Colts @ Broncos Game Day Thread

929 posts in this topic

Hi, Colts fans!   :)  Our Indianapolis Colts move on from their disappointing season opening home loss at LOS (the building) last Sunday, as the Colts are  in Colorado, to play the  Super Bowl 50 Champions Denver Broncos, in both teams 26th all-time regular season meeting between the teams.  Colts also seek to win their first regular season win at the Mile High City in six years.

 

Both the Colts and Broncos have a battle this afternoon of young quarterbacks.  Besides a recovered Andrew Luck ready for game action today after missing most of the 2015 season suffering with a lacerating kidney, and partially torn abdominal muscle, the Broncos will start Trevor Siemien, who was the third-string QB in the Broncos depth chart behind Manning and current Texans starter Brock Osweiler.

 

Both the Broncos and Colts do not have to worry this afternoon the presence of former QB, and future Pro Football Hall Of Famer Peyton Manning and his impact and legacy,  since he subsequentially announced and decided to retire as an active player, after leaving the game as a champion by his and the Broncos winning Super Bowl 50 last February in Santa Clara, CA.

 

Colts defeated the Broncos in their last regular season road win in Denver by the score of 27-13 back on September 26, 2010.  Adam Vinatieri scored two field goals from 38 and 33 yards in the first quarter, Peyton Manning threw three touchdown passes,  two from 23 yards and 5 yards to Austin Collie, and a 9-yarder to Blair White, followed by three PAT's by Vinatieri.

 

Colts also defeated the Broncos in their 2014 AFC Divisional Playoff Game, their last win in Denver, also played at Sports Authority Field at Mile High Stadium. Colts RB Dan Herron scored a 6-yard touchdown, then Andrew Luck threw two touchdown passes,  3 yards to Dwayne Allen, and  15 yards to Hakeem Nicks, following three PAT's, and a 30-yard field goal by Adam Vinatieri, to upset the Broncos at their home turf 24-13 back on January 11, 2015.  Colts eventually lost the following Sunday to the Patriots in the AFC Championship "Deflategate' Game, resulting in Tom Brady's current suspension.

 

Indianapolis defeated Denver in their most recent meeting played at LOS back on November 8, 2015. AV kicked the game winner with his 55-yard field goal with 6:13 remaining in the fourth quarter, helping the Colts win 27-24.  That  win earned the Colts the current lead in the all-time series, including two playoffs games, at 13 wins and 12 losses, a rivalry that began when the Broncos defeated the Baltimore Colts 17-6 in both teams first-ever regular season meeting since the 1970 AFL-NFL Merger played at Memorial Stadium back on November 10, 1974.

 

Sunny and clear skies at 85 degrees is the game forecast inside the Sports Authority Field At Mile High Stadium for the 4:25PM Eastern Standard Time kickoff, along with  0% precipitation, 11% humidity, and mild eastern winds at 7 miles per hour.   

 

Colts are wearing the traditional all-white with blue trim helmet, jerseys, and pants, while the host Broncos are wearing their orange helmets and jerseys, and white pants.

 

NO injuries to both the Colts and Broncos, and let's hope Andrew tries to show comeback player of the year potential, as he helps the Colts win their first game of their 2015 regular season away in Denver!  GO COLTS!!!!!   :rock:  :coltslogo:  :1colts:  :colts::coltshelmet:    :coltslogo:

It will be much easier to properly hate them without Peyton on the field. That's for sure

I do have a weird feeling we will play another close, high scoring game. Even with the potential to get away with a win. Hope Chuck has the players ready to play out of the gate, not another lethargic first half please..

With the still injured D, Luck and co still have the pressure of needing to score on most offensive possessions.

 

Go Colts, please re-energize us for this season!!

I always wanted Peyton to do well, just not enough so to beat us! Can't help it, love Peyton, but the "Shoe" comes first.

Erik Walden has to play a bigger role for our team. They need to let him rush the passer instead of just setting the edge.

Another interesting factoid: Colts have not had a running back rush for at least 100 and more yards in 50 or 51 straight games.

I think @Dustin posted a tweet saying that's the 3rd longest streak in NFL history, with the longest being 55 games.  Kinda sad...

 

We did have 100+ rush yards last year at least once.  Not a single rusher, but as a team

Nice win by Tennessee. Their Defense stepped up where our's didn't. I am really disappointed in Alex Smith but his play shouldn't shock me.

