They are a great unit. I wondered why they went out as a group instead of as a unit at the last two home games. I would like them to go out individually. Why? Because the crowd wants to reward the players individually with a loud yell. In addition, that starts the fans voice training for the game, like a warmup so to speak. The unit is important, yes, but the unit is still a sum of its parts. I hope the Colts will not go out as a group when their individual names are called again. It's not fair to the fans, in my opinion.

"not fair to the fans"? that seems a little extreme don't you think?

This O-Line is awesome! When a journeyman like Kenton Keith can come in and pick up Addai/Edge/Tomlinson type of yardage, that really speaks volumes about the guys who are opening up the holes! Keep up the good work!

I hope the offensive line keeps working together and continues to improve together. The media and fans can focus on whatever they want, no team makes it to the Superbowl, much less wins it, unless they control the offensive line of scrimmage. They have a rookie playing? Hard to tell isn't it? The Colts are blessed with great management, coaching, and dedicated players. Playing in the AFC South this year can only help them.
Since, they are not looking for individual recognition, why should anyone worry about it? Sorry Jim, you are off base this time.

I like that they are considering themselves as one. When you hear the talking heads talk about MVP of a game, they often think it should go to the offensive line instead of a single person. I'm not a big colts fan, but I appreciate what they have done in the recent past and a lot of that has to do with the O line.

It's polian and mudd that are the basis for the successful formula. Polian finds them and mudd turns them into a cohesive successvful unit.

Coach Dungy is, in my opinion, on his way to establishing himself as one of the legendary coaches in the history of the NFL.

The Colts are doing great considering they won it all. One might expect a let down but they are playing well especially on defense in the tackling dept. However,if my memory serves me correctly they do not play especially well after bye weeks. I did not look up their record but as I recall they are generally a little sluggish.

Sorry Jim, I have to disagree with you. This is not about the fans or getting warmed up to yell for players individually. I think it shows they are a unit and there is no "I" in the Colts team. When they win, they win together. That is part of their success. Whatever though, GO COLTS!!!! Oh goody, Dolts is awake!

Unsung heroes...they are doing a great job protecting Manning. As long as Manning is not rattled, he can make any defense look ordinary. Colts O-line gets lot of credit for making this offense so efficient.

It is amazing how many times a day you show how illiterate you are. The word is "PUTZ" not Puzz, if you are going to insult someone at least do it properly. Do BET,Bob and you have a little club where you meet, drink generic cola, eat stale potato chips and pleasure each other to BET's Big Heads of Tom Brady and Belicheat?

Not one of the above posts mentions the O-Line Coach, Howard Mudd. He has consistently put the pieces together, year after year, to provide Manning the time to throw and various RB's the lanes to run. Mudd has done this with many different lineups but the results are almost always excellent. He is the common denominator to this terrefic O-Line. Give credit where its due fans. Oh, and one more thing - Jim, your comment speaks volumes about your lack of football awareness. O-Lines with the mentality of the Colts are rare and what sets them apart. You really want them to change so you can "cheerlead" louder or longer?? Please get a firm grip on yourself.

Gotta love that O-line! They know their job and they do it very, very well. Sure, I miss Tarik Glenn, but Ugoh is doing very well as a rookie in a tough position. I have a lot of respect for the Colts -- they work, win and lose as a team. Tony Dungy, Howard Mudd and the rest of the coaching staff have a lot to be proud of.
