It’s no secret to anyone who has watched the NFL this season that the Indianapolis Colts have had one of the worst offenses in the NFL, ranking just No. 30 out of 32 teams in scoring offense this season. The team tried to remedy the problem by making a quarterback switch, benching veteran quarterback Matt Ryan in favor of second-year quarterback Sam Ehlinger. But after the problems persisted during Sunday’s loss to the Washington Commanders, the team made an even bigger change, firing offensive coordinator Marcus Brady.

The Colts announced the decision to relieve Brady of his duties on Tuesday with a statement from head coach Frank Reich, who called it an “incredibly hard decision.”

Brady had been part of the Colts coaching staff since 2018 when he joined the staff as assistant quarterbacks coach He also served as the team’s quarterbacks coach from 2019-2020 before taking over as offensive coordinator in 2021.

It’s a massive move for the Indianapolis Colts as they try to keep pace in the AFC South, and the NFL world had plenty to say about it on Twitter.

It’s worth noting that even though the Colts are firing Brady, Reich actually calls the plays for the team anyway, so this might not make a huge difference.
