I was thinking about doing a article on the top ten Colts of the Indianapolis era, but I decided that it would be dominated by players from the time Bill Polian joined the team in 1998.
There were a lot of great and beloved players who played for our Colts before then - even if as a team we did not have a lot of success.
In terms of my criteria, first off I am NOT a stats guy. I don't care about stats - stats are for people who don't understand football.
My major considerations are how long they were here and what kind of impact on the team *and* the fanbase they had while they were here. Bonus points for a player who brought national recognition to the team.
I do plan to do another list for the players from 1998 to present at some time in the future.
Hopefully you will enjoy it! Feel free to share who you think should be on the list - I promise that it will have no effect on me whatsoever, but I'd like to see what others think.
I'll put direct links to each position as they are posted:
#10: Barry Krauss, Inside Linebacker (1979-1988)
#9: Jeff Herrod, Inside Linebacker (1988-1996, 1998)
