Colts Vs. Jaguars Game Day Thread

Recommended Posts

Happy New Year,  Colts Nation!  :)     But not entirely happy to  Colts fans  everywhere, as our 2016 Indianapolis Colts are unfoturnately out of the hunt to reach the NFL Playoffs in 2016, since their loss at the Oakland Raiders on December 24.   Colts will try to defeat the visiting Jacksonville Jaguars, with interim coach Doug Marrone at LOS.   A  Colts victory would also equal their   2015 regular season  win total at 8-8  again in 2016.

 

Colts in the past won the AFC South Divison titles with identical 11-5 records in three consecutive seasons, but could not crack beyond 11 wins since the 2009 Colts team won 14 games.

 

This afternoon will also be outside linebacker Robert Mathis's  last game as an Indianapolis Colt, announced this past week his retirement as an active player in the NFL.  Mathis was drafted from Alabama A&M in 2003.  Among many of his achievements  was earning an NFL championship ring with the  Colts team that won Super Bowl XLI,  and both earning and awarded the AFC Defensive Player Of The Year after the 2013 NFL season, and setting the team record with his 128 career sacks.  Mathis is a popular player to Colts fans and and I felt he earned, and certainly deserves  his name in the Colts Ring Of Honor, and perhaps the NFL Pro Football Hall Of Fame, for both his service and achievements.  Well done. Robert!

 

LOS's roof is closed for the 1:05P.M. Eastern Standard Time finale, because sunny skies at 40 degrees, feels like 36 degrees, is the game forecast outside the stadium area in Downtown Indianapolis, along with 0% precipitation, 65% humidity, and  mild southeastern winds at 6 miles per hour.

 

NO injuries, a pleasure posting the Game Day Threads for the 2016 Indianapolis Colts Preseason Schedule, Happy New Year to the Colts Nation as we all enter 2017, win one more game to even your 2016 NFL regular season record again at 8-8, and  for one more game, GO COLTS!!!!!   :coltslogo:     :cheer:     :1colts:    :colts::coltshelmet:   :cheer:  :coltslogo:     :rock:

Thanks LOS. Yep, this is it the last game of the 2016 Season. Looking like another 8-8 season as I do think we will win today, congrats to Robert Mathis on a Great career. He will definitely be in The Ring of Honor one day.

Almost game time, let's do this !!!

 

On an unrelated note, I got a phone call earlier from my sis in law, she thinks my brother has had a stroke :(  He spent from the end of august thru the early part of november in and out of the hospital and rehab. Not the news I wanted to hear on New year's day.

Could this be it for Chuck?

 

If they play like this, I'd bet it is.

It's still early but I think even if we win it should be. That Houston loss here did it for me. I defended him like crazy all season up until that game.

Thanks again, LOS!

 

JlynRN: prayers for a speedy recovery for your brother.  Just another reminder of how our disappointment in our Colts not being in the postseason should be tempered with what is truly important in life.

I hope we keep it close all game and barely win, so we get the W and hopefully Pagano will still get fired!

Jay Glazer says Grigson gets kicked to the curb before PagaNO...

 

I just don't see the reason everyone in the media keeps splitting them up fire them both and be done. Screw keeping either of them.

So sorry for you and your family. I have a brother who was recently diagnosed with a form of very early onset dementia. We need sports for an escape but also reminds us how unimportant they are in the larger scheme of things.

Sorry to hear about your brother, it's rough I know :( My brother has a bad heart, but a transplant at this time is not an option.

    •   Good post.   I agree with a fair amount of it, but not all.   One area where we strongly disagree is money.    I think with the 32 owners every decision they make is about money.    It's all about the $$$ for them.    Who gets to buy a team?    What city?   Who pays for a new stadium?   TV ratings.   Selling jerseys, hats and other gear.    Why would you consider putting a team in places like London and Mexico when you don't have teams in cities like Portland, San Diego, St Louis and San Antonio?    Why do they play games on Thursday might when players and coaches HATE them?   Why do they want to expand to 18 game seasons?    Money.    It's all about the money.   It's always about money.   Yes, it's disappointing that the man can't continue with his life's work...    but I suspect there more to this than meets the eye.   This is a big deal and it has all happened so fast.   I suspect the team and the league are trying to get in front of this before something worse leaks out.      I can empathize for Richardson but that only goes so far as he brought this upon himself.     
    • Irsay is my favorite owner. He seems to always make what he thinks is the best decision for the franchise.  He is not batting 100% but please tell me who is.    It's not like they haven't brought in lineman to try and fix the line,they just haven't been successful. Grigson is to blame for most of it and now he is gone we do need to be patient and allow Ballard the time to hopefully turn this ship wreck around.    I believe Irsay knows he dropped the ball when he hired a Rookie GM and teamed him up with a Rookie Head Coach and Drafted A Rookie Qb. That was asking for a trouble. 
    •     Oh, it's over alright.  
    • Who are you suggesting we sign in free agency? This year's free agent class is awful for offensive linemen. Jack Mewhort is probably somewhere between the second and fourth best lineman in the group, and there isn't a single tackle that I would consider enough of an improvement over Haeg or Good to be worth the money they would likely demand. With how many teams there are that need offensive line help, and the complete lack of really good linemen hitting the open market, some very average linemen are going to get way overpaid, so I don't think we can realistically justify filling more than one starting spot (out of LG, RG, and RT) through free agency.
    •   True. It is an apples and oranges comparison at this point.   Besides, Grigson got canned because he couldn't get along and created a hostile environment for the players and coaches, and if that part was congenial, he'd still be here. That, plus his first round picks going south. He said he went against his gut to draft Ryan Kelly and that was his best first round pick outside the slam dunk pick of Luck.
