My, My, Kravitz wrote a column without all the sarcasm he thinks is needed, only a little and it was geared toward Peyton, WHO else?
Yes Tony has a nose for good players, players who lead a good life on and off the field, why do you think some of what we thought were "good players" are playing elsewhere?

I thought I knew every Colt player, but Charlie Johnson threw me. I could not remember him. I guess I pay too much attention to Jeff Saturday. Go Charlie!

Congratulations Charlie, now we are all aware of your legacy and character. You stand proud on the line and we, in turn, stand proud behind you and your fellow linemen in support. The Colts have a great group. Thanks to all of you who make our team a group to be proud of.

I liked that story. Why didn't that get hype after THE GAME?
Way to go, Charlie. I'm going to put my binoculars on #74 at training camp next month and watch you in action up close.
Go Charlie

Its still the most understated and underappreciated group of Colts.....the offensive line. They are starting to slowly get their due after that playoff run where we pretty much just manhandled every other teams D-Line. This chiefs used to have hands down the best line in the NFL about 3 years ago. Over the past two years, the Colts and Chargers lines have emerged as the best. I would give the nod to the Colts partly because I am jaded and partly because they have more depth. You look at Johnson and he could be a starter anywhere look at Oguh and you can see he is going to be a solid guy as well. We resigned Jake Scott and picked Demulling back up after he went to Detroit for a few years for just over a mil.

I know we have some great high profile players on offense these days with the Colts, but you look at great teams around the NFL and one thing they all have is great offensive lines. As a former offensive lineman, its nice to see the guys in the trenches get some love.

I am so excited for this season to get under way..... I'm upset about comcast tho, making the NFL channel a pay channel after the 16 of this month, another $5.00 a month. Anyway, I loved the article GO COLTS!!!!

Great column. Sounds like my kind of footbgall player. I'll bet anything he's one of those guys who just loves to play the game.

Wow - that is some testament to the guy when Manning didn't even know he was in the game because he didn't notice any different in performance.
Pats are the BEST

Blah Blah Blah. Who cares. At least the article isn't about Moron Manning, the NFL equivalent of Mr. Ed.

Great job by Charlie Johnson. This is a wonderful testament to Charlie himself and his skills, but also to Bill Polian and the kind of people he drafts and to the Colts coaching staff who got Charlie prepared to do this flawless job on the biggest stage. Just a terrific article by Bob Kravitz, too. Go Colts!!
