Some Colts fans have seen this before

A reader sent Mike Chappell of the Indianapolis Star an interesting piece of advice:

QUESTION: Not a question, but a comment. I’ve been Colts fan since John Unitas was at the helm. When that era sadly ended and Johnny U was shipped to San Diego, I was appalled and embarrassed for the Colts and the NFL. That’s when the business end of the NFL rang true. So my advice to the nouveau Colts fans is to let this new scheme play out, because you can’t go backward, only forward. So many variables with young players. Let’s give the new regime a chance to prove itself.

ANSWER: No comment on your comment, other than “well said.’’ We’ll see if everyone else is as patient. It’s going to be a trying time if Andrew Luck and the Colts struggle this season, and Peyton Manning leads the Denver Broncos deep into the playoffs. Also, everyone will be comparing Luck’s progress to that of Robert Griffin III. But all of that is what makes things so intriguing.

Well said indeed.

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.
