What Is the Problem?
Here is what has happened:
OC Pep Hamilton has been very stubborn with his power run scheme. we havent even gotten close to that since the SF game. He needs to improvise. The only game the colts won on the ground was the game in SF, and the Thursday Night Football game against Tennessee. He needs to get a clue. We need to throw the ball. With Bruce Arians, we beat teams through the air. As obvious as it was, it was effective. the offense was putting points on the board. There are 2 things that can happen as an offense. Either the run open up the pass, or the pass opens up the run. Trust me, its true.
Our offense is way too vanilla. when you want to have a power run offense, you need a powerful interior offensive line. we dont have that. so we have been running the ball ineffectively, which has been making us deal with 3rd and long situations, which makes us have quick three-and-outs. when the offense is ineffective, the defense will always play poorly.
Now Im not saying i dont blame the defense. the defense is playing awful. But if the offense can stay on the field for more than a minute, maybe they can catch their breath.
There is a lot of work to be done. As of right now, we would play the Chiefs in the playoffs. We need t step up if we want to make a run.
