Colts Daily Headlines: October 5th Edition

Posted by Kevin Bowen on – 8:30 am

The practice week for the Colts will wrap up this morning. Today’s news looks at the Colts balanced attack, comparing Russell Wilson to Andrew Luck and Trent Richardson’s patience.

Take a look below at the top pieces from Friday, October 4th.  

Bob Kravitz: Unlike the Peyton era, Colts don’t need their quarterback to be great to win

By: Bob Kravitz, Indy Star

Since Peyton Manning arrived in Indianapolis, the Colts were almost always known for their prolific offense.

That has changed under the new Ryan Grigson-Chuck Pagano regime. In two short years, the Colts have undergone a complete personality transplant, and it’s the kind of transformation that figures to hold them in good stead for years to come.

“This is our most balanced team by far,” said Antoine Bethea, who’s been a Colt for eight years. “By far. Previous years it was Peyton and the offense. This year, the offense is doing well, special teams is playing great and the defense is doing good.”

Seahawks’ Wilson more like Luck than Kaepernick

Comparing the 2012 quarterback draft class will be an endless endeavor over the next decade.

While Russell Wilson has dual-threat capabilities, he made it clear what his “label” is as a quarterback.

“Quarterback that runs,” he said. “It’s one of those things that I love throwing the football. I love to sit back there and just step up and slide and make the throws. Then, if it’s not there, just try to get to something positive and make something happen.”

Isn’t that Luck in a nutshell?

“I know both of us can run,” Wilson said. “For how big he is, he can run extremely well. It’s one of those things that we’re looking to facilitate the ball to the right guy at the right time.”

Too early to panic with Trent Richardson

By: Mike Wells, AFC South Blog

Trent Richardson isn’t worried about his quiet start with the Indianapolis Colts.

“I know the 100-yard games are going to come,” Richardson said. “I do say ‘games,’ because there’s going to be more than one. When they do come, it’s going to keep coming. Last two teams have been stacking the box.”

Richardson has rushed for 95 yards on 33 carries in two games since the Colts acquired him from Cleveland on Sept. 18. His longest run has been 12 yards as he searches for a crease to break free.

“I’m not concerned because it’s early still and (he’s) getting acclimated to the system, to the calls, to his surroundings, to the people up front, getting used to the blocking, those types of things,” Colts coach Chuck Pagano said. “He’s a shoelace here and there from breaking some really big runs, which obviously will change those numbers.”
