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).

    • To go right along with your tired argument, again.
    • Jacoby is good, hes not great, hes not elite.  In time, with the right team around him and the right coaching he might be great, but probably never elite.     Past few years hes been a very good backup, just because he was thrust into a starting role doesnt mean his skillset automatically makes the leap with him.  The demands on that skillset do, but the set is the same.   I like Jacoby alot, I'm glad we have him.  I honestly believe hes the right guy for right now.  Given the circumstances we couldn't have done better and I've really enjoyed watching him this year.  But hes a "top 20" qb in the best assessment of the people around him.  Not exactly glowing, but probably pretty fair.   The clock ticks on these mid talent dudes tho.  Unfortunately, as time moves on, his flaws will probably become more apparent than his strengths.   I'm not saying he cant improve, it's just that I believe those improvements will be marginal at best.  At this level there are so many intangibles, physical traits, mental acuity, etc that all eventually top out long before things like desire, skill, leadership, and work ethic.   If hes going to succeed it's not going to be on his own.  It will be as much about the team they build around him, and a scheme that continues to feature what he does best.  It's a much tougher proposition and it's going to lead to neverending debate in forums like these.  But its not ever going to be all about jacoby.    
    • His pod casts are always a good listen. I'm at work so I cant dig through and give you the exact spot right now but the whole thing is good if you cant get enough colts info.   
    • That’s because he through 3 INT. We didn’t come close to losing because of one missed point. Miami’s offense was given 13 points and didn’t even have to move the ball  much to get a FG.     Read the post. I said the Pitt game. As for the Miami game we lost by less that the TD Ebron  botched but I didn't refer to that game.     Not surprised you are not answering this post Chloie. Didn't answer it last week either.
    • I hear ya, but...  Benadryl.     2nd 'consecutive' year starting... with same scheme and offensive coordinator.   These were not the nearly the same in JB7's case.   And after 4 full years under Charlie Weis in the Earhardt-Perkins system he installed there (and still use),  Weis moved on and also told TB12 he had nothing more for him     Different schemes and different offensive coordinators, with a year on the pine in between. Every situation is unique.  Like Aaron Rodger year 4...     Charlie Weis ( and BB ) saw the 'it' factor in a young Tom Brady. Weis says he saw it in JB7 as well. (as, apparently, did Bill Parcells).  It's at least because of these 2 endorsements I placed my trust in Reich and JB7, and still do until >30 starts and 4 years manning the helm.   BTW, Pat Kirwan labeled JB7 as backup QB... until recently. He said JB7 won him over as a true blue NFL starting QB.   Time will tell.
