subject, the Colts would make a fantastic candidate to be on this season's Hard Knocks.
