Based on how the Colts have run their offseason, it seems like they are comfortable with their current roster on offense. Should they?
The Colts are one of the top teams in the league. A big reason of that is because of how explosive their offense can be with Andrew Luck. As long as he is back there, they have a chance to win every game. Maybe that’s why they seem so comfortable with their offense.
The Colts haven’t added very many offensive players in this offseason. Their biggest acquisitions on that side of the ball were receivers Devin Funchess and Parris Campbell, who they acquired via the draft. Those weapons should only improve this offense.
Chris Ballard clearly thinks the offense is good enough for them to win games the way it is currently constructed. That’s why he made it a priority to take mostly defensive players in the draft. The offense looks like it is potent enough the way it is.
Expect the offense to look pretty similar to what it did last season. There will be a lot of short routes which are designed to allow Luck to get the ball out of his hand quickly. Adding receivers like Campbell and Funchess help with that.
Frank Reich has also said he wants to commit more to the running game. Having more balance makes any team more dangerous on offense. Expect Marlon Mack to have more on impact this season because of that. They also just signed Spencer Ware to help back him up.
The defense is where the team will look different. But the offense will be as good as ever.
