Now I know what many of you are thinking. You’re most likely thinking that Pagano has the most pressure coming into this season. He wasn’t given the extension so basically we’re going to call this a Super Bowl or bust season for Chuck. I will agree with you on that point but in my opinion it comes down to Hamilton and Manusky.
The Colts offense last year sputtered at times and failed to get this mythical power running game going. It all fell on Luck, as it should, but the offense was able to pick it up as the season wore on. The defense however was like a roller coaster ride.

I wanted to take time to break down the three phases of the defense and really see if any of the moves made are going to help as much as we are all thinking they will.

We are now 17 days away from the beginning of the 2015 NFL Draft. After an eventful free agency period for Indianapolis there are still some holes and question marks that GM Ryan Grigson and his staff will be looking to fill in the draft. The Colts are in a “win now” mentality and the way the roster looks so far there isn’t much reason to think it cannot happen.
Obviously this roster break down will change in the coming weeks by signing the draft picks and signed undrafted free agents. So enjoy the read and post your comments below. Continue reading Colts Pre-Draft Roster Breakdown
