The Indianapolis Colts are accustomed to fast starts, not winless ones. This year, they're in uncharted territory. Peyton Manning still hasn't played a down, the injuries are mounting and the Colts head into a three-game road trip as the league's only 0-5 team. Each successive loss draws the ire of fans who are calling for changes on defense. And the calls grow to tank this season, so the Colts can select Stanford quarterback Andrew Luck with the No. 1 pick in next year's draft. Indy hasn't been in this dire a situation since 1997 - the year before Manning, the Colts' longest-tenured player - joined the club. Yet, the Colts insist they can pull themselves out of this tailspin.
