Tonight!

So what do you guys think? Are we walking away with a win? Of course I hope so, and I think we can. What do you all see as the primary challenges of tonights game? No MJD, so that is good. What else do the Jags have? I am anticipating a first half lead, but we'll have to see how it goes.

Colts will win for the following "sicentific" reason:

Last season Colts won against Titans (our first win that season), the first (and only) game that was televised in Hungary last season. This season this is the first televised Colts game. So we will win!

I hope...

So, you guys so far seem pretty confident we'll win(I feel this way too). How about this, do you think we will see a bunch of run yards in the 2nd half? I am hoping so, assuming a lead, and maintaining it with the run. Just wondered what some of you stat pros know about the matchups.

Mr. Nate Dunleavy has us losing by 17 according to his bleacher report story. says we do not have an offense to make up the points our defense is going to give up. and that we will lose 31-17 in jacksonville. :facepalm:

i say the colts win 27-17

Luck 300+ yards 3 TD's 1 INT

heck no, BA is going to stick with what works in the first half, and Luck could possibly go for another 400 yards (he wont though). ima say about 350 yards in the air. only in the 4th qtr they will run alot to run clock

This should be a Win for us. Jags saying they will "Air It Out" with the Average Gabbster, I don't see that Happening. This is the Worst Passing Offense in the League (According to NFL.com) so I doubt that plan will work against the 18th Ranked Defense.

And then our Offense is Ranked 4th vs a 27th Ranked D, I think we got this one

Hmmm...Diffensively we are crippled...Mathis out, our starting CBs are out...

I sense some uneasiness in Force. I hope Luck will bring some balance!

Still I hold what I've said earkier here...and (L)luck-facktor is with us too.

Mathis will be a Game-Time Decision. It's not official he's out. He made the trip to JAX. Only people who didn't make the Trip were Davis, Powers, & Fleener.

Everyone else on the Injury Report made the Trip.

We need Mathis nd Freeney in D-line. Our CBs are down...not a good news...Mathis has got to play! We have to rush the passer.

I'm sure Manusky is aware of that. I have faith in the Team to get this W tonight. One way or Another

While I do agree with you to a point. I do believe we should start getting leads in the first half and running in the 2nd half (at least I would like to see that). It is our next big step forward I think. Who is "Gabbster" gonna throw the ball to? Do they have anybody? One other point, our team has done well with the "next man up" and aren't some of these corners the same corners people wanted to replace Powers with? I think we have the depth to hold down the fort at our injured positions against this Jags team. Maybe not the case against some stronger teams, but this Jags team is not very good. I'll bet we see Mathis on the field in some form or another as well. I dunno? We'll see. I'm very hopeful for a win.

I am not confident in a win tonight, and I am the most optimistic Colt Fan there is. I really feel that all phases of the game need to be SPOT ON. Jacksonville always gives us fits. MJD or not, beware of Rashad Jennings......the infamous delayed draw....a Colt Killer.

Special teams: Zibs did well returning kicks last week. Pat McAfee's kickoffs were 9 yards deep almost every time, but what else happened? Pat Lucked out on a penalty when he decided to out kick the coverage....(Net Pat Net)....pin them deep. AV is NOT automatic.....special teams are still a major concern, and are more thin with injuries taking a toll.

As to the running question ericnan, 2nd half is critical to wear them down. Shipley at center. Watch him 'actively' look to hit someone. This guy wants contact on every play. I laughed last week when he whiffed on his first block.....looked at Reitz.....who went the wrong way....chemistry fellas :) (See I hope Satele rests his back)

OK.....Colts win....but it is another TUMS moment.....Luck will have at least 1 running TD at the goal line....Go :coltsfb: :coltsfb: :colts: :colts: :pass:

The Jags will be a tough game.

I expect this game to be like the first half of the Dolphins game, a back and forth affair of both QBs. Especially with the injuries to our DBs.

Don't sleep on the Jags!

If mathis is out with the starting CB's already out, I would expect more elaborate pass rushes at times. Also think we make gabbert beat us and stack the box against Jennings.

I'm not expecting any easy games this year. We have too inexperienced a team on offense to expect great consistency on that side of the ball. However, I hope the Colts prove me wrong tonight and romp!

Love your avatar. Layne Staley and Alice in Chains are among my all time favs. I saw Alice a couple years ago with the new singer, and it was a good show.

