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!!!!!

It was a mistake providing internet access to bridges. 

Colts should have ran a fake on that last FG.  No one would have expected that with the record at stake.  Lol.

Pretty much a must win, if we can’t beat the Raiders...

    • Yes, that was my point.  If he’s on the exempt list it’s the same as if he sat out (which they seemed to want to force him to do), but now they have to pay him.  Which goes back to my point to how poorly they handled this.  The first allegation came out when deals could be finalized, which the first allegation was looked at oddly so think deal still would’ve happened.   it’s so bad right now for Watson, it’s not out of the realm he never plays again.  Each defense maneuver they do makes it worse.  They have a bunch of masseuses come out saying he was great, but that just highlights he clearly fishing for a multitude of masseuses which is suspect.  Then now saying he has consensual sexual encounters with multiple of the plaintiffs.  That again just makes him look worse (so fishing for masseuses to have sexual encounters with).  Will see what happens, but definitely not out if the realm he gets permanently sidelined.
    • It was a circus at first with all the controversial firings/dismissals caused by Easterby, starting back with Brian Gaine. Watson’s trouble with the law has shifted attention completely away from the negative PR the FO was getting. Still, under Caserio we’ve made a couple good free agent acquisitions, and things have seemingly settled down for now.     I’m not gonna pretend I know anything more about Watson’s desire to leave Houston than anyone else. Who knows what really is going on behind closed doors, but Watson apparently didn’t like the way the FO was leaving him out of consideration of major roster and personnel decisions. Who knows what things are going to look like in September. I have a strong feeling Watson won’t be under center...whether it’s only temporary or for forever is the only question in my opinion. 
    • Doesn't mean a team won't get desperate and take them high 
    • I’m basing this on the belief Wentz will be the answer at QB and we will become SB contenders. Trading a 1st and 3rd for a franchise QB is an extremely good deal.  Takes double to triple that just to move up and draft a rookie.
