Indianapolis Colts Forget to Show Up Against a Bad St. Louis Rams Team
Indianapolis, IN- It doesn’t get much worse than this for the Indianapolis Colts. The St. Louis Rams were reeling entering Sunday’s game as they were 3-6 with a terrible offense led by second string quarterback Kellen Clemens. The Colts, on the other hand, were 6-2 coming off of wins against the San Francisco 49ers, Seattle Seahawks, Denver Broncos and the Houston Texans.
It should have never really been a contest. The Colts should have won this easily and cruised into next week’s game with the Tennessee Titans.
Instead, someone forgot to alert the Colts.
In the words of Miley Cyrus, the Rams just “came in like a wrecking ball.” After Andrew Luck led the Colts down the field on the opening drive, but he fumbled when getting hit and allowed a defensive touchdown. That was the end of the Colts’ day.
From there it looked as if the 2011 Colts were on the field as they could do nothing right. They made a mediocre receiver in Tavon Austin look like Jerry Rice and the below average Rams defense look like the 1985 Chicago Bears.
That’s not how Super Bowl contending teams play. Championship teams don’t lose to bad teams like the Rams.
There are no excuses for Indianapolis. They flat out lost to a terrible team, and there’s no way around it. The Rams aren’t better than the Colts today, tomorrow, yesterday or next year. You can’t lose at home to teams like that.
Now, they must get back to Colts football in just a few days and try to win the AFC South division. This is one of the worst all-time losses for the Colts.
