While saying absolutely nothing, Chris Ballard was able to almost perfectly express his own frustration over the Carson Wentz situation. How much must this guy hate having to answer that question with a restrained and controlled, hollow answer day after day?
TY. I love you. Personally, your in my 5 favorite Colts of all time. I say favorite because I know he isn’t the best, but boy has he been a pleasure for a large portion of my life watching sports religiously. But his lack of production as well as the injuries across the board tells us the Indianapolis Colts need an overhaul in the wide receiver room (apart from Pittman Jr.). We have to go get some options to throw the ball deep if we really want a qb who CAN throw the ball deep!
I’m starting to spiral on the fear of this season. Indianapolis has pigeon holed themselves by building a roster that is quite arguable to most well rounded in the league. Absolute Dawgs on both sides of the ball. Can handle their own in a dude off against any squad in the league. But the apparent talent at each position only sheds light on just how poor the situation at Quarterback is. You can’t win in this league without production under center. And while Carson had his moments, the guy seemed to be lacking a sniff of a clutch gene. With more and more coming out detailing how the Quarterback off season may not be a quarter as hectic as everyone had thought it might be I am becoming more and more resigned to having to run it back with Wentz.
And listen, there are ffffaaarrrr too many Colts fans that say “it’s been a year! give him some time.” To them I say, that is the dumbest thing I have heard in a minute! This is years of bad play. He got more than enough time to prove himself in Philly and got ran out of town. Also, newsflash if you don’t understand how the salary cap and drafting goes in the NFL, good teams can’t keep all their guys. The Colts are in their window of opportunity to get a Super Bowl. It feels like we are in a Ferrari driving for greatness, only problem is we are missing the steering wheel to steer the whole thing!
As each day passes I grow more weary on the reality of the Colts QB situation. I also grow more convinced we need to go get Jameis to eat some “W”s in Indianapolis.
I keep convincing myself that our defense will be able to negate his own Turnover rate (which to Winston’s credit is ABSOLUTELY ASTOUNDING) to a certain extent and while also giving us a QB who racks up yards. I mean his stats are pretty hilarious considering how often he’s been at or near the top in total yards in the NFL while also leading the league in turnovers at points. If we have to have a sub par option, may as well be a fun one to watch!
I WANT TO TRUST YOU GUYS, I DO!!! But come on!
