The 2012-13 NFL season has treated the Indianapolis Colts better than most anticipated. The year started off with the firing of coach Jim Caldwell and the legendary Bill Polian, who essentially built the Colts' dynasty in the 2000s. Franchise quarterback, fan favorite and future Hall of Famer Peyton Manning was also let go in an attempt to rebuild the organization that Manning put on the map.
The 2011-12 Colts finished 2-14, leading the way for Indy to draft No. 1 in the 2012 NFL draft. Coach Chuck Pagano was brought in, as was franchise quarterback Andrew Luck. Shown the door were familiar players and Colts greats, such as Joseph Addai and Dallas Clark.
All of the hardships that followed the Colts heading into the year 2012 makes their No. 5 AFC playoff seed such an impressive seed. The team is young but ready to win now. Whatever happens in the playoffs this season will simply be a point to build off of for next year.
Since 2012 treated the Colts a lot better than anybody expected, 2013 could bring a few surprises as well. Here is the wish list heading into 2013 for all Colts fans.
