Colts Vs. Eagles Preseason Game Night Thread

Recommended Posts

Hi, Colts fans! :)  Our Indianapolis Colts both won at Buffalo, but lost to Baltimore with identical 19-18 scores in their first preseason games,  Hopefully the Colts can score more points, and win by a bigger margin tonight as the host the visiting and 2-0 Philadelphia Eagles at Lucas Oil Stadium (the building).  Colts seek to win their first preseason win over the Eagles in seven years.

 

Traditionally, the veteran starting players  in both offense and defense perform, and are involved in the most playing time during game action in the third preseason game.  Later by the second half, in this game at the discretion and decision by both the Colts and Eagles coaching staffs, the starters would then be benched and replaced by the drafted and undrafted rookies, and free agents signed, to show their talents on the playing field during the remainder of tonight's game, especially those players on the bubble, to try to make, and survive, next Tuesday's mandatory cutdown from 90 to 75 players by Tuesday afternoon.

 

Tonight is the 21st all-time preseason meeting between Indianapolis and Philadelphia, each team winning 10 games. Colts and Eagles last met both teams  preseason opener last year, with Philadelphia winning 36-10 over Indianapolis, played at Lincoln Financial Field back on August 16, 2015.  However,  won their last preseason meeting over the Eagles, in Philadelphia's last visit to Indianapolis, winning 23-15, back on August 20, 2009.

 

Colts though lead the Eagles in the all-time regular season series 10 games to 9, with their rivalry that began in 1950. Eagles won the last regular season meeting, defeating our Colts 30-27, and played at LOS back on September 15, 2014.

 

Don Fischer and Rick Venturi are announcing the live TV commentary locally on WTTV CBS Channel 4 in Indianapolis, and the Colts Preseason Telelevison Network, live on HD.

 

Bob Lamey and Jim Sorgi are also broadcasting the live radio game play-by-play and analysis, along with sideline reporter and interviewer Matt Taylor, simulcast on Colts flagship stations WFNI ESPN Radio 1070AM, and WLHK Country 97.1, and the Colts Radio Network.

 

LOS's roof should be closed again to protect both the Colts and Eagles, and the fans attending tonight to protect the outside elements, because mostly cloudy skies at 88 degrees, feels like 95 degrees, is the game forecast for the 7:05PM Eastern Standard Time kickoff, along with 15% precipitation, 58% humidity, and southern winds at 8 miles per hour.

 

NO injuries to both the Colts and Eagles, as we wish all the players the best of luck as they try to impress their coaching staffs after tonight's game to try to make the cut from 90 to 75 players, heading into the preseason finale at Cincinnati. Go for Win #2 tonight, and  LET'S GO COLTS!!!!!    :cheer: :coltslogo:  :1colts:  :colts:   :coltshelmet:    :rock::cheer: :coltslogo:

What a crazy preseason it has been already with the cancelled HOF game, the impressive play of our rookies and all of the injuries we are dealing with. 

 

Hopefully everybody gets away from this one healthy. I want to see more 3 wide sets from the offense and somebody, anybody to step up at cb on defense.

I'm going tonight, any suggestions on getting autographs before or after game

Prob too late, but I've had pretty good luck at the seats above the field entrance/exit. Not sure where you're sitting, but you just have to make your way down there and be aggressive with the autograph snakes(dealers). Enjoy the game!

We seem to be highy ineffective in the redzone. 

IMO the D stepped up in the Red Zone it was outside the 20 that was the problem

    •   Probably they will take that chance and pass on a QB at 1.2 or 1.3. If Luck is done , you'll likely have another disaster in 2018 and draft a QB in 2019. If you draft Denard or Rosen , it's pretty tricky to trade them just before the season starts. It would mean not signing him and taking draft picks in 2019 or 2010 as compensation. Also your trading partners would be narrowed as most teams would have "solved" their QB issues.    Plus you would probably need to get to pick 2 in order to draft a QB that would have "tremendous trade value." It's not even a given that  Darnold is coming out. I really highly doubt you see the colts take a QB at pick 1.2 or 1.3 unless there is news that Luck could be done playing.
    • Actually, it can't be taken in different ways.  If a receiver's momentum takes him down to the ground while in the act of making a catch, that receiver has to maintain full possession of the ball through the entire process of going to the ground.  When the Pitt receiver hit the ground, he clearly bobbled the ball, losing grasp on the ball with the ball making contact with the ground out of his control.  He then regained control, but the damage was done, he never maintained control through the process.  No catch.    What my eyes saw is entirely in agreement with the call ... and while the announcers were seemingly dumbfounded about what was taking the reviewers so long, for he was clearly across the line with the ball, I pointed out to those that were watching the game with me, that they are reviewing whether or not he actually caught the ball, for you can clearly see that he does not maintain complete control of the ball while going to the ground, that he bobbles it, losing control as the ball hits the ground.  With the ball in his grasp when he hit the ground, had he NOT bobbled it, then the call would not have been reversed.  That fact that he bobbled it, though, meant that he had to regain control, but because it hit the ground out of his control, it is indisputably no catch, as the rule is written.
