Luke Links: Recapping 23-20 Loss To The Steelers


Tough loss last night. But, unlike the previous two games, there were things to build from this defeat. This sentiment seems to be shared by most Colts fans who watched the game.

The 'established' media also seemed to come away from he game with the same feeling:

However, though he played terrible much of the game, Colts corner Jerraud Powers summed up the overall state of this team pretty well following the loss:

"The standard and foundation here is winning. It’s not about just getting better every week."

I like this mindset.

This is just my feeling here: The day the Colts and their fans start getting excited about 'moral victories' is the day the franchise stops being elite. The expectation should always be to win. If people don't share that expectation at West 56th Street, they shouldn't be part of the franchise anymore.
