The guys start the podcast by talking about the Chargers’ win over the Atlanta Falcons, which was very nearly a loss after a late fumble by Ekeler, and how impressed Austin was by Falcons RB Cordarrelle Patterson.
With the news that the Colts have fired head coach Frank Reich and replaced him with Jeff Saturday, who wasn’t even on the team’s coaching staff, Austin takes a time to respond and talk about how he would feel if he were in the Colts locker room.
Austin and Matt then go through the list of the top 12 running backs in fantasy football this year, and discuss the wave of young RBs that seem poised to take over the league, before opening up the Ask Austin mailbag and talking about the home crowds at Chargers games, the challenge of defending a rushing QB and much more.
