Colts must move on from these individuals after this embarrassing season ends
By Brad Marr
These are the players, coaches, and executives that the Indianapolis Colts must move on from at the end of this atrocious season.
It’s no secret the Indianapolis Colts had a disappointing football season. At the hands of their own, the Colts diminished from preseason AFC South favorites, to contending for a top-five pick in the upcoming NFL draft. Currently, their record of 4-10-1 directly correlates to the amount of dysfunction in the locker room, the coaching staff, and the front office.
A series of one implosion after another has finally led to full-blown corrosion in the organization so badly it’s as if the drinking fountains are spewing toxins of anti-football success suppressants. The injury bug bit hard in 2022, coaches were fired, and players were traded away or indefinitely benched. Morale is low and energy has faded.
Who is to blame for the Colts in 2022?
Lots of fingers pointing in different directions, with no direct pinpoint of who or what to blame as the source for all these setbacks in the organization. As great and invested an owner as Jim Irsay is for more than just the Colts, there is a strenuous list of questionable decisions that have set back the organization. Most are fueled by personal indecisiveness with a separate agenda to follow.
Chris Ballard’s lack of aggressiveness in free agency could be at fault as well. Additionally, contract negotiations with players that seem to have peaked and are tail-spinning in the opposite direction could also be to blame.
Matt Ryan has been disgracefully bad. Although he’s not fully at fault for the full demise in his first year in Indianapolis, we’ve most likely seen the end of what some people unfathomably believe is a Hall-of-Fame quarterback.
There’s a good chance all of these names are on the list of personnel to move on from for the Colts. Let’s take a look.
