The Colts are in the playoffs. Holy cow! Winning 9 of 10 games to end the season after a 1-5 start, the Colts have snuck into the playoffs. For the first time since 2016, the Colts will be playing football in January.
Many people had questions about the Colts before the season. People questioned the Frank Reich hiring after the Josh McDaniels Fiasco. People questioned Chris Ballard’s offseason decisions. They questioned whether Andrew Luck would ever be good again. I myself predicted the Colts to finish 7-9 before the season, which was a wildly optimistic take at the time. Because it is almost 2019, nothing on the internet is forgotten. Here is a look at some of the best takes about the Colts throughout the season.
Many people weren’t too happy with Chris Ballard throughout the season, and called for his firing. There is, though, a reason he is an Executive of the Year candidate and we are not.
10-6 is the only stat I care about.
Andrew Luck probably doesn’t start on the Chiefs. Darius Leonard doesn’t start on the Panthers. T.Y. Hilton doesn’t start on the Steelers. This guy has a point.
But Andrew Norwell and Allen Robinson, right?
Frank Reich didn’t trade away two Pro-Bowlers, fortunately.
Most of the media predicted the Colts to be the cellar dwellers of the NFL, as seen below.
Hey, they beat the Bengals!
Just two wins against Tennessee, right.
Is this backwards power ranking day?
I mean Alabama is going to win the national title, so nothing wrong here.
I don’t even know where to begin here.
People weren’t too happy with Chris Ballard’s draft, which netted what should have been two Pro-Bowlers and many key pieces for the future.
Well because that guard is going to move to tackle and become an important keystone piece, duh!
This is the worst one. For sure.
So many good players we could have had, Uchenna Nwosu or Brian O’Neill to name a few.
I will bite you.
Not Andy’s finest moment.
One guy got it right!
It would be rude to not include some of my own former pessimism here.

I would be remiss if I omitted our good friend Jacob Infante’s Andrew Luck tweets. He really is a smart guy, by the way.
Let me preface this by saying @jacobinfante24 is a close friend of ours. He is a great football mind but was also our resident Andrew Luck hater. Since it’s #TwitterReceipts season, let’s go through some of his best takes.— FPC Colts (@FPC_Colts) November 19, 2018
And last but certainly not least, let’s not forget Maxx Hotton’s fantastic video of some of the best takes about Andrew Luck.
Let’s put all of these old takes behind us. Onto the playoffs!
