The gosh dang Colts. I love the gosh dang Colts. Coulda woulda shoulda won at least 4 of the 5 games they lost, but things are looking up after winning their last 3. Andrew Luck is the Andrew Luck we hope for, the young defense led by Darius Leonard (R.O.Y) is playing well and gosh dang Quenton Nelson is a chicken with his head cut off. I don’t know what has gotten into this offensive line this year thus far but Luck owes them all a very nice Christmas gift. NO SACKS allowed in the last 4 games! Last year we were putting bets on how many times Luck would get sacked. This offensive play is huge and the key to more games won in my opinion. If Luck is protected then he will make the play and he has these past 4 games. And for once in a lifetime the Colts aren’t using a different starting 5 on the front line every week. And what else does a good offensive line do for you, well gosh dangit we finally have a run game. Mack and Hines are finding holes. And no we don’t need to go after a selfish Le’Veon Bell in the offseason (unless the $ is right…which it won’t be). You can try to convince me otherwise but if we do pick him up we’d be wasting a lot with Mack, Hines, and Wilkins, and the addition could take a lot away from continuing to improve the defense, but I digress.
Let’s not forget about these tight ends either. Eric Ebron leads the NFL in TE touchdowns. Jack Doyle has a wonderful name and a wonderful neckbeard like Luck. Mo Alie-Cox comes out of nowhere but looks good. So yeah, best tight end group in the NFL *shoulder shrug*.
Like I said, things are looking up. The Colts arguably have the weakest schedule in the league to finish the season and if this play continues then gosh dangit we’re in the playoffs! PLAYOFFS? You kidding me? Playoffs? We have key division games still left and some pesky average teams just like us to play. The Titans are average but it’s winnable. The Dolphins are average but Brock Osweiler is QB so you tell me. The Texans are good so that’s a toss-up. The Cowboys are bipolar and the Giants stink. We must keep this up though or else we could lose every single one of those games because every single one of those teams is trying to do exactly what we are and that is make the playoffs. PLAYOFFS?
For once I am anticipating NFL Sunday more than I have the past couple of years. This Colts team can turn some heads for this last part of the season. I should also remind you all out there that ESPN had the Colts last in their power rankings before regular season game 1.
