It is hard to call a team overrated that went 2-14 last year. This same team which won the "Suck for Luck" sweepstakes has experienced a significant overhaul.
It has a new GM, Ryan Grigson, a new offensive coordinator, Bruce Arians, and a new coach, Chuck Pagano.
Of the 90 players who reported to Colts training camp, 60 are in their first camp.
Twenty-six players are...
Despite never playing one NFL snap, Coby Fleener is already picking up accolades, putting him one step ahead of Stanford teammate and Colts' rookie sensation Andrew Luck.
