Colts RB Frank Gore: 'I didn't come here for this'

When Frank Gore signed up with the Indianapolis Colts in 2015, the franchise was coming off back-to-back division titles and three straight playoff appearances.

It was supposed to be a team primed to take a step forward. Instead, coach Chuck Pagano's squad has crashed, going 8-8 last season and starting this year 2-4.

Following Sunday night's disheartening collapse to the Houston Texans, Gore lamented the situation while talking to Indianapolis Star columnist Gregg Doyle.

"I didn't come here for this," the former 49ers running back said. "I came here to get into the tournament."

According to Doyle, while the rest of the players talked in platitudes about getting back to work and putting the loss behind them, Gore seemed frustrated almost to tears.

With the loss, the Colts fell to last place in the AFC South. In the cellar of the worst division in the NFL isn't a place that a team with playoff aspirations should find itself six games into the season.

"We'll go back to work tomorrow," Pagano said Sunday. "What else are you gonna do?"

The Colts have come unhinged due to a defense that can't get stops when it matters, an inconsistent offense and a coaching staff that perpetually mismanages games.

Unfortunately for Gore, with a roster haphazardly put together by Ryan Grigson and mismanaged by Pagano, things appear more likely to get worse in Indy before they get better.
