Preseason, as a whole, is hopeful.
It's a time when every NFL team has limitless potential, and the team's ceiling is where the team will end up in the eyes of the fans. Every player has a shot at making the roster, and every team is even.
But if one team has to win, one team has to lose. If one player impresses in the preseason, there's another who's getting beat. For the Indianapolis Colts, optimism is high. But even with that optimism comes individuals who have disappointed.
Excluding the players who have been cut already, which players have disappointed this preseason? These are players who the Colts need strong production out of in the regular season but who have not reached that level yet in the preseason. While the preseason, in the end, is just preseason, it still has value in how we judge players.
