Bethea to go to Pro Bowl

Antoine Bethea was a second alternate for the Safety spot to go to the Pro Bowl, which typically means he has no chance at actually going, but since Bob Sanders is already being replaced by John Lynch due to an injury the recent release that Troy Polomalu will be also sitting out due to an injury has pushed Bethea up the ranks and into Hawaii. 

Antoine Bethea

This is great news for our Indy defense.  These guys are young, fast, tough, and now experienced.  The season may be over this year for the colts, but we will be the team to beat in 2008.

    Despite the injuries, despite the hype, despite the heartbreak after what could have been another SB season…I have to say this was all-in-all a successful season for the Colts. Of course it’s shadowed by what’s working out to be another Patriots SB win, but the Colts accomplished and proved a lot more this season than any other team. Not to diss the Patriots record, but they didn’t deal with the debilitating injuries the Colts did which is why they achieved so much this season…and I grudgingly admit, "They deserve it." The Colts fought through starting third-stringers and practice team members, as well as a beat up and inexperienced offense and still managed to get a 13-3 record on the year. Wow. Also, they managed to resign Bob Sanders to a lucrative, multi-year contract, get some great gametime experience to younger players to hone their skills on, get a few Pro Bowlers into a deserved leis, and also (so far) not lose too many players, not to mention get some positive feedback on Dwight Freeney’s future with the Colts (it looks very good he’ll be back healthy as ever in July). I see the 08 Colts shaping up to be an organization to be reckoned with! Especially since Dungy and the entire coaching staff is back. It’s a new day and a new season in a new retractable-roof stadium (so everyone can finally just back off about playing in a dome)! I’m already excited for next year!
