Once again we highlight a potential quarterback-centric leap.

Indianapolis Colts franchise signal-caller Andrew Luck hasn't played since 2016 due to a balky shoulder, and he wasn't himself that year or the previous season as a result. That's a shame, because there's evidence that a healthy Luck could be enough to get this team close to the Super Bowl. 

But his potential return to health isn't the only reason the Colts could make a leap following a trying 4-12 season. Indy holds the draft's No. 3 overall pick, and with free agency looming only the Browns and 49ers have more money to spend than the Colts, per Spotrac

I hope it happens. With a healthy Luck and some good picks at the draft it can. Let's see what happens.

Further, from same article. Keep in mind this is not some local Indianapolis writer with rosy-glasses homer-hope, but a national NFL writer:

"That's a heck of a position to be in when you've already got a three-time Pro Bowler under center and an exciting new head coach in Josh McDaniels.

The Colts still have a lot of work to do on defense, but Luck has the support of some talented young players on both sides of the ball. Malik Hooker and Rashaan Melvin have given hope to the D, and Luck will return to an offense that at least provides him with an elite top receiver in T.Y. Hilton and a stalwart left tackle in Anthony Castonzo. 

Don't be surprised if they're a lot more competitive in 2018. "

He is not talked about a lot, especially because Andrew is the man we are thinking of, but what a huge boost to this team if Malik Hooker not only comes back strong, but shows that the time he has taken off has been used to get better at the game mentally. There are few things more exciting than watching a defensive player shutting people down with confidence.
