Don’t get me wrong. I’m very pleased as a Colts fan that they were able to come from behind last night and continue their winning ways. The secondary seemed to figure out that Case Keenum isn’t quite the quarterback that Peyton Manning was and adapted on the fly, and the Colts eventually came charging back to win when the offense clicked.
It was like the offense was playing with oven mitts on, or perhaps they had grown Tyrannasaurus hands. It’s been an epidemic since the Chargers game, or at least that’s when I noticed it. The receivers, outside of of the injured and old Reggie Wayne, aren’t catching, and the heavily invested in Trent Richardson is only averaging 3 yards a carry.
The defense is about average, which is great for the Colts lately, and the offense, despite having one of the best young quarterbacks in the league seems to be limited. Andrew Luck needs a better supporting staff. That’s an apparent need that will be exciting to see addressed in the offseason.
That and they need offensive line help up the middle. Whoo boy.
