It’s been a long road for the Colts since Peyton Manning left for Denver. Yes, they replaced him with a generational talent in Andrew Luck, but the battered quarterback retired before he could fulfill his destiny in Indiana. These days the team is an embarrassment to the NFL (via CBS Sports).
They’ve tried to fill the gaps with Philip Rivers and Carson Wentz but it didn’t work. Then they brought in Matt Ryan, who had clearly fallen off a cliff in terms of talent and was benched twice. In 2022, the team suffered the worst comeback in NFL history when they gave up a 33-0 lead against the Minnesota Vikings. They also appointed ESPN analyst Jeff Saturday as head coach despite his complete lack of coaching experience.
