Are the Indianapolis Colts the worst winless NFL team right now?

There was a lot of speculation coming into this NFL regular season surrounding the health of superstar quarterback Peyton Manning and whether or not he would be able to start in Week 1 for the Indianapolis Colts against the division rival Houston Texans. Despite the team being optimistic about the recovery of Manning from neck surgery, the four-time NFL MVP quarterback was unable to get on the field in Week 1 and actually required more surgery on his neck.

After a second surgery, the consensus was that the Indianapolis Colts needed to replace Peyton Manning for the short term and that they did be signing recently retired veteran Kerry Collins. Unfortunately, Collins never really panned out as the Colts starter and has now been put on the IR.

As a result of the Peyton Manning’s seemingly season-ending injury, the Indianapolis Colts are winless heading into Week 8 and might not be able to win a single game all season long. The Colts aren’t the only winless team in the league right now though as the Miami Dolphins and the St. Louis Rams have also failed to record even on win this season.

The debate now is: Which winless team is the worst in the NFL? Which team has the best chance of landing projected number one pick Andrew Luck out of Stanford?

Personally, I believe the Miami Dolphins are the worst team out of the three. The Dolphins might have the best defense of the three teams, but they definitely have the worst offense with no real threat on that side of the football.

Despite the fact that the Dolphins might be the worst winless team, the St. Louis Rams seem to have the best shot of landing the number one overall pick with their tough remaining schedule. The thing that makes this interesting is that the Dolphins are the one team that needs a franchise quarterback while the Rams have former number one pick Sam Bradford and the Colts have perennial Pro Bowler Peyton Manning.

It will be interesting to see what happens if the St. Louis Rams or the Indianapolis Colts get the number one overall pick in the 2012 NFL draft as they will be faced with an extremely tough decision that will change everything. The consensus is that the Colts will take Andrew Luck with the first pick and possibly look to trade Peyton Manning, but the Rams haven’t really made it known or given any hint to what they will if they end up with the pick and have Luck land in their laps.

In my opinion, the Indianapolis Colts and the St. Louis Rams will win at least one game this season, but the Miami Dolphins look so awful at this point in the season that I wouldn’t be surprised to see a 0-16 record at season’s end.
