    A CONCURRENT RESOLUTION congratulating the Indianapolis Colts on winning the AFC Championship and making it to Super Bowl XLIV.

    Whereas, The Indianapolis Colts won the AFC South Championship six out of seven past seasons;

    Whereas, The Colts won the AFC Championship twice in the last four seasons;

    Whereas, Despite playing without two-time Pro Bowl safety bob Sanders, cornerback Marlin Jackson, reserve quarterback Jim Sorgi, kicker Adam Vinatieri, wide receiver Anthony Gonzalez, and linebacker Tyjuan Hagler, the Colts finished the season with a 16-3 record, tying the franchise record for most wins in a season;

    Whereas, Jim Caldwell, the rookie head coach, became the fourth African-American coach in the last four years to lead his team to the Super Bowl;

    Whereas, Peyton Manning earned the MVP award this season for the fourth time in his career--the most of any NFL player. Such continual success in a league as competitive as the NFL is impressive;

    Whereas, In addition to football, community involvement

has always been one of the Colts' top priorities in Indianapolis. Many of the players extend their community involvement outside of the organization through personal foundations;

    Whereas, Numerous Indiana non-profit organizations benefit from the generous donations of the Colts players and coaches throughout the season; and

    Whereas, The dedication and hard work of the Colts, both on and off the field, is worthy of recognition: Therefore,

Be it resolved by the Senate     of the General Assembly

of the State of Indiana, the House of Representatives     concurring:

    SECTION 1. The Indiana General Assembly congratulates the Indianapolis Colts on another memorable season.
    SECTION 2. The Secretary of the Senate is hereby directed to transmit a copy of this Resolution to Jim Caldwell and the Colts team members.
