Default Playoffs!!!!! (insert mora rant here)

Indianapolis Colts: How short is road to the playoffs in 2018?

Got to love an optimist...

The Indianapolis Colts obviously need Andrew Luck healthy to be competitive in 2018, so how short is their road to the playoffs? The AFC South is damn competitive, but the Colts fortunes point straight up.
No matter how poor or successful a teamís season was, there are always major offseason questions on the front burner. The NFL turns over too much for even the best teams to advance a calendar year unscathed. Letís continue the team-by-team overview with the Indianapolis Colts.

Thumbs down

The usual off-season speculation based on best-case scenarios. The days of walking through the division just because you have a good quarterback are long gone.

The AFC South will certainly be more competitive, but it should require no more than a 10 and 6 record to win the division. I think the teams will knock each other around with no team getting such an advantage that they can manage a 13 win season.

No team ever walked through a division because of a good QB. That takes an elite QB. If Luck can return to that level of play, this could certainly be a playoff team and maybe even a division winner. This team will need a defense to be anything more than that, though.

The picture of Luck with his bike at the Indy 500 is very encouraging. The guy looks ripped. Only time will tell but if heís back the Colts have as good a chance as anyone in this division

It's the busted up stuff INSIDE that may be the problem. But it's good to see him in good shape.

I don't see it this year, even if Luck is the best Luck ever.

To much turnover, much needed turn over granted, but the AFC South has gotten pretty decent again. This bunch may jell into a good team but not overnight
