I’m not sure they will get better. We have questions at every single level of the defense. Relying on guys Going into a contract season may help motivate. Rivers theoretically should be able to turn TOP into a strength. Let’s hope he isn’t washed up and our receivers stay healthy and develop more. Lots and lots of questions on this team. Wouldn’t surprise me a bit to see them ranked close to the same but possibly create more turnovers And give up fewer points a game bc the opposing offense gets less opportunities. Both are improvements where it matters.
Colts defense should be much improved this year. Especially when Buckner gets into his groove, and Blackmon comes back healthy. Blackmon will give Eberflus an extra chess piece in the secondary to move around.
I also love our LB core and could see another big step taken by Okereke this year.
