The Colts lost yet again, this time to their hated rivals from New England. They put up a decent fight, but the roster flaws are too much to overcome.

They almost did it. They almost put up a fight. The Colts brought it within 7 at the start of the fourth quarter. But then they did what they always do; falter at the end of the game. This was a total team failure from top to bottom, save Andrew Luck.

The team was decimated by injuries coming into the game. Having that many backups in is something that they just couldn’t overcome. They also had more players get hurt during this game, so even more backups made their way into the game.

Luck has to be absolutely livid with the way his GM’s have acted over the years. He has no one on the roster who can reliably catch the football, save for Jack Doyle and T.Y. Hilton. And even Hilton has some drops he shouldn’t have.

The drops have plagued the Colts all year long. They didn’t get better on Thursday. They had 6 drops on the night, and it seemed like more. Luck just can’t trust anyone who is out there right now with Hilton and Doyle both out of the lineup.

Defensively, the Colts were horrible. They had a couple of decent moments with getting lucky on some turnovers and they forced one three and out. But other than that, they were just completely outmatched. They had no chance with all the defensive backs who were out.

This team has deep roster flaws, and that goes on ex GM Ryan Grigson and current GM Chris Ballard. Ballard sat on a lot of money this offseason that he could have used to help the roster. Instead, he left Luck with this crap roster around him.

Putting up a fight is only good enough to a point. But this team needs to start winning games. And this roster does not give them a chance to do that.
