With several months of the offseason to digest what happened last season, Dwight Freeney joined “NFL Total Access” on Tuesday to discuss what he believes the Colts need to in order to play on their home field in Super Bowl XLVI.
“I know this, we have to get back to playing consistent football, night in and night out,” Freeney said. “Every practice we have to make sure we’re doing what we need to do. I think we were a little too inconsistent. We would have great games, and then the next game we would play bad. The next game we would play good. The year that we played real good and we ended up in the Super Bowl, we were a great road team. You knew what to expect, and we were winning those games. Last year was too up and down.”
Listening to Freeney, one would think the Colts tanked down the stretch and missed out on the postseason. Instead, they won their last four games to finish 10-6 and win the AFC South before losing at home to the Jets in the first round of the playoffs. As it should be, the bar is set high in Indy.
How much thought has Freeney given to playing a Super Bowl game at home? “Almost none,” he told Rich Eisen.
