Colts @ N.Y. Giants Preseason Game Night Thread

398 posts in this topic

Welcome back, Colts Nation!  :) Our Colts move on from their 44-20 loss to the Buffalo Bills last week as they are in the New Jersey Meadowlands to play the New York Giants in their first preseason road game at Met Life Stadium on FOX Sports.  Colts are also in the lone preseason game for the second consecutive Sunday, and also hope to go back to Met Life Stadium to play in Super Bowl XLVIII on February 2, 2014.

 

Colts concluded their training camp last Friday morning at Anderson University. Tonight's matchup feature two marquee quarterbacks, our Colts Andrew Luck opposite the N.Y. Giants Eli Manning. Colts will play the more intriging matchup later during  Week 7 of the regular season as Peyton Manning returns with the Denver Broncos in the battle of the new and old Colts QB regimes on Sunday Night, October 20.  Emphasis by the Colts coaching staff, among other team adjustments tonight, is to have the offensive line protect Luck.

 

NFL On FOX's primary broadcast team of  Joe Buck and Troy Aikman, along with sideline reporter Pam Oliver, are announcing the nationally-televised game on FOX Sports, including WXIN FOX 59 in Indianapolis, and simulcast around the world to our US military personnel on the Armed Forces Broadcast Network, live on HD. Tonight's Colts/N.Y.Giants game will also be replayed later on The NFL Network at least twice in the coming week, early Tuesday morning, at 3:00AM,  and on the following Friday afternoon at 1:00 PM, on August 23, both times Eastern Standasrd Time, and also on HD.

 

Bob Lamey, our 'Voice Of The Colts,' and former NFL QB  and Wisconsin Badger Jim Sorgi, are announcing both the live radio game play-by-play and analysis, along with sideline reporter Kevin Lee, simulcast on flagship stations WFNI ESPN SportsRadio 1070AM, and WHLK Country 97.1FM, and the Colts/Vectren Radio Network. Sorgi is also  believed to be the only NFL player to backup, and play with both Peyton and Eli Manning, while both with the Colts and N.Y. Giants.

 

Clear/Partly Cloudy skies, and few showers at 74 degrees is forecast for tonight's 7:05PM Eastern Standard Time kickoff at Met Life Stadium, along with 53% precipitation, 30% humidity, and very mild eastern winds at 5 miles per hour.

 

Colts are wearing the matching white jerseys and pants on the field tonight,  while the host N.Y. Giants are wearing their traditional  home blue jerseys, and gray pants.

 

No injuries to both the Colts and N.Y. Giants, as all the players in both teams, especially the drafted college players, signed veterans, and free agents, all audition to earn themselves into the 53-man regular season roster and practice squads. Win your first preseason game for yourselves, and for Head Coach Chuck Pagano, stay 'Colts Strong,' and GO COLTS!!!!!   :D  :blueshoe:  :pass:  :shoe:  :helmet:  :coltshelmet:  :coltslogo:  :coltshorse:  :coltsfb:  :colts:  :1colts:  :coltslogo:

I'm eager to see how the three phases will improve from last week...to be honest, I've all but abandoned hope for special teams.  Last year, we looked like we were trending upward then last week it was the same ol' stuff.  I know it was preseason week 1, but let's keep it real...our special teams have been pretty poor (outside of kicking/punting) as long as I can remember.  I think the offensive line was a little bit better with run blocking, but I wanna see how Holmes/Thornton can help us out there.  I liked out free agent additions on defense...can't wait for all the injury holdouts to be able to play.  Landry, Angerer, Bradshaw & Co.  will right the ship IMO.  Can't wait to clock out this evening and get home for the kickoff!  GO COLTS!!!!

    • I have them on dvd too.  The kid hits everything!  I didnt say he did it well.  Your original post said he didn't hit.  I just said he does, and half the time its at the end of the play and he ends up clocking a team mate. the kid is raw, but i like his measurables so i'll give it time. i wasnt suggesting he was bob sanders 2.0 in any way.  
    • It was too backloaded. They did a six year contract worth $120m, and the cap hit in the first two years only accounted for ~$20m of the total value of the contract. That means the last four years would have to account for $100m on the cap. The Ravens knew full well that they would have to extend Flacco again, and that's what they did. But now they had to give him a raise, and from 2013-16, they've paid him a total of $106m cash ($26.5m/year), and not all of that is on the cap yet... but it will be. That guy threw 20 TDs and 15 INTs this year (but at least he finally hit 4,000 yards!)    He's decidedly average, even above average. When he gets hot, he can have a four game stretch like he did in the 2012 playoffs. They didn't have much choice but to give him a big contract, but they didn't have to backload it so heavily.    I always said they should have structured it with moderate increases each year, not super low hits up front with sharp increases after Year 3. The Packers did a much more balanced contract with Rodgers, and even the Colts with Luck.
    • Jimmy Raye seems like a very smart and nice man.   However, I wonder... How much input did Raye have regarding all the lousy draft choices and free agent acquisitions made over the past three years?   Also, lets not forget, Jimmy Raye has been one of the top heads of administration during the years of dysfunction. His presence did not seem to help.
    • No way you don't contact these GM guys unless your serious if anything it makes him look bad for choosing Raye over the others
