Dan Orlovsky joins The Ride with JMV to discuss Colts season expectations. Dan is of the belief that fans should expect the Colts to be in the AFC championship game. JMV asks Dan how he feels about Andrew Luck being out of practice for his calf and how that could effect the season. Dan also gives his opinion on where Devin Funchess fits in with this Colts' offense and whether or not he will be an immediate impact.

"Where do you think this team sits as far as the AFC going into 2019?"

"Absolutely on the short list of teams expected to be contenders in the AFC championship game. The unique thing about the NFL this year is that there is one division that you can point to that doesn't have two legitimate division winners. At least a team that you would contend to be division winners and then teams that you would expect to be really good in the playoffs. That's the AFC East. Every other division is really good. You know the Colts obviously hit their stride last year and I would argue had one of the better drafts this season. Rock Ya-Sin is such a good draft pick. A lot of people probably don't know much about him but he was probably the second best corner in college football last year. They are a loaded team that is at their best with their offensive line and their defensive line and obviously their quarterback. They have their pieces and are expected to be in the AFC title game."

"What are your thoughts on Andrew Luck and the calf strain that has dogged him for basically three months?"

"I have zero concern on it. I don't even have five percent concern it's a zero for me. If anything we have seen that Andrew is very aware of his own body and the staff is very aware of letting him control that and listening to him. We've done such a good job as a sports culture at understanding injuries now a days. We saw the benefit of them being incredibly patient last year with his shoulder. If Andrew Luck was out at practice today and playing in team drills nobody would care. There is a long time before he has to play a football game and the worst thing they can do is rush him out there. I understand their caution and don't expect to see him on the field for another week or so."
