The Indianapolis Colts' 2012 offense will feature many new faces (six of the 10 key offensive players are new to the team) to go along with a new offense under new head coach Chuck Pagano and new offensive coordinator Bruce Arians.
That's a lot of "new," which could make it difficult when projecting stats for the upcoming season.
On second thought, maybe it's not as difficult as it appears.
Even though the Colts have yet to play a game with all those new faces, Pagano gave some insight, according to Jeff Legwold of the Denver Post, on how he intends to play: "'[Y]ou've got to run the football and you've got to stop the run to be successful, at any level.'"
Colts fans are also familiar with Arians, as he was the Colts' quarterbacks coach from 1998 to 2000. Back are Reggie Wayne, Austin Collie, Donald Brown and Delone Carter. We've also seen the Andrew Luck-Coby Fleener connection at Stanford.
So, even with all this "new," maybe the Colts' offense isn't as unknown as it looks.
Here are my stat predictions for the Colts' 10 key offensive players.
