Same Old Story for the Indianapolis Colts - 2010 NFL Picks - As many plan to make their 2010 NFL picks it’s the same old story for the Indianapolis Colts in 2010 and that is a good thing. At 9-2 Vegas odds, the Colts are once again the NFL Picks favorites to win the AFC Conference with a trip to the Super Bowl in 2010. The Colts have been a model of consistency, winning 12 or more regular season NFL Picks games for the past 7 years. They have two Super Bowl appearances but only one championship to show for their efforts so they still have plenty to prove in 2010.
The leading names on this team are familiar. Quarterback Peyton Manning, wide receiver Reggie Wayne, tight end Dallas Clark, safety Bob Sanders, and defensive end Dwight Freeney. 2009 was as good as any year for the consistent Manning with 33 TDs and 4,500 passing yards. Manning is a safe pick to stack-up those numbers again, especially with his young receivers, Pierre Garcon and Austin Collie getting another year of seasoning. At running back, expect more reps for talented Donald Brown. Make no mistake, though, this is Manning’s offense and Manning’s team so you will still see plenty of balls flying around the field.
Outside linebacker Clint Session emerged as a leader on defense in 2010 but the team still relies heavily on their pass-rushing duo of Freeney and Robert Mathis who combined for 23 sacks in 2009. The secondary is led by the oft-injured Sanders and they also picked-up veteran cornerback Deshea Townsend as a free agent, adding experience to a group of corners who were exposed by Drew Brees in the 2009 Super Bowl. They must also improve their run defense, which ranked 24th in 2009.
For this NFL Predictions season you can make your NFL Picks on the Colts to get more then 12 wins in 2010 safely, and a deep run in the playoffs, with the possibility of raising the Lombardi Trophy in Dallas.
