Dwight Freeney has a good vibe about this year’s version of the Colts. So much so that he made a pretty strong comment regarding what he thinks this year’s Indianapolis squad can do.

In a conference call with the Buffalo media Wednesday, Freeney believes the 2009 Colts are better than the Colts squad that won the Super Bowl in 2006.

“I would say the Super Bowl year at this point, we have a better team this year than we had three years ago when we won the Super Bowl, ” said Freeney. “I just think collectively we’re playing better ball from the special teams, offense and defense. Obviously the record indicates that, for one.

“And two, I remember around this time when we won the Super Bowl the defense had given up some real heavy runs, 300 yards rushing (to Jacksonville), in a lot of games. This year we’re winning games on defense doing different things. I definitely think this team as of right now, and that’s just saying right now, we’re better. I know what the end result was in 2006. I don’t know if that will be the same here. Obviously that’s what we’re wishing will happen.”
