    wow low attendance

    Nadine, I also notice that too.  A busy night of local  entertainment  in Cincinnati sports.  Colts are playing the Bengals at Paul Brown Stadium, the Reds are playing at the Miami Marlins right now at South Florida, and the University Of Cincinnati Bearcats football team are playing the UCLA Bruins on their campus.  And all three events started at the same time right after 7:00 PM Eastern Time!


    Not to mention a few high school football games probably being played right now that we are not aware of in the Cincy area.

  2. Hi, Colts fans! :)  Our Indianapolis Colts are  southeast down Interstate 74 to play the Cincinnati Bengals in both teams 28th all-time preseason meeting. Colts are also trying to avoid   a winless 2019 preseason tonight.


    Jacoby Brissett might start at QB for tonight's preseason finale, but Phillip Walker and Chad Kelly may also get significant playing time during the course of tonight's game, while the rest of the reserve and backup players are evaluated one last time on the playing field by the coaching and support staffs, as they earn roster starts, and build the depth chart for the final 53-man regular season roster.


    There is also a possibility the Colts may sign, acquire or trade for a marquee quarterback available on the waiver wire during the final cutdown this weekend  after the announced retirement last Saturday  by Andrew Luck, and before the regular season opener at the L.A. Chargers on September 8.


    Colts  also defeated the Bengals, in the Colts last visit to Cincinnati, in both teams season finale, as OB Phillip Walker threw the game-winning, 28-yard touchdown pass to Cobi Hamilton, to win 27-26 back on August 30, 2018.  Both teams finished with 3-1 preseason records.


    Indianapolis also leads Cincinnati 17-12   in all-time regular season games, and 2-0 in postseason games.


    Sunny and clear skies at 81 degrees, feels like 82 degrees, is the local gamecast inside Paul Brown Stadium for the 7:05 PM kickoff, along with 0% precipitation, 47% humidity, and southwest winds at 8 miles per hour.


    NO injuries, great luck to the players making the cut to the final 53-man regular season roster, and LET'S GO COLTS!!!!   :rock:  :coltslogo:   :1colts:    :colts:   :coltshelmet:   :coltslogo:   :D

  3. Another NFL Preseason Game Night, Colts fans!  :)  A battle of  0-2  teams  seeking their first win in the 2019 NFL preseason play in Circle City, as the Chicago Bears come south on Interstate 65,  to play our Indianapolis Colts in both teams first preseason meeting in four years. 


    Chad Kelly and Phillip Walker are the only other Colts quarterbacks available,  both listed in the training camp roster, and the team depth chart, probably available to play tonight, since neither Jacoby Brissett or Andrew Luck will play for the rest of the preseason.


    This situation reminds me when the Colts  had a shortage of QB's in the 2015 season finale,  when Andrew Luck, Charlie Whitehurst, and Matt Hasselbeck were sidelined and placed on injured reserve.when Josh Freeman and Ryan Lindley both signed the week prior,  both led the Colts for their 30-24 win over the Tennessee Titans at LOS on January 3, 2016.


    A familiar face to see on the visitors sidelines is  the Bears Defensive Coordinator, Chuck Pagano, hired in the off-season by Chicago.  Pagano also returns to Indianapolis, where was the Colts Head Coach from 2012-2017.  Pagano produced a 56-46 regular season record in his five years as the Colts Head Coach between 2012 through 2017,   Pagano also led the Colts with three straight playoffs with 11-5 regular season records from 2012 to 2014,  AFC South Division Titles in 2013 and 2014, and an AFC Championship Game appearance (Lost to Patriots 7-45).


    Indianapolis and Chicago are playing their 16th all-time preseason game, with the Colts leading the all-time preseason series between the teams at 9-5-1.  Colts defeated the Bears in both teams  last preseason game, and visit to LOS by the score of 23-11 back on August 22, 2015.


    Indianapolis also  currently leads the all-time regular season series at 23-11, including  winning Super Bowl XLI over the Bears, their only playoff win  over Chicago.  Colts also defeated the Bears, winning 29-23, during both teams last regular season meeting also played at Lucas Oil Stadium (the building),  back on October 9, 2016.


