Should the Colts Make Moves Before the Trade Deadline?

On the impact of losing Kemoko Turay...

“It's a big deal and there are a couple ways to look at it.  First, it puts more pressure on the rookie Ben Banogu because out of the rest of the rookies, he has played the least.  Of the guys that were second, third, fourth round picks, he has had the least impact on the team. Now his buffer zone has ended and he's going to be asked to do a little bit more. The fact that Jabaal Sheard is back is a huge deal. Now Banogu has to fill Turays place, who was a third down specialist, who gets 20 to 30 snaps.”

 

On possibilities of trades...

“Even though they are big about building from within, they are also big on winning games. If the defense had played Kansas City the way we thought they were going to, not the way they actually did, then maybe this would be a much busier bye week.  I'm sure that is something he's looking into. You might not make a lot of trades, but you’re going to have a lot of conversations about trades.”

 

On Jacoby Brissett...

“He is Solid.  And that's exactly what is needed.  I don’t think he's going make as spectacular of plays as Andrew Luck did but the team is so much better around him on both sides of the ball.  He needs to avoid making plays like he did at the end of the Raiders game. He has three picks, I had labeled two of them as bad ones, so far on the year.   Has tremendous at escaping the pocket and shaking the first tackler. I heard someone say he has the ability to make a defender miss or make a throw with a defender on him is very much like Ben Roethlisberger.”
