Carson Wentz is the rusted boat anchor dragging Frank Reich into the abyss

Frank Reich is a smart guy, but everybody knows you should never get back with your ex, even if that ex was great for three-quarters of a season before he got hurt and his backup won a Super Bowl that allowed you to get the Indianapolis Colts job in the first place. Through three weeks, the Colts are tied for last place with the utterly toothless Jacksonville Jaguars in AFC South play.

This was the year the Colts should have won the AFC South. After falling to the Tennessee Titans, they are two games back of their division rival and may not even be a wild card team this year. This roster is too talented for Reich to not win the Colts’ first division crown since before Andrew Luck got permanently rag dolled. This is what happens when you bring Carson Wentz into the building.

You are the company you keep and Reich’s company is a rusted boat anchor that will drag his once-promising coaching career into the abyss. Wentz did a number on Doug Pederson and the Philadelphia Eagles before coming to Indianapolis. It does not matter that both of his ankles were dislocated. It is only Week 3! This is what you signed up for by trading for Wentz in the first place.

No organization is underachieving more unspectacularly than the Colts through three weeks.
