The Colts had issues early in the season in multiple different areas. But the coaching staff has done a good job of making adjustments to fix those issues.
Frank Reich deserves some credit. He finally started making adjustments the last couple of weeks. Even though they only won one of those games, you can see the team is improving. And that is what you want to see no matter what team you’re coaching.
One of the biggest adjustments they have made is running the ball more. That added balance has helped the team move the ball down the field more effectively. It clearly helps when you have Marlon Mack in the backfield. He has made a big difference in that area of the offense.
Some people might think this is an overreaction to one game against a quarterback who was signed off the street 3 weeks ago. Yes, the Bills are a bad team. Yes they signed Derek Anderson not too long ago. But that was a top ten defense that the Colts destroyed.
That destruction is evidence of this team’s improvement. It shows that the team is buying into what Frank Reich is trying to establish. Having that improvement also reinforces to the players that what they are doing is working. That goes a long way into buying into a scheme.
The Colts shouldn’t have any issues continuing to increase that improvement when they play tomorrow in Oakland. But one of the signs of improvement is beating a bad football team. That is the sign that Colts fans want to see the most.
