The Jacksonville Jaguars humiliated the Indianapolis Colts today, defeating them 24-0. This was the same club that eliminated the Colts from the playoffs the previous season. A club with Super Bowl hopes suffered a devastating setback, and their head coach is aware of it.
Frank Reich, the head coach of the Colts, revealed to the media that his squad was “terrible” today and that they are not where they need to be. He nonetheless voiced certainty that the Colts’ players and coaches would be able to bounce back.
According to Reich, via ProFootballTalk, “as pitiful as it was today, the distance is not that far from where this is and where we need to be.”
“We have the coaching and athletes to make it happen. I’m okay with the fact that it isn’t how things work in the real world. We’ll continue doing what we’re doing while taking our medications, including mine.
However, Reich has a big hole for his squad to climb out of. After two weeks, they are 0-1-1 and have played meekly against two NFL clubs that are predicted to be among the worst.
After just one season with the franchise, the Indianapolis Colts decided to trade quarterback Carson Wentz and bring in the older, more seasoned Matt Ryan.
Ryan, meanwhile, has played poorly in his first two games with the Colts, at best. He was restricted to fewer than 200 passing yards today, with three interceptions, and a passer efficiency rating of 34.0.
The Colts’ upcoming few weeks won’t be any simpler either. They play the explosive Indianapolis Colts the following week, the rival Tennessee Titans the week after, and then, on a short week, they travel to face the Denver Broncos.
The Colts have a good possibility of going 1-4 or possibly 0-5 before mid-October.
