Andy Benoit: INDY PREVIEW, YEAR TWO

Bigger. Better. In his article, "A Cinderella Sequel", Andy Benoit makes sure to hammer home how fun this season is set up to be. If you're looking to gear up for 2013, or just want to read about Andrew Luck's supremacy as the "unquestioned best" young quarterback in football, look no further.

When Peyton Manning and Irsay held their March 7, 2012, farewell press conference, no one imagined the Colts would enter the 2013 season primed for a second straight playoff appearance. Now, with the foundation this “rebuilding” franchise suddenly has in place, just making the playoffs is no longer the goal. A second straight wild-card loss would be a major disappointment.

When Peyton Manning and Irsay held their March 7, 2012, farewell press conference, I vaguely remember staring off into space, remembering how good football used to be and wondering if pro-lacrosse was any good. I mean, how great was an 11-5 season, when everything pointed to a 4-12 mess? We won't get anything like that this year – I think every Colts fan expects us to get at least 8 or 9 – but any consistency should be enough to keep our heart rate down a bit in the fourth quarter.
