Colts @ Texans Game Day Thread


Recommended Posts

Hi, and welcome to Opening Week of the 2011 regular season with our Indianapolis Colts! Colts begin their journey to defend the AFC South Division title, and will also try to earn home field advantage throughout the AFC Playoffs later to earn an opportunity to play Super Bowl XLVI in Indianapolis next February 5.

Colts are depending on veteran Kerry Collins, who will be the first QB to start for the Colts today other than Peyton Manning since Jim Harbaugh started back in December 1997. Peyton is still recovering from his neck injury, and unfortunately his 208 game regular season consecutive game starts (227 games including playoffs) will end. Colts offense must also contend to the 3-4 defense by veteran coach Wade Phillips.

Colts defeated the Texans at LOS 30-17 on November 1, 2010, but lost in their last visit to Houston, with the Texans winning 34-24. Colts lead the All-Time Regular Season Series 16-2, but this year's Texans appear to be a much improved team, especially with the hiring of veteran coach Wade Phillips to lead his 3-4 defense, and veteran QB Matt Schaub.

Greg Gumbel and Dan Dierdorf will announce the live TV commentary for the NFL On CBS regionally in portions of Indiana, Illinois, and Texas, including WISH CBS 8 in Indianapolis in HD.

Bill Lamey, our 'Voice Of The Colts,' and Wil Wolford, will also announce the live TV game commentary along with sideline reporter Kevin Lee simulcast on flagship stations WFNI ESPN Radio 1070, and WHNK 98.1 FM, and the Colts Radio Network.

Colts will dress in their matching white jerseys and pants, while the Texans will wear their home blue jerseys, and white pants on the field.

Reliant's Stadium's roof in Houston should be closed, with a controlled climate at 70 degrees inside, from the local subtropical weather outside for the 1:05PM Eastern Standard Time kickoff because outside the forecast is Sunny and Clear Skies at 91 degrees, feels like 93 degrees, 0% precipitation, 38% humidity, and very mild southwest winds at 5 miles per hour.

NFL teams and the media coincidentally may remind us what occured in America ten years ago today.

I wish no injuries, and mininum penalties and turnovers. Play safely, and GO COLTS!!!!!

My heart and prayers go to Peyton and family. Praying for a speedy and healthy recovery. Its going to be difficult not watching Manning play after being spoiled for so many years. Get well Peyton.

Go lay the smack down on the Texans!!

Knowing Manning that's the best get well gift anyone could give him right now. I kinda wish Manning had twitter just to see what he has to say during the game and what he has to say about the guys calling the game on CBS.

Oh boy am I ready!!!! Gonna be so weird not seeing Peyton play (I may have to go back and watch my DVR'd games from the past couple seasons- just to get my Peyton fix, lol) but I'm anxious to see what Kerry can do. I think it will be a good game, and believe we can win. GO COLTS!!!!

Agreed! DVR fix is needed here also.

L0L I had this stupid crazy dream last night that Peyton had a series of neck surgeries and was out for the remainder of the year.......... L0L can you imagine?

I had a dream that Melvin Bullitt got injured and was out for the remainder of the year.

Ready for this. I turned on the NFL network pregame to get away from all the 9/11 talk and I tune right into Strahan talking about it.

It's not that I don't care, heck I was 4 blocks away when the planes hit. I had a meeting scheduled for 10:00 at windows on the world. It's just that there isn't a day that goes by that I don't think about it. I think about it every time a plane flies overhead. If I wanted to watch more about it I would put on the news, I put on the NFL because I am done, drained from thinking about it and I want a release.

    • By now most should realize the Colts prefer to retain their own as much as possible.  The defense is much improved with the signing in place but always room for improvement at key positions.  Below is my FA/resign list have already put together mid-season.   Colts FA ~58m: QB Jacoby Brissett 21.3 WR T.Y. Hilton 14.5 TE Jack Doyle 8.5 RDE Denico Autry 5.7 ILB Anthony Walker 2.2 S Tavon Wilson 750k DB Tremon Smith 750k (keeper?) WR Marcus Johnson 582k (practice squad) S Malik Hooker 4m WR Ashton Dulin 542k   Resign ~ 90m QB Philip Rivers 26.3m (probably will drop) DE Justin Houston 11m (3-4 good years left like Mathis and Freeny) DB Xavier Rhodes 8m RG Mark Glowinski 6.9 (improved game this year) RDT Grover Stewart 7.5m (most improved player on defense) DE Al-Quadin Muhammad 3m OL Le’Raven Clark 1.2m DB T.J. Carrie 1.2m (special teamer) TE Trey Burton 4.5m S George Odum 1.25 TE Mo Alie-Cox (RFA) – 6.25m DT Taylor Stallworth 1m (otc hit 4.8m in 1 game) LT Chaz Green 850k (special teams) WR Zach Pascal 7m RB Marlon Mack 4m (when healthy proved to be lead back) C Joey Hunt 300k RG Jake Eldrenkamp 200k (special teamer) Edge Cassius Marsh 250k (special teamer) TE Farrod Green 200k (practice squad) S Ibraheim Campbell 200k (special teamer)
    • Originally was thinking we would be closer to 100 mil in cap space but sounds more like 75 mil.  Kind of why for this example only budgeted ~40 mil for FAs after calculating ~95 mil to resign players while leaving a minimum of 20 mil to sign draftees.  This should still allow discretionary cap space for the Club to do as needed short-term.
    • I still have Patrick Jones II at the top of my early 2021 NFL Draft Board.  Would be happy to acquire either Weaver or Jones.  Other top names have seen but truthfully haven't been impressed with them as have been with these two players at RDE.
    • No one gets stoned anymore in civilized societies!   Wait, that didn't sound right...
    • We will need to hire a crime scene cleaning company to extract all the Titans' blood from the field turf at Lucas Oil Stadium
