So many assumptions here, I don't know where to begin:
How does Steve Young know what Andrew is thinking?
There's no effort on the part of the Colts FO, Owner and/or coaching staff to improve the team around him.
There's no talent on this team besides Andrew.
Andrew can void his contract and just decide to leave.
He would be on a losing team for his career, if he stayed.
While we can all agree that the team around him has to improve, not only for the sake of his health but for him to have a successful career, the means to that improvement can come from a new influx of players and/ or coaches or from existing players and coaches getting better each week.
If you think about individual players and ask yourself if you are glad they are Colts, you can make the case that there is more to this team than Andrew.
As far as Ballard, I'm glad the Colts landed him. If the goal is to build a team around him, he is an important piece.
I want to see how this coaching staff does when the injured players return.
At very least, what is happening now is good for the team as a whole. Young players are getting reps and depth is being built. The defense is playing together and as a result familiarity and communication should improve.
If this team keeps improving, the wins will come. Andrew could return to a team that may be the best he has played with so far. I know these are assumptions on my part but to assume things won't change (one way or another) is a bigger assumption IMO.
I guess if he really wanted to, he could pull a Carson Palmer and retire, then sign with a different team. I wish we had more positive stories to talk about. But negativity is what always sells and gets the most response.
The Rams and 49ers scored more points last night than on any other Thursday night game ever. Goff seems to be headed in the right direction and the coach Sean McVay may know something. Great ending as well.
