As camp starts today, we do our last preview for camp. We look at the punt coverage for the team.
Training camp is finally here. The Colts reported today and now work can begin to happen before the start of the season. But we look at one last part of the team before work really starts. The punting coverage is the last thing we need to look at.
Last season, it wasn’t too bad. Because of how good Rigoberto Sanchez was, the coverage didn’t have too bad of a time. They were able to corral players from making big gains on punts. This is turn helps the defense from having their backs against the wall.
The same thing should happen this season. The Colts should be able to keep the same level of coverage this season based on their personnel and who they have punting. Sanchez does a good job of angling his punts into corners to keep players from having space.
Punt coverage is another place where borderline players can make name for themselves. It’s another way for them to get a job. This won’t be as interesting to look at as the kickoff team during camp though. The punt gunners will still be the fastest guys on the team.
Now that training camp is officially here, expect to get some updates daily on what is taking place over at camp. I will be making a trip to Grand Park early in August as well to get a firsthand look at how the team looks.
