Earlier today, fellow Colts Featured Columnist Tyler Brooke posted his top 25 players in Indianapolis Colts history.
Tyler is a friend of Colts Authority, and a good writer, but I did have a few issues with his list, such as the inclusion of Cato June over other Manning-era players such as Antoine Bethea and Jospeh Addai (and I was a huge Cato June fan).
Another issue is not including players from the Baltimore era. I understand the mentality, and it's no knock on the list, but personally I'd like to see a list that includes players from both eras.
So, here's a quick couple of lists, based on Pro-Football-References' Approximate Value, a metric that aims to put a single number on each players' individual seasons. For more information on AV, check out this series of posts on PFR.
Obviously this isn't an end-all-be-all list. AV isn't a perfect metric (doesn't measure kickers or punters either), and there are other factors to be taken into consideration. Nevertheless, it's an interesting discussion.