    • Scouting notes -- Pitt WR, Tyler Boyd
      Nice receiver with good college production as the primary weapon for a limited QB. Had a DUI last offseason when he was only 20 years old, received a year of probation as a first time offender. Reports have said that he had a BAC lower than .08, but because he was underage, he was charged anyway. Obviously a series of bad decisions led to the incident, but it doesn't seem like a major issue. He was suspended one game in 2015.    http://draftbreakdown.com/players/tyler-boyd/ http://www.sports-reference.com/cfb/players/tyler-boyd-1.html   Size: Listed at about 6'2", 200 pounds. Kind of thin, but has a good frame that can easily support a little more muscle. Long arms and big hands. 3/5   Athleticism: Not impressive athletically. Doesn't have elite top end speed, isn't particularly quick in short area. Has some quickness, and definitely has good feet, which help him to shake defenders and create separation at times, and he comes out of his breaks cleanly and with good burst. There's a little bit of a 6th gear at times when he has the ball and room to run, but he's not a burner and rarely runs away from defenders. Good change of direction, good balance. Not a great leaper. 6/10, he has quick twitch characteristics   Hands: Strong hands, good catching ability, extends hands away from body to increase his catch radius in all directions, goes down to get low passes, and can snatch it out of the air, whether it's above him, behind him, whatever. Not consistent catching the ball when contested, and sometimes loses on plays that he should win because of a lack of aggression. 8/10   Routes: Good technical ability running routes, setting up defenders, getting off the line cleanly, positioning himself in short yardage situations, etc. Works zones well, seems to understand how to beat all different coverages. Good feet, patient route runner, keeps hands working in concert with legs, gives QB a clean target on slant routes. Has a feel for the ball when it's in the air, stacks defenders on go routes. Lines up all over the field and runs routes both ways, breaks well to the sideline and on comebacks and quick stop routes; defenders seem to respect him as a deep threat, so maybe I'm missing something on his speed. Either way, he's a smooth and polished route runner who will pick up more tricks with NFL coaching. 9/10 (Gif machine isn't working, so go to his Iowa cut-up and go to the 5:46 point and watch him take a defender apart.)   Physicality: Not very physical, either at the line of scrimmage or when the ball is in the air. Seems bothered by hands-y and aggressive DBs, especially if he doesn't beat them initially. Does a good job of maintaining position when the ball is in the air, but can let defenders come through him and ride him off the spot or out of bounds. Decent blocking ability, shows some violent hands at times, but not a road grader or even necessarily that competitive in blocking situations. I'd consider him a finesse player. Has the potential to be much more, given his size and frame. 5/10   Body control / adjustment ability: Always seems to be in control of his body, feet, hands, arms, hips. Patient runner, with and without the ball, keeps his feet under him, changes direction decisively and with burst, but not wildly. Positions well, keeps a good distance away from the sideline to give the QB room to throw it outside, didn't play with good QBs but seems like he'd be a great stop fade receiver. Shows ability to adjust well to the ball, comes back for underthrows, gets low to pluck the ball, can reach behind him to make acrobatic catches. Moderate beef is that he shows some passiveness on comeback plays rather than going to get the ball, sometimes allowing the defender to make a play that he's in better position for. 7.5/10   Elusiveness: Kind of covered already, but he has moves to make defenders miss and get separation from coverage. Not necessarily explosive, but has some wiggle. 6/10   Run blocking: Also covered in physicality, kind of underwhelming for his size, takes bad angles at times and sometimes takes plays off. Has the size and ability, just doesn't seem that dedicated. He's a high usage player, so he might be preserving energy or protecting himself. 2/5   Overall: 47.5/70, 68%, 2nd/3rd rounder, potential to move higher if he runs well at the Combine   Scheme fit: 5/5, no issues, could play inside and outside, and has some kick/punt return experience   Polished, experienced, technically sound player with proven production who has some upside as a technician, and if he's faster than I think he is then he can be a big time weapon in the NFL. Reminds me of a slightly smaller and less aggressive Jordan Matthews, of whom I was a big fan two years ago. Boyd doesn't have elite physical traits, but he can play right away for a team needing receiver help. He's not a first rounder, IMO, so I don't think his DUI is a major factor, but teams will obviously check him out. He's been a model citizen otherwise, from what I can see. I think he'll be a top 75 selection, maybe a top 50 selection.
    • Peyton Manning sex assault allegations
      This woman was paid on two different occasions on this matter. Once from the University for $300,000. and  another time from the Manning's. While this is only my opinion it is what it is. I think this lady took this as an opportunity to get some money not only once, but twice. I think if she were truly offended that money wouldn't have made her shut up and go away. $300,000. was a lot of money 22 years ago and what the Manning's paid was undisclosed. It was more than likely a pretty good sum I would think if the university forked out the $300,000. Funny how a lot of money changes on the severity of being offended.

      If we're talking about a CONTEST, as in more than one great performance (an actual competition), than tonight takes the cake. 
    • Peyton Manning sex assault allegations
      Ah, this again.   Fortunately this incedent was vetted with great detail over a decade ago.  The conclusion back then was that he had acted foolishly, not that he was a raving lunatic.
