They lost several players..yes but none that I would consider "key" players. They still have Manning, Wayne, Harrison,Clark and Vinateri and the key to their defense ,Sanders. I dont know how good their chances are for a SB repeat bur I dont see why we should be worried about their one SB compared to the Steelers. Lets focus on watching our guys get back to the awesomeness we know their capable of!

They lost Cato June,who really stepped up big in the playoffs for that defense.

They also lost Rhodes,who was a big part of that offense and should have been the MVP of Super Bowl XLI.He brought a toughness to that offense that the other RB can't and won't.They'll go back to being soft.

The colts are still definitely talented on offense and their defense surprised alot of people late last year including myself. But do I see the repeating? No, I dont think so, because the Steelers including Big Ben are gonna be on a mission. And if our O line comes back strong and Big Ben and Co. stays healthy I think that we can return to the glory land on earth "Super Bowl"

The Colts have as good a chance as any of winning next year - they nearly always draft well and will probably fill their needs this year.

The way their offense plays, their D doesn't have to be anything more than average alot of the time.

The biggest issue will be the potential change in mentality that winning the big one brings - they could gain great confidence and become unstoppable.

Or they could lose that burning desire to prove they can win it all, now that they finally achieved it.

I am still at a total loss to explain what happened to their D in the postseason.

I'm glad the target is on their backs instead of ours. EVERYBODY will out to beat the Colts and we're under the radar again.....where we do best.

Even if they didnt lose any key players it would still be almost immposible. It is so hard to win when every one has you circeled on there schedule and are gunning for you

They said that about the stillers last year but they also say that about every team who win the bowl.

Sure the Colts could be legitimate contenders for a repeat, but I don't see it happening. Peytoon and his brigade of above-average wideouts are always a threat and the running game with Addai generates enough yardage to keep them honest. Defensively, they've had some changes and it is hard to predict just yet how those changes will affect their defensive schemes. They looked great in SB XLI but remember who their opponent was - da Bears with Rex Grossman.

Besides - the Steelers are going to win SB XLII, so the Colts are a moot point anyway.

rob morris was talking to carl banks the other day and he said the explanation was simple.

they made tackles. it started to piss them off, with all the critisizm and people calling them the worst defense. and worse, was everybody questionning if they were too small or if the scheme was wrong and ineffective. everytime when they would study the tape the players were always in the proper position, and they were simply not making the tackle. their pride took a blow and they wanted to prove everybody wrong so each defensive player took it upon themselves to actually make the play they were in position to make.

i think the colts will play more confident and relaxed next season. as long as theyre focussed and not distracted by things such as peyton riding motorcycles, or who will coach them in 08, i see no reason they should fall off their pedestal like the steelers did.

They definitely missed alot of open field tackles, but its still mystifying why they allowed it to continue for so long.

The Jax game was a total humiliation - maybe that was the final straw.

I think one major factor was Bob Sanders - he made alot of plays behind the LOS - he is great at diagnosing plays early and getting to the ball carrier.

We'll see how it plays out next year, I guess - thanks for the info.
