"We are going to be pretty big up front," said Goodwin, who spent the past five years with the Pittsburgh Steelers, where he worked under new Colts offensive coordinator Bruce Arians. "I think we have the type of players to do the same stuff we did with coach Arians at Pittsburgh, the inside power game and stuff like that."
How that translates to third-down conversions as well as to the sack rate remains to be seen, but for all of those hoping to see gigantic offensive lineman it is a sign for hope.
Except that they didn't get bigger. Justice, McGlynn & Satele are only 10 lbs bigger (and 1 inch shorter) than Linkenbach, Diem, & Saturday. The big difference in size will be if Ijalana & Reitz play guard, but they were already on the roster.
This is a false narrative that people are constructing to suggest that the Colts are going to be "more physical" which is also to insinuate that they weren't "physical" before.
@kasey_junk Good point...if they play. Ijalana only got 4 games in so he's essentially a rookie in that regard.
I'm with you--I think the prior group of offensive linemen were physical. They just played quick so they were labeled as "finesse." They were never given credit for the job they did in 2011 with the run game--markedly better in many ways.