Same.  San Diego doesn't have Keenan Allen.  By the time the Green Bay game starts tonight, I expect it to be Houston, Tennesse/Jacksonville, Indy

    • What is the title of your book?  
    • No true edge rusher. We need one.
    • That's like DEEP black.......if Ballard isn't blowing smoke about what he looks for in DB's.
    •   This is not a prediction of who will be taken in the first round.     If I was predicting,  I'd have Mahomes on my list.    I think he'll be taken in the first.    But he's not a 1st round talent for me.     Conley was on my list right up until about noon today.   These are my top-32 players,  for what little it's worth.     1.   Myles Garrett         DE        Texas A&M   Note:    Easiest pick of the list!   2.   Jamaal Adams       SS        LSU   Note:         Top-5 tape,  but not top-5 athlete   3.   Solomon Thomas     DE      Stanford   Note:       Football infant, just starting to play the game.    High ceiling   4.    Jonathan Allen          DT       Alabama   Note:    See Jamaal Adams;    Great tape,  but did not test like a premium athlete   5.    Leonard Fournette       RB       LSU   Note:     Runaway freight train.    Main worry is health;  often gets nicked up.   6.    Marshawn Lattimore      CB       Ohio State   Note:     Raw,  still learning.   Great physical tools and skills at a premium position.   High ceiling   7.    Ruben Foster                 ILB        Alabama   Note:      Character red flags galore,  but he's all over the field impacting every game   8.    Malik Hooker                  FS         Ohio St.   Note:   Another one-year wonder;  but plays center field and finds the football like Ed Reed   9.   Corey Davis                    WR       West Michigan    Note:  High ankle sprain has sidelined Davis during scouting season.   But those that I read/hear prefer Davis to Williams   10.    OJ Howard               TE          Alabama   Note:    Under-utilized in college,  but great physical tools   11.   Derek Barnett             DE/OLB      Tennessee   Note:     Three years of high level play in the SEC speaks for itself   12.     Christian McCaffrey        RB        Stanford   Note:    If used properly,  then he's a match-up nightmare.    If not,  could be disappointment.   Top flight WR skills plus return skills complete the package   13.     DeSean Watson             QB        Clemson   Note:   Winner.    Leader.     Competitor.     Needs a year (or more) of NFL polishing, but so do all QB's in this class.   14.    Haason Reddick              LB         Temple   Note:    Has anyone come farther, faster?     Can play outside or inside?    What do want/need?   15.     Forrest Lamp                    G          Western Kentucky   Note:   4-year starter, mostly at LT with short arms.     Will kick inside much like ND's Zack Martin.     Not often a guard is top OL in a class.   16.     Charles Harris                  OLB/DE        Missouri   Note:  Said to be a top-20 player on a number of boards including Chris Ballard.   17.     Mike Williams                      WR            Clemson   Note:   Not a good rout runner,  but great when the ball is in the air.    Great size.   18.    David Njoku                          TE             Miami   Note:    A late bloomer with surprising NFL skill set.   More split TE than in-line blocker   19.     Takk McKinley                      OLB           UCLA   Note:    Raw, but great attitude and tools.    Often compared to someone named......   Mathis   20.    Ryan Ramczyk                        OT          Wisconson   Note:    One year at Wisconsin playing at lower division school.   But did well for Wisconsin who know how to turn out OL's   21.     TreDavius White                   CB           LSU   Note:    Another multi-year starter from LSU     Highly competitive press corner   22.       Jarrod Davis                      ILB/OLB       Florida   Note:    Can play inside and out,  though most seem to see a man in the middle   23.     Mitch Trubisky                         QB           N. Carolina   Note:     Might be the best QB out of this class,  but I just can't get past only 13 starts when NFL teams really want twice that   24.      Dalvin Cook                             RB         Florida St.   Note:    Character red flags off the field,  fumbling and injuries on the field are keeping a once-top-10 talent much lower   25.     Cam Robinson                         OT           Alabama   Note:   Likely no more than average Left Tackle,  but might be a very good Right Tackle   26.     Marlon Humphreys                  CB           Alabama   Note:   The latest corner out of the Tide factory.    Great physical skills,  but very poor skills when the ball is in the air.   27.     Taco Charlton                          DE/OLB/DT       Michigan   Note:    One year of good production and did not test as well as expected gives some concern   28.    John Ross                                  WR                  Washington   Note:   4.22 is his calling card.     But two surgeries and a small frame worry scouts   29.    Kevin King                                  CB              Washington   Note:   6'3" frame and 32" arms and tested much better than expected.   Has forced scouts to reconsider what King can be   30.    Garrett Bolles                             OT                Utah   Note:   Smallish Zone Left Tackle with good feet,  but he's also 25 as a rookie.   31.      Quincy Wilson                         CB                  Florida   Note:   Zone or off-ball corner with great size   32.      Julius Peppers                          SS                Michigan   Note:   His diluted test not with standing,  he's great great talent and is considered a leader on the field.    With NFL coaching should settle into Safety plus returns skills.
