Colts Vs. Eagles Preseason Game Night Thread

154 posts in this topic

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.

Go Colts! No injuries guys. After what happened to Romo, I hope Andrew plays smart and avoids contact as much as necessary considering it's the pre-season.

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

    • Don't think Boston would do that. I'd rather have both picks too but they will be wanting to keep the young players and open up cap space so they would likely want to move guys they won't re-sign like Avery Bradley and company. I actually think they might want to move Isaiah because he would be due a big contract in a year or whatever and he has the hip injury. Hard to tell if you take a point guard in Fultz and you have Smart already and Rozier....that's a lot of point guards to have. If we got just both picks or also a throw in we would be looking at a true rebuild. We would see us tanking next year and having possibly two top 10 picks to pair with the #1 from this year and Turner. That would be pretty good way to rebuild. That way you just have to sign perhaps one or two free agents with the cap space you free up from losing PG, Teague, CJ, Monta, and AL and you should have a very competitive team. I think Turner is going to be an all-star caliber player. Just have to hit on a couple draft picks and then add a nice free agent or two and you should be able to compete in the East. There is no replacing PG...but if you see that you can't improve the team around him for the long term...you get the best deal you can or you risk your star just walking out on you leaving you with nothing to rebuild with.
    • too late now, but i streamed it live on youtube
    • Yes, You are correct! He's got drug suspension possible. So I wouldn't touch this he's also got some character issues. He;s not the worst guy around or anything but his car was pulled over with a 12 yr old kid smelling of weed and he resisted arrest.   
    • Reggie White? Hes considered the GOAT at his position isn't he? Though JJ Watt has a shot to beat him out.
    • No. Some of those players are going to be underwhelming or outright busts. And the majority of them are going to need time to get acclimated to the NFL's level of speed. There are some positions that just take awhile to develop, the secondary would have a very hard time.    Then to win it they need to go up against much more experienced teams.

    •   Sorry to keep harping on the Irish thing, but did you know the horseshoe has seven points on it?  (The Colts horseshoe, anyway.  Actual shoes for horses depend on the farrier).   Seven is considered a lucky number...  Lucky.  Luck.  I'm telling you, you picked the right team to root for.   7    
    •   Don't hold Boston against the Irish.  It's not our fault.    We love our green, which makes Indiana a tearmann.   I love it that you chose to root for an underdog instead of the Pats.  I don't think it's coincidence that you became a fan around the time Luck got drafted to the Colts.  That's providence.     Horseshoe?  Luck?  Four-leaf clover?  Come on.  Hoosier Hospitality has roots in Irish fun-lovery.  If you're lucky enough to be Irish, you're lucky enough!  May the luck of the Irish be with you!
