Good morning.

> Stop me if you've heard this somewhere: There's some discussion about who is better, Andrew Luck or Russell Wilson. I took a look at the two quarterbacks for today's paper.

> takes a look at Richard Sherman, NFC Defensive Player of the Month.

> Greg Bedard at MMQB wrote about the best pass rushes and rushers of the season. Best interior past rusher so far? J.J. Watt. Highest Week 4 pressure rate? That also came from Houston, and by a wide margin. Best edge rusher so far this season? That's actually a Seahawk.

In other words, (Peyton) Manning had to be great, week after week, for the Colts to have a chance to win football games. To his ultimate credit, he usually was, and the Colts won scores of games, reached the Super Bowl twice, winning one of them.

That has changed under the new Ryan Grigson-Chuck Pagano regime. In two short years, the Colts have undergone a complete personality transplant, and it’s the kind of transformation that figures to hold them in good stead for years to come.

“This is our most balanced team by far,” said Antoine Bethea, who’s been a Colt for eight years. “By far. Previous years it was Peyton and the offense. This year, the offense is doing well, special teams is playing great and the defense is doing good.”

However, the source added that surgery might be needed, which could end Bradshaw’s season.
