4) Problems on the OL
The Colts line wasn’t that great in 2011, so they gave the line a complete makeover. While they should be fine at left tackle and center, the other three positions should leave fans concerned. Jeff Linkenbach played tackle last year, but will likely play guard this year. His -18.6 run defense rating last year doesn’t bode well for his transition back to guard. Mike McGlynn will be in his third home over the past three years. He is slated to play right guard, but has had games in succession where he has played well, and then consecutive groups of games where he plays poorly. The Colts added another former Eagle in Winston Justice to play right tackle. He played just 84 snaps in 2011. We last saw him in major action in 2010, and he started to flounder as the season went on, which ended with his four penalty performance against the Packers in the playoffs. The offensive line will look very different in 2012 than it was in 2011, but that doesn’t necessarily mean it will be much better.
We have the opportunity to take advantage of all these teams Offensive line woes :)
Add Six games vs the Raiders (OT), Chargers (OT), and Broncos (entire O-line). Romeo should roll
