Colts Vs. Bills Preseason Game Day Thread

Recommended Posts

Welcome back to gameday Colts fans! Our Colts begin their 30th anniversary here in Indianapolis as they host the visiting Buffalo Bills this afternoon with the gametime and kickoff from LOS 1;35PM. Eastern Standard Time.

Chuck Pagano also returns in his second year as Head Coach, as is QB Andrew Luck, who led the Colts in the greatest regular season turnaround in team history from 3-13 iin 2011, to 11-5 in 2012, and a playoff berth, losing abruptly to eventual Super Bowl XLVII Champion Baltimore Ravens.

Fans and the Colts coaching staff will also see the rookies recently picked from the recent NFL Draft play on the field this afternoon, including first round pick DE Bjorn Werner from Florida State, S John Boyett, TE Justice Cunningham, C Khaled Holmes, DT Montori Hughes, G Hugh Thornton, and RB Kerwynn Williams.

Key veteran additions include CB Vontae Davis in a trade with Miami, Tim Hasselback, expected to backup Andrew Luck at QB, CB Greg Toler, and S Laron Landry.

Key losses from last year's Colts team from 2012 though include, Donnie Avery, Austin Collie, Dwight Freeney, Jerry Hughes, Drew Stanton, and Tom Zbikowski.

Veteran Indiana broadcaster Don Fischer announces the live TV play-by-play, along with new TV game analyst Barry Krauss, on all Colts preseason games live on WNDY My Channel 23, and replayed later nationally on the NFL Network, live on HD.

Bob Lamey, our 'Voice Of The Colts,' also announces all Colts games this season on radio, along with new radio game analyst and former Colt QB Jim Sorgi, simulcast on Colts flagships stations WFNI ESPN SportsRadio 1070AM, and WLHK 97.1FM, and the Colts Radio Network.

No injuries as all the Colts players, including the rookies, veterans, and free agents, all audition this month to make the 53-man regular season roster. Exciting Colts football is back, and GO COLTS!!! :cheer::rock::excited::coltshelmet::coltshorse::coltsfb::coltslogo::colts::coltshelmet::cheer:

You know we are ready to ROCK and ROLL when our great Colts friend LucasOilStadium gets us CHARGED with the Game Day Thread!!!  Like we really needed to be charged any more!!!   :)  Great job LOS!!!  Are YOU READY Colts fans???

 

I actually got some tickets for today....so I will miss today's thread, but I cannot wait to analyze the game instead of seeing bits and pieces...and replays on TV.  

 

I am looking forward to seeing the OL and DL (Chemistry and footwork/technique) as well as Justice Cunningham seeing a lot of work in place of Dwayne Allen.  Here's to Allen's injury not being of a 'pesky' nature that keeps him out for any extended time.

 

I will be on here this morning. (About 10 AM EDT)  If anyone wants me to look at someone in particular feel free to post or send a PM.  Enjoy the game!   :colts:  :colts:  :colts:  :coltsfb:  :coltsfb:  :coltsfb:  :coltslogo:  :coltslogo:  :coltslogo: !!!!!

Is Bob Lamey going to call the game on the NFL Network today? I've noticed that the other preseason games they've televised have used the home play-by-play guy and I'm hoping to be able to hear Bob call this one. Bob is the best!

Justin Hickman was just on the 1070 pre-game with Joe Stasniak, Jim Sorgi and Jeffrey Gorman and raved about the leadership of Freeman and Mathis.

PrincetonTiger, and all the Colts fans here on the board, the Colts and many of the NFL teams  choose to wear the white jerseys (especially the Cowboys) at their  home stadiums during the preseason in August, and the first  month of the regular season in September. Colts are wearing white today because  to reflect their uniforms from the sun and heat during the summer, and stay cool, while they play on the field, while the Bills blue jerseys, or any dark jersey absorb the heat inside their bodies, while they play on their line of scrimmage.

 

Weather at Downtown Indianapolis is at 82 degrees and Sunny and Clear at kickoff, so I'm sure the roof at LOS is open at gametime. Hopefully the white jerseys and pants is the the Colts advantage. GO COLTS!  :cheer:  :blueshoe:  :coltshelmet:  :colts:  :coltslogo:

Is WNDY part of your local package

Yeah, I think so. It's one of the only local non HD channels. I'll just record it later on the NFL chan, but it's just kind of annoying.

the game is in HD here in the Pocket(Colts Network)

I'm just complaining, haha. It is kind of odd they don't have it in HD on WNDY (Direct TV). My cousin has AT&T Uverse he just said he gets it in HD.

    • I saw a good comment somebody made on YouTube They mentioned how Jacoby has shown elite traits a few times this year. Just needs to show more of it on a consistent basis. I can’t wait to get all the WR back and see what happens.  We seen a couple of deep tries Sunday which was nice. Even if you don’t connect it still makes the other team team think about it.
    • Houston's standard MO is to double the top WR/TE threat. And they're so bad we should have plenty of options regardless if TY is back or not. Of course we want TY to play, but there should be plenty of folks open regardless.
    • @Superman I see you asked for evidence of turf being a factor. I remember posting some research on it here a while ago but I cannot find it now... those posts might be archived or something. From what I remember there are several different types of artificial turf that is used in the league + the natural grass. The type of artificial turf we have is the worst for injuries with natural grass being the safest. That's not to say that any particular injury this year is attributable to the turf, but to me it's kind of obvious that different surfaces with different properties will lead to different health results over long term, big samples. I will try to find it again later but I can't promise I will be able to.    At some point I also posted about some research that tried to separate different factors for injuries outside of luck (turf, coaching, etc.) but my memories are not very fresh on this one so I cannot remember what that one found out... 
    • And the Packers as far as Rodgers takes them, and the Chiefs as far as Mahomes takes them, and the Colts as far as Brissett takes them, as we saw when Hoyer was forced to play...   You can use that narrative with every team. 
    • I really feel good about this game. Houston will be angry after losing so bad on Sunday. This will cause them to commit more penalties. Watt being out is going to be a real issue so I expect we will win a close game  14-10 Colts
