This audiobook begins with a bloodbath: the day in 1997 when Jim Irsay fired both the director of football operations and the head coach of the Colts. From that day forward, when the Indianapolis NFL franchise was "the worst team in football", the Colts have been on the rise. These stories dramatically document that change of fortune.
Narrator Mark Delgado’s slightly sibilant performance brings famous Colts players like Peyton Manning and Andrew Luck into a listener’s living room.
This audiobook, though written by sports writers, is delightfully heavy on spoken quotes. Much of the team's story is told in the players’ own words, and Delgado embraces the first-person voices with aplomb.
Relive the greatest moments in Colts football—newly updated! With roots that go back to 1913, the Indianapolis Colts are one of the most storied franchises in the NFL. But the real legacy of achievement began in 1984 when the Colts arrived in Indianapolis after a midnight escape from Baltimore. Almost 30 years later, the Colts have forged a new identity as one of the most dynamic, power-driven teams in football today.
Now die-hard Colts fans will relive all the struggles, all the passion, and all the glory of Indianapolis football in this newly revised edition of Tales from the Indianapolis Colts Sideline. Indiana sportswriters Mike Chappell and Phil Richards take readers inside the Colts’ Union Federal Football complex, onto the Lucas Oil Stadium sidelines, and into the huddle, inside the decisions, the strategies, the players, and the personalities that have made the Colts one of the NFL’s most exciting teams.
