4 things Colts must do to be in Super Bowl next year
Colts must quickly make a decision at quarterback
The decision of Indianapolis’ offseason is what direction the franchise goes at the quarterback position. There is an argument to stick with Carson Wentz but some feel it’s best to seek an upgrade.
The most important thing is that the Colts make a definitive decision and that they make it fast. Whether it’s keeping Wentz or moving one, the decision has to come early and Indy has to fully commit.
Nothing good ever comes out of straddling the fence at the quarterback position. If a team doesn’t fully commit to their current starter, it strains the relationship and impacts the collective buy-in.
If a team waits too long to make a change, the new quarterback will usually come in at a disadvantage with the playbook and the locker room and will struggle to consistently step in and help win games.
When the Colts show up for OTAs in May, they need to have the quarterback that they plan on starting in September. If the plan is to have some sort of quarterback competition, Indy needs to have both quarterbacks on the roster and prepare to make a decision sooner rather than later.
While the actual quarterback will matter, it’s also important that Indianapolis decides that quarterback, early, prepares him, and gives him all the necessary resources to help the Colts reach a Super Bowl next season.
