The Indianapolis Colts came into Sunday’s matchup with the Jacksonville Jaguars holding the same record and needing to prove quite a bit on both sides of the ball. The offense needed to prove they could take it to a top passing defense http://www.authenticsindianapoliscolts.com/cheap-adam-vinatieri-jersey , and the defense needed to prove they could stop the run and eliminate any big play situations.The Colts did both of those for spells, but ultimately this game was a mixed bag. The Colts dominated offensively in the first half, but could not sustain drives in the second and were shut out. Defensively the Colts allowed big plays, but continued to be a unit that could make a play to change the course of the game.Today, Matt Danely will dive into everything that we saw in Sunday’s first meeting of the two teams, look at what the team did really well, who stepped up to the challenge, and also how the Colts nearly lost the game and who needs to become more of a piece of the solution if the Colts are going to make a legitimate impression throughout the back stretch of the season.Among the topics discussed today are:The Colts running game/run defenseExplosive plays earned and allowedFrank Reich’s challenge in the second half of the seasonTyquan Lewis’ first game coming off of IRHow do the Colts see T.Y. Hilton’s future role shaking out?Colts linebackersKenny Moore becoming vital now, and a piece for the futureSecond half mistakes that stalled offenseHow the offense set up big playsAndrew Luck and his offensive linePlease subscribe, rate and review the channel anywhere you listen to podcasts. It’s the bye week and the middle of the season, so it’s the perfect time to write the Colts’ midseason report card! Which group got the highest grade and which got the lowest?QuarterbackLuck had his issues at the start of the season, which I expected, but in the last couple of weeks, he’s been as good as anyone in the NFL. In the last two games, he’s gone 39 for 53 (73.5%) for 395 yards (7.5 YPA) with 7 touchdowns and 0 interceptions. He’s battled the entire season with a depleted receiving corps and several injuries on offense. On paper White J'Marcus Webb Jersey , this has been arguably his best season in the pros and he’s getting better every week. With Doyle back, he should continue to thrive. Grade: A-Running BackThe running game was non-existent at the beginning of the season, but like Luck, it’s thrived in the last few games. Marlon Mack and Nyheim Hines are becoming a very formidable duo with Jordan Wilkins and Robert Turbin providing very good depth. This group has been aided a lot by the strong play of the offensive line in recent weeks, but Mack and Hines can create plays anywhere on the field and that’s very encouraging.Grade: B+Wide ReceiversThis group has struggled throughout the season with drops, poor routes and poor effort. When TY Hilton was down, Chester Rogers had to carry the load and let’s just say he isn’t the type of player who can do that. This group isn’t talented and not deep. They’ve had to go with Zach Pascal and Ryan Grant as the primary receivers as times this season, which is beyond bad. I don’t expect this unit to get much better as the season goes on due to the lack of talent, so they’ll need to rely on TY Hilton to carry the group for the remainder of the year. Grade: CTight EndsThe Colts’ tight end group is the best in the NFL. Against the Raiders, they set an NFL record with 3 different tight ends each scoring a touchdown in a single game. Doyle is a great all-around tight end who is a difference maker on the field. Eric Ebron is playing at a high level this season and might sneak onto the 2nd team All-Pro team. Mo Alie-Cox and Erik Swoope are two solid receiving options with high ceilings. This group has the potential to be special moving forward. Grade: A+Offensive LineWhen was the last time this group got a grade better than a C+? It’s been awhile, but the Colts offensive line looks great. Ryan Kelly is having as good a season as any center in the NFL. Quenton Nelson and Anthony Castonzo are looking very formidable on the left side. Mark Glowinski and Braden Smith are holding their own on the right side, with both shining at different times this season. If the offensive line can continue to play at a high level, this team can do a lot of damage on offense against any team. Grade: A-Defensive LineThe interior defensive line has been good but not great. They haven’t been able to create much pressure inside, but they’ve done a good job against the run and have been able to clog up the inside gaps. The edge defenders, Margus Hunt Youth Malik Hooker Jersey , Jabaal Sheard and Kemoko Turay have all been great this season and have been able to generate a lot of pressure on the quarterback. Of the 21 sacks the Colts have recorded this year, 11 have come from those three players. They’ve carried this group and probably will all season. Grade: BLinebackersWhat can you say about Darius Leonard? Without him, this group probably gets a C. Leonard has changed games and helped seal the game for the Colts last week against the Raiders with an amazing tomahawk chop forced fumble. He can do it all, which makes him a perfect WILL linebacker for the Colts’ 4-3 defense. Anthony Walker has been a good complimentary piece, but those two players seem like the only legitimate starters of the entire linebacker group, which means they’ll need to find a good third player for that group in the offseason. The other players show too much inexperience and lack discipline with their eyes and angles. Grade: B+SecondaryIt’s been an up and down season for the secondary, but they’ve had their highlights. It’s a young, inexperienced group that has been able to carry their own throughout the season. The safety group has been pretty good for the most part and I find Mike Mitchell has been a very good mid-season signing for the team. The cornerback group is very young and while no one has stood out, no one has been particularly bad, so that’s probably a positive considering the talent level of the group. Grade: B-Special TeamsAdam Vinatieri, with the exception of one injury-riddled week, has been as consistent and solid as ever. Rigoberto Sanchez has been steady (nothing great but not bad) and the coverage units have been especially good this season not allowing any big gains or returns. The return teams have yet to do damage, but overall the special teams units have been very good. Grade: B+CoachingDepending on how you view the Texans overtime decision, your grade might be higher or lower. Reich came in and took over an inconsistent offensive unit and made them into a legitimate top 10 NFL offense. In the last 5 games, there might not be a better offense than Indianapolis. In the last 5 games Youth T.Y. Hilton Jersey , they’ve averaged 34 points per game with some great performances against top defenses, some of them on the road. The team has a balanced identity on offense and they’ve adopted an aggressive mentality in every game. While the Colts’ record isn’t reflective of their play, which is on the coaching staff, I do find this team is going in the right direction, so I give Reich and the coaches credit for that. Grade: B+Three Highest Grades1. Tight End (A+)T-2. Quarterback (A-)T-2. Offensive Line (A-)Three Lowest Grades1. Wide Receiver (C)2. Secondary (B-)3. Defensive Line (cool smileyMidseason AwardsMVP & Best Offensive Player: Andrew LuckWho else?Best Defensive Player: Darius LeonardLeonard has been a revelation this season. Not only is he the frontrunner for defensive rookie of the year, but he might even get a couple of top 5 votes for defensive player of the year. He has 88 tackles, 7 tackles for a loss including 4 sacks, and 3 forced fumbles through 7 games (he missed one with an injury). Those numbers might make him an All-Pro candidate. He’s the easy choice for best defensive player on the Colts. Most Surprising: Kemoko TurayFor the sake of not going with Leonard again, I decided to go with Turay. Out of all the rookies, Turay has the second most amount of quarterback pressures with 25. He has improved each week and it looks like he’ll become a legitimate player and starter in this league. You would think that with those decent grades and a lot of talented rookies this team would be better than 3-5, but unfortunately they’re not. While that makes them a great bounce-back candidate for a strong second half of the NFL season, it also means they have an uphill climb for the playoffs, but as I wrote two weeks ago, they have a good chance of making the playoffs.
