It has been amazing for me to watch the Colts' implosion this year. Look at their past 9 seasons: 10-6 12-4 12-4 14-2 12-4 13-3 12-4 14-2 10-6 Now this year, they're 0-6, and have looked very bad in the process. Their scores: at Hou: L, 34-7 vs Cle: L, 27-19 vs Pit: L, 23-20 at TB: L, 24-17 vs KC: L, 28-24 at Cin: L, 27-17 Average score: Opp: 27.2, Ind 17.3 That's a -10 points per game. Their offense is ranked #28 in points, and #31 in yards. Their defense is ranked #28 in points allowed and #26 in yards allowed. I realize those rankings are obviously going to result in a pretty bad team. But this team went from a 10-win team last year (and averaging over 12 wins a year over the past 9 seasons) to a horrible, horrible team. And, really, the only difference is that they don't have Peyton Manning. So it makes me wonder: Is he really that good? It would seem like it, if he can make that big a difference.
