Steve :

It's all over but the shouting. Saint Tony Dungy can now ascend into the heavens on a cloud -- his work on this earth is complete...

Cuthbert :

Night night Indy. The dynasty is over. Time for the last arthritic days as the aging Colts choke their way to a finale so embarrassing that it soils the memory of their once great days.

Jean Paul :

I think it takes more time than you think to recover from the kind of surgeries Manning went through and without Sanders there defense is not ready to be high level. Wait until they are healthy before you count them out.

Douglas :

Dynasty?

What dynasty. Last time I checked 1 SB does not make a dynasty.

They are no longer perennial contenders.

DM.

Michael :

I think they'll right the boat, but not in time to contend for anything this year. Injuries have hurt them since training camp. Peyton isn't up to speed yet. Marvin seems unhappy. The offense isn't intimidating anyone right now. The defense is back to it's old ways again. They still have talent and a good staff, I think they just have too much working against them this year.

Peter :

The end of a Colts era? No. The beginning of a new (post Favre) era for the Packers? Yes.

Blocking First :

After the Saturday injury it was all lost for good. When the O-line breaks down the team breaks down. He was the key. Most fans don't even notice, but as goes the front five so goes the squad.

Anonymous :

Calling this the "Colts Era" in the NFL would be like calling this the "Phil Mickleson Era" in Golf.

Rich from Baltimore :

March 29, 1984. I still hate this team now. They kept the name, and can go to hell as far as I am concerned. Perfect weekend - Redskins and Ravens win. Colts lose.

Frank Kush :

The Colts era left on the Mayflower!

ewazm5639 :

The "Colts Era" ended on March 28, 1984. Your beloved Jack Kent Cooke was a big part of allowing this travesty. Despite the fact that he and the league tried to shove the Redskins down our throats for 10 years, we never went over to the dark side.

So, finally, Modell moves his team here. While the Colts got to take our name and heritage, Cleveland got to keep theirs. And to add insult to injury, the NFL writers are keeping Art Modell out of the HOF because of the move.

Baltimore has been a top-tier NFL town for over a half-century now. It's time for the league to get the chip off its shoulder when it comes to us.

Eileen :

I wonder if the Colts ever regret sneaking out of Baltimore under cover of darkness and snow.

UncleWillis :

To all Baltimore Colt fans . . . we're sorry. We in Indianapolis didn't "steal" your beloved franchise. The owner decided to move the team, right or wrong, based on the almighty dollar. What were we going to do, send the team back? A pretty decent team shows up overnight and we're supposed to ignore it?

You know what? I bet if you asked the fans walking out of Lucas Oil Stadium if they had the choice in 1984, would they want the Colts moving in from Baltimore, or would they want to start fresh with a new franchise, the majority would say they would have wanted a new franchise.

Bring a mop :

Colts fans, do you know the sound of the smallest violin in world playing just for you? It's similar to the sound of Peyton's infected bursa sack rupturing across Lukoil field. "Clean-up, 35 yard line!"

Coach Reese :

The Colts aren't done until Manning is done playing football. With the draft and free agency the Colts could be championship contenders by June 2010. However, the Colts may have to ask Peyton to chip in some of his spare change.