    Colts may play the Bears at Soldier Field, when the AFC South teams play the NFC North teams during interdivisional play in the 2020 NFL regular season.


    Colts defeated the Bears  29-17 in Super Bowl XLI, during  the rainy, and then-named at the time, Dolphins Stadium At Miami Gardens, back on February 4, 2007.   The 2006 Colts team that finished 12-4 during the regular season were lead by  Head Coach Tony Dungy, and Super Bowl XLI MVP  QB Peyton Manning.


    LOS's retractable roof might be open for tonight's 7:05 PM Eastern Standard Time kickoff, because the local gamecast around the stadium area is 75 degrees, 0% precipitation, 52% humidity, and  east/northeast winds at 11 miles per hour.


    Great luck to all the Colts and Bears players, especially the backup players and reserves, as they continue to audition during their  training bears-week-3-camp, and the preseason games, on trying to make the cut to the final 53.


    NO injuries, GO Blue Horseshoe, Win Your First Preseason Game, And Home Game In Your 2019 NFL Season, and LET'S GO COLTS!!!!!     :cheer:   :coltslogo:  :1colts:  :colts:  :coltshelmet:  :coltslogo: . :cheer::rock::D

  4. Hi, Colts fans!  :) Our Indianapolis Colts will try to win both their first preseason, and first game in 2019 as they host the Cleveland Browns, as both teams lead off the Saturday's live game action in the Week 2, 2019  NFL Preseason Schedule, and the Colts Vs. Browns NFL game will be the first of three live preseason games televised nationally on The NFL Network.


    Our Colts suffered a 24-16 preseason road loss at Buffalo, while Browns won in Cleveland, defeating the Redskins 30-10 in both teams Week 1 preseason games.


    Indianapolis and Cleveland are playing their ninth all-time preseason game, with the Colts leading the series 6-2.  Colts defeated the Browns in 27-6 in both teams last preseason meeting played at Lucas Oil Stadium (the building) back on August 24, 2013. 


    Indianapolis and Cleveland have also played 29 games, including 25 regular season games (Colts lead 13-12), and 4 postseason games (2-2). Colts defeated the Browns 31-28 in the last meeting played at LOS back on September 24, 2017.


    Colts held their last full week of their training camp, and  have been having joint practices with the Cleveland Browns after the Browns arrived to Indiana Tuesday night.  Both teams held joint practices on Wednesday and Thursday at the Grand Park Sports Campus in Westfield.


    Colts Head Coach Frank Reich and his Colts assistant coaches and support staff concluded and  wrapped up the 2019 training camp Friday at Westfield. Many players played great after healing from injuries during the offseason, and competition for wide receiver and cornerback are reportedly intense during training camps. Colts WR Daurice Fountain suffered and was hospitalized and had surgery with  his severe ankle injury on Friday's last day of training camp.


    Cleveland Browns also feature players that may only play a few offensive series after the start of this afternoon's game, including second-year players QB Baker Mayfield and RB Nick Chubb, and off-season signees WR Odell Beckham, Jr., and RB Kareem Hunt.  Browns had a second half surge during the second half of their 2018 NFL Regular Season, and finished 7-8-1.


    Third-year Colts QB Jacoby Brissett could start the rest of the preseason games, as news of Andrew Luck's calf and ankle sprain, and uncertainty of Luck available to start in Week 1 of the NFL Regular Season made around the media outlets, after being awarded the 2018 NFL Comeback Player Of The Year.


    Greg Rakestraw and former University Of Northwestern and NFL coach Rick Venturi are announcing the live TV game commentary, along with sideline reporter and interviewer Larra Overton, simulcast locally in Indianapolis both on WXIN FOX Channel 59 and live online game streaming  in your personal devices on https://fox59.com/ , regionally in Indiana, Illinois, and Kentucky on the Colts Preseason Television Network, and nationally on both The NFL Network, and The Armed Forces Broadcast Network.


    LOS's roof will be closed for this afternoon's 4:05 PM Eastern Standard Time kickoff, because the local gamecast around the stadium area in Downtown Indianapolis is 84 degrees, feels like 88 degrees, 15% precipitation, 59% humidity, and southwest winds at 8 miles per hour.


