Let’s jump straight into this week’s questions:

Iritejursazscript (Stampede Blue Comments): In the future do you see the Colts paying Wilkins or letting him walk, I think he has always been an unsung hero and should be fairly compensated as an above average running back.

Answer: The Colts should re-sign Jordan Wilkins in the future. He is very underrated and a very valuable running back to the Colts. He is a good back who can start in a pinch and provides excellent depth and special teams ability. Wilkins also won’t likely demand a big contract which would work well for the team. Short answer yes the Colts should re-sign Jordan Wilkins.

Clydesdale (Stampede Blue Comments): What is Rivers record in unfavourable playing conditions? I remember a stat that stuck with Manning for a long while about never winning below 40 degrees. I doubt that there are a lot of cold weather games to choose from, given him playing many games on the west coast, but he must have strolled though KC or Denver in some poor weather?

Answer: Rivers and the Chargers fared pretty well in unfavourable/cold conditions. In 13 regular season games with the Chargers where the temperature was 40 degrees or below Philip Rivers was 8-5. Rivers did win the first 6 games as a starter in games where the temperature was 40 degrees or below. In playoff games where the temperature has been 40 degrees or lower Rivers and the Chargers were 0-3. The last game was in 2018 season against the New England Patriots, however before that the other two loses were over 10 years ago with another loss to the Patriots in 2008 and one to the Steelers in 2009.
