The Stack has a special post on this Saturday as we continue to preview NFL teams heading into training camp. With the Olympics now officiallly underway after last night’s opening ceremony, we also have some thoughts on that too so let’s get right to it and see what made “the stack” for today, Saturday, July 28:
Indianapolis Colts begin new era at the start of training camp
It’s the dawn of a new era, a new horizon of Indianapolis Colts football. Last year, with Peyton Manning out after neck surgery, the Colts went through a disasterous 2-14 season which brought about the number one pick and with it they took Andrew Luck. He is the new face of Colts football. How will he do this year? How will the Colts fare?
Camp battle to watch: On a bad team, you’re going to have lots of position battles for starting spots so from wide receiver to cornerback to linebacker even, the Colts will have plenty of spots and battles.
Storyline #1: Luck era begins. How will Andrew Luck fit into the Peyton’s shoes? Obviously, this is a new era and Colts fans should not expect Luck to be like Manning or have immediate success. But considering that Luck was the highest rated player coming out of college since I don’t know Peyton Manning, there is some pressure on him to make the Colts a winner again and fast.
