    Colts are #1, all of you Pats fans who keep spewing out these lame excuses for last year, GET OVER IT

    say it with me now, THE INDIANAPOLIS COLTS ARE THE CURRENT/DEFENDING SUPERBOWL CHAMPIONS, YOUR EXCUSES WILL NEVER EVER CHANGE THAT

    and I think the argument can easily be made that this years colts will be better than last years version

    Really? How do you figure? What changes and/or additions have they made to improve? and their division is getting much better.

    The way I look at it, ONE AND DONE...

    Sure, well on the offensive side adding Gonzales will be a huge plus since the majority of the last few seasons we've been playing without a true slot reciever. Allowing Clark to play more at his natural TE position will kick our O up more than a few notches, which is scary in itself since we already have had one of if not the best offense in the league the past few years. Not to mention Addai should continue progressing into one of the best RB's in the league

    On the defensive side, many forget that the Colts had one of the worst regular season rushing defenses of all time last year. That being said, how much worse could the colts get this year then?? I look at some addition by subtraction. While Cato June was statisically one of the colts strongest defensive players anyone who actually watched colt games knows the liability he was in the tacking area. Our coaching staff is very high on keicho and I believe he will be a upgrade to Cato as far as not getting trucked and pancaked by recievers

    David and Harper were good players, but Marlin Jackson has shown for years he can step up in any positon he's needed at and excell, whether it's sfaety or DB. Kelvin Hayden is a playmaker and I have high confidence in him coming into next year and playing solid

    As far as our DLine go Booger McFarland is still here, with the slight chance of Simon returning, we all know about Dwight Freeney . And lord willing Sanders will make a extended appearence in the regular season.(But even if he doesn't we all know what he can do when its crutch time) Many forget how injured the Colts D was the majority of the season, missing doss, sanders, simon, reagor, and thats just the few I can name off the top of my head

    that being said, there is my clear argument on why next years version of the colts could very well be better than last years superbowl champions

    Duh.

    But this is about rankings for 2007 and who won in 2006 is irrelevant to that.

    weak...and stop with the Gonzales thing. The guy has yet to play a freaking down in the NFL. Just because John Clayton (the dungeon master himself)thinks he is the greatest receiver ever does not make it so since he is the Colts biggest fan. Look, saying your losses are no big deal is ridiculous. You lose both starting corners, a starting middle linebacker, half of the running back tandem (let's see how Addai does full time now), your team is weaker. Corey Simon? Good luck with that one (guy does not like to work out and is done with football, not to mention Polian himself saying he was his worst acquisition ever)...the Colts will always score points. It's stopping the opposition that will be a problem.

    Cannot wait to see Daymeion Hughes cover Randy Moss...

    Say it with me...ONE AND DONE

    So the colts lose a backup RB, 2 corners who were more a product of THE SYSTEM rather than raw talent, and we're doomed.

    I can tell your one of those fans who know absolutely nothing about the colts but just hopped on the "Well they lost 3 starters so the sky is falling crowd"

    The point is not that the colts didn't lose these players, obviously they did. The point IS that the players lost are easily replaceable in the colts system, which has been operating the same way for about 5 years. If you think the differences between David/Harper and Hayden/Jackson were the difference in the SB championship then you are quite mistaken.

    I'm not going to argue the Cato June point again, some people just don't get it

    Dominique Rhodes had a hell of a playoff run, that being said I do not doubt that the colts can find a back to provide similar production especially since addai will be taking the majority of the carries this season

    Not true. I can tell you are a jackass trying to cause trouble. And Rhodes shared time with Addai. Whatever. I guess we will have to wait and see. You really ought to go back to your Colt boards and circle jerk with them. It is apparent that many Colt fans can't accept reality...try this one...at least nobody will disagree with you. He's go about as much intellect as you...

    So, Big Blue Shoe...go back to your own blog, idiot.

    Oh, and the 5 years they "system" has been in place in Indy has produced what? ONE Title...hmmmmm, interesting.

    I find it hilarious how I claerly provided reasoning why I believe the colts will be better without resorting to childish name calling, and because you have absolutely nothing to refute my argument you choose to take that route. Oh well what more can I expect from a Pats troll like yourself

    read the last line in my sig again, i put it there for trolls like yourself

    And us colt fans do accept reality. Its the reality that the colts are THE CURRENT WORLD CHAMPIONS. As hard as some of you pats fans try to escape that reality sorry to say its STILL reality

    It could very well be that the Colts didn't really lose that much in talent-level. The players that left can be replaced by others with similar talent. However, they did lose some in the experience and leadership department. I'm not sure if the players that are supposed to step into the vacated CB and LB spots are up there. And when you promote players, you'll have to find replacements for their back-up positions. Furthermore I don't think any Colts players (apart from their PK :) ) has had experience playing with a bulls eye on their chest. Becoming a champion is one thing, defending a title is something completely different. Every opponent will be ready to take them on. And it is more the rule than the exception that teams that have won a championship lose a bit off their edge. And it's not just the Pats that will be looking forward to a rematch. I can imagine the Chargers want to make their point on being the best team in the NFL (and/or AFC).

    True. And, congratulations to the Colts. Enjoy. But, I am still trying to figure out how a Patriot fan on a Patriot board can be a troll. This coming from a Colt fan with 8 posts. That, to me is a troll...maybe I missed something??

    a troll is any fan who calls someone a "jackass" or a "idiot" for responding with sound reason. I said I believed that it could be argued that next years colts could be better than last years roster. Someone asked me to explain that, and I did. now somewhere in between that I became a jackass and a idiot. So clearly your just a pats TROLL

    Really? Thanks for the clarification. Now, is it specifically "jackass" or "idiot"? or are other words acceptable? Because I could use others, too.

    Really BigBlueShoe...you are not fooling anyone...why don't you go back to YOUR blog and write some more ingenius opinions about your Colts.

    The silver lining to the Colts winning the SB is that it will be 100 times better watching them blow another playoff game (hopefully in Foxboro) and losing their crown.

    These Colts fans don't realize that once you reach the top you will only go down from there.
