The Indianapolis Colts have now met another large preseason roadblock with the recent news of Andrew Luck announcing his retirement.
However, the Colts have a lot going for them as the roster itself is in much better shape than it has been in recent years. Jacoby Brissett has now been thrust into the starter role as he’s desired since getting the bulk of the starts in 2017.
The Colts hosted the Chicago Bears on Saturday night and there was a lot to be excited about on both sides of the ball. The Colts lost 27-17, but that’s not really what we’re talking about here. With Chad Kelly getting more snaps, and making them count quite a bit now that the backup QB role is there for the taking, we’ll discuss his performance, how he has appeared to acquired some instant chemistry with Deon Cain, and how the perspective on him has vastly altered since his initial signing.
We also discuss the team’s defensive improvements and which positions have benefited the most as the team prepares for the 2019 season.
The team’s secondary is one to keep an eye on, and Matt discusses who he likes that may not be getting the attention they deserve. Additionally, the linebacker corps are in Year 2 of flipping from being a weakness to becoming a strength. Now, with additions such as Bobby Okereke and E.J. Speed, the group is looking to make even more noise this season.
How about the defensive line? We discuss this unit too, which promises to be one of the most important groups on the roster this season.
