Raider/Colts-- we gotta protect #12 better..and that includes more than just OL...it's backs,TE's,coaches on blitz pick ups..I DEMAND betterâ Jim Irsay (@JimIrsay) September 11, 2013
Irsay's concerns are valid.
Sunday's home date against the Dolphins pits Indy's protection scheme against Miami pass rusher Cameron Wake, who flattened the Cleveland Browns in the season opener. Wake's 2.5 sacks of Brandon Weeden headlined an effort in which Cleveland's quarterback was dropped six times and hit endlessly.
The Colts used the offseason to rebuild an offensive line that gave up 41 sacks last season and made Luck the fourth-most-pressured passer in the NFL. Irsay wants this Sunday to look different:
Dolphin/Colts-Make no mistake about it/The Fish CAN and WILL bring the HEAT...We gotta MAN-UP and confront HEAT with a NASA-like Heat-Shieldâ Jim Irsay (@JimIrsay) September 11, 2013
We picture Irsay on some billion-dollar seafaring vessel with a daiquiri in hand as he issues various demands upon humanity -- and we like it.The "Around The League Podcast" is now available on iTunes! Click here to listen and subscribe.
