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.

Polian says Manning “OK” with Colts drafting Luck

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.

Who to Root For: Bye Week

(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).

Kravitz: Colts' best options don't include Manning

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.
