By the end of his career, Peyton Manning will have won at least one more Super Bowl ring.

This is pretty obvious. Just look at his talent. He has Addai in the backfield. Addai is a rising star and is already another steal in the draft that the Colts have got. Harrison and Wayne are two Pro Bowl caliber wide receivers. Harrison is a future Hall of Famer and Wayne is not that far behind. The offensive line is one of the best in the NFL, and they have defensive stars like Bob Sanders and Dwight Freeney. They are built to win another Super Bowl very soon.


The Colts have the ability and potential to win another one, but it's no certainty. In the loaded AFC, they would have to get by San Diego, who has arguably the most loaded roster in the league, and New England, who we all know is suddenly pretty talented themselves. They'll also have to deal with up-and-comers like Vince Young and the Titans, and a really solid Ravens team. Winning another SB isn't out of reach for Peyton, but it will be tough.


Age will affect the Patriots very soon though. Rodney Harrison, Mike Vrabel, and Tedy Bruschi all are very old. They have already lost Correy Dillon and Troy Brown has retired. The Ravens have a quarterback problem in the near future with McNair being so old. The Chargers are hard to count when Norv Turner is their head coach, and Vince Young will have trouble being great with nobody to throw it to.


The Pats are old on defense, but they did get some youth on that side of the ball in the draft this year. They have a pretty good replacement for Harrison in Brandon Merriweather, and it's hard not to envision their offense scoring 30 per game over the next few years. And the Ravens have always gotten by with mediocre QBs, and there's nothing to say they won't pick up someone young and talented soon.


The Colts are probably the most sure thing in the NFL today. They have a star QB, two star wide receivers, a rising star running back, and a great offensive line. Their safeties are very good, and the defensive ends are great. The Ravens have a good defense, but they will not be able to keep up with the rest of the league with their mediocre offense.


The Colts lost plenty of defensive talent this off-season, and replaced very little of it. And there are no sure things in the NFL. If Peyton, either of the two receivers, or Addai go down, you can kiss that season goodbye. Bones are too fragile to guarantee the Colts will stay so completely healthy like they have the last few years.
