Boom needs rest, I would guess.  The reason behind putting Richardson in any game isn't to have him run the ball, but to give our other RBs a rest.

 

TD!

Im sure it's more because he is the better blocking back.  He is doing well in that aspect.  They throw a lot when he is in!

Our special teams are a joy to watch.  It's about time.

They've come a loooooooooooong way over the past couple of seasons. Now they're pretty darn good on coverage and returns. We have one of the best kickers and THE best punter in the game on top of it.

 

It really is great to see. Gone are the years of "KNEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEL!" shouted by the home crowd on a return....that we were lucky not to fumble. In the span of a few years we've gone from annual Special toilet teams  to being among the best this season. You can make a case for us being the top ST team in the NFL.

    • Assuming we come out of the 1st 7 games at 5-2 which is a likely outcome, we won't really find out what this team is made of until we play the Ravens and Titans.  
    • The only element that "might" struggle is our running game, but I don't think that will happen either. Our pass O, pass D, and rush D should all dominate. My fear is we come out with a very conservative game plan, playing soft zone, and trying to not pass. 
    • I'm optimistic too, but "potential" can be a trap. I like the measurables of the guys we have, but most are wildcards. And let's be honest, the "potential" we've had has been a bit stunted in terms of growth due to QB woes 2 of our last 4 years. But yes, we do have a lot of speedy athletic, although raw and small school guys at WR. TE is however another story. If we remove Burton from the conversation (he's not a traditional TE, and is more slot than anything), Doyle is the only proven, and MAC is the only one I see with legit potential. At RB, Taylor is the only legit true RB aside from Mack. Wilkins is good depth, but he's not bell cow between the Ts guy. He's a zone rushing back most effective on the edge. Great depth, and will look great later in games behind our OL, but not a #1. Hines is a great APB and is legit. 
    • The Colts not only need to win, but they need to come out and make a statement on Sunday. They need to destroy the Jets on both sides of the ball and win this game by a landslide.
    • Ballard completely rebuild 98% of the roster in three years. I don't count 2017 because he didn't have his own coaching staff and had to deal with Pagano. Even with Andrew Luck retiring, Ballard never stopped building the Colts into the highly talented roster they currently have today. I don't think Ballard gets enough credit just like I don't think Andrew Luck got enough when he was carrying the Colts pitiful roster for multiple years on his back.
