The Indianapolis Colts have had a rough go at it lately. The Colts offense, and special teams has been anemic to say the least, but their defense has been doing enough to do their part towards a win. However, the Colts couldn’t pull out a win in Pittsburgh, and now they’ve taken a loss to the Miami Dolphins at home.
Brian Hoyer’s QBR? Yes, a righteous 4.4, with a 46% completion rate and 3 interceptions. This was the most disgusting outing for a Colts quarterback in most fan’s memory bank, and I have no clue how you can put that back out onto the field and expect the rest of the Colts’ offense to have any confidence in their gameplan.
Frank Reich has had better days as well. Knowing that Hoyer is who he is, Reich hasn’t done many favors by throwing out a totally predictable gameplan, and failing to get Hoyer up to speed is concerning, but not all of his fault either. Hoyer is terrible, that’s just the sad truth of the matter, and a coach can only do so much when the decision-making and execution isn’t there.
Today talks of Adam Vinatieri and how he should be let go will persist, just as they have for weeks now. And nobody should be considered less of a fan for thinking so. With a ninth straight one-score game to start the season, this team is proving their neither capable, or interested in putting a complete game together in order to legitimately battle for the AFC South title.
The Colts have a lot of soul searching to do, and even further searching into how those who aren’t pulling their own weight should not be playing between the lines every Sunday. From the coaching staff, down to the 53rd man on the roster, this team has a ton of work ahead of them just to be an above average team going forward.
