This Colts team has struggled in almost every game they have played in this year. But one player has been trying his best to rally his squad for comebacks.
Andrew Luck is the franchise. He is the Colts’ best player and most important player. He is the reason the team had high hopes going into this season. They are realizing those high hopes are coming into fruition. But it isn’t Luck’s fault.
Luck has done his best to keep the team in games. He has dragged the roster through the second half of games to try and win. He has staged multiple comebacks, only to have them fall short. Quite frankly, he needs some help from his teammates.
The defense has held up their end of the bargain, for the most part. When they’ve been healthy, they have done a good job of keeping the Colts in games. They have been put in some bad situations because of inconsistency from the offense.
That inconsistency starts with the wide receivers. They have done a horrendous job of catching footballs. They have accumulated so many drops that it is shocking Luck trusts any of them. The offensive line has had issues too, but that was mainly due to injuries.
Now that the team is finally starting to get healthy, maybe the rest of the offense will help Luck. Helping Luck is a must if the team wants to win games. He can’t do it all by himself, even though he tries the best he can. He needs a playmaker to step up.
That playmaker might be Marlon Mack. Now that he is fully healthy, he can help this team in the running game. That running game might be what this team needs to give Luck some much needed help.
