Scott Kacsmar (yes, our own Captain Comeback) says the 2012 Colts are hoping for a reincarnation as something better. He wisely tempers our expectations however with this prognosis:
Totally premature 2012 diagnosis: It’s going to be a real struggle for the Colts in 2012. Unless Chuck Pagano is the next coach to get the “genius” label, Andrew Luck exceeds the hype with an incredible rookie season, and they draft a class that can rival the 1974 Pittsburgh Steelers, the Colts have virtually no shot at competing for a Super Bowl or even playoff spot this season. A 5-11 finish would be considered a very successful season.
I couldn't agree more. Five wins would electrify me. Heck, 3 wins would make me happy if they showed signs of becoming what we need them to become.
