Kyle Rodriguez looks back at 2003's draft which brought the Colts three starters and two Classic Colts. The big win was Dallas Clark but don't forget they Colts bagged one of our favorites, Cato June, and one of the great clutch defensive players of his generation: Robert Mathis.
Mathis wasn’t a big need, and he likely could have lasted longer, although I don’t know if he would have lasted until #162, the Colts next pick. However, he was clearly the best player on the board at the time, and turned out to be a steal of a pick.

Indianapolis Colts fans are well on their way to accomplishing their goal for the 2011 season. The goal itself may have changed rapidly over the course of the offseason, but Indy has done a great job of conquering it. With only six games remaining in the season, the Colts have a stranglehold on last place [...]
He deserves better than this.
With your help, he might get it.
It has to be killing Jeff Saturday to endure this season. In what could well be his final season in blue and white, he's played some of his finest football and shown why his name will be enshrined in Lucas Oil Stadium's Ring of Honor one day. Saturday has anchored the line and played at his typical Pro...

The Colts now have a two-game lead in the Suck For Luck race, all but ensuring themselves a shot at drafting Peyton Manning’s eventual replacement. The only thing standing in their way could be Manning’s objection.
Apparently that won’t be an issue.
According to an AP report, Bill Polian stated “Peyton and I have spoken about [drafting his successor], and he’s OK with that...
(Note: I'll be traveling over the weekend. Monday's post will be a comparison of the 1997 and 1999 Colts to show how the roster was turned over in two years).
With the Colts on a bye week, no harm can be done. There are four teams with two wins right now: Carolina, Miami, Minnesota, and St. Louis. As of this morning, the tie breaker standings for the first overall pick look...
Colts QB Curtis Painter is far from the only reason the club is 0-10 and the front-runner in the Andrew Luck derby but his recent struggles have led to his benching in each of the past two losses. Although head coach Jim Caldwell has been noncommittal to naming a starter for the club's Week 12 contest against Carolina, Pro Football Weekly hears it is likely Painter again will...
Dwight Freeney knows where to go to take his mind off a forgettable NFL season. The bye weekend off means an escape to New York. It always has for the Indianapolis Colts defensive end. If you're a handsome eligible bachelor who makes millions, what's not to like?
This tweet from Colts' owner Jim Irsay made me bust up laughing instantly:
Here’s a fun game of Internet telephone, in which Adam Schefter not reporting anything led to a report of reports about a report.
1. In his weekly Monday mailbag, the ESPN.com reporter and longtime Shanahan confidante received a question about the Redskins’ endless search for a franchise quarterback.

New York Giants quarterback Eli Manning said he believes his older brother Peyton has a chance to return and play for the Indianapolis Colts this year. Peyton Manning, of course, has missed the entire season because of a third surgery on his neck, but has not been placed on injured reserve by the winless Indianapolis Colts. "Maybe he could be back this year," Eli told USA...
The Indianapolis Colts, and much of Colts Nation, is in denial. While they are frothing at the mouth about securing the services of Stanford quarterback Andrew Luck -- his father, Oliver, reiterated to me that Andrew is definitely coming out in the draft -- they continue to believe there is some way Peyton Manning will stick around while helping Luck earn a Ph.D. in Advanced Quarterbacking.
Colts vice chairman Bill Polian revealed that Dallas Clark (lower leg) could be back in three weeks.

Fantasy Advice: At this point, does it really matter if he does come back? The Colts have been eliminated from the playoffs several weeks ago, but it sounds like the team has no intentions of placing Clark on injured reserve. Last year’s waiver-wire here...
