Colts Vs. Texans Game Day Thread

Recommended Posts

Happy New Year, Colts fans!  :)  But not as entirelyhappy for our loyal and devoted Indianapolis Colts  fans, to start  2018 before New Year's Eve, especially here on the Colts Fan Friendly Forum, as our 3-12 Indianapolis Colts will try to conclude their 2017 NFL Season by winning their fourth game with the visiting, and 4-11  Houston Texans.

 

Both the Colts and Texans have suffered injuries to their starting and veteran players, throughout the 2017 NFL season, and reflects on both teams records. As examples, the Texans lost star players J.J. Watt and rookie QB DeShaun Watson, at the time was on his way to earning NFL Offensive Rookie Of the Year accolades. Colts suffered more players to injured reserve, notably Andrew Luck. Luck spent this season rehabilitating in Europe, and he indicates he should and be ready physically to play be training camp.

 

With a win, Colts could finish 2017 with a 4-12 record, last accomplishing during their 1993 NFL season.  However, a Colts loss would also finish Indianapolis as they have achieved  in consecutive seasons in both 1997 and 1998, before the Colts drafted Peyton Manning, with consecutive 3-13 records.

 

If there is any added incentive in this afternoon's season finale, the Colts by far have the best winning percentage over the Texans over any NFL opponent entering today with a 24 win, and 7 loss record, a winning percentage  of .774, and in today's 32nd regular season meeting.  

 

Indianapolis also defeated Houston to end their three-game losing streak in their last meeting played at NRG Stadium.  Jacoby Brisset threw to touchdowns passes,  from 45 yards and 80 yards, to T.Y. Hilton, and Adam Vinitieri also added his two field goals from 22 and 53 yards, plaus his 2 PAT's to help the Colts defeat the Texans back on November 5.

 

Just a temporary setback for our Colts team, and the Colts will try on a clean slate in 2018, to see both return of Andrew Luck and their level of excellence and talent to return to the NFL Playoffs  for the first time since January 2014.

 

Thanks for entertaining us, try to win one more game in front of your fans at LOS, and GO COLTS!!!!!    :rock:    :cheer:    :coltslogo:  :1colts:    :colts:    :coltshelmet:  :coltslogo:    :cheer: .:D

Thanks again, LOS for opening the thread - the last one of the season.  Hoping for a good game from our kids.

Win or lose we should be setting ourselves up for a good draft position.  Much to look forward to in the new year.

Happy New Year my Colts family!

Thanks LOS, last game of the season. Chucks farewell, Luck is on the sideline, we are picking 3rd at worse no matter what. Should be fun so lets get a win. After today no more Colts Football until September so enjoy folks. Next season will be much better, we will have our QB back and a much better team after the Draft with a new Coach.

 

-This might be Frank Gore's last game too! Just enjoy everyone, Go Colts!

Refs playing a little loose? Should have been PI. Still catchable IMO but oh well.

And we continue to make 3rd string QB's look like HOF candidates.

Absolutely no push from the DL.  Yates has all day to throw.  Nice hit by Basham, though.

Gore gets boatload of carries.

which will probably get him to 100 yards on the day.  Hoping for more, but the Texans know we only have 2 running plays, lol.

Another quality job by Castonzo.......sorry not a fan.

Can't blame that on on AC.  He took Clowney outside, but JB held the ball and...well, you see what happened.

Well, we're behind and our second half history gives me confidence we'll lose.

    • 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.
