It should be a whole new ballgame for the Indianapolis Colts this exhibition season. They had Peyton Manning forever, and they were typically no-shows in the preseason as Manning barely saw any action. After Tony Dungy departed, this didn't change with Jim Caldwell who was 2-10 in his three years in the NFL preseason. The Colts defense was on the field a year ago for a NFL high 33:46. That should change somewhat this year with Andrew Luck at QB as he is certainly capable of generating more out of this offense, and he needs reps. The Rams have been in a rebuilding mode for several years now, making very little progress. They have a new coach and no defensive coordinator right now, so things could get chaotic for this team in Game 1, as they also have a new offensive coordinator in Brian Schottenheimer over from the Jets. The defense gave-up more yards and points last year than the year before, and don’t appear to have any guidance this season at least to start. Play on Indianapolis as they try to start the Luck era out with a win.
