Colts LB Darius Leonard’s 31-word outburst after disappointing 0-3 start
Following their 25-16 loss to the Titans, Leonard went on an expletive-laden rant about the Colts’ ugly start to the 2021 campaign. Before the defeat at the hands of Tennessee, the Colts lost to the Seattle Seahawks (28-16) and Los Angeles Rams (27-24).
“This s*** sucks. This s*** sucks. Especially being a true f****** competitor. This is a sick taste in my mouth. You talk about 1-0, 1-0, but damn, we gotta get 1-0,” Leonard told reporters after their latest defeat, per Zak Keefer of The Athletic.
For what it’s worth, Darius Leonard and the Colts have no one to blame but themselves for the three-game losing skid. The defense has been bad since Week 1, and Leonard knows very well he should be the anchor of the team defensively if they want to succeed.
The 26-year-old did record one interception against the Titans, but the defense still looked out of sorts for the most part and made it hard for the offense to get things going.

It remains to be seen if the Colts can bounce back from their string of losses and get their first win of the season. However, there is no doubt they need Leonard to be at his absolute best to do that. Next up for Indianapolis is the Miami Dolphins at Hard Rock Stadium.