    NO injuries to all the Colts and Browns players, as all of them continue to both apply and audition for rosters sports in September, especially the drafted and undrafted college players,  and the rookie and veteran free agents, make the cut throughout the preseason games and their teams training camps, from the current 90-man rosters, to the final 53-man regular season roster and practice squad.


    Win your first game in front home fans for the first time in 2019 at LOS, Go Blue, and LET'S GO COLTS!!!!! :cheer:  :rock:    :coltslogo: . :1colts:  :colts:  :coltshelmet:  :coltslogo:    :cheer:   :D

  5. Parris Campbell the rookie wide receiver?  Looks like  he will be sidelined tonight, at least for this Bills game. Parris hasn't practiced since Saturday in Colts training camp, probably his hamstring injury is more severe, ansd taking longer to heal. But we will definitely see him in the sidelines and he went with the Colts to Buffalo.


    Colts and the NFL teams usually don't prepare a pregame injury report during the preseason games.

  6. Welcome back, Colts fans!  :default_20smile:  Our Indianapolis Colts begins  both their 71th season as a member of the NFL as they start their 2019 NFL Preseason Schedule through the rest of August, and the NFL celebrates their 100th anniversary, as the Colts are in Western New York state to play the Buffalo Bills.


    Frank Reich begins his second full season as the Colts Head Coach. NFL Comeback  Andrew Luck also begins his seventh season in the NFL as a Colt player, and his second full season 


    WR T.Y. Hilton also looks recovered and healthy after enduring leg and ankle injuries he endued during December and the Colts playoffs games at Houston and Kansas City,  and off-season surgery and rehab.


    The 2019 NFL Draft class also makes their debut on the playing field, to see live game action tonight, with their ten drafted players, and led by CB Rock Ya-Shin from Temple University.


    A few of the established Colts veteran players including Andrew Luck and T.Y. Hilton may be limited offensive plays, while the rookies, drafted and undrafted, even signed free agents and veterans, have a chance to get noticed by the coaches with their plays, as all of them try to make the cut from the current 90-man training camp roster, to the final 53-man regular season roster.


    Colts and Bills have played 60 games between each other since the 1970 AFL-NFL merger, with the Bills leading the all-time regular season series at 37-32-1, but are playing their ninth preseason game.  Winner will break the current 4-4 preseason record.


    Indianapolis  evened the preseason record  with Buffalo in both teams last meeting played three years ago, edging the Bills, also played at Buffalo back on August 13.  Like tonight, the Colts played their first preseason game at the Bills instead of their second game in 2016.  Colts were scheduled to play in the Pro Football Hall Of Fame Game at Canton, Ohio with the Packers on August 7, 2016, but was cancelled because of loose turf, field conditions.


    WXIN FOX Channel 59 is televising all four 2019 Colts preseason games, beginning with their pregame show at 6:30 PM, followed by the game coverage at 7:00 PM EST.  WXIN FOX 59  the flagship station in the Colts Preseason Television Network, with 10  network affiliates, 9 in Indiana, and 1 in Champaign, Illinois, all games seen live on HD.


    A great evening for NFL football tonight at Western New York State, as Sunny skies at 73 degrees, is the game forecast inside New Era Cap Field at Orchard Park, NY, for the 7:05 PM kickoff, along with 7% precipitation, 67% humidity, and western winds at 11 miles per hour.


    Colts are wearing their white helmets, Nike blue jerseys and white pants, while the Bills dress in all  white uniforms, white helmets, Nike white jerseys and pants.


    NO injuries to all the Colts and Bills players that are making the cut throughout the preseason to the top 53-man regular season roster, should be an entertaining first preseason game tonight, and LET'S GO COLTS!!!!!   :coltslogo:   :1colts:  :colts:  :coltslogo:

  7. Hi, Colts fans..  Our 2019 Indianapolis Colts won't play their first preseason game on the field until next week at the Buffalo Bills, but the BFL's 100 season and the 2019 NFL Preseason officially begins tonight when Denver Broncos play the Atlanta Falcons in the annual 2019 Pro Football Hall Of Fame Game.  The Class of 2019 will also be inducted later this weekend.


