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 !!!

 

GOOOOO Colts !!!

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

Ebron just caught a 23 Yard pass! Lions on the move.

 

I would take Stafford and that offense in OT any day.

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

    • Well, I mean, I touched on it in the post you quoted. Look at how the Steelers have under-performed against far inferior teams...they play down to their opponents regularly...this has been the case for a while now...and it's this cocky, toxic environment that he has created. Not the first time the Jaguars have beaten them at home in a playoff game under Tomlin with the guise of a big opponent to follow...Bort beat them, David Garrard beat them...Tim Tebow, one of the worst QBs in NFL history, beat them...that wild card loss to Baltimore a few years ago was a joke too...but ignoring the big stuff, even during the regular season, they cut it way too fine against teams they should be trouncing with their talent.    This might be the most talented offense in the league. And they might know that, but they don't utilize it. They always try to get too tricky for their own good, they want to be geniuses...4th & 1...power forward QB Ben Roethlisberger...a sneak is too easy, even un-athletic 40-year-old Tom Brady still runs sneaks, Ben is like 15 for 15 on getting first downs on sneaks or some ridiculous stat...in a big spot, they go back to back toss sweep right against a diesel front 7. They need to go 1 yard, their QB is 2 yards tall, they go 5 yards behind the LOS and stretch it out into WRs and TEs who can't block LBs. This was the same thing with their overuse of the TE screen in years passed that cost them dearly in big spots.   Even the guys in the locker room, Mike Mitchell, a horrendous player in his own right...talking about how they were prepared for New England...as a result, they didn't get to play them.   You can go on and on, and it's tough to judge coaches from the outside...but if you can sense danger, so to speak, you can sense this thing stinks...it's buoyed by talent, that's fine, but it's not clear that the environment is really healthy there, it's not clear that this thing is really organized. It seems like a country club atmosphere (coincidentally, the Pittsburgh Penguins went through this for a time as well...which I can speak much more about it if only it were the appropriate board) and that falls on the organizational leadership that promotes that.
    •   GMs do that all the time. John Elway could have inked Malik Jackson before he was part of that 2015 historic SB winning season but chose to focus on other priorities knowing that the Von Miller re-signing was coming up. It is possible the Panthers anticipated other priorities then.
    • The Steelers problem is mainly on defense. They just haven't done a good job replacing that studly defense they had in the 2000s. Those linebackers, the secondary, the d line. They just don't have that dynamic defense anymore....and the one pretty athletic side line to side line line backer Shazier got hurt. They don't intimidate anyone any more....they are basically the 2000 Colts...overwhelming teams with offensive firepower.
    • I think this is actually a pretty good FA group for making a shift to a 4-3 defense. Fortunately, all of his long-term commitments from last offseason will fit (which I assume was the plan). But even given the amount of activity last offseason, I fully expect Ballard to get heavily involved in FA on the defensive side...including in the front 7.   A few more names to keep an eye on that haven't been mentioned:   DL - Kony Ealy, Alex Okafor CB - Kyle Fuller ILB  - Christian Jones OLB - Nigel Bradham, Mychal Kendricks (if cut)   I think we could see pickups at ILB, OLB, DE and DT. Could look something like this in early March:   RDE - Ealy RDT - Hankins LDT - ? LDE - Sheard   Will - Kendricks Mike - Hitchens Sam - Simon   That would set up a ton of flexibility heading into the draft. Get an elite defensive prospect (ideally a pass rusher) and then go after some positions on offense like OL, RB and WR.                
    • Furthermore, if you need regurgitation by Holder or Keefer or that which can commonly be observed by any untrained eye to be informed....then you aren't really all that interested in the Colts.   Does my disdain for the Star show too much?  I may need to work on that.
