Colts Vs. Bengals Preseason Game Night Thread


Recommended Posts

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..

    • Yeah, I know. But I can’t see him getting much more than 5-6 per going forward. At the most
    • This!  I think we'll win enough games to secure a Wild Card, but we need help to win the AFC South and Tennessee dropping a conference game like this could help us alot in that regard.
    • I think it could be close. Titans are a good team but they aren’t the Chiefs. They are in that second group with the colts and Browns. Colts just need to take care of business and whatever happens in this game helps us. If we lose it doesn’t matter what happens in this game.
    • I doubt he’s going from roughly $11 mill to the vet minimum.    He’d likely be willing to take a pay cut, but that far down I think is hard to see.   Also, there has to be incentives to give him a chance to earn some of that back.   
    • I get that, and the short yardage “Jacoby” package has been pretty effective, save for Week 1 in which nothing seemed to work. I thought he would be a great fit in Dallas after Dak went down, but I credit Ballard for not just giving him away, perhaps Jerry Jones wasn’t willing to panic & overpay, especially with Andy Dalton on the roster but when he got hurt as well, I’ll bet Jones would’ve preferred another option at quarterback to rookie Ben DiNucci. All that occurred before the NFL trading deadline, and I think the Cowboys could be running away with their sorry Division had they acquired Brissett.   With that said, he is terrific insurance here in the event that Philip couldn’t go, and his presence saves the Colts from having to rely on a rookie QB in the event of that disastrous circumstance.
