Indy Will Be a Much Better Rushing Team Next Year

The Colts have been, shall I say, suckish on the run for these past two seasons. Now more defenses know each play it most probably be Manning dropping back to pass besides Joseph Addai or Donald Brown going up the middle. And even if a running play is called, Manning will either audible it, or if they do the play: get stuffed behind the backfield or get a small gain more often than not. This is why the Colts are in the low 20s and 30s in the ranks of rushing yards per game.

But during the Super Bowl, I saw hope for next season. Joseph Addai and Donald Brown ran fabulously duringĀ  that game. Addai had his longest run of 30 yards or more since his rookie or sophomore year in the NFL. That’s how crazy it was for this horrible rushing team. After witnessing that game on the run, there will be hope for next season in 2010-11.

Which is why I say the Colts will be back to their old rushing ways where how Addai played between the years of 2006-07. And with a hopeful Donald Brown, this team can be flourished on the running side of the ball. I am telling ya, it could happen. That Saints team was a tough, old defense and the Colts ran right all over them.

So Colts’ fans, I see a really different year during 2010. We all know the passing will be good no matter what receiver Peyton has (we saw that this year with Garcon and Collie). But the question is, how about the run? The Colts’ rushing game has drastically improved in their last few games of the season. It’s going to be totally different next year.

So a little note to those defenses: it’s time to watch out. This Colts’ team is going to get those passes on you…and the runs!
