What the heck happened to the Colts


Recommended Posts

1. Playing on the road is never something to take for granted.

2. The Cardinals defense is VERY good.

3. People need to stop overlooking the Cardinals...they're a good team.


with all due respect Kegg , that is 3 excuses for a loss not 34-3 beat down halfway thru the 3rd qtr

In a word it's "injuries." But there's more to it.


Colts have lost Vick Ballard, Ahmad Bradshaw, Dwayne Allen, Donald Thomas, and Reggie Wayne on the offensive side of the ball. They were missing Greg Toler and Erik Walden on defense.


The Allen and Thomas injuries were devastating to the o-line. The blocking is piss poor. Can't run block and can't pass block.


The loss of Wayne crippled a team with a very young receiving corps.


Pep Hamilton SUCKS as an NFL offensive coordinator.


And teams have kind of "figured out" the Colts defense.


They've got some real problems. They are in a terrible division, and may still limp into the playoffs, but they will be one-and-done.

There is something more to this than injuries though...


The Broncos have lost their Pro Bowl LT and C for the season, yet they can get 200+ yards out of Knoshawn Mareno at NE? And the Colts can't run the ball at all?


It's a combination of the o-line, coaching, and the RB.
