“It is a dream come true,” Collie said. “Obviously these kids have the dream to grow up, play football and go to the Super Bowl, and I had the exact same dream as all of these kids do. To be able to live that dream my first year as a rookie was spectacular.”
With Gonzalez returning healthy, Collie's role this season is difficult to foresee. The memory of Collie's importance in getting the Colts to the Super Bowl in 2009 -- along with his chances of developing in his second year -- leave reason to believe that whatever role he plays will be an important one.
