Eugene Daniel: CLASSIC COLT (1984 - 1996)
Eugene Daniel was a solid corner for the Colts for more than a decade. An original Colt, he managed to last through the first renaissance that ended with the playoff loss in Pittsburgh in 1996. In that game, his last as a Colt, He picked off Neil O’Donnell just before halftime and ran it back for a touchdown. That score gave the Colts a virtually miraculous 14-13 lead in a game the Steelers had dominated. Three Rivers Stadium was stunned in deathly silence until the Steelers put together a pair of long, crushing drives to put the game out of reach in the second half.
Daniel had a strong start to his career, picking off 14 passes in his first two seasons, before teams started to throw away from him. Like several Colts who starred in the mid-90s, he finished his career in Baltimore under ousted former Colts coach Ted Marchibroda.
