Colts Training Camp Schedule
Wednesday, August 17th
Matt Grecco is doing a detailed write-up of yesterday's practice. One item from the write-up I'd like to focus on with this training camp update is the new offensive line.
Yesterday, at both the morning and evening practices, the Colts starting and second string o-line was:
LT- Anthony Castonzo, Michael Toudouze
LG- Joe Reitz, Jacques McClendon
OC- Jeff Saturday, Mike Pollak
RG- Ryan Diem, Kyle DeVan
RT- Jeff Linkenbach, Ben Ijalana
Baring injuries and other unforeseeable things, this group is likely the core o-line for the 2011 Indianapolis Colts. This new starting line includes three new starters and a regular starter (Diem) playing a new position (guard).
In case you care, I personally like this new line, and I'm very excited to see how it looks against the Redskins. Changing the line does not guarantee success, but the changes, at the very least, acknowledge the obvious: The old line simply wasn't very good.
Also, anything that gets Mike Pollak on the bench is something I endorse 100%.
