Colts Cast: Deciphering Chris Ballard’s end of season press conference with Chris Blystone

As he does at the end of each season, Chris Ballard sat behind a microphone for over an hour to give his thoughts on the Indianapolis Colts 2019 season in review.

Ballard, through his own recollections and through the team’s local beat writers, was upfront and realistic in his end of the year discussion about the team and how the season turned into a 7-9 result after beginning at 5-2.

Ballard spoke, and was honest about Jacoby Brissett, his play, his lack of consistency, and the offense’s poor performances throughout the year. He touched on providing the offense, and coaching staff with more weapons, how impressed he was with the offensive line’s play, and much more.

Ballard also touched on who he felt had very big off-seasons coming up, who he thought was on this roster and was the best at his position in the league, and how he evaluated each position group.

Ballard was also quite reflective and honest about what he saw as his failures this year. Taking specific leadership for granted, and putting too much stock in youth at positions that needed a veteran presence was one that he spoke about that really got to him this year.

Ballard revealed a lot of his true feelings about his performance along with the team, and Matt Danely and Chris Blystone go through some bullet points of the lengthy press conference and what they felt was warranted, what they agreed with and disagreed with from Ballard.
