Colts Vs. Bengals Preseason Game Night Thread

Hi, Colts fans! Our Indianapolis Colts conclude their preseason hosting the Cincinnati Bengals at LOS. :bengals: A win by the Colts would finish both Indianapolis and Cincinnati's preseason at 2-2.

Colts the the Bengals in the last preseason meeting between the teams 17-13 at Paul Brown Stadium on September 1, 2011, their only win in the 2011 preseason. Indianapolis went back to Cincinnati in Week 6 of the regular season, and the Bengals avenged the preseason loss when they defeated the Colts, without Peyton Manning, 27-17, on October 16. Bengals lead the all-time preseason series (and Interstate 74 rivalry between the cities) 13-7 entering tonight.

Andrew Luck, and the starting offense and defense units of both the Colts and Bengals probably will sit out on tonight's preseason finale. Many of the reserve players, rookies, and veterans and free agents signed during the off-season are on the bubble as all NFL rosters must be reduced from the present 75 man, to the final 53-man regular season roster by Friday Night.

NO injuries to both the Colts and Bengals in their preseason finale tonight, and GO COLTS!!! :cheer::coltshelmet::coltslogo::colts::1colts::coltshorse::coltsfb::helmet::blueshoe::D:cheer:

Once again, thanks to Lucas Oil Stadium for setting us fans up for a day/afternoon/night of Colt's football!!!! Nobody does it better IMO!!!

While this game might not be a thriller, (maybe a snoozer) it will make or break a lot of player's dreams. Over 700 players will be unemployed after the next rounds of cuts. As hard as our young team has played, this is a final opportunity to make a difference in a game setting.

I am going to miss this thread tonight....other than an occasional check in. I am watching the game with my fiance that really loves the Colts and wants to learn football.....

So instead of my 'nutty' game day antics here....I will be pointing out the nuances of the game to the one I love....may have to give y'all some likes at halftime. :)

A big thank you again to LOS for getting us 'pumped up' each and every week. GO :coltslogo: !!!!!!!!!!!!!

Enjoy the game guys and gals...Have a sick young lady to see to!! Pagano said we will see a lot of Stanton tonight. Expect starters ONLY a couple of series....He said cuts: "It is the toughest part of the job, " and they need to leave everything on the field" to make the the roster....or not. Good night and enjoy!! Go Colts! I will miss everyone's insight!!! :coltslogo: :coltslogo: :coltslogo:

I think they're gonna take it easy this game so as to prevent any more injuries. I think they said Mathis has a shoulder problem, Powers has knee issues, etc.

Yeah it sucks our defense is broken! So many darn injuries. Colts just have severely bad luck with injuries..

    • This take is wild to me.   Imagine Tua being 'cleared' by the medical staff and then insisting that he doesn't feel right and refusing to go back in. Imagine the way that everyone - fans, media, teammates - would react to that. We've already got * fans of this team insisting that Leonard should be playing because he was able to stand on the sideline and cheer the team on against the Chiefs - people questioning his commitment.   Almost every player is likely to *want* to go back in because they're competitive and relentless by their very nature. It's tough to get to the NFL if you're not a little crazy like that. But even more importantly, every player is *forced* to want to go back in because their entire livelihood depends on it. Tua hasn't had a great start to his career. He's just getting hot and you expect him to say, 'Nah coach, stick Teddy out there. I'm gonna sit this one out. He can win the game as well as I can so it's all good.' You need a little head wobble of your own if you think that constitutes lying or if you think any player is going to say something like that.   It's the players that put their lives on the line when they take the field. They make a fantastic living doing it, and they do it by choice, but there are a huge number of people who also make a great living in the NFL without ever having to place themselves in equally dangerous situations. It's the responsibility of those people - owners, doctors, NFL staff, etc. - to safeguard the players on whom the league relies because they're not always in a position to safeguard themselves.
    • I want him to play but I absolutely want the medical staff to err on the side of caution. A random win in Week 4 isn't worth trading Leonard's long-term health for. You can't be messing around and rolling the dice when it comes to the back/spine.      It's the job of the NFL and its organisations to try to keep the players safe though, not place them in harm's way intentionally. At least, it should be.    That's like saying people shouldn't have to wear seatbelts when they drive because there's a chance that they'll crash and die anyway. I think that's silly.   He didn't pass the rules that were in place, which is a huge part of the problem. Gross Motor Instability is supposed to be an immediate removal from the game and he's placed into concussion protocol. Gross Motor Instability is exactly what Tua displayed but he returned to the game anyway. The only way this could happen is if his instability was proven to be orthopaedic rather than neurological, and there's simply no way that that was the case. 
    • Yeah, the last time Buckner was out vs. Henry - that went really well.  It was a demoralizing 2000s style rush defense performance.
    • taylor is mot running as well since glow is gone
    • I am betting Leonard plays.  The fact he hasn’t been ruled out means he’s very close.  Buckner I think the signs are pointing to him not playing and that’s concerning.  The one game he missed vs the Titans they ran wild.
