With roots that go back to 1953, the Indianapolis Colts are one of the most storied franchises in the NFL. But the modern legacy of achievement began in 1984 when the Colts arrived in Indianapolis after a midnight escape from Baltimore. More than thirty years later, the Colts have forged an identity as one of the most dynamic, power-driven teams in football today.
Now diehard Colts fans can relive all the struggles, all the passion, and all the glory of Indianapolis football in this newly revised edition of Tales from the Indianapolis Colts Sideline. Indiana sportswriters Mike Chappell and Phil Richards take readers inside the Colts’ Indiana Farm Bureau Football Center; onto the Lucas Oil Stadium sidelines; into the huddle; and inside the decisions, the strategies, the players, and the personalities that have made the Colts one of the NFL’s most exciting teams. They pay homage to Peyton Manning, Reggie Wayne, Dwight Freeney, and all the players who propelled the team to its Super Bowl victory following the 2006 season. And they look ahead as Andrew Luck and company attempt to bring home another title.
