The Indianapolis Colts were one of the surprising teams in the NFL last season and their youth has led many to believe that it is only a matter of time until they become a serious force in the NFL. There could be some concern that the Colts could come back to Earth in 2013 with plenty of players facing the dreaded potential sophomore slump, but the team was firing on all cylinders on Sunday night and the confidence is there among their young players.
Second-year wide receiver T.Y. Hilton believes that the team won’t miss a beat this season and that quarterback Andrew Luck will help them continue to get better.
“Yeah, we’re all comfortable,” Hilton said, via Mike Garafolo of FOX Sports. “This is year two, so the game is really slowing down for everybody that was a rookie last year. That actually helps us out.
“But when Luck is throwing the ball the way he’s throwing it, we can’t be stopped.”
The team has plenty of young receiving options for Luck and the addition of running back Ahmad Bradshaw should just help round out the attack and make the offense even more of a threat this season. Bradshaw himself seems thrilled with where things are headed.
“The sky’s the limit. This offense, we’ve got so many playmakers,” Bradshaw said. “And with him throwing the ball and coordinating the offense, there’s no telling where we can go with this.”
No matter how you say it, the Colts are one of the most exciting teams in the NFL and seeing their quick turnaround has to give hope to any fan that is currently rooting for a team that was in the basement of their division a season ago.
You can bet Kansas City Chiefs fans are hoping for this kind of turnaround, and it is very possible.
