Indianapolis Colts wide receiver T.Y. Hilton was fed up after their 27-0 Week 7 loss to the Jacksonville Jaguars.
It was the first time the Colts were shut out at home since 1993, according to WISH-TV’s Charlie Clifford.
The Colts were dominated on both sides of the ball the entire afternoon, and after the game Hilton fed up. He was asked after the game what the wide receivers can do to make Sunday’s easier for quarterback Jacoby Brissett.
“As far as receiving, nothing can change.” Hilton said, via WISH-TV’s Charlie Clifford. “We need to take some pride up front and block. What if we put them back there to take those hits? We need to start up front. Once the o-line is back in rhythm we will be fine.”
There is a reason that Hilton was so upset. Not only were the Colts blown out by the Jaguars, but Brissett was sacked 10 times.
Also, poor play on their offensive line is one of the reasons that quarterback Andrew Luck has had a difficult time staying healthy, including an injury to his throwing shoulder that he is still recovering from.
However, even though Hilton is a respected player in that locker room, his comments will not sit well with the big guys. Comments like that, on top of losing, could mean this season could get even uglier for the 2-5 Colts.
