2008 Record: 12-4
ATS: 8-7-1

While offensive coordinator Tom Moore and offensive line coach Howard Mudd will be back before the start of the season, the Indianapolis Colts will have at least one major coaching change as Tony Dungy retired this offseason.

But it should still be status quo for Indy, which should mean about 10 wins – give or take – and another division crown.

The Colts had a lot of issues heading into the season last year.

Left tackle became a big hole, center Jeff Saturday was injured, Peyton Manning was coming off of knee surgery but with everyone back, the Colts shouldn’t have another slow start.

The team spent a first-round pick on running back Donald Brown, which sends a clear message to former first-round pick, Joseph Addai, but the result will probably be a lethal duo in the backfield. With Addai being forced to share, he should be stronger and fresher throughout the entire season.

At wide receiver, the Colts have groomed Anthony Gonzalez to take over Marvin Harrison’s role for a few years, so that’s not an issue, but someone will need to fill in for Harrison in the slot. It’s not a major concern, though, with Dallas Clark around.

On defense, the Colts have a very deep front line, which is surprisingly anonymous. Dwight Freeney and Robert Mathis are the big names while Marcus Howard could breakout.

The secondary returns strong with Kelvin Hayden, Marlin Jackson, Bob Sanders and Antoine Bethea. This is a fairly sound group but a lot is contingent on the health of Sanders. Meanwhile, the linebacking corps has a familiar face in the middle with Gary Brackett but the outside spots will be up for grabs.

Overall, the Colts are status quo. The offense will be among the best in the NFL while the defense will do enough to compete. If either aspect of the team exceeds expectations, this could be a Super Bowl season but the likely result is a first or second-round playoff exit.

Super Bowl Odds: +1415

  1. Is this serios?? says:

    This is a joke. The colts winning the conference?? No way. Titans got it. The texans have a better chance of winning the division. The colts dominance is over. Peyton will retire after a horrible season. Titans-1 Texans-2 Colts-3

  2. I really think the Texans are this years Cardinals…everyone is picking them to win the South, but really it won’t happen till next year. They don’t know how to WIN yet.

  3. How can people bet against Peyton? Look, some things have changed in Indy (coaching), but the pieces that matter (the players) are largely the same – a classy nucleus that plays the game the way it was meant to be played. I believe that the Colts will be motivated after an underachieving season, and that they will rebound to win their conference. In Peyton I trust!

  4. Poolside Rant says:

    The Colts are the best team in this division and for now they are safe to sit at the top. It is getting harder for Peyton to piece it together but he has enough at his disposal for another year. I see an early exit in the playoffs but the defense just isn’t good enough to compete with the best and the offense hasn’t looked unstoppable like it used to. 1st in the AFC South.
