Now that they’re in, the Indianapolis Colts are serious about the playoffs.
Not that they weren’t before. But after defying all expectations and overcoming seemingly insurmountable obstacles to get here, they are determined to do more of the same in the postseason.
They have no plans for an early exit. In fact, they have no exit strategy at all.
“It’s definitely not over by any means. We’re not happy just to be in,” rookie quarterback Andrew Luck said, echoing the prevailing locker room sentiment. “There’s an ongoing (mindset), just like every team in the playoffs, and we’re shooting for that goal. We’ll take it one week at a time.
“It is great to be in the playoffs for those veterans, but that’s not the end of the journey by any means.”
