Stats Every week www.indianapoliscoltsteamonline.com , I will present a summary of some basic and advanced stats for the Colts performance relative to the league. Thanks to Pro Football Reference, NFL.com and the nflSCrapR project for being awesome sources of weekly data.It’s been 4 weeks and I’m still not sure what this defense is.DVOA has the Colts D ranked 10th, which seems high to me, but not ridiculously so.Maybe I’m just being stubborn, but even if the “true” ranking is just average, that’s a hell of a lot more than I expected in August. Against the Texans, the defense ended up surrendering 37 points but 6 of that was in OT,7 was from a Texans defensive score, and another 7 was off of a micro-field gifted by another Colts turnover deep in their own territory. The point is that the defense played well enough to win this game. As always, I look to DSR first and a mark of 75% is indicative of giving a way a lot of movement up and down the field. If I remove overtime, then it falls to about 71% which is better than last week and also precisely what the Colts offense put up this week (and why DSR is an awesome stat: tie in DSR, go to OT).One driver of that slightly improved performance is that the Colts defense only gave away one first down on penalties. That was the Achilles heel against the Eagles that caused the “bend” to “break”.Last week, I wrote that I didn’t think 5 sacks and 2 turnovers was repeatable and since the defense notched 7 sacks and 1 turnover I guess I was technically right . . . but not really.TEAM TOTALThe defense gave up a lot of 1st downs (35% of plays)and let Houston convert 3rd downs at a 50% clip.Given that Indy forced Houston into an average 8.1 yards to gain on third, that should have been a lot lower. That is where you keep the “bend” from breaking.PASSINGHouston’s aDOT of 7.2 isn’t that long, so they weren’t really stretching the field, but their air yards per completion of 7.6 is longer Indianapolis Colts T-Shirt , which is unusual. It means they completed long passes at a higher rate than short ones.Not sure what to make of that because this defense is supposed to experience the opposite. After the catch, the Colts limited the Texans to 5.4 YAC which ranks 12th for the week and something they have been good at all season. RUSHINGWhile the Colts surrendered 119 rush yards, they were stingy from an efficiency perspective. Only 6 of Houston’s 35 carries resulted in first downs. Often, that is a sign of a team running out the clock but that wasn’t the case here.The Colts did let Houston go 3 for 3 on rushing third down conversions but overall, less than 1 in 3 Texan runs were successful and weighted success rate ranks that as 4th best this week. CONCLUSIONAll the numbers point to Indy having an average to good defense, which is hard for me to believe, but there it is.If the offense can stay on the field and stop turning the ball over in opponent territory, the D may be able to shine a little brighter. SEASON TOTALS (per game)Colts still evaluating roster at tackle; Castonzo could get snaps in preseason Each and every day we get excited about the fact that the Indianapolis Colts have improved the interior of their offensive line in the offseason. The additions of Quenton Nelson and Matt Slauson flanking Ryan Kelly has given the Colts more of an attitude up front and it’s noticeable. However, the Colts are still very much in a process with the tackle position. Normally, this wouldn’t be too big of a deal as Anthony Castonzo has been the pillar of health for the Colts at left tackle. His durability is now going to be tested after he re-aggravated the hamstring issue that had him on the PUP list to begin with. It doesn’t look as though he’s expected to miss any time into the regular season and Frank Reich believes that he’s likely to get some snaps in the preseason, but doesn’t feel it’s the end of the world if he has to wait until the regular season opener. In the meantime the Colts are working in several other linemen to see who might be able to be an immediate backup to Castonzo, but also to see who is actually going to hold down the right tackle position this year.We expected Austin Howard to get the nod coming in after the Colts signed him for that very reason in the offsesaon, but he’s not getting the starting snaps at the moment. Thursday newly acquired tackle J’Marcus Webb ran with the ones and Joe Haeg started at left tackle.Webb has been getting them in practice too, but in order to have the competition, each player within that battle have to get snaps to see what they can do. Week 2 of the preseasoncould bring a new set of starters at the bookends to evaluate in a game-like situation.Reich stated Saturday that they like what Howard brings, but it’s a competition that’s playing out right now. This is Indianapolis Colts Hats , both, concerning and refreshing to hear. We want the guys they bring in to work out, but even they aren’t just going to hand the position over to someone they brought in to do so.In camp we’ve seen rookie guard Braden Smith get into the mix at right tackle, though he didn’t look great in the first several days of that experiment. Denzelle Good has been out, and would be in the thick of this competition if he were healthy. Smith is getting moved around quite a bit despite his past struggles taking on the pass rushers in practice and the coaching staff is taking another stab at it.Smith got some reps at right tackle in the Colts first preseason game, and now even Le’Raven Clark has gotten some starter reps along with Smith today in practice.It’s good to see the work being done to get the best available tackles the snaps they need. But come Week 1, we really need Castonzo to be healthy if we have any hopes for this line to take the next step. We should also hope for Good to get back to the practice field very soon in order for the competition to be complete.The Colts depth along the offensive line was one of the most important issues being corrected from years previous, and even though a couple options are dinged up the improvement is still evident.Nevertheless, Castonzo’s durability in past years was crucial in putting a respectable line on the field, and even that didn’t always happen. Now that he’s being sidelined for a bit, the line needs him more than ever in order to become a strength on this team. This, folks, we believe is possible for the first time in forever.
