Rick Venturi Dissects the Colts New Look Offense with Brissett as QB, Defensive Woes, and the Special Teams Disaster in LA


Rick Venturi joined JMV to discuss the Colts week 1 loss to the Los Angeles Chargers. Venturi broke down the offense with Brissett as QB1, how Reich adjusted the gameplan to fit Brissett's skillset, the defense getting gashed in the run game and if there is a concern with Darius Leonard's weight, and of course a nightmare game from Adam Vinatieri and what the Colts should do at kicker moving forward.

 

JMV: "Do you think there is more issues than just Vinatieri having a bad game and he'll be ok because he's the GOAT. Do you think I'm overreacting or do you agree?"

 

Rick Venturi: "No I don't think you're overreacting and I hate that it's coming out of my mouth but I go back from 2014-2018 there's been a slow decline in numbers. In other words he was 98% in 2014 and he's down to 85% last year, a 11% drop. We saw things and maybe it's injuries, maybe it's more than we know but  we saw things in 2018 and now 2019 that we couldn't believe...He said it (Vinatieri) that if it was just a normal guy he would be gone. I have too much belief in the guy that he will somehow fix it but to not be concerned at this stage is to not look at the facts."
