This gonna be an exceptional entry, as today's subject isn't the Colts, or not entirely.
Miami Dolphins won SB with an extraordinary, outstanding, 100% performance in 1973. That was the only time, when an NFL team won an SB with a "faultless" season. And I think, this record gonna be untouched for good, if there will ever be an other team being able to repeat this record.
In 2009, Colts was at 14-0, when Caldwell's decided to rest his starters. Many Colts' fan thought he let slip a 19-0 season.Thats very unlikely...considering last seasons teams with the best regular season stats weren't able to win SB, just think of Pats in 2008 and 2011.
I think, DOlphins' record may be untouched, as football have changed a lot over the past 40 years, and imposes such physical and psychical load on players that makes almost impossible to show up top form in 19 games, and possibility of injuries is also high, so an NFL team chasing after perfect season is judged to lose. I see only a little chance for an NFL team having such strong roster that may keep up until the SB, where starters may play in top form.
So very likely, we won't hear 1973 Dolphins players' cry, and they can have their champaign every season.
This weekend rookie minicamp is on, and perhaps our roster has players, those will deliver next perfect season in NFL history. A. Luck is able to lead this team to victory, however I wouldn't put my expectations high. I would be really happy if we can see at the end of the season, that chemistry is working, players can apply O- and D-play schemes, regardless to how many wins will we have.
I think this roster is underrated, and has more talents, than any analyst may think.
This entry's title is inspired by an other great song:
Have a nice weekend Coltsland!
