Turnaround season for Colts

The Colts Dream season is over, but what a magical ride for fans!

When the Colts fired their general manager and coach a year ago, we thought it was the beginning of a multi-year rebuilding project.

In April, the game plan started to take shape. We traveled to New York, as the Colts drafted a young Stanford quarterback.

The Colts' future is now set with number 12. Andrew Luck is a fantastic QB and an even better person.

When the season started, I suggested the Colts would win six or seven games. This team proved all of us wrong in a big way, ending the season at 11-5.

From dramatic last-minute wins to Coach Pagano's emotional locker room speech, this has been a season to remember.

I've covered the Colts since 1992.  After 20 years, I have to admit it takes a lot to make me get emotionally involved. But this young team captured everyone's imagination in a special way.  Eleven wins and a playoff berth is quite an accomplishment. 

The future is very bright.  The Colts need some help in a few key areas to take the next step. The offensive line and defensive secondary need an upgrade. 

The Colts will be every active in the offseason. So, here's to next fall when The Colts go back to work.
