Colts @ Bills Preseason Game Night Thread

235 posts in this topic

Welcome back, Colts fans!  :)  Field conditions certainly should not be an issue tonight as our Indianapolis Colts are in Orchard Park in Western New York state to play the Buffalo Bills in their scheduled second preseason game, but the first real preseason game where all the players and coaches should see and play in game action tonight.  

 

Though the Colts were prepared to be game ready last Sunday Night to play in the annual Pro Football Hall Of Fame Game last Sunday Night in Canton, Ohio, both the Colts and Packers fortunately by  the priority and concern of player safety, did not play the actual HOF game because of the field conditions at Canton.  Perhaps  the extra week may be a blessing in disguise, as all the players, should be more rested, even anxious, to showcase their talents to the coaches and fans, as they start to earn themselves into the 53-man team roster for the upcoming 16-game regular season.

 

Retaining both General Manager Ryan Grigson, and Head Coach Chuck Pagano was pivotal and the key factors in the off-season to continue rebuilding and staffing the players for the Colts 2016 team that will try to regain and earn back the AFC South Division title.  Colts finished their 2015 NFL season with an 8-8 record, but with a second place finish in the AFC South, and out of the NFL postseason.

 

Veteran QB Andrew Luck should be healthy to play  this year, but h, like the rest of the first-string and starting players, are expected to play in limited offensive and defensive series during the preseason, and likely to play most of their game action when the games really count and matter during the Colts 2016 NFL regular season.

 

Indianapolis though finished their 2015 NFL Preseason with a 1-3 record, their only win a 24-14 road win at the St. Louis Rams back on August 29.

 

Both Indianapolis and Buffalo played their recent  preseason game and meeting at Lucas Oil Stadium (the building), where the visiting Bills spolied the Colts preseason opener by winning 44-24 back on August 11, 2013.  Buffalo Bills though played their last 'home' game with Indianapolis at a neutral site, winning 34-21 at the Rogers Centre in Toronto, Ontario, Canada, played on August 19, 2010.

 

Colts 2016 NFL Draft Class are expected to play in their first NFL game in Buffalo tonight, featuring and including Center Ryan Kelly from Alabama, T.J.Green, Le'Raven Clark, Hassan Ridgeway, Antonio Morrision, Joe Haeg, Trevor Bates,  and Austin Blythe.

 

Veteran Colts players who resigned to play this year in the past 2016 NFL off-season includes  Dwayne Allen, Akeem Davis, Jack Doyle, and. Adam Vinatieri.

 

Colts players who played in 2015, but moved on to play for other teams for the upcoming 2016 NFL season through free agency,  includes Colt Anderson and Dan Herron to Buffalo, Coby Fleener to New Orleans, Jerrell Freeman to Chicago, Dwight Lowery to San Diego, and Billy Winn to Denver.    QB Matt Hasselback also retired, while Ahmad Bradshaw and Charlie Whitehurst have yet to sign with another NFL team.

 

Indiana Hoosiers broadcaster Don Fischer, and former Northwestern, college and NFL player and coach Rick Venturi, are announcing the live TV game commentary for all Colts preseason games in 2016, on flagship station WXIN FOX Channel 59 in Indianapolis, and the Colts Preseason Television Network.  Tonight's Colts @ Bills preseason game is also scheduled to be replayed on The NFL Network later tonight, and in the coming week.

 

Bob Lamey, our 'Voice Of The Colts' and former Colts QB Jim Sorgi, along with sideline reporter and interviewer Matt Taylor,are also announcing the live radio game play-by-play and analysis for the Colts 2016 season on simulcast on Colts flagship stations WFNI ESPN Radio 1070AM and 107.5FM,, WHLK Country 97.1FM, and the Colts Radio Network.

 

Scattered thunderstorms and partly cloudy skies at 78 degrees, feels like 83 degrees,  is the game forecast inside Ralph Wilson Stadium near Buffalo, for the 4:05PM Eastern Standard Time kickoff, along with 55% humidity, 82% precipitation, and southwestern winds at 16 miles per hour.

 

Colts players are wearing their white helmets and pants and blue jerseys, while the host Bills players are wearing their white helmets, jerseys, and pants on the playing field.

