Colts @ Raiders Game Day Thread

Recommended Posts

Hi, Colts Nation!   :default_20smile:  I felt our Indianapolis Colts played their best game so far this season, defeating the Buffalo Bills 37-5 last week which is their largest margin of victory, which I admittedly did not expect prior to that game last Sunday, and their first win since their Week 2 win over the Redskins.

 

Our 2-5 Colts also have an opportunity to win two games in a row for the first time in their 2018 NFL season, as they travel and appear in their only regular season West Coast game, and their farthest road game in mileage this year (1,942 miles), as the Colts are in the California East Bay to play the 1-5 Oakland Raiders.

 

Today's game for the record should be the first home game where the baseball infield is finally covered with grass turf to make the playing field and color more even and level.

 

Oakland been reportedly  in a disarray  of sorts this season, including their questioning and inconsistencies of play calling, player substitutions, and time management, those factors likely contributing to their current 1-5 record.  Though their travel is not directly relevent to their internal player issues, as in playing games in L.A and London before their bye week last Sunday, the Raiders questioned quarterback David Carr's leadership and commitment to the Raiders, and his relationship to Head Coach Jon Gruden.

 

Gruden himself is not validating himself leading the Raiders into a resurgenge to their 'Commitment To Excellence' since signing his annual $10 million per year contract.  Raiders also traded both Khalil Mack to the Chicago Bears before the start of the regular season, and last week traded their top receiver, Amari Cooper, to the Dallas Cowboys.

 

Colts seek to win to regular season games for the first time in 2018, since winning their last two games in the 2015 regular season,  after Andrew Luck suffered lacerated kidney and partially torn abdominal muscle prior that year.

 

Mostly cloudy skies at 65 degrees is the game forecast inside the Oakland-Alameda Coliseum for the 4:05PM Eastern Standard Time kickoff, along with 5% precipitation, 79% humidity, and western winds at 10 miles per hour.

 

NO injuries, try to win two games in a row over the lowly Raiders, and GO COLTS!!!!!

    • He’ll be remembered that way by you others who think that.   But not by others who don’t see it that way, at all. And there are plenty of people who don’t see it that way.   
    • I think you play the regulars. If guys are hurt maybe you don't push it and play them like you would if you are in the playoff mix.   I know JMV has suggested playing Chad Kelly but I probably wouldn't. I see him as the back-up at best over Brian Hoyer going forward. Maybe you want to play him to evaluate that possibility but the Colts likely have a good idea on this already.   Whether it's Jacoby or Chad Kelly I don't think either one will change how the Colts move forward at the quarterback position.   I believe Jacoby is due a signing bonus before free agency begins that will essentially lock him onto the roster for 2020. I expect the Colts to pick that up. Jacoby will be the starter again in 2020. The Colts will try and improve the receiver group and hope to be healthier next year.   They probably want to upgrade that position if the right player is available in the draft and if he is they take him and he is the backup next year to Jacoby.    There really isn't a lot of young guys not playing already. With so many injuries, especially on offense, they have to play who is healthy and don't have much of a choice who to play in some cases. 
    • You mean the TY who called out his whole offense line after Jacoby got sacked 10 times against Jacksonville in 2017?  Every now and then TY will go there....
    • Well, what I expected to see, has so far shown itself. The third option is what I expected the majority to pick. 
    • Well, I thought realistic options. My bad. I could also have included Hoyer being subbed in as the starter...because someone might consider it an option, right? True
