Colts Vs. Browns Game Day Thread

Recommended Posts

Hi, Colts Fans! :) Indianapolis Colts will try to even their record and earn their third win as they host the visiting Cleveland Browns at LOS.

This afternoon will not only feature the matchup of first round rookie quarterbacks, the Colts First Overall Pick Andrew Luck of Stanford, and 22nd Overall Pick Brandon Weeden of Oklahoma State, but also the rematch when both played in the 2012 Fiesta Bowl in Glendale Arizona, to wrap their college careers. Luck threw for 347 yards with two TD's and one INT in the game, but his Stanford Cardinal lost to Weeden's Oklahoma State Cowboys in overtime 38-41. Weeden threw 399 passing yards including throwing three TD's to current Jacksonville Jaguars receiver Justin Blackmon. Luck finished his college career throwing 10,387 yards, including 82 touchdowns, during his four years with the Stanford Cardinal.

Colts Head Coach Chuck Pagano also served as the Browns secondary coach from 2001 through 2004, and offensive coordinator/interim Head Coach Bruce Arians was the Browns offensive coordinator from 2001-2003.

Browns currently lead the all-time regular season series 14 games to 12, and a rivalry that started when the then-Baltimore Colts defeated the Browns 21-7 at Cleveland Municipal Stadium back on November 11, 1956. Both teams also split 2-2 in the NFL Playoffs.

Cleveland was able to snap their five-game regular season losing streak to the Colts at Indianapolis's expense defeating them in their last meeting 27-19 at LOS on September 18, 2011. Their win was their first since defeating the Colts 21-14 back on September 25, 1994. Colts last defeated the Browns at Indianapolis, winning 13-6 at the RCA Dome, back on September 25, 2005.

Kevin Harlan and former Bengals defensive back Solomon Wilcotts are announcing the live TV game commentary for The NFL On CBS, seen regionally in the Midwest and the Ohio Valley, the San Francisco/Oakland Bay Area, and in Indianapolis on WISH CBS 8 on HD.

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

LOS's roof may be closed for this afternoon's 1:05PM Eastern Standard Time kickoff because although there are Sunny skies, the local forecast in the stadium area in Downtown Indianapolis is cool at 61 degrees, feels like 60 degrees, 60% precipitaion, 0% humidity, and southern winds at 10 miles per hour.

Browns may dress in their matching white jerseys and pants, while the host Colts are wearing their blue home jerseys, and white pants.

Both the Colts and Browns, and all NFL players, coaches and team supporting staff, cheerleaders, and even fans this weekend may continue to wear the authentic pink NFL apparel and accessories to recognize the NFL's annual support, of Breast Cancer Awareness Month.

NO injuries to both the Colts and Browns, but hope Indianapolis even exceed 2011 win record at 3-3 with a win this afternoon. GO COLTS!!! :D:cheer::helmet::coltslogo::coltshorse::colts::coltsfb::1colts: :ribbon: :cheer:

Now that is a SERIOUS introduction to a great Colts day of football.....wondering about the roof......temp is perfect for football with 5-10mph winds...

We need the 12th man, the 13th man (Coach Pagano) and all of the great forum contributors to stay postitive today and will this banged up team to a win, and get more healthy players back next week. We need some big plays from 'unknowns' on defense and special teams.

Thanks as always for a great game day thread! Love it! I am ready for the game Are you???? :yes: :shoe: :helmet::coltshelmet::coltslogo::coltshorse::coltsfb::colts: :colts: :colts:

It will feel like 68 in the stadium if the roof is open but its probably better to have the roof closed because ironically, it's too sunny.

That's a play where Addai and his jukes would have made the tackler miss

This is week 7, Addai wouldn't be playing anyway (I'm not even joking, this was the point in the season the last couple years he would get hurt).

    • I've been optimistic about JB since we lost our starter (Rest his soul) . But every Sunday (because hes unproven) I get nervous about JB and lose faith. So far, hes done a very good job. Doing just enough to keep us in games.    Playing vs Houston and seeing how well he did (late game the whole team went prevent so not too worried there), gave me a lot more confidence. But it's hard to trust a guy who has to earn it in front of literally everyone in the league.    I'll tell you what I do like however.  Because Brissett doesn't have this mega obvious talent as a QB, they arent throwing the ball constantly. It's like because you have a franchise QB, you feel this need to throw the ball, even in situations you shouldn't. You rarely establish a ground game, and when you do, it is only in compliment to the pass.    The Colts keep winning in different ways. They are multifaceted. So they CAN and DO play to their opponents weaknesses, and and have the ability to play almost any kind of offense (from what we have seen so far)..   with a top 5-7 QB, you just pass more. Vs KC, we would have passed more with any of the top 5 QBs in the NFL. But we didnt. Because we didnt have a top 5 QB to blur our vision from their weakness and our strength.. I think Frank experiencing this is great for our future. If JB becomes a top 10 QB (in most stats), this could mean heaps in the sense of valuing this team as a whole. Instead of everything being built around the QB, the team is built around the lines and go out.     Something I was thinking about earlier with Brady. It is my opinion that he is a system QB. He is the best system QB of all time. But hes in the perfect system for his strengths to flourish. Sometimes it's just better to have the right system QB. Maybe JB is the perfect system QB for our system. Just a thought guys.    We need to remember our addiction to winning as fans indeed blurs our own vision from seeing the true reality of things. 
    • Just saying the Jets aren't out of there minds suggesting it.
    • Seriously? That's the first I heard of that.   If that's true, that is very impressive for a backup QB to display that kind of leadership.   Never under estimate the importance of proper leadership. Sometimes I wondered if Andrew was assertive enough and this little nugget is an example of that. Jacoby on the other hand must be very assertive to have the guts to call a meeting like that. That meeting turned our season around and that's quite an impact from a backup QB that barely took any snaps last year. That's extremely impressive to me.   This team is in a great, great place if he can fill the void left by Andrew and his retirement. Its looking good so far.
    • The Colts are to the Texans what the Pats used to be to the Manning Colts. Texan fans hate the Colts with a passion. I never wear any of my Colts shirts when they play here in Houston.
    • O'Brien is in his last year if the Texans don't make the playoffs.
