Changing of the guard

Mike Chappell writes that the uncertainty this offseason could replace the foundation on which the team was built:

Still, shatter a core that’s been so successful for more than a decade? Will Manning, Saturday, Wayne, Diem and others go the way of Edgerrin James, Marvin Harrison, Marcus Pollard, Tarik Glenn and so many who preceded them?

“You certainly know that it’s a possibility,” Manning said. “The longer you play, you realize that you can’t play with the same guys or have the same scenario that you always had. That’s just part of growing up and getting older and I’m aware of that.

About Todd Smith

Todd Smith is a part-time sportswriter who spends too much time arguing on Twitter. What he really loves is eating poorly and watching football. He got his first Colts t-shirt in 1984 shortly after the Mayflower trucks arrived and has never given up on his hometown team. He also still holds to the belief that Kordell Stewart stepped out of the end zone and thus cheated the Colts.
