The Dude abides.
Am I the only one who thinks it's hilarious and awesome that Luck has a cheapo flip phone? At least we know he'll be focusing on football and not Angry Birds...

@bjones419 How have all of the other "more athletic" QBs panned out in winning the Super Bowl? Oh yeah, they haven't. I'll take a smarter, better thrower.

I always knew you were a closet Jags fan! What better way to slowly make your way onto Kitty Purrs, or whatever their fan blog is named.

A phenomenal piece of writing, Nate! I find it hilarious and maddening that some sap from New York can write a piece about how Hoosiers don't really like Peyton Manning. What does he know? Are we all just in-betweeners anyway?

It's pretty cool to know that the Colts can be so much more than just a hobby to watch. I've always considered professional sports players as over-paid entertainers, but in this case they are inspirational and life-changing. Cool stuff!

As an artist I can appreciate the simplicity of the Colts' logo, and as a businessman I can appreciate the continuity and brand recognition that it has. However, I think some subtle changes could be made to make it pop a little more. I stress the word subtle.

Excellent analyses and draft strategy. I have no clue how the other GMs picked, so I can't be too critical of what you've taken, but I'd like to see some more love in the trenches. One DT and one OG probably won't cut it, I'm afraid, unless we make a few splashes in free agency. That being said, I wouldn't be unhappy if this is how our draft ended up.

"Patriots fans had invaded my stadium to celebrate their team and it was my sworn duty to make the game experience as miserable as possible for them."
This. This. This a thousand times over. My brother and I went to the Pats/Colts game in '09 (I believe it was) for the infamous "4th and 2" game. I spent at least an hour after the game running up to every Pats fan I saw on the street, and immediately falling onto the ground holding my throat while making choking sounds. Am I proud of it? No. Wait, yes I am. Very proud. Was it immature? Absolutely. Welcome to my world.
The point is that I wanted to beat into their thick skulls that they are not welcome in our house.

Oh. My. God. This is the best thing I've seen, football related, since Manning hoisted the Lombardi.

The best movie speech of all time? Clearly you haven't heard Mikey's speech at the bottom of the Moss Garden wishing well in The Goonies. Clearly.
In all seriousness, I like your post. The only problem I see is that it requires a ton of players to sacrifice money for the chance at making a run. There's no guarantee they'll win another Super Bowl. There's no guarantee none of them get severely injured and have to retire early. There's no guarantee that Manning will be the same as he was in years past. The only guarantee they have is the money that is written into their contracts, and if modern professional football is consistent in any way it's that players will sacrifice being on a good team in order to get paid more money.
I've really enjoyed watching Garcon progress into a viable deep threat this year. Coming from a small school, then making it into the NFL only to earn criticism for inconsistent play, and finally showing that hard work and dedication pay off. It's such a shame that he had CP throwing to him all season instead of the GOAT.
He's a fan favorite because he's dedicated, genuine, humble, and passionate. You really can't go wrong with a combination like that.

Colt18_4life Lol, wow. I find it very, very amusing that your title states that you are a "Colt for life", yet you are done with this team if Peyton doesn't play for us next year. I could meticulously shred the juxtaposition seen here, but it'd be too easy. Candy from a baby, et al.
