Frank Reich finds himself with his seventh starting QB in only his fifth season as Indianapolis’ coach. Benching a former MVP is tough, but convincing your team that it is the right move, might be tougher.
Colts coach Frank Reich has named Sam Ehlinger the starting quarterback for the rest of the season, but he’s going to be under a lot of pressure — figuratively and literally — vs. the Commanders in Week 8.
With Matt Ryan out and Sam Ehlinger in, the Indianapolis Colts have hoisted the white flag, according to Trey Wingo.
On Monday, Frank Reich confirmed that Sam Ehlinger will be the new man under center for the Colts the rest of the season, taking over for an injured Matt Ryan. Chase Daniel worked with Ehlinger this offseason, and he knows what the sophomore QB will bring to the table.
Charles Davis, Wade Phillips and former Colts head coach Chuck Pagano discuss Frank Reich’s decision to bench Matt Ryan in favor of the second-year quarterback Sam Ehlinger, both the reasons behind the switch, and what the position looks like moving forward for Indy.
