Colts @ Bengals Preseason Game Night Thread

Recommended Posts

Hi, Colts fans!  :)  Our Indianapolis Colts conclude their 2016 preseason schedule, as they travel southeast down Interstate 74 to play their annual preseason game with the Cincinnati Bengals.  Tonight is both the Colts 23rd all-time preseason meeting with the Bengals, and 12th visit in Cincinnati for a scheduled preseason game.

 

Many players are on the bubble tonight to make the regular season roster, and after tonight's game, all NFL teams must cut at least 22 remaining players to meet the mandatory 53-man regular season roster for the 2016 NFL regular season.

 

Head Coach Chuck Pagano and his coaching staff, General Manager Ryan Grigson, the Colts pro and scouting departments, and perhaps even Colts owner Jim Irsay and his family, go through the annual and unpleasant decisions in personnel, and retaining the best players by position, that will become the 2016 Indianapolis Colts that take the field on opening Sunday, September 11.

 

Cincinnati though leads the all-time preseason series over Indianapolis entering tonight with 14 wins and 8 losses. Bengals are also in a three game preseason winning streak over our Colts, outscoring 71-23 in those three games.  Colts last preseason win over the Bengals was four years ago, when Indianapolis defeated Cincinnati by the score of 20-16 back on in the preseason finale back on August 30, 2012.   Highlights in that last preseason win over Cincinnati includes two touchdown runs in the second quarter, from 7 yards by Deji Karim, and 1 yard by Darren Evans, two PAT's by Adam Vinateiri, and a Chandler Harnish 42-yard touchdown pass to Dominique Jones.

 

Cincinnati may currently lead the preseason series 14-8, but more important for Indianapolis, the Colts lead both the all-time regular season series with 17 wins and 10 losses and 2 postseason series. Colts last two regular wins occured during their 2014 NFL season.  Colts defeated and shutout the Bengals 27-0 at LOS (the building) on October 19, and defeated the Bengals again in the rematch in their AFC Wild Card Playoff Game by the score of 26-7 on January 4, 2015, both games played at Lucas Oil Stadium (the building).

 

NO injuries, and good luck to all the reserve and free agents that are trying to make the cut with both the Colts and the Bengals. GO COLTS!!!!!     :coltslogo:    :rock:  :1colts:     :colts::coltshelmet:  :coltslogo:  :)

I hope for no injuries. We could lose 50-0 but if we come out with 0 serious injuries, that itself is a win.

I agree but we will have the usual 4 or 5 posters that say the season is over if we lose haha. If we lost 100-0 I could care less as long as Luck and nobody else is injured. I doubt if Luck plays anyway. I wouldn't play him.

I know most of the starters probably won't play, but still hope to see a good game.  Most importantly, no injuries on either team.

 

GOOOO Colts !!!

Of course I will watch but it's still a meaningless game. I hope Morris plays a lot.

Depends on who you are and how closely you watch players. For some of us it's an exciting game because we get too see if a player we want will make the team or not

Cant argue that. It is important for the players who borderline on making the team. What I meant by meaningless is it doesn't matter if we win or lose. I hope Morris plays well.

B: There's nothing else to do tonight. 

C: See B.

Off topic but Brady looks like dog doo tonight, he just got INT so I guess the Patriots will go 6-10 (sarcasm)

He almost got picked off again, if that happened I would be thinking 5-11 for them haha. I know I am having too much fun with this. Eli isn't even playing. Pats have to punt again.

They better trade Brady and fire Belichick. They are doomed.

-I look for Todman to make a strong case tonight at RB to stick to the roster

-I look Rogers to assert his place on the roster tonight

-I think Maggit gets his first sack tonight while continuing to get some pressure, He had been close a few times

-I'm hoping Swoope makes himself relevant tonight

-I think Ridley has a solid game tonight in limited carries

Nice first drive. Rather this happen here and make adjustments. It would have been nice to score a touchdown for confidence though. Coffman looks good and may take Swoope's spot since Swoope has only caught balls on plays called directly for him.

I like Turbin too for his toughness but he looked a little tentative on that drive. He just needs to run with power.

The run game is seriously at the point that I almost dismiss the fumbles anymore on solid runs because of nothing more than the fact that a solid run is extremely rare to see I your a Colt fan. So solid run by Turbin

Looks like Glover-Wright is starting which I did not expect. He's had a couple good tackles so far though.

 

Mitchell is out there as well. Good to see.

    • Funny how much parity there is in the league especially for this season. Green Bay's season is effectively over, (much like ours if Luck don't come back soon), but when Aaron was healthy, I couldn't legitimately picture anyone in the NFC marching into Lambeau and beating Rodgers in January. 
    • Excellent theory except Colin should have also added that Pagano and coaching staff will also be turned over for Ballard's own pick of head coach and coaching staff. NFL.com already believes Pagano is a lame duck and no Andrew Luck to bail him out this year. Looking forward to a fresh start all around next year.
    • I agree that they  planned on Luck sitting the entire year but i'm not sure about the JB part.  I don't even think they considered that until it became obvious that Tolzein was absolute trash. But Luck sitting out was always the plan in my opinion and Irsay simply lied and dangled that carrot that he would return  in front of the fan base to get them to renew season tickets and keep attending games and buying concessions. Every thing that has happened has just been a piece of the plan, from his removal from pup, to his "practice" sessions of every other day, to now his setback. And as i said the other day and as Colin also said, give it a couple weeks and he will be officially done for the year.  Was listening to Dakich on 1070 the other day and he said he was told from someone who is as close as it gets to Luck besides his own family, and he was told Luck aint playing and this was all done for ticket sales.  Apparently Dakich brought this up weeks ago as well before the "setback" even happened. 
    • Here's the problem with Colin's theory....   If you want to trade Brissett -- fine.   But you DON'T want to trade him in the 2018 draft.     It's the best and deepest draft for QB's in a long, long time.    That drives Brissett's value DOWN.   If you're going to trade Brissett it's much better to do it for the 2019 draft which won't be as talented and that will make Brissett's value go UP.   Simple law of supply and demand.   But in broad general terms, I think there's some logic to Colin's theory.   I just don't think this is as cut and dry as he makes it out to be.    This didn't all get hatched back in January when Ballard was hired.    This has played out over the course of the entire year.    Lots and lots of moving parts that have happened over the last nine months and didn't all happen back when Ballard was hired.   Interesting,  but somewhat over thought.
