INDIANAPOLIS – What did Colts players think of the 2015 schedule being released?
Pat McAfee got his wish. The Colts All-Pro punter was hoping to see Buffalo early on in the 2015 slate and that came to fruition on Tuesday night. From a scheduling standpoint, the Colts should really have only one game in the "elements" this season with a night game in Pittsburgh on December 6.
For a defense looking for players to emerge in the front seven, Cole has the appearance of a guy ready to step forward. Cole's role is going to be prominent in 2015 and it could be even bigger depending on the health of Robert Mathis. Cole and Colt Anderson were teammates together in Philadelphia.
In listening to Donte Moncrief this week, I had to remind myself that this guy is just 21 years old. The motivational tweets aside, Moncrief's upbringing has put things into perspective on how special this opportunity is for him. His own talent has created this chance though and Moncrief talked this week like a guy on the verge of breaking out.
Duron Carter is not at the forefront of the Colts wide receiver group, but there was no shortage of media members around him this week. Carter, the son of NFL Hall of Fame receiver Cris Carter, is getting his first true taste of football at the highest of levels. Carter has begun to catch balls from Andrew Luck, providing another unique pass catcher for the Colts quarterback.
