Entering last season the Colts were coming off a season where they recorded a 10–6 record and captured a second consecutive AFC South championship. They organization also had made the playoffs for the ninth consecutive year. The Colts were looking to set an NFL record for most consecutive playoff appearances with 10 and were trying to become the first NFL team to play a Super Bowl in their home stadium.
Those dreams were dashed when it revealed Peyton Manning had multiple off –season surgeries on his neck. The franchise quarterback missed the entire season and the Colts finished with a 2-14. This was the worst regular season record by a Colts team since 1991 and they failed to make the playoffs for the first time since 1999. The Colts were the first team in NFL history to come off nine straight playoff appearances, and then start the following season 0-13.
But it was not the offense that was bad it was the whole team. The defense could not stop anybody and it was not like Peyton played on both sides of the ball. It begged the question could Peyton Manning win the NFL MVP without even stepping on the field? The Colts finished with the worst record in the league and changes were coming. The team decided it would go in a new direction and the team selected with the first pick quarterback Andrew Luck from Stanford. The writing was on the wall that a change was coming at the quarterback position. Manning was asked to be released by the Colts after serious discussion. Who would have thought a time when Peyton Manning would not be the Colts quarterback?
With inception of new blood on the team, the Colts look to return to the glory days of the past. There is a buzz around the Colts again like there was when Peyton was drafted by the team in 1998.
