Colts were in Baltimore 31 years. From 58- 71, the NFL mostly came down to Colts and Packers dominating. (And if there had been instant replay for FGs, Colts would have had one of the Packers Championships). Because of that, there are Numerous Colts in the Hall of Fame and Numbers retired.
Then they moved. Should've left the name and history behind. After all, the Browns moved, and Jim Brown isnt considered a Baltimore Brown. Baltimore had to start as the Ravens.
Two different eras now. Cant really compare athletes from 1959 to those of today. It's like comparing a 1959 F104 fighter to today's F22 Raptor.
Colts have been in Indy 34 years. They went to the playoffs in 87, and almost to the Super Bowl in 95. Colts were a Dominant team, winning Divisions and a Super Bowl from 2002- 2010. You would think we've had as many players recognized here as in Baltimore, but we haven't. So, to insist on a COMBINED Top 10 List, I'd say to only accept those (at a Minimum) who have been honored on the Ring of Honor, Hall of Fame, or number retired... if Mike Curtis isnt good enough to make it, how can Bob Sanders be considered???
