The third year back has already shown his potential game-breaking abilities for the Colts. With everything he’s shown, he is already the best back they’ve had in a decade.
Marlon Mack was drafted back in 2017 in the fourth round. He was brought in to be a backup to Frank Gore. But now he has been able to rise to a really good starting back. In fact, he has been good enough to be the best back that the Colts have had since Joseph Addai.
Mack has shown the ability to be dangerous with the ball in his hands at any point on the team. He has been able to run the ball in a lot of holes that aren’t there. He also is a great receiver who is able to create big plays in the passing game.
The Colts haven’t had a back of his capabilities since Joseph Addai. He was drafted back in 2007, and was a first round pick. He had the same sort of game-breaking ability that Mack has. That has been the missing ingredient in the Colts’ offense for the last few years.
Balance is the key to good offense. It’s also the key to winning games. Having mismatches that you can exploit allows teams to play better and score more points. The best way for the Colts to do that is get Mack in the open field as much as possible.
As long as Mack can stay healthy, he should continue to be a very important part of this offense for years to come.
