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!

    • Agree. I think people underestimate the ability of coaches to tailor offenses towards their best players. This is especially true for the coaches that are actually good, which I think Arians is(even though I too have some thoughts on his offense and playcalling).    You might actually argue Ben and Luck especially were used the way they were by Arians precisely because they they can actually do it and can actually mitigate some of the drawbacks of playing that type of offense. I think Arians is plenty smart enough to adjust his offense to what Brady can and cannot do. I still think Brady can be one of the better passers in the intermediate range and even take some shots downfield when well protected and he will have some of the best supporting casts and weapons he's had recently. I don't think Arians will ask Brady to do what he was asking Luck to do. 
    • Or their putting out players to excel a play. For instance, a hard PA that looks like a run. Teams will buy it's a run more if Pascal is on the field then Campbell. All I'm saying is, don't sleep on Pascal just because we took two WRs early. We can take advantage of each of their best traits.
    • Not sure TB12 would make it to Bye Week if Arians was the playcaller
    • I have some thoughts on Arians' offense and playcalling, but Leftwich is the playcaller now. And I think they'll tailor things to fit Brady's strengths and maximize the weapons they have. I don't think Brady is as dangerous a passer as he once was, but it was only a couple years ago that he threw for 500 yards in the Super Bowl.    Arians' calling plays for Ben and Luck (and even Jameis) -- who thrived in a downfield passing attack, who liked to hold on to the ball and shrug off tacklers -- probably doesn't have a whole lot of significance for the 2020 Bucs with Brady. Arians might be stubborn, but he's not stupid.
    • I’d love to have Clowney.... and I’m a big believer in the high character players the Colts have targeted recently. But with the uncertainty over what the salary cap will look like next year, and the multiple free agents the Colts need to sign, it makes sense to be cautious. If they could get him on a one year affordable deal, heck yeah. But I suspect Clowney will hold out for a better deal than that....which is why Clowney and the Colts are not the best fit. Gonna have to roll with J. Houston and the kids.
