Enough balls to go around in Indy?
By Mike Wells
I've been asked a lot of questions for this weekend's Twitter Mailbag. So I'll go ahead and get it started by answering this question, then putting the rest of the Mailbag out Saturday.
I don't think the Colts can have too many players for quarterback Andrew Luck to choose to throw the ball to. Last season, you were left wondering who he was going to throw it to at times because of the Colts' depth concerns and inexperience at receiver with Griff Whalen, LaVon Brazill and Da'Rick Rogers.
Offensive coordinator Pep Hamilton enjoys having a number of running backs to use. He constantly reminded the media that they would use all three running backs at the start of last season.
There's always a chance of injuries. That's why there's nothing wrong with having a full cupboard to choose from. Too many is always better than not enough. The good thing about the Colts is that they lack selfish players. It's all about the team. So look at this as a good problem for them to have.
