About The Indianapolis Colts
The Indianapolis Colts began play in 1953 as the Baltimore Colts who were seen as the second coming of the previous Baltimore Colts, who were before known as the Miami Seahawks before they moved to Baltimore in 1947 as a member of the All-American Football Conference (AAFC). They then joined the older league NFL in 1950 but folded after the first season with a one win and eleven loss records. The 1953 Colts while in Baltimore won four Division Championships and one Super Bowl.
March 28, 1984 is a day that Baltimore will never forget. In a secret move in the early morning hours, moving vans rolled into the Baltimore training complex, packed all the gear up, and moved the team to Indianapolis. This sparked many moral and legal conflicts.
Some of the old-time team players were so upset by what the franchise had done to the city that they had completely disassociated themselves with the Indianapolis Colts. For example, Johnny Unitas told the Pro Football Hall of Fame to remove his display unless it would be listed as being owned by the Baltimore Colts.
Since the 1984 move, the colts have had average success at best, appearing in seven playoff games with their best advance coming in ’95 when they went to the AFC Championship game against the Pittsburgh Steelers, but lost 26 to 16. The following year they lost the Wild-Card game, again to the Steelers
They wouldn’t see another winning season until 1999 with a thirteen win and three loss seasons; they would go on to the postseason but be defeated by the Cleveland Browns.
In 2003, the Colts would find themselves in first place in the AFC South and defeating the Broncos in the Wild Card Playoff 41 to 10, next they would play the Chiefs for the Divisional title which they won 38 to 31.
Next would be the New England Patriots in the Conference Champion Ship. Peyton Manning threw four interceptions in that game. The Colts lost 24 to 14. The game was also criticized for the lack of officiating, only seven penalties were called, six of them were pre-snap fouls.
The Following season they were hopeful to repeat the 2003 season by returning to the postseason games. With a slow start by loosing to the defending Champions, they went on to an ending season of twelve wins and four losses.
In the final regular season game Peyton was only a few touch down passes from breaking Dan Marino’s record of 48 touchdown passes in regular season. Trailing 31 to 16 Dominic Rhodes returned a kickoff for an 88 yard touchdown. With just a little under five minutes left in the game Peyton Manning waved the punting team off the field and even though it was 4th and four on the Colts 25 yard line, Peyton’s gamble paid off with a first down pass completed by Reggie Wayne. Two more completed passes to tight end Dallas Clark and an 18 yard throw to Marvin Harrison set up Touchdown pass number 49 to wide receiver Brandon Stokley. They would eventually win that game but loose the playoff to the New England Patriots.
They finished the 2005 season with a fourteen win two loss seasons, and went to the Divisional Playoff against the Steelers which ended in a loss.
