Clark Judge thinks the Colts are losing beautifully but will be laughing in the end: 1. Indianapolis -- People talk about what a great year the Packers are having, but my admiration is for the Colts. They almost always win division championships, except when they don't -- and then they win the best quarterback to come along since ... well, since Peyton Manning. Talk about continuity. People tell me situations like what happened in Green Bay with Brett Favre and Aaron Rodgers can't happen anymore ... that they're aberrations ... but you're looking at one, folks. Manning deserves more than just MVP consideration this fall; he should be Executive of the Year, too. Because his loss put the Colts in the position they're in now, and the position they're in now goes something like this: You trade one season of hardship for 10-15 of prosperity. Don't tell me Bill Polian isn't a genius.
