Some people are fans of the Indianapolis Colts. This Deadspin NFL team preview is for those in the latter group. Read all the previews so far here. Your record: After a start where it looked like new head coach Frank Reich was in way over his head and he was , the Colts ripped off nine wins in 10 games, frogstomped the Texans in their house in the wild card round, and then got ritually sacrificed to Patrick Mahomes and the Chiefs to close out their season.

Luck played college football for the Stanford Cardinal , where he won the Maxwell Award and Walter Camp Award as college football's player of the year and was twice recognized as an All-American. Although widely projected as the first overall selection in the NFL Draft , Luck decided to return to Stanford for his redshirt junior season. In his first three professional seasons, Luck led the Colts to three playoff appearances including two AFC South division titles in and , also earning a Pro Bowl selection in each season. During the season , Luck suffered an injury to his throwing shoulder but continued to play. That offseason he had surgery on the shoulder, forcing him to miss the entire season.
When the Peyton Manning era was coming to an end in , the Indianapolis Colts famously " sucked for Luck. Frank Reich is a better head coach than Chuck Pagano was, and general manager Chris Ballard has already established himself as one of the best executives in professional football. Luck was a big reason the Colts won nine of their last 10 regular-season games last year, but Reich and Ballard also put him in an ideal position to succeed. They were also successful because the offensive line—which for much of Luck's career was a tremendous liability—became a tremendous asset, with rookie guard Quenton Nelson earning an All-Pro nod. He should be even better in his sophomore campaign, as should second-year right tackle Braden Smith.
