Think back, if you will, to this past summer.
Imagine had someone approached you and said, “What if I told you the Indianapolis Colts would win 11 games, advance to the playoffs, but lose in a hostile environment in the opening round.”
You would take it, right? Without hesitation, right? You would have to possess a dented soda can for a brain not to after last season’s 2-14 disaster. Right?
The 2012 Colts will forever be remembered — and revered — for their ability to alter our thinking for the better. A 17-game tap on the shoulder that human well-being is and always will be more important than divisional standings or, worse, how our fantasy football teams might be faring.
