In Peyton Manning’s first year with the Colts, the team won three games. In his last year, they won two.
In the first year without him, the Colts could perhaps win as many as they did in those two seasons combined.
Mike Chappell of the Indianapolis Star joined PFT Live on Friday to discuss a variety of Colts issues, and Chappell ultimately suggested that the team could emerge with five or six wins, thanks to a home slate that includes games against the Vikings, Jaguars, Browns, Dolphins, and Bills.
And let’s not forget a Week 17 visit from a team that never has won in Indianapolis: the Texans.
Chappell also discussed the delayed signing of quarterback Andrew Luck, the team’s decision not to take advantage of the new blackout rule, and issues on both sides of the ball as the 2012 season approaches.
