Colts Vs. Dolphins Game Day Thread

714 posts in this topic

Hi, Colts fans! Our Colts will try to win their fifth game in 2012, as they host the Dolphins in the battle of 4-3 teams, as the Colts keep pace with the Texans for second place in the AFC North Division. Today's game could also have been a battle of rookie quarterbacks, the Colts Andrew Luck opposite the Dolphins Ryan Tannehill, but Tannehill is still probable because of his left knee injury he suffered last week at the New York Jets.

Dolphins unfortunately leads the all-time regular season series over the Colts 46 games to 24, including two playoff games. Colts and Dolphins started their rivalry when the Baltimore Colts defeated and shutout the Miami Dolphins 35-0 in the first season of the AFL- NFL merger at the Orange Bowl in Miami back on November 1, 1970.

Indianapolis though has won the last three regular season games led by a healthy Peyton Manning. Colts defeated the Dolphins 23-17 at the Sun Life Stadium back on November 2, 2003, winning 27-22 at the season finale back on December 31, 2006, and winning the most recent meeting at Sun Life Stadium at the Miami Gardens, by the score of 27-23 on Monday Night, September 21, 2009.

Colt's scoring highlights from that 2009 game included Peyton Manning passing for an 80-yard TD pass to Dallas Clark in the first quarter, Adam Vineteiri's two field goals from 43 yards and 48 yards in the second quarter, and his three PAT's, Donald Brown's 15-yard TD run, and Manning's 48-yard TD pass to Pierre Garcon in the fourth quarter to secure the Colts victory.

Kevin Harlan and former Bengal defensive back Solomon Wilcotts are announcing the live game TV commentary, seen regionally on The NFL On CBS, and in Indianapolis on WISH CBS 8 on HD.

Bob Lamey. our 'Voice Of The Colts.' announces the live game radio play-by-play, along with game analyst Will Wolford, and sideline reporter Kevin Lee, simulcasted on flagship stations WFNI ESPN SportsRadio 1070AM, and WLHK Country 97.1, and the Colts/Vectren Radio Network.

LOS's retractable roof may be closed for this afternoon's 1:05PM Eastern Standard Time kickoff, because clear and partly cloudy skies at 47 degrees, with a wind chill of 43 degrees is forecast, along with 53% humidity, 10% precipitation, and north/northwest winds at 8 miles per hour.

Colts are wearing their blue jerseys and white pants on the field at LOS this afternoon, , while the visiting Dolphins will wear their white jerseys, and aqua pants.

No injuries to both teams as Indianapolis attempts to improve their record to 5-3, and GO COLTS!!! :cheer::D:blueshoe::helmet::coltslogo::coltshorse::coltsfb::colts::coltslogo::1colts::jump::excited::cheer:

Those watching Sunday Ticket will find the game on Channel 711.

Hopefully all will be able to see it. As I recall it was blacked out for MystryMaster (sp) last week.

My bad! Big Time! Forget my '4-4' in the opening thread! Hopefully the Colts improve from 4-3, to be 5-3 if they beat the Fins! Didn't see closely. Sorry, folks!

Unfortunate series of events there. We should have gone for a hard count on 3rd down. But that's ok, lots of football left!

    • Someone already said this, but I'd like to co-sign... that's not 42 hits, it's 42 pressures. And pressures is a somewhat subjective metric. I haven't charted it, but I think 42 is a bit high.   Other things to consider: Did you know that, before Sunday, the Colts hadn't run a single offensive play with the lead? They've been playing from behind a lot, which means more obvious passing situations (almost the entire second half of the opener, for instance), which means more aggressive pass rush.   Also, Luck takes more time to throw than almost every QB in the league, and his average depth of target is deeper than any QB in the league. If QB1 is generally quicker to throw and attempts shorter passes than QB2, you can probably count on QB1 facing a lower rate of pressure than QB2.   This is why, especially with offensive line play, there's no adequate substitute for actually watching the games. Even better is watching other teams play, so you can get good context. The Colts protection hasn't been great, but it's definitely improved. Reitz has been leaky at RT, whether it's due to injury or him just not having it, but he either needs to sit out or get it together, because he's the weak link right now. AC has had troubles, too, but he was better Sunday, and will be fine. There are injury issues at RG, but between Good and Haeg, assuming they get and stay healthy, I think RG will be okay. (I definitely don't want to see anymore snaps of Blythe at RG...)
    • The post was in response to the OP, who basically asked 'what's the worst that could happen?' Yeah, there's lots that can happen, which is the answer whenever someone questions a conservative decision.    The real question is about risk/reward, which is how basically any binary decision should be graded. The risk is something catastrophic happening, and the chances of that were considerable, given the fact that the protection was leaky all day, Luck had given up a sack/fumble/TD at the end of the first half, and he'd thrown a pick earlier in the second quarter. Lots could go wrong.   The reward would be a first down, or even a TD. But on that drive, the offense was a mess, the calls were going against the Colts, and you could assume that any well coached team would be very passive in coverage to avoid a cheap defensive holding penalty for a five yard automatic first down. You never know, but you're playing the odds, and the odds weren't in the Colts favor on that drive.   Besides all that, it's early in the 4th quarter, you have a tight game, you're at home, the defense is actually playing pretty well, especially in the red zone, and your offense has been moving the ball effectively when they avoid big mistakes. The smart play is to flip the field, rely on your defense, and let the offense get the ball back with a chance to deliver the lead. And that was the eventual outcome.   The sequence almost worked out for the Colts, by the way. The Chargers muffed the punt and the Colts almost recovered.    I know fans always want to see the team go 'pedal to the metal,' but the Colts did the smart thing there. (Fans in LOS were even booing when the Colts kneeled it out at the end of the first half, which is a ridiculous response, IMO.) 
    • I bet we can thank one Mr. Hilton for that, just as we thanked Reggie for TY's growth and Marvin for Reggie's growth.  It's a long great tradition here....
    • ???   You could punt on 2nd and 40 from your own 21 yard line, or you could punt on 4th and 24 from your own 37 yard line. How is one not better than the other?
