Indianapolis’s 2022 season has been disappointing and a disaster. The Colts are currently 4-17-1 and fans need some positivity. Indy has had many players who made big plays at Lucas Oil Stadium. Too many players to count. I have decided to highlight the Colt’s top offensive players. In this article, I provide five players who helped the Colts win games and created countless memories for fans. These players gave it their all on the gridiron and did a hell of a job representing the horseshoe. Read and enjoy, please.
Peyton Manning was a star and a general in Indianapolis. Colt’s fans were blessed to see Manning in action. Manning had a tough start to his career but helped the Colts win a lot of games. Manning won 141 games as a starter and helped the Colts win a Superbowl in 2006. Manning passed for 54,828 yards and threw 399 touchdowns during his career in Indy. Manning was one of the best quarterbacks in the NFL and had complete command of Indy’s offense.
Indianapolis has been blessed with great running backs. Marshall Faulk, Eric Dickerson, and Joseph Addai are some of the more decorated backs. In my opinion, Edgerrin James was the best running back. James provided a burst to an explosive offense. James’ elusiveness helped him evade defenders and produce explosive runs on the gridiron. James rushed for over 9,000 yards and scored 72 touchdowns with Indy. James also scored 11 receiving touchdowns. Edgerrin James was inducted into the Hall of Fame in 2020.
In the past, Indianapolis was known for its explosive offense. Marvin Harrison played a significant role in Indianapolis’s offense. Harrison was a reliable target for Peyton Manning. Harrison recorded 14,580 receiving yards and scored 128 touchdowns. Colts fans enjoyed watching Harrison play. Harrison’s highlights are incredible. Harrison was inducted into the Hall of Fame in 2016.
The Colts were blessed with great wide receivers. Reggie Wayne was a dominant wide receiver who learned a lot from Marvin Harrison. Wayne recorded 14,345 receiving yards and scored 82 touchdowns. Reggie Wayne and Peyton Manning had excellent chemistry and formed one of the best quarterback-wide receiver duos in the NFL. Wayne made significant plays for the horseshoe. Wayne is currently the wide receivers coach for the Indianapolis Colts.
Andrew Luck was the man in Indianapolis before he retired. Luck’s intelligence helped him become one of the best quarterbacks in Colt’s history. Luck knew the ins and out of the offense and defensive coverages. Luck used his intelligence to make significant plays. Andrew Luck passed for 23,671 yards and threw 171 touchdowns. Coaches and teammates loved Andrew Luck and followed his lead on the gridiron. Luck last played in 2018 and had a good season with former head coach Frank Reich.
I didn’t include TY Hilton because I already listed two wide receivers. I wanted to have a balanced list of offensive players.
