On this Thanksgiving, it’s time for us to reflect on what we are thankful for in our lives. It’s time for the Colts to reflect on what they are thankful for.
The Colts are 5-5 on this Thanksgiving Day. But they have been through a lot this season to get to that point. There are several things that the team should be thankful for this season that has helped them succeed this year and beyond.
The number one thing they should be thankful for is a healthy Andrew Luck. With him back on the field, the offense has been lethal. He has played some of the best football of his career. Because of that stellar play, the Colts are right back in the thick of the playoff race.
Eric Ebron is also someone the Colts should be thankful for. The tight end came over from Detroit in free agency and has been a big part of the offense. He leads all tight ends in receiving touchdowns and has turned his career around.
The Colts should also be thankful for Josh McDaniels being stupid. He spurned the Colts at the 11th hour, deciding to turn down the head coaching job. That allowed the Colts to hire Frank Reich instead. Reich has been a great hire and has this team going in the right direction.
Colts fans should also be thankful for a weak schedule the rest of the way. They play some bad teams at the end of the season. Because of that, they have a chance to win those games and make the playoffs because the quality of opponent isn’t high.
This year has turned into a good first year of Frank Reich and this young Colts team. Everyone in the organization should be thankful for that.
