In early August, the Colts were the 5th best odds to win the Super Bowl. That is how far Ballard had brought us until Luck quit.
I haven't seen a Colts team this good in a long time. Great O-line. Good RB group. Good TE group of Doyle Ebron and Cox. Good WR group of Hilton, Funchess, Campbell, Pascal, Rogers and Fountain. A much improved defense that is right in the middle in YPG and PPG despite having a poor passing offense.
This team would be in the hunt for a 1st round bye with Luck or another good QB.
Ballard has done great. Think about how thin and poor this team was when he took over.
