Identifying the biggest weakness on this Colts team
The Colts started out this season with a lot of question marks. They fixed some of those, but others still need attention. What are the biggest weaknesses left on this team?
The Colts have been playing better football recently. They have won two straight and will finally be healthy. But every team has weaknesses. And a team with a 3-5 record certainly has more than other teams. What are those remaining weaknesses?
Discipline is the biggest thing this team struggles with right now. They have the 10th most penalties in the league, and they have had their bye week already. That is a big problem. They have to get better at being more disciplined and not getting stupid penalties.
The secondary is also an issue. They got torn up against the Raiders right before the bye week. They were without Malik Hooker, but they still should have been better. Right now, that is the biggest point of weakness on the defense. They have to be better against the pass.
Coaching in close games also has to be better. The Colts have struggled closing out games this season. Their record should be much better than it is, and would be if they could hold onto halftime leads. They need to stay aggressive all throughout the game.
On offense, the biggest weakness is consistency. They have played well on that side of the ball the last two games. But can they keep it up? That is the biggest thing that needs to happen. Consistent play on offense will allow them to win a lot of games.
The Colts have done a good job cleaning up a lot of weaknesses lately. They are a much better team than they were early in the year. But can they keep that going?
