SI’s King Has the Colts Ranked 5th in the NFL

Peter King of Sports Illustrated is out with his first power ranking of the season, and despite the many changes in the offseason, he likes what he sees, as he has him ranked 5th in the league. Here’s what he has to say about them:

5. Indianapolis
As long as Peyton Manning walks, talks and leads the way he does, the biggest question about the Colts is what they do in January, not October. I’ll be interested, as we all will be, to see what kind of tweaking takes place on the defense, with a more aggressive style now that Tony Dungy and defensive coordinator Ron Meeks are gone and the more aggressive Larry Coyer has been hired to run that unit. I don’t expect an overhaul of the Tampa 2, but I do expect the secondary to be more aggressive, particularly in some blitz situations, and I expect emerging star safety Melvin Bullitt to be used more, even with Bob Sanders in the game.
