The Colts may only have a three game winning streak going right now. But it’s very important for the young players on this team.
Winning is the ultimate goal for every football team out there. Winning is everything the team is focused on. And it’s important for every franchise to experience that, and that is especially true with a team full of young players as the Colts have.
Those young players need to experience winning so they know what it feels like at the next level. They need to know that they have what it takes to get it done. This three game winning streak that the Colts are on sends that message.
The quality of the opponents may not be super high, but winning games in the NFL is hard no matter who you play. The Colts had issues closing games earlier in the season. So for them to close three in a row is a sign that this young team is starting to grow up.
With the roll that they are on, they should try to keep that momentum going. Even if they don’t end up making the playoffs this year, this late season push is great experience for all of the young players on this roster. That will pay dividends in later years when they start the season better.
The development of these young players is the most important thing for this franchise. They are the future and can put the Colts back where they want to be in future seasons. So far, they seem to be developing pretty well. That cred goes to GM Chris Ballard and coach Frank Reich.
Reich’s squad still has a chance to complete some goals they set in the preseason. They’ll have to keep this winning streak going if they want to do that.
