I had a chance to spend time with a number of ticket brokers over the weekend and the process was simple.
The brokers were interested in the Colts as a home game and were willing to sell seats for that.
They were interested to sell Colts tickets to sell as part of a package deal.
It was just about a $200-$250 savings over what you would normally be paying.
I was able to get my ticket for $200 to a number that I didn’t even know existed.
The price was right for a home-field advantage, and for a team that had just won the AFC South title and had a young team that was struggling with injuries.
But, as is so often the case, the numbers don’t tell the whole story.
The numbers have changed over the years.
The Colts were a .500 team in 2010.
They had a losing record in the AFC West that year, and were playing in a stadium that was only used for NFL games.
In 2012, they went on a winning streak that included winning four in a row, and their offense was averaging more than 25 points a game.
That was a big step up from 2010, when they were averaging just 14.2 points a year.
But even then, the Colts were still a poor home team.
The 2011 season was not as good as they had been in the previous two seasons, but the offense had a lot of room for improvement.
Indianapolis’ defense ranked 12th in the league in points allowed per game and finished with a defensive rating of 110.2.
It ranked fourth in total defense, with an average of 105.4.
The Colts defense also ranked seventh in points per game allowed per play.
But, they were still very good.
The Indianapolis defense allowed just 15.7 points a contest.
That included a plus-12 mark against the pass.
And, their rushing defense allowed 21.8 points a day.
That unit was a bit more balanced than it had been during the previous few seasons, which was an encouraging sign.
But the Colts offense had not improved much.
They scored just 13.5 points per contest that season, the worst in the NFL, and they averaged just 13 yards per play against the run.
They averaged 3.5 yards per carry.
In 2012, the offensive line had a major issue.
In just two games, they allowed 30 points.
And in the season opener against the New Orleans Saints, the line allowed a total of 26 points.
They gave up an average rushing yardage of 4.4 yards per rush.
The offensive line was not a huge issue last year, but it’s not a big issue now.
And it was a concern going into this season.
I have a hard time envisioning any team getting to the Super Bowl without a strong offensive line.
This year, the offense has gotten much better, but still isn’t as good.
The starting offensive line is now Joel Bitonio and Jack Mewhort.
Bitonian and Mewhert are a solid pair of offensive linemen, but they have issues.
They’re not able to block well, and Bitonie has never been a great run blocker.
Mewhart is the best in the game, but he’s also very undersized, and he can be a liability on the offensive side of the ball.
The offensive line has been bad this year.
There are some positives to this offensive line, though.
The starting line has a couple of big names in Jermon Bushrod and Anthony Castonzo, who have been productive, but are still young.
And the starters are very good, with two of them having more career games than all the other players combined.
I wouldn’t expect the offensive lines to regress much over the next few years.
In fact, I think the Colts could have the best line in football.
The two best offensive linemen in football are now both older than the starting line, and both have been around a while.
The other big guy on the line, Jermaine Eluemunor, is coming off a very good season in which he rushed for 1,532 yards and 16 touchdowns.
The line should be able to keep Eluumunor and Mewhitre healthy for a while, and it should be a unit that can win games when they need to.
If the Colts can keep the offensive linemen healthy, they could be very good this year, too.
And if the line stays healthy, I’m pretty confident the offensive system will improve.
I would expect the Colts to finish with a winning record this season, but if the offensive coordinator changes, it could take the Colts out of the playoffs.
The coaching staff should not have to be replaced, and the offensive players should not be replaced.
The team should be good.
