Colts @ Buccaneers Game Night Thread

Recommended Posts

Hi, Colts fans! Veteran backup QB Curtis Painter earns his first career start, as the Colts are in Tampa Bay to play the Buccaneers for the first time in eight years. Colts are trying to avoid an 0-4 start this season, and are also making their second appearance in primetime national television in as many weeks, tonight on ESPN's Monday Night Football.

Colts return to Tampa where, through Peyton Manning's leadership, set the NFL record for quickest comeback in NFL history, scoring three touchdowns within the last five minuites of regulation, and winning in overtime 38-35 with Mike Vanderjagt's FG back on October 6, 2003. Both the Colts and Buccaneers are meeting for the 12th time during the NFL regular season tonight, with the Colts leading the all-time series 7-4, and 3-2 in Tampa.

Colts also defeated the Buccaneers in their recent meeting three years ago at the RCA Dome 33-14 back on October 7, 2007, despite Marvin Harrison and Joseph Addai not playing due to their injuries.

Mike Tirico, Jon Gruden, and Ron Jaworski will announce the live TV game commentary along with sideline reporter Wendi Nix for ESPN's Monday Night Football on HD. Bob Lamey, Wil Wolford, will also announce the live radio game commentary along with sideline reporter Kevin Lee simulcast on flagship stations WFNI ESPN Radio 1070AM and WHNK Country 98.1FM, and the Colts Radio Network.

Local weather forecast at Raymond James Stadium in Tampa for tonight's 8:30PM kickoff is clear evening skies at 78 degrees, feels like 76 degrees, 0% precipitiation, 53% humidity, and mild northern winds at 8 miles per hour.

Visiting Colts tonight may wear their matching white road jerseys and pants, while the host Buccaneers will wear their red home jerseys, and pewter pants.

All NFL teams, including both the Colts and Buccaneers tonight, are wearing pink NFL equipment and apparel throughout thr month of October both on the field, and in their sidelines during tonight's game, to traditionally recognize the NFL's support of Breast Cancer Awareness Month.

I wish the Colts no injuries, and execute their game plan successfully on offense, defense, and special teams. Please prevail for your first win for yourselves, and your fans back in Indiana, and GO COLTS!!!!!

I remember that Monday night Bucs game. I went to bed with tears in my eyes angry at how bad the Colts were doing.

Woke up, saw the ESPN ticker at the bottom of the screen and saw that we had won the game. I was in shock for about 10 minutes.

Who were those yo-yos singing national anthem?

Rosanne Barr sounded better than them!

Talk about TONE DEAF !

There must have been a raffle.

Tell them to go back to their van down by the river.

Hopefully Garcon got his drop out of the way early tonight.

Good looking front line on the first play.

GO COLTS!

I like what I've seen. Painter just a split second too fast with that pass to reggie. The kid is ready

Donald Brown was in after Carter, I hope Addai is okay.

Great first drive.

Best opening drive of the season. Great to see the no huddle back.

Painter looks GA-REAT so far. No jitters. Hopefully he can build on it because you know the Bucks will adjust.

Now time for the "D" to check in and continue last week's great work. Isn't going to be easy. A well balanced team here.

GO COLTS!

-d.

    • I think I know what you're talking about, that s#*t escalated quickly....   I didnt have a problem with your initial statement, I knew what you were driving at.  I can sympathize with with the fact that you could wish you had used different words though. That said, it wasn't nearly as personal, hateful, or damaging as some of the rhetoric it inspired.   It's a football forum after all and your initial comment should have been viewed through that lens imo.  Unfortunately we're living through a heartbreaking incident, a legitimate tragedy, and tensions are at a peak nationwide.    I appreciate you "being the bigger man" (or woman idk you personally and thus it's a mystery).  For whatever its worth though, apology accepted.   Go Colts
    • Out of the franchises that have never won a SB, to me it comes down to 3 teams that were the best = the 1984 Dolphins, 1990 Bills, and your 1998 Vikings. Those teams had would it took but just didn't finish. We didn't finish in 2005 but did in 2006 thankfully. I hate losing, when we lost in 2005 I even had my doubts we would win 'The 1'. Besides being great, it takes a lot of luck to win 1. Look at the Colts run in 2006, 5 Vinny FG's at Baltimore, come from behind win to beat the Pats after being down 21-3. It was just meant to happen. When Bob Sanders came back I knew deep down we were the favorites but the AFC was so deep that year I didn't want to jinx it.
    • As a Vikings fan with no big hope for the near future, I can attest you're absolutely right.    Yeah, one could always look at how they're team could've won more.    But only few have the presence of mind to know how winning that one is such a big feat.    If Randy Moss had won one for the Vikings especially '98 season, fans would think he should have got us more. But, now we know even getting there in the big game is not a given for all greats. It's difficult to think from that perspective after you have won 1 or more.
    • Just wanted to give you a like. Welcome to the forum.   Definitely hoping for health, but we are 5-6 deep at DE, with Autry/Lewis/Muhammed
    • 40. Tua Tagovailoa 39. Dwayne Haskins 38. Mitchell Trubisky 37. Justin Herbert 36. Taysom Hill 35. Jarred Stidham 34. Tyrod Taylor 33. Jameis Winston 32. Case Keenum 31. Nick Foles     This list is just ugly.    Makes me wonder where Burrow is going to end up?
