The Indianapolis Colts have dumped offensive coordinator Marcus Brady.
Following a 3-4-1 start to the season and problems all over the field on the offensive side of the ball, head coach Frank Reich and general manager Chris Ballard have decided it’s time for the team to go a different direction.
Brady had been with the Colts since 2018 and took over as the OC in 2021.
Given the heat surrounding Reich and the Colts, it’s not surprising a change was made. Something had to happen.
In eight games this season, the Colts scored more than 20 points once. Indy is averaging just 16.1 points a game.
It’s incredibly hard to win in the NFL averaging two touchdowns a game, and that’s why Marcus Brady no longer has a job. That’s not going to get you far.
The team is also averaging just 251.6 yards a game passing and has a total of nine passing touchdowns. Throwing barely more than a touchdown a game is a recipe for disaster in the NFL in 2022. The fact Jonathan Taylor hasn’t been healthy doesn’t help, but that alone can’t be an excuse.
The NFL is a simple league. You either win or you get fired. With the Colts sitting at 3-4-1 and struggling on offense, Marcus Brady is gone. It’s just the nature of the beast.
