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 think Dawkins would be fine with pick 46 in the 2nd round.     But with pick 15 in the 1st?!?       No!     Oh, heck no!!     He's a very strong candidate to be a very solid guard,  but pick 15?     And instead of Lamp at 15 who was still available?      No!    No!    No!    
    •   Perhaps I'm misunderstanding something here,  but what does this mean?     I'm cutting and pasting......     PFF Offensive Line Rankings- Colts Ranked 25th Overall- The most interesting bit of information from this was that they felt Castonzo had a really strong year, and that our original starting 5 were far superior to ANY combination we used when we had to account for injuries.   If that implies that our OL toward the beginning of the season graded out better than our OL the last 7 games of the season did when the C/RG/RT was Kelly, Haeg and Clark,  then I'm afraid I'm going to have to call nonsense on that viewpoint.    The OL was much better down the stretch...    and the stats including both far fewer sacks of Andrew Luck and a solid running game for Gore backs that up.   So,  what am I not understanding?     Have I misunderstood something?    Can someone throw me a bone here?   What's going on?     Clearly, I'm not understanding their meaning....    
    • I think we steal Foster at 15 if he's there. The kid was a top 5 talent and the best prospect at ILB since Kuechly just a few weeks ago. There's been a lot that's if things happen but the tape has not changed.    I think we go Reddick and maybe even Harris at 15. Conley is solid but not special. 
    •   You dont think that Haeg or Good could fix those issues?
    •   I don't doubt that all of those things are true.    But I think some NFL staffs are going to see most of those issues as very correctable.     They can be coached up.   But here's what can't be coached up.    Nearly 6'4" and 220+ pounds.    4.4 speed and about 43 inches in the vertical and nearly 11 feet in the broad jump.     And I think he did well at the various shuttles.    Those numbers are freaky.    They're likely the best at the combine.     So,  while I think most teams will likely agree with your assessment,   I think some teams (less than 8 or 25%)  will see first round physical qualities and see a late 1st round pick....   somewhere between 25-32...   Odds are he gets picked in the first half of the 2nd round...   somewhere before 50.     I just wouldn't be shocked if somehow he sneaks in to the late 1st....
