After an eyebrow raising season in 2012, the Colts were faced with a lot of adversities and holes in the roster. The colts defense was ranked 26th in the league in Total yards, and 21st in points allowed. The revamp of the defense was necessary. Along with an ailing defense, the future face of the franchise, Andrew Luck was sacked close to 40 times. And I’m not going to say how many times he was hurried, hit, knocked down etc. because those numbers are too horrific to say or write.
So there needs to be improvements on the O-Line. Ryan Grigson was faced with challenges last year with a 2-14 team. But now he has a promising team whose potential is sky high. And to keep it that way he needs to fill in the holes on the roster. Grigson has done a great job addressing the problems. He has signed a quality RT in Gosder Cherilus, and a versatile guard in Donald Thomas. The voids he has filled in for the defense has left me speechless. he signed LaRon Landry, an extrodinary talent at the safety position. He signed Erik Walden to replace Dwight Freeney. He added strength and teeth to the D-Line by adding Ricky Jean-Francois. and he has added depth to the secondary by signing Greg Toler. Grigson has not only addressed the problems with the roster, but he took the stress off of getting someone in the draft. Grigson has outdone himself again! The sky is the limit in Indianapolis.
