Bill Barnwell claims with Peyton Manning this team would have struggled. Perhaps he's right, but I just can't see how.
Colts fans can take this as comforting or discomforting. On one hand, even if they had enjoyed 16 games of Peyton Manning, it seems likely that Indianapolis would have struggled to make the playoffs. Manning makes everyone else better, but there are just...
Before his injury Sunday, Jacob Lacey was showing the kind of skills that earned him a starting spot for the first seven weeks. Paul Kuharsky writes that after struggling through the middle part of the season Lacey's return to form was key for the Colts win:
Lacey is a soft-spoken, thoughtful guy who’s basically working as the No. 1 corner now with Jerraud Powers and Terrence...
Reggie Wayne was set to join NFL receiving royalty with another 1,000 yard season. That all changed with Manning's injury:
The string of 1,000-yard seasons, though, is in serious jeopardy. The absence of Peyton Manning and resulting revolving door and inconsistency at quarterback too often has rendered the passing game impotent.
Overall, the Colts have run the fewest offensive...
Colts coach Jim Caldwell took a deep breath and even cracked a smile Monday.
One day after ending a 14-game losing streak that started with last season's playoff loss, Caldwell was done dealing with questions about becoming the second team in league history to go 0-16. Instead, he was asked whether a strong finish this season might cost Indianapolis the coveted No. 1 draft pick...
Phil B. says that all the perseverance through this difficult season has paid off for both the players and fans alike:
Beyond that, I’m most happy for the fans who showed up as well as those near and far who kept watching and still had hope this could be done. You, like the players, have finally been rewarded for your devotion. I know it’s not much, this season still goes down...

Colts tight end Dallas Clark is out for Sunday's game against the Tennessee Titans with a neck injury. Clark missed four games after injuring his lower left leg, then played last week against Baltimore. Jacob Tamme will start in his place. Colts linebacker Philip Wheeler is out with a foot injury and Ernie Sims will replace him.
The Colts will have to win their last two games the same way they tried to win their first 14 -- without Peyton Manning.
The Colts will not join the Lions as the only teams to finish 0-16. Jacob Lacey returned an interception for a touchdown and Indy beat the Titans 20-6, ending its 14-game losing streak.
The Indianapolis Colts' magic number for clinching the first pick in the 2012 draft remains two after the Colts (1-13) beat Tennessee and both the Minnesota Vikings (2-12) and the St. Louis Rams (2-12) lost Sunday.
The Indianapolis Colts are winless no longer.
Peyton Manning confirmed a report by Jay Glazer of Fox Sports that he threw to Colts running backs and receivers last week after practice and that he still wants to play this year.
