Default Colts’ High-Powered Offense Looks to Improve in 2004


Colts.com (click for full story)

Quote:
--- An improved offensive line. The unit lost reserve tackle/guard Adam Meadows, who was released then signed with the Carolina Panthers, but all five starters from late last season – tackle Tarik Glenn, guard Tupe Peko, Saturday, guard Rick DeMulling and tackle Ryan Diem return, along with second-year veterans Steve Sciullo and Makoa Freitas, who started 19 combined games last season.

The offensive line tied for second in the NFL last season by allowing 19 sacks, and the Colts finished with more than 100 yards a game rushing.

“You’re just getting stronger there,” Saturday said. “We were no. 1 or 2 in sacks last year, and we did well rushing the ball. All you’ve got to do is keep adding. We can’t rest on what we did last year. We’ve got to accentuate those things and get better at the things we didn’t do well.

“I’m excited to see how it’s going to turn out.”

Manning, a four-time Pro Bowl player who will enter his seventh NFL season next season, said during summer school he considered this the deepest, most talented offense in which he has played in the NFL. There are more options are receiver, he said, and the running back talent – with fullback Tom Lopienski potentially figuring in the game plan – is as potent as it has been since 1998.

“It’s another year in the system,” Manning said. “We’re adding some wrinkles. And (offensive coordinator) Tom (Moore)’s using the personnel we have to do some different things. We’ve got a fullback we can use. That’s a good wrinkle for us.

“Tom’s always been about the weapons we have, but I really feel like this year – top to bottom, at the major skill positions – we’re as deep as we ever have been.”
