Colts Vs. 49ers Game Day Thread

Recommended Posts

Hi, Colts Nation!   :)   Our 1-3 Indianapolis Colts continue honoring former Colts QB Peyton Manning as our Colts host the visiting and winless, 0-4 San Francisco 49ers  at LOS (the building).   49ers are in a rebuilding mode, with new General Manager John Lynch, and new Head Coach Kyle Shanahan.  Colts are  alsoplaying their third NFC West divisional opponent in five games.


Retired Colts legend Peyton Manning  earlier this weekend was immortalized with a bronze statue in front of LOS,  honoring his accomplishments as a Colt.  #18 played 14 seasons with the Indianapolis Colts, and won Super Bowl Championships with both Super Bowl XLI  (41) for the Colts, and Super Bowl L (50) for the Denver Broncos.  Manning will also be honored i for his accomplishments as a Colt in today's game, and ahead for him his induction into the Pro Football Hall Of Fame in Canton, Ohio in the first ballot.


Current Colts incumbent QB Andrew Luck  also returned to practice last week, but Jacoby Brissett still starts for the Colts vs. the 49ers, while Andrew watches from the sidelines.


Today current third-year Colts running back Frank Gore also plays his first game facing his former team, the 49ers.  Gore played for San Francisco between 2005 through 2015, and was named five times into the Pro Bowl, a second team Pro Bowler while he was a 49er.

Gore also helped San Francisco to Super Bowl XLVII in New Orleans, but the Baltimore Ravens defeated his 49ers 34-31.


NO injuries, win your second game in 2017, and keep the 49ers winless at LOS, and GO COLTS!!!!!   :cheer: :coltslogo: . :1colts:  :colts: :coltslogo:   :cheer:    :rock:

    • Eh, I think Breeland is better than Wilson right now. I think as of now we already are in trouble at CB. I think it’s too much to expect Wilson to be a viable CB 1 next season.   As it stands right now, with no Breeland, I think we’re in serious trouble if any one of our top 3 CBS go down.
    • Supposedly we received trade offers for Brissett.  Ballard said no probably to hedge agains Luck not being ready. If Luck returns fully recovered you can bet he will be gone next year and we will sign an older veteran backup.  If he has a good preseason we could easily get another 2nd. rd. pick at a minimum to help finish the rebuild.  Especially since next years QB class is not that great. 
    • If he is CB1, we are in trouble. He would not even be CB2 for the Redskins now. Even though they traded Kendall Fuller for Smith, they have  Norman, they signed Quinton Dunbar to an extension and then acquired Orlando Scandrick in free agency. Add Fabian Moreau and there just wasn't room for Breeland anymore.  That's why he was an FA. If he is CB2 at best for us, I'd feel better.   In 2016 PFF showed he was #1 slot CB in the league-   A Falcons article reported this above as well (before he got hurt) and about maybe getting him for their Nickel back. But added-
        "Breeland isn’t without his blemishes on the field either. His eight penalties last season tied him for fourth among all DBs (Robert Alford had seven, as a reference point). He also has his fair share of bad games and has been susceptible to giving up big plays and big stat-lines in the past."   I wonder if his pay demands have dropped any (like Ryan Grant?) after he is healthy?    
    • I’ll wait till releases theirs
    • The highlight just went with the article I posted. My point is basically what you said at the end, if healthy he’d be a solid CB 2, possibly even CB 1 on our team IMO. And if our goal is to put the best possible team on the field, I think he’d be a good signing.
