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).

    • He's certainly not irredeemable. There's just a lot more scrutiny that comes with the QB position, fair or not. You can be WR and do drugs, beat women/kids, and still get more chances. CK did none of that.   I'm pretty sure uncle Jim put a foot up his backside, and made a call to Frank. I hope that's enough (Jim's foot), and I think the Colts (and Frank) are a good spot to provide support for him. 
    • I've been touting 2020 as "the year" for a while now.  I might be a year too early, but in watching the league this year one thing has struck me:  there aren't any truly "elite" teams out there.  Yes some are better than others, but IMHO the difference between the top and the bottom isn't as great as it used to be.  The Colts are clearly among the average teams, so I think with another shrewd draft (and that Skins round 2 pick sure looks good!) and a couple of impact FA's, I think this team can contend next year.  And Mr. Brady isn't going to be around much longer either.
    • Just to bring this back to last Sunday. Reich should of given hoyer all the snaps in practice.  Because if Jacoby could of went he would of  been fine with no reps. Then we would of had two QB prepared.
    • Agree 100% on Willis from a box perspective. He'll be very good if that's where they focus him. On Okereke, he gets swallowed up easily vs the run. I just don't see that improving a lot with his build. He came from one of the best strength programs in D1, so I just think he's topped out in that space as well. I think that's why they're trying him out in the SAM space.   I think Rock will be fine. Most of his errors are "rookie" type errors you can expect being tossed into the deep end. Physically he's fine. I think the mental part will catch up.
    • That is exactly why the Colts are what they are and teams like the Patriots are a dynasty.  That emotional attachment did not serve Irsay well during the Pagano & Griggson era...did it?   He lost a franchise quarterback as a net result of all of this misplaced attachment because stayed too long with Griggson and Pagano who could not keep Luck out of harm’s way.   Vinny is a legend who has great exploits on his resume.  We get it.  However, I’d argue that most of his greatness was earned wearing another team’s uniform...the Patriots.  He kicked them to 3 Super Bowl titles compared to one in Indy.  He made his name and reputation with the Patriots.  Sure he has played for the Colts longer but his formulative and most accomplished years were spent in New England. And still Belichick had no problem letting him walk in 2005 when he perceived it to be in the best interest of the Patriots.  If Vinatieri was stinking it up like this with the Pats this year he would surely be gone by now...and wisely so.  But Ballard, Reich and Irsay are led by the heart strings (as you imply) and as a result the team suffers on the field.  It’s a bad message sent to the rest of the team.  Certain players can under perform and be rewarded solely on the basis of who they are and what they have achieved in the past.  While others are held accountable for poor play.  It’s a double standard that eats away at that  locker room “culture” that Ballard supposedly values so much.  Well...we are no longer living in the past and the present day Adam Vinatieri is a liability on the field to this football team.  A liability that teams like the Colts choose to live with to their detriment.  That’s not admirable...it is downright foolish in my opinion.
