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 believe Thadius Young will make an impact also as well as a healthy Jefferson
    • Yeah, that is good to see that Josh finally saw the light & while I agree with Jvan that Gordon knew in all likelihood he was about to fail his next drug test, an addict has to hit rock bottom on their own timetable. The realization light doesn't happen during an NFL suspension window alone, but when the addict knows it's time to seek professional help.    I always wonder why franchises release statement of support & then cut their caboose. It's like a husband celebrating 10 yrs together with his wife on their anniversary by banging his secretary & then handing her divorce papers before desert arrives.   Surprise! We love you so much Josh & the maturity you are showing that we want absolutely nothing to do with your life anymore. Gee thanks. 
    • I don't get this thread... What's wrong with Allen? He had a drop?    He bails out the O-Line on a regular basis. He's a pretty reliable route runner and pass catcher. Doyle is good, but you need 2, really. 
    • You're a good guy CC1 & I love your sense of humor. That's why I love this forum so many amigos are just as sarcastic as I am & smart too that goes without saying. You always have a refreshing perspective on things.    I was watching a "Modern Family" re-run on TV yesterday where the dad was more proud of a fencing trophy than his son was. He wanted to quit & not fight a female in the Championship round. The father convinced him to compete anyway & just as the dad puts the trophy in his bedroom not his son's room he says with a beaming grin on his face "guilt is temporary, but hardware lasts forever." Ba! Ha! Ha!    Moms are always from the school of just do your best son I will love you no matter what vs dads who are like win it all or you are nothing to me & the honor of the family name.    It sounds harsh, but the episode was hysterical. God, I love brilliantly deployed sarcasm. It's the best. 
  • Welcome New Members

    • Welcome here Nils!   I can tell you, most of football fans in Hungary are Patriots fans...unfortunately. 
    • Hi, Nils here....   I know a lot of Europeans support the Patriots, but all I can say is no way man, no way!   I'm not entirely sure when I started to follow and cheer for the Colts, but I has no shame in admitting that it was when Manning begun to really shine. It was probably back in 1999 because I seem to remember that play-off game against the Titans.   I also remember the I loved how the Colts would play a beautiful offensive game whereas other teams were boring with their defensive strengths. Aaaahh, those were the days!   I was introduced to American Football during my American Politics/presidential election study in Washington D.C. in the fall of 1996 (Clinton vs Dole). Didn't really get attached to any team back then, so you can say that Redskins just left me totally uninspired.   It is a great and welcoming forum here - and that is just how I remembered America too.
