We see it all the time. A once great team manages to keep all of its key components, but inexplicably, that team appears to be just a shell of its former self. The most recent case was the 2011 Indianapolis Colts. Yes, I realize that the biggest key of all, Peyton Manning, was absent, but even the rest of the team looked a little slower, and a lot less effective. What happened to...
