This was a column I never thought in a million years that I would write if you asked me during Indianapolis Colts Training Camp.
When Kevin Bowen and I gave our “All-Camp” picks, the Blue and White’s defensive backfield was a spot I felt so strongly about.
I love me some Khari Willis; Believe me I do. But other than what you see here below, he had a brutal afternoon against the Seattle Seahawks this past Sunday.
The sack? Tremendous.
The rest? Awful.
I never thought I would say that I am truly concerned about the Colts DB’s, especially safety. Cornerback and Rock Ya-Sin being responsible for Xavier Rhodes’ absence is a different story.
Willis and Julian Blackmon are usually the most trustworthy pair. They’re like the kids in high school that you know like to go out and have fun, but you never need to worry about them getting in trouble.
The Seahawks changed that.
Now with Matthew Stafford and the Los Angeles Rams coming into town, what’s it going to be like when no matter where you look on the offensive side of the ball, there’s a major weapon.
Before the season, Sports Illustrated ranked the Rams as having the fifth best wide receiver core in the league.
Robert Woods and Cooper Kupp are spooky. And DeSean Jackson is due for at least one monster game a year to remind us that he still exists.
Now, the Colts are bringing in some insurance.
Andrew Sendejo is 34-years-old.
Nice to have someone who can fill a void if necessary. But if the Colts run into trouble again on Sunday, Sendejo isn’t our Clark Kent that will soar in and save the day at Lucas Oil Stadium.
