The Indianapolis Colts could very well be the best team in the NFL. Let’s be honest; wins over the Seattle Seahawks, Denver Broncos and San Francisco 49ers are all really impressive. However, this Colts team has shown one glaring weakness and it doesn’t have anything to do with Reggie Wayne‘s torn ACL.
In the last three weeks of play, Indy has been outscored by its opponent 66 to 9 in the first half! I’m sorry, but Super Bowl winning teams don’t play two quarters of football — they play four. And head coach Chuck Pagano is going to learn this lesson the hard way if something doesn’t change.
Besides, anyone with an inch of NFL knowledge will tell you that the postseason is a different animal when it comes to slow starts. I’ll give the Colts credit for storming back to beat the Tennessee Titans on Thursday in a huge divisional match-up. However, If Indianapolis doesn’t snap out of this first-half funk, then you can pencil the Colts in as a one-and-done team come playoff time for the second straight year.
