Colts @ Texans Game Day Thread

Recommended Posts

Hi, Colts fans!   :)    An AFC South battle where both teams star players suffered injuries, as out  2-6  Indianapolis Colts travel to play the 3-4 Houston Texans.

 

Both teams have lost their quarterbacks in the past week.  Colts QB Andrew Luck had surgery after the 2016 off-season to repair his right shoulder.  Since then Luck was held out of training camp and from participating in any games because the healing process is still taking longer than expected.  After a brief practice, the Colts decided to place Luck on injured reserve, making him unavaillable for the rest of the 2017 NFL season.

 

Luck recently signed a six-year, $140 year extension, with $87 million guaranteed to stay and play the Colts back on June 29, 2016, and just prior to his surgery, missed one game because of a concussion.

 

Texans will also lose their rising rookie Deshaun Watson, who tore his ACL on a non-contact play during team practice last week, which prematurely ended his season,  Watson already earned and was awarded both AFC Offensive Player Of The Month, and NFL Offensive Rookie of The Month in October, and would have been in the running for the NFL Offensive Rookie Of The Year without his torn ACL injury.

 

Colts will also not see Texans defensive end J.J. Watt, left the game after Week 5 with a tibial plateau fracture in his left leg and is out for the season.  Watt also had a previous surgery for a herniated disk, and he was also place on injured reserve in 2016.

 

Jacoby Brissett and Tom Savage will be the starting QB's for both the Colts and the Texans for the 1:05PM Eastern Standard Time kickoff from NRG Stadium.

 

Indianapolis still leads the all-time regular season series with 23 wins and 7 losses in today's 31st divisional meeting, but are on a three-game losing streak over Houston, and seek to win the ir first road game at the Texans since the Colts 27-20 road win back on October 2015.

 

NO injuries, go for win #3, and GO COLTS!!!!!   :coltslogo: .   :1colts:     :colts:   :coltslogo:

Go Colts! Lose a competitive game!

 

No seriously, I have made a decision to savor any victories the Colts can scrape from the bottom of the barrel this season. But I won't lose any sleep if they lose out

Tom Savage has never thrown an NFL TD pass. 

 

Let's see how long that lasts today.

 

Go Colts!!

3rd and 10 on opening drive is a good start. 

 

Now let's stop them.

Did that ball make it back to the LOS? Not sure. Could have been intentional grounding.

Frank is running well on first downs over the past few weeks.

    • Brissett will be better than last year.  Its surprising how everyone forgets he was running for his life every play.  Even Andrew struggled with that pressure... all QBs do.  Brissett will be much better with a year's experience under his belt and an OL that can protect him. other GMs know this and it WILL affect his value.  The way teams spend on unproven QBs, i can see a team or two offering a 2nd or 3rd.  Heck, the Jets gave up 3 to move up only 3 spots to land an unproven QB.  And they really didnt even know WHICH unproven QB they would get.  Some teams get desperate for a starting QB, as we have seen over and over. if we dont get the trade we want, use him until FA in  2 years. i think, under the circumstances (which were stacked against him), Brissett performed better than people give him credit for.
    • If I’m a GM I say one thing.. ‘Good lord no.’   He’s a garbage person.
    • Exactly about the Rockets,  Exactly about LeBron and a game 7 too.  I am not sure the Celtics want that, home or away.  They need to win this game.  I have a bad feeling if the Cavs win tonight easily that they'll win the next 2 after that too.  I guess we'll see.  Be nice to see Boston win tonight! I agree!
    • Well, he was not a 1st rounder, so there is no 5th year option.  We can have him this year, but next year is his last (@ $915,000.00) under contract.  He will want to test FA, and teams wont trade for him unless they fully beleive they can work out a contract.     We'd be lucky to get a 3rd rounder in the following (next) draft for him).  Garopolo was a 2nd rounder, and NE got a second rounder in the next year draft for him, and JG was showcased well and was a desired commodity.  Got paid. I'm not sure JB gets that kind of attention based upon last year.     It would be nice, but I think it is rainbow colored...  see JG example just  above.     I think this as well.  Trade likely won't happen if we demand too much.     I'd like that, but don't think it will happen unless he lights it up this year (which means Luck isn't playing, which would be bad as well).  Time will tell.
