Past: I'd have to say Jim Harbaugh. During our leaner years, us Colts fans didn't have a heck of a lot to look forward to every year. When Harbaugh arrived on the scene in 1994, I don't think many of us batted an eyelash. What we didn't know was just how amazing a run we would have with him. The 1995 season alone was so special - squeaking into the playoffs and then having an incredible run through the playoffs only to fall a Hail Mary TD pass away from the Super Bowl. Harbaugh was so damn exciting to watch back then. There's no question, he's one of my all-time favorites.

Present: It's so hard to not say Peyton Manning after all he's done for us. The man is absolute class and one of the greatest QBs of my generation and likely anyone else's for that matter.

Hey guys - it's DDD!

My all time is Andre Tippett. I was still living in NH then and he was an absolute beast to watch play.

Current player, like many Colts fans was Peyton. However, I must move on and I will say Robert Mathis. Very much a homer pick, but I don't think there is a more underrated DE in all of football. I expect him to get a strip/sack every game, and he usually delivers.

Well, now that I've graduated from grad school I'll have more time to spend here at the Cafe. And, I too, certainly approve of that! ;-D
