Thank you football gods. The first win of the Andrew Luck era. We got the win, but damn, that was ugly. Luck was reduced to a game manager. One yard gained in the fourth quarter until the final drive is not going to produce wins on a regular basis.
That was way closer than it should have been. The tipped ball for a Minnesota TD made me spit nachos in my beer glass. Luck, in my estimation did a pretty good job, especially those completions to set up the winning field goal. I still have major concerns about the offensive line, as even the left side broke down a couple of times. I know Constanzo is still pretty much a rook, but damn he got smoked a couple of times today. Run blocking still leaves a lot to be desired. Olson and Linkenbach still pretty much stink, with Olson smelling worse this game. Why is an important backup like center having trouble getting the snap back in the shotgun? The defense was fairly adequate today in my estimation. And now, the reason for this post. Does anybody have any idea why Carter is inactive? Is he in the doghouse or what? It sure seemed to me that he would have been something to try in order to boost our rushing output today. I don't understand why there is a weapon inactive especially since the Colts insist they want to produce a power run game.
