The Season is underway and the Indianapolis Colts are left with a shocked look on their face. This shock comes from the fact that the Houston Texans ran over the team and made them an example of the NFL. This was and will for a while be a tough defeat for the team to endure as this showed them that they have flaws.
These flaws were put on display for the entire world to see when they took to the field on Sunday, once these two teams met, it became that the Colts were outmanned and had themselves in a tight situation. This as a result led to the team having a complete lack of performance and many asking the question is Peyton Manning losing his touch?
Looking at the performance that the team put forth inn the way of passing, this seemed to be the case and many fans feel that it is time to look for a new quarterback. There are those that still say that Manning is still as good as he once was and is just in a dry spell. The problem with the dry spell is that they are now looked at as being weak and defenseless.
Manning as with any player in his position is considered to be the leader of the team. There was a serious lack of leadership for the team and this led to there being a complete failure on all regards of the team. Even the unbreakable defense was not able to hold up to the onslaught that the team was put through when they took to the field.
The running game of the Colts are often times looked at as being the second best element of the team, this however led to the team feeling like they were without a quality play that would advance the ball down the field. The Colts were naked and unable to get the ball down the field with the running back.
This is not a complete disaster that the Colts are in the middle of, There is plenty that the team is able to do in order to get their offense as well as their defense back on track and recover from the problems that they suffered in the opening week.
When They take to the field next time, the Colts will need to make sure that they have the issues taken care of and are prepared to take their opponents to task as a result. If these issues are not addressed, then the Colts will be looking for an answer that will give them a spark of life to get back on track.
The Colts are still able to get on track and salvage the remaing part of the season, there will be a lot of work that needs to be done, but in the end it will be all worth while. If these adjustments are not made, then the Colts will see a long season ahead of them and will not be able to recover from this.
