The Indianapolis Colts are headed into Week 1 and with the 53-man roster cutdowns came a ton of Colts news these past few days.
First and foremost, the roster cutdown. While there weren’t any real surprises, there were still a couple moves that came as a result of some shuffling. The Colts needed to add a quarterback as Chad Kelly was set to hit his suspension for the first two weeks of the regular season, and it was again a veteran guy brought in who has some familiarity with Brissett himself.
Along with the initial roster construction for the season, each position has some unique players, solid rotational benefits and some possible game-changers that we’ll discuss on today’s show. We’ll also take a quick look at the Colts first unofficial depth chart for the season.
Additionally, Brissett who is now standing atop the Colts depth chart at QB, was given a new deal and with that come great expectations. Was his payday an issue? Well, it was to some, but we’ll discuss why it shouldn’t be.
Speaking of Brissett, which we did quite a bit of on today’s Colts Cast, we’ll go through how he can improve on his 2017 season, what he’s already shown in that respect, and how this system can benefit his play as well as give him some of the natural transition to becoming a more in-depth quarterback in all phases. There is plenty for him to improve on from that 2017 season, but these two situations are not the same, and Frank Reich will do everything he can to get Brissett ready.
How will his approach change in terms of his reads, his aggression, his ability to read the defenses pre-snap, and how can he manipulate the defenses as the play progresses? All that and much more on today’s Colts Cast with Matt Danely.
