Colts @ Broncos Game Day Thread

Recommended Posts

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:

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

    • Well that was unprovoked..... lol
    • JMV would've been all over this and he has never said anything about this. Luck had 1 last month and that is the only time I have heard he had 1.
    • I would not say he was a high draft pick.  He was picked towards the end of the 4th round.  
    • Are you sure?  How do you know the pain killing injections were not cortisone?  I've been to pain doctors for my hips, cortisone was the only thing offered.

        Indianapolis Colts quarterback Andrew Luck will miss his ninth game of the season when he sits out Sunday's contest against the Titans because of his unhealed lacerated kidney. But now we're learning more about the degree to which Luck was hurt during his first injury-related absence earlier this season. According to an NFL source, Luck sustained torn cartilage on two of his ribs and was still coping with significant pain after returning to the lineup for four games in late October and early November. The injury likely affected Luck's performance after he returned from a two-game absence that the Colts attributed to a shoulder injury. Luck, according to the source, needed pain-killing injections to play and was quite limited by the injury.

    • The #5 overall pick last year was worth 1700 points. If we were to drop to #16 overall, that pick is worth 1000 points. This leaves 700 points worth of draft.   Round 2 16th pick (#48 overall) is worth 420 points   Leaving 280 points.   Could probably pick up their 3rd round pick as well, or a player. The 80th spot (Round 3, 16th pick) is worth 190 points.   So, moving from the top to the mid "should" generate 2 extra draft spots in the ideal areas to address the line.   This would mean the Colts would have
      R1: 16 overall
      R2: 37, 48
      R3: 69, 80 Plus whatever supplemental picks and normal picks
