The Colts Authority:
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.

AROUND THE WEB
A radio report on Monday stated that the Indianapolis Colts are seriously considering using the No. 1 pick in the upcoming NFL draft on Baylor's Robert Griffin III instead of Stanford's Andrew Luck.
THANKS BUT NO THANKS
Indianapolis Colts owner Jim Irsay tweeted Tuesday morning that the team's request to hold a private workout for Robert Griffin III has been declined by the quarterback's agent.
The Colts seemingly are incredibly interested in Robert Griffin III in the upcoming draft or are at least doing their best to convince us they're interested.
Nate Dunlevy tackles this possibility with his usual deft touch:
Sorry, not buying it. If they were making a late-in-the-game push to go after Luck then that means they didn't have enough information back in March...
This won’t be the last report we hear from somoene that is apparently, “in the know.” But ESPN personality, and former Washingotn Post columnist Michael Wilbon was on the air with PTI colleague Tony Kornheiser and informed him that people that he has spoken with within the Indianapolis Colts organization have led him to believe that there is a real possiblity that the Heisman...
A lot has been said over the last few days about the Indianapolis Colts interest in Robert Griffin III, and now word is that he is refusing to meet with the team for a private workout, according to team owner Jim Irsay.
A Luck private workout 2day..we want 2b as thorough n disciplined n process of #1 pick..we wanted 2do private with RG3,but his agent said no

Nate is at it again and his time he's got a full seven round mock draft for the Colts including some names high on my list. I'm particularly fond of his second and third round picks although I doubt they both are available at those spots:
34th (second) - Coby Fleener, TE, Standford
Again, I've said my peace on this one, too. The Colts have obvious defensive needs,...
Robert Griffin III turned down the Colts' request for a private workout. In fact, he turned down all requests for private workouts and Adam Schefter has a few theories why Griffin was reluctant to show his wares again. First among those reasons Schefter proposes is that Griffin feels he's proved himself already. He also suggests perhaps Griffin simply prefers going to Washington...
Indianapolis Colts owner Jim Irsay claimed Tuesday that quarterback Robert Griffin III declined an invitation to work out privately for the team.
The statement from Irsay, if confirmed, appeared to cement the notion that the Colts will select former Stanford star Andrew Luck as their replacement for Peyton Manning.
Luck will work out for the Colts on Tuesday in Indianapolis, and...
My advice today for GMs is considerably more simple than the previous lessons: make the most of what you have today. Ryan Grigson: LISTEN UP!
The average tenure for a general manager with a team (excluding dictators Jerry Jones and Mike Brown) is 4.2 years. The median for GMs is 3 years. Coaches fare a bit worse with an average of 3.3 years and a mean of 2 years. In other words...
It has been widely speculated that the Indianapolis Colts will draft Stanford’s Andrew Luck with the #1 pick in the upcoming NFL draft. After having released future Hall of Fame quarterback Peyton Manning, Colts’ owner and social media star, Jim Irsay, has been hinting that the Colts are taking a serious look at drafting Baylor’s...Read the Rest...
