The Indianapolis Colts caused a lot of confusion a couple of weeks ago with the announcement of their #ColtsForged marketing campaign, and after Week 1 of the NFL season, they have created a lot more questions.
It appears the team spent more time preparing for the #ColtsForged initiative than their game against the L.A Rams. After a catastrophic 46-9 loss, it was apparent that preparation didn’t exist, as seen by Chuck Pagano thinking they were playing the San Francisco 49ers the entire time. After promoting a franchise that is blue collar, hard working and being #ColtsForged, the team’s Week 1 performance seemed more like a magical episode from My Little Pony.
It is clear that the entire Colts franchise has no clue what they are doing. The biggest question mark coming out of Week 1 is where to go from here? It is obvious that Scott Tolzien cannot play in the NFL, and that was obvious before he was even signed by the Colts. It is also obvious that Chuck Pagano cannot coach as he was out-coached on all three sides of the ball by a 31-year-old first-time head coach. Pagano has been in the league for 16 years, and for being a “defensive guru” he has had over five seasons to improve the Colts defense, with zero results. Fair to say it looks like the players in Baltimore created Chuck Pagano, rather than Chuck Pagano making the players.
It is also crystal clear that the owner has no idea what they are doing either. Indianapolis has an owner who cares more about his prescription pills and other addictions than the team that he should be providing leadership for. If you put aside these disastrous decisions, there is also the fact that he is clueless in other areas, as highlighted by the hiring of Ryan Grigson and Chuck Pagano.
The bottom line is that Colts fans deserve more than what they have received so far. Instead of a #ColtsForged team that is ready to work hard and earn every victory on the field, Colts fans will be in for a long season of pretty little ponies who are just glad to be there….for now.
Before the season started, it was the New York Jets who seemed to be the laughing stock of the NFL this season. Now, it looks like the My Little Ponies of Indianapolis will take their place.
