What are the biggest strengths for the Colts?
It’s very important to identify weaknesses on your team, but it’s almost as important to identify your strengths as well. What are those strengths for this Colts team?
Weaknesses can kill a team. If a team isn’t able to fix those or mask them, they can make that team lose games. The other team will exploit those weaknesses as much as possible. But almost as important as finding your weaknesses is finding your strengths.
If a team can identify and play to their strengths, they can help mask their weaknesses. not only that, but they can make it really hard for another team to attack those weaknesses because they can’t stop their strengths. The Colts realize that as much as every other team.
So what are the strengths for this Colts team? Right now you can say the offensive line might be their biggest strength. That isn’t something you could say about this team a few years ago. But now they are bullies up front and can control the line of scrimmage.
Because that is the case, the Colts can work on running the ball like they did in the second half of the season, then this team is going to be very hard to beat. That is because another strength for this team is the passing ability of Andrew Luck.
Luck is primed to have perhaps the best year of his career. Now that he is finally healthy he can just focus on playing football at a high level. He did that in 2018, and now he will have a full offseason to just get better as a football player.
Those two big strengths can help mask the Colts’ weaknesses of inconsistent pass rush and less than stellar wide receiving corp. Having Howard Mudd back coaching the offensive line can’t hurt either. That whole unit is going to be really good.
