Champs Ground Game Ranked 25th by Scouts Inc.

A recent ranking of running games by Scouts Inc. says thatAddai the Colts ground game in 2007 is not going to be all that good.  With losing Dominic Rhodes and having to depend on 2nd year back Joseph Addai, the report says the team is going to have their issues. Below is the recap of the Colts #25 ranking heading into 2007:

25. Indianapolis Colts

The Colts finished the 2006 regular season 18th in rushing yards per game. This might seem a little low for the defending Super Bowl champs, but they lost Dominic Rhodes and have marginal depth behind Joseph Addai. Addai is coming off a solid rookie campaign and likely will have to handle more than 90 percent of the load this season. The Colts see Addai in that Edgerrin James mold; he will rarely come out of a game. Addai is a good runner, and he catches the ball well out of the backfield. He is more than capable of carrying the load, but if he gets injured, the Colts’ backfield would be a disaster with only DeDe Dorsey and Kenton Keith as backups.
