Colts @ Raiders Game Day Thread

683 posts in this topic

Hi, Colts fans!  :) Our 7-7 Indianapolis Colts are still in the hunt for at least an AFC Wild Card Playoff Spot,  as they are in Oakland, California, to play the 11-3 and AFC West Division leading Oakland Raiders, in the Colts first visit to Oakland in nearly six years.  

 

Interesting game in a showcase of young NFL quarterbacks attempting to thwart their opposing teams defenses, featuring the Colts own Andrew Luck playing opposite the Raider's Andrew Carr.

 

Indianapolis have an opportunity on Saturday afternoon to even the all-time series with Oakland with beach team at eight games apiece, in today's 16th meeting.  Peyton Manning threw the game-clincher with his 7-yard touchdown pass to WR Pierre Garcon, with 7:38 remaining in the fourth quarter, to help the Colts defeat the Raiders 31-19, back on December 26, 2010.

 

Colts have not lost a regular season road game at Oakland in more than 21 years.  Raiders last home over the Colts was a 30-17 at the Oakland-Alameda Coliseum back on October 22, 1995. Peyton Manning was still a QB at the University Of Tennessee in Knoxville that year.

 

Raiders still may clinch the AFC West division title on whoever wins the Houston, Kansas City, and/or Pittsburgh win their games this weekend, and at the same time eliminate the Colts this weekend from playoff contention.

 

Jim Nantz and former New York Giants and Moorehead State QB Phil Simms, along with sideline reporter and interviewer Tracy Wolfson, are announcing the live TV game commentary for The NFL On CBS's primary late doubleheader game, seen live on HD in most of the USA, including locally in Indianapolis on WTTV CBS Channel 4.

 

Sunny skies at  51 degrees, feels like 47 degrees is the game forecast inside the Oakland-Alameda Coliseum, for the 4:05PM Eastern Standard Time kickoff, along with 0% precipitation, 58% humidity, and  northwest winds at 13 miles per hour.

 

My Christmas wish is for the Colts to stay alive for another week, and with help and luck ( the definition of good fortune, not Andrew Luck), Indianapolis survives these last to weeks and through chance earn a playoff spot.

 

NO injuries. let's see our Colts go for their eight win in 2016, defeat the Raider in their Black Hole,  and GO COLTS!!!!!     :):coltslogo:   :1colts:    :colts:  :coltshelmet:   :coltslogo:  :rock:

Mariota appears done for the year with that ankle injury, currently down 15 to the Jaguars with only 10 minutes to go.

Might be the first time I've ever cheered for a Bengals win tonight, after the Colts beat the Raiders

We definitely have to win a shootout. We won't get pressure on those monsters they have blocking for Carr.

So did we game plan for this game like the Jets and Vikings or was this a Texans game plan week?

Morrison has decent north to south speed but his knee injury has reduced his lateral quickness.  That was a great tackle for loss on 2nd and 1 that stalled the drive.  He also had a big hit on the RB on that 9 yard run the play before.

    • Encouraged by the weight loss to Goode, Banner, and Stewart.   Surprised by the gain to Morrison and Walker...though both are only 22 and 21 respectively and have yet to enter their primes so it could just be them filling out.    
    • To channel my inner Herm...   "You play to win the game!"
    • it's kind of a win win though if we do have a bad season I won't be too upset and if we have a great season then that's awesome. unless we keep our coach and get like a late 20s pick cuz I mean we'd still get value but not as much maybe as a top 10 pick obviously. it's not as simple as just want a good season not this year. even though I always want the Colts to kick butt
    •   Denver won a superbowl with Brock Osweiler (plus a living corpse Manning). Osweiler (and Siemian both) looked a lot better under Kubiak's hand than any QB under O'Brians hand since he left Boston. Not to mention, O'Brian replaced Fitzpatrick with Hoyer, who was worse than his predecessor, then replaced Hoyer with Osweiler who also was worse than his predecessor. Imo, O'Brian couldn't install a system for his lesser talented QB's, which would've helped them use their strengths.   On the other hand, Pagano is a secondary coach. Let's see what he has done there? The Colts (Grigson) didn't draft a single player in the secondary in the first 3 years. Of the free agent additions: Davis become a first team all pro. Mike Adams made the pro bowl multiple times and played his best football over age 30 in Indy. Dwight Lowery had a decent year here, one of his best. Greg Toler wasn't good, but he played his best football in Indy. The Laron Landry project failed, but it failed more due to not being able to stay healthy, than production. (I didn't particularly like him though, but I can't say he was terrible when healthy.) Darius Butler become a decent player, having his best years of his carreer in Indy. Then, when the Colts finally decided to draft in the secondary: D'Joun Smith turned out to be a bust. Health issues again. Geathers became a fine player - sadly, health issues there again.  For T.J. Green, Hooker and Wilson the jury is still out. And they found Rashan Melvin off the streets. This is not bad at all. Most players, who stayed healthy, played their best in Indy. Of course talent matters. You can't make pro-bowlers out of journeymen.     Pagano's record is 15-7 at home and 13-14 on the road against coaches ahead of him. That's not a bad record considering that coaches ahead of him usually have better rosters under their control. (The numbers might be off by one or two here or there, due to coaching changes, etc. I might counted - or not counted - a game played against a previous coach. I also counted games against Harbaugh and Kubiak supposing they'd be in top10 being active. Anyway the true record must be close to the above.).   All in all, I think Pagano is right there where he belongs to after 3 winning plus 2 down seasons. Middle of the pack. But ..... I think, based on "potential", he is better than his current value. He is a top10 coach on my list.   I know many of you guys strongly disagree, but that's my honest opinion. There are better coaches in the NFL than him. But not many. So I really wish Pagano will prove himself in 2017. Aaand, if he fails and will be fired, then I cross my fingers that there will be at least one guy available of those "not many". (Yes, despite my belief that he is a fine coach, I agree that he has to go if he fails to prove himself. Because that's the right decision. But honestly, I'll be scared if that happens. It won't be easy to find a better guy. And there is always a chance to be ChipKelly-d....)  
    • Banner was up to 260Lbs He was at 253lbs for the combine with a goal of 245lbs. I thought that's what I read.  Walker adding 7 so he's back up over 240.    Wilson at 207lbs jumps out to me. We heard about "football shape" for him. He was 211lbs at the combine. You'd think him being in better shape would make him a blink quicker. If he's a little faster we may not get him. I'm excited to see this kid with Hooker on the back end. If we can get Geathers back we could have something.
