Indianapolis Colts: Star Players for 2014

Quarterback: Andrew Luck

Andrew Luck was selected with the 1st pick of the 2012 NFL draft. Luck had a very successful College Football career at Stanford University, finishing as the Heisman Trophy runner up on two occasions. Luck was expected to be the number 1 pick in the 2010 NFL draft but decide to return to Stanford for one more season. Luck has been one of the most hyped College Football Players in recent history, with many experts dubbing him the best rookie quarterback prospect since Peyton Manning. Having the biggest shoes in the league to fill, Luck had a fantastic first season, throwing for well over 4000 yards and leading the Colts to the playoffs. He followed it up with a good sophomore season, rushing for 3,822 yards and going a game further in the playoffs than in 2012. Luck was named to his second Pro Bowl in January 2014.

Offensive Star: Reggie Wayne

Reggie Wayne was selected with the 30th pick of the 2001 NFL draft. Wayne started his career slowly but developed into one of the best receivers in the NFL and, with Peyton Manning, formed one of the best quarterback/receiver combinations in NFL history. Wayne is a five time Pro Bowler and three time All-Pro selection. In 2006, he helped the Colts to the Super Bowl title and in 2007 was the leading receiver in the NFL. Wayne continued to improve with age and had his best season ever, with 111 receptions and 1355 receiving yards. Wayne tore his ACL in week seven of the 2013 season, and as a result missed the remainer of the season. The injury ended his consecutive games played streak at 189, the third-longest for a wide receiver in NFL history. If Wayne can come back strong in 2014 it will be helpful for the Colts.

Defensive Star: Robert Mathis

Robert Mathis was selected by the Colts in the fifth round of the 2003 draft and had an immediate impact, playing all 16 regular season games, recording 20 tackles, 3.5 sacks and three forced fumbles. In week 5 of the 2013 season against the Seattle Seahawks, Mathis recorded the 100th sack of his career, becoming the 30th player in league history to do so. He was named the AFC Defensive Player of the Month for October, the third time he has won the award. Mathis would lead the NFL in sacks with 19.5, a half sack more than Robert Quinn of the St. Louis Rams. He was awarded the inaugural Deacon Jones award for leading the NFL in sacks, and also won his second AFC Defensive Player of the Month award of the 2013 season for his performance in December. With statistics rising each year, Mathis now plays strong-side outside linebacker under Chuck Pagano.

Head Coach: Chuck Pagano

Chuck Pagano began his NFL coaching career as secondary coach for the Cleveland Browns in 2001. He moved to the Oakland Raiders in 2005 and then the Baltimore Ravens in 2008. He was promoted to Ravens defensive coordinator in 2011 and improved the Ravens pass defense significantly. In 2012 Pagano was named head coach of the Indianapolis Colts. A cancer scare kept him out of action for the majority of the 2012 season, returning just in time to guide the team to the playoffs. He led his side to another playoff appearance in 2013 as well as winning the Divisional Championship for the first time since 2010.
