Early Tuesday morning, the Colts parted ways with their offensive coordinator, Marcus Brady. Brady had been with the team since 2018 and took over coordinator duties in 2021 — a season that saw Jonathan Taylor emerge as one of the best running backs in the league.

This season, however, has proven to be a different story.

Standing 3-4-1 at the midway mark, having scored the 29th-most points in the NFL, Brady became the sacrificial offering of the organization to prove to the fanbase that change is on the way.

The Colts not only had playoff aspirations for 2022 but saw themselves in a tier alongside the Bills and Chiefs, competing for a Super Bowl behind a smash-mouth offense and a bruising defense. Another year of missed opportunities could see fans looking for head coach Frank Reich and general manager Chris Ballard to join Marcus Brady along the unemployment line.
