When your team was a Super Bowl participant the previous season and has been a contender for many years there is little need to change much. Besides some of the duties of the coaching staff, the Indianapolis Colts have not been real active.
For the Colts to take the next step they will need to get some offensive line help, something they have been looking into so far this off-season. Beyond that, they could stand to improve the defensive secondary with the departure of Marlin Jackson and the questionable health of Bob Sanders.
Ray Fisherwould love to be part of that solution without a doubt. The Indiana product visited with the Colts earlier in the week and could be the return man the team needs as well as a possible cornerback. Indianapolis ranked in the lower half of the league in kick returns last year; Fisher led the nation with a 36.1 yard kick return average last year.
Beyond that, the most exciting news coming out of Colt camp is the announcement that they will be playing the Bills in Toronto next season during the preseason. I know, I’m with you; it’s the preseason- who cares?
That is my point exactly. While the news of the NFL these days is filled with stories about players assaulting women, throwing drinks at them, driving drunk, carrying loaded guns into airports, and basically being stupid, spoiled, over-paid fools you are hearing nothing about the Colts except they are playing a preseason game in Canada. Not only is no news good news in this case (since it means no one is either acting up or getting caught acting up), it shows that the Colts are a quality organization run and populated with people you can be proud to be associated with.
Can you say that, Steeler Nation? Can you?
