State of the Franchise: Pending

The Indianapolis Colts have a soft run defense and didn’t do much about it int he draft or free agency. Getting a running back and replacing Reggie Wayne at receiver in free agency was good. But since the got another speed receiver in the first round of the draft, we won’t know if the Colts are truly ascending until we know if they’ll be able to stop the run.
