In Search of a New NFL Team: Indianapolis Colts

I am on a quest to find a new NFL team. I'm going team by team to find out which team is the best fit for me. Now let's look at the AFC South. If you've been following along you know that this is the division out of which my original team comes from. Am I really going to pick a mistress team within the division? Let's take a look at the Colts.


Out of all of the teams in the AFC South this is the only team that has won a Super Bowl...EVER. That alone is grounds for me to select the Colts. They have several players that I love and they have a winning tradition. Something I'm missing over there in Tennessee. We'll start with the no-brainer. I went to Tennessee. I like Peyton. It's that simple. He wins with starters, back-ups, scrubs, whomever they put out there he can score TDs. My favorite WR in the league just so happens to be Reggie Wayne, who plays for the Colts. What scares me about Wayne is that although he's coming off a terrific '10 campaign and has been adamant about wanting a long-term deal — the Colts generally don't do with players in their 30's. If the Colts draft a wide receiver in April I feel Wayne's Colts days are numbered. Bummer. In addition to Wayne their crop of WR's and TE's is a great group! Pierre Garcon, Austin Collie, Dallas Clark, Anthony Gonzalez, Jacob Tamme, etc. On the defensive side the Colts have one of my favorites in Dwight Freeney. The spin move is almost legendary at this point. He can do no wrong in my eyes. If there was a team that I would pick to be my mistress team within the division it would be the Colts. Remember when everyone was for the New Orleans Saints because of Katrina? I wasn't. I was for the Colts. Unless they are playing the Titans I am always for the Colts. 


Tomorrow I'm going to list my pro's and con's for staying with the Titans. Might be a short one.
