Several Colts turning in season worthy of awards




INDIANAPOLIS

Halfway through the NFL’s regular season is not the time to hand out awards.

I will say this. If the Indianapolis  Colts play their  final eight games at or above the level in which they performed during the first eight, the bed of a pickup truck will be needed to pick up and transport all the shiny hardware.

Consider:

Most Valuable Player

Reggie Wayne. Remove Aaron Rodgers from the Green Bay Packers, Tom Brady from the Patriots, Frank Gore from the 49ers and Matt Ryan from the Falcons, and those are still talented teams. No longer are they necessarily Super Bowl contenders, but all four remain a quality product.

Take the 12th-year wide receiver away from the Colts, particularly early on when rookies Andrew Luck, Vick Ballard, T.Y. Hilton, Coby Fleener and Dwayne Allen were getting their feet wet, and Indianapolis isn’t close to emerging as the league’s surprise club.
