INDIANAPOLIS – You asked them and we answered them.
Here’s “Four-Down Friday” which is a weekly Twitter Q and A piece that will run every Friday.
This week’s installment of questions focuses on the likes of
So the creators of the Coby Fleener “Jackhammer” dance form Detroit back in 2012 have chimed in to Four-Down Friday. Great creativity there and I know Coby hopes there’s more reasons to celebrate in 2014.
All the offseason talk about the Colts excelling with two tight ends in 2013 was put to a halt when
“They picked me for a reason and I want to prove that and step up.” Those words from Werner will be put to the test early in 2014. Werner and
Colts coaches have talked about how much more comfortable Werner is in 2014, and the outside linebacker himself admits he played a bit “scared” last season. Ryan Grigson says Werner’s “demeanor is just one of all business” this offseason. Werner's one of the most active players in the building and his pass rushing will be more than necessary with Denver and Philadelphia to open up the 2014 slate. Physically, Werner looks different but it’s hard to get a great judge on “trench” guys until the pads are put on in Anderson.
When the Colts were looking for offseason additions at the receiver position, they had a specific type of wideout targeted. The sure-handed, precise route runner is here in Reggie Wayne. The “take the top off the defense” burner is also in the fold in
Hakeem Nicks fits that mold. His size might not jump off the page as an elite “big target” but Nicks plays much bigger than his 6-1, 208-pound frame. Throughout the Colts nine-week offseason program, Nicks showed off his massive hands with snag after snag. The Colts have a trio of 1,000-yard receivers at Andrew Luck’s disposal and all three complements each other to provide No. 12 a variety of targets.
This is a question that I don’t think will have a concrete, use a sharpie to fill out your starting 11, type answer until mid-to-late August. With so much uncertainty at safety, and a few injuries, no position saw so many different faces run with the Colts first unit during minicamp.
