The Indianapolis Colts are heading into Week 8 winners. They’ve blown out the Buffalo Bills and will now head west to play another team that has hit the skids in a major way. The 1-5 Oakland Raiders are the Colts final opponent before their bye week.
Another important day coming, October 30th, is the NFL trade deadline.
Today Matt goes into some of the names that have been tossed around as being potential trade pieces and looks at possible fits for the Colts. Most teams who are 2-5 at this point in the season are not buyers at the deadline, but could the Colts find themselves a piece that could help them get atop the AFC South at the midway point in the season?
Matt also discusses the possibility of the Colts trading away one of their players. There aren’t many, if any, that the Colts could legitimately unload who would pull any kind of value. However, they do have one that has come up a number of times. The real, and only questions are: Is there a real trade partner who would give the Colts enough to come off of him, and would the Colts bite even if they were blown away by an offer for him?
In the second half of the show, Matt takes a look at the Raiders’ Week 6 game against the Seattle Seahawks to look at possible trends of their offense and defense, and how the Colts can combat what they do schematically and with their talent.
How does Derek Carr look? Can they protect him? Where are their defensive strengths/weaknesses? Where can Rashaan Melvin be exploited? Is there any sort of running game with Marshawn Lynch on IR? We’ll touch on it all.
Because their aren’t a lot of secrets about this team right now, let’s just be honest. The Raiders are a bad team and the Colts have enough in their arsenal -- believe it or not -- to enter the bye with two impressive wins. Enjoy the show!