    NBC Sports will televise the game live throughout the USA, with kickoff from the Tom Benson Hall Of Fame Stadium in Canton, Ohio, right after 8:05 PM, Eastern Standard Time.


    NO injuries, and GO NFL!




  8. Your facts are right, 2006Coltsbestever!   LeBron should be completely healthy from his late season injury - I think he missed the last two or three games of the regular season and should be ready alsong with AD, for the Lakers training camp in September.   Safe to say the competition went up another level by the free agent signings of both the Lakers and the Clippers this summer, and I look forward when both teams play 5 or 6 games during the regular season.  I hope those games can be televised on both ESPN and TNT.  And they share the same venue, Staples Center.  


    Lakers though will initially have to adjust to new Head Coach Frank Vogel's basketball scheme, and also the additions of Miles Simon and Jason Kidd (?)  as assistant coaches, and stability in the Lakers front office and management since Jeannie Buss is still the team owner, after Jeannie fired his brother, Jim Buss, and Magic Johnson resigned.  General Manager Rob Perlinka kept the LA Lakers competetive by recruiting and signing Anthony Davis and other players.   Both the Lakers and Clippers reloaded with veteran, and entertaining talent we NBA fans will look forward to when the 2019-20 NBA Regular Season begins in October!

  9. .....and former Pacer Paul George signed with the LA Clippers after coming from the OKC Thunder.  Kawhi Leonard reduced his contract from four years to  a two-year contract to equal  George's two-year contract. Seems based on talent, the Clippers are the better LA team than the Lakers.  Lakers lost the free-agent agent signing to Leonard.   Leonard grew up in Southern California, played his high school ball in Moreno Valley and Riverside, CA, then played his college ball as a San Diego State Aztec.

  10. And here's the news, 2006Coltsbestever and Colts fans, from https://www.nba.com/ .  


    A juggernaut of the 2019 NBA Free Agency period IMO.   I wonder and also hope if the NBA considers having their free agency period right after the NBA Finals, then move down the NBA Draft as late as late June to early July,  just before the NBA Summer Leagues.  Similar to the NFL, when veteran free agency starts by mid-March, and the NFL Draft on the last week of April?  Just sayin'.  Maybe bring more parody within the entire NBA.


    BTW,  are the Pacers involved in this year's NBA Free Agent acquiring and signings?

  11. Hi, Colts fans.  Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim pitcher Tyler Skaggs abruptly passed away in Dallas/Fort Worth Monday afternoon at 3:18 Eastern Standard Time..   His Angels are in town to play the first of a four-game series with the Texas Rangers, but Monday Night's game at Globe Life Park in Arlington, Texas, is postponed.  Story developing on how, and the circumstances Skaggs died, after the Angels arrived in Texas.


    Skaggs just pitched a game for the Angels against the Oakland A's at Angel Stadium in Anaheim, CA  last Saturday Night.  RIP  Tyler.

  12. Good morning, 2006Coltsbestever (sorry)!    I admit to have in mind that the Colts can try to draft, around this year's draft. and surround players to improve their offense even more now that we have a healthy Andrew Luck,  I can probably say the Colts management may likely draft a wide receiver or two, in light of T.Y. Hilton enduring his leg injury if you remember, last December, and into the playoff games at the Texans and Chiefs.

  13. Hi, Colts Nation!  :default_20smile:  NFl Draft Evening is finally here as the 2019 NFL Draft begins tonight from Nashvillle, TN ,   after 8:00 PM Eastern Time.  Colts own the 26th overall pick in the first round of the NFL Draft.  Primary needs by player position  for our Colts include help in Defensive Line, Linebacker, Offensive Line, Safety, and Wide Receiver.


    NFL Network and ESPN will provide the drama, and maneuvering by  the Colts and the other NFL teams through  potential trades and  draft picks during the course of the entire NFL Draft through Saturday.


    We wish Colts team owner Jim Irsay, General Manager Chris Ballard, Head Coach Frank Reich, and the assistant coaches, player personnel, and team scouts as they plan their strategy to continue forming the 2019 Indianapolis Colts from their War Room.


    Great luck and GO COLTS!!!!!   :coltslogo:  :1colts:  :colts:  :coltshelmet:  :coltslogo:    :D
