Under Bruce Arians, the Colts were an aggressive, down-the-field passing bunch. He frequently stressed the importance of picking up yards “in chunks.’’ QB Andrew Luck averaged 12.9 yards per attempt, one of the top averages in the league.
New OC Pep Hamilton ran a the West Coast offense at Stanford, which revolves around a shorter, more efficient passing game as well as a power running attack.
“It’ll be a variation of the West Coast (with) West Coast principles,’’ Hamilton said. “The short, efficient passing game, a high completion rate.
“But I enjoy watching our guys just come off the ball, the guys up front, and trying to knock the opponent back. I’m a big believer of the power-running game and . . . I think that ultimately opens up your passing game, the play-action passes.’’

"We're too young to rest," the veteran receiver said. "We probably need to put everybody out there and have them continue to play. I don't think we can afford (to rest).
"I can't speak for everybody, but I'm built to play."
While Wayne is set to play, that may not be what the team decides. The Colts are locked into the number-five seed in the AFC so there's a pretty good chance someone like Wayne may not see a full work day. We should know more as the week goes on.
