Fans and non-fans who go to NFL games dress up in their team colors. These days, though, almost everyone is adorned in team gear. And while it enhances the communal feeling, it does present one issue for those fans who like to stand out. When thousands of people choose to wear a team jersey, they tend to choose from the same handful of star players. So let's figure this out. What is the best jersey for a fan to own in the Indianapolis Colts franchise? Which jersey will stand the test of time? and why?
The best jersey to buy among the Indianapolis gear is the coveted number #18 jersey. The Number #18 jersey shows you are a colt fan, a true diehard Indianapolis Colt fan since day 1. Since the days of the great Mike Pagel who has honored the number to the recent arrival of Manning who also wore the blue and white No. #18.
So for a personal outstanding jersey either customized or bearing the names of the two pro athletes who honored the jersey and the number in their time with the franchise, I would advocate you to buy the number #18 Indianapolis Colt Jersey.
Below is a brief history of the legends.
Mike John Pagel
Mike John Pagel was born in September 13, 1960.He is a former professional American football player who was selected by the Baltimore Colts in the fourth round of the 1982 NFL Draft. A 6'2", 206 lb (93 kg) quarterback from Arizona State, Pagel played in 12 NFL seasons from 1982–1993. 1980: 184/334 for 2,025 yards with 17 TD vs. 9 INT (11 Games). 1981: 171/321 for 2,484 yards with 29 TD vs. 14 INT (11 Games). Drafted the same year as highly touted Art Schlichter, Pagel was drafted to be groomed as a backup. Generally, he out-played Schlichter. Pagel bounced in and out of the starting QB job for the Colts in his four seasons with the team, alternating with Schlichter, Matt Kofler, and Mark Herrmann.
Peyton Williams Manning.
In an emotional press conference Peyton Manning confirmed that he is leaving the Indianapolis Colts, the NFL franchise he has played for 14 years and led to Super Bowl glory in 2006.Colts owner Jim Irsay, who announced that Manning's Number 18 jersey would be retired by the team, and Manning were close to tears throughout the event.
So there you have it. The best Jersey is Number #18 #"Mikel Pagel".
