The 2012 Colts are a team worthy of any media outlet's time, for multiple reasons. Their first-year head coach, Chuck Pagano, temporarily left his position three games into the season after being diagnosed with leukemia. The team proudly plays in his honor. Andrew Luck, the first overall pick, is a strong rookie of the year candidate—he's drawing inevitable Peyton Manning comparisons with his play. Despite their very young squad—with rookies Luck, Vick Ballard, T.Y. Hilton, Lavon Brazill, Coby Fleener and Dwayne Allen—and Pagano's illness, the Colts surprisingly, impressively, now display an 8-4 record with a high probability of nabbing a playoff spot.
