Colts @ New York Jets Game Day Thread


Recommended Posts

Hello to all Colts fans! :) Our 2-2 Indianapolis Colts are in East Rutherford, New Jersey, to play Marc Sanchez, Tim Tebow, and the 2-3 New York Jets in their 67th NFL regular season meeting.

Colts currently lead the overall series 40-26, and a rivalry that started when the then-Baltimore Colts defeated the N.Y. Jets 29-22 at Shea Stadium back on October 18, 1970 after the NFL-AFL merger. Indianapolis also defeated the N.Y. Jets in their last road visit to the New Jersey Meadowlands, winning 31-28 more than six years ago back on October 1, 2006. Colts scoring highlights in that win included scoring TD runs by Dominic Rhodes from 6 yards, Joseph Addai from 2 yards, Martin Gramatica's 20-yd FG, Bryan Fletcher's 2 yard TD pass from Peyton Manning, and Manning's, 1-yard TD run to seal the victory.

N.Y. Jets, though, unfortunately ended the Colts perfect season run in their last regular season meeting, winning 29-15, back on Week 16 of the 2009 season on December 27, 2009. Colts loss to the Jets made their record at the time 14-1, and also ended the Colts 23-game regular season winning streak. Colts Head Coach Jim Caldwell's decision to rest QB Peyton Manning for the upcoming playoffs at the time contributed to the loss, and the result also helped the N.Y. Jets increase their playoff chances with an 8-7 record.

Jim Nantz and Phil Simms will announce the NFL On CBS's primary singleheader game seen regionally throughout the US, and around the world to our US military personnel on the Armed Forces Broadcast Network, and locally in Indianapolis on WISH CBS 8 on HD.

Legendary broadcaster Bob Lamey, our 'Voice Of The Colts,' will also announce the live radio game play-by-play, with Will Wolford the game analysis and sideline reporter Kevin Lee simulcast on flagship stations WFNI ESPN SportsRadio 1070AM and WLHK Country 97.1FM, and the Colts/Vectren Radio Network.

Clear and partly cloudy skies at 65 degrees is the local weather forecast in the Colts first visit to Met Life Stadium for this afternoon's 1:05PM Eastern Standard Time kickoff, along with 58% precipitation, 10% humidity, and south/southwest winds at 15 miles per hour.

Visiting Colts will dress in their matching white road jerseys and pants, while the Jets will wear their green and white jerseys, and white pants.

Both the Colts and the Jets, and all NFL players, coaching, and team support staffs, and home team cheerleaders are expected to continue wearing pink authentic NFL apparel and accessories both on the field, and in the sidelines, to recognize the NFL's annual support of Breast Cancer Awareness Month throughout October.

NO injuries to both the Colts and Jets, and hope to Colts try to win their second game in a row, and third overall, for themselves, with the leadership of interim Head Coach Bruce Arians, as inspiration as Chick Pagano recovers from leukemia. Colts continue on the road to be, and as, 'Chuck Strong.' GO COLTS!!! :cheer::D ;) :blueshoe::helmet::coltslogo::coltshorse::coltsfb::colts::1colts: :ribbon: :cheer:

    • Hall of Fame running back Gale Sayers died yesterday (9/23/20) of complications from dementia. He was 77. It seems that he suffered with dementia for many years.     Most of us never saw him play but those who saw him thought he was a dynamic runner. I read Brian Piccolo: A Short Season many years well before I had an appreciation for football. I enjoyed the book as well as the movie Brian's Song.   Anyone have memories of Gale Sayers?
    • Ehh, I don't really agree.    Herbert went at #6. He wasn't really in play for the Colts, who had #13. And if you do move up and he's not right for you, that's definitely worse than passing on a QB who winds up being pretty good. I don't think a GM should operate from the stance that their favorite QB in the draft is going to become Patrick Mahomes; on average, first round QBs underperform, not overperform. So not addressing QB isn't worse, IMO, not when we're talking about giving up significant assets to get the guy you want.   Love hasn't played yet. Preliminary reports aren't thrilling. We'll see how he turns out, but the Colts still had a reasonable chance to get him, and chose not to make a move. He didn't pass on Love to grab a DT.    And just to repeat myself, we don't know what Herbert and Love will wind up being. I like them both. I'm not heartbroken we didn't draft either of them. Time will tell whether I'm underselling this.   They chose to go with a veteran bridge QB, and see what happens. That has a chance to work for us for the next season or two, and then we'll see whether we have a guy that can take the reins.    Lastly, 3T is super important for our team. It's become critical for any good defense, and we've literally never had game breaker at that position. If Buckner works out for us, that move will be a winner.
    • I don't know about that one... but this was the playoffs of the 2003 season, Manning was at the very beginning of his stretch of dominance over the league. Dungy was also a very conservative head coach, even for 2003. Can't imagine any coach giving these instructions in 2020, but the league has become a lot more progressive in a relatively short period of time.    It was two years later in the playoffs against the Steelers when PM had to shoo the punt team off the field for a 4th down play. We all remember the visual. But I decided to look up the play by play. It was 21-3, Steelers, and that 4th down play was the last play of the 3rd quarter, ball at the Indy 36. It's hard to imagine any coach punting in that situation right now, especially with a QB who just won MVP by throwing 49 TDs the previous season. But Dungy's reflex was to punt, and it took PM, back to back MVP winner, QB of a team that started the season 13-0, to convince Dungy to let the offense go for it. Dungy mouthed his response: "It's on you."    My point is that it wouldn't surprise me to find out that Dungy wasn't a fan of PM having so much control at the line of scrimmage, especially back in 2003/2004, on the road, AFFCG.