 

NO injuries to both our Colts and the Bills players, and we wish them all great luck, they impress their coaching staffs, and make through the player cuts throughout 2016 NFL preseason schedule this summer. GO COLTS!!!!!  :)  :coltslogo:   :1colts:  :colts:  :coltslogo:  :rock:

I believe the local radio stations that might carry it are 1070 A.M (the fan) 97.1 hank fm carries regular season games and believe they do pre season as well and I think 93.1. 1070 and hank fm are on I heart radio. Good luck

Which station are you trying? 1070 is a sports talk radio and 97.1 is a country music station that changes close to game time

    • Encouraged by the weight loss to Goode, Banner, and Stewart.   Surprised by the gain to Morrison and Walker...though both are only 22 and 21 respectively and have yet to enter their primes so it could just be them filling out.    
    • To channel my inner Herm...   "You play to win the game!"
    • it's kind of a win win though if we do have a bad season I won't be too upset and if we have a great season then that's awesome. unless we keep our coach and get like a late 20s pick cuz I mean we'd still get value but not as much maybe as a top 10 pick obviously. it's not as simple as just want a good season not this year. even though I always want the Colts to kick butt
    •   Denver won a superbowl with Brock Osweiler (plus a living corpse Manning). Osweiler (and Siemian both) looked a lot better under Kubiak's hand than any QB under O'Brians hand since he left Boston. Not to mention, O'Brian replaced Fitzpatrick with Hoyer, who was worse than his predecessor, then replaced Hoyer with Osweiler who also was worse than his predecessor. Imo, O'Brian couldn't install a system for his lesser talented QB's, which would've helped them use their strengths.   On the other hand, Pagano is a secondary coach. Let's see what he has done there? The Colts (Grigson) didn't draft a single player in the secondary in the first 3 years. Of the free agent additions: Davis become a first team all pro. Mike Adams made the pro bowl multiple times and played his best football over age 30 in Indy. Dwight Lowery had a decent year here, one of his best. Greg Toler wasn't good, but he played his best football in Indy. The Laron Landry project failed, but it failed more due to not being able to stay healthy, than production. (I didn't particularly like him though, but I can't say he was terrible when healthy.) Darius Butler become a decent player, having his best years of his carreer in Indy. Then, when the Colts finally decided to draft in the secondary: D'Joun Smith turned out to be a bust. Health issues again. Geathers became a fine player - sadly, health issues there again.  For T.J. Green, Hooker and Wilson the jury is still out. And they found Rashan Melvin off the streets. This is not bad at all. Most players, who stayed healthy, played their best in Indy. Of course talent matters. You can't make pro-bowlers out of journeymen.     Pagano's record is 15-7 at home and 13-14 on the road against coaches ahead of him. That's not a bad record considering that coaches ahead of him usually have better rosters under their control. (The numbers might be off by one or two here or there, due to coaching changes, etc. I might counted - or not counted - a game played against a previous coach. I also counted games against Harbaugh and Kubiak supposing they'd be in top10 being active. Anyway the true record must be close to the above.).   All in all, I think Pagano is right there where he belongs to after 3 winning plus 2 down seasons. Middle of the pack. But ..... I think, based on "potential", he is better than his current value. He is a top10 coach on my list.   I know many of you guys strongly disagree, but that's my honest opinion. There are better coaches in the NFL than him. But not many. So I really wish Pagano will prove himself in 2017. Aaand, if he fails and will be fired, then I cross my fingers that there will be at least one guy available of those "not many". (Yes, despite my belief that he is a fine coach, I agree that he has to go if he fails to prove himself. Because that's the right decision. But honestly, I'll be scared if that happens. It won't be easy to find a better guy. And there is always a chance to be ChipKelly-d....)  
    • Banner was up to 260Lbs He was at 253lbs for the combine with a goal of 245lbs. I thought that's what I read.  Walker adding 7 so he's back up over 240.    Wilson at 207lbs jumps out to me. We heard about "football shape" for him. He was 211lbs at the combine. You'd think him being in better shape would make him a blink quicker. If he's a little faster we may not get him. I'm excited to see this kid with Hooker on the back end. If we can get Geathers back we could have something.
