3 New Year’s resolutions the Colts should be working on in 2023
The new year is a time for reflection for everyone to help guide them toward new goals. What should the Indianapolis Colts be working toward in 2023?
This weekend, billions of people are capped off 2022 and the holidays with one last hurrah before they began working on their New Year’s resolutions that they likely determined two days ago. In a 2016 study, it was found that just 9% of Americans that make a New Year’s resolution feel that they were successful. Would this translate to the NFL, and if so, what about the Indianapolis Colts that find themselves in a transition period?
There are many things that the Colts should have wished for during the Christmas holiday season, but what can they strive for to be better in a new year of hope? Indianapolis finds itself in a situation that leaves many fans and players questioning what is actually happening behind the scenes. From not having a franchise quarterback to questionable front-office decisions being made by its owner and not the general manager, Indy is not a destination for success at the moment.
What could have been a great season has really turned to disaster mode for the Colts really quickly after starting the season in hot water. After firing former head coach Frank Reich mid-way through the year, question marks started appearing all over the organization. After all, who would actually want to play in Indianapolis now?
Let’s discuss what should be some of the Colts’ New Year’s resolutions in 2023, because mine is to hopefully write about the Indianapolis Colts in a more positive light, instead of the negative articles I’ve been forced to write each week.
3. Colts must identify the best players on the roster
It seems that all season the Colts just could not see who their better players were. It was harped on all year, but Gus Bradley played Brandon Facyson over Isaiah Rodgers Sr. for much of the season. Even when Rodgers Sr. played much better in a game, Facyson still saw snaps and was put into coverage. Isaiah even locked down one of the best wide receivers in the league when they faced off with the Las Vegas Raiders earlier this season.
For a team that has a general manager that can supposedly identify talent wherever, it seems like they can’t identify who is even the best player on their own team.
More so, the Colts have let a few key pieces walk in the offseason without offering a contract and it just so happens that position is one of the weakest holes on the 53-man roster. Are you thinking about Mark Glowinski and Chris Reed, too? Because you should be.
The Colts need to evaluate their players and make tough decisions to better this team next season. There is no point in making changes now, as a win could hurt the organization in the long run.
