So Won't the Real Joseph Addai Please Stand Up...

        Just driving back from a great late night (early morning?) meal from Denny's, I hear Paul McCartney's "Live and Let Die" which, as a Colts fan obviously brought thoughts of our own #29, RB Joseph Addai to mind.

                As the offseason comes to an end, I wonder what Addai has been up to.  As fans we have all posted our own thoughts on him, how good/bad he is, wheather the blame of the horrible rushing attack of '08 is to be put on Addai or the O-line, whatever....that is not the point of this post.  I simply wish to know what he has been up to.  I have not seen a single article about him this entire summer, not once.  Does he have any response to the crowd that thinks he's to blame for the rushing game of the Colts, any reassurance to those that support him as a starter in the NFL? 

 

       Personally, I love Addai and think the job he has done protecting #18's butt the past 3 seasons makes him worthy of his 1st round selection, let alone the rushing/receiving threat he had been the 1st two seasons of his career. Put Addai in the open field, and he will make the first guy miss, seriously he's been incredible with some space to work with. But where is his heart, his drive to show that he is a Colt RB that wants to win a championship and lead the offense to a Superbowl...I know it's not his job to tell the public about his whereabouts and activities during the off season, but i've read so much about other players in the Colt's organization working hard in the weight room, speaking with jubilance of the '09 season that is contagious to us fans, that it makes me wonder what sort of mind frame Addai is in...

      How much better would you feel if you read words from Addai taking the weight of the bad rushing game, making himself the scapegoat, and stating that he's working as hard as ever this offseason. How assuring would it be to see he is working hard to get better.  These are the kind of things I expect to read about from Colt's players after a terrible season, especially one of such high caliber and talent.

 

        What do you think? Is Addai just a 1a/1b back. Will he return to his awesome '06 & 1/2 of '07 ways?  Have I wasted my time and more importantly, YOURS with this post?
