This team right now is firmly average based on their record. They are 2-2. Some weeks they have looked like a force to be reckoned with and a favorite to win the AFC South. Other weeks, like this week, they look like a garbage team that isn’t good enough to compete.
They are wildly inconsistent. The defense has gotten their doors blown off in every game this season except one. The offense has actually been pretty good, but not good enough to overcome the trash defense and the special teams miscues.
Next week will be a true measuring stick. They go into Arrowhead Stadium to face the undefeated Chiefs in a rematch of last year’s playoff game. They are one of the best teams in the league. Which Colts team will show up to that one?
Injuries have also been a big story. They haven’t been healthy enough to show what they are capable of. They should be in better position to handle that this year with the depth that they’ve built, but that clearly hasn’t been the case. The backups haven’t been good enough.
Four games into the 2019 season and we still don’t know what to make of this Colts team. They could be good enough to win the division and make the playoffs. They also could lose 10 games and have a top ten pick in the draft. We just don’t know yet.
