I think the confusing part for me is the utilization. This is it for Campbell. This is his final season to prove he belongs in the NFL and right now the colts are not doing him any favors if their not even attempting to get him into space and let him work.
I’m not sure you and I are watching the same defense. Through 3 games the Colts have played 12 quarters and one full 10 minutes overtime.
IMO, the Colts defense has looked good for 5 quarters and the OT. I’d say the 4th Q of the Houston game plus the KC game. But the defense was unimpressive for 3 quarters of the Houston game and all 4 quarters of the JVille game. So that’s 7 bad quarters versus 5 plus good quarters. That’s hardly coming attractions for a #1 defense.
Compounding your argument our pass rush is a long way from being a top 10 rush to be feared or respected. They will likely get better this year but enough to help make this the number one overall defense? Right now this feels like you’re watching our games through Blue tinted glasses.
Hey, I’d be thrilled if you’re right, but for right now, sorry, I just don’t see what you see.
There were a bottom 2ish to start the season...
They lost to Wentz... and a bad WA team.
They beat a bad team, Indy, who let their QB set a new career high again (now twice). Totally out coached.
They beat a highly ranked team, with a QB broken ribs lol... who only goes as a far as QB takes them.
