Colts’ Frank Reich Wants to Win Now
The new head coach of the Colts is not interested in next season being a rebuilding year. He wants to win now, and isn’t afraid to say it.
Frank Reich is ready to win now. He is not ready to concede the Colts are in a rebuild. With Andrew Luck coming back healthy, Reich believes that the team can compete. He thinks that the team can compete for a division title.
If Reich is going to be correct, he is going to need to instill that same confidence he shows to the media into his team. Reich seems like he is a great motivator and should be able to get the best out of his team.
It’s one thing to have confidence in your team, but its another thing to have the ability to compete. The Colts seem to be a ways away from competing with the rest of the NFL. They seem like they have work to do in their own division.
The Colts are going to have issues overthrowing the Jaguars as kings of the AFC South. They have only improved in the offseason, and they are able to play the best defense in the league. The Titans are also still better than the Colts, but they could regress next year.
It would be more realistic for Reich to want to compete for the division title within the next three years. He needs time to build the roster up to his standards. Once the team is able to get some depth in the trenches and in the wide receiver position, the Colts will be dangerous.
