Hey Indy Star, great idea to get the insights of those who've toiled to the top. If anyone has a realistic feel its these guys.
The only one I'd take exception with is Jim Mandich. His claim that the Colts have "receded" just isn't the reality we've seen out of the Colts to date. Last season for example, we saw the Colts overcome obstacle after obstacle, especially on the defensive side. With each hurdle, they became a better team. Who can forget how the criticisms of the Colts Defense spurred them to perform at levels no one though possible in the playoffs?
I agree with Jim that other teams have improved over last season, however, I fail to see how the Colts have receded one iota.
Whether the Colts repeat will depend on how well the new starters can replicate the performance of those they replaced. I think the team as a whole has as good or better chance as any other team.
One thing no one mentioned is momentum. Advantage Colts.
I thank Mandich and the other seven for taking time to provide their insights!
