Sam Ehlinger didn’t assist the Colts escape their blazing dumpster hearth
Because it seems, going with Sam Ehlinger at quarterback didn’t enhance the Indianapolis Colts.
Sam Ehlinger nearly introduced Texas again, identical to he nearly gained his first sport because the Indianapolis Colts beginning quarterback.
Accidents, benching, no matter. Matt Ryan would have gained this sport for the Colts at residence over Taylor Heinicke and the remainder of the Washington Commanders. There is no such thing as a denying it anymore. The Colts do not know what they’re doing. Frank Reich ain’t it, and he’s in all probability going to value Chris Ballard his job, too. Jim Irsay wants to arrange for an eighth straight 12 months with an AFC South crown.
At 3-4-1, what makes you suppose the Colts are going to take a flip for the higher within the second half?
Former Texas star quarterback Sam Ehlinger couldn’t deliver the Colts again both
The one saving grace for the Colts is that they play in a division with the crap-tastic Houston Texans and the always-toothless Jacksonville Jaguars. Too dangerous the Colts have already been swept by Mike Vrabel’s Tennessee Titans, a workforce that truly gained a sport with its backup quarterback on Sunday, as Malik Willis went 6-for-10 with 55 yards passing and a choose in his first profession NFL begin.
I don’t actually know what to say right here aside from this workforce is cooked. We are able to’t maintain taking the bait on the podium anymore. We’re being offered a invoice of products that perhaps someday this workforce will likely be adequate to win the AFC South and get again to contending for Super Bowls. This isn’t an not possible ask, however the Colts maintain treating the division crown like an asymptote it could possibly by no means cross.
Look. This isn’t on Ehlinger. It was his first begin. That is on the whole operation. A one-point loss at residence to a Washington soccer workforce shouldn’t make followers bail on this workforce quicker than the Colts did on Matt Ryan, however sufficient is sufficient! Washington is the league’s most dysfunctional mess and the Commanders got here into your constructing and beat you with an at-best stop-gap starter.
If the Colts run it again, they could as effectively assist the Titans increase one more AFC South title banner.
