Colts Vs. Packers Game Day Thread

Recommended Posts

Hi, Colts fans!  :)  Our 3-5 Indianapolis Colts continue their hunt to stay on top of the AFC South Division, and  try to win their second  consecutive road game of the season, as they visit the 4-3 Green Bay Packers in an NFC North interconference game.   Indianapolis is  playing a regular season game in Green Bay for the first time in eight years, and also will try to win at historic Lambeau Field for the first time in 28 years. 

 

Ever since the Colts lost their first two games of their 2016 NFL season by hosting Detroit and later losing at Denver, Indianapolis has been alternating their wins and losses over their opponents since September 25.  Indianapolis's last road win was two weeks ago when Andrew Luck and the Colts came from behind in less than two minuites in the fourth quarter, to defeat the Tennessee Titans by the score of 34-26, and played at Nissan Stadium in Nashville, back on October 23.

 

Andrew Luck engineered the game-winning drive in their last regular season meeting with the Packers played four years ago at Lucas Oil Stadium (the building). In the fourth quarter,  Packers QB Aaron Rodgers threw an 8-yard touchdown pass to RB James Jones, followed by his failed two-point pass conversion with 4:30 remaining.  Luck then threw an 8-yard pass to WR Reggie Wayne with 35 seconds remaining in the game, followed by Donald Brown's two-yard run, to win the game for Indianapolis, 30-27, back on October 4, 2012.

 

That win from that last meeting earned the Colts the lead in the all-time regular season series, plus one postseason game (1965)  at 22 wins, 21 losses, and 1 tie (20-20 1982 @ Baltimore) in today's 45th meeting, a rivalry that began when the Colts defeated the Packers  41-21 in the first game at Baltimore's Memorial Stadium, back on November 5, 1950.

 

Indianapolis also seeks to win their first regular season road game at Green Bay for the first time since 1988. Colts QB Chris Chandler threw two touchdown passes, 4-yards to WR Matt Bouza , and 24-yards to WR Mark Boyer, along with Dean Biasucci's 20 and 25 yard field goals, and his two PAT's to help the Colts win 20-13 back on November 13, 1988.  Chandler was 9 for 17 passes completed for 98 yards and two TD's, while the Packers Don Majkowski, was 24-41 for 216 yards and 1 TD.

 

Sunny and clear skies at 65 degrees, is the game forecast inside Lambeau Field in Green Bay (Ashwaubenon), Wisconsin, for the 4:25PM Eastern Standard Time kickoff.

 

NO injuries, try to both win your fourth game in two weeks, and your first game at Lambeau Field, since 1988, and LET'S GO COLTS!!!!!  :rock:  :coltslogo:    :1colts:  :colts:  :coltshelmet:  :coltslogo:

This could be bad guys...bad.

 

Recent history has been bizarre between these 2 teams though. The Packers beat the Colts up and down the field all game long in 2012 then blew it. In 2008 the Packers did the same thing and won during their forgettable 6-10 season believe it or not. Then in 2004 the Colts won a Brett Favre vs Peyton Manning shootout 45-31. The other time The Gunslinger squared off against The Sheriff, The Gunslinger won 26-24 in an upset in 2000. That leaves 2004 as the only really predictable game so we'll see.

Yeah I usually pick us to win but I can see us losing this one something like 34-24, not necessarily a blowout because I think we can score on them but I don't see how we stop their Offense.

It's going to take a 60 minute effort by the Colts. I'm hoping the secondary can play well enough to keep it close. I didn't think the Colts had a chance but they have the personnel to play man-to-man. Shock the world 

35-31 Colts in a shootout

Thanks LOS !!  I'm hoping for a good game today. It's going to take a full 60 minutes from the entire team to pull off the win.  Let's do this !!!

I'm kind of angry this game is later. Spent this whole time thinking it was at 12 and now I have to wait another 4 hours. Tired of all these late games.

I don't have a feel for this game at all. I wouldn't be surprised if GB blew us out, but I wouldn't be surprised if we win in a close one.

Yeah, it's a been a bit of a weird year in terms of our schedule.  A few late games to start the year, then London, then Sunday night.  We haven't had many of the 1 PM EST games, which is when the Colts usually play

It would be if the clocks didn't turn back an hour lol

I was arguing with a friend last night as he was convinced we played at 330 Indy time, I kept trying to tell him no, it's still 430, it's been like that for years as nothing changes. He was even wanting to bet me haha

very true...Packers play half the game sometimes....and I guess we play mostly in the 4th quarter

    • 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.
