The Indianapolis Colts had a great season last year, and they’ll be looking to build on that next year. They need to answer these questions first though.

The Indianapolis Colts overachieved their goals last season when they made it into the second round of the NFL playoffs. This year, they’ll be looking to build on that success. They’ve made a number of good additions this offseason, but they are far from a complete team in terms of having answers at every spot on the roster. The offensive line and quarterback spots are set, but you could make an argument that just about every other position group has some issues.

Andrew Luck is in the prime of his career at age 29. They need to capitalize on the generational talent that he is by giving him the opportunity to compete for championships. Their window of contention is going to grow slightly over the next couple of years, but, with a roster that’s still affordable, this is when they need to be preparing to strike. He’ll need some help to get that done though.

Head coach Frank Reich had a great first season at the helm, and he’ll be looking to advance the offense more in Year 2. Defensive Coordinator Matt Eberflus helped the team overachieve compared to expectations last year. He needs to keep the team trending upward because the defense isn’t loaded with the talent that other teams possess.

For both sides to make that happen, they must answer these questions.
