Indianapolis Colts’ Comeback Overhyped?
The Indianapolis Colts pulled off one of the greatest comebacks of all time. You know what that means — the media and the average fans are going to eat this up all week. I get it. Andrew Luck played one heck of a game. I’ll give Luck credit where credit is due. Luck will fight till the end. In this era of athletes, I sometimes question whether or not they even care. That is not the case with Luck. He was calm, poised, and he motivated his team to come back.
I have one problem with all of the hype: their opponent was the Kansas City Chiefs. The Chiefs were not nearly as good as advertised. Their hot start was mostly due to a combination of backup quarterbacks and subpar teams. Alex Smith was was mobile, he was on target and he was more than a game manager. He had two poor throws that prevented the Chiefs from sealing the deal. He made this game more difficult for the Colts then I thought it was going to be.
At the end of the day, as good as Luck was, the Chiefs were just as bad. The defensive backs failed to make plays, and no team should ever lose a lead that big. It’s in excusable. Luck had seven possessions in the second half. Andy Reid is a great coach, but seven possessions is way to many. He had to figure out how to keep Luck off the field.
