New Saints tight end Coby Fleener spent four seasons with the Colts. The first three were relatively successful, with playoff appearances capping each campaign. His last year was a major disappointment.
Now gone from Indianapolis, Fleener has spoken out about the season that was, with some candid insights about some of his teammates.
“I think it is one of those situations where it really reveals character,” Fleener told reporters during a conference call, via quotes distributed by the team. “The guys that kept fighting through it, knowing that we may not have our star quarterback on the field, but we still have a chance to win this game — those are the guys that you want in your corner. The other guys, it becomes pretty apparent that they are along for the ride.”
Fleener didn’t specify who was or wasn’t along for the ride. The reality is that, even without Andrew Luck and with the constant distraction of the head coach’s status, the Colts still nearly won the division.
