"I think going into every year when you have an outstanding team that obviously you want to get to the Super Bowl and you want to win," was the comment Colts GM Jim Irsay made yesterday at his luncheon with Colts sponsors, but he made sure to emphasize that the Colts take it one day at a time. The Colts know the long-term goal, but learned (especially with last year's success) that you have to stay focused on the short-term in order to get there. The Colts not only take the season one game at a time, but one practice at a time and it is this discipline that has helped make them Super Bowl champions. How do they keep this focus and how has it already worked for them thus far this season? Get these answers and more in this feature!
