Colts giving players written tests on offense

Colts offensive coordinator Nick Sirianni is giving his players written tests on route-running and other aspects of the playbook, Matthew VanTryon of the Indianapolis Star reports. It goes back to his education background.

“What I feel like it does is it forces them to study," the first-year coordinator told reporters. "It forces them to study maybe a little bit more than they would on their own because they’re prideful guys that want to be right and they want to look good in front of their peers. That’s why they are in the positions that they are in. So I’ve done that for a little bit and I always felt like it has worked pretty well so I continued it here.”

In fact, the competition it fuels is one of the main reasons Sirianni does it -- in addition to making sure the players are up to speed.

“It’s a normal grading scale. There is no curve," he said. "It’s all about not only getting them to learn the offense, but also to compete with each other. The constant competition – they’re fighting for jobs so the constant competition amongst each other is just another way for them to compete also.”
