Jeff Saturday believes the Colts will finish with a record near 8-8 Jeff Saturday sat down Sunday evening to watch his former team take on the Cincinnati Bengals. After watching Youth Ryan Kelly Jersey
, Saturday could tell this year’s team is already better than the 2017 version. He went as far as predicting where they will end up after 16 games. “I think if they get anywhere near 8-8 — 7-9 or 9-7 — it will be a very, very good year,” Saturday said via the IndyStar. “They’ve got a lot of things to address.”With a lot of fresh faces, and a quarterback still looking to get back into his old groove, the Colts are still in the rebuilding stage of Chris Ballard and Frank Reich’s tenure. There’s a lot of kinks to work out, and Saturday knows that. “You’re coming off of (Andrew) Luck’s injury. You have a brand new offense Youth Quenton Nelson Jersey
, a new defense, a new head coach,” the former Colts center said. “All the newness is going to take some time to (work through).”“There are still enough holes that need to be filled,” Saturday said. “It’s a game of attrition. The NFL is a game of attrition,” Saturday added. With a win against the lowly Bills, this week’s FanPulse survey revealed that Colts fans have had a huge injection of confidence heading into the coming weeks. While the season has been relatively steady in terms of fan confidence about this team’s direction Youth Braden Smith Jersey
, the loss to the Jets certainly put a bit of a dent in that confidence.So why the big boost when all they did was beat a bad team? Well there is good reason for it. The Bills’ defense has been a pretty solid unit in the league this season. They’ve been saddled with a historically bad offense, and that has been a major reason for the team’s struggles. The Colts offense showed up on Sunday and absolutely embarrassed them by racking up 220 yards on the ground and controlling the game from start to finish. Andrew Luck finished with 4 touchdown passes, no interceptions, and the Colts gave up no sacks for the second consecutive week since seeing starting left tackle Anthony Castonzo return. While the defensive performance was impressive, it is tougher to take a lot from that given the impotence of the Bills’ offense. However, the domination of a good defense is notable http://www.authenticsindianapoliscolts.com/cheap-jabaal-sheard-jersey
, and Colts fans clearly are seeing a different looking offense as they begin to get their playmakers back. That surge of confidence is certainly aided by the floundering of divisional rivals elsewhere as well. The Jaguars have scored 14 points total over their last two games and don’t have any clear reason to expect dramatic improvement in the near future. Their fans are understandably listless.The Titans have also dropped 3 straight and look like a mess. Despite losing 3 straight games including a loss to the Chargers in London, Titans fans experienced a surge of confidence as they head into their bye week. This is undoubtedly due to the knowledge that this is the one week left on their schedule where they can guarantee they won’t lose a game. When you add the struggles of the division in with some very encouraging trends on the Colts’ roster, it makes a lot of sense that fans would be right back to believing that this team is on the right track. Whether that translates this season to playoff hopes or not is largely irrelevant. We are seeing a renewed team with a clear vision, and the teams in this division that stood in the way of the Colts are starting to show the cracks in their facade.
