8 of 8 people found the following review helpful By R. Mangino on July 7, 2010
Format: Paperback
This book takes a historical, chronological look at one of the NFL's premier teams since the Colts moved to Indy in 1984. It's not a tiresome game by game history, but Dunlevy focuses on the games we remember, the games that were significant. He divides time into logical chunks--groups of years that were similar because of the same coach, same star players, same success (or lack of it). There are great features along the way--Classic Colts from each era, who are players the fans loved and remember, but who are not the stars who will go down in history. Drafts are analyzed, as well as personalities, trades, the ownership and general managers....

It's logical, fan-based without wearing blinders, and has some good moments of humor. Plus the whole tie-in to the history of Indiana, its basketball identity, and how the Colts slowly overcame that. Dr. Z once wrote "The Thinking Man's Guide to Football" and this fits right next to it on the bookshelf if you insert the word "Colts" in the title before "football." It should appeal especially to Colts fans, but in a lot of ways, general football fans should find a lot of interesting stuff as well. (Mike Vanderjagt should probably not buy a copy....) Don't miss the appendix with "games we'll never forget." A lot of fun.

Whether you've been a Colts fan since 1984, or joined the bandwagon sometime after, this book does a great job not only recounting the Colts on field accomplishment but how they have established a true home and identity in Indiana and a solid fan base

This is my first amazon review I've ever written and I do because I thoroughly enjoyed the book and think its a must-read for every true Colts fan. I have only been a fan of them for 6 years and enjoyed reading about the years before that as well as the time that I've witnessed myself as a fan. The layout is simple and this is not a book that is easy on the eye with loads of pictures and other special stuff. But I loved it.
