I can't wait to hate you guys
 
Yes, we are division rivals and yes, things between our teams have been contentious at times in the past.

However, Colts/Pats is arguably the best rivalry of the previous decade. There were other players but the key pieces of the rivalry have always been Manning and Brady. Each fanbase passionately hated the other team's QB. Now that Manning is gone, there is no real rivalry there anymore.

Meanwhile, you guys have Jake Locker primed and ready to take over. We're about to get Andrew Luck. Despite being a year apart they will be full-time starters on rebuilding/reloading teams for (hopefully) the next decade+.

I was personally very high on Locker last year and thought you guys got a steal when you took him 8th overall. I think he is going to be a very good, maybe great QB. Locker to Britt and Cook should be excellent going forward.

As of right now, I don't really hate the Titans. Fisher is gone, Bud Adams is hated by Titans fans about as much as by others, Haynesworth, Bulluck, and Finnegan have all moved on. But assuming Luck and Locker both fulfill the potential their teams see in each other, I think Colts/Titans is going to be the next great NFL rivalry. And I personally can't wait!

The Colts have dominated the South for so long I've pretty much forgotten what it even feels like to have a real division "rival". So I hope you guys have a good draft and finally present a consistent challenge going forward. It should be fun!

Yes, it should be great fun. I just hope our coaches don't do the silly thing I think they're going to do and start Hasselbeck for another year. I'd like to see both of these QBs playing this year.
