The Indianapolis Colts stood high in getting the season honours irrespective of the hard ways. Here are the best two Quarter Backers (QBs) in the history of the Colts.
PEYTON MANNING (1998-2010)
Even though Unitas is the hero over the years, Manning is perhaps the greatest passer in the history of the game of football.
The Colts made the correct choice by taking him over Leaf, and although he threw 28 interceptions as a rookie, he ended up making 11 Pro Bowls, was named an All-Pro eight times, won four MVPs, and led Indianapolis to two Super Bowls, winning it all in 2006. Peyton over his 13 years with the Colts, he went 141-67, throwing for 54,828 yards and 399 touchdowns.
When names come to mind considering the Hall of Fame, he’ll be a first-ballot Hall of Famer in 2021, because, his career defined the action definition of legendary.
JOHNNY UNITAS (1946-1972)
Unitas is next after mentioning Peyton Manning. Unitas really enjoyed the hails of goodness surrounding him. Factually, he broke into the league with the Pittsburgh Steelers, but wasn’t able to raise the standard of the team.
While working in construction, Unitas was convinced to attend a friend’s tryout with the Colts, and the team signed him afterward. He played 17 seasons for Baltimore, going 117-60-4, and passing for 39,768 yards and 287 touchdowns, winning three NFL Championships, and one Super Bowl.
At one point, he had thrown a touchdown pass in 47 consecutive games, a record that stood for 52 years until 2012, when it was broken by Drew Brees.
