2013 Training Camp: Colts Edition

Let's assume, for a second, that you haven't been following the draft, trades, or any offseason activity whatsoever; then, by chance, you decide that the 'links' section of ColtsAuthority.com is going to catch you up on everything you need to know about Indy's 2013 squad. While some posts are slightly more arbitrary than others, Ryan Wilson's Training Camp Preview: Colts Edition has everything you've missed.

The basic tenet [is to protect Luck], which is why general manager Ryan Grigson wasted little time signing former Lions first-round pick Gosder Cherilus and making him the starting right tackle. The team also used its second- and third-round picks in April's NFL Draft to take guard Hugh Thornton and center Khaled Holmes. The theme: Protect the face of the franchise.

It's a good article, covers everything you need to know (literally), and has a link to a 2012 article about Indy's chances with a rookie quarterback; scrolling down produces this gem:
 
Do you know why [the Colts] aren't even going to win 5 games, let alone 7, 8, or 9? They just got rid of all the weapons Luck was supposed to have, Reggie's going to go wherever Peyton goes, Garcon is going to be snatched up by a different team, and He is going to have no offensive line. He's going to get murdered on the field. I actually feel badly for Luck. I would rather have RGIII, if I were the Colts. Then again, they only go for name brands.
 
Ha. I mean, not that we were terrible optimistic ourselves, but 'ha' nonetheless.
