Sound the alarm: Colts QB Matt Ryan benched for Sam Ehlinger

October 26, 2022

After just seven games it appears the Matt Ryan experiment is over in Indianapolis following a lackluster 3-3-1 start headlined by the NFL's third-lowest scoring offense. On Monday, Colts Head Coach Frank Reich dropped the bombshell during his weekly zoom call, leaving second-year quarterback Sam Ehlinger at the controls of the Colts offense going forward. Reich shared that the team's plan is make Ehlinger the starting quarterback for the remainder of the season with Ryan's role going forward still to be determined. Was this the right time to make the seismic shift under center? Should the Colts have played this hand slightly differently, leaving the door open for a Ryan return if Ehlinger struggles out of the gate? And most importantly, where does this leave a locker room filled with talent and postseason expectations? All Indiana Bets Petar Hood rejoins the pod to discuss a wild start to Week 8 in Indianapolis.
