Sometimes you've got to be lucky. Sometimes you've got to be good. And sometimes, as Indianapolis Colts coach Tony Dungy explained earlier this week, you've got to be lucky enough to have good team doctors in order to win a Super Bowl title. "You never know, really, but do you think we win the Super Bowl without him [Dallas Clark]?" Probably not.
In the Colts' four postseason victories, he became the go-to receiver for Peyton Manning, catching 21 passes for 317 yards. The yardage was the most of any receiver in the playoffs. Without diligent teams physicians, there is a pretty good chance Clark would have watched the playoffs from the sidelines, and another team would have represented the AFC in Super Bowl XLI.
