Colts to honor Super Bowl XLI championship team this season
The Indianapolis Colts will celebrate the 10 year anniversary of the Super Bowl XLI winning team on November 20 this season.
The Colts have announced official plans to honor the 2006 team that defeated the Chicago Bears in Super Bowl XLI. The celebration will take place on November 20 when the Colts host the Tennessee Titans. Members of that team will be on hand during halftime for the 10-year anniversary.
Oddly enough the Colts also host the Bears earlier in the season, but won’t take the time to run in the victory during that October 9 matchup.

The only members of the 2006 team still on the roster are kicker Adam Vinatieri and outside linebacker Robert Mathis. The Colts defeated the Bears 29-17 in Miami. Vinatieri hit three field goals in the pouring rain, all from under 30 yards out. Mathis wasn’t much of a factor during that particular game, finishing with just a few tackles.
It still remains to be seen who will show up for the halftime celebration, but it is highly likely that Super Bowl MVP Peyton Manning will be there as well as other big names like Jeff Saturday, Reggie Wayne, and Marvin Harrison. Other Colts who still live in the area will likely be there as well.
Hopefully Bob Sanders will show up (and not hurt himself) as his play during that post season was instrumental in the Colts making it to their first Super Bowl since moving to Indianapolis. Sanders was also a strong candidate for MVP in that game as he forced a fumble, had a big interception return, and generally wrecked havoc against the Bears offense.
We’ll have more on who will be attending and what the details of the celebration will be as that information becomes available.
