Finding the Colts a Win

In this series, I will find wins for the 0-4 teams. Other teams: Vikings.

28th in points scored. 28th in points allowed. The Colts definitely miss Peyton Manning.

What they should do: For the immediate, more “no huddle” would be great. Painter can do it and Dallas Clark, Pierre Garçon, Austin Collie, Reggie Wayne and Jacob Tamme create match-up problems.

They should target O-line, DT, and CB during the next off-season. With so many holes to figure out, they are the team that most needs that #1 spot to trade with someone and collect picks. Painter is a solid back-up and Manning will play at least a few more years. They should pass on Andrew Luck.

Prediction: I’m high on Blaine Gabbert but I think the Colts shall split the series with them by beating them at Lucas Oil Stadium 11/13, beat the Chiefs at home this week, win in Cincinnati 10/16, defeat the Panthers on 11/27 and win when they host the Titans 12/18 and the Texans on the 22nd. The Colts will finish 6-10 with the #5 overall pick in next year’s draft. This prediction will change if Peyton Manning comes back.
