Indianapolis Colts: Coby Fleener Finally Steps Up in Huge Game
Entering this season, most fans and media types expected a huge year out of Indianapolis Colts tight end Coby Fleener. The second-year player had a full season in the NFL under his belt and is coming back with his college quarterback Andrew Luck and their offensive coordinator in Pep Hamilton as he had the same role with the Colts as he did in Stanford.
Unfortunately, the preseason was filled with dropped passes and injuries for Fleener and through the first six games of 2013, he was mediocre at best. He was dropping way too many easy passes and not being as effective as everyone had hoped. He was blamed by many for their horrid loss to the San Diego Chargers last week and needed to rebound for a big game with the Denver Broncos last night.
Fleener did just that as he had five catches for 38 yards and a key touchdown. He was all over the field actually catching balls, making blocks and coming up strong. All of those were big reasons why Indianapolis won, as his best stat of all was zero drops.
If Fleener can keep playing like that, he will be a very good tight end in this league. He had to already step up big time with fellow position mate and classmate Dwayne Allen being lost for the season, but now even more so with reports stating that wide receiver Reggie Wayne will be out too. It’s time for Fleener to grow up and catch everything thrown at him. Last night was a big step in the right direction.
