With the news of Peyton Manning's departure from the Indianapolis Colts, there will be a start of a new era in the AFC South. With the vacancy at the quarterback position, the Colts are very likely to draft Stanford QB Andrew Luck with the first overall pick in the 2012 NFL Draft. That would be the third time that an AFC South team made drastic changes at QB in the span of a year. Around this time last year, the projected starting QBs in the AFC South were Matt Schaub, David Garrard, Vince Young, and of course, Peyton Manning. It's crazy to think how those three starting quarterbacks could be looking for work elsewhere so quickly. Then again, it just shows that there is no such thing as loyalty in the NFL. However, there are bright futures for Blaine Gabbert, Jake Locker, and Andrew Luck and it will be fun to watch them develop.
